Doug Bradley Has such sights to show you. The actor, known for his role as Pinhead in the Hellraiser franchise, which Clive Baker began in 1987. While Bradley exited the franchise in 2011, he still is and always will be Pinhead in the eyes of his fans.
Bradley will give fans something that they have been begging for for years, a photo with Pinhead himself. No, it’s not just some “photo op” this is a full-on Pinhead Experience! Bradley will be putting on the pins and the full costume for photos on a fully dressed set, complete with props.
Bradley announced the once in a lifetime event via Facebook:

We’ve been keeping this quiet for nearly a year now and it feels great to finally let you all in on it!
When fans and show organizers started to ask about the possibility of a Pinhead photo op with Doug a few years back, we dismissed it as an impossibility. Almost nothing relating to Pinhead existed anymore. No makeup. No costume. Not even a life cast. Besides, shaking hands and “posing” for a picture with Pinhead seemed like a silly idea. From Doug’s perspective, if he’s in make-up and costume, he’s in character. “Hi. How are you?’ doesn’t quite trip off The Prince Of Pain’s tongue, does it?
The more time went on, the more the questions persisted and the more we talked about it. An idea evolved. If Pinhead can’t enter the fans’ world, how can we bring you into his? If we were to do it, we would want it to stand apart from the rest. It would need to be different. We began to talk about something a little more involved than the photo ops that most fans were used to. We wanted to present an experience and not just a photograph, as close to stepping on set with Doug as Pinhead as we could make it.
We finally made the decision to go forward with our ideas, fully knowing it would be a stressful, expensive, time consuming undertaking. It would have to be coordinated and funded solely by us, but even with that prospect, we would not skimp on details. We hired some of our closest and most talented friends to help us bring it all to life. We can only hope that everyone will be happy with what we’ve been able to accomplish together. We’re still working on some of the final details but this is something we will present to fans for the first time at Mad Monster Party, Arizona in May, 2017.
We hope you can join Doug for this experience.
Stay tuned!!

So, what could make this any better? How about the fact that the “Godfather of Gore”, SFX master Tom Savini created the new mask, costume and props! Are you on pins and needles yet?
So when is “The Pinhead Experience” taking place? May 19-21 at the Mad Monster Party convention in Arizona. Check out the teaser that Doug Bradley released along with his announcement.
