Glad those who joined us ahd a blast! As for Scarlet, she was doing a lot of photo shoots and promotions during the show as well. As you can see she's in high demand
And now a note from my boss, Count Kaufman:
People of Crypticon!
Wow, 2009 was definitely our best year!
My partners my wife Imogene and Chazz DeMoss want to give thanks to everyone involved to help make this year our first successful year.
First of all some may not know this but my mom, 3 sisters and cousin all run the registration desk and couldn't do this without them.
I have to thank Don of the Dead and Jess for all there hard work on facebook, myspace, the forum's and Twitter.
Also there hospitality room was great and the chili went over huge.
Mark, Darcy and Jeff of Little Salem also had a great hospitality room with a awesome coffin cake and horror trivia for all challengers.
My sponsors were a big part again: Chateau Grrr, Monster Ink, Halloween Funshop and the Sheraton.
Christians Corpse head workshop and Mark L's makeup demo went over great. I missed so many of the events do to show responsibilities but heard that the Burlesque show, all the indie films, most of the Q & A's and bands went smooth and were highly entertaining. Chazz did an amazing job keeping all the bands on schedule and want to thank all that helped him get the equipment to make it happen. Jerry and Greg did another standup job in the movie room and helping run the Q & A's.
I wish I could have attended the celebrity dinner, the Cryptkicker of Chateau Grrr and all that attended were raving about the food and fun.
I did get to be at the 2nd annual costume contest (because I was helping run it) and was awed by the great competition. What great variety and imagination.
Emily and Jeremy staff photographers worked hard to get some great shot's and we will have them up on the website soon.
Watch the website for updates. My drivers were a big help to: thanks Don, Jess and Jeff.
Not to be forgotten the hotel the Sheraton was a big part of the success and will be a big part of the future.
Yes I said future. For the 1st time I walked away from the show and said to myself and partners that for sure there will be a next year!
Thanks again to all involved and all the fans who attended,
Nick "count" Kaufman
Hey Don, thanks for the update! Any word on getting more t-shirts for this year? There was three of us that came in around 11 on Saturday. When heading out around 5 they were all gone. To say the least we were rather bummed! These shirts make for great conversation starters. Who do we have to kill, mame, or eat to get one?
Who is Boo Crew on Church Street?
Boo Crew does an amazing "home" LOL haunt in a residential area of San Jose every year thanks to the hard work of volunteers. I say home in quotes as it's pretty much not like most home haunts you've ever seen with towering facades and a fabulous walk thru...
