Mad Monster Party brought Charlotte a religious experience

As March came to an end, and people’s Easter plans began to solidify like a hard-boiled egg, Mad Monster Party brought a bit of undead-zealots of its own. From a post-crucifix Jesus, to Easter bunny roadkill, to the sassy blood-guts-and-gore of the Mad Monster Beauty Pageant; this party pulled out all of the stops. Kevin McGee and Daniel Coston were our eyes and ears at the event, providing the images below.

Along with the visual pizzazz, the panels and guest-signings were a huge draw for attendees.

One of the leading men of the entire event, Scott Homewood, declared that this year’s attendance was great, including more people who were in costume! “we are always looking at more interesting people to bring different kinds of experiences and aspects — we can’t wait till next year I hope everyone else has excited about coming next year as we are about putting it together.”
