I have to say that even though there were a bunch of people that I wanted to see at MegaCon, Felicia Day was at the top of my list. Because of schedule stuff I knew that Saturday was going to be a super busy day and I have to admit I was super nervous that I wouldn’t be able to see who I had wanted to see on Saturday. Like I said though, Felicia Day was at the top of my list for Saturday autographs. I first seen Felicia Day in Dragon Age: Redemption before she was in Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin. After that I watched The Guild which I thought was awesome because it was different than anything I had seen before. Being a gamer I could completely relate to it and since then I’ve re-watched the series multiple times. I even recently read and reviewed her book which you can read here, spoiler alert, I also thought it was pretty damn awesome.
Since it was Saturday I had to use my VIP power. The floor was literally packed with people and each and every line had lines that doubled and tripled. Everything was kind of a mess and unorganized, but I was finally able to find my VIP escort to take me to Felicia Day. She was super nice when I met her and even gave me a high five for wearing a Guild T-Shirt. When I got that high five I knew the rest of the day was going to go my way. I mean how could it not? I just got a high five from Felicia Day! The session went great as I told her what a fan I was of hers and she even personalized my autograph. We even joked a little about her height because I didn’t expect her to be that tall and I thought we would be the same height for our upcoming photo-op. Before I left she said that for the photo-op to remind her to slouch down so that we looked like we were the same height. I laughed it off and told her that she didn’t have to do that. Being able to see Felicia Day first that day set the bar really high for Saturday and my autograph list was still pretty long.
BONUS! When I got into the photo booth with Felicia Day she totally remembered who I was, even though she had probably seen a bunch of people after our meeting because there was probably a full hour or more before the actual photo-op. My favorite part though? She totally bent down a little to try to match my height because she remembered what we had talked about. This had to be one of the best moments and best professional photo-op’s that I had at the convention and I have to say it just made me feel really awesome.
