Lexington Comic Con: Saturday

Lexington Comic Con is an up and coming convention that has been growing yearly for the last few years. It originally started out as an idea as a Power Rangers convention for the creator’s son, though it developed into something more. While it brings in a lot of Power Ranger guests, including those from the original Japanese version, Lexington Comic Con also brings in a multitude of other talent from movie stars to voice actors to comic artists. Lexington Comic Con works to entice the crowd in every way possible.

Returning to Midwest Media Expo 2015

 

The past few years Cowabunga Corner has been invited to different events.  Getting to share collection pieces, talk with fellow Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, and host panels.  One of those events really stood out, with how great the guests were treated, the variety of types of guests and events, and the mixture of panels that I got to take part in last year.  This was Midwest Media Expo, an event in Detroit Michigan meant for many different types of fandoms to come together as a community, for a fun weekend.  When they asked for me to return for 2015, I was happy to say yes.  Here’s a bit about  Midwest Media Expo.

Review: Starbucks Coffee Tasting 2015

Photo taken by Michele Ivey at Starbucks Tasting eventI often say that I like to try anything once as long as it won’t hurt me or anyone around me.  At the same time I have a really fussy taste bud.  Growing up there’s many things that I don’t like, which most of my friends enjoy from nuts, chicken to tomatoes.  If I don’t enjoy a food I do try to avoid it, ordering only things I know I’ll enjoy.  Coffee is one of those things I really do not like, I don’t know why but from smell to taste this daily drink is just something I never found myself enjoying.  So this may be found as a strange story for all of my friends, as I cover a Starbucks Coffee tasting event.
