The Ten Best Monster Photos from Texas Frightmare Weekend

Last weekend they found each other. Monsters, honey badger caretakers and chainsaw enthusiasts swarmed the Hyatt Regency for Texas Frightmare Weekend, the area's annual celebration of all things gore. The eighth installment of TFW featured two Buseys, Danny Trejo and loads of pulseless and soon-to-be pulseless Walking Dead cast members.

When the horror stars align, it's time to cook up some fake blood. We sent photographer Mike Mezeul to capture the most creative convention costumes roaming through Frightmare. Then, we ripped through 'em and picked our ten favorites. Be warned: these images could blow open ancient seals.
