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. read more

CT HorrorFest 2018’s ‘Adult and Kids Costume Contests’

Dozens of costumed ghouls filled the streets of Danbury, CT as they made their way to CT HorrorFest at the Danbury Arena. It wasn’t blood or bodies that the undead were on the hunt for, it was fun and prizes.

First up was the kid’s costume contest which featured adorable little tykes dressed as scary as possible.  The contest was won by a young girl who was dressed as a mash up of Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street. Her costume was brilliantly done and was called “Nightmare Before Christmas on Elm Street.” Runner-up was a lovable girl dressed as Pennywise from IT. A miniature duo of Freddy (from Nightmare on Elm Street) and Jason (from Friday the 13th) took third place and killed the crowd in the most adorable way possible. read more
