Insurgence 6...

Well I had a absolutely wonderful weekend Blogland I hope you guys did too! 

So insurgence 6 happened this weekend. What is Insurgence 6 I hear you cry? Well my lovely blogland it was mine and Meg's Vampire Diairies weekend. Yes! We went again LOL For those of you who are long time readers you will know that this was mine and Meg's 4th convention, we both love it SO much and this year we even had another member along for the ride, Natalie, James's sister so Megan's soon to be sister-in-law. 

There are going to be a few of you reading this thinking that I'm sad for going while there will be others who will have wanted to go and then the lovely other few who actually went too. This year we had the pleasure of meeting Paul Wesley (aka Stefan Salvatore), Steven R McQueen (aka Jeremy Gilbert), Zach Roerig (aka Matt Donovan), Michael Malarkey (aka Enzo), Todd Stashwick (aka Father Kieranoff of The Originals), Rick Cosnett (aka Dr Wes), Robert Pralgo (aka Mayor Lockwood from season 1 of TVD) and last but definitely not least Leah Pipes (aka Cami off of The originals). Me and Meg have both met Zach, Steven and Paul before but it was so great to see them again and be reminded of why we love them so much. I could try to explain to you what it is that we enjoy so much when we go to this thing but it would not do it justice. I think for anyone meeting people from a show that they love it would be amazing so if you can do something like it, you should! We've been so lucky with the people we meet they always surpass our expectations with how lovely they are and just the time they have for you, no-one we have met has ever been less than lovely. I mean don't get me wrong it can be quite a stressful weekend sometimes because you're worried you won't get your autographs or your photos but it's all a part of the experience that makes it amazing. After it you suffer from the con Lurgy as most call it and the con blues but I think that has a lot to do with the adrenaline and the endorphins that have been pumping round your body all weekend that suddenly just aren't anymore. 

So this weekend I got to get pictures with Steven, Zach, Paul, Leah and Michael, We opted for less Photos this year and wanted to see more of the talks and do some coffee lounges too because last year was all about the photos so this year we wanted to change it up a bit. We did coffee lounges with Leah who is just the loveliest person I really was so surprised by how lovely she was because her character on the The originals has never been one I've paid too much attention too. We did one with Steven who is still as lovely as ever, he made Megan do her Lip trick that she tried to teach him at i4 it was hilarious. We did another with Zach who is also still so lovely and he seems to have grown up since the last time we met as he now has a little girl and is a single father and he was just gushing about her so much in the coffee lounge, it was so cute. We also did a Meet and greet which I really enjoyed because I got to have a argument with Steven about hockey and how he should be watching other sports like Wimbledon lol. 

For me and Meg it's also a chance to catch up with old friends who have been going to these things with us since Insurgence 3 but also go to a lot more conventions too. Nowadays it's like a massive reunion. This year was a bit harder for me than usual it's kind of a way I can measure how much worse I've gotten health wise, I spent a lot more time in a wheelchair and the few times I did try and just walk to somewhere it killed me because it's quite a large hotel. I also spent a lot of time on my oxygen because the humidity and heat was getting to me a bit but the whole experience totally outweighs any health issues I have at the weekend and I will still always do it because they are so accommodating to people with disability issues and Zach even carried my oxygen for me, bless him! We did have a minor issue with my line because it was leaking but luckily it was just from the bubble catcher so all I had to do was change it so no paramedics were needed this year :D. 

Here's a few photos from the weekend and seriously guys if you ever get the chance to go to something like this for a show that you like I say jump in head first you won't regret it :)
