The Mask We Wear

I took a break from

 

Inktober, to grieve my awesome Grandmother, who passed away this past Tuesday.   She was a wonderful and loving woman.

Here is the last 10 years of costumes in chrono order – this year’s will be revealed soon!

 

 

 

Inktober 11: Whispering Walls

The Tale of the Whispering Walls – SUCH a good episode that has everything: haunted house, painting that move, babies that turn to snakes, creepy carnival room, and a ghost dance party.

whispering walls

 

It’s a full moon on leap year, which means the dead can come back and party all night long, but one particular ghost, who is kind of like a creepy John Getz (who is already kind of creepy, so it works really well) wants to do more than party. Raymond the ghost insists on trapping passersby and taking their souls before the sunsets, and almost succeeds by possessing Louis the babysitter.  Luckily, one of the ghosts thinks the girl child looks like her daughter and she opens a door, and ghosts can be in a breeze i guess?  Oh well.  They escape and that’s all that matters.

Xtra-props for the amazing 90s outfits in this one.

Inktober: 10/10

Inktober Day 10: The Frozen Ghost

the frozen ghost

 

I still remember the night this one first aired perfectly, because it was a “special”, mostly because it was starring our favorite Nickelodeon teen.  She plays babysitter to very wealthy boy Charles (though she’s clearly a terrible babysitter).  There is nothing scarier than a child ghost and poor Charles has one following him around and Clarissa Explains it All refuses to believe him! (to be fair, this is three years before she becomes Sabrina so I guess she’s still a skeptic).   In the end they help the ghost and find gold and Charles gets dirty for the first time in his life and its great, and it’s all a happily ever after.   Except, you know, for the child who froze to death in a log.

 

Also shout-out again to Kristen, because this was her story, and she has DA BEST ghost stories, though sadly this is the last time we will see her as this was the her last story in the show.

No Mister, accent on the Doh

Inktober Day 9 ! Today’s epsiode:  The Tale of the Dark Dragon.

inktober 9

 

VERY IMPORTANT:  This story is told by Eric, but he uses Gary’s character Sardo (that’s SAR-DOH, no mister, accent on the Doh) as a gift for “gary’s birthday” Sardo is the only interesting thing Gary ever really creates sadly, but he’s a good memorable character for sure.

Here is yet another example, our third so far, of “Get possessed, get a leather jacket and now your hot” – Are You Afraid of the Dark certainly was not shy about how they feel I guess.

HOWEVER – in this particular example, the more beautiful you become, the more your inner ugliness will come through.  Keith has to learn how to fight his own insecurities and appreciate the people that truly love him, or he will be a monster forever.

 

Inktober #8: The Prom Queen

Ok, here we are, I made it an entire week, and we are here now and I am so happy, because tonight my friends, we are talking about:  The Prom Queen.

Inktober 8

 

The story is about 3 new friends who meet in a cemetery and try to work out the Mystery of the Prom Queen – but one of them has a secret they are not sharing…

If I had to pick a #1 favorite it would probably be this episode.  It has everything.  And BEST PART?  It is totally based on a true story:

Told, again, by Kristen, cause she has all my favorite stories, and she dresses up like a ghost for it, cause she’s the best.

And also, fun fact, the boyfriend that comes back from the dead to finally pick her up?  Dean from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice :)  266209

 

Inktober #7 – The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

If there is one thing we learn from watching Are You Afraid of the Dark, it’s that;  when you’re possessed by something, you instantly become hotter and cooler.  We saw it a few days ago with geeky Pam turning into her hot Aunt Dora in The Tale of the Hungry Hounds, and we see it here with Dean.

Dean looks deep into the eyes of an evil serpent sculpture belonging to some sort of ghost god, and instantly becomes his “apprentice” – he also instantly goes from being plain nothing-going-for-him boy to a cool leather-jacket wearing hottie.  That is, of course, until his BFF Alex stops it (behind every evil sorcerer is a woman trying to stop them from destroying the world, amirite?)

Inktober Day: the Tale of the Captured Souls

Day #6, on a mini vacay, but still going, i bring you an episode that still haunts me (i dont like mirrors in my bedroom for one…)

Nothing creepier than a creepy old guy who is acting as a creepy young boy cause he still peoples youth through mirrors. 20181006_150214.jpg

 

Told by #badgirlkiki.  Kiki is awesome.  She definitely the coolest person in The Midnight Society because shes herself and doesnt have to try (like frank).

Inktober 5: Ma Petit Rouge

This is also another favorite, cause who doesn’t love ghost-posession stories. Today I give you:  “The Tale of the Hungry Hounds”

Untitled2

On a very boring summer today, two girls play with an ouija board.  By the end of the day, one of them is definitely posessed by her dead aunts ghost. Why?  Cause she wants to see her fox and she has to feed her dogs.   I mean I get it, if I was going to haunt or posess someone, it would probably be to see my cats.

Told by Kristen, who you may also know as Sally, Nancy or even Cher from the tv version of Clueless!  (I totally forgot to draw her though, my bad!)

Kids: dont do Ouija unless you want you aunts ghost posessing you – Just Say No!
