We’re all set up and ready to go; zombie gnomes, horror masks, zombie heads and more!
Plus there are tons of other cool vendors and guests to check out.
Today is the first day of Fan Expo Toronto and it goes all weekend… we’re gonna be there so come by and chat us up 😉
Considered by many to be the “Comic Con” of Canada, Fan Expo Canada™ humbly began as the Canadian National Comic Book Expo in 1995. Growing from one genre with 1500 fans to a multifaceted show connecting over 90,000 fans, Fan Expo Canada™ is currently the 3rd largest pop culture event in North America!
Timeline and Growth:
1995 – the inaugural Canadian National Comic Book Expo (1,500 fans)
1998 – The Canadian National Anime Expo was added (7,000 fans)
1999 – The Science Fiction Expo is added (9,700 fans)
2004 – Rue Morgue’s “Festival of Fear” Horror expo joins in (28,000 fans)
2005 – Gaming Expo joins the event (40,000 fans)
2006 – rebranded as FAN EXPO CANADA™ featuring Comic, Sci-Fi, Anime, Horror and Gaming (43,000 fans)
The success of Fan Expo Canada™ is not only due to its unique content but also its growing, diverse community.
Now entering its 19th year, Fan Expo Canada™ showcases over 900 exhibitors and sprawls over 750,000 square feet of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre!
Alot of new stuff to post in the coming weeks but for now…

Let’s be honest come July we could all use a little more Halloween in our lives 😉
Hope to see you there!!
It’s been a while since our last update so here’s what’s going on in the Zombie Gnome factory:
ICE HAS BEEN FORMING 🙁
We’ve been hibernating over the last few weeks trying to escape the clammy cold grasp of Old Man Winter. For those of you living in warmer climates around the world you may not be aware of him, he’s an evil bastard and he hates Canadians more than most… Something to do with all of us living in his muchly coveted northern hemisphere. Apparently, he’s not much for sharing.. So, for a few months of each year he attempts to make our lives as dreary and miserable as possible through the use of snow, wind, slush, cold weather and the awful small talk of the weather that comes with them..
Needless to say, We don’t much care for him.
So, we’ve been spending as much time as possible indoors working on spreading the infection without freezing it first :p As some of you may have seen on our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/revenantfx) we’ve completed the first few prototypes of our smaller “Bite Size” Zombie Gnomes. We’re currently just working on smoothing out the final kinks in producing them and then we’ll be selling them along side our full size gnomes.
Also, The Lepracadaver is quickly nearing completion as well. His latex mold is complete and as soon as we get a day of warm enough weather his fiberglass mothermold will be made and the castings of him will begin 🙂
Lastly, We got to make our first few Infected Apparel t-shirts this week. The trails and tribulations of learning to silk screen have been a non-stop uphill battle but we’re learning a little more with each attempt. More news to come on the t-shirt front soon… In the mean time though, here’s a little preview of some future designs.
Hope you enjoy and feel free to comment, share, inquire and as always;
