I'm not into the celebrity thing. It doesn't seem there was a crowd in Dallas in 2005 at celebrity row. Like 5 or 6 celebrities with their picture behind them sitting at tables visiting with each other. With only 500 people in attendance, maybe 25 people really care for about 10 minutes each?
Over a whole weekend. It looked so sad for them to have been gotten into this. Latter there had been "problems" with celebrity demands before, after and during the event to where I can see hesitation to confirm any of them. There is always some busy schedule or something? But the contract says they get money anyhow? Or had a deposit and dont' give it back?
I could be a celebrity!
I saw a small black child with a bedazzled shirt proclaiming her to be a "local celebrity" she did not have any pictures of herself for $5 or $40.
Somewhere I read that Robert Englund gets $20,000 per appearance? This can't be right. Who does he think he is Freddy Kruger or something? I like him but not this much.
I can't help but think of how car shows are advertised, See a bay watch star and the Batmobile! Get your pictures taken with a skinny guy in a cheap Batman Costume! I have always walked past the famous models or TV star and wondered why. Perhaps it is the other way around, they are there not for the fans but to gain some fans?
It really doesn't totally fit the haunt culture but, I guess it make it sound like it really an upscale event? As upscale as a car show? Maybe they should put mirrors under the seminar speakers or put demos on big turn tables. Have a bail of chipped wood and guess which haunted house this used to be?
I have to agree that even if the signage and schedule are totally different in the real world than what was planned it is still a nice event. But, I think HauntCon's real strength is that it gathers a region of people that already know of each other as apposed to traveling across the country to be there. Some people do travel?
