First came the Hot Topic Cast Tours in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New Jersey.
Then Seventeen Magazine ran a Vampire Diaries set visit contest (for US residents only).
In July, Australian fans will be treated to a Hub Productions’ Vampire Diaries Fan Event with guests Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Nina Dobrev (Elena), and Paul Wesley (Stefan) attending.
And now this week, ITV2 announced they’re offering UK fans of our beloved show a chance to win a 3-day all-expenses paid trip to fly across the ocean to Atlanta, Georgia to visit the set of The Vampire Diaries AND have the show’s make-up artists turn them into vamp vics.
Sounds bloody fang-tastic if you’re a Vampire Diaries fan residing in the US, Australia or the UK.
Lucky ducky you.
If you’re a Vampire Diaries fan residing in Canada (like yours truly), however, this really bites.
That’s right. I said it bites. And it does. *cue TVDCFP (as demonstrated by moi above)*
Yes, despite the Pilot episode being filmed here in Vancouver, BC and some serious Canadian talent on the show’s roster – Nina Dobrev (Elena), Sarah Canning (Aunt Jenna) – Canadian TVD fans have yet to reap a single on-home-turf-promotional-perk for their devoted following of the show. So riddle me this vamp fans, event organizers, magazine editors and Vampire Diaries Powers-That-Be:
What DOES a girl have to do to get Canada on this TVD fun-fan-perks brigade?
Btw (that’s by-the-way) got blood if it helps. 😉
