I popped my cherry guys!!!! –
I JUST GOT BACK!!!
This show was my first ever. I learned soooo much and saw so many awesome things. There was one vendor showing animatronics, everyone else was showing masks, prosthetics, makeup, paint, things of that nature. It was busy in my opinion. It took about 45 minutes to see all of the vendors just to walking time. When I stopped to talk to them I spent about an hour at one booth just talking to the guy. He was explaining everything about his silicone masks. He let me try one on it was so awesome. I took a video and I'll post it on youtube and put a link on here. These things were beautiful! The prosthetics were cool. They seeming pretty standard nothing mind blowing. Dapper Caddaver was there OHHHHHH!!! I saw his props and the body parts they looked great! I had always wanted to see them in person and now I have. OH Sid Haig was there. I think thats how you spell his name. The clown guy from House of a 1000 corpses. He is pretty mellow from what I saw. Very animated. I didn't have the money to get his autograph on a picture but It was cool just to meet him. I also met Eric Fox from FaceOff. That dude is so chill. I wanted to pick his brain but he had a huge line waiting to take pictures with him. Butch Dihary was there from ContoursFX and I had registered for a class to take with him but I missed it because of family issues but I'll look for that oppurtunity again. His work is soo amazing. He had a little booth you can see is artwork, it was so amazing!
You know I had a great time. I learned so much. And as far as marketing it they did a great job. Remember Larry, LA is a big place, we like Halloween stuff too. We can have our own haunt convention. Besides you never want to come play with use you just want to stay in St. Louis.
I loved it, it taught me so much, and it won't be my last. GOD I CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED!!! WOOHOO!
Its A Verbal Orgy on Steroids!
