The Masks of Fort Collins Comic Con 3

This August marked the 3rd year that Awesome in Action was able to participate in Fort Collins Comic Con!

Once again, we collected photos of amazing and exemplary costumes and masks in front of our skyscape. Some of the unique, creative & pretty costumes we came across were Hellboy, Kyle & Cartman from South Park, and Deadpool.

“The costumes were so good I was so scared, I hid in the elevator!”

We presented a panel called, “Anyone Can Be A Hero,” and this little guy, Adryian  created a mask to add to his ensemble. His costume was Rocket & Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. His grandmother and I talked about the possibilities of doing a Awesome in Action presentation at Adryian’s school, which got me pretty excited.

T-rex was my favorite because he was funny. He gave me a lot of Trex fist bumps.

I tried to bite Ponto’s head off in light of the zombie apocalypse that was happening around me. I enjoyed being with my crew that day. I want to thank Ponto, Ari, Thalia, Alex & Olivia for volunteering with me at Fort Collins Comic Con this year! If you are interested in volunteering with me for any of my events, please contact me at my website, awesomeinaction.com!

Looking forward to Fort Collins Comic Con 2019!

Open Streets: Cut the mustard, and Ride the Route this weekend in Fort Collins!

When asked about what he is  looking forward to most this Sunday as part of Open Streets,  Nick replies, “Mustard!  Yes, folks, there will be vendors, who will most probably be offering, a mustard…which apparently is very exciting!

Open Streets is a hip new, FREE event in Fort Collins that Awesome in Action has the good fortune to participate in this weekend.

On Sunday, from 10 am to 3 pm, a route running from North to South Fort Collins will be blocked off to traffic in order to provide a safe family-fun environment.

There will be face paint, bouncy castles, games, sidewalk chalk, snacks, and treats all along the route offered by various organizations and businesses throughout Northern Colorado.

 

Awesome in Action will be hosting a booth of experiences.  There will be an opportunity to race a friend in a manual wheelchair obstacle course,

 

converse or direct a friend through a maze with Augmentative Communication (using speech devices supplied by our favorite PRC Representative, Samantha Strong!)

 

 

 

and try out adaptive sidewalk chalk! (IF you can get it away from NICK for long enough!!)
