Fake fur, wigs and false teeth were prevalent in Brighton this Halloween as the Grovelands office was thrown into a whirlwind of greetings and photo-taking.
Fake fur, wigs and false teeth were prevalent as the office was thrown into a whirlwind of greetings and photo-taking. Absurd scenes began to unfold; a witch’s cat answered the phone in an almost uncannily human manner; a masked psycho killer became bored of his chainsaw and was instead spotted on an iPad; a small orphan girl, the eponymous character from the horror film, was found in charge of the accounts.
Mark Davies looked scarily human until a trickle of blood from the corner of his mouth gave him away as the apparition he truly is, although even in the afterlife he continued to have a penchant for the Financial Times. The small, pale-faced girl from “The Grudge” appeared sitting quietly through the excitement with her head bowed and caused one of the poor workers from elsewhere in the office building to comment that he was scared of “getting stuck in the lift with that thing”.
Even ghosts get hungry, and as lunchtime rolled around the supernatural sensations got the party into full swing presided over by a brilliantly made-up ‘Cobweb Lady’ Ella Tugwell and the ‘fangtastic’ Anna Haigh who even put together a spooky soundtrack. The monsters guzzled enough sweets to satisfy even the greediest of trick-or-treaters, and then they relaxed, satisfied they had caused enough mischief to last the rest of the year.
