So here’s the thing, I’m a Steven Universe fan. I know it’s a kids cartoon and I never had any intention of actually watching it, but I sleep with the TV on and I watch Adult Swim even though there’s some crazy stuff on there, but it’s mostly for Family Guy, Rick and Morty, Bob’s Burgers, and etc. You get my point. My alarm usually goes off every morning at 5:30 for me to wake up and I usually don’t. So one morning, it’s after 5:30 and this song comes on. This song I’ve never heard before and it’s the Steven Universe song. I’m instantly intrigued and I end up watching an episode. Needless to say I fell in love with the show and even though I didn’t plan on meeting any of the cast at MegaCon this year, the Steven Universe fangirl inside of me said that I just had to.
My very first autograph session of MegaCon 2018 was with DeeDee Magno who plays Pearl on Steven Universe. Even though I was a VIP, I actually waited in line for her because there were a bunch of kids and I didn’t want to cut in front of them. I thought this was the nice thing to do until a bunch of other VIP’s jumped the line, which is their right. I felt like I did the right thing though. Anyway, I wanted to meet DeeDe first because I have to say that Pearl is my favorite Steven Universe character. Probably because I’m most like her.
When I finally got up to meet DeeDee she was extremely nice and I told her how Pearl was my favorite character in the whole show, she thanked me and was very gracious throughout the whole autograph session. I told her a little about the print that I had bought at the show to get signed and we chatted about that for a little before it was over and time for a quick selfie. Overall for the first autograph session of the show I would say that it definitely set the pace for the rest of the show and I really enjoyed meeting DeeDee and getting her autograph. I have to say that the print I picked up at the show was pretty awesome because the way it was spread out gave each star enough space to sign and I was really happy with the end result of my Steven Universe collection of autographs. This was the first time that I was able to get a whole cast of a show to sign my print at once.
