Opportunities at the National
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 audience.
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 Halloween.
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
