Media Opportunities at
the National Halloween Convention
Halloween in May? Halfway to Halloween!
You bet. Halloween in all its varied
forms and sub genre's is second only to Christmas in
the American imagination, and pocketbook. So much goes
into the 2-month season, that for many people it is
a year round activity. For the Halloween hobbyist or
amateur Haunter, this still means months of preparation
on evenings and weekends devoted to making sure their
latest projects are special. So early spring is when
it all starts happening.
The NHC brings together professional
haunters, Amateur home haunters, Halloween decorators,
antique collectors, Horror film fans, and history buffs
all under the one umbrella of the holiday.
While everyone knows about different
conventions for different hobbies, no other convention
offers this unique combination sure to appeal to a huge
Convention activities will include
a dealer's room, masquerade ball, competitions, and
trips to some of the best haunted attractions in the
country. But what makes this event stand out for the
public is the education section. Lecturers from around
the country will be Professors for the weekend, so attendees
can learn everything they need to get the most out of
Classes in costumes, makeup, special
effects, prop building, scenic design, and even scareology,
will be taught by a staff that totals up hundreds of
years of experience in their fields. These Halloween
professors have experience in TV, Film, Stage, Music
Videos, Ren Faires, Historical Re-enactments, and of
course Haunted Houses and Attractions.
Both the Professors as well as many
of the staff would be happy to speak to you for stories
before, during, and after the event.
