Meeting Mario-Charles Martinet

12th September 2009 at 2:22 pm

Dear Chibi,
Today Markos and I woke up nice and early  to head off to meet Charles Martinet- the English voice actor for Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Wario!! He was going to make his final appearance today at Harvey Norman CONVENIENTLY located at Auburn!!! LOL! I still find that awfully amusing..That is such a random location, hahaha..but it’s PERFECT for us!! XD

We were about the 9th-10th person to queue up, along with others who arrived really really early in anticipation ^_^ I was excited! We got there around 8am, but he wasn’t going to appear until 11am.  First I thought 3 hours was going to be quite a wait, but surprisingly time flew really really quick! Everyone was really friendly and most had their DS out playing, while Markos and I played with our gameboy.

While waiting, the staff actually came around and gave us Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and a bottle of water :D How nice is that?

Freebies for the first 50 people lining up! I got a limited edition figurine of Koopa Troopa. Not..exactly the character I wanted, but it was classified as “medium rarity” so that made me happy. XD

Mario confetti

The first two people in line made this out of the confetti all over the ground. How cute ^^
