About

Haus of Mayhem

What was Haus of Mayhem originally?

It was an idea brought to life by cosplayer and burlesque performer May Hemmer in 2015 as a production company. The goal was to provide burlesque events that fit no specific genre or theme. It was also to provide a space where performers of varying levels can grace the stage and show their stuff.

However over the years after having a family and moving to a different part of the country, she felt it was time to do something new! Thus the revolution has begun!

What is Haus of Mayhem NOW?

After moving to North Carolina, May decided it was time for a change. Not just for herself but for the community. Haus will now help facilitate the growth and nurturing of cosplay in a safe and encouraging environment, provide social and business networking events, produce burlesque for all genres of the art and help foster the growth of performers and artists of all backgrounds. This includes but not limited to: cosplay meetups, workshops, meet and greets, and more!
