CT HorrorFest 2019’s Adult and Kids Costume Contests Feature Original Designs and Horror Favorites

CT HorrorFest 2019 kicked off its schedule of panels on Saturday at the Naugatuck Event Center with costume contests where the best dressed attendees could take home one of six incredible cash prizes. First up was the kids costume contest, which featured adorable mini versions of everyone’s favorite monsters including Pennywise, Jason Voorhees, and Freddy Krueger. Many of the kids accented their performances with theme song music and some unforgettable dance moves on stage.

The adult contest was more competitive than ever, and the event was marked by a number of detailed and intricate hand-crafted costumes. The contestants who ultimately took home prizes represented a wide variety of horror icons. The grand prize winner donned a screen-accurate Pyramid Head costume from Silent Hill 2, which featured creative design choices for the monster’s iconic constricting mask and over-sized knife. The runners up represented the Saw franchise with a hand-crafted Billy mask and bear trap device and the holiday traditions of yesteryear with a recreation of Krampus in the flesh.

If you couldn’t catch these events in person, Horror News Network has got you covered! Below, you can stream both events in their entirety on the official HNN YouTube account:
