Halloweentown

Rick Baker's Bride giclee print here.
I've been in L.A. for a couple of days now, catching up with the 'rents and failing to connect with old friends (though meeting new ones has been cool!). While running around yesterday I made a stop over at Halloweentown in Burbank to check out the Tribute to Classic Monsters art show.

Holy cow! It's fantastic! All of the artwork done was wonderful, and I was enormously impressed by the amount of artistic talent gathered under one roof.

It turned out I was extra lucky in my timing, as there was a life-size sculpture of the Bride and the Monster, sitting on a settee, in the very front of the store. The artist had sold it, and came to break it down and deliver it to the buyer later that afternoon, so I was happy I showed up in the morning rather than putting the visit off to the afternoon. It was so beautifully done, I swear I expected to see a pulse in their throats!

By the way, I know it was gone by afternoon because I dragged my dad over to see it then!

If you live anywhere near Burbank, and you don't go see this free show, you lose your horror fan card. Forever!

  1. Wait, was it Mike Hill's Bride and Monster from October's Monsterpalooza? That was incredible work. I want to know who had the space in their house to buy it!
