AHS, Shadows, DAVE, Cake & Cosplay: FX Unlocked Hits Comic-Con@Home

With Comic-Con@Home (this year's virtual edition of San Diego Comic-Con) ready to launch this week, FX and experiential agency Creative Riff are teaming for "FX Unlocked," a full line-up of digital experiences inspired by some FX series favorites: What We Do in the Shadows, DAVE, Cake, and American Horror Story. Here's the best part: you'll also have the chance to unlock exclusive content, games, special virtual activations, and a chance to win FX-branded prizes- all without leaving your home and by checking out FXSDCC.com starting July 23rd. But don't think the cosplay family has been forgotten about: cosplayers also have the chance to submit costume photos, sketches, or mockups inspired by their favorite FX originals for the "FX on Hulu Cosplay Gallery."

Test of Terror: In celebration of the nine seasons of American Horror Story, fans will dive into a unique gamified trivia experience. They will navigate their way through some fearful moments by testing their knowledge of the series and solving escape room-like mechanics.

A Chat with Dave & GaTa: Fans of DAVE have been pulled in by the authentic humor that springs up between Dave Burd, known by his stage name Lil Dicky, and his real-life hype man, GaTa. In an exclusive Q&A, fans will be able to see Dave and GaTa break down some of the best moments from the series and the inspiration from their lived experiences.

Guillermo's Stakeout: Fans will be able to help Guillermo protect Nandor, Laszlo, Nadja, and Colin Robinson from the werewolves and vampires trying to kill them in this single-player interactive game. Players will wield Guillermo's stake and see how high they can score to be one of the best on the official leaderboard. Each day the top 50 scoring fans will win an exclusive deck of What We Do in the Shadows playing cards.

Piece of Cake with Jeron Braxton: A chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at Cake with an interactive workshop hosted by Jeron Braxton, creator of Daytime Noir. Participants will get hands-on experience learning how they can create their own art in partnership with Otis College of Art & Design, a national leader in art and design.
