Underground Monster Carnival Review

SAM_2691

This year we actually attended as vendors and there was a lot more activity at the Undergound Monster Carnival! We attended with our Dark Steampunk personas, as The Dark Ministries. We also had two new members attending, who did a wonderful job, and were officially added to the crew roster. We all had a blast! There was lots of creepy things floating around, including an evil easter bunny, creepy dolls, and the Oklahoma Legend Count Gregore! I’d have to say that it was a highlight for me (Ren Asthea) to get a hearty hug and nice photo with Count Gregore! There was also men roaming around in giant monster costumes and many cool things to gawk at.

Carnival Epsilon, out of Tulsa, did their thing and everyone seemed to quite enjoy it. Who wouldn’t like stapling money to a man’s back? You just shouldn’t have a carnival without a freak show, so this was a very nice touch to the event! And, of course, everyone loved little Cotterpin. He was hamming it up and I fell for those cute doggy eyes too.

The attending patrons had great costumes and they were a very interesting bunch of people. Dr. Strauss and I (Ren) took Dickie the Kraken around to get photos with a bunch of people. People seemed to love the soft fabric and cotton candy aroma that we made Dickie with. There were plenty of jokes and laughter going around! We even ran into a few local steampunk  community friends, Kit (dress up as Mystique),  Jackson, and Vanessa (Custom Club Cuff) – it was great seeing you guys again! We really enjoyed ourselves and hope to do it again next year!
