Actor Ian Somerhalder is seen here at the Built of Barnwood‘s one-year anniversary celebration at Century Hall in Bay St. Louis yesterday (March 24, 2013). Built of Barnwood (B.O.B) is a business he co-owns with his brother Bob in Bay Saint Louis.
The event lasted from 11A.M – 4P.M. and over 2,000 fans showed up, to meet Ian and gaze in to his piercing sexy blue eyes, and for photograph and autograph opportunities.
Ian was seen signing pictures, posters, crucifixes and other pieces of art made by the company.
Professional photography packages with Ian were available at a pre-sale price of $25 or $30 at the door for an 8×10 photograph and a digital JPEG emailed. They sold over 200 photo packages for the event.
Fans waited in a line that stretched out the door, into the streets, to meet Somerhalder.
“He is awesome and hot,” said Brittany Crapps with a smile.
“He goes green. He loves pets. He’s just all around a great guy and looking great doesn’t hurt either,” said Amber Rhodes. Amber is right, that pretty much sums up Ian!
For birthday girl Mercedes Mayfield, this was a special treat. “I’m about to turn 16, this was like my birthday present,” said Mayfield.
