My First Vampire Diaries Creation Convention Experience in Dallas, TX!

Weekend before last, I had the pleasure of finally attending my first Creation Entertainment Official Vampire Diaries convention, and I had a blast!

Arriving Friday evening, August 16th with my sister-in-law and niece (attending their first TVD con ever), registration was a piece of cake, we even had a chance to visit the vendor’s room so they could purchase their photos for the autographs. I treated my niece to all of my autographs that came with my Gold Admissions package as an early birthday present.

Saturday, August 17th, Steven McQueen, Zach Roerig, Arielle Kebbel, David Alpay, Todd Williams & Charlie Bewley graced the stage, and many laughs were had. Check out some great shots from the panels that day. Thanks to Cristy Torres & Carolyn Vic for sharing their photos with us! (I’ve also included a shot or two from Twitter, that I have no idea who they belong to, please speak up, and I’ll credit you!)


That Saturday evening, my niece and I attended the party. Steven McQueen, Zach Roerig, Trent Ford, Micah Parker, Todd Williams, David Alpay and Charlie Bewley were all there, and judged a dance contest. After the contest, several of the guys mingled and danced with the fans.

Micah Parker was so sweet to snap a photo with my niece!


Sunday, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Torrey DeVitto, Charlie Bewley, Trent Ford & Micah Parker appeared on stage. Again, thanks to Cristy Torres & Carolyn Vic for sharing these awesome shots! Check out Carolyn’s Twitter for more great photos!


It was an amazing weekend, something I was glad I was able to share with my SIL, niece and many friends that I’ve made through this fandom and was finally able to meet! The entire Creation staff and volunteers were amazing and very accommodating, we have already decided that we will be attending the convention again next year!

  1. I LOVE that you posted this! I was too big a mess afterwards to even organize my thoughts yet! I so loved seeing you again, meeting your SIL and niece (such a cutie), all the cast members I’d never met before, and, need I say, seeing my fave again in person after almost 3 years! xoxo
