Hug A Monster Day 2012 – A Monster of a Recap

Every year on July 27th, monsters, demons, and psychotic freaks across the galaxy celebrate a holiday in honor of themselves – Intergalactic Hug A Monster Day.

This year, Asheville residents braved the streets of downtown to attend a Hug A Monster Day celebration at ZaPow! studio and gallery. The afternoon and evening were amazing, and we could not have had a better time!

SML thanks ZaPow and Spellbound Children’s Bookshop for helping us host our events. We also send our special thanks to Ben Wilson for his excellent musical performance, French Broad Brewing for the keg, and the Hop Ice Cream Cafe for doling out spooky sweet flavors for free. It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

But, as much fun as we had, we know that not all pro-monster partiers made it out last week. Here are a few photos from the event to show you what you missed. More photos of people hugging their favorite monsters are on Facebook.

Some monsters like to hug, some like to strangle you.


Our monster mascots help us with our evil schemes, as well as taking care of chores around the mansion. From writing press releases to collaborating on blog posts, this blog would not exist without them.
