Crypticon 2015 (A Review By The Fans)

Welcome to the Darkside...

Crypticon is annual conversion dedicated to horror, kinda like Comic con but darker. Kansas City, Missouri has held Crypticon for the past 5 years now. 3 Days of madness with Celebrity Guests, Vendors, Q&As, Panels, Indie Films, Costume Contest, Toys, Art, and Clothing.

2015 Celebrity Guests

it's not your normal convention! Everywhere you go they have gore, horror, and just plain awesomeness. We were lucky enough to get a room at the con hotel for the weekend and let me just say it was a non stop party. The third floor of the hotel had rooms doing movie screenings, VIP parties, and people just mingling in the hall. In the convention hall they had booths selling clothing, art, oddities, and more. They had one booth selling hot sauce and I must say it was the best I've ever had. The celebrities were spread throughout the convention floor and all of them this year were so great with fans. The convention floor, held in the main hall, was kind of cramped at times because of the numbers during the day Saturday but it was still pretty easy to get through all the booths and vendors. They had make-up artists doing face painting, gore make-up, and special effects make-up. They also had a tattoo booth there doing tattoos, I had to stay away otherwise I would have left with a lot of them! Outside the hall in the parking lot they had the main stage set up and did a lot of different acts such as sideshow acts, comedians, and bands playing through the night. Also in the parking lot they had specialty cars from your favorite movies. Saturday night they held a costume contest for everyone in costume. I am going to say my favorite part of this convention was all the costumes. You had your everyday horror like Freddy, Jason, and such but then you were able to see Predators, members of Umbrella Corp, and so many more creative costumes. I'm my opinion this is a convention that everyone must check out me that one time will keep you coming back for more! This Crypticon was very special to me because Saturday night my fiancé and I were married on the main stage by a Ghostbuster. After our wedding another couple came up and asked to be married as well. It was a wonderful event. I can't wait until next year. -Jess Jones

It was an amazing event. The celebrity guest were down to earth and enjoyed their time with the fans. Everything ran smoothly and my family had a great time.  -Joe DiGusto

I work for Crypticon, every year gets better and better. The guests, the music, the fans.... each year the numbers double. I'm honored to be part of such an amazing show. -Jason Geddis
