Chiller Theatre: October 2022

On the Halloween weekend of October 29, 2022, it was time for another trip to Chiller Theatre! This was honestly one of the most amazing guest lists they have had in years. In fact, it might rank among their best ever! What was also cool, and, in turn more fun, was it was the biggest group of us at the con in years. As three of my friends, Freddie, Alan, and Nelson (in his awesome version of Jack Skelington look!), joined me for the kick ass good times!

The first person I went up to was the lovely and awesome Heather Matarazzo. I was really excited to meet her. I consider her Elizabeth Bathory inspired death scene in Eli Roth's Hostel II to be one of the coolest gore scenes of the 2000s. I mentioned to her how much I loved the Shudder documentary mini-series, Queer for Fear, of which she was one of the celebs that were interviewed on it. She was very sweet and all smiles throughout.

The gorgeous Judie Aronson, of Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, American Ninja, Weird Science, and more was up next for me. She's still absolutely breathtaking in person! And, not only is she a total stunner but a sweetheart, too. She was very friendly and talkative as she told us about The Sleeping Car, a movie she was in that she would love to get streaming or some kind of release. I mentioned Vinegar Syndrome, as it felt like something that might they like to put out. I was also sure to let her know that she was one of the people I was most looking forward to meeting that weekend, and that I had a huge crush on her as a kid. 

After that I went up to the lovely Robin Frates who played Megan Gallagher in the first Puppet Master. She had the best deal at the con, at $30 for a combo (IE pic and autograph) at the show. Not only that but she was very sweet and all smiles, as she did a couple of pics with me. This was cause my phone wouldn't focus, at first. She also really liked the cover to the Blu-ray trilogy set, that I had her sign.

One person, we were all excited to meet was legendary actress and classic beauty Olivia (Romeo and Juliet, Black Christmas) Hussey. Black Christmas is one of my personal favorite movies, one I love more and more with the passing of time. She is so important to the genre, being one of the first final girls of the genre. Yet, she is so humble in person. She also told me that she liked the patches on my jacket, especially Elvira. And, asked me about the skull on it, as she has a shirt of it. But, you see, she didn't know what it was. I told her its the Punisher, to which she replied that it sounded scary. I explained to her, that he was not horror, but that he is instead a Marvel hero/ vigilante. 

The last person that I went up to was another of the people that I was most excited to meet, the gorgeous Terry Farrell of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth, and more. She is absolute stunner in person, and so tall, at 6'0"! She was also awesome as fuck, as I told her that she was the person I most looked forward to meeting having loved her in Hellraiser III and Stark Trek: DS9. She was very flattered by my comments and was just a blast to talk. She said that she sent Pinhead to hell and should have come back. To which I wholeheartedly agreed, cause she did and should have! Seriously, she rocks and was a great celeb for to close off the day with.

We didn't stay for the party this time around, but we had an absolute fucking blast. We already can't wait till the next one in April!

Here is what I bought at Chiller:
Since I got Screem (limited edition Count Yorga cover) magazine, I got for free a Blu-ray copy of Battle of the Worlds
And, from Vinegar Syndrome I got: The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman (in 4K, a brand new release from them).

I have never seen either movie and really look forward to watching Werewolf, in particular, as I am just getting into Paul Naschy movies (finally!). The only movie I have ever seen from him is The Yeti Vs. the Werewolf, which was fun. Just a week or so ago I ordered and got the first of Scream Factory's The Paul Naschy Collection Blu-ray set. Any fans of his reading this? And, if so, what movies of his do you like/ recommend? 

Finally there are the autographs that I got:
Terry Farrell: Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box
Robin Frates: Puppet Master: The Blu-ray Collection
Judie Aronson: Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

Did any of guys go to Chiller? If so who did you meet? What were the highlights for you? Let me know in the comments section below. 


New York Comic Con 2022: Friday

Friday, October 7, 2022, at New York Comic Con had me debuting the first of my two new cosplays: Obi Wan Kenobi. This was my first time, doing a true Star Wars cosplay. As while, I had done Darth Vader at Chiller in 2015, it was just a thrown together costume, and not a full blown cosplay. At least, that's how I feel. Anyway, the first thing on my schedule was the Chucky panel (the only panel I was able to get/ had lined up to attend). But, before hand, I had to battle the Darth Vader bride! I LOVE this cosplay, by the way!

Anyway, the Chucky panel was great. A bunch of the cast and crew was there and they answered some fun questions and played some cool clips and videos. Panels were the only place the mask mandate was enforced. If someone didn't have a mask on, they handed one to them. That being there were a few inside who still didn't wear one, cause wearing a mask is so difficult isn't it?! 

Here are some of my favorite cosplays that I saw that day:

These two were dancing up a storm and having a genuinely fun time. As well, as attracting a crowd of their own.

While, I had a great time, on all of Friday, the honest to God highlight of the day (and certainly one of the top highlights of the entire con) was this following interaction. I saw this awesome cosplay of a Batman Returns Catwoman. Someone was taking her pic, and I asked her if I could take one next. She said sure, but when she looked up and saw my Obi Wan cosplay, she asked if she could take one with me! I answered of course! I felt so vey flattered, that it felt like that was the right thing to end the day with.

I'll end this post with a pic of me in said cosplay, before I put on my robe and headed to Comic Con earlier this day.

Next up, fun times on what is usually the biggest day at Comic Con: Saturday! Note, that I said usually...

But, before that be sure to click on the bottom link and see what happened on Thursday!

New York Comic Con 2022: Thursday

This past Thursday, October 6, 2022, marked the first full capacity New York Comic Con (NYCC) since 2019. As, you might remember last year's was a scaled back version due to COVID. While, the website and their social media stated that masks were mandatory at this one, it wasn't enforced, except in panels (more on that in a later installment). I did wear mine, throughout the con cause, I wanted to play it safe. And, honestly it's just a fucking mask, and I have zero desire to get sick . 

Anyways, this was the first year, I decided to cosplay all four days, something I plan to do from here on in at Comic Con. I also debuted two new cosplays, which you will see in the next installments of my Comic Con coverage. But, for the first day I cosplayed as the Avengers: Infinity War Captain America, once again.

As this was the least, comparatively, crowded day, I got to do most of my shopping. And, of course, I got to look at more booths. Here are a few highlights:

The Playmobil booth had some really fun toys displayed.

I am really loving the product that HandMade by Robots are doing:

Finally, we got Super7, easily the booth I spent the most at this year:

And, now here are just some of my favorite cosplays and other cool sights from this first day:

Here is what I actually bought on this day:
From TeeTurtle: a con exclusive Seal of Disapproval shirt
From HandMade by Robots: a limited edition Jack Skelington glow in the dark vinyl figure
From Super7: a glow in the dark Muckman and Joe Eyeball Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimate action figure (I also bought a glow in the dark Reaction figure of Mothra, but she sold out. So, they're sending her to me in the mail. Keep your eyes on my Instagram and Twitter for when I receive her, as I'll definitely post pics.)
And, a Funko Pop of Eagly from Peacemaker. The guy at booth hiked that Captain America was buying an American eagle Pop. To which we both said "'Merica fuck yeah!" 

Be sure to come back and follow for all my reports on the next couple of days, as I have a bunch of fun pics and stories to share!
