I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life. A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen. This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own. I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo. If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well. Hope everyone enjoys. Today’s photo is at Toronto Fan Expo 2005.
Toronto Fan Expo had a handful of TMNT guests in 2005, that caught my attention. In this photo is Kirby Morrow, who is the voice of Michaelangelo from Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. My between us is DancingFae from TMNT-L. She flew in from Vancouver, Washington to come to Toronto Fan Expo with me. It was our second time meeting.
I am standing there with a big grin on my face. At this point I was still learning how to make my way through dealer rooms at conventions, as that is where you’ll find the autograph lines. And I learned a neat trick, if you are holding a camera in your hand people walk wide around you to avoid being filmed. So by holding a camera in my bad arm, I was protecting my arm. If people are interested why my right arm is a bad arm, check out this story here.
Kirby was a lot of fun to meet and a very nice guy. He is also the Vancouver voice of Goku from Dragon Ball Z! Which I am also a fan of. It was great talking with him, and he signed a handful of TMNT stuff for each of us in our group. On that trip Fae and I also had our friends Ziptango and MilyChan with us.
