With the hustle and bustle that is NYCC, we are all treated with some seriously cool exclusives... but the whole world doesn't just close down and let NYCC run its course, nope, the show must go on and the folks over at Stranger Factory hosted their now annual 'Bewitching III' group art show and exhibition... and thankfully Anthony Truong, an avid SpankyStokes.com reader and scoop giver, was on hand to take a TON of photos from the event, and we are forever grateful! The show will featured over 2 dozen local, national, and internationally recognized visual artists and designers, and these artists were tasked to find inspiration in the history of Halloween, including costuming and merchandise from a past long gone to the symbolism and icons of this fantastic hallowed holiday – black cats to witches, to the walking dead and pumpkin kings... and through the photos that Anthony took... we really get a glimpse of how each and every artist interpreted this event.
