SLASH - Through The Mail (TTM) Autograph

Signed 8x10 Photo
Sent: 05/13/2015
Rec'd: 05/23/2016
(370 Day Return)

     An autograph that I have gave up hope on, but finally came back was Slash. I sent an 8x10 photo to him last year as he is usually good about only signing 1 through the mail. Well he kept my photo and sent his own and personalized and inscribed it. He wrote R & F'n' R which means, well you know what it means. I am happy to get this return back, but wish he would of signed my photo, but no big deal, it is a success from one bad ass guitarist. I didn't even realize that it was gone that long, but he was on tour and is going to be on tour with Guns n' Roses so to even get this back is awesome.

PHYLICIA RASHAD - Through The Mail (TTM) Autograph

Phylicia Rashad
Signed (2) 8x10 photos

     Once I seen that Phylicia Rashad was on Broadway in a play, I had to take the chance and send off to her. She was in the play 'Head of Passes' which ended on the 24th of April. Since the play was over I kind of gave up on getting anything back from her. Well to my surprise she must have taken her fan mail home and signed it there. I was happy when I opened it up because usually more times then not when a play is over the actor or actress will not take the fan mail with them. So I was pleasantly surprised. I wish I would have sent a photo from the movie Creed that she was in, but I really liked the 2 photos I sent. I loved her on the Cosby show back in the day when I was growing up so this success today is a win in my book.

Rose McGowan, Matthew Lillard & Skeet Ulrich
Signed 10x15 Scream movie poster photo already signed by Neve Campbell & David Arquette

     I couldn't pass up on meeting Rose, Matthew & Skeet at Texas Frightmare since I already started my cast signed photo. I knew it wasn't going to be cheap either, but I had to suck it up and pay for it. All 3 were $50 each and I can justify paying that for Rose but not the other 2, but it is what it is and I did it.
     I met Matthew Lillard first and he couldn't of been any nicer. He was joking with me from the start and it was funny. He was really interacting with his fans and that can be rare at a convention. I handed him my photo and he signed it. I am not to happy about his signature which is just his initials, but that is how he signs so I have no choice but to like it. After he signed my photo we took a picture then it was off to the table next to him.

     I met Skeet Ulrich after Lillard and like Matthew, Skeet was down to earth. I shook his hand and thanked him, but he thanked me for being there. He also signed my photo and took a picture afterwards. Though it was quick, it was nice meeting Skeet finally.

     Lastly, the next day (Saturday) the only other person I needed was Rose McGowan. She was not at the show on Friday. I knew her line was going to be long so I bought my autograph ticket on Friday. Well, I was right her line was long. I got in line around 11:15 and she was to arrive at noon and she did. About less then 3 hours later, I finally was in front of Rose. I shook her hand and thanked her for being there and she smiled. She took my Scream photo and signed it with a beautiful signature. I snapped a photo of her signing it as there were no photos with her at the table. After that I asked her for a hug and she said of course. She got up and gave me a hug and thanked me again and I was on my way with a smile on my face. Though Rose has a shaved head, she is still an amazing and beautiful woman. My day was complete and I left to go home as my back was killing me. Another great year at Texas Frightmare and am looking forward to next year already. 

SARAH WAYNE CALLIES - Texas Frightmare 2016

Sarah Wayne Callies
Signed Walking Dead Season 2 BluRay Limited Edition Zombie Head

     I was hoping that 3rd time was the charm for Sarah Wayne Callies to come to Texas Frightmare. The last 2 times she was supposed to be here she cancelled. She promised everyone on Facebook that she will be at Texas Frightmare this year and she didn't disappoint.

     I have a cast signed Season 2 Walking Dead BluRay Limited Edition zombie head that I needed to add her to and so I was really excited to finally meet her. She came in Friday for the show, but was about 3 hours late due to a late flight. I went to her table last thing on Friday before the show closed for the night and maybe there were 5 people ahead of me. I finally got in front of her and shook her hand and thanked her for being there and she thanked me and took my zombie head. I told her there isn't much room and she can sign if she finds a spot and she goes "Oh, I'll sign right here under Shane". I laughed and she continued to sign in the perfect spot. She added her character name "Lori" and added a heart. I thanked her again and had a nice little conversation about the zombie head and I got a photo with her and I was on my way. She was adorable and sweet as can be. She really does appreciate her fans. I was glad I had the opportunity to meet her finally. It was well worth the wait. Now, to search out Lennie James next for my zombie head.

KANE HODDER - Texas Frightmare 2016

Kane Hodder
Signed Jason Mask

     Kane was someone at Texas Frightmare I originally didn't plan on getting, but I have a multi-signed Jason mask as you can see from the picture and I already had Kane on it. However, I gave it to my buddy to get signed at a private signing he was doing with Kane. When I got the mask back it was signed, but the signature was really light and streaky. The sharpie he used must of been bad cause it just wasn't as black and bold as the others. I tried to remove the signature and it was doing more harm then good so I said the heck with it I will just meet him at the show. I never met him before so I really didn't mind at all. I was actually looking forward to it.

     When I finally got to his table after about 30 minutes in line, Kane looked in rough shape. He was sitting down the entire time even for photos. He just looked tired and hurt. Maybe he was having back issues or something, but I felt bad for him. Anyways, I gave him my mask and explained the situation. I told him to sign over his last signature with a good black marker and he did just that. Plus he inscribed 7,8,9,X which wasn't on there before. He was Jason in Parts 7-10. I shook his hand and thanked him. He asked me if I had Richard Brooker on the mask and I said no, I started the mask after he passed away. He said it was nice meeting me and then I left. I enjoyed meeting Kane even though he was in rough shape. I didn't even bother to ask for a picture and I am fine with that. I did see him later walking around and I am sure his back was bad cause he was kind of slouched over, but who knows. I hope he gets better and he comes back cause I will get a photo next time.
