Creaturefest 2002

Ginger Stanley, Ben Chapman and Julie Adams

From November 8 - 10, 2002, Ben Chapman attended Creaturefest 2002 in Wakulla Springs State Park where most of the Creature From the Black Lagoon footage was shot. The 2002 Creaturefest was the second annual convention held at the location. In the picture above, you will see Ginger Stanley who was the double for Julie Adams who did the famous underwater ballet scenes with the creature (see picture below of her swimming). Ben Chapman, and Julie Adams are on the right. This year was the first time for Julie and Ben to appear at the same conventions at the same time. They will be appearing more frequently together in the future.

Ginger Stanley swimmingAt left is the underwater ballet sequence in the original film with Ginger Stanley and Ricou Browning as the double for the Gillman. Her silhouette casts shadows on the Creature, who mimics her actions. Stanley worked at Silver Springs as a public relations officer, swimmer, and in-house model. She broke the record for the longest underwater swim: 7 miles and three and a half hours. A friend recharged her aqualung along the way. She later appeared in Revenge of the Creature. She is now married and raised three daughters in Florida. Her married name is now Hallowell.

Below you will find other pictures from the event. Two are pictures of Ginger and Ben signing autographs and the last one is a picture of a tour boat at the shooting location from the original movie.
