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!

Kindergartners Explore their Inner Hero

Is there a better way to spend the afternoon than helping kindergartners create alter-egos?

Nick with volunteers

Team Awesome in Action doesn’t think so!

Nick, Lead Cool Guy of Awesome in Action, took job coach, Audrey, and Awesome Volunteers; Alex, Thalia, and Olivia on a great adventure to T.R. Paul Academy of Arts and Knowledge. There, we visited his old stomping grounds and some of his favorite teachers in their new location!

Great and knowledgeable kindergarten teacher, Amy Jenes, invited the team to her classroom to share a presentation with all of the TPAAK kinders.

The students learned about how Nick found his inner strengths, and then used that knowledge to find their own “super powers” to create a new team of Kinder super heroes!

 

 

 

Many super heroes were created that day, including Rainbow Girl, Basketball Boy, and Racer X!

 The kids even helped Nick create and try on a mask… Look at those super helpers! 

Nick and Brodie

 

Nick had a great time with his friend, Brodie, who was part of the kindergarten class!

We hope we helped all these wonderful kids understand how great they truly are, and to use their strengths proudly as they continue to grow and learn!

Until next time, fellow super heroes….remember what Michelangelo says:
