Hey Horror fans! Be sure to come visit us this weekend at DAYS OF THE DEAD: CHICAGO, happening November 17th - 19th at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg.
We’ll have a ton of killer merchandise on hand. We’re also thrilled that our favorite Scream Queen and beloved horror icon Felissa Rose will be hanging out with us at our booth, signing autographs and taking photos with fans.
We’re excited to have a prime location right by the entrance to the vendor hall. You can’t miss us! We’re getting all set up and can’t wait to meet and interact with all the incredible members of our Horror family. We hope to see some familiar faces and make many new friends this weekend.
We also could not be more thrilled and honored to have Felissa Rose as our special guest. Felissa is best known for her role as "Angela Baker" in the 1983 cult classic, SLEEPAWAY CAMP. Over the years, she has also appeared in other genre fare such as SATAN'S PLAYGROUND, SLAUGHTER PARTY, and RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP, among many others.
Following a recent career resurgence, Felissa has become one of the most hardworking and sought after actresses in the genre. She’s also an extremely popular fan favorite who is always in high demand at horror conventions. With a well-earned reputation for being one of the kindest and most generous genre stars around (which we can wholeheartedly attest to), Felissa is definitely an icon you don’t want to pass up the opportunity to meet. She truly loves and appreciates Horror fans, and it shows.
We met Felissa while partnering with her to release our Officially Licensed Sleepaway Camp merchandise, and she has been an absolute joy to work with — incredibly supportive and excited to be a part of helping make the release as great as possible. It’s been the most fun we’ve had to date working on a product line, and we look forward to bringing you every amazing new addition to the collection, designed in close collaboration with Rose herself.
In fact, if you stop by our booth this weekend, you can even get your hands on the most recent addition to our Sleepaway Camp Collection, a Limited Glow in the Dark Edition “Dreaming of a Red Christmas” Sleepaway Camp Sweater. Quantities are very limited, and we’re close to selling out. So be sure to get there early and grab yours before they are gone for good!
Felissa will also be starring in the upcoming, highly anticipated indie horror film DEATH HOUSE. And, if you haven’t heard the news, we are excited to have obtained the EXCLUSIVE rights to Death House merchandise, coming soon!
Felissa Rose will be appearing at Days of the Dead Chicago all three days courtesy of TERROR THREADS.
She joins previously announced guests, FAIRUZA BALK (The Craft), SEAN ASTIN (Lord of the Rings, The Goonies), RYAN HURST (Sons of Anarchy, Bates Motel), LINDA BLAIR (The Exorcist), RAY WISE (Twin Peaks), KANE HODDER (Friday the 13th franchise) a HELLRAISER reunion, and much, much, MORE!
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, and has since expanded into a total of five cities nationwide (CHICAGO, INDIANAPOLIS, LOUISVILLE, CHARLOTTE, and ATLANTA).
DAYS OF THE DEAD's primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming social 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.
Chock full of special events tailored just for the fans, an active after hour’s scene of horror themed parties, and a massive guest list of the hottest celebrity guests, artists, and up and coming independent film makers, DAYS OF THE DEAD is rewriting the script and setting the bar for what a true horror convention weekend should look like.
The event is returning to Chicagoland for its 6th year and is bringing a full weekend of celebrity guests, film screenings, vendors, and special events, with it! For tickets, as well as more info, visit www.daysofthedead.com/chicago.
We hope to see you there!
