THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: City of Bones Hollywood Premiere

The cast at the L.A. Premiere
August 12, 2013 was THE day for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Hollywood Premiere! And, we even camped out for this exciting event! We weren't alone either; several other fans camped out as we did just to be "front and center" to be able to catch a glimpse of the celebrities walking down the black carpet from the fan barricade...and, yay, we sure did! We even won tickets to watch with the cast! 
Our tickets to watch the movie!
Let's start at the beginning of the day...since we camped out, we were already visited by Kevin Zegers and Jessica Postigo, that was an amazingly memorable experience. Well, as the day started, everyone that camped out started to clean up and get ready for the event. We noticed that more fans were coming out to line up for the premiere. We soon observed that they were setting up the barricades for the upcoming event. I then noticed that they DID set up a fan area! My excitement climbed a notch after seeing that. About noon, event security decided to give us tickets as line place holders, so that we can leave and do whatever we need to do before 4:30PM. They reminded us that we had to be back in line before then...before the event started. After we got our place holder tickets, we went back to the motel room where we freshened up for the evening's event! We were so excited that we got ready in no time flat...haha!!

When we returned to the Arclight theater, Cassandra, Mariah and I took our places in line with the others that camped out. Excitement among the fans in line started to escalate as time grew closer to the start of the black carpet event. About an hour before the arrival of guest celebrities, we instructed to procure our tickets at the "will call" table, and press had to line up, as well, to procure their press badges. Yay, Cassandra from The Mortal Minute and Tatiana from City of Shadowhunters for getting press!

As the guests started to arrive, Harald Zwart and Velsemoy Ruud Zwart were the first to come out to the fan area. They had just about the same excitement as the fans did! Harald and Velsemoy are such awesome people! How cool was that...they visited us while we camped out and even spent time with us in the fan area. They so rocked it that evening! Then, others followed to the fan area...OMG! It was one of the most amazing experiences that will be remembered for a long time to come! It was great! So many of the cast, crew and other guests came out and took their time with fans, including Jessica Postigo, Harry Von Gorkum, Aiden Turner, Jared Harris, Nathan Sykes (The Wanted) and, of course, our Shadowhunter Queen...Cassandra Clare! They are such amazing people! We had an absolutely exciting time at the fan area!

All the while, Cassandra and Tatiana were interviewing guests as they walked down the black carpet! As press, they were able to stand next to the black carpet and interview a few of the guests such as: Robert Kuzler (producer) and Jared Harris (Hodge Starkweather)...just to name a couple. How exciting was that! You go girls!

After the exciting rush of meeting a variety of celebrities at the fan area, we made a mad dash into the theater since the presentation of the film by Harald Zwart had already begun. We just made it in time to our seats before the movie started. We were ecstatic to be watching the movie before it is released on August 21, 2013! Woohoo!!! To be in the company of the cast, crew and other guests was nerve-wracking and exciting! Now, what I thought about the movie will have to wait...when I write up my review...haha! After the movie ended and the credits were rolling, Mariah did not want to leave! Yes, she definitely enjoyed the movie...but, I'm not going to go into details about the movie quite yet. As we were getting our things together to leave the theater, I noticed that Nathan Sykes was sitting a few rows behind us...Whoa! It was such an exciting experience.

As we made our way out of the theater, Mariah and I ran into Jessica Postigo! We were so in awe of the film that I was gushing! I just had to tell Jessica what we thought! She was so elated that we loved it! We then ran into the lovely ladies of Mundie Moms, Fangirlish and others before they left for the afterparty. I was able to get a photo op of the ladies that gave Mariah and I a chance to watch the movie that premiere night! A huge thank you to these ladies!
