Happy Supernatural Day!  
So, is everyone looking as forward to the new episode as much as I am? From the clips/pics I've seen, it looks like it will be a pretty good one. I hope everyone enjoys it and we get more positive reviews than last week! :D

Okay, in eight days I will be flying to Chicago to see Jared & Jensen and I cannot believe this con is so close! O.o I am still super scared about going and keep praying that I will be able to get through it without being completely overwhelmed. To all of you who have gone to a Creation Supernatural con before, I have some questions I'd love the answers to:

  1. What do you bring to have signed? I am only getting one autograph from Jared and I'm just not sure what to have him sign. I have a Sammy pic I bought from the Creation site a while back, but I wondered what other things people have brought.

  2. Besides the print-outs of the admission, photo ops & autograph tickets, is there anything else that is essential to bring? Do I need to have the confirmation e-mails as well?

  3. I'm not allowed to register until Sunday morning because that's the only day I bought admission for. I am terribly nervous about registering and am worried it will take so long that they may start other events before I get done! Can someone explain how registration works and if it is a long process? How early do you think I should get there?

  4. Does Creation supply water or do you have to bring your own?

  5. Are you allowed to bring an iPod (things like that) into the con area?

  6. Is there anything else I should know or do?
I apologize for my obsessive questions. It would just help me feel a lot better if I had a better idea of what to do in certain situations etc. *bites nails*

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. ^^

I'm very excited for the ep too. :)

I had Jared signing for me a drawing of him and Jensen and then the SPN DVDs. Oh, and some SPN promo pics. (I have got a lot of Jared autos. :P)

you can definitely bring IPods in there and Creations suplies water but it's cheaper if you have your own.

don't stress too much. just have fun! :D

I guess I will just bring a Sammy pic I bought from the Creation webite. You're lucky to have so many Jared autographs.

That's a relief. I think if I can listen to some music during down times it will help me get through it easier.

I will try my best!

Happy SPN day sweetie. I"m sure you'll have the most amazing time at the convention.

Thanks, I hope you're right as I'm super anxious about it!

1. Whatever you like, within reason ;). The DVDs, books, calandars, posters... whatever. I usually get pictures signed. They sell merch so if you don't want that pic of Jared signed you can always see what they've got available. They have a few different pics to choose from - have trouble picking! LOL.
2. You just need the tickets. No need for confirmation emails :)
3. I'm thinking the majority of people would already be registered, but it can be fairly long (waited two hours at VanCon to get registered/extra photo ops, urgh. And that was for gold!). Get there as early as you can. The actual process is pretty quick - they just scan your ticket, and get you sorted with your wristband or whatever. They should start it before photo ops really get into full swing. You won't miss out!
4. They sometimes have a little table with food and drinks, but best to bring your own. Usually there's a Starbucks or something nearby at the hotel you can nip into and buy water or coffee.
5. Sure. Haven't seen anything like that been taken off anyone :\
6. Have fun! And wear comfortable shoes. There's a lot of bustling about in the morning with all the photo ops.

Don't apologise *squishes you* Always good to know what you're in for.

Thanks for all of your help and advice, I really appreciate it!

I'm quite nervous about the registration process. I am so afraid that I won't get done before they start the photo ops, and that is pretty much the main reason I'm going and putting myself through all of this stress! I have the Preferred Sunday tickets, so I don't know how long those would take. *bites nails*

*squishes back*

Oh that is so great that you're going to see them!! I'm so happy for you! Unfortunately, I don't know anything about SPN cons, so I can't offer any advice, other than, have fun!! :D *hugs*

P.S. Don't sweat the questions - I know if it was me going, I'd be doing the exact same thing LOL

Yeah, I just wish I could get excited about it instead of being scared to death. :( I will do my best to have a good time. *hugs back*

Awww, don't be scared sweetheart ♥~
I'm sure you'll do just great :D

Thanks for your encouraging words! ♥

I'm so jealous you get to see Jensen and Jared *pouts* but I promise myself that someday I'll go to a con :)

As you've seen I know nothing of cons and how they work, sorry. But don't worry to much, I'd be doing hundreds of questions and getting really nervous and stuff.

Aww, hon, I hope you will get the chance to see them too! *hugs*

Hey Kristin! I know you already got some answers but I thought I'd give my 2 cents too :)

1. You can bring whatever you want - the photo you have of him, any of the DVD covers, a poster, trading cards, anything like that. The first con I went to, I bought a Sam photo at the dealer tables and had Jared sign it.
2. Don't need the confirmation email, just the tickets. :)
3. As someone else said, the lines can be long for registration, so try to get down there early. Once they post the schedule, you'll have a better idea of how early you should probably be down there. And I can give you some tips on that, too. Registration is a fairly quick process - they just scan your ticket and give you the wristband that you need.
4. I've noticed they'll have these little tables at the edge of the room with cups and a water cooler type thing, but it's best to be prepared and bring some of your own anyway. It can get pretty hot walking around (although the main theater itself can be kind of cool sometimes).
5. Yeah, you should be able to bring an iPod. The only things I've seen them check for are video cameras, which aren't allowed.
6. Last thing you should know? We're going to have an AWESOME time! Seriously, Jared is such a nice guy, and Jensen is pretty amazing too. The photo ops are going to be just great. I'm so looking forward to seeing you there! :) *hugs*

Thanks so much for your help, Jess! I'll probably just bring a Sammy pic I got from the Creation website a while ago. I am SO nervous about this registration thing. What if we don't finish before they start the photo ops? If I do nothing else, that is the one thing I want to accomplish out of this experience (and meeting you, of course). I wish we could just register Saturday when we get there.

I have been so anxious all day today, and crying off and on from the sheer fear of everything that's coming. I hate myself for feeling this way because I really want to enjoy it and have a good time. *hugs back*

My pleasure, hon. :) That sounds like a plan. I really don't see how they could hold everyone up so long that they'd miss the photo ops. They should be posting the schedule in the next day or so, and I think after you see that you'll have a better idea of when you should line up and what's to be expected. And I'll help you out with that. It would be so much easier if they let you register Saturday, but of course Creation has to make that hard. :(

Awww, hon... *BIG HUGS* It's natural to feel overwhelmed and scared with it being your first time doing something as big as this. I've been anxious last night and a little today in general thanks to my hormones, so I can relate. I hardly slept at all last night so I feel like a zombie, lol. But don't worry, we will enjoy this. I know it. :) *more hugs*
