Continuing to one-up themselves each year, FX returned to the Hilton Bayfront lawn with an offsite activation called the FX Fearless Forum, which was open Thursday through Sunday afternoon during Comic-Con. Similar to previous years, the FX offsite provided larger attractions as well as several quick, drive-through activities, like a Mayans tattoo parlor, an Always Sunny in Philadelphia sunscreen zone, Archer O2 Station, and a pick-your-favorite-show hat creation studio.
After having your photo taken and receiving your fancy new RFID card, you were able to wander the offsite and select which activity to visit. The two main attractions were the What We Do In the Shadows lair, and the fear-inducing American Horror Story: 1984 “Face the Darkness” walk-through. Both were fantastic set-ups that sucked you in, so to speak, to each series.
The Shadows lair had vampires to converse with — who were so spot-on that you occasionally wondered if you should worry for your life — and a photo booth cooking up photographic sorcery.
Parks & Cons also captured the What We Do In The Shadows cast visiting the offsite:
