Spooky Empire recently wrapped up its second-annual May-Hem event, keeping Halloween fans at bay until haunt season rolls around after summer ends. Though the overall theme focuses on the spookier side of things, with attendees showing up in creepy costumes and plenty of macabre merchandise to be found, the celebrities who came out for this year’s event spanned all media types, not only including roles in horror, but also action, comedy, reality TV and even a bit of rock ‘n’ roll.
The unique highlight of May-Hem 2012 was the Mucklebones Monster Museum, owned and displayed by a local private collector of horror displays, featuring lifelike and life-sized versions of Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, the Mummy, and more of Universal’s classic monsters plus a few more contemporary characters.
It was all part of the event that took place at the Wyndham Orlando Resort from May 25-27, 2012 on International Drive, highlighted in the video and photos below.

Though this was by no means Spooky Empire’s final event in Orlando, it was the last time one will be held at the Wyndam Orlando Resort, which is set to close later this year to be replaced by a retail and dining complex. Beginning in October, Spooky Empire’s Ultimate Horror Weekend and May-Hem events will be held further south on International Drive at the Hilton Orlando, a far nicer home for the frequently fun festivities.
