FTW? I Took a Picture of Tricia Helfer's Ass!  
Here be said picture...




After the panel,  inara223ponderous77, and I were wandering around and randomly stumbled upon Tricia and her posse coming out of the press room. Camera wasn't exactly at the ready, but close enough. I followed for a bit, until the posse gave me dirty looks. But then they stopped for a sec and I was able to snap this more blurry pic of the whole Tricia Helfer crew...



She is the most GORGEOUS-THIN-FASHIONABLE-MODEL-SUPER-ALIEN-CREATURE ever!!!

Now the panel with Tricia and James happened at 11:00 AM. When me and my posse (love ya guys!) arrived at the convention center, the line of people waiting to get in literally wrapped around five blocks or some such! It was freezing and looked absolutely hopeless to get in on time. But we made it! We made it like a minute before the thing actually started! So my $ was not wasted at all. (We missed the special 10 Year Anniversary Buffy panel with Xander, etc. And apparently they had cake. But we made it to Baltar & Six, so who gives a frak?!) 

Kevin Smith was the moderator and he was hilarious! Being a fanboy of the show really gave him props. He was totally aware of plot and everything. It was awesome. 

James Callis got a haircut and a shave! His hair was shorter than the mini-series, so he really looked small and adorable. Hee! (Kinda reminded me of the way he looked in Helen of Troy!) Tricia...Well she's always gorgeous and amazing. I mean my pictures of her backside really prove it. :) Yeah, they were cute. And in the program it said: James Callis (President of Gaius Baltar). Heh.

But I must say that mainly the questions posed were completely dumb. I went up there to give Tricia a shout out for doing Canada's Next Top Model and ask James about the face wig but the question line got cut off. Ah well. Anyway, the panel was mainly the general stuff. Tricia talks about playing the different Sixes, James talks about how hard it is to play head!Baltar. Etc, etc. Then Kevin Smith joked about how James had the threesome with Six and Xena: Warrior Princess and that now all he needed to do was add Scully circa '99 to complete the trifecta (and it's so true that '99 is Scully at her hottest!).

Then someone asked James about the aesthetic of the show, if his opinion changed after doing the mini (because apparently he didn't really get why they wanted him for BSG when it was just a script in front of him). He responded by saying that he was floored with "seeing spaceships in the daylight." He was talking about the scene with Roslin in her doctor's office. And being a fannish con, someone from the audience screams out, "Yay Serenity!" James didn't understand so people started screaming Serenity at him. He misunderstood the reaction, because I don't think he's aware of the VFX shout outs within Serenity and BSG. And Kevin Smith didn't help matters by going, "Don't mess with the Browncoats." So poor James went to clarify that he has not seen Serenity but he has seen Firefly...

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED... Tricia pipes in and says: "I can one up you. I dated Captain Mal." O.o *twitch*

The whole audience literally gasped. Then everyone went silent. And she spoke again. She said it was before BSG and when he was doing Firefly. 

And that, my dear friends, is where I stop rambling about this con. Because there's no frakking way I could follow up with anything more awesome than Six dating Mal. I shall go hyperventilate in peace.

C'est tout. Basta. The end. 


ETA: inara223 has now posted the rest of our blurry-yet-oh-so-amusing pictures from the con. So for some more Tricia and James action, as well as some Buffy folks action, go here and enjoy.

Tricia just got a whole lot cooler! omg! Hee

Too be fair, she was pretty awesome before. I mean she was in a made for TV movie with Ben Browder, hee! But she dated Nathan Fillion. And that is way cooler. :)

Seriously, that's just too cool. Wish I could have been there! Anything else worth mentioning about the con?

Oh, BTW, if you haven't seen it, SciFi.com still has the San Diego Comic Con BSG panel up. They have the SG-1 panel up too, but not the SGA one, which I thought was actually more entertaining...
cortexiphan juice box: Team Shweirhollywoodgrrl on February 25th, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
Mmm, to tell you the truth, the NYCC is way lamer than the SDCC. I mean, it's only its 2nd year and I wasn't even going to go until I heard James and Tricia were going to be there.

I only saw a couple Jayne hats in the crowd. Mainly there were comic book geeks geeking out about the comic books. And Kevin Smith. His panel was PACKED!

But regarding anything BSG related, they confirmed the DVD movie, which we already knew about. Then some fan wanted spoilers about the end of the season, specifically about Kara, and they wouldn't have any of it. Spoilers bad.

They have the SG-1 panel up too, but not the SGA one, which I thought was actually more entertaining...
Thanks for letting me know. I hardly go on Scifi.com because it always seems like it's going to crash (but then again, I always go right after BSG is over on Sundays and it really does crash all the time at that point). And also, I have envy of you being there! How awesome was the SGA panel? I wonder if it's on YouTube.

Oh it turned out to be a blast. Seeing Tricia that extra random time really helped. And I went to one comic book panel that turned out to be really interesting. So it was a very productive day.

Six/Mal fic all the way. They shall now be poping up all over the place. head!Six in Mal's brain perhaps?

Did you get to go to the BSG episode screening?
cortexiphan juice box: BSG - BDHshollywoodgrrl on February 25th, 2007 03:30 am (UTC)
No, I didn't get a chance to go to the screening. I tried to find out if they were showing more than one ep (b/c I had heard on LJ that it was the next 2 which would mean "Maelstrom"!), but I believe they showed exactly this Sunday night's lineup of Dresden Files and BSG. And the guy who plays Harry Dresden did a Q&A. So I wasn't really intrested in that.

SO FREAKIN' JEALOUS! I wanted to go so bad, but alas, here I am having to study for a stupid exam this weekend. I feel like they announced all the really awesome people at the last minute.

Next year, man.
cortexiphan juice box: VM - Squee!hollywoodgrrl on February 25th, 2007 04:49 am (UTC)
Omg. They totally announced the interesting people like a week beforehand. I had to go to Midtown Comics to get the ticket because by the time I found out about James and Tricia, the Saturday online passes were already sold out. But it all worked out, so yay.

I bet next year it'll be even more awesome. :)
Ponderousponderous77 on February 25th, 2007 03:29 am (UTC)
My brain still hurts from all the revelations. Really, that panel couldn't have floored me more even if they had relented to that guy and spilled the beans on Starbuck and whatever her deal is. Pity you didn't get your chance to get to the bottom of face wigs, though.
cortexiphan juice box: James Callis + evil!hathollywoodgrrl on February 25th, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
That panel was so not about Starbuck's deal. It was about face wigs and Tricia Helfers dating habits. GAH!!!

cortexiphan juice box: BSG - Smart Baltarhollywoodgrrl on February 25th, 2007 05:13 am (UTC)
Hee! Yep. They dated before she did BSG and while he was still doing Firefly. Someone needs to put Nathan Fillion on the spot at his next con. Be like, "So Tricia said THIS at the NYCC..." Heh.
god: Firefly; Mal & Jayne + Skyrunonmoonlight on February 25th, 2007 04:36 am (UTC)
LMAO - I join in on the *GASP* and silence of Tricia and Nathan, it's just so awesome *g*

Heee, I saw James talk last year, and he is the awesome is he not? Except I spent a bunch of time with my fingers in my ears cuz I *hate* spoilers and I hadn't seen the end of the 2ed season yet =P

KEVIN SMITH! HEEEEEEEEEEE.

Dude, I learned with the Adam Baldwin experience at SFX a year and a half ago, to always show up ridiculously early when it's a Q&A you have to line up for (we did not get to see him talk, because SFX are stupid and put him in a too small room and the line up was HUGE). Cuz you're usually with people, and thus can just sit in line and chat and the time goes by quick and you get good seats. And sitting in line sometimes is actually quite fun *g*
cortexiphan juice box: BSG - Baltar's Divine Interventionhollywoodgrrl on February 25th, 2007 05:41 am (UTC)
James!!! I am in love with that man. :)

Yeah, people were asking for spoilers on one side of the room and on the other side they were beeing booed. The non-spoiler talk won over.

Kevin Smith is a dirty dirty man. He curses a lot. But it was really funny. :)

And yes, to be able to get into these panels sometimes is a real mission. We were a bit confused about when people would start being let in so we decided to come only a couple hours early. But even showing up that early the line was massive. And it was horribly cold, but standing with a buncha fandom geeks made it fun. I do like to stand around in line when it is warm. :)

So...you were actually in the same room as James Callis and Tricia Helfer? Like, breathing the same air?

Trisha Helfer dropped the Captain Tightpants bomb at Dragoncon '05 as well - I think she likes revealing that bit of trivia amongst those of us who would appreciate it most. *LOL*

Sounds like you had a fantastic time! Thanks for sharing the recap and the photos! (She is the tallest, thinnest alien creature, isn't she?? Wow!)
cortexiphan juice box: BSG - Baltar + Head!Six = <3hollywoodgrrl on February 28th, 2007 02:44 pm (UTC)
Whaaaaat? If she dropped it in '05, then how come it's not the most common news on the internets? It should be as wide a fact as two pieces of bread with stuff in the middle makes a sandwich!

Incredible! Anyway, I'm waiting to see if anyone hits Nathan with the question at Wondercon this weekend.

Oh Tricia...:D
