Normally the convention focuses on horror themed events including some amazing cosplay, including these great Haunted Mansion costumes.

Spooky Empire has even done tributes to Disney’s Haunted Mansion with some unique wax figures.

They even invite celebrities to the event every year like in 2014 when Ken Burns, the voice of Oogie Boogie, came out to do an interview and sign autographs in 2014.
