Oh my God... I can definitely say that I realized another of my geeky goals in life. This last Sunday me and my husband TheEyeProjects
had the opportunity to meet Charles Martinet
, the voice of Mario
! It's a me, Mari!
Mario-look-a-like contest was a lot of fun! The contestants had to dress up as Mario and say the famous phrase "it's me, Mario"
in front of Charles Martinet and try a "Mario jump", just like on the games. I had to make my female Mario outfit very fast to be able to participate on time.
During the "meet & greet"
and autographs session we all had the opportunity of a couple of minutes to talk to Charles, take photos and have an awesome signature on our "Super Mario 3D World"
copy, t-shirts, plushies and so on!Meeting the hero!
I wouldn't imagine that this voice actor could be so kind and so lovely. He is always smiling, always happy to talk to people and to play some Mario quotes to make everybody laugh. He is definitely Mario in all the ways and I just felt like a happy kid again after he laugh of my silly "Mario acting", hahah.
For a big Nintendo and Super Mario fan, this was really a dreamy day! (Yay, we won a Mario-Cat hat!
See you next time, oh-hoo!
