Special effects artists are incredible, and I hope one day I have the opportunity to work under an artist in this field. I had a chance to sit front row for Bloody Sunday: A True Blood Panel Discussion, and see never-before-seen makeup test shots, and hear the makeup and FX team talk about having one of the coolest jobs around! The following are some photos I snapped throughout the weekend of various FX makeups around the convention, and a few shots from the True Blood panel. I tried to pick and choose, but there were too many good ones! Enjoy!
