Since C2E2 we've been pretty busy. Joshua and Steve met Dan Aykroyd in Chicago.

Image

And Joshua and Steve built a proton pack.

Image

Andy bought a '65 Caddy.

Image

Joshua, Steve, and Andy "investigated" the burial site of Ed Gein in Plainfield, WI.

Image

Joshua and Steve attended WausaubiCon and Joshua hosted a panel on adding lights to props.

Image

Andy, Joshua, Steven, and Vee met two new 'busters at Cyphan III who joined the WI GB's, Derek and Troy. Then we all presented Ernie Hudson with a plaque as an honorary member of the Wisconsin Ghostbusters.

Image

Also at Cyphan, we battled Gozer.

Image

Vee unveiled her secret project at Cyphan as well, the "Ghost Puncher."

Image

I've never seen so much khacki in one place.

Image

We met our newest member, Jesse, at Wizard World: Chicago Comic Con.

Image

And it's not GB related, but I got to meet Sean Patrick Flanery from The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones series.

On September 8, Derek, Joshua, and Troy attended Geek.kon in Madison. Joshua won another award during the masquerade.

Image

In other news, Vee continues to create awesome artwork.

Image

And the work on the Caddy has been slow, but I'm getting stuff done. I'll be able to do more when I'm not as busy during the late fall/winter months.

Image

And last, but not least, check out our new website. Thanks to Joshua for all the hard work.

It's been a while, so here's a bit of an update.

On October 20th, we hosted the Books and Busters event at the Waterford Public Library.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then, on October 30th, Josh and I went to Winona, Minnesota to help Doug with his Books and Busters event with comic artist Erik Burnham .

Image

Image

Image

Of course, then there was Halloween. We all went our own way and did our own thing. :D

Work on the Ecto has been slow (unfortunately), but there has been some progress over the past couple of months.

Image

And our last event was Daisho Con the weekend of November 16th. Oh man, was that ever fun!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

If you've noticed some new people popping up in our photos recently it's because we've had a surge in membership since the summer. Joining Andy, Vee, Joe, Josh, Tim, and Steve in the adventures of the Wisconsin Ghostbusters are Derek, Troy, Jesse, and Doug (it was a hostile takeover of the MRVGB lol). Jason, we haven't forgot about you. Come visit sometime!!!

We had two panels at Daisho Con. This was our "Are You Smarter Than A Ghostbuster?" game.



And Josh, Joe, and Steve entered the cosplay contest with this skit.

I have just found your post that is to be disregarded....did not disregard.

Hello my fellow forgotten Spartans of the frozen Tundra. (Try saying that ten times over.... I dare you... no I double-dog dare you!)

Anyway I'm the man known as Ratz, and though I have always wanted to jump into this past time we call, "the busting of ghosts", it wasn't until recently that I lost my job and saw that the Ghost Busters were hiring.... (Or at least I felt it would be fun to start something new.)

So with that being said... Hello Wisconsin! And GOD I hope it get warmer soon!

Cheers!

Hello everybody! This guy joined the WIGB's a few months back, looks like there's been a bit of activity since this thread has been updated.

I'll find a way to get some photos on here in the near future... but Andy is doing most of the work.

Hey, nice to see you on GBfans, Keith!

I'm back with another update! We had a bit of a lull from Daisho Con in November until Anime Milwaukee in February, but Vee created some more awesome artwork for us during that time.

Image

Anime Milwaukee 02-16-13

Image

Image

Then in March some of us got together in Green Bay to take a tour of Lambeau Field - in full gear, of course!

Image

Image

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day with the Midwestern Ghostbusters Coalition by participating in the Dowtown Chicago parade.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

On April 12th Josh and Bruce helped Joe put together a fundraiser with his 7th grade class for an end-of-the-year field trip.

Image

Image

Work on the Ecto has been pretty much at a standstill since October, but it's been a good time to collect equipment.

Image

Upcoming events include C2E2 in Chicago and Free Comic Book Day in Madison.

Hey folks!

Haven't seen much activity around here. So I figure I'll bug you guys to see how many of the Wisconsin bunch made the trip to C2E2.

Any feedback?

Good stories or pics?

Cheers!

I personally couldn't make it, darned prior engagements.

I think for Wizard World there's going to be a few of us on Thursday/Friday, me and only 1-2 others will be in gear on Saturday.

Short update.

On April 27, a few of us made it to C2E2 in Chicago.

Image
Image
Image

And then on May 4 (May the Fourth Be With You) we attended Free Comic Book Day at Westfield Comics in Madison.

Image
Image
Image

At FCBD we presented Bruce with an Honorary Membership plaque for all the amazing work he's done with our props.

Remember that time we walked around Michigan Avenue at 1 am with a dozen other ghostbusters and felt like goddamn superstars?

Hey, remember that time I neglected to update this thread for 6 months?!

In May, Josh and I went to ACen.
Image

There was a bit of a lull in action until August when we were invited to attend Ocomicon.
Image

After Wizard World Chicago, the crew got some awesome shots downtown with John Dart Photography.
Image

Also in August, we were invited to the Time Community Theater in Oshkosh for a screening of Ghostbusters.
Image

In September, Jesse and I recruited Dan and his sons at the Books & Busters event in Algoma.
Image

We had another Books & Busters event in Waterford in October.
Image

On Halloween weekend we spent some time at Westfield Comics for ComicFest.
Image

We visited the "Ghostbuster House" in Bayview.
Image

Joe, Derek, and Steph did an amazing job at the Plaza Theater in Burlington with an interactive screening of Ghostbusters.
Image


Saturday night we hung out in downtown Milwaukee.
Image

Vee and I had a good time at the Misery Haunted House in Little Chute on Sunday.
Image

I also have photos from the Fall Fest event that Derek and I attended in Waterford, but I don't have permission to post them... yet. So look for that in the next update, which hopefully won't take me 6 months to post. lol

Mark, I just noticed that I called you Keith in an earlier post. Sorry about that.

On to the update. Here's a couple of pics from the Washington-Caldwell School Fall Fest event last October. The "official" photographer won't give us permission to use his photos, therefore some of them have the "proof" watermark, unfortunately.
Image
Image

In November the WI GB Ecto made its debut at Daisho Con in Wisconsin Dells.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

We had some fun at the con itself, too.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

We have a running joke in our group about blaming Joe for everything that goes wrong, so we made pins because why not?
Image
Image

Old cars bring with them old problems. Ecto needed some assistance getting home.
Image
Image

One of our members moved to Oregon a while back so we decided to make him an honorary member of the group.
Image

And last weekend we attended Anime Milwaukee. Pictures in this set were also taken at the Milwaukee County Historical Society and The Pfister Hotel.
