ICTMN Staff
10/25/13

More than 100 ghoulish costumed competitors will vie to kill the competition at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s fifth annual “Scary Rock Star” Costume Contest. Entrants in the three categories of Scary Spooktacular, Sexy, and Pop Culture/Entertainment/Misc. have a shot at $25,000 in cash and prizes (a $5,000 overall top cash prize and $2,500 separate cash prizes for the first place winners).

Amish Zombies, The Exorcist, an Undead Kurt Cobain, Slash, The Terminator and a Sexy Demon Hunter are just some of the entries that will compete in this year’s rewarding and supernatural evening.

Costumes will be judged on creativity, originality and appearance by local media celebrities including Shireen Sandoval of WSVN 7’s Deco Drive, Ninalicia from Y100 and Micaela Hood of the Sun-Sentinel and SouthFlorida.com. Ross Bielejeski from Rock With U Entertainment will once again be the master of “terror”monies for the ghastly gathering.

The Pantry of Broward will also be collecting non-perishable canned foods for the holiday season. Guests who bring five cans will receive one raffle ticket entry to win two tickets to the Alice Cooper Hard Rock Live concert on Sunday, October 27.

Other fiendish photo opportunities can be found at Halloween haunts throughout Seminole Paradise:
