In which I play dress-up

I'm working part-time at a haunted house, this season.

Since I can't commit to every night (which would make playing a main character in the storyline a bit difficult), I'm playing a generic spectre in the graveyard scene. It's what I did, last year, and it was quite fun. I dressed up as a faceless (OK, veiled) Victorian widow - no blood, no gore, no zombie makeup. I didn't say a word, but I managed to scare the everloving crap out of quite a number of people.


My favorite thing to do was to stand in the shadow behind the fog machine and then walk forward when a group came through. The fog would collect in my cloak, and so as I moved, it was pushed along by the fabric and gave the illusion that I had just appeared out of a dramatic poof of vapor.
