Randy forwarded us photos he took of Summer at Wizard World Ohio Comic Con in Columbus in September of 2013. More, Randy kindly answered a couple questions and also provided us with impressions gained from meeting Summer.
In the photos, Summer is seen signing autographs at her booth or at the Firefly panel discussion with her Firefly co-star Ron Glass.
For our great viewing pleasure, you had the chance to take close up photos of Summer at her booth.

Read below Randy's summary of what it was like to meet Summer at the Comic Con in Columbus, Ohio in 2013.
"I had the opportunity to meet Summer at a Comic Con in Columbus, Ohio in September 2013.
The first thing I noticed about Summer was how beautiful she really is, along with her dazzling smile. This may not impress some readers, who are probably going “duh-we’ve seen photos of Summer-of course she is beautiful.” However I have seen some photos of celebrities without all of their makeup on and they often look rather ordinary. I expected Summer to be expertly made up but I was also looking, as subtle as possible, to see if it was a case of “she really isn’t that pretty.” I can attest that up close she is gorgeous, prettier than in many of her photos. My first words to her were “Your photos do not do you justice.” I meant it and she thanked me.
Her smile is truly dazzling, in part because it is a breath taking, almost blinding white, and in part because it seems sincere and is flashed often.
When we finally met I told Summer that as much I loved Firefly my favorite role of hers was that of Cameron on TSCC. I then asked her what her personal favorite was. She looked down in that adorable way she has and softly said, as if it was our secret, that, yes, Cameron was her favorite role. She then added comments about how grateful we was to all of her mentors and for the other roles she had played.
Later that day I had my photo taken with Summer and Ron Glass of Firefly along with a photo just with Summer. During the photo sessions there is not any opportunity to talk with the celebrities-just a quick pose and smile and you are on your way. However , when the second photo was done I said a quiet “thank you”. In response, Summer, ever polite, gave me a soft “you’re welcome.”
Summer was wearing a blue denim outfit with cowboy boots. In TSCC she intentionally sometimes used a “horsey” kind of walk to depict the awkwardness of a terminator infiltrator. In real life Summer does not walk-she seems to glide with an inherent grace in her movements.
Summer herself talked about how important it was to her to have an understanding of the physical part of her character. She added that her favorite Firefly scene was the opening scene of “Objects in Space,’ the one in which she appeared to be walking barefoot in leaves. She added something to the effect that at the panel she felt “safe” among fans.
I was very impressed by Summer. She obviously is talented, but she also seems to be the kind of person that makes it easy to root for her to have success."
A huge thank you to Randy for sharing his heartwarming impressions with us. It means a lot for fans who don't have the opportunity to meet Summer in person, whether they are on a budget or lack of time or live in another country.
