For as much as I love horror, I don't get to nearly as many horror conventions as I'd like, especially ones that have creative, gory-sounding names. Yet if you live in the Virginia Beach area and have some time to kill this weekend, you might want to go to Blood at the Beach III, a horror convention that's being held at the Norfolk Hotel and Conference Center from May 10th to the 12th.
Its bikini-bloodbath name aside, Blood at the Beach III sounds like it will be a fun event with a great selection of guests, including a Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood cast reunion. The convention will even have an official "Virginia Beach Zombie Walk" this Friday evening as part of the festivities.

I also wanted to mention that among the attending vendors will be our own sell-made monster maker Georgette Gaynor, who will be selling her creations at Blood at the Beach III. (Click here, here and here to see examples of her work in previous posts). Her monsters will be selling between $60-$125, many at the low range and with up to $30 less if you don't want to include the monster's base and iron support pole. If you're at the event, feel free to stop by Gaynor's table to say hi.
Blood at the Beach III ... not to be confused with Blood Beach.
