Today I got to meet one of my idols, the fabulous Chris Colfer! I asked him if he had any advice for a Screenwriting major, and he said, “Don’t be intimidated by other screenwriters! If you’ve got a story to tell, tell it.” I can’t wait to read A Grimm Warning, Chris! And thanks for the advice-I won’t forget it!

http://queennaomiful.tumblr.com/post/92114413508/today-i-attended-the-land-of-stories-a-grimm

Today I attended the Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning Chris Colfer book signing at Powell’s books in Beaverton Oregon. I went with all-the-pretty-girlies and one of our common friends. We got there about an hour and a half early, but the event staff were kind enough to have tickets on hold for us since my friend had just had back surgery and couldn’t come in the morning because of her medication. Seriously, HUGE shout out to Powell’s for doing this for us. 
What we didn’t know was that since we had special tickets we would be going in the first group! I was literally the SECOND person to go through the line. I was totally surprised because I was expecting to have to wait (I waited over an hour at the TLOS2 tour). We watched Chris enter the signing area and then basically got right in line. They wouldn’t allow any pictures to be taken while waiting, but I was too nervous to think about that anyways.
I got two copies of the first and third books since I already have two copies of second.
Our conversation went basically like this (keep in mind I was shaking and nervous. I don’t fully remember exactly what happened).
Chris: Hi! Whats your name?
Me: Naomi.
Chris: Hi, Naomi (side note, he pronounced my name incorrectly lol)
Me: (said something, but can’t remember)
Chris: I like your tiger shirt, oh wait! Is that a lion?
Me:Yeah. It’s a lion! I’m like, umm, really excited because I have two from the last book signing and I’m gunna send one of my sets t
my friend for her birthday. 
Chris: Oh, that really cool!
Me: Did you get a chance to go to the other Powell’s?
Chris: No. I heard its huge though. One of the biggest book stores in the world?
Me: Yeah, you should really go if you get the chance! It’s awesome.
Chris: (He smiled and said something, but I had to walked away.)
Then the next person came up so I had to leave, but I got some pictures from what Powell’s “Photo Pit.” Over all it was such an amazing experience. Chris was so sweet and kind to everyone who came through. Honestly, one of the best celebrity experiences I’ve ever had.




all-the-pretty-girlies with Chis Colfer!!^^^^^

I met Chris today in Beaverton (when he walked through the store I screamed which I didn’t expect to do) I gave him a couple presents one of which was a box of photos of “frenemies”, dogs and cats cuddling that I told him reminded me of Brian and Cooper and he said they’d have to look at it together. I also gave him my friend Mary’s drawing of Alex and Conner and he said it was incredible. He also said he liked my owl shirt and called me honey when I left. As is always said he is even more beautiful in person and his eyes are amazingly bright and he was so personable and sweet to everyone.

So I just met Chris Colfer!!



These are the collars I gave him for Cooper and Brian, the fabric is the same as the bowties I made for Brian that I gave him in Seattle last year. Chris was such a sweetheart and said he loved them and he would dress Brian and Cooper up and take a family picture Smile Oh and he has such a cute laugh, what a great day!

So, TLOS signing! It went fast. So, so fast!
My 8 year old daughter and I were lucky enough to be in the first group taken back for the signing. I’d say there was a crowd of about 75 hanging around. It certainly wasn’t 800 like other stops, but the store also wasn’t that big so it was a good thing! Chris walked in with Alla and his body guard and the crowd started abuzz. His hair was super swooped up today and he was casual in a black shirt. To tell you the truth my brain is practically blank about the experience!
So, they were really trying to move people through and I’m not sure if I’d recommend trying to be in the first group or not because Chris seemed a little bit distracted. He walked in, they set him up and it was go, go, go! He was super sweet with my daughter. He asked her name and how she was. I told him she had a question for him as a writer and she asked him how much of the story was from when he was little and how much he added to the story. He told her that the first book was completely the story he made up when he was young, but the other two books were stories he came up with after writing the first book.
I gave him a personal note written on a card that says “Readers Make History” and told him it was for him and that I work for a literacy organization so thanks for being a writer. I think they won’t just throw it out, but maybe we weren’t supposed to give him anything. I don’t know. Oh well, it was fine. My adorable daughter who loves his books got a fabulous experience and I got to see him up close!
He is smaller than I expected. Like thinner. My daughter said he looks and sounds exactly like he does in videos! And he does! His voice is pretty amazing in person. She noticed his lisp which she also noticed when listening to the recorded books. She has one too that she is working on so it made her feel less alone.
All in all it was a great experience but so, so fast. I totally get why people would pay extra for a personal meet and greet. Because all I want now is more time to look at him and talk with him.

Chris Colfer Signing Story

I met Chris today at the Portland book signing!!!! It was kind of amazing. I had met him last summer so this time our conversation was a little more coherent since I had some use of my brain still.
He asked me how I was and I said “good” and asked him, he said “good.” I had brought a letter with me to give him since last time I got so star struck I didn’t say anything I wanted to. This time I explained what happened last time so that is why I wrote everything down. I told him I adored him - understatement. He thanked me for the letter and said he would be sure to read it. I took my books (both TLOS 1 and 3) and as I was walking away he said he hoped I would like the books. My reply, “I already do”.
All in all, kind of amazing. I can’t look at him with my own eyes for too long without tearing up. I have tons of pics I will post tomorrow!

More pics from the Beaverton signing on 07/17/14. I just got back to Seattle so I was able to take these off of my camera.
The last pic is a little gift I brought for him from Seattle. Nothing special compared to what other fans gave him, but he was incredibly sweet and thanked me several times for it. And Alla let out a big “Awww!”

Here was my conversation with Chris
First off Alla chewed out the body guard in whispers to let my mom take pictures out of the photo box then…
Me: Hi
Chris: Hi, what’s your name?
Me: AdriAnn
Chris:Hi AdriAnn. How are you?
Me: Good
As Chris signs my book Alla notices he Brian side of the pillow and says.
look it’s Brian 
Chris: yeah,
so I hand it to him the pillow.
Chris: is this for me?
I nod.
He makes a big fuss over it using a flurry of ohhs and O.M.G’s. noticing he only noticed the Brian side I grab it from him and turn it to the Cooper side and give it back causing an even bigger fuss. He hugs it to his chest tightly.
Chris: Thank you I love it.
After handing the pillow and poem to Alla he offers to shake my hand, I wasn’t going to say no, so I gave him my less useful hand.

My wonderful friend Maya (who doesn’t have a tumblr) just met Chris at The Grove. She asked him if he got to do any scenes with Betty White on Hot in Cleveland and he said he had two. And then he just kept talking about her. What a cutie.
Thanks to Maya for letting me share this!
