Days of the Dead is a by the fans, for the fans, convention which had its inaugural show July 1st – 3rd, 2011, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located in Indianapolis, IN. The brainchild of Adolfo “Mr. Chainsaw: Dorta (From Dusk till Con), Ricardo “Del Muerto” Lara (From Dusk Till Con, 8 Bit Monsters), and Bill Philputt (Re-Evolution Management), Days of the Dead’s primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming communal gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another “pay-and-go” autograph show that has become an all too common (and impersonal) experience in the convention scene.
Days of The Dead is now is 5 cities nationwide every year starting in Atlanta Georgia in February. The other locations cities are Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Chicago.
I have been fortunate enough to attend the Days of the Dead convention in Atlanta Georgia the last few years and its been unforgettable. There are 100’s of conventions throughout the US every year for fans. But Days of the Dead has been the most talked about, Easy access that fans have had to their favorite Celebrity in a very long time. Check out our pictures and Interviews below of our previous years at Days of the Dead.
