Ribbleblue Posted August 4, 2016 Share Posted August 4, 2016 He was awesome!! I only did the photoshoot, and I kinda regret now not getting an auto or even the diamond pass. He was smiling all the time, enjoying himself, and complimenting everyone who was in costume. When it was my turn he shook my hand and greeted me. I asked him for a back to back, arms crossed pose, he agreed with a smile, and then he shook my hand again - I got the impression that he was thankful for someone to break the monotony a bit, which made me feel like a million bucks! And of course the pic turned out amazing. I was already a big fan of his work, but he just earned my personal Coolest Guy in the World title. One of my friends also has a great story with him, and I don't think he's in the forum, so I'll tell it for him. When his turn came they were playing some rhythmic, bouncy music, and Jeremy was dancing along between pics, but no one followed suit. When my friend got to him he also danced a bit, and Jeremy did the two hands pointing gesture and told him "Yeah man, you got it!". There you have it. Hawkeye told him he's cool. Case closed. That is awesome to hear. I was wearing a costume on the Saturday. As I was leaving I did hear him saying something but didn't quite catch what it was. Might have been a compliment regarding my costume but not 100% sure. I did dance a little bit when I went up on the Sunday but he didn't see me. I did love that when I asked for hug he gave me a really tight hug. I've done loads of photoshoots and whenever I've gotten hugs in them they are usually quite polite, gentle hugs. I was expecting the same for Jeremy. I was pleasantly surprised when I got pulled in for a tight 'Jerbear hug'. It did lead to an inadvertent 'boob smoosh' but I didn't mind. Don't think I've ever had a hug like that in a guest shoot. Certainly not one that 95% of my body is being smooshed against the guest. More than made up for the very little I got to say in the autograph queue. I poorly timed that so didn't get the chance to say much when presenting my gifts for him and his daughter. Love that your friend got that moment. It is an awesome one. Jeremy is a top guy. On his Twitter page he has posted a photo of his daughter with some toys,thanking people for their kindness.I enjoyed my photo more than my auto too for similar reasons.Though I bet he was pleased you gave him a gift for his daughter. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
