The first day of Shock Stock went astonishingly well for me despite fighting Michigan Construction traffic and a number of mishaps along the way,the least of which, picking up my son late from school. We arrived late, found parking VERY easily (5$ at the Hall, not bad really) and entered the Convention which was in full swing. We met the vendors,cosplayers and a number of Celebrity guests that had a lot to say about my niece’s homemade Disney dress. Particularly Tony Todd, who would’ve pegged him for a Disney fan? Oh well, even Death needs a hobby!
The vendors were wonderful and there was some amazing artwork to be viewed as well as one-of-a-kind baubles and earrings. Pictures will be forthcoming, as I seem to have lost a vital power cord to upload but they’re wonderful, and there’s absolutely a lot to see. I encountered the Horror-Rama booth and a booth run by Canada’s best Horror FIlm Festival, “Blood in the Snow” Nothing brings out my patriotic side like good ol’ Canadian Horror. I think Canada really has a corner in the market and need to show our American neighbors that The Great White North is just as bawdy, bloody and psychotic as the rest of them. I was also very glad to see independant filmmakers showing their talent and films. There’s screenings happening all weekend. I can only hope my camera batteries last that long! Shock Stock continues tomorrow through till Sunday, at Centennial Hall,London Ontario. Forest City, the Horror fans have teken over!!
