Scare Your Face Off Fest IX
Saturn Birmingham | Birmingham, Alabama | October 26th, 2018
Recap + Cultural Photography
Ghouls, goblins, and other assorted creatures of the night descended on Saturn Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama on October 26th for the 9th edition of DIY Birmingham’s “Scare Your Face Off Fest”. The annual Halloween celebration featured a wide variety of creative and catchy costumes while an assortment of Birmingham based bands and musical talents performed cover sets for a wide range of bands. Like previous editions, this year’s Scare Your Face Off Fest was a rousing success and a highlight of the Halloween season in the Magic City.
I had to miss out on last year’s Scare Your Face Off Fest so it was nice to get back in the groove and photograph this year’s event. Personally speaking, my two favorite costumes were Pee-Wee Herman with Large Marge and Connie the Hormone Monstress from “Big Mouth”, complete with a bottle of bubble bath. For the full effect, read that line in Maya Rudolph’s voice.
Anyways… these photos represent costumes and action up until the cover set of “The Replacements”. I had to dip out after their performance so, yeah, that’s why things come to an end at that point. They are also presented in linear order.
