Vancon 2012 :: Kim Rhodes  
Kim was adorable and funny and cute - as always.  =D

Here are some of photos I took.  We had time inbetween panels so I randomly selected some to share now.   As the weekend progresses I'm pretty sure I won't have as much time to do this before I return home.

Kim looked fantastic.  Her dress, shorts and boots just looked amazing on her.   My daughter and I had a photo op with her as well.  Kim is from Portland and graduated from the same high school as my husband (a bit later than my husband.)  So in addition to her just being awesome, we feel a bit of a connection with her.

Kim told a cute story about Jared.   Kim's daughter was very much into the Disney movie "Finding Nemo," and so Kim had become used to mimicking the starfish from that movie who was normally stuck to the side of the fish aquarium, but at one point as the starfish was being pulled off the side of the aquarium, the starish would say over and over "finding my happy place, finding my happy place" in somewhat desperate tone of voice.  Kim mimicked that by flailing her arms out like a starfish being pried off the side of the aquarium.  She had done this once in front of Jared when she was stressed during a scene.  Jared had no clue what she was doing nor what she was referring to when she tried to explain it.   But later during a scene together when Kim flubbed something up, Jared mimicked the starfish being pulled off the tank and saying "finding my happy place, finding my happy place."   =D  And Kim of course, mimicked Jared doing that.   I have photos of it, but those will have to wait until I return home.

Oh, man! Thank you SO much for sharing those! Both the photos, and your impressions of meeting her and seeing her at the con. I needed some Kim Rhodes in my life today. She does, indeed, look awesome. (I have such a ridiculous crush on her! *facehands)

So unexpected, but you really brightened my day immensely. Thank you. ♥

You are welcome! I LOVE Kim so much! My daughter went with us to part of this con and when I asked her what were her favorite moments, she said the Kim Rhodes panel was one of her favorites. She hasn't seen any Jody Mills episodes but after seeing and meeting her (and Richard) she's decided she needs to watch all the SPN episodes, starting over with S1.

I iz happy.

:)

Thank you so much for sharing your experience again with us.
Kim is my favorite female co star on this show and your little story proves to me what a sweetheart she must be!
