Hi guys :) I’m not sure if you want to know about this, and this is a Post-It dedicated page..but since this whole project is about Chris, I decided that a little report of one of the best days of my life thanks to him would fit well :)
I’m sure I won’t be brief, but I’ll concentrate on the moments when I had some sort of interaction with him..feel free to contact me on twitter or send me a private message if you wanna know more!
First of all, I went there dressed up like the pencil girl. A lot of people had amazing shirts, accessories all “lightning-bolt”-shaped, but I was the only one with a complete pencil-costume..so yeah, I drew the attention XD
Also, my dress lit up ‘cause I put led-lights under it..the effect inside the theatre was amazing :) Here I am:
I was there waiting outside the theatre since 9am and I spent the time with some amazing people..the waiting wasn’t bad at all!
When they had finally set up the red carpet and barriers I found myself behind the interviewers and televisions. Very close to the red carpet, but with no chance at all to interact with Chris ‘cause he couldn’t walk anywhere near us.
So I didn’t get a picture with him, I didn’t have him close. And you know what? I don’t care. I wasn’t there for an autograph or picture. I was there to support him. I couldn’t believe I had him just a few feet away from me. When he got there I freezed, not out of fear, but because of an overwhelming amount of emotions, so unreal. It felt like a dream. I didn’t even freak out..I was speechlees, just staring, my heart exploding.This is the only decent picture I took of him..he was that close:
Yes, I wished I could have some sort of interaction with him and when I thought I couldn’t even have that, I started crying. Well, I was wrong. You can’t imagine how the words “don’t stop believing” fit here.
As soon as Chris shifted in front of me to do an interview, he immediately noticed me. The reporters moved to give him a better view of me. He was right in front of me, he made eye contact with me. He spoke to ME, just me. He said: “Omg! Thank you! Thank you SO MUCH! You’re gorgeous!”…and I replied “no…thank YOU..for everything”.. and he made that smile which is a mix of pouting and smile…and it was the best thing I could ever ask for. He smiled because of me. He thanked me. How crazy is that? He didn’t have to thank me! I did nothing!
And you know what? There weren’t many people around me, ‘cause as soon as they understood we were behind the TVs, everybody moved away. There weren’t screaming girls around me, I was comfortable, no pushing, no confusion. In that moment, he gave me his WHOLE attention. He looked into my eyes and talked to me, I could perfectly hear him. I couldn’t wish for anything more perfect.
As if it wasn’t enough, Alla asked me if I wanted my book to be signed. I don’t know if she’ll never know how much what she did meant to me. I wasn’t going to ask for an autograph and where we were, Chris couldn’t sign anything. But she took my book and had it signed. I still can’t believe how lucky I’ve been, I feel so grateful.
No, I don’t have a video of him talking with me, I don’t have pictures. I would have NEVER ruined that moment thinking about taking pics or making a vid. I could speak with him, I have that moment so engraved in my mind, I will never, ever forget it. After that I started crying, all the emotions I had bottled inside exploding in that moment..and I’m so glad I had met these two INCREDIBLE girls, Ruzha and Silviya…we talked for about an hour before Chris arrived and we shared those moments together..they hugged me and hold me while I was crying, meeting them has been a BLESSING.
So..thank you Chris. For giving me your attention, for making me feel a little special for a few seconds. For making all my efforts SO worth it. For giving me the best gift you could, your smile.
Then we entered the theatre and that’s when I lit up my costume. He introduced the movie and when he looked towards us, he saw me and pointed at me and smiled, then he said something to Roberto. I was SO happy.
After the movie, he came back for Q&As and I’ve been lucky enough to ask him a question. I wanted to tell him something more and sweet after the question..but before I could talk, this happened and my mind went blank:
I took the microphone and when he noticed it was me and he saw my costume, he SMILED so wide…and people inside the theatre started cheering at ME and clapping their hands…and he did the same, while telling “I love it..I love it..”..here the gif of his smile and first “I love it”…*-*(thanks Barb!)
This was my dress effect:
It can be described as the most unbelievable, amazing, exciting, touching moment in my entire life, because I did it all for HIM and HE was there clapping his hands for me, he who has done so much for so many people, and me, just a normal girl who did absolutely NOTHING except trying to celebrate in the best way possibile his achievement…
Anyway, after that I just asked my question, which has been the happiest and more difficult moment during the whole SBL project. I couldn’t say anything more, ‘cause I was floored. I sat back down and just stared, for good 15 minutes, without any reaction.
Here the two best pics I took of him inside..
So..that’s it. I kept re-living those moments so many times, laughing and crying, not completely realizing they were real. There’s still a part of me that can’t believe this happened.
I left for Paris with no expectations. I came back with the best experience of my life, I still can’t stop smiling.
DREAMS DO COME TRUE. You just don’t give up. I was scared, worried, I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t want to impose, I didn’t scream to get his attention, I didn’t try to get the best places or anything. And look what happened to me. Sometimes things don’t work out, I know. BUT sometimes they do.
That’s why I think that every single moment in our lives should be lived for these moments, when all you’ve ever wished for comes true.
I met Chris Colfer yesterday! He was amazing! He actually made eye contact with me as you can see on the pic! :)
