At Days of the Dead in Indianapolis

Today is the final day for the Days of the Dead convention. As much fun as conventions are, I always get sad leaving them on the final day.  Fortunately, there will be more Days of the Dead cons and I am already looking forward to the next one.
Co-Promoter Adolfo Dorta did a great job with this convention.  The guest list was great.  The events were interesting.  The situation was well organized.  I wish all cons were run as smoothly as this one. 
Tom Savini is a legend in the horror genre.  While Savini has been at several cons in the past, I somehow never managed to meet him.  Sometimes it is all about the timing.  As you can see in the photo below, Adolfo had met Savini previously.  Savini is known as the Godfather of horror makeup and special effects.
If this Days of the Dead con was any indication, Adolfo will be well on his way to becoming known as the Godfather of horror cons!
