If you plan to attend Wizard World Ohio Comic Con, sharing your photos and anecdotes with us would be greatly appreciated.
On the same topic, check out the photos taken at this year Philadelphia Comic Con and Chicago Comic Con. You can also read the following blog posts: Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair, The Story Behind the 'Mystery Meal' Photo Op with Summer.
Find below a series of lovely photos of Summer Glau, Morena Baccarin and Alan Tudyk taken at the Firefly panel at Wizarld World Chicago Comic Con 2013.
Each convention brings its fresh share of photo ops with Summer Glau. Since they're made directly at her signing booth, you don't always get top notch quality but each time it's an unforgettable moment for the fans who are lucky enough to meet Summer. For the fans who could not attend the convention, watching these photos is a way to participate to the event after all and makes you feel you belong to a community of fans.
Anyway, one of the first photos from the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con that surfaced online caught my attention; the picture shows Summer Glau and a fan, named Ant, holding cans with no labels. Ant looks as if something went wrong, while Summer has a funny, innocent expression on her face, see for yourself:
I was intrigued and I must say that I didn't get the nod to a Whedon tv show at first sight (even if Ant’s Fruity Oaty bar t-shirt was an indication). It's only when Ant put me on the right trail that I was able to get the nod to a scene in Firefly episode four titled 'Shindig', when River Tam, experiencing another of her manic outbursts, frantically shreds the Blue Sun labels of the canned food supplies.
As our member Cegorah said, this is a "Good, awesome, scary, spooky scene - all at the same time, just like so many scenes with River". Here's a gif from the scene:
Back to the story behind the photo op. In Ant's own words:
Summer's reaction was so adorable when I pitched her the idea. She was so willing to oblige.
Rehearsing the "Mystery Meal" Photo Op. I think she likes it!
But there's more to come. Ant has made more than 100 photos of his Summer Glau experience and agreed to share them with us, so stay tuned for more! A huge thank you to Ant (@Spidey_Ant) for his imagination and sense of humor.

We knew from the Arrow season & & 2 sizzle reel shown at this year Comic Con that Felicity Smoake is present in every scene with Isabel Rochev and Oliver Queen (see screencaps below). More, Arrow writers confirmed that scenes between Emily Bett Rickards and Summer Glau "were coming". And of course everyone is wondering what the dynamic between the Isabel, Oliver and Felicity will be.
Well, Emily Bett Rickards has lifted the lid a bit on some of the interactions between the three of them in a video interview from Comic-Con (funnily enough, her Arrow co-star Colton Hayes says jokingly to Emily that she might have revealed too much).
Emily Bett Rickards and Colton Haynes Talk Arrow Season 2 at San Diego Comic Con 2013 - some Season 2 spoilers are talked about, so be warned!
The part on Summer Glau's character starts at 6:45 of the video:
Interviewer: What kind of interaction is coming with Summer Glau’s Isabel Rochev?
Emily Bett Rickards: “Summer is so fantastic, she really is. Isabel comes in to Queen Consolidated. Felicity still works at Queen Consolidated, and we get to see her sort of exercise or stage a meeting between Isabel and Oliver, in hopes to protect Queen Consolidated,” Emily reveals.

And now I hope everyone is even more excited to watch the snappy scenes between Isabel, Oliver and Felicity (and Diggle) on the second season of Arrow, premiering on Wednesday, October 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
I have added a series of lovely high quality images of Summer Glau, some with Firefly alumnis Morena Baccarin and Alan Tudyk, from the Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con, taken by GettyImages photographer.

Bonus: Here are the high resolution images with Morena Baccarin.
For those who went to Chicago Comic Con last week-end, you probably met in the show hall some gentle people wearing flowers in their hair.
In addition, you may have seen all across this site photos of the Firefly gang - Summer Glau, Morena Baccarin and Alan Tudyk - wearing flower crowns, these ones:
Summer (Glau) time was filled with love there, not to mention that Morena Baccarin was obviously pregnant. All accross the convention, you could see people in motion, eager to celebrate their love for the celebrity guests.
I was wondering where this strange vibration came from and came up with the following explanation: Summer, Morena and Alan's flower crowns were offered by a shiny cosplayer named Maya Dinerstein, aka Ask Kaylee Frye. Find below a photo featuring Morena Baccarin Baccarin and Maya:
I actually met Morena a bit earlier in the day because her signature line was so small, me and a friend snuck in and gave her flower crowns (for her and Alan and Summer). She wore hers the rest of the day, it did match her outfit.
And no, this is not a photo featuring Morena and the real Jewel Staite. Ask Kaylee Frye does not only cosplay our favorire mechanic, she also shares with Jewel Staite an uncanny resemblance; here are more photos of Maya:

A huge thank you to Ask Kaylee Frye for her creativity and for being so awesome!
Side note: if the title of this blog post or my prose sounds familiar, it's because I thought the lyrics of Scott McKenzie's song "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" would fit perfectly.
The Australian edition of FHM has compiled their list of the 100 sexiest women of 2011.

The sci-fi dream
In Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Summer plays a cyborg sent back through time by John Connor to protect and serve himself as a young man. Who would you rather came back in time to be your obedient play pal: Arnie or Summer?

A video taken at Dallas Comic Con 2012 has some great scenes from a private autograph session with Summer Glau. It's a pleasure to watch Summer interact with her fans and their children. You can even see that Smallville alumna Laura Vandervoort is fangirling over Summer Glau to.
Find below pictures of Summer Glau with Laura Vandervoort and her handlers James (with the cap) and Guillermo, whose job is to make sure everything goes smoothly for Summer and the fans. One thing is certain, Summer and her sister Kaitlin appreciate them.
