Halloween convention season is really starting to ramp up with many more shows to come like ScareLA, ScareFest X, Fear Con, 2 different Monster-Mania cons and more! And this isn’t even counting all the upcoming great horror films festivals coming like Shriekfest, The Portland HP Lovecraft Film Festival, and the Twin Cities Horror Festival. This last weekend though, we got to present at and check out Midsummer Scream in Long Beach, CA.
AtmosFX was represented several ways at the show. There was the great setup of our 3dfx form and television mode decorations at The Haunt Store booth.
Our marketing manager ran panels on “What are Digital Decorations” and “The History of Halloween decorations” that were pretty full (and gave out prizes if you stayed until the end!)
We showed off our official Trick ‘r Treat digital decorations to start out the 10th Anniversary of Trick ‘r Treat presentation.
And we included AtmosFX products in the scavenger hunt prize pool and a discount code in our showbook ad. But the most fun was the chance to actually explore the show!
From meeting Bob Gurr, the designer of the doom buggies at the Haunted Mansion
To seeing Elvira again (we talked with her last year) and being interviewed by Drew Badger for the Big Scary Show podcast
To seeing so many great costumes
And scary displays and props
It was a lot of fun!
We even got play with kittens in the Black Cat Lounge from Los Angeles Kitten Rescue!
Midsummer Scream was a great time and if you missed it make sure to check it out next year! And don’t forget there are a lot of other horror and geek conventions coming up.
Watch for upcoming announcements of the next shows we will be at this year. We look forward to seeing you there!
