You will be able to see cool art from Mike Winland, Chris Woodall, Lee Harrah, Melanie Larch and myself and many other of the area’s top artists. The show is one night only and runs from 6 to 10 PM.

This year ShockaCon itself moves to the Beni Kedem Shrine, right next to the Charleston Civic Center. There are tons of great guests, including Fred Williamson, C. Thomas Howell and Erika Elaniak and Michonne’s pets from The Walking Dead. Plus there will be vendors and live music from The Renfields, the Big Bad and The Jasons, and a performance by The Wayward Girls School of Burlesque. In addition to that there will be panels and seminars and a costume parade from The Charleston Town Center. Details are in the promo clip at the top of this post. Last year’s Halloween shows, shot during ShockaCon, are below.
