Pasadena Horror Con is a joint effort between business partners, buddies, and convention royalty Scott Zillner and Loryn Stone of Troublemakers Services. They have worked in every conceivable role from vendor relations, guest outreach, press and media management, programming director, social media and promotions, up to volunteer coordination. To say the least, these two are no strangers to the convention scene.
Pasadena Horror Con is a labor of love from two convention lifers who knew it was time to give Pasadena, California its own Horror Show to call its own! The horror scene is such an impassioned, fun loving community filled with art, excitement, amazing collectibles, and iconic celebrities that the two Troublemakers knew it was time to give the community another amazing event.
In addition to working conventions together, Loryn and Scott are the respective Editor-in-Chief and owner of the successful toy news website Toy Wizards.
Outside of their joint business ventures, Loryn is a toy collector and the owner of the pop culture website PopLurker, which is often on the convention press scene. She is a freelance writer and digital content creator and co-owns several other conventions including Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest, Megabit Game Expo, Ventura Toy and Comic Expo, and Toon-Con. She is also SyFy Wire’s toy journalist and writer of the weekly column ‘Important Toy News’. Loryn’s writing has appeared on Cracked, Loadscreen, Nerdbot, Temple of Geek, and That Hashtag Show. She is also the author of a young adult novel titled My Starlight, which is a high school slice of life story about fandom and the convention scene.
Scott is the owner of Planet X Toys, which is not only the name of his booth when he exhibits at conventions, but also his online toy store where his merchandise is sold. He is a world renowned toy collector, an uber collector more specifically, whose collection fills and displays across his entire house. He will appear in season three of Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us, as well as Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest. In addition to Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest, his other shows include Pasadena Comic Con, Sac Toy Con, Power Morphicon, Power Morphicon Express, Robo Toy Fest, Japan World Heroes, Megabit Game Expo, and Toon-Con.
