Last year’s Sinister Creature Con saw the event return after the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to skip a year. Attendance was so strong that organizers have added another day to this year’s event, June 18-19.
An unspeakably fun afterparty featuring the Scream Queens Gorelesque Cabaret Troupe and dark cabaret troubadour Aurelio Voltaire rounds out this year’s event.
As always, Sinister Creature Con will feature demonstrations, Q&A panels, and opportunities to meet celebrities from all corners of horror and cult film. Its legendary vendor hall is bigger than ever, with more than 100 horror-genre artisans, including filmmakers and actors, writers, practical fx designers, comic book artists, painters, and tattoo artists. Featured guests include actors Rachel True (The Craft, Half-Baked), Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects, your worst nightmares), Fred Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn), and Lisa Loring, the original Wednesday Addams. Some of the horror genre’s most innovative makeup and FX artists, including Dan Acosta, Gina Scheiber, and Rainn Williamson, will share the secrets of their craft in live demos.
It wouldn’t be Sinister Creature Con without cosplay, and this year’s event will feature more competitions and more flat-out escapist fun than ever.
