Seeing the content from the 2007 Full Moon Horror Convention & Film Festival was such a kick. It brought back loads of great memories. I was so inspired I decided to look for and successfully found a bunch of photos I had taken when I attended . A group of us and driven from NYC to Little Rock, Arkansas. It was my first time in that city and state. There we were dressed in our best horror film attire, ghoulish makeup and jewelry. I was wearing one of my signature studded choker necklaces. Jump ahead a decade later and I still wear choker collar necklaces, but my fashion direction has now move to a more refined, but still quirky sensibility. My earlier chokers were all punk Goth. My most recent choker purchases have been made from zippers. Or as the descriptive on the website where I buy them says, "Re-purposed zippers with chain links to create the sublime of refined edge and elegance." My newest favorite is a zipper lariat choker collar necklace, in silver that can be worn as headpiece, belt or necklace: knotted and looped twice or undone. Pretty cool and chic. Although the Full Moon Horror Convention & Film Festival is no longer with us, I have discovered another great festival that is held in Nashville, TN called the Full Moon Tattoo & Horror Festival. It is described as reveling in the frightening, relishing in the weird and just so happens to attract some of the finest tattoo artists in the country. Each year in April, film stars and highly esteemed tattoo artists gather for three days of horror film screenings, costume contests and tattoo competitions. Sounds like my type of festival. See you there.

Q: What are the guidelines regarding graphic content?
A: None – or almost none. Anything illegal is absolutely out and will be turned over to local authorities – but beyond that, we’re game!

A: YES! Check out the ticket link on the front page for more information.

Q: Do celebrity guests charge for autographs?
A: In most cases, yes. Plan to bring extra cash for celebrity autographs. A special photo booth will also be set up for some of our featured celebrities. In general, it is best to assume the autographs & photos will cost you – and you can be pleasantly surprised if they don’t.
Q: I have an awesome original action figure still in the box – I want a celebrity to sign it. Am I allowed to bring it to the show?
A: Yes! Most celebrities charge for autographs. They also typically charge less to sign your item as opposed to buying a picture or merchandise from them.
