[Convention] The Grue-Crew Invade Scares that Care Weekend 2018

On August 3 – 5, 2018, the Grue-crew took up residence at the Gruesome Magazine booth at the Scares that Care Weekend in Williamsburg, Virginia. Horror News Radio co-hosts Doc Rotten, Christopher G. Moore, and Vanessa Thompson was in attendance promoting the podcasts and the website while meeting fans, friends, and fellow vendors. It was an amazing time and all for a great cause at the horror convention run by Joe Ripple – all for charity.

Many friends and family were at the convention as well. Josh Thompson was on hand taking official  Gruesome Magazine photos. Junior Rotten was there to help man the table and keep the Grue-crew in line. Scarlett Spitfire cosplay cohorts Jenna Say What and Stormaggedon (along with their besties) were on hand to liven up the joint.

Below is a photo gallery of the event and the convention. We also have a number of shots from the costume contest we will be posting son. Enjoy!
