The folks over at Midsummer Scream are on a roll as they have announced this week that Larry Bones and his team from Bone Yard Effects will be joining the Halloween Festival this July in Long Beach.
Per the press release from Midsummer Scream: “Bone Yard Effects will turn a host of volunteers into savage creatures that will roam the show floor and Hall of Shadows during this summer’s Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival held July 30 – 31 at the Long Beach Convention Center. Bones will oversee the transformation of dozens of volunteers throughout the weekend to populate the entire Midsummer Scream venue, from the ominous Hall of Shadows to the vendor/exhibitor show floor and beyond. For the past 10 years, Larry has overseen the makeup needs for Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights.”
From what we have learned, the theme for Bone Yard Effect’s photo op will be “Alice In Terrorland.”
“We are thrilled to have Larry as a creative partner,” said Claire Dunlap, Associate Producer of Midsummer Scream.
David Naughton, best known for his starring role in An American Werewolf in London as David Kessler, will be a special guest at their booth and will be available for autographs throughout the entire weekend.
“We don’t go out of our way to bring celebrities to the show floor,” said Johanna Atilano, Producer of Midsummer Scream. “However, anyone who’s had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Naughton will tell you, he truly enjoys meeting fans and interacts with people sincerely, which is something the team felt would be a fantastic addition to the Bone Yard space on the show floor.!”
According to Midsummer Scream- “Individuals interested in becoming Midsummer Scream monsters at the hands of Larry and his team should contact him directly at Larry@BoneYardFX.com immediately. Please note that only those with haunt experience will be eligible for this opportunity and will be screened by Bone Yard Effects. Volunteers selected will be admitted free of charge to Midsummer Scream, and will need to be able to work in character for the duration of the day they wish to participate.”
With the addition of Bone Yard Effects to the mix, Midsummer Scream is going to be the premier event for all things Halloween, horror, and haunts this year. Halloween and horror fanatics can hardly wait for July to arrive!
