Scares That Care Weekend 2 drew to a close Sunday evening in beautiful (and slightly toasty) Williamsburg, Virginia this weekend. I spent my Saturday and Sunday gracing (okay, maybe infesting) the HWA table. There's something about being around folks who share a love for all things horror that brings out the best in all of us. Truly.
Below are some pictures that I've heisted from various locations in the interest of promoting the cause and sharing my mug alongside some faces I've known forever but never had the pleasure to meet. And a few I met last year at the inaugural voyage of Scares That Care Williamsburg.
Talking to folks is always the highlight for me. Everyone from authors to actors to movie makers to craftspeople, ranging from newbies to seasoned pros.
I was completely new to the con scene last year, but as near as I could tell this year was a lot more successful than 2014 so I think we can expect a Scares That Care Weekend 3 in 2016 and if it comes I'll be there!
Thanks to Mr. Joe Ripple for all of his hard work in making this happen, the HWA for their sponsorship of the HWA Virginia table and to Dee Southerland, David Alexander and Pamela Kinney for putting up with my incessant rambling.
The place was hopping!
