One more video gem before we close the place up. Some of you may have even attended this event.

Of course I was there, co-hosting that big mask/prop exhibit at 12:32 - 13:06.
A couple of renowned doctors were in the house as well, Ackula and Lady ~



Thanks again for all these fun vids, Symbi ... may I call you Symbi?

That was yours? What an incredible display! Nice to see that the great Dr. Lady was also present.

Symbi....You know what? Symbi it is.

Love the pics Maskahuna, especially with all of those Halloween Society pieces in the background.  Particularly love the bust of Peter Lorre.  Looks like it was such a fun time.  Wish I had a time machine to go back and visit at the show.

Great to see you back on the HMA, Huna! With a treasure trove of pics, no less! That convention must have been one incredible experience. It's so funny to see Nikolas Schreck among the attendees, knowing who he would become. Did you bump into David Smith during the event? I know he was there representing Stroke of Midnight.

Great post 'huna. Love the Tarman mask! Also great pics of some genre luminaries like Bob Burns, Tom Savini and William Stout. And great pic of Nikolas Schreck looking his Schreckiest

Thanks for sharing these photos with us! They are awesome and capture the mood of the 80s horror scene perfectly! Wish I could go back in time and relive it again!

Man, David Smith has one of the most distinctly recognizable styles in the mask world. Easily in my top 3. Great pic, Huna! Though I'm puzzled by the background appearance of those Hulkamania bumper stickers.
