When it was my turn to meet him at the autograph session that Sunday, I was smiling like a dork the entire time. He signed my mother's card, and I got two CD's, a picture of Tamaki, and a bumper sticker signed by him as well. He pointed out how my cosplay looked amazing, and I said "Thank you, I made it from scratch!"
He instantly looked at me, then my mother, with a shocked expression. "NO WAY!!"
How I remember this, I have no idea. But he asked for a hug, and I said yes. My mother took the photo. Earlier I had said that he was one of the people that brought me into the music and acting industries, and he wished me the best of luck with my career, and my learner's permit (I'll get my license soon, Vic, I promise!).
When I left the room, I started to cry because I was happy.
The last time I saw him was at Katsucon 2018. I was cosplaying Belle that year and I was walking through the atrium with a friend of mine. I saw him walking towards me and I wasn't sure if it was him or not. So I called out, "Vic Mignogna?"
I had a feeling he recognized me when he responded with "Hey, girl!" And fingerguns. We passed each other before he said that we both looked great. And that was the last time I saw him. I couldn't make it to Con Alt Delete this year due to scheduling complications.
Vic, I don't know if you will see this. But if it weren't for you, I don't know what I'd be doing with my life. Thank you. ♡
