Review: 2021’s Los Angeles Comic Con!

Another convention! Woohoo! Take that, Omicron! But anyway – yes, conventions do get me a wee bit excited. And this past weekend I was lucky enough to attend Los Angeles Comic Con again. Now, I am more partial to horror conventions – but what makes Los Angeles Comic Con so amazing is that it is out of my comfort zone a little, and I absolutely LOVE seeing all of the inventive cosplaying. But fear not fellow horror lovers! There was still plenty of horror-themed vendors, cosplayers, and celebrities. The almighty Bruce Campbell counts as a horror celebrity, right?

Not Bruce Campbell.

Speaking of Bruce, he did a fun Q&A session on the main stage – where we all learned that he hates candy corn and he also let us know that his Evil Dead character Ash will NEVER be returning in any form in the future (sad trombone sound effect). In addition to Mr. Campbell – there were tons of panels throughout the day (Boy Meets World, anyone?) and TONS of aforementioned cosplaying (especially towards the middle of the day).

I didn’t make it to the gaming rooms unfortunately, or get to sit in the super fun Star Trek chairs. And my only other regret was not realizing there were food trucks and booze outside until it was a bit too late (more sad trombone sound effects). All in all, Los Angeles Comic Con was a blast and I can’t wait to see what they do next year! Perhaps I’ll do my own cosplay and go as superstar wrestler Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine or something.

Also not Bruce Campbell.

‘Son Of Monsterpalooza’ Coming Back To Burbank On October 8-10!!

Finally!! Finally we are getting somewhat back to normal and horror conventions are popping back up, and hopefully haunted houses for Halloween aren’t far off. And there is no bigger horror convention this year, than the gore-ious spectacle that is Son Of Monsterpalooza! And it’s all going down in Burbank, California on October 8-10.

Now….not much has been revealed so far about special guests, but I can tell you that Elvira herself Cassandra Peterson will be there! As well as Nick Castle (Halloween) and Tobin Bell (Saw). More guests, panels, and events will be announced in the next few months – but for now just know that you’ll see a ton of ghoulish vendors, amazing make-up artists, and spooky special exhibits. And don’t forget to dress up! (It will be the month of Halloween, after all)

Go grab your tickets and/or make some hotel reservations HERE, and I will scare you there!
