Cosplay: When Horror Icons Go on Holiday

3 Minute Read
Jul 9 2021

Even the baddies deserve a break at the beach – let’s catch up with Freddy, Jason, Michael, and Pinhead!

It’s not easy being the bad guy. Misunderstood, disenfranchised, hated everywhere you go… How are you supposed to work on your tan line without a chance to get away? This week, we’re following our favorite Hollywood Horror characters as they take a day off to chill at the beach.

This hilarious photoshoot popped up on my feed a few weeks ago, and I couldn’t resist reposting it. June marks the time of year that my closest friends start the countdown to spooky town, so how best to ramp up for October and the excitement around Halloween than with a bunch of ridiculous, irreverent cosplays taking their air at a shiny beach. It’s a picture-perfect moment, and we hope you enjoy the laughs.
