This afternoon Spooky Empire announced the addition of two pretty big names to their upcoming thriller-con at the Tampa Convention Center.

Shock rocker Alice Cooper and Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson have been added to the already stacked lineup, which consists of names like director Clive Barker, actress Mia Farrow, and  “Jason Voorhees” actor C.J. Graham.

“On Friday, November 1st Elvira, will have a rare appearance in full costume for a special photo-op” says SPooky Empire in a statement. “She will be signing autographs as herself, Cassandra Peterson, on Saturday and Sunday. For one day only, on Saturday, November 2nd, Alice Cooper will have his photo-op with fans. He will also be signing autographs on Friday and Saturday only.”
