ScareLA, the Southern California convention dedicated to Halloween, is pleased to announce the premiere of an exclusive interactive exhibit Angels & Demons by renowned makeup artist Larry Bones of Bone Yard Effects, this August 8 and 9 at the Pasadena Convention Center. A fan favorite for the past two years, Bones returns to ScareLA accompanied by over two dozen talented artists to transform select ScareLA attendees into beautiful and terrifying creatures from the supernatural.
“I’m so excited to bring Bone Yard Effects back to ScareLA this year,” says Larry Bones, founder of Bone Yard Effects. “I have loved being part of this awesome event for the past two years, and am amazed by how fast it is growing. As ScareLA gets bigger, we at Bone Yard have the opportunity to grow as well. I’m pleased to announce Bone Yard’s Angels & Demons presentation. A huge team of Bone Yard artists will create either an angel or a demon character from head to toe, each with its own unique attributes. You’ll see over twenty five different characters over the weekend, and will have the opportunity to get a photo with them on our display stage. We look forward to seeing you all at ScareLA 2015!”
Bone Yard’s Angels & Demons demonstration will culminate in a small army of over 25 creatures roaming the show floor, interacting with guests, and making themselves available for unforgettable photo opps. The installation spurs from the convention’s unique focus on creating high quality immersive entertainment. It is to complement over a dozen onsite mini-haunts and experiences only found at ScareLA.
“Every year, Larry gives his Bone Yard Effects crew a new makeup challenge to unveil at ScareLA, and every year, they top themselves with even more creative and scarier creatures that end up wandering our show floor” says David Markland, Executive Producer of ScareLA. Co-producer and ScareLA founder Lora Ivanova adds, “In addition to his team’s amazing artistry, Larry offers an invaluable learning opportunity for makeup enthusiasts and professionals. Every step of the creature transformation shows tips from one of Hollywood’s greatest. We can’t wait to see what he creates with us this year.”
Since 2006, Larry Bones has been the department head of Makeup and Hair for Universal Studios Hollywood’s blockbuster event, Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles. Each season, Bones oversees the transformation of hundreds of men and women into horrific monsters that lurk in the theme park’s mazes and fog-choked scare zones. His extensive list of film and television credits include Scary Movie 2, Congo, Dawson’s Creek and Roseanne.
In addition to film and themed entertainment production work, Bones offers a line of hand-made consumer-level foam latex prosthetics, FX Faces, which will also be on display at the Bone Yard Effects booth during ScareLA. They are available for purchase online at www.boneyardfx.com.
