How is it I never even heard of Crypticon MN?? This sucks.

I would go, but I am already scheduled for an even more horrifying day on the 6th.

Can we say "colonoscopy"?

Thanks again Don for a great event! I was a fan of Ernie Hudson as a child, even one of those lucky kids that got to make a homemade ghostbuster suit. Then when I moved out and was no longer censored from all the amazing stuff that makes up the Horror genre, I became a huge fan of Bill Mosely. Both were great to meet!

So keep these coming.

And PLEASE OFFER THIS YEARS T-SHIRT ON YOUR SITE. I was truly bummed out that I was unable to get one.

I attended today with high expectations.
The over all size of the convention was much smaller then I thought it would be. Was disappointed that Charles Band canceled but, these things happen. Very much enjoyed meeting the Celbs & talking with Ricou Browning (Creature from the Black Lagoon). Liked the two Q&A sessions (Ricou Browning, Linnea Quigley & Don Calfa - Return of the Living Dead). The Sideshow Vaudeville Burlesque Show & Creepy Costume Contest were fun too.

I suppose if i could give some constructive critisim. I believe there was more vendors this year than last year. It was also rather crowded in here. Would be nice to get a little bit of a bigger room for the next few years. Also inform miss Scarlet Salem that I would have bought an autograph if she would have spent more than 3 minutes in the 5 hours I was there on Saturday at her booth. And ORDER MORE T-SHIRTS! ;)

I sat in on the Q&A for Ernie Hudson and Bill Mosely this year. Both were great to listen to and it was truly amazing how the mood changed. Ernie was very positive, he had tons of cool stories. Then Bill Mosely got up there and the F bombs rolled. It really showed that even though a character is not the actor, that the actor still has a real life personality that goes along with the rolls they get.

Really?
I was there the entire day... met her in the morning, bought her dvd, both her & Joe autographed it. She & Ernie did go out to see the Ecto-1 GhostBusters car. Scarlet did change into a GhostBusters suit & posed in pics w/ Ernie & the GhostBusters. Actually I did talk to her later on at her table too. Maybe it was just bad timing?
