This year's Monsterpalooza was a huge success, and even more exciting than last year's! We got to see a lot of great makeups and costumes and spend time with some of the best artists in the special effects industry and hang out with some of the stars of FaceOff!
We were particularly excited to unveil the sibling product to Cx5: Cx5s! That's right, the soft version of Cx5. Everyone at Monsterpalooza got a chance to see it in action and experience some of the very new and unique properties that it brings to the Cx5 family. Monsterpaloozians got the first chance to buy Cx5s, and the official launch of Cx5s comes this May.
Another fun announcement from this year's show are brand new sculptable, poseable roughs in Cx5s. We warmed up the pre-sculpted figures in warm water and went to town repositioning them and adding all kinds of features from zombie faces to giant claw arms. Poseable roughs will be for sale soon, too!
Other highlights of the show were meeting yet more amazing industry professionals and touring some of my all time favorite studios - Stan Winston Studios and New Deal Studios - responsible for many of the amazing effects seen in movies like Terminator, Predator, Alien, The Nightmare Before Christmas and so much more. Holding the on-screen props in real life was a rush.
