The inaugural Haunted Screams Expo took place on Sept. 21-22, 2019 in Hampton, Virginia, featuring special guests including Tyler Mane, as well as Q&As, the makeup effects contest on Saturday, and costume contests for kids and adults on both days, which drew some pretty impressive horror-themed cosplay.
The 1st Place winner in the kids division on Saturday was six-year-old Amelia Rohrenbach with her vampire fairy costume, followed by nine-year-old Brock Evans as Georgie from It in 2nd Place, nine-year-old Cannon Evans as the pumpkin reaper in 3rd Place, and seven-year-old Annabelle Hutson as a unicorn warrior in 4th Place.
In the adult division on Saturday, Ryan O’Farrell of Virginia Beach won 1st Place as Old Greg.
Evelyn Maurer won 1st Place in the kids division on Sunday as a Ghostbuster, while Norman Warren won 1st Place among the adults for his cosplay of X-Men member Nightcrawler.
The Haunted Screams Expo is hosted by Laitram Tsol, an original horror character who moderates the events.
