Midsummer Scream 2017

It is 75 days until Halloween and what better way to celebrate the coming season than with my coverage and reflection of my attendance at the Halloween festival I attended at the Long Beach Convention Center on the last weekend of July?




Midsummer Scream was all I could have hoped and more. You’ll have to watch the video for the majority of my feelings on it, but I can most definitely guarantee that we will be returning next year.

With what few photos you see here, you can see I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Of course I cannot forget about the shopping. Below are some of the treats I discovered and came home with.

MSS Enamel Pins & Planchette from Fiendies

Halloween Pagoda Parasol/Umbrella from Hilary’s Vanity

Mister Jinx’s Halloween Hootenany Special comic issue & Enamel Pins from Drew Rausch’s One Stop Spooky Shop.

Here Be Monsters print & Christmas Spider Holiday Cards from Bill Rude

There were so many outstanding spooktacular vendors, it was very hard not to run around like a mad woman spending all my money, but I did my best to grab cards instead to save for another day.

Until next year, Midsummer Scream!
