The inimitable “Russ Wrangler” arrived at my place around 1pm; all smiles and full of energy. Clad in sunglasses and sandals, he looked more prepared for a day at the beach as opposed to a horror convention but clearly the overall message was “vacation” and a welcomed one at that. We loaded my things and immediately embarked for Indianapolis with no lulls in conversation, making the drive go by much quicker.
This was my third Days of the Dead in Indianapolis (fourth overall) and Russ’ second. I remember attending the very first one while being impressed with how fan-friendly it was; something I’d hoped hadn’t changed. It seems like fan conventions of any kind start off slow and friendly and, should they find success, later become out-of-control Goliath’s with the fans getting lost somewhere in the mix.
Special thanks to John Bonior from “Scares that Care” for sharing these shots from last weekend’s event!
As summer comes to an end and Fall sets in, Halloween becomes the next big event on many calendars. It takes time and effort to choose and prepare the perfect costume for this legendary Fright Night. Whilst some pride themselves on top make-up skills, others will find a mask is the perfect finishing touch to their outfit.
Masks are no costume cop-out, in fact they have been used to disguise and entertain for thousands of years.
If you are a fan of horror hosts (and let’s be honest, if you weren’t would you be reading this?) then you want to tune in to WLIP AM 1050 every Sunday evening from 6 PM till 8 PM CST as Dr. Destruction now hosts his very own radio show that features on air interviews with many of your favorite hosts! As an added bonus Terror From Beyond The Daves’ very own Dave Fuentes will be in the studio as well offering his own brand of humor and expertise!
