Eh? What contest? o__O

Congrats either way, though.

It was a contest that was in one of the comics a few months ago called "Name That Turtle" Contest. Mirage Publishing has adopted some kind of endangered turtle. They raise money to track it and ensure its survival. Well it first just had a number so they wanted to give it a name. They had a contest to where if they picked the name you submitted, then you would win a Leonardo and Raphael cold cast statue. I picked Akemi. It's Japanese. It means "bright and beautiful" because that is what I think turtles are.

Wow.. that's cool! COngrats. :)

What do you get for a prize, I have to wonder? The honor of having a turtle named with something you chose?

01-05-2005, 02:44 PM
Yeah that and the Leo and Raph cold cast statues.

Domo! :D That freaked me out. For a minute I was trying to remember what the shell the contest was about.

01-06-2005, 12:06 PM
Yeah that and the Leo and Raph cold cast statues.


You get *two* stautues too...?! Slag, that is a very awesome win! Woot!

01-06-2005, 12:53 PM
That's all so totally cool, Kazari! :)

*pouts* I want a Leo statue too! :P

01-06-2005, 03:11 PM
Ryo, check out the Buying/Selling Topic. I am going to sell my older Leo statue at a lower price. *laughs* I am not going to really make any final judgments until I actually receive my statues in the mail LOL

01-06-2005, 07:15 PM
YOU WON!!!!!! WOOOOOO!!! The NA Wood Turtle naming contest it was.
I suggeted my wood turtle's name of Jessie.

Akemi is good.

heh funny, Akemi is the name of one of two girls who are in love with Musashi in the Samurai Trilogy(the T.Mifune one-the good one!) Great movie series if you never seen it.

There was a delay on the Raph statues so dunno if they'll send that...who knows.

01-06-2005, 09:47 PM
Awesome glad you won! And enjoy your prizes

01-06-2005, 10:45 PM
I was wrong...its actually Leonardo and Michelangelo, so I'll end up selling them when I get them because I already have those LOL I need Raph!

01-07-2005, 11:14 PM
Congrats on winning! I am kind of jealous though cause i also entered the contest. :cry: Oh well,mabe next time. The name I choose was really corny. I entered the name Natalie Wood Turtle :P . Congrats again!

01-09-2005, 01:04 PM
Pretty sweet..I had meant to enter that contest but forgot to...oh well..glad to see someone from the forum win it though... :D

01-09-2005, 04:15 PM
Thanks! I appreciate it!

01-11-2005, 02:36 AM
Congrats on the win, Kazari. Glad to se a 'Dromer win such a big contest, too bad you already have those two, but I'll take them off your hands! Lol. Won't they let you switch one up for Raph?

01-11-2005, 04:56 AM
hey, congrats! *hands over a dragon of celebration* you must feel proud :)

01-11-2005, 06:07 AM
Why don't you keep the two statues for a while and trade them for a Raph and Mikey later?

01-11-2005, 09:30 AM
Nah I can't really trade them. I already have Leonardo and Michelangelo. I am going to sell them to use the money for one to buy Raphael when he comes out and use the other money for a convention I am going to in February.

01-11-2005, 12:15 PM
Oops, meant to say swop them for Don and Raph, not Mikey and Raph! But that's cool, selling one for the money for another :P

01-11-2005, 01:55 PM
Wow :o Kazari Congratulations!!! :D :D Cool Name :)

01-11-2005, 03:15 PM
Yeah I just got them in the mail today so I will be opening Leo tonight when
i come home from work to swap him with my old one and then take pics to post them on ebay. I am willing to sell them and I have a topic posted on the Buying and Selling. I am going to put them on ebay later on this week.

01-11-2005, 06:56 PM
Thats really cool, Congrats!!!!

01-12-2005, 02:40 AM
That's awesome! Go you! :D What a pretty name you chose.

Congratulations Kazari, and because it is for a good cause, here's something nice. I initially wanted to do more effects, but I then thought I'd ruin it by adding more effects. I hope you like it.

Click for Prize (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v31/Anarky/GFX/Akemi.jpg)Whoa! Anarky, that's very sweet of you! Kaz will love it! No, extra effects aren't necessary. Being a sea turtle, she's beautiful enough and doesn't need any more glitzy stuffs. :)

Awww thanks Anarky!! That was really sweet of you.

BTW: TigerFog, I love your new avatar.
