My Dad took Willow (my older sister), our good friend Ammelia, and myself to the Emerald City Comic Convention last March (2015) for one day, Friday.
We got a few things signed (and photos taken with all) by different people (Alex Kingston, Hayley Atwell, and Chloe Bennett), but that's for another post.
We were one of the last people to make it into the line for Hayley Atwell's (Agent Peggy Carter from Marvel) signature. But the thing was, we had to get pictures with Alex Kingston, and get there fast, it was going to be done soon, which was rather unnerving. But finally, the stragglers of the group got their signatures and it was my turn.
She said it was fantastic, and that I was very talented. I didn't talk much, we didn't have much time. But her accent was beautiful :) She was a nice person, from the brief moments we got to talk to her. Ammelia pointed out that she seemed tired. I didn't notice, but she probably was. All that smiling... ugh, it'd make anyone's face hurt.
After that, we raced to Alex Kingston's photo booth. We got them, by the way :) All's good, we never missed anybody in our trip.
I carefully laid out the picture so that, when she signed, her name would be above "as Agent Carter", so it would end up being "Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter". That was kind of cool. I had to look up fonts from Agent Carter quotes to get the lettering right.
It's kind of funny, I wasn't done with this when we were on our way to the Con. I was finishing the words while we were stuck in the painfully slow traffic. I didn't get to line the words with pen until we got back home. It was kind of a rush project :)
I wasn't very happy with the paper my art teacher brought at first, because of it's texture. It had little indents (you can see 'em above, in her blue jacket), and it looked funny at first. But soon enough, it came out looking kind of comic-book-like, so it was fine.
The colors really popped, I'm very happy with how the red and blue came out. My teacher was so helpful, she helped me mix the colored pencils to make good blues and reds.
Anyway, that was an adventure to remember! I'm going to have this framed someday, hopefully. I hope you enjoy this little tale, and the art too, even if you're not in the fandom :)
