Gavid Giuntoli signed photo
Indeed, gentle reader, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting both David Giuntoli of Grimm fame and Christopher Judge, Oregon Duck #2 and T’lac from Stargate at the Rose City Comic Con this weekend.
David Giuntoli still has that air about him of newness to his fame. While every star I’ve met at a con has truly appreciated their fans, David still seems to be surprised that so many people are interested in him, like his show and think highly of him and his work (of course that is just my impression). He also has a charisma and spark of life about him that cannot be translated in media.
Christopher Judge was nothing less than absolutely gracious. He very kindly greeted everyone, even those who didn’t pay for an autograph. He had some Oregon Ducks paraphernalia with him also, playing to the home crowd very well. He really is a gentle, gracious and kind person. I am so very pleased that of all the choices I could have made to get autographs from that I chose his. I also got his autograph for my sister as part of her Christmas gift this year since she couldn’t make it to the RCCC and Christopher kindly signed the photo to her and wished her Merry Christmas.
It is always, always nice when people you like on television, who play characters you like, turn out to be just wonderful human beings. Granted this is just a snapshot of who they are. I only got to speak to each one for a few brief minutes but consider that it was a high stress situation. There were thousands of fans there and many people wanted to speak to them.
As I mentioned yesterday, Star Wars was well represented. I’m including some of the photos I took so you can enjoy the amazing cosplay.

And some awesome X-Men cosplayers. I’ve always been a fan of Gambit, espeically before he went back to being evil. There were some spectacular Storm costumes and we were delighted to see a Frozone cosplayer from The Incredibles. Alas I did not get a picture of Frozone but I did get this great picture of some X-Men cosplayers.
Sadly, due to money constraints, I was not able to speak to Avery Brooks. Tomorrow I will go over the Kaiju panel discussion so do come back to read all about that. It was delightful. K.
