Nick Wolfe started his epic journey into the world of special effects makeup, with his identical twin brother, Brian Wolfe, by drawing dinosaurs and superheroes when they were young. It was that inborn enthusiasm for art and illusion that fueled their meteoric rise in the world of movie makeup and body painting. In 1998, they brought their considerable talents to the prosthetic department of Universal Studios Florida, and quickly made names for themselves in the industry.

HAuNTcon Sponsor – Vortex Chillers


HAuNTcon is proud to announce our lanyard sponsor, Vortex Chillers.

Vortex Chillers uses a unique new process to produce for the first time, truly affordable low lying fog products as well as natural energy fog curtains for both home and commercial use. No $10 per minute CO2 costs, no $13,000 investment needed, our fog chillers use plain water based ice cubes and a typical fog machine to create super-chilled real fog. Using our exclusive Rock Star Ultra Low Lying fog fluid, the result is a stunning display of odorless snow-white colored, ground hugging fog that is 10 degrees colder than any low-fog generators on the market. Meaning the fog stays on the ground lower, longer and at a fraction of the cost.

HAuNTcon Sponsor – Darklight Systems

HAuNTcon is proud to announce our t-shirt sponsor, Darklight Systems.

Darklight was founded in spring of 2010 as a manufacturer of special effects lighting equipment catering to the themed attraction industry. We specialize in illumination in low-light and space constrained environments where traditional theatrical luminaires are not suitable. The “Precision” series of LED fixtures were developed with compactness, safety, modularity, and ease of use in mind, allowing lighting designers to illuminate environments that were not previously possible with larger fixtures.

In 2011, we expanded our product line to include self-developed compact controllers that add a dynamic element to our luminaires.

In late 2012, we launched a new line of products catering to the professional lighting and architectural markets called the “Gantom” series. The industry recognized Gantom iQ, an ultra-compact image projector, spearheads our focus into the specified lighting market. Our award winning products have since become the “secret weapon” of many lighting designers and industry experts and have been installed in a wide range of applications including theme parks, museums, bars & clubs, casinos, and haunted attractions all around the world.
