Haunt Couture 2019 – The BIG Reveal!

There isn’t anything to be afraid of, or is there?


Feeling brave?? Watch the theme reveal here!

On Wednesday, August 28th, at the office of DLR Group, the theme for the 2019 Haunt Couture was revealed.


Is one of them yours?

From the fear of deep water to a phobia of insects, the categories were revealed in a spectacular display.

Teams and sponsors gathered in the lobby in anticipation of the reveal. Ominous black balloons decorated the stairway. Upon the signal, team leads were instructed to ascend the stairs and select a balloon, not realizing they were sealing their fate. Once everyone had their selection, they were instructed to burst their balloon, resulting in a shower of red confetti and scrolls naming their fears.
