Who doesn’t love Halloween? If you just said you didn’t, then shame on you and you need to leave now. Yes, that time of the year when all of the ghosts, goblins and slutty nurses come out to play. And this year if you live in Los Angeles, you were able to attend the ScareLA Convention and honor and celebrate everything Halloween! Continue reading
It’s no secret that Halloween is my favorite time of the year. So don’t you wish that there was an annual convention that would spotlight the haunted holiday with a 2-day celebration filled with all of the tricks and treats that come with it? Good news! Well, good news if you live in Los Angeles! (sorry everyone else). Yes, the first annual ScareLA 2-day convention is happening this weekend August 10th and 11th in downtown LA and it’s the perfect way to kick off the Halloween season.
Now, we’re not just talking about carving pumpkins here (although there will be festivities involving that). All of the best local haunted attraction developers and experts will be on hand to answer your questions and give you a taste of what’s to come at their attractions this year! Speaking of which, there will be onsite haunt experiences as well, so you might want to bring a change of pants just in case.
In addition to all of that, there will be: live professional makeup demos, hands-on workshops, food trucks, performances by local theatre entertainers, celebrities like Sid Haig, and even a happy hour so you can have a drink! Sounds good, huh? Head over to ScareLA.Com for more info on getting tickets, convention times, and directions. Now who’s ready to get in the Halloween spirit?
Great news for you horror fans in Los Angeles: the Days Of The Dead horror convention is coming April 5th-7th! Started in 2011, this convention will be making it’s LA debut and they’re pulling out all the stops. Do you want to see a House Of A 1000 Corpses 10 year reunion? You can! Do you want to meet the women of the original Evil Dead on the weekend that the new Evil Dead hits theaters? You can! Do you want to tell Traci Lords about how you fantasized about her as a teenager? You can do that too! But that’s all mere child’s play compared to the reunion that I’m excited to see and I’m sure a lot of other attendees are as well: Rowdy Roddy Piper and Keith David will be there for a They Live reunion!
If you didn’t blow your load over that announcement, then I’ll give you the fast-talking Micro Machines guy rundown of some of the other guests who will be attending throughout the weekend: William Forsythe (The Devil’s Rejects), Tom Sizemore (The Relic), a People Under The Stairs reunion, Amelia Kinkade (Night Of The Demons), Oliver Robins (Poltergeist), Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Heather Langenkamp and other Nightmare On Elm Street girls, and more, more, more!
Now if you don’t live in LA, then I’m sorry for rubbing it in. But if you live in Indianapolis, Chicago, or Atlanta, then I have good news for you, because the convention will be coming your way over the next few months! Head over to the website HERE and check out the info and head HERE to purchase tickets for the LA dates. Stay tuned for a review on my experience at the convention and whether or not I profess my love to Traci Lords or one of the Evil Dead girls.
