Public Shame!
Now you ask, "what does this have to do with monsters?". Well, this is a clear example why you should never mess with us at the Monster Factory. After one of our workstudy students challenged us to find an embarrassing photo of her Anime North costume online she couldn't have expected this. Here's to you Double J.

p.s. We warned her that if we found the picture we'd publish it.
Happy Birthday Bliss Man!
From everyone at the Monster Factory and this pitcher guy you like.
May your day be filled with lots of love and laughter.
Weekend in Cabbagetown

This three day show began on Friday at 6am when the 200 or so exhibitors were allowed to claim their booth space for the weekend. Unfortunately that was just too early for us and we opted for a 7:30am run at it. Being our first time doing this show we had no idea what to expect of this scramble for land. It turns out that bringing our sign would have been helpful or a marker and even a piece of paper. Seeing as we had none of these things we relied on fellow exhibitors and a handy stick to claim our space.
Did I mention we won our first award? I'm very excited about it even though it's only an honorable mention. We got balloons and had some pictures taken of us. Thanks Cabbagetown!

Cabbagetown Art and Crafts Show

This show will be the last of our outdoor shows for the year. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it won't rain. It should be a fun weekend. It's located right outside the Riverdale farm. I haven't been there since I was a kid, so it'll be a walk down memory lane...

Monster Factory at Fan Expo 2006

This weekend we ventured into the unknown and participated in our very first comic book expo. It was held here in Toronto at the Metro Convention Center.

Part of coming to this convention is dressing up as your favourite sci-fi/anime/horror character. We were in the company of Darth Vadar, Spiderman, and several Luke Skywalkers. At one point I think I even saw a Goofy and this is just to name a few. All in all, it was an impressive sight.

Princess Leia was also there and I mean the real one, Carrie Fisher. She was there signing autographs. I was personally really excited about seeing Gates McFadden who played Dr. Beverly Crusher on Star Trek the Next Generation. Unfortunately I missed her autograph session and was very disappointed. Other celebrity highlights were: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Linda Blair, Alice Cooper, and Rowdy Roddy Piper. Rhya would probably add the cast of Degrassi.

Okay, so I was a little starstruck...

Here are some pictures from our weekend:
