Halloween day's over but by the habit here, there's often more parties coming after. One interesting label we give these time-killer, is "warmth". At cold winter, getting together and dance or games with the music makes the time flies! I have got some ghost themes costumes this year following the oriental culture. They are scary and fun.
I shared an old ghost story with friends last night. Believe it or not, it was one of the most impressive for me. The plot is like this: once a family, married couple, and the husband's mother lived togeter at a big house in the countryside. The wife didn't enjoy the time with the old lady too much, because of the different interests, habits, etc. One day she went to market, and saw an artist selling his paintings at cheap price. There's one picture looking quite like the countryside they lived, and similar style house. She asked the artist to paint for her 12 more, following exactly the same environment, except that from the second painting, gradually you could see a graveyard at the mountain behind the house, slowly showed the corner of a chiffon, then more and more, then a ghost in ancient costumes, climbed out of it, and the last painting was showing the ghost lock at their own door.
So after getting them, the wife hanged the first painting in the living room, her husband saw it too without comments. Then every week, she changed to a new painting, while her husband was away for work, then changed back after he's back home. His mother noticed the changes in the painting and was really scared, but every time her son told her it was alright.
So she has finally, picked up a night with thunderstorm, to show the final painting, then played a pre-recorded door knock sounds. These together scared the old lady to death. The wife paused the music, but the door knocks continued then the door opened and she saw the same ghost showed in the picture, standing at her door.
When the husband's back home, his mother has already left, while her wife went insane.
Is it scary? I actually got really scared when read it. But it's only story. In the oriental culture, we believe that we have no fear of ghosts, if we don't do anything wrong.
It's a pity that my morphsuit makes me very unique among these complex ghost halloween costumes, and they thought I am one kind of workers there, because the waiters and waitress were wearing green color too, just with hats and skirts. Anyway, I did have a lot of fun, so do my friends.
