Claudia's Review: Geek Fan Expo Convention

September 5th, 2014 thru the 7th, there was a convention called Geek Fan Expo.  This convention was held at a Double Trees in Dearborn, off of Ford Road just west of M39, the Southfield Expressway.  I attended two of the three days. 

Kodak Moments #23

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 have been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is at a IHop in Hollywood.

1991 Coming Out of Their Shells Tour Chicago

It was 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going strong around the world, from the movies, toys, cartoons, and the live concert was still going around the country.  This was a smaller show that was edited down from the original “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”.  They came to Michigan to do a show.  I was staying at my aunt’s during that time and was not able to convince anyone to take me to the show, since I saw the full show back in October.  I was crushed. I wanted to see it alive again so badly.  Disappointed that I missed the show, the only thing I got was a poster that was badly beaten left hanging in a store on their pinboard.

1991 Turtles at School

Every year for my birthday back when I was in elementary school, my mom would bring cupcakes for the full class.  Though only one of those times did it really stand out as it was during the best school year of my life.  I’ve already shared how I was bullied in school.  Well, in the sixth grade my mom moved me to another school, sadly I was only in this school for one year, Harding Elementary, with my teacher Mr. Aspinwall.

Review: Sea Life

Mall of America has many great things, and we have been covering the "Nickelodeon Universe" theme park a lot lately because of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock ride.  Though while at the Mall of America, we got to explore some of the other great things they have to offer.  One of those was “Sea Life,” the aquarium inside Mall of America.

Review: Nickelodeon Universe Rides

 Mall of America, one of our great tourist attractions is a huge mall with a lot of stores and even a theme park in the middle of the mall.  Originally the theme park was “Camp Snoopy” though a few years ago that park was changed into Nickelodeon Universe.  A nice size indoor theme park with rides for people of all ages.

A World Record Event

On the morning of March 17th, 2012, I went to Mall of America with my youngest daughter, Michele, and two friends, Fugitoid and Tokka.  We woke early to get ready for this event for there was going to be a gathering at the mall to break the Guinness World Records, and we did.

Once we arrived, there a line already starting to form.  Probably 50 or more people had arrived before us.  To me time went fast.  I enjoyed seeing so many young families, many already dressed in some kind of Ninja Turtles type outfits.

Review: TMNT Shell Shock Grand Opening!

On March 17th, 2012, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans crowded into Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America to help break a World Record of people dressed up like Ninja Turtles.  For a few months now, we have been promoting that the Cowabunga Corner Crew will be at this event and we were, in full force.  With help from friends Fugitoid, Tokka, TurtleNinja, Draco and my mother, Claudia, we had people throughout the crowd to help cover this amazing story in video, photos and written reviews.
