Most of you know what this is all about, but let us give you a recap for the newcomers!
We are hosting a Cosplay beach/pool-themed party with grill/picnic food, drinks, music/dance/rave parties featuring various DJs throughout the day, volleyball, photoshoots, watermelon smashing (スイカ割り) and many more WEEB activities!
BYOB for alcohol, and shouldbe kept in the shelter/picnic area.
HARD LIQUOR IS NOT PERMITTED by the Metropark.
Since there will be consumption of alcohol, 18+ is the recommended age of the party. However, it is a public park so anyone of all ages are allowed to attend.
Minor attendees should notify their parents/guardian that the environment will include alcoholic beverages present, but we do not encourage underage drinking.
Cosplay is an expensive hobby.
With all the cosplay conventions we go to, the cosplays we buy or build and buy supply/material for, can rack up 💰💰💰 quick.
So we want to hold a FREE ADMISSION event (with an exception of $10 metropark entry per vehicle) where cosplayers can still do what they love, but not worry about spending a large sum of money to attend events.
Join us for a day of vendors, artists, special pop culture industry guests, panels, cosplay and everything “nerdy” in between!

The Magical Realm is a non-profit, Charity Faire, designed to make the lives of our beneficiaries a little bit more magical and help them in their time of need.
The Magical Realm was just bursting at the seams with fun and laughter, cheers and enjoyment. So much so, that we had tons of it left over. So, the fairies gathered it up to store, and begged us to have at least one more! We have searched our calendars, sourced our dates, and decided to grant the wish of all our fairies and friends who had such an amazing time! We in the Magical Realm are proud to say that we will be hosting another year of faire and festivities. So, we are rounding up our entertainers, merchants, vikings, pirates and more to hoist their flags, raise their swords, and march into another year! We are pleased to invite one and all to come and visit the Magical Realm this year!”

Review and Gallery
Blood Bash 2021 is coming to the Commonwealth Commerce Center on February 6th, 2021!
The vendor room will be THE PLACE to be again! Last year we had over 40 tables of vendors selling horror merch, and 2021 promises to bring back amazing vendors selling anything from prints to shirts to baby toes in a bottle – – – yep, if it’s gore or horror you may find these things and more!
HORROR FILM FESTIVAL:
There will once again be an International Horror Film Festival and we will be awarding awards for:
Best In Show (Short)
Favorite Male Performance
Favorite Female Performance
and maybe a few new awards as well?
The carnival games will be returning! That’s right, kids! You will once again be able to play some of your favorite and most twisted carnival games at Blood Bash, and as always they will be free! We will see the return of the games from 2020/2019 and maybe even have some new games to play!
COSPLAY AND SCREAM QUEEN CONTESTS:
Rumor has it that these will be moved up and take place during the regular convention hours in an effort to get the most cosplayers possible to be in them! 2020 saw a TON of amazing cosplays that weren’t around for the actual contest and we’re taking that issue head on in 2021! More on this to follow.
HORROR VIDEO GAME AND TABLETOP GAMES:
You know these will be back! Play some tabletop games, win tickets! Beat certain challenges on games like Castlevania or Zombies Ate My Neighbors – win tickets!
We’ve decided to go in a different direction this year, postponing Hero Nation Comic-Con until a time when we can safely gather again. But don’t despair! We’re preparing a new virtual experience to share our story and exciting announcements.
Introducing: Hero Nation Presents.
Coming October 10, right here on Facebook.
