Toy Machine Halloween Demo 2018

Costumes off, time to hydrate

A lot of rad costumes this year

Recognized a few songs from this year’s KOTR. Be sure to check them out

Tommy Guns was a no-brainer
In the end most went home with something, though. Thank you, Toy Machine and Active for throwing another great Halloween demo!
