Kodak Moment #102

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 the Ghoul and I at Motor City Comic Con.

The Ghoul is a TV host for “The Ghoul Show”, which back in the 1970’s and 1980’s my father was the art director on.   In the 2000’s The Ghoul started to show up at Motor City Comic Con as one of the guests.  When I was really young The Ghoul was a big part of my family life, even after the show was off the air my father would hold “Bring back the Ghoul” parties in hotel rooms at conventions.  I know this show was mainly shown in Ohio and Michigan, but I’ve met people all around this country who knows who the Ghoul is.  Including TMNT Artist, Ryan Brown who is a fan of the Ghoul Show.

My Turtle Costume is truly showing it’s age here.  The photo was taken in 2002, while my costume was finished being made on March 19th, 1993.  One of my elbow pads are gone, the plastron is showing that it’s starting to fall apart.  One thing I can see is that there is a convention badge on my wrist band. 

I will like to give a shout out to The Ghoul and his family.  We did learn this past month that the Ghoul was going in for a Triple-bypass, I want to wish the best of health to our family friend.  It’s not an easy time for the family, so I also want to throw out good wishes to his family and friends.  Here’s to many more years of laughter, blowing up toys and picking on Froggy!  Feel better soon!
