    I play various roles. This year's roles have included:

    A mage
    An evil castle guard
    An evil court jester
    A zombie

    If you didn't guess. One of our houses has a medieval theme.

    So what do you guys play at your haunts?

    I guess I am "The Teller Of The Tales" & Resident potential psycho-path who just spent the last 20 years creating this house so I could trap and kidnapp YOU! (Or so it seems to be to alot of people?)

    And that's your screen name, too? What an amazing coincidence!

    sometimes you just can't resist...even when the voices in your head are telling you to.

    I got hired to do makeup, but found myself acting as well from day one. Various characters--

    vampire
    hunchback
    doctor
    mad scientist
    exterminator

    After I put together a Nosferatu I got put with the vampires a lot. Most vampires in most places I've seen or heard of are classic Dracs, Buffy-style, pretty(a la Anne Rice) or 'drooly'(meaning they, for some reason, are incapable of wiping their mouths--I know it's for a bit of extra gore, but it never sits well with me). I wanted something different. Large pointed ears(and I mean large), long clawed fingernails, and teeth that looked more like they'd rip your throat out rather than giving you those tasteful punctures.

    That one became my fave because people weren't expecting it at all.

    I also worked as a 'breaker'. I'm sure other houses use this system. Replacement actors that roam the attraction giving people breaks.

    That was a hard character. You've got to fit whatever spots you're covering for--or be creative about why you don't fit.

    One night, I had to break, as one of several, our 'twisted little girl' room. The distorted, fanged prosthetic and my tattered robe bore no relation to anything to do with the room or the little girl...until.

    A mother and son came into the room and I loomed out at them from the hiding spot--which looked something like a closet. The boy screamed and grabbed his mother saying, 'it's the monster in the closet!!'--and THAT gave me an idea--I bent down and growled 'not anymore, I've been demoted to imaginary friend--wanna play?' And I twisted the head off a doll.

    I guess I liked breaker, too

    During the old JC's Haunted House I was "The Guy Who Actually Scared Our Tour Guide", infront of his customers he was leading and narrating the house for.
    This guy was high-strung and reacted memorably when scared, everybody laughed alot!
    He was also very theatrical in his delivery so when he got scared it did not fit his theatrical character at all (making it even funnier!)
    It was so simple, he would give a huge introduction to "The Monster Behind The Bathroom Door!", he would swing it open ..and nothing?
    I would be standing, breathing down the back of his neck!
    Of course I couldn't be as noteworthy as an insurance man who was standing urinating in the foul ,broken toilet there when the door was swung open for everyone to see!
    Lucky he had on a full-head Mummy mask!
    The odor rising up from that commode was deadly!
    (Now you know why I chose to be sneaking up behind someone and not in that bathroom!) PEE-YOO!

    I am the do everything guy.
    Build,manage crew,run the make up department, and my favorite act!

    4 chracters as of now.

    Zombie type charcter named Rage in the cage

    Last years freak was Fruitopia the cross dressing hilbilly

    I also play another hillbilly named booger, booger was created for acting in cold weather climates when guest acting at drafty haunts and during the frigid Transworld weekend. Booger is a pryo,loves to play with fire and light all the pretty girls on fire because they smell nice when their skin melts!
    Lastly my crowd favorite, Babyman
    Babyman sports fuzzy lion slippers, stripped socks, little boys t-shirt stretched very tightly to get on, and of course a diaper and a really saggy one at that. Half gallon of water fills it when it's on for that droopy leaky look. Then i plaster the diaper in peanut butter and chocolate sauce and blood, pair of nasty gloves,make up, spiked hair and lots of toy props!
    Most of my characters are different from the norm as you can tell i shot for the freak show look for sure!

    Gunna dress up for Transworld?
    I was laughing, thinking about it, maybe dressing like "Dog" the Bounty hunter"
    (That ship sank way too many years ago for him to ever find!)

    My present "role" is owner and oh-so genial host of The Baxter Avenue Morgue, who welcomes the visitors to "the family business" and informs them of the rules they must follow that may (or may not) help them make it safely through the tour.

    Back when I first entered into the haunt biz via the Louisville Jaycees (roughly 30 years ago!), I played the following characters:

    1) The Wolfman (which became my trademark role for several
    years and I replayed most recently in 2000 at
    Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom's "Fright Fest".)

    2) The Gorilla (also known as "Super Ape", I'd escape from my
    cage by bending the "steel bars" and charging
    at customers.)

    3) Insane Asylum Inmate (some say I had a natural gift for this
    part...*chuckle*)

    4) Quasimodo
