Marble City Comicon - part 2

Ok, so things took a lot longer than expected to get posted.  We had a few road blocks over the past few months (job changes, kids, etc.), the worst of which was a hard-drive meltdown.  But, now that we have gotten past all of that, we finally got our coverage from Marble City Comicon posted.

Joining together with Tim and Daniel from Mass Listeria podcast (masslisteriapodcast.com), we here at New Monster Project had another amazing time at Marble City Comicon!!  We hope that you have as much fun watching our coverage as we had at the con!!

Marble City Comicon 2015 - part 1

Another convention has come and gone - and once again, New Monster was there to cover the awesomeness!  Joining together with the guys from Mass Listeria, we made the trek back up to Knoxville, TN to cover Marble City Comicon for the second year in a row.  As always, there were some awesome artists, great guests and vendors, and some really original cosplay (including the most adorable Hit Girl that has ever been)!

We are still working on the video coverage and will have that posted as soon as we can.  But, for now, enjoy some of the pictures we took (and we took quite a few).  If you see yourself in any of the photos (the camera loves ya, darlin'!), let us know and we will be sure to tag you in them.

Eye of Yama-Con - 2014

Back at the beginning of December (5-7), we once again made the trek to Pigeon Forge for Yama-Con.  This was our third year covering the con, so we were pretty excited.  In fact, we even met a couple people who actually recognized us!  But this isn't about us...so, back to the con.  Yama-Con is, in large part, an anime convention.  But, that certainly is not all!  As it says on their website, Yama-Con is "an organization founded to celebrate everything nerd, geek, and otaku. [They] operate fully on a volunteer basis to bring our attendees events that are focused around all the entertainment they love, such as anime, manga, comics, video games, and more." Yama-Con was held at the LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge and the location was fantastic, with lots of space to hold all of the attendees and their amazing costumes!!

We are still working on putting together our video and we will have that up as soon as we are able.  But for now, here are some of the pictures we took.  So, stare into the eye of Yama-Con (or, in this case, I guess it's more of the lens of Yama-Con??)  and behold the amazing costumes!!




And even more great costumes at the cosplay contest!




As always, the fans are part of what make Yama-Con, and every con, so freaking great!  I know we had a blast, and I hope you did too!  If you see yourself in any of the photos, please let us know and we will be sure to tag you in them!  We hope to see you there next year!

CONjuration Con 2014 - part two

A couple months ago, we went down to Atlanta for CONjuration Con and we had a blast!!  We posted the pictures shortly after the con and had the video finished a few weeks ago, but we all got pretty wrapped up in the Christmas season and weren't able to make any posts for a while.  But, now that the last of the egg nog has been consumed, the decorations have been packed away, and the tree has been thrown to the curb, it's time to get back to work.

First up - finally posting the CONjuration Con 2014 video!!  We had an amazing time at CONjuration and cannot wait til next year!  Hopefully you have as much fun watching the video as we had making it.


Again, thank you so much to everyone who took the time to talk to us and let us interview and photograph you!  As with any con, the fans are part of what makes the event so awesome!
