Wild West Expo 2023

Nick and the Awesome in Action team were excited to return to Wicked West Expo at the Ranch Events Complex in Loveland on April 15th and 16th.

Olivia, Debbie and Nick manning the booth!

Nick had a booth featuring the opportunity to make your own superhero mask as well as offered a panel called Anyone Can Be a Hero about discovering your inner strengths and becoming a hero in your community.

Nick loved seeing everyone dressed up in costumes, and even wore some himself!

Nick loves dressing up for comic con!

Nick met some new friends, and enjoyed seeing some old ones including Power Ranger Anthony and Nick Armstrong.

Power Ranger Anthony is a young cosplayer that Nick met at last years Wicked West Expo, and Nick was impressed by his spirit and determination! Check out his website and instagram.

Power Ranger Anthony and Nick are a couple of cool dudes!

Nick Armstrong is a super cool guy who started Fort Collins Comic Con and is active in the Fort Collins community. He’s hosted TedX events in Fort Collins and ran for City Council!

Just a couple of Nicks!

Nick’s booth also had a photo station, and some awesome kids made some really cool masks!

Olivia is a little unsure!

Nick met some new friends, got some swag, and posed for some pictures, and overall had a blast at the event.

Nick calls this a “sheep,” what do you think?

Nick loves going to cons, and Wicked West Expo has been an amazing experience. He can’t wait for Fort Collins Comic Con on August 26th and 27th, where he will again host an interactive booth offering the chance to make a superhero mask, and host his Anyone Can be a Hero panel.

Fort Collins Comic Con – August 2022

Nick was lucky enough to be part of Fort Collins Comic Con at the Northside Aztlan Community Center as a vendor and panelist again this year!

Fort Collins Comic Con is one of Nick’s favorite events and he was so pleased to be back in person this year.

Nick’s favorite part of Comic Con are the costumes and cosplays. He gets a little anxious they might be scary, but has so much fun seeing everyone’s creativity.

Nick’s panel, Anyone Can Be a Hero, focuses on helping people find their inner strengths and super powers by focusing on what they are good at and how they make a difference in their community.

On Friday August 26th, Nick set up his booth, and Saturday and Sunday the con was on!

Nick’s booth featured a mask making station for people to create their super alter egos, and it was a huge success.

Nick made a lot of great community connections and shared information about Awesome in Action and his message with tons of people. He loved seeing the masks kids made to show their super hero alter egos.

Nick is so grateful to Fort Collins Comic Con, Nick Armstrong, and all the staff, volunteers, and other vendors who make the event so special. He can’t wait until next year!

What do you think Nick should dress up as at Fort Collins Comic Con 2023?
