Horror Con – May 19th

I wanna tell you guys about the second convention that I went to! And this one was pretty scary but so awesome!

Me and my boyfriend James and our friend Dave went to Horror Con, I had originally dressed up as Black Widow from Marvel but I didn’t keep the costume on as It got too warm. James dressed up as Creepshow Father’s day and Dave dressed up as Sam from Trick or Treat.

We met a lot of awesome people, the costumes that we saw were just amazing and some of them were super scary! 😉

I also met some great authors such as Peter Laws and Alistair Wilkinson. I highly recommend getting their books.

Peter Laws new book The Frighteners is amazing and I suggest getting a copy!

Alistair Wilkinson’s book is amazing too! He has a book series called Stella; The Zombie Killer. I must have walked around the stalls many times before I brought the books because I was very tempted to buy them as I love zombies due to The Walking Dead so I knew I had to get these books.

I also had all the books signed by the authors and I’m already on chapter 2 of The Frighteners and it’s really addictive, it’s funny and it’s brilliant so much so I said to Peter that I’m going to buy all of his books on my next pay day as I love his writing.

Now I have something even more awesome to show you and I will post their social media in case you wanted to buy these epic artwork that I’m about to show you! 😀

These are my favourite and I will be buying more soon! If you want to by any of Al Reid’s artwork then check out his social media links that I’ve posted below.

We also brought a mystery box that had 13 horror films in them and they are;

  • The Exorcist
  • Cat People
  • Bela Lugosi The Ape Man
  • The Craft
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
  • Night of the Living Dead
  • Army of the Dead
  • The Descent
  • Saw IIV Extreme Edition
  • The Last Witch Hunter
  • Scary Movie 3
  • The Vell
  • CloverField
  • Friday the 13th

and this box of mystery horror films were only £10 a box! I wish I had got another box, I’ve got some majorly horror binge watching to do! 😛 I also got 2 bags of mystery shirts only because James and Dave got a leatherface shirt and I wanted one too! The leatherface shirt is amazing!

I also brought an IT keyring and two other keyrings and I brought a small OUIJA necklace and I love it! I love necklaces and I haven’t taken the OUIJA one off since I got it. James got me a blue moon necklace and I haven’t taken that one off yet either.

In all the 3 of us had a great day and was really exhausted when we went home, Dave fell asleep in the car and I fell asleep shortly after him.

Thank you to everyone and the authors and artists that I met for making it the best first Horror Convention ever! I’m totally going to start going to more conventions!
