Celebrity SFX Make-Up Artist, Tyler Green will be on hand for two incredible Halloween-themed attractions.
1. Zombie Mask Making (a STEM-certified art activity!)
This is THE best way to get a Halloween costume, by having your kids make it themselves! Create, decorate & wear high quality masks designed & manufactured by Tyler Green. Participants will mix their colors, paint and decorate their mask with custom elements provided by Tyler.
NOTE: While everyone can view this on our big stage, in order to participate, an ADVANCE purchase of a zombie mask kit is required!
2. A can't miss for fans of Face Off! Throughout the day at his booth, Tyler will be turning a model into a zombie right in front of our eyes!
Our friend Chris Weeks is a cosplayer (and veteran) who has helped us out in the past by becoming Batman for our visit to an elementary school for Superhero Self Esteem. He embodies the qualities of Superman, so he will become Superman for our Trick or Treat Meet and Greet!
Captain Jaxx Parrow is a legendary pirate who will be joining us once again for photo ops and interactions with you! He looks the part, he acts the part...the goal is to fully immerse you in his world!
The Dark Knight (as potrayed by Central Virginia Batman, who helped us once before when visited a sick child) and his partner Catwoman will be on hand to meet kids and hand out Halloween candy!
The characters from Sesame Street are coming to Heroes Assemble!
Performed by the cosplay duo of @rva_daviscosplay, Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster will be a part of our Trick or Treat Meet and Greet!
We have been looking for unique and cool ways to feature cosplay (aside from the typical guest table stuff that other cons do) and having kids favorite characters come to life for photos and trick or treating is a great way to do that (and of course, we'll also have our cosplay fashion show again)!
Okay...so...I know we said that we are bringing in CHARACTERS for kids to meet...so TECHNICALLY I should know what character we are bringing in....but I don't care because @mightymorfincosplay is one of my absolute favorite cosplayers and I KNOW she'll create something incredible for the kids to meet (her Antony creation is one of my favorite con things ever).
@richywho_cosplay was kind enough to appear as Superman in our commercial last year, and we discovered that he has a TON of great cosplays...so...maybe he'll be Robin...or Mr Fantastic...or Cyclops...who knows? We'll figure it out as we get closer to the event.
