Who is this? Charisma Carpenter, an actress and former San Diego Chargers cheerleader
What is this? An autographed 8x10 photo
Where'd I get it? Carpenter was a guest at the Dallas Comic Con this past weekend. Official Pix, the promoter for the show, offered the opportunity for people who couldn't attend the show to get autographs.
How much did it cost? About $36, including shipping
Why is this so special? Carpenter played Cordelia Chase for seven seasons, first on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," then on its spinoff, "Angel."
"Buffy" is one of my all-time favorite television shows, and I have a small collection of autographed photos of cast members and notable guest stars. I was happy to have the chance to get Carpenter's autograph -- it is the first new addition to the collection in a couple of years.
It looks like she only signed her first name, but I can't really decipher her handwriting well enough to be sure that it's not her last name.
