HauntedIllinois.com's Review of
2019 Midwest Haunters Convention - Allen Hopps Trash Monster
HauntedIllinois.com's Review of the 2019 Midwest Haunters Convention (MHC) in Schaumburg, Illinois near Chicago.  The review features hundreds of pictures, video clips and more!

On the trade show floor stage, Allen Hopps (Dark Hour Haunted House / StiltBeast Studios) gave an informative demonstration, showing all attendees how to create a monster out of common, affordable materials using simple techniques. One of the things he explained during his presentation was the fact that these are the same techniques that are used by movie studios during their creature tests.

As he listed the construction steps, he put the pieces together and within minutes, a simple "monster" began to take shape. Comprised only of pool noodles, garbage bags and plastic wrap, this creature arm extension featured multiple tentacles. The only tools required for this build were a box cutter, scissors and a heat gun. I was surprised at how simple the process was. With a little creativity, time and a few simple materials, anyone can make a monster of their own by following this model. Refer to the picture gallery below to see the various stages of this basic monster build.
