Ghoulwill Ball is on Saturday. There will be dancing, a cash bar, and a photo booth. And there will be costumes. Lots of them. To celebrate all the creative costuming, the night includes a few costume contests for categories like Best Group Theme, People’s Choice, and Most Creative Use of Goodwill Finds. Winners get $150 gift cards from VISA or Goodwill NNE. And the Grand Prize winner gets a $250 Goodwill NNE gift card. Either way, the event is the ideal time to show off your genius Halloween skills. And if you’re, say, not all that creative, take a look at some of the great costume’s from Ghoulball’s past. Steal an idea, or use them as a launchpad to come up with your own amazing idea. Like Zombie Popeye! Or Clockwork Orange Ninjas!
Sure, scary movies have their place. And haunted houses are a Halloween-season must. But often, the scariest things are the things that you create in your head. And scary stories are perfect for igniting the kind of imagination that keeps you up nights. Now that’s creepy. There will be no special effects during Tales of Terror at Victoria Mansion. No blood. No realistic-looking corpses. The storytellers don’t need them. The tales alone will haunt you.
Last year I asked all of you to submit your favorite Halloween costume and the response was overwhelming. Let’s try and top last year, shall we?
