For the most part, cons are filled to the brim with geeksphere entertainment. Daleks weave around a countless array of Supernatural and Harry Potter cosplayers while anime art is sold at every corner. There’s more to life than pop culture, however, and Spooky Empire’s Retro Con is here to serve. While the April rendition of the event is a much smaller version than the main October one, there’s still plenty to capture a horror lover’s eye. Line up to meet shock rocker Alice Cooper or Nightmare on Elm Street’s Heather Langenkamp, among other celebrity guests, but remember to set some money aside to explore booths that sell everything from clothing to home decor to sometimes even coffee. Between the costume contest and the traditional Zombie Walk, you’ll find something for your dark, macabre heart to fawn over.

5 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. Saturday-Sunday, April 1-3 | Wyndham Orlando Resort, 8001 International Drive | spookyempire.com | $35-$65
