A Trip to Son of Monsterpalooza and Spookshow

Recently, we went to a couple of horror-themed shows and conventions in the LA area.

 

The first was Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank.  This was a first for both of us.  The kiddo and I have never been to a horror-themed convention before.  I enjoyed this show a lot.  I was impressed with the celebrity meet and greets offered by the show.  Furthermore, the celebrities are at their tables and you just walk up and chat, get autographs and photos.  No lines, no lotteries, no fuss.

I made a couple of nice purchases on the floor.  This purse from Rock Rebel and this cat dress by Kreepsville 666.  Click on links to peruse their sites.

 

The second show was Spookshow at Halloween Club in Orange County.  This show was an outside horror-themed flea market in their parking lot and the huge Halloween Store had almost everything marked down.

This show had free admission, which was nice, but there were far fewer vendors and the store was pretty junky and crowded.

Here are some photos from the show floor and the lot at Spookshow.

 

I did get these sunnies at the show, but the vendor doesn’t have a website for you to check out, unfortunately.

But, most importantly, me and the kiddo had a lovely day out, which is why we do what we do!

Outfit of the Day: Creature From the Black Lagoon Dress

Our latest outfit of the day is my new Creature From the Black Lagoon from Unique Vintage.  There is also a men’s button-down shirt version, but unfortunately Benji’s is on backorder so we can’t show it to you in this post.

The dress and shirt are made from a super soft stretch taffeta.  The print on the fabric is super bright and really beautiful.

Taffeta holds its shape really well, so I actually did not even wear a petticoat with the dress in these photos.  I wore it to Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, and the day was pretty warm, so I was grateful to leave the crinoline at home!

I also was lucky enough to pick up the classic monster handbag in the photos from Rock Rebel at Son of Monsterpalooza.

Lastly, a quick bonus look is this cute cat pinafore from Kreepsville 666.

Wardrobe Solutions: Classic Chucks

When putting together pretty much any outfit, my go-to is a classic pair of Chucks.

Besides being super comfy, they come in every conceivable color and style.  I even found a camo pair for my nephew once!

Chucks can be dressed way up or way down.  They go with a ton of styles, vintage, bobby soxer, rockabilly, goth and modern casual styles.  You can start wearing Chucks from toddler age and keep up wearing them right up to your golden years.
