Another One Bites The Dust...

The 10th annual ScareFest convention was held the weekend of September 29-October 1 at the Lexington Convention Center in Lexington, Kentucky.  I must say I definitely was not disappointed.  FYI...ScareFest is a convention dedicated to horror films and the paranormal.  Stars from both movies and tv shows come to the convention to mingle with their fans.  One of the stars that comes almost every year is Kane Hodder, who is probably the most well-known actor who has played Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th movies, having played the role in 4 of the movies.  Another celebrity who comes every year is Chip Coffey, a medium who was on Paranormal State.

Each year on Friday night of the convention, a  VIP party is held for the stars and people who have bought the Platinum or Golden tickets.  This year it was held at the Manchester Music Hall.  On Saturday night, the annual costume contest followed by the Costume Ball is held in the Prefunction Area of the Convention Center.  The picture to your left was taken during this year's Costume Ball, and as you can tell, I was having a great time with the official ScareFest music spinner, The Rockstar DJ Tre aka Scott Fisher.

Besides Kane Hodder and Chip Coffey, some of the stars at this year's ScareFest included Robert Englund, Freddy Kruger of Nightmare on Elm Street, Danny Trejo from the Sling.tv commercials and Machete movies, Ghost Brothers, Tennessee Wraith Chasers, and Amy Bruni & Adam Berry of Kindred Spirits.

At the present time, I am in the process of getting my photographs ready to upload to my photography website, Sharry's Place.  As soon as they are uploaded, I will let you know.  Also, next year's ScareFest is already under way, so please visit their site for more info.
