From Christmas Main Street to the Winter Wonderland of Horror, Oversized Christmas Presents and also a Krampus,tons of room to shoot, two different indoor haunted houses, and dozens of different rooms.

There will be two makeup artists at the event – two of the best in the state – Bonnie Bones and Barbie Hood. They’ll be there for the cosplayers and models, so you can get the best Horror look you want! We’re only charging $5 for makeup – that’s an amazing deal. Basically the cost of materials!

If you bring your own model(s), feel free to wander and find places to shoot. It’s all indoors, so there’s heat and bathrooms. Two pro makeup artists will be there in the A.M.

You can show up any time and stay as long as you want. It’s from 11am until 4pm, so if you arrive at 11 you can stay until 4!

Krampus: A Haunted Christmas Comes to Chicago December 16th-17th

Krampus: A Haunted Christmas Comes to Chicago Dec. 16-17
Creators of 13th Floor Bring Holiday Nightmares to Life

WHAT: The children may be nestled all snug in their bed, while visions of nightmares haunt them with dread.

From the creators of 13th Floor Haunted House comes a new and twisted holiday tradition. Krampus: A Haunted Christmas will open in Chicago for one weekend only, giving revelers a much-needed break from carol singing and tree trimming and an opportunity to bring the sprit – or the ghouls – of Christmas to life.

The event will transform the 13th Floor Haunted House into a twisted tale of terror where Krampus, a nightmarish demon, has kidnapped not only the bad, but also the good children at Christmas. Beloved yuletide characters of yesteryear, now macabre and maniacal, will terrorize guests in this distorted holiday nightmare – with all of the gut-wrenching twists, turns and special effects 13th Floor Haunted House guests have come to expect.

WHEN: The two-day event is scheduled from 7 to 11 p.m. on Dec. 16 and 17. Tickets are available for purchase at http://krampushauntedchristmas.com/chicago/.

TICKETS: General admission: $24.99 + tax. Fast Pass reservation (available in one-hour time blocks): $34.99 + tax
