Classic monsters at the L. A. County Fair?
« on: May 14, 2022, 08:38:18 AM »
Ordinarily our fair comes to town in late summer, closer to Halloween.
For whatever reason, they've rescheduled it for mid spring. Even so,
there were enough masks everywhere to keep ol' Sir Masksalot interested.
This tribute to Carnevale was in the Floral/Garden pavilion >

One of the vendors had a column of face masks for sale, made in Mexico.
I thought they were cast in rubber but, at first touch, realized they were
rigid fiberglass >


The best fair scares were waiting for me inside one of the big Fairplex buildings.

They had giant scary inflatables, a zombie-themed shooting gallery, pumpkin patch
and graveyard for photo opps, an inter-active fun zone for youngsters, and my favorite:
a walkthrough museum celebrating movie monsters >

'No barricades to hold us back. You could get up close to all the full-sized figures
and pose for pics >



I was especially impressed with the backdrops. Hard to see in the darkened space,
they took on a dimensional aspect by flash >


I had to get two shots of Dracula, with and without flash >


For fans of more contemporary horrors, the most fearsome foursome were there in gory glory >



The fair is now running through month's end, Thursday to Sunday only, at the fairgrounds in Pomona CA.
If you're nearby, make the trip lest evil befall you!

More than a couple Trick Or Treat Studios put to use in that cast of characters. Cool display. 8)

I love the Mummy Case. I have one like it. I use it to store DVDs and VHS tapes. The door is to shallow to hold DVDs, but VHS tapes fit there just fine, as long as they're not  in clamshell cases.
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?
