Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

So it's set. The theme this year for our haunted house room is "Haunted Forest". It may not be as conventionally scary as our vampire room last year or the zombie room the year before, but I'm super excited. Each year we do it, we try to break the record set the previous year for the number of people we make cry going through our room. Now it's time for me to think of how I'm going to interpret the theme for my character....should I be a haunted tree? A witch? I was also thinking of being someone who was THAT would be pretty scary, if I could pull it off without actually hanging myself.

Decisions, decisions.

If any of you are interested in participating this year, let me know and I'll give you the details.

It's really fun...and this is coming from someone who personally hates getting scared.

Haunted Forest is pretty broad. So pretty much anything from any creepy folktale goes. You could be zombie Jakob Grimm. Or zombie big bad wolf after the woodcutter got to him. Or that girl with the cursed shoes...she had to cut off her feet because the shoes wouldn't let her stop dancing.

Maybe you could team up with one of the guys and be some sort of scary Hansel and Gretel.

As for hanging, you could build a rig (or have someone help you) with straps that hold you up by the chest, legs, and shoulders. The straps have a metal or nylon "eye" that the rope goes through. The rope is what hangs from the ceiling. Then a fake noose goes around your neck only. No part of the noose around your neck is attached to anything to avoid any risk of actually hanging. If you position everything right, it should look like you're hanging from your neck. Then you make yourself up so heavily that you look fake. Come to life and scare the shitcakes out of people!

There are many directions you could go, of course. My personal preference is for you to go in any direction that would continue to generate primal photographs of mouthing other chicks and blood and what-not.

Just sayin'.
