‘Supernatural’ Convention by Creation is a Service to Hunters Everywhere

GameStop, Inc.

This past weekend I attended Creation’s Supernatural Convention in Pasadena, CA. Let me begin by saying I am a HUGE Supernatural Fan … I couldn’t have been more giddy than to see my beloved Crowley & Castiel on stage bantering and answering fan questions … But this convention was a little different than most I’ve been to. Press was only given access to the theatre. The dealer’s room was small, but they still had people selling 8x10s, t-shirts, jewelry and some Supernatural-inspired art. There wasn’t one general room where everyone was, but rather a few different ones. Rooms were set up for photo ops, autographs and cast meet & greets, for those who purchased tickets. There was a separate theatre where a stage was set up for cast members to have their panels, which worked more like a Q&A with fans who were allowed to walk up to microphones on either side of the stage and ask questions. There were long periods of time where nothing was going on in the theatre and people would sit around and wait… unless they had purchased photo ops, meet & greets or autograph signings with the cast.

On Saturday the panels in the theatre were hosted by The Trickster himself, Richard Speight, Jr. and Rob Benedict along with his band Louden Swain. The two joked back and forth while completely winning over the fans – not a hard task! Kathryn Newton (Claire Novak) was called onstage and after some banter with the boys, they left her onstage where she answered audience questions and told stories of her time on set. She also had gifts of tiny pony or cat socks to give out to fans who asked questions. She was followed by Osric Chau (Kevin Tran) and Ruth Connell (Rowena) … who had brought hotel bath supplies to give out as gifts to the fans who asked questions. The cast genuinely seemed to like each other, which made their onstage banter that much more fun to watch.

IMG_3461When I first arrived at The Convention, it was like walking through a sea of Castiel’s … Saturday was the Costume Contest. There were so many Castiel’s that contestants had to form a separate line if dressed as our favorite fallen angel. The winner of the Castiel Costume Contest was a tie between the littlest Castiel (the cutest 1-year-old boy) and a Castiel as “Kevin” who worked at a Convenience Mart. There were plenty of Deans, Sheriff’s and Charlies as well. One of my favorite costumes was that of a young blue-haired girl who was dressed as Dean’s 1967 Chevrolet Impala, complete with license plate on her butt! It was hilarious!!! She was robbed out of winning!

Then, after a long wait period, Richard & Rob come out again and introduced Matt Cohen (Young John Winchester) to the stage. The three of them joked around while answering fan questions.

After another intermission in the theatre where the stage area was reset for a Supernatural Auction, Mark Sheppard came out and wowed fans all while walking through the theatre, kissing babies and making fun of fans and their questions … this was all done in fun and fans were more-than-happy to be on the receiving end of his banter. He was Mayor of the Theatre! It wasn’t long though before Richard, Rob and Louden Swain re-entered the stage and it was time for Mark to go … but before he did, he thanked the fans, calling them “family” rather than “fanatics” because he didn’t like that word. I do believe I saw some girls cry!

Misha Collins was last to be called onto to the stage. He wowed the audience with his funny stories and accents. Someone even found one of his first headshots and brought it onstage … He looks exactly the same!!! He even showed off one of his skills: Tibetan Throat Singing … Fans loved joking with him, one of them even ending their conversation with “Nice to Misha!” He seemed to like that.

All in all, the cast made the waiting totally worth it. I really liked watching the cast interact with fans and each other … Louden Swain playing songs between cast Q&As was fun … they’re like honorary cast members (well, Rob was a cast member … but you get what I mean).
