Transworld had a lot of awesome stuff like usual this year. Lots of cool big animations and cool props. But my favorite thing that I saw this year was that hopping octopus from Frightprops. I don't know why but I thought that thing was really cool. Seems kind of like an odd favorite but what can I say?

I went to their website to see that. It looks hilarious, but might be scary in the dark. Did anyone see the Oak Island Hallucination? How did it look?

We are working on improving our characters and scene details this year so we spent a lot on those items. We really didn't buy anything big yet but who knows.

The Distortions electric chair guy was pretty cool. That was even scaring haunters. Wow!!!
Also, the Scarefactory Grim Reaper guy was impressive as well as the wolves.
We bought the ugly bird from Gore Galore.
Ghost Ride had some cool characters again.
I still have that song in my head from Creative Visions..Thanks Mark and Dan. :)
It was nice to see Lafond FX back with their new Mossology line. Great stuff too.

A lot of new faces and new companies.

I have to say my favorite was the wolves from Scare Factory. Of course that giant Angel of Death was awesome but I don't know where I could make room for him or have the funds.

I have to be honest. Everyone that came out that thing felt the same way i did. Its not scary its uncomfortable. I think i found one person that would put it in there haunt.UNLESS you can have an emergency exit all along the way. The ceiling pushes you down to about 3 or 4' from the ground. aND IF the people in front arent moving it sucks! I think you have too many pissed off people that would not come back because of that alone.
Just my opinion.

Some of my favorites:
Distortions Squish-o-matic - that actress probably hated me for pushing the button so much. LOL

The octopus was fun to watch. Cute.

I was in awe of Scarefactory's display. Like a kid in a candy store. Very impressive.

Loved Gore Galore's costumes.

LaFond FX display was great.

I liked the Buried Alive/Claustrophobia attraction. I like the Claust. 1
& 2, as making me uncomfortable is much easier than scaring me.

Spookywood's costumes were innovative and it was great to see everyone interacting with them.

The impaled heads from Creative Visions were fun, too. (Though if I have to hear Elvis farting to the dueling banjos anymore, my head may explode. LOL)

These were just a few of my faves. I was new to TW this year, so it was quite overwhelming to take it all in.

Shane from Graystone! Now my speech I want to thank my manager, Larry and the dead beat vendors that have given us all a major ass raping.
