I attended HorrorHound weekend this past weekend in Cincinnati OH at the Sharonville Convention Center.
of all let me say that the picture above is what you see as you come
around a large hill in KY. That sight of the Cincinnati skyline still
makes me excited. I love Cincinnati, it's a gorgeous city and the
skyline is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Secondly, THANK
GOODNESS we had our tickets purchased in advance as well as buying the
early entry tickets. The show sold out on Saturday and Sunday.
main reason that we went was to see the members of the cast of the
Walking Dead that were going to be there. I am a huge fan of the show
The Walking Dead. Let me also say that I don't do zombie flicks. I have
watched them but it wasn't like I was a huge fan of them. I used to
think they were dumb. I still think they are a little dumb but that's
cause I try and find all the reasons that zombie take overs wont happen.
You know that rotting flesh in the nasty Louisville heat among other
things. Other than that.. okay lets roll with it...
started off in the vendor room and I saw these little cuties and nearly
squealed! I love dolls... a leftover from my little girl days and these
were just the most awesome I'd seen in awhile.
Little demon baby and vampire baby. They also had zombie babies too. They were so adorable!!!
then decided it might be a good idea to get in line for our photo op
with Norman Reedus. Good thing we did because man o man was it insane!!
We waited almost two hours for our photos with him. We got our photo
with him and then proceeded to go out and roam around the vendors room
once more. When I get the digital download of the Reedus pic I swear I
will post it here.
Among the other cool
things was this awesome pumpkin dude. He has a show on Youtube as well
as a Facebook page but I am having trouble finding it. When I do I will
share it here on the blog. He was funny and his handler even gave me a
rainbow lei... so I got Lei'd by the Pumpkin dude.!
was an absolute MESS. They oversold the convention and I think they had
NO idea the turnout that bringing in the cast from the Walking Dead
would bring. They had to stop letting people in for awhile and when we
left at 2pm there were STILL people waiting outside. I was lucky enough
to get some shots of Chandler Riggs who plays Carl on The Walking Dead
so the day wasn't a total waste
was THE day!!! We stood in line to meet Jon Bernthall who played Shane
on the Walking Dead. While we were there I was able to snap pictures of
Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), Sarah Wayne Cailles (Laurie) as well as
Scott Wilson (Herschel) when he came in to talk to Jon!! I'm going to
overload you with a BUNCH of pics now, so enjoy!!!
Yep, that's me with Jon.
There were three people taking pics of me with
him. When we finished he said. "Just like being on the damn red
carpet!" He was super nice (all of them that we talked to were) and I am
soo happy that we got to go. After meeting Jon, we went upstairs to the
vendor room and wandered a bit more, that was when I saw THESE!!!!
Yes.. that is a baby werewolf doll!!!
I want one of these little
buggers so badly but I heard the woman who makes them say she had a
years worth of orders and they are priced a little steep for me $500
BUT... BUT they are so freaking CUTE!!!! I still want one!!!
in all we had a great weekend but I will say it was one of the most
POORLY planned and ran conventions I have ever been to. They had NO
schedules, NO maps, no one knew where anything was and they obviously
oversold the show and never kept track of how many tickets they sold.
Volunteers didn't know what was going on and people at the registration
desk knew very little about anything. We actually left early on Saturday
because it was so overcrowded.
I did have
an awesome vacation, some much needed rest and our hotel was AWESOME!!
Much props to the management and employees of the Residence Inn in West
Chester Ohio. I couldn't ask for a better hotel experience and they were
some of the nicest warmest folks I've ever met. They also served a
Going to have some guest blogs this week (That I forgot from last week) as well as some new things to share!!!
Til Next Time...............
