    I have not shared my storey line with anyone on this forum, but I thought I would share a little for now.

    My maine charactor is the " Boogie Man ". I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas for a custume?

    I am looking at some sites, but your help is good.

    Mr. Haunt,

    it's rather difficult to steer you in the line of a costume if we don't know more about the character. Think you could elaborate a it?

    Every child knows who the Boogie Man is, and the monster under the bed. If you don't, I will tell you.

    Who lives in your closet?

    Give up?

    The Boogie Man

    The Boogie Man has haunted kids rooms for ages. Maybe even their nightmares. Who here never was affraid of the man in your closet or the monster under your bed? I know I was!

    Mr. Haunt,

    I KNOW who the Boogeyman is. He's been in several different movies including two that are self titled. However, again, it is difficult to suggest, at least for me, a costume that would fit into your theme for him.
    Maybe somebody else will have more luck.....

    The Boogie Man visited my son today....
    he has a terrible head cold now and a
    nose full of boogies....
    now THAT'S scary!!

    funning aside..
    how about the boogie man from Nightmare Before Christmas?

    It seems that would be a simple DIY costume...

    I think they would like you to tell them what the scene will be like. Will he be behind a wall or drop panel? Or out in the crowd, so a full size costume will be needed. Will it be dark, or with strobe lighting, or bright lights? If its bright lighting (or brighter than pitch black) than you need a really good costume.

    Boogie men hide under the bed. SO, he would be covered with lint , cobwebs and such. I think his face would be dominated by a long, thin , ant-eater type of a nose, "hose-Nose", if you will?
    His chest would be rather flat (for fitting under the bed.)
    He might be wearing a smalll Captain's hat for when he encounters water beds.
    Things hanging from his body could be dirty underware (thrown and forgotten under the bed) Odd socks, an odd shoe, covered with webs and lint and hair.
    Then of course there is the coiled old bed spring sticking out of where his left eye used to be.
    The weapon of his choice would be a rolled up Playboy magazine from 1963.

    Thats a good one Jim, LOL!!!.

    The set he will be in is called the Boogie Mans Layer.

    This is the end set scene for my haunt. I am thinking it will be well lighted. The actor will not be behined any walls. He will be in the same room as the people walking through. There will be some cage's that will have kidnapped kid's in them yelling for help.

    It will kinda look like a studio type appartment. Small kitchen, bed, eating table, cages, and dome other effect's and prop's such as body parts.

    Like in the murder movies his apartment should have some incriminating pictures tacked to his walls, like maybe a lot of pictures of extremely homely women. (Who all happen to look like him, except for the dress and the long hair.)
    Are we having FUN yet?
