BUSY day for us that day... We normally have 3 comic book stores that we try to cover (Dicehead in Cleveland, TN, EPIKOS Comic in Ooltewah, TN, and Comic Hound in East Ridge, TN). THIS Year, we were hit up by 2 different places that really want us there. So in an effort to try some different avenues, we're going to be at the Chattanooga Library and then McKay's Used books before heading over to Carmike East Ridge for the Spider-Man costuming event. With that said, some people will still try to do the regular comic stores we've always done. First up is the Chattanooga Library. Here's a list of planned events there: 11:30-12:30 - Asami Nakano, Japanese Outreach Coordinator for UTC is teaching Japanese Calligraphy to Tweens/Teens 12:30 - 2:30 - Chattooine! WOOT! WOOT! Free the Hero challenge (frozen ninjas must be rescued...) Create a Cape (Upcycle an adult sized t-shirt you bring into a cape!) Make a Mask (embellish precut masks with markers, sticker and yarn) CPL Science Lair (Volunteer acts as a mad scientist and performs an exothermic reaction for the crowd, then signs kids up for our Summer @ the Library Game.) Comic Cover Photo Booth (pose behind a giant comic book cover to appear you are in a comic!) Costume Contest (which they want us to be judges) 2:30 - 3:30 Intro to Drawing Comics Class with Jeff Lamm 3:30-4:30 - Intro to Drawing Manga Class with Aimee Golden! There will be places for folks to change, water and they'll have the popcorn machine cranking out salty delicious snacks. At 2:30pm, we'll leave the library and head over to McKay's Used books. Still waiting to hear back what they have planned, but apparently they moved it all back to coincide with our appearance there. I believe anyone that costumes up will get store credit of some kind. Last year, I stopped by on the way home from Dicehead and they gave away $5 store credit vouchers. They'll also probably have a costume contest of some kind. Once we're done there (I'd assume we'll try and do 2 hours there), we'll regroup back at the Carmike East Ridge theater to get ready for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 event. Any MARVEL costumes are cool for this one. We normally try to be ready by 7pm but with all that's going on, some people may get there a little later. Anyway, if anyone is interested in doing any of this stuff, feel free to PM me and I'll get you added to the roster.
