View Full Version : Halloween and Party Expo Report

We arrived at the expo at 9:30 thinking like most people there it was open or would be by 10am but it opened at 11am which is really weird. I felt rushed the whole day to get my orders in the one day we were there.

The Halloween and costume section was much larger than the past two years and the party side has shrunk to just a few isles.

Things of note was a new mask company can't think of the name right now I am sure Allen will remember. Very cool stuff including zombie pets. The owner said he has been in the industry for years but finally transitioned to his own line.

There was a new steampunk line which was really cool. Also got to see Ed's new fright tronics animated charecters and chucks new bump in the night masks.

I have to say this was the best year so far for the Houston show. Attendence was light but the floor was big enough to were we had to power walk and I could not get all orders in.

Gotcha Halloween concepts! was the name of the company that Grimley could not remember, they were pretty cool.
I have the requested pics and will upload them tomorrow on this thread. There was some neat stuff for sure it was good to see GHoulish designs who told me they will be at TW this year.
Pitini enterprises was the company I was trying to find and the reason I went there. they have a great $30 skeleton 60" tall and no minimum order! great looking skeleton and blows everything away for the money (even double the money in my opinion).
I will add pics tomorrow.

the stay puff was an inflateable prop, not a costume.

Not to bud in but if you're looking for a stay puff costume I believe www.kylepasciutti.com has a "how to" on making one for free or he can make one for you. They look pretty cool. :)

Back to the halloween show! Lol sorry for that.
