Predators and Aliens were close enough to BITE...


Opening Friday Night in the Marriott Quad - "Anthony, The Walking Monster" takes a rare break among the 'non-monsters'...; but he's bright-footed and bristly-horned for a quick pic with some of Son of Monsterpalooza's outstanding Staff on Saturday Morning!

Quantum FX mindblowing menagerie was on major display...


Fans fill the Convention Center,
Show Programs in hand...

And speaking of the Show Program --
The Son of Monsterpalooza 2022 Program featured a near-full-page Q & A, showcasing "Crumpkin's Pumpkins"!, graciously shown-off by Del Howison, of the legendary Dark Delicacies book and collectibles store in Beautiful Downtown Burbank...
Oscar-winning Ve Neil's "Addams Family" were a Creepy, Kooky delight!
"Now fortified with Extra Irony for better Blood-Sugar!" - The Best Little Horror House's appetite-challenging line of "Cereal Killers"...
Still hungry...?
One good look at Propnomicon's "Cycloptopus" should cure that.

Beetlejuice's crainially-challenged "Harry the Hunter" seems to have escaped The Waiting Room...

Fabulous Figurines were to be found everywhere...
Hey, That's It!, from Immortal Masks Killer Klowns (in the Quad's outer space)...
Live-in-progress Tour-de-force Make Up FX...!

"The Prowling Pumpkin"
The rather scary Entry Line went On...,
And On..., and On...
...But -- once the Pasadena Convention Center doors were opened, it moved surprisingly fast...
There was Outstanding Classic Monster Artwork for sale...
There were Monsters-in-the-Making!

It, um, does seem that "ears" were rather a recurring motif --

-- eh what...?
There were Miniature Maiden Models ~


~ and Full-sized Mounted Monsters!

Plus Tiny Larry Talbots --



-- with telling traumatic tribulations...

(Little Larry looked a bit un-glued, and we could understand why...)

Legendary Make Up Effects Wizard
Rob Burman
conjures up a new character vision right in the midst of mezmerized Monsterpalooza-goers...
At least the ears look normal here, yes... ?


The late, great Forrest J. Ackerman, or at least a fantastastically realistic replica, was in proximity to Celebrated Company...

...Including other incredibly realistic, not-at-all-real people --
-- And astonishing personalities representing --

-- Both Sides of "The Pond".

(aka, Swamp)
Yes it was another great show, with world-class Artists, Vendors, countless creative displays -- and no shortage of "Monsters" at all...
What's 'The Buzz' as Autumn dies...?
(The Pumpkins know it isn't 'flies'...!)
Here's a fable for you, friend, whose villain meets a 'sticky end'...
