This year’s New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival finished up a crazy weekend at the Showboat Hotel on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Any gathering of superfans is going to bring some amazing cosplayers. Saturday night, NJ Horror Con gave out their awards in the Cosplay Contest, but there were no losers. While every horror convention will inevitably bring out a number of Michaels, Freddys, and Jasons, the fans in Jersey rocked their costumes and the effort to entertain and scare others was amazing.

Along with the classic dress ups we also saw modern and classic icons, and even children getting in on the act. Amazing costumes this year included a full Xenomorph from the Alien franchise, an award-winning couple in matching Texas Chainsaw outfits, a woman dressed as Zuul from Ghostbusters, and the Shining twins.
NJ Horror Con was a bad place to be for someone with coulrophobia as evil clowns are always a popular look and there was an amazing Pennywise as well as newcomer to clown horror, Art the Clown of Terrifier fame. Art even “acted out” at the costume contest in a scene maybe we can see in Terrifier 2. With cast members from Ash vs Evil Dead there, Ash was a popular costume for men, women, and children. The overall costume contest winner was an amazing GWAR-esque monster.
