Win a Family 4-Pack of Tickets to Granite State Comicon 2019

Granite State Comicon

I am very excited to say that my family will be hosted guests at Granite State Comicon 2019. I have not been to this event since the very first one way back when it started in 2003. The Granite State Comicon was created by two friends of mine from college, brothers Chris and Scott Proulx and their friend Brett Parker. The con has grown and I have wanted to go back for several years now. It just hasn’t worked out. But this year I was asked if I wanted to attend and to help promote the show. I’d certainly do anything to help out these guys. Part of that is running this giveaway and coordinating with other bloggers to put on giveaways of their own.

This year is a big year for TMNT fans. It is the 35th anniversary and there will be a bunch of very special things happening at the con for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles including voice talent from the shows and many artists and even Kevin Eastman! I am thrilled about that!

Both of the kids are going to cosplay at the show. They have each created their own unique characters and on one of the days Eva will go as Luna Lovegood. I cannot wait to see how they do at the show, it is going to be so much fun. If you would like to join us on Sunday please enter to win passes through the Rafflecopter app below.

Happy 10th Sweet Suite!

Happy 10th Sweet Suite
Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00205

Today was the 10th Sweet Suite. I was there as one of the Toy Insider parents. It was a fun night filled with great toys. But first I had some other things to do.

My friend Becky was able to get us time at YouTube Space NYC. We were able to record there for 4 hours prior to the start of Sweet Suite. Before that we had to grab some food.

Japanese Inspired Tacos

We had lunch at a Japanese inspired taco place called Takumi Taco and the tacos were amazing. I especially liked the nacho chips that they had as well. I loved the roasted corn slaw that they had as a side also. That was inspired.

The Doughnuttery

We picked up some dessert before we went up to YouTube Space NYC. I picked up some tiny donuts from the Doughnuttery. They had this little machine that made and fried the doughnuts. Then it flipped them into a bin. Next they put them in bags and shook them with sugar. They were great for showing at the table at the diner. We were in the diner scene at YouTube Space. Which brings me to …

At YouTube Space NYC

You Tube Space NYC was very cool. We went in and picked up some equipment including the biggest tripod I’ve ever seen, and that was the smallest one. We set up three cameras and proceeded to create 4 videos. There were two for each of our channels. We have to have them approved before they can be seen but they will be coming.

With Cosplayers Getting Coffee

When we got to Sweet Suite we were right up at the front of the line and we got in and were able to see the Cosplayers Getting Coffee group. There were a bunch of them there and the majority were Marvel characters. I did not get nearly enough photos with them either. Becky and I walked all around Sweet Suite for the next five hours and saw so many people and tons of great toys! I will have a ton to unbox in the coming months.
