Probably would've been more excited about this booth if my parents let me watch anything but PBS when I was little.

Behold the Supernatural shrine -- I got lucky and just happened to be outside the Warner Bros. booth when the cast came out.

I think this was the moment when I died a little. Jensen Ackles (center, waving), who plays Dean on Supernatural, came out to sign autographs with his fellow stars Jared Padalecki (left), Mark Sheppard (right) and Misha Collins (left, on TV)

I actually had to delete almost all the photos of the Supernatural cast -- they were blurry from my hands shaking so badly.

He's real?!?! Sam, who in real life is known as Jared Padalecki, looked right at me.

Again with the mindblowing art.

OK, I take it all back. This guy wins every costume award there is. Even the ones that don't exist.

Harry Potter costumes. They're cosplayers after my own heart.

Clara P.
Not the biggest sports person, if you couldn't tell by my immense nerd knowledge. But, this anime Kobe was supercool.

And that's all, folks!
