Son of Monsterpalooza
The dead walk at Son of Monsterpalooza, but they might not be the scariest thing. After all, they're only signing autographs. Along with costumed creatures and their victims from decades' worth of horror and monster films, the massive convention brings into the light the makeup artists, costume designers, movie directors, and screenplay writers who came up with this stuff—and what could be scarier than a consortium of such disturbed minds? Guests, too, are encouraged to come wearing costumes, which they can enhance at a huge vendor bazaar.
