Have you bought your tickets for TVD Chicago, yet? If not, you may want to hurry, because tickets are going fast! Gold passes are already 2/3rds sold out, so if you’re planning to buy one, it would be a good idea to do it soon. The convention will take place April 14th-15th, 2012 at the Westin O’Hare in Chicago, IL. Scheduled guests include Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Michael Trevino, Zach Roerig, Daniel Gillies and Joseph Morgan.
Guess what? We’re going, too! Vampire-Diaries.net will not only be attending the convention, we’re taking the stage to present a couple panels of our own. We’ll be doing a different panel each day, and we’ve also teamed up with Creation Entertainment to offer a no-public-speaking-required trivia option for anyone who wants to test their knowledge without the pressure of a timed game. Check it out:
Mackin’ On The Monsters: The Changing Look Of Vampires & Werewolves In Film
Join us for a look at some of film and television’s most famous vampires & Werewolves, and how their looks and appeal have changed over the years. From scary to sexy, we’ll show you how our favorite monsters have gone from devils to dates, upgrading their style and trading coffins for Camaros. We’ll also talk about some of the popular myths, show you which ones made the cut for The Vampire Diaries and give you a look at some of the characters that the Vampire Diaries‘ cast have named as their favorite Hollywood bloodsuckers.
Scare Me, Stake Me, You Can’t Break Me: The Women Of TVD
The Vampire Diaries has some fantastic female characters, many of whom have undergone major changes from their first appearance to the present day. From April 1 – April 7th, we’ll be asking fans to vote on their favorite bad-ass, loyal and all around awesome moments by the female characters on the show. Join us at the convention to see the results and celebrate some of your favorite TVD ladies. We’ll talk about how they’ve changed throughout the course of the show, what unique qualities each character brings to the table and what makes The Vampire Diaries one of the best shows on TV when it comes to portraying strong women and girls.
Mr. Saltzman’s History Test
Don’t like being put on the spot? This test has no time limit and nobody watching you. We’re supplying the questions for a test of your Vampire Diaries historical knowledge, keep an eye out for it near the registration area when you check in. Just fill it out and drop it off, an Alaric stand-in will grade it (bourbon-free grading, we promise!) and all A students will receive a prize.
This convention is going to be epic. Come on out to support the actors and show some love for the show (and make sure we’re not talking to an empty room, pretty please?), we hope to see you there! Tickets are on sale now at Creation Entertainment’s website, and you can follow @TVDCon for more information and updates as they happen.

Disclaimer: I do not work for Creation Entertainment. Vampire-Diaries.net has no prior experience or existing relationship with the company. I paid full retail price for every ticket and piece of merchandise I bought. I am not being paid or compensated in any way for anything written in this blog. This was my first TV show or movie convention and my first time meeting any of the cast.
Before we get started, understand that this is a review, not a recap. I went to TVD Nashville to review the convention itself – how it was organized, what the staff was like, whether or not the fans had fun, and why. If you’re looking for more general coverage, head over to Vampire Diaries Online, they’ve got great stuff from both days already up.
If you’re wondering whether or not to attend TVD Chicago (or any other Creation Convention, really), then this is the post for you.
For anyone in a hurry who needs a shorter version, here it is: Go buy your tickets for the Chicago event! I’m serious. Go buy them right now. Creation Entertainment puts on a great con. Some of you who saw me looking like roadkill on Sunday may have your doubts, but the fact that this event reduced me to staggering incoherence is nothing but a credit to them, the cast, and the lovely, fun people who attended. It was an awesome weekend. I had no bad experiences and there are only a few things I think could use improvement. Overall, I was very impressed with the company and the event.
What, now you want details? I’ve got them.
Creation Entertainment has posted ticket prices for its Vampire Diaries conventions in Nashville (Sept 17-18, 2011) and Chicago (April 14-15, 2012)
There’s been some confusion about this, so for the sake of clarification: guests scheduled for both conventions include Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies.
To date, David Anders is scheduled to appear only at the Nashville event.
Prices for ticket packages (Gold, Works, Preferred), general admission and single-day admission have all been posted for both conventions. Check the individual event pages for prices and details.
Creation Entertainment has confirmed that Daniel Gillies will appear at their convention in Chicago on April 14, 2012, in addition to the earlier event in Nashville.
Joseph Morgan will also appear on Saturday, while Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder are scheduled for Sunday. So far, Gold packages are on sale; other ticketing options will be available later. We’ll keep you updated as more details on the weekend are released.

Creation Entertainment has updated the info page for their Vampire Diaries convention in Chicago, April 14-15, 2012. Creation Chicago with the Stars of The Vampire Diaries (#TVDChicago) will take place at the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, near O’Hare International Airport. Information on hotel reservations is forthcoming.
The page also lists a few confirmed guests: Joseph Morgan for Saturday and Paul Wesley for Sunday (the same as the Nashville con). But since a lot of text seems to be copied and pasted from the Nashville entry (including still having Nashville in the opening paragraph), we’ll take that as somewhat tentative for the moment.
Well, this is exciting! Creation Entertainment has a few interesting listings on their upcoming event schedule: two special events with Paul Wesley, one in Nashville this September and one in Chicago next April.
Details are pretty scant at the moment, with Creation’s website saying details to come, but cross your fingers extra hard. While we’re pretty sure Creation wouldn’t list the events unless they were 100% confirmed with Paul’s people, hopefully we’ll get more info/further confirmation soon.
