monsterpalooza April, 13th-15th, 2012

WOW!!!  What an incredible show this was!!! As much as I love Comicon and Wondercon, Monsterpalooza has become my new Favorite of the collector shows. The Palooza started Friday evening at 6:00 and went through the weekend. There were tons of incredible vendor booths, live make-up, airbrush, and mold making seminars, Movie and horror directors& stars, as well as a host of special make up FX artists.. Monsterpalooza has been an annual event but this year they are adding another show in October and again it will be in Burbank!!!! I’m booking this one as we speak. I took tons of pix from the show and they will speak volumes so enough chatter from me and lets go right into the show…

This is a painting of Grandpa from the "Munsters" painted by the incredible Daniel Horne. Dan had many pieces of his work at the show and I was blown away by his incredible talent and what a great subject manner to display his mastery of the media

I would die to have this kind of talent!!!

this was a beautiful yet disturbing piece depicting the life of a bunch of zombies

so many great creatures

this was a giant phone booth sized machine that when activated, opened up to a full animatronic character that would sing then try to blow you to pieces when you critiqued his lack of singing skills

AHHHH my favorite!! The Hyperflesh booth, home of the giant baby head masks!!!

My buddy Nelson and his fav piece of the show

a one eyed beauty

this artist sculpts in both practical media as well as Z brush and teaches classes on how to master the program

This young gal had the best outfit n make up!!! She was just a convention goer and was incredibly scary!!

This was my second favorite booth. "Werepups" They make and sell these adorable little furry werewolf puppies that look and move so lifelike you would swear they are real!!!

Here is a pic of the world famous Steven Chiodo!!!

This is Ed and Charlie Chiodo, combined with Steven, they are the Chiodo Brothers. These three incredibly talented artists have a studio in Burbank CA, and in 1988 they wrote and directed as well as made all the Klowns for the space epic "The Killer Klowns from Outer Space", and most recently they created all the puppets for Team America. Three great guys and always working on some very cool projects.
