Newegg is Halloween Central for Costumes and DIY Haunted Houses

2015/10/13 Press Release

October 13, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA – Newegg, the top tech-focused e-retailer in North America, today unveiled some fantastic Halloween deals, with deep discounts on Halloween costumes, party props and DIY haunted house components. The company also announced its sponsorship of a family-run haunted house in the Los Angeles area.

In total, Newegg has more than 150,000 different costumes for all ages. From Frozen’s Elsa to Game of Thrones and everything in between, Newegg has affordable costumes to suit anyone. Newegg also offers a diverse catalogue of Halloween accessories and decor for the DIY haunted house enthusiast. Whether you’re just decorating the front door or assembling an elaborate, multi-room haunted house, Newegg has what you need.

“Many of our customers are makers at heart, and Halloween gives them the opportunity to showcase their DIY skills by creating elaborate costumes and haunted spaces to entertain friends and neighbors,” said James Wu, COO of Newegg. “In that spirit, we are happy to lend our support to Richard and Christina Lai who annually turn their home into one of the best haunted houses in the greater Los Angeles area.”

Each year since 2008, Rowland Heights residents Richard and Chrstina Lai have transformed their home into an elaborate haunted house. The spectacle has drawn a great deal of media attention in Southern California and especially in their local community. As former Newegg employees, Richard and Christina naturally sourced many of the required materials from Newegg.com. When Newegg learned of this, the company decided to support their cause by donating products, and by soliciting product donations from many of its vendor partners, including MSI gaming laptops, Annke home surveillance systems, Toynk costumes & props, Corsair speakers and LG monitors.

All told, the haunted house is one of the most technologically sophisticated in the area, complete with a central command center from which the entire haunted house is managed. Richard and Christina can customize the level of intensity for each attendee, using a sophisticated surveillance network to ensure all visitors are having an enjoyable experience. This makes it possible to dial down the fear-factor for children and the elderly, while maximizing the intensity for thrill-seekers.

“Shortly after we moved to the area, one of our Halloween enthusiast neighbors moved away and left a void in the neighborhood, so we took it upon ourselves to build on their legacy with a haunted house of our own,” said Richard Lai. “With the support of Newegg and their partners, this year we are able to expand the scope of our haunted house far beyond what we ever thought was possible.”

Construction on this year’s haunted house began in early September, with friends, neighbors and now corporate sponsors lending a helping hand. Newegg is tracking the build progress start-to-finish, providing regular updates as well as all the Halloween essentials at http://promotions.newegg.com/marketplace/15-4496/lp/index.html.

This year’s haunted house will be open 7 p.m.- midnight Oct. 30 and 31, and 7-9 p.m. on Nov. 1. Admission is free, however donations are accepted. Visit http://www.rchaunted.com/home/ for more information.
