Hi! My name is Miles, I'm 22 years old, and a huge fan of John Barrowman. I was introduced to him through Doctor Who, Captain Jack Harkness' first appearance in "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances" was the first episode of DW I watched, and I like to say that Captain Jack is my spirit animal. Since then, my love of him & his work has only grown. I love him in Torchwood, as a guest & host on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, in The Producers, the Sondheim musical revue Putting It Together, as Zaza in La Cage aux Folles, the BBC program The Making of Me, his appearances on Loose Women, his brilliant acting & ad-libbing in Shark Attack III: Megalodon, and the tons of albums he's recorded. (I even played Captain Jack in a Doctor Who dance-number a group of friends and I did in college, pictured left!)
That being said, I'm currently taking time off from grad school, and am barely making ends meet working my part-time job in customer service at a grocery store; there's no way I would be able to afford to go see & greet him when he's at Boston Comic Con in August... that's where you come in! I'm asking for help to make my dream of meeting John Barrowman come true, and since it's probably a once-in-a-lifetime thing, I want a souvenir that'll stay with me forever... and what better way than having him sign my bum and then getting it permanently tattooed?!
I know it's a bit silly, and the cause isn't anything like donating to disaster relief or helping to pay medical bills, but it would really mean so much to me. As a friend put it, help me get "the only butt tattoo in existence that matters." Hey, if some guy can raise $5,000 to make potato salad, I figured I'd put this out there and see if any people are willing & able to help me out!
Sunday Comic Con admission: $25 (+$1.62 fee)
John Barrowman photo op: $60 (+ $2.49 fee)
Having John Barrowman on my bum for the rest of my life: priceless.
P.S. this is completely serious. If I'm able to raise the money, no power on Earth (nor Gallifrey, nor the Boeshane Peninsula) will stop me from making this dream a reality! =)
