Back in April, I drove up to Burbank once again for the spooktacular Monsterpalooza convention for a look at some of the finest work by makeup and sfx artists along with plenty o' vintage monster toys, masks and novelties. It was my second time checking out the event and it did not disappoint at all. As always, for those of you who were unable to attend, I've put together a huge photo gallery (14 pages worth!) so you can see some of the best of what went down at the show. Now that Halloween is right around the corner, I figure it's the perfect time for a look back at all the spooky goodness that took place at Monsterpalooza 2011.
