The Chalk Twins
Devon and Lexi (the Chalk Twins) both received majors in studio art and studied a breadth of art media through the University of Georgia program in Cortona, Italy. In addition to their formal study in art, Devon and Lexi have enjoyed tremendous success as chalk artists. For the past nine years they have been participating in chalk art competitions where they have been awarded in 14 out of 17 events.
They now bring their live chalking performances to conventions and special events around the country. Typically their convention performances are re-creations of everyone’s favorite characters, 25 to 100 square feet in size, that come to life over the course of the show.
The Zombie Walk
Dust the graveyard clay from that old winding sheet and shamble on out because it’s time for the Third Annual MegaCon Zombie Walk! Come as your favorite character, come as your favorite actor, come as you are, as long as you come just a little bit deader. Anyone WITHOUT a pulse is welcome to join the Grand March of the Dead through the exhibit hall, and our junior necromancers are standing by to, for a nominal fee, rip the flesh, expose the bone, and stiffen the sinews of any brave souls who wish to sample a bit of what the undiscovered country has to offer.
