Visiting the 2014 Monsterpalooza Museum

We have had many opportunities to attend great events and cons such as Amazing Arizona Comic Con, Phoenix Comicon, Tucson Comic Con, Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo, WonderCon, and of course San Diego Comic Con. We have also been fortunate to attend one day events to showcase Art Exhibits and others. Last weekend, we would attend Monsterpalooza for the first time and we are glad that we finally would! 

We have heard about Monsterpalooza for a couple of years now thanks to Sideshow Collectibles and other sites sharing their coverage of the event. We are huge fans of Horror films, the classic Universal Monsters, Sci-Fi, creatures, monsters, and special effects in movies. There was no reason why we needed to attend this show at least once. The line to get in was long and conversations were great talking about their favorite movies and guests who would be at the show this year. We would buy our tickets and finally enter Monsterpalooza where we immediately saw a big sign for Museum right at the entrance and this would be our first stop. 

We had no idea what to expect in entering the Monsterpalooza Museum, but this is what we would see immediately walking in. The details were incredible and seeing this first let us know that we probably had a lot to look forward to. 

There would be a tribute to one of our favorites Ray Harryhausen. Harryhausen was a genius in creating great characters in Mighty Joe Young, Jason and the Argonauts, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Clash of the Titans, and so much more. 

The art in this Sin City leather jacket was awesome. 

It is not much to hold our Walking Dead cravings, but thought it could help until October. 

The picture to this piece does not serve enough justice. The details and use of colors to make it look as it was glowing were quite impressive. 

Yo! Joe! Yes, this is a life-sized Gi Joe figure.

Who ya gonna call?

American Horror Story "Asylum" Pepper 

Bicycle Girl from The Walking Dead Season 1. Very iconic character that would help create a craze for the show.

Pennywise the Clown from It

The Monsterpalooza Museum was amazing! It definitely was a great way to start the show in seeing so many familiar characters and creatures from a few of our favorite horror films. The pictures can only tell so much compared in seeing the great details in these works first hand. It was just the beginning in what we would be amazed in seeing throughout the Monsterpalooza.
