Blood Bash 2021

Blood Bash 2021 is coming to the Commonwealth Commerce Center on February 6th, 2021!

VENDOR ROOM:
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?

CARNIVAL GAMES:
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!

The people have asked for it, and we have listened to them! Meggaxp is proud to be bringing BLOOD BASH back for Valentine’s Weekend, 2018! People who came to Blood Bash in 2017 had a BLAST, and we were flooded with emails and Facebook requests asking if we were going to do it again….well, turns out – we are!!!

Here’s what to look forward to this year:

Horror vendors, artists, and exhibitors – – – Once again we will feature a vendor room FILLED with vendors selling original horror art, old VHS movies, posters, horror themed candy, masks, and even more bizarre stuff.

Film festival – This year we are bringing several independent film producers to Blood Bash to show off their amazing work in our film room! Also, if you are interested in showing off YOUR OWN horror feature / short, please get ahold of us via Facebook!

Cosplay Contest – Just like last year, at the after-party, we will once again feature a cosplay contest for best male and best female cosplayers!

Scream Queen Contest – Last year’s Scream Queen contest was an awesome event, and this year we are going to see who, if anyone, can dethrone last year’s champion!

Burlesque Show – Yes, we know that we said we were going to have this last year, but our dancer had issues making it to the venue………………………………………..……………………....so………………this year we have a new team lined up, and they are incredible! More to be announced soon!

My Bloody Valentine Dinner / Dance – Last year our catered dinner was the PERFECT way to celebrate Valentine’s Day – and WHAT A DEAL IT WAS! We will once again be offering up gourmet meals for you / you and your significant other – – – – at a deal so good you’ll die for it!

Horror Gaming Exhibit – Back again this year will be your chance to see how well you can do at some classic and modern video games – such as Call of Duty : Zombies, Left 4 Dead, Castlevania, and more!

MeggaXP’s “Blood Bash”

Michigan’s Entertainment, Gaming, Geek and Arts Experience (Meggaxp) invites you to EXPERIENCE horror like never before! Valentine’s weekend, 2017, join the people behind Meggaxp as they bring a horror show like no other to Jackson, Michigan…..the BLOOD BASH!

What makes Blood Bash so different? Well, let’s do a little…dissecting, shall we?

Celebrity Guests:
This is a horror show, right? Well, you know that the fine folks at Meggaxp are going to be bringing some cult classic guests to this show. We are still building our roster, but be sure to check back often to see who’s made a deal with the devil to be a part of this show!

Artists, exhibitors, and vendors:
First of all, we will feature over 60 artists, crafters, and exhibitors brining nothing but horror merchandise to the con for your sick and twisted souls to purchase! From artwork and prints to diabolical demonic bears, Blood Bash will have something for everyone!

Horror Film Festival and Marathon:
Next, Blood Bash will feature over 20 hours of horror films from classics like Night of the Living Dead and the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to new, twisted creations from short film producers in the first ever Blood Bash short film festival! More details on this to be announced later, but know that it’s going to be insanely good.

Horror Short Story Contest:
Think you’ve got what it takes to tell a twisted tale? Well, then, show that Stephen character who the REAL king of horror is – by entering our Horror Short Story Contest! More on this will be announced soon, but start creating your craziest stories, and prepare to tell them to the world! (Short stories = 2500 words or fewer, so start writing!)

My Bloody Valentine Dinner and Dance:
It IS Valentine’s weekend, after all, and FINALLY someone is doing something for the lovers of the dark and deranged – – – join us at the Commonwealth for a full fledged dinner followed by a horror dance that’s sure to be a BLOODY GOOD TIME. More on the My Bloody Valentine Dinner and Dance to be announced soon.

Horror themed gaming:
This IS brought to you by the people who run Meggaxp, and as such, you KNOW there’s GOT TO BE SOME GAMING GOING ON! Take a trip to the Atrium Ballroom and visit a museum of sorts, where you can learn about and play some of the video game industry’s most controversial and scary games of all time! From Night Trap (Sega CD) to Friday the 13th (NES) to Left 4 Dead (XBOX 360) and more – there’s going to be a lot of games to check out and even some challenges to enter…if you dare.
Not only will there be video games, though, the good folks at ThroatPunchGames will once again be demoing some of the darker tabletop games from the past 30 years, including one of our all time favorites from growing up – the Nightmare VHS Board Game! BEWARE THE GATEKEEPER! There will be several games to check out that’ll keep your horror itch scratched until Halloween comes around.

Cosplay Contest:
How could Meggaxp have an event without a cosplay contest? Yes, kiddies, we will feature a cosplay contest – where people will compete to be crowned Blood Bash Champions for 2017! We will have a few different categories, so check back for more on this!

This show is still quite a ways out, and we will be adding things to it as time goes on…keep checking back….if you dare!!
