Category Archives: FOCO COMIC CON
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!
Please join us as we review the year in song, to the tune of Auld Lang Syne!….Get ready, it’s a long one!!
First, the Chorus:
Should Awesome people be forgot
And all the awesome times?
Should Awesome in Action be forgot
An Auld lang syne?
And now, the song:
We got a new illu-stra-tor
His name be Darby boy
Senora Urban’s Helping out
Translating to Spanish joy
Surely the Nemesis video will rock
And surely the Peaks do, Right?
Let’s not forget fun times at Monroe
With Author visits and Literacy Night!
We made new friends; great advocates
The Flet-cher Fam-i-ly
Have brought us in to Community Pre-K
And High Plains school with glee
We twer lu-ck-y to watch th-e burn
Ripple Effect’s black belt tests
And made a great new film with Alayna,
& Ninja Nate; our filming bests
In Estes Park we met a gal
We had a blast in a parade
With our Friends who didn’t shove
And here’s a hand to C.A.S.T for Kids
And help from What if? -Ideation
We went all the way to Boulder Rainbow Childcare
To spread our ins-pira-tion.
Foco Comic Con, a great success-
Anyone can be a hero, we say
We made costumes, and made some friends
A grand and funny day!
The librarians in Love-land
At the Author Showcase gave us Love
And at Crossroads Church, with Dream Catcher
We saw Loveland from above.
The year came to an Awesome End
With a visit to Prairie School–
A friend from Ability-Fest came through
And the students were so cool!
The Cub Scout Troop Nin-ty-one
Met and drew some pictures, too
And now we’re fundraising for an adaptive zipline
With a girl scout troop so true.
A non-profit, AiA now be
And we vow to see it through
We’d love to have your continued support
Please let us come to you!
Who knew this song could be so long?
Who knew the many verse?
At least we got a chance to say
All we’ve done, for better or worse
Have a Safe and Happy New Year!!!
