The Krueger Costume Contest
Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Convention
Saturday Aug. 6, 2016 at 1:00PM
The grand prize winner of each category will win two (2) VIP Ultimate Passes for Flashback Weekend 2017 and a special meet and greet with the Man of your Dreams, Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger)*
* Meet and Greet to be held during Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Convention 2017**
*Robert Englund’s 2017 convention appearance subject to his availability.
**Contestants will be pre-selected and notified in advance.
There are two (2) categories in the contest:
Freddy-ettes have become one of the most popular costumes at conventions and during Halloween.
Freddy-ettes are more than a fashion statement. They are showing that they’re not afraid of Freddy. They’re taking his power and using it!
A “Freddy-ette” is a woman (must be age 18 or older) who dresses in a Freddy Krueger style. There are many variations, but a Freddy-ette starts with a sexy red and green sweater and mini-skirt, a Freddy Fedora, and Freddy glove. From there, the design may have variations including:
· Torn opera hose, nylons or leggings,
· Freddy’s boots or stilettos,
· Sometimes no Freddy burn make up at all or sometimes just half of the face is done as Freddy,
· Some may wear press on nails on one hand,
· Strategic tears and slits in the mini skirt and sweater, some of which might reveal their waist and side cleavage.
Freddy has had many looks over the years. It’s up to you to decide upon the “freshly burned” Freddy of “A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET” (1984), or the transformative healing scab and pus Freddy look “A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2” or the Freddy in his prime look of ELM STREET 3 + 4. There is also the “weakened Freddy” look of ELM STREET 5 + 6, or the Demon Freddy of “NEW NIGHTMARE”. Your costume must include the traditional red and green sweater, boots and fedora, and glove. Contestants must be 18 years or older.
ENTRY for the Krueger Costume Contest
Potential contestants will pre-register by completing the official entry form and sending a current photo of them in their Freddy-ette or Freddy look. Flashback Weekend will pre-select 8 contestants in both the Ms. Flashback Freddy-ette and the Mr. Flashback Freddy categories.
