Autographing at NYCC 2014
The first time I've seen Urban was on Xena: Warrior Princess or at least I hope I did. I remember seeing an actor that looked like Urban playing as Cupid in an episode of Xena, so when it was my turn to get my signature, I asked him if he played that character and his response was “aaaaaaahhhh yessss.” It was one of “I had to think about it before I can answer you” moments. I continued with our small talk. I told him he was “very good looking as cupid” and “I'm sorry that Almost Human got cancelled.” He thanked me for the compliment and said that he too was sorry about the cancellation because he had fun on the show. Unfortunately, there was no photography allowed so the picture above is all I have for you.
The first group of people to meet Lawless were those who bought a photograph ticket. Then if they had a ticket for the autograph, they got back in line and were the first to get an autograph by her. When it was my turn to get her autograph, I mentioned to Lawless that my father brought me this when I was little and now I can get her to sign it. She unrolled the poster and said “Oh…My…God!” She made it out to me and then offered to give me a hug for my dad! Obviously, I took the hug and said “Oh my god! Thank you!” She’s too awesome.
When it was my turn to get an autograph, we went up to the store's 2nd floor and I handed in my ticket. I saw an old friend, had a small conversation and it was my turn to get my book signed. When I reached the table where the artist was, the woman sitting with him (I am pretty sure it was his translator), said “I like your jacket.” I was surprised she took notice, thanked her for the compliment and told her I made the whole attire myself (I was in Scarlet Witch age of Ultron cosplay). She turned to the artist and spoke to him in Japanese about my attire. He nodded at me and smiled. Yeah that made my day. Plus, I got the limited edition signing board! Winning!
