Idaho Halloween & Horror Convention

    Campy fun for cosplay fans in mid-August

    Last year was the launch of the Idaho Halloween & Horror Convention. It was the first year of being back after the pandemic, and although people were initially hesitant to venture out to such a public event, they opened up to the experience the minute they walked through the doors of the hotel.
    This year’sIdaho Halloween & Horror Conventionreturns August 12–14, 2022 at the Red Lion Hotel Boise Downtowner. There will also be several events at other venues around town, which can be found online.
    Idaho HorrorThe convention has made some major changes: they have expanded the programming lineup and scheduled a third day. There will also be live entertainment, and a brand-new feature called “Costume Hollow.” To the best of our knowledge, Costume Hollow is the first of its kind, with a 3,000 sq ft area dedicated to cosplay, costuming, makeup, props, masks, make & takes, and more. If you’ve ever been curious about making your own costume or taking your costume to the next level, this area is designed for you. In addition to this new area of the convention, live entertainment has been added, includingHideousMonster,a horror rock band formed in early 2017 in Portland, Oregon. The band is heavily influenced by horror movies, which makes them a natural choice for the Idaho Halloween and Horror Convention. Their influences include the Misfits, The Cramps, and type O Negative. They will perform Friday and Saturday nights, August 12thand 13th. The literally mind-boggling (and funny)mentalistFoggyjack13will perform during the Undead Buffet on Friday night at6:45 pm. That same night, the First Annual Idaho Horror Vixens show will take place, featuring local drag artists from the Boise area, and will compete for “BestWitch.”
    Returning this year is also the cash costume contest which is during the HorrorBall. This year’s guests include Brent Wagner who is the “Lost Leatherface,” Dave. Sheridan from scary Movie, Felissa Rose ofSleepaway Camp, Russell Hodgkinsonwho played the lovable Doc in Z-Nation, Angus Oblong creator of “The Oblongs”,

    Shawn Morse of Shawn Morse FX, Abby Hartung, also a special effects artist, Dutch Bihary and Mythica von Griffyn from the hit TV shows Wars, and many more.
