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

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.

    Outstanding! Man, wish I had been there. I would have loved to see the ZBrush booth!

    That is so cool. Too bad there’s nothing really like that out here in Chicago. You with the baby head is probably the scariest thing.

    Love the Cobra-haired Medusa and the Gourd Guy (Killer Compost?), but if the ears get any higher on the were-wolves, they are going to become were-rabbits.

    I’d swear that those were photos of the real Baker, Naughton, Karloff, and Pierce. Amazingly realistic displays!

    By the way, you with the giant baby head mask just became my new monitor wallpaper. I can’t wait for my wife to see it the next time she starts up the computer. :D

    Incredible! Thanks so much for posting, Mr. Eaves!

    Not really a fan of horror film, except for the classic monster movies, or if they are Sci-fi. IE John Carpenter’s “The Thing” and Alien.

    Some very cool stuff there.

    You wearing the gaint baby mask reminds me of Blaster from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

    It is very difficult to choose a fave with so many cool things there. I thinkg my best favourite is the Boris Karloff statue!!! Really impressive!. I’ve been a fan of that movie for decades now and it’s really fun to see Boris Karloff ready to shot in slippers. LOL!!!
    Thanks for posting this stuff

      the picture don’t do the sculpture justice!!!! Yeah the Mummy is a favorite of mine too.

      • April 17, 2012 at 4:08 pm

        So much niftiness everywhere but Wowsie-Wow-Wow-Wow, that Jack Pierce and Boris Karloff sculpture really knocked me out. Wow. Amazing amazing work. They looked like they were ready to come ot life (and I wish they would!)

        Thanks for sharing all the goodness, John! I’m sorry I wasn’t there, but I wouldn’t have a penny to my name if I had been!

  12. April 17, 2012 at 7:53 am

    Bah! So jealous, it looks like it was completely amazing. Those sculptures are some of the most incredible things I’ve seen in a while, they’re absolutely spectacular. Hopefully there’s something closer to Texas in the near future!

    This is right up my alley. I am going to get a vendor table here and show my paintings and t-shirts. I was planning on finishing up my monster art projects and this is perfect motivation!

    Love “The Ring” piece. I would put that in my wardrobe!

    I like the Al Lewis painting. In the mid-70s I got to meet Al when he showed up to talk to our acting class. The best moment came after his lecture, and he was hungry. So we went to the campus commissary and half a dozen of us listened for over an hour to his stories of working on the Munsters, Car 54, and Phil Silvers. A really down to earth guy with no show-biz pretentiousness and a wicked sense of humor.

  16. May 21, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    None of them scared me till I saw Michael Jackson. Then I almost threw up.
