Review: Youmacon 2015

Halloween weekend has always been one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Growing up, it was for the Holiday.  I loved dressing up in costumes, seeing other people in costumes and the free candy.  I enjoyed the events and just getting to be out in public with the costumes my dad made.  In 2004 I thought that was all going to change for me, as I got hurt at work on October 26th only to find that wearing costumes was a no go.  That was one of the worse Halloweens of my life, as I realized just what I lost from my injury.  In 2005, I had no time to think about Halloween as I was in Vegas on Ha

Youmacon and Midwest Media Expo 2015!

 

This is Youmacon… this is Youmacon, Youmacon, Youmacon!  That’s right, it the week of Youmacon, which means it’s also Halloween and I’m just so excited to be returning to one of my favorite conventions of the year.  A great staff, awesome talent and a big fun location.  Fun panels and amazing concerts!  In this write up I’ll share a bit about Youmacon 2014 and since Youmacon is ran by the same crew as Midwest Media Expo, I felt this was a great time to pull out one of the TMNT Panels I did at Midwest Media Expo 2015! 

CCN: IDW TMNT Interview Michael Dialynas

 

IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has been bringing us all sorts of cool artwork.  The new styles coming with guest artist all the time.  This makes it so the fans are not just excited to see what is going to happen next in the on going story, though we also want to see the new art style as it’s coming at us.  We all have our favorites and the ones we don’t really like, the best thing about that is there’s something for everyone.  At New York Comic Con 2015 I got to catch up with one of the new artist for IDW, Michael Dialynas.

Kodak Moment #38

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 my visit to the set of the Next Mutation.

Review: New York Comic Con 2015

Every year I try to make it out to New York Comic Con.  This is the second time where I did not think I was going to make it for the event, until the last month.  New York Comic Con is a huge event filled with panels, dealers, and guests.  For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans it’s become one of the best events to go too for a yearly dose of Turtle fun.  Here is my review of New York Comic Con 2015.

Going into the Secrets of the SewersThis past Saturday Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took over at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. That was the day that the “Secrets of the Sewers” Exhibit opened up to the public.  This is a large Exhibit full of games, props, and group activities.  Made to help families and friends learn to work together as a team while enjoying our fab four Turtles!  Here is my review of the “Secrets of the Sewers” Exhibit.

Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : Secrets of the Sewers

Preliminary concept digital models, Sewer Lair—Common Room.If there’s one place I truly enjoy seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it’s in Museums.  The first time I saw this was the Words & Pictures Museum, which remains my favorite Museum I’ve ever been too.  They even had an Exhibit for the Next Mutation, and Turtles were always on display there.  Since then I do look and have found TMNT in a few other museum settings, but nothing like what is happening this year as The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has set up the “Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : Secrets of the Sewer” Exhibit!

ScareFest 2015 Convention Review

ScareFest is a convention in Lexington, KY for Paranormal and Horror fans.  2015 saw it’s eighth event, though it didn’t seem to be the powerhorse it has been in the last few years. In previous years, ScareFest had such a crowd that it was impossible to walk around inside the Lexington Convention Center, granted the space is not incredibly large, but it is fine for a small convention. Last year and the year before, I thought ScareFest had outgrew the convention center, though this year, it seemed to be the perfect size.
