Kodak Moment #73

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 from Katsucon 2008. 

I love going to conventions with friends and this was one of those great memories.  I joined at Katsucon by my friends Crittle and Fae.  This was a normal convention for Crittle as she lived not too far and her family was able to join us.  Her boyfriend, whom we called OMG and her son, Cody.  In this photo we’re all posing with Michael Sinterniklaas

Over a year ago, we lost Crittle as she passed away in her sleep.  I miss our friend as she has met up with me for many different conventions.  Crittle was a huge fan of Venture Brothers, even had different tattoos for Venture Brothers.  While we mostly talk about Michael for his work as Leonardo here on Cowabunga Corner, Crittle loved him as Dean Venture.  We all were amused by the clothing Michael has on here, because he’s dressed like Dean. 

Oh and I think this was the haircut that got me thinking about growing my hair long.  I hated this hair cut and so many great photos has me with that short of hair.  Started to really grow my hair out in 2009, don’t think I’ll go back to it being that short ever again.  

I have not been back to Katsucon since 2009, though I do remember it being a fun convention that I went to for a few years with my friends.  I still go to conventions with friends around the United States to keep making great memories like this one.  It’s memories like these, that helps me keep Crittle alive in the memories of others. 

Do you go to conventions or events with friends?  Did you know Crittle?  Have you ever met Michael Sinterniklaas?  Please share thoughts, comments and questions below!
