Toronto SFX

Nice little set up at the Toronto Science Fiction and Horror Expo. You can see the swords are all in the back well out of the way of the kidlings, and we put glass and screen on the wooden display units in front. Way in back are our neighbours...who put out a very unusual product...evil teddy bears. More about them later...grin!
Here is Janika getting quite excited about the big peckers in Toronto. Hmmmmm.

The entrance to the fan expo is down this escalator. Check out the cool terrazzo inlays in the floor!


The view from our hotel room. Nice shot looking North on University Ave.

Demo Day

demo at the Glebe Community Centre. only 24 kids this year. Last year it was nearly twice as many!

Very attentive kids.

I like dressing up the councillors.


I don't think he looks too bad does he?

Puts it all into perspective.

(I've been working in the shop pretty heavily this week, some of the nice stuff I have come up with is on my armouring blog....http://southtowerarmouringguild.blogspot.com.) Once in a while its nice to just get some distance. This video does that all right.

Creative Parking






Watching a fella failing to fit his motorhome under the canopy at Canada Customs on Thurdays put me in mind of these humours pictures.
It was just one of those days.... just glad it wasn't me.
