MONSTER FANS queue-up --
-- at the Marriott Convention Center!
SON of MonsterPalooza
Returned to Burbank, CA
September 16th-through-18th
~ 2016! ~
And -- lurking under the trees in
the Marriott's Outdoor Quad --
(The G&C Hearse -- was waiting!)   (Friday Evening's 'Will Call' Line...)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
arrives, and sets-up to Meet the Monsters...!
...Cart Mascot 'Carlotta' webs-us-in
just in time for a creepy little breeze...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
Before long, "Frankenthumbs" gives us a lively
shout-out! (well, a deathly-groan-out, really...)
"The Bride" arrives to taste a piece of The
Cart's irresistible Pumpkin Pie Taffy...!
(Everybody loved that 'gauzy-little-number'
she was 'stitched-into'...)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
The real Jennifer Rubin, star of
"Nightmare on Elm Street 3"
graciously paused to pose with The Cart...!
(The not-real) "Joel & Tom Servo"
of Mystery Science Theatre 3000
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
Our Good Fiend, the nefarious Noel Jason Scott,
in another menacingly-'mesmerizing' apparance...!
of his Previous Chillingly-Chaney-esque
Manifestations (well, 2-out-of-3, anyway),
at previous Pie Cart appearances*...!
(Bud and Lou are big fans!)

Would YOU buy a Pumpkin from This Man...?  
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
These out-of-towners paused to say "Hi!" --
-- on their way to watch the Costume Contest...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
was ready to hit the hotel pool, but had
a little trouble with his "bikini"...
"They Lounge!"
Roadkill we approve of, played with
(literally) staggering attitude...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
Fans were gaga over
"Lady Jason", and the
"Freddy", who really
knew how to 'cut it'
with the crowd!
A closer look at the tortured texture of Freddy's 'friends' --
Truly amazing prosthetics detail, eh?
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
It took a while for this
"Body Builder" to get every-
thing all Worked-Out --
-- but Lou thought his visit to
The Cart was definitely
worth the Weight...!
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
looked a might Blue (like somewhere
he'd lost a screw), and, after killing his
mad maker, just didn't know what
to do...
The Pumpkins were anything but
Blue, when "Ayela"came by,
sporting her'double-charms'...
(or whatever-the-heck
those 'Things' are.
(Um, those Things on
her head, we mean)...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
This ghastly,
danced into Cart Mascot Bud's
pounding little pulpy-heart,
with her eerily-etherial
(Even now, she haunts us...
Really. Eeek.)
And, 'ere long, our 'umble Cart
was honored by an Audience
with "His Royal Heinous"
(who appropriately seemed to be
rotting-from-within, and we
don't mean metaphorically),
literally festering with
archly-arrogant Attitude...
(The Cart's Mascot King Cobra, "Elvis",
whissspered a note of kindred empathy.)
(Did you catch that Sly look of Utter Distain...? Oooo.)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
Our Good Fiend, "R.I.P. the Undertaker" again
lent his "festively-expectant" presence to the scene...
(He'll return later, with "A Little Friend"...)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
'Not-Ape' "Astronaut Taylor",
(in a spiffy uniform that ain't gonna
last long in the 'Forbidden Zone').
These "Kannibal Kids" had just
come from the Snack Bar
(fortunately with left-overs, so we knew they
weren't still hungry...).
"Fatal Cloris"
took a stab at serving-up a sanguine
stew of fluffy terror...!
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
An "Ice Wizard" cooly wandered by, pointedly posing
for this Frosty Portrait with a weirdly-wintery glare...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
This "Thorny Gal's" sharp wits didn't
get in the way of her looking grape!
Good Fiend and MakeUp Effects Guru Rob Burman
sharing a philosophical moment with this "Horny Guy"...
While "Howard the Duck" slyly-clucked,
'Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar'...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
"R.I.P. the Undertaker returned, with -- "Mini R.I.P."(!),
to enjoy a bewitching moment with Miss Novak and Pyewacket...
(We rather suspect 'parthenogenesis'...)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
A 'little bird' told Ol'
"Top Hat & Tusks"
to visit The Cart in his
subtle-SteamPunk best...
...where this like-hatted
"White Rabbit" also soon
(Lou, in b.g.,
was really hoping she'd like to
'make a little time', but she was late
for a date, and had to hop -away
-- not easy in those shoes...)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
A gracious "Lady of the Sea"
shared a truly-cerulean greeting!
This hip-notic "Aquatic Alien" was
up-to-the-gills with telepathic 'tude...
Later, a soggy "Lotus-Lover" made
a real splash in Rope & Tails...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
"The Magee Twins"
hobbled by, pausing for a moment to offer a touching smile,
and we were glad to see that their latest Operation went well...
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
VERY well-armed
"Colonial Marines"
landed at The Cart,
ready to deploy some
real pretty s**t,
we can tell you!
Killer Cosplay by
The Infamous Duane
and Sin Twisted...!
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
In primitively-prominent head-dress,
a "Black-Trained Enchantress"
arrived in fatally-fascinating,
...While "RIP" looked to have
been ROLLED (and then
some!) -- possibly by his
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
Only a glimpse of the Costume Contest!
(So much more to be seen there...)
Awesome Kit, man, truly...
This 'four-eyed' "Alien Girl" seems to have
lost her Flying Saucer -- oh wait, here it is -- !
-- crashed(!) into "Alice In Wonderland",
(along with Teacup & Kettle too!)... Yikes...
  (Poor Alice might've fared better, had she
been wearing "This Guy's", um, 'hat'...)
(Page Top)   (Mail, Patch Swag, & Links)
Oh, Ya' Better Watch Out...'
Reminding us that those 'Other'
Holidays are also on the way, this
"Axe-weilding Psycho Santa"
could be comin' down YOUR chimney
And good luck to him --if
"Zombie Girl" here is what's
waiting for him under The Tree...
(We suggest you LET her HAVE the MILK & COOKIES, Kris -- it might keep YOU off the Menu...!)
