If you prefer the cold, dark excitement of October's Halloween to the sweltering heat of a SoCal July, then the Midsummer Scream
Convention could be your air-conditioned dream -- or nightmare -- come true. This Halloween and horror convention delivers plenty of thrills and chills as you explore more than a dozen haunted attractions in the Hall of Shadows (this year larger than ever), shop from hundreds of spooky vendors and experience all the spine-tingling excitement of Halloween over one summer weekend! Special effect make up demos, creepy cosplay, and monstrous delights lurk around every corner. Celebrity guests this year include Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark), Kimberly J. Brown (star of Halloweentown
), Ryan Bergara and Shane Mendez from Buzzfeed Unsolved
and more! If that's not enough, there is so much to do while you're there. Take a doomed shopping trip at Slashback Video, the '80s-era, horror-inspired VHS store recreation, appearing for the first time since its wildly popular run at Bearded Lady's Mystic Museum or escape the scares for a bit with the adorable balls of fluff at The Black Cat Lounge, an entire room of ferociously cute live kittens running amuck for guests to pet, cuddle, and adopt. So whether you're a fan of the macabre, a Halloween industry professional -- or fall somewhere in between -- you're sure to have a truly frightening amount of fun.
