Dead of Night

Dead of Night

For far too long the Dark Art / Horror and Paranormal Communities in Australia and New Zealand have been forgotten, over shadowed and left to fend for itself – like that one weird Uncle at the Christmas Party who you don’t quite remember his name but watches you intently from the corner of the room.

That is until now – until the launch of the Dead of Night – the official closing celebration of Shocka-Con Australia.

Dead of Night will quickly become THE Social Event of the year for the Dark Arts / Horror and Paranormal Industry across Australia and New Zealand. With hundreds of avid supporters joining together for an evening of music, competitions, dancing and socializing.

VIP Ticket for Dead of Night: $75

Limited to the first 75 registrants VIP Ticket holders will find themselves with entry to a special VIP section, receive VIP Fast Access with the ability to enter 30-minutes before regular guests.

Plus wait staff to handle getting your drinks. If you are only living for one night – Dead of Night – is the one to target.

Dead of Night Costume Contest

As this is the last event on the Shocka-Con Australia calendar as the convention draws to a close, and the ghouls and goblins who have found their way to Junee prepare to crawl back into whatever dark crevasse that they had found their way out of – it provides a great opportunity for one last competition, one final get together with Horror and Paranormal supporters – and therefore we are excited to announce our costume competition.

All attendees are encouraged to come in costume. With categories being:

Scariest Character

It’s not rocket science – it’s right there in the name! We’re looking for the SCARIEST character at Dead of Night. Bring the Fear.

Best Zombie

We’re looking for the creepiest, coolest ghoul of the night – could it be you?

Most Unique

We know there are endless costumes you can buy from stores. But we want your very best creation. Dip into that darkside of your mind and come up with your very own unique, scary character.

Best Couple or Group Costumes

Sometimes it takes more than one character to execute a great concept, and that’s what this category celebrates, whether you’re going full Gomez and Morticia, or you and your friends are appearing as the whole Scooby gang!


As this is the final event of the Shocka-Con Australia convention we want to go out with a bang and want you to all join us.

Therefore as part of our Costume Contest prizes will be up for grabs including $250 for each of the winners in the categories listed above. Plus… we will be awarding a ‘Best of Show’ to the best costume of the night who will be taking home an additional $500 and a Slasher Award for the best Costume at Shocka-Con Australia 2018.
