July 1, 2015 — It’s “big reveal week” here at ScareLA! You can skip ahead and see the lineup on our website here, or keep reading for compelling details.
For starters, we’re excited to return to one of our favorite topics, The Haunted Mansion, with a discussion about the ride’s legendary character, The Hatbox Ghost. On Saturday, August 8, join Tony Baxter (Former Vice President of Creative Development of Walt Disney Imagineering), fan favorite artists Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily, and moderator Doug Barnes from the Season Pass podcast as the discuss the origin of the legend, and why it took over 40 years for him to make it to the attic of Disneyland’s most famous house. For more spooky details read Theme Park Adventure’s announcement of the presentation here.
On Sunday, August 9, ScareLA has collected a lineup straight out of Springfield, as the writers behind The Simpson’s annual Halloween episodes, known as theTreehouse of Horrors, take the stage. Among those joining us are Jay Kogen (“Hungry Are the Damned” and “King Homer”) and Mike Scully (“The HΩmega Man”). More denizens to be announced soon, but Comic Book Guy is already proclaiming, “best panel ever!”
And on Saturday or Sunday (we’re still deciding!), the amazing makeup team that put the Horror in American Horror Story will pay a visit to ScareLA, discussing their favorite character creations over the past four seasons, and offering their own tips on how you can use their techniques for your own Halloween makeup and costumes.
All these, plus 91 Reasons Live!, a look at L.A.’s creepiest cemeteries, and more on the schedule.
