RE in Sacramento Press

I finally found this article (via random Google search of my business name)! 
I had attended/vended Zombifest at the Greens Hotel back in September. The Sacramento Press photographer, David Alvarez had stopped by my room and took a few shots of my jewelry. The picture shown is me (looking all grotesque and zombified) holding one of my mom's creations (a Dia de Los Muertos lacy back top). It was a fun night full of live performances from Amber Sweets and a mini movie marathon by Sacramento Horror Film Festival.

Opening night features a showing of 1988's "Night of the Demons," with director Kevin Tenney in attendance.
 "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," will also be showing on Friday with live performers also taking the stage. The.1975 film will bring many fans to the event and is sure to make fans sing along as the film is shown.

Last month a fundraiser for the 6th Annual Sacramento Horror Film Festival was held at the Greens Hotel located at 1700 Del Paso Blvd., on Sept. 21. The fundraiser, known as Zombiefest, brought dozens of horror film fans to the Greens.
Zombiefest was a fundraiser that included live entertainment and zombie short films. Tim Meunier, Producer and Founder of SHFF and his crew put together an enjoyable show.

As guests mingled they also visited several vendors on hand. Anthony Leano had CDs, DVDs, posters and other horror genre materials on hand. Leano talked to visitors who came to view what he had available and many stayed to hear Leano’s tales about conventions he has attended.

Many fans came in costume and some participated in a costume contest. This was an all ages event but not many kids were in attendance.

The evening ended with a special screening of George A. Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead.”
Like many other independent events the support of fans goes a long way to keep festivals such as the Sacramento Horror Film Festival going. The 6th annual festival includes live events on Friday and Saturday. Log on to the SHFF for further details and for a complete schedule of the films and events planned for this year.
