#AnonvilleMurder - post your fun party pics on social media!
The Anonville Manor closed for business years ago due to increasing rumors of eerie hauntings by ill-mannered spirits. A mysterious entrepreneur recently purchased the old hotel, renovated it, and announced that the Manor was free of ghosts and had been restored to the pristine caliber of the good ole’ days when the Manor was the focus of entertainment for everyone. The new owner, choosing to remain anonymous, invited a random group of townspeople to a special pre-grand opening dinner party in the Majestic Ballroom of the hotel. This is where your story begins...
NEED A COSTUME?
PROFESSOR ALBERTA NEWTON
The beautiful Alberta Newton is the penultimate absent-minded professor. Inquire about science and she’ll blow you away with her intellect, inquire about anything else, well…she’s an average Jane.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: A business suit or a lab jacket.
If you looked up narcissism in the dictionary, Sam Chawpalot’s picture would be plastered by the description. Sam is the friendly self-loving neighborhood butcher with a slight over-exaggeration problem.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Apron and butcher’s hat. Plastic butcher knife as an optional prop.
London Wilton is new to Anonville as she is visiting the town to determine where to build her next extravagant hotel. Everyone is growing tired of the media exposing London Wilton’s troubles…especially the townspeople of Anonville! Egotistical & spoiled are the two words that sum up this wild child!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Glamorous evening gown. Small, stuffed dog as an optional prop.
DR. DOCTOR DIJON
Is there a doctor in the house? Yes, of course! It’s Dr. Doctor Dijon! He’s the one to tell you to eat an apple a day…except it won’t keep him far away, as he’s only 3 inches from your face when he’s speaking to you! This close-talking behavior is surprising since the good doc has an intense fear of germs!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Lab coat with a stethoscope as an optional prop. Breath mints are suggested.
MS. SHUGGA ANN FLOWER
Oh, the delicacies that this sweet baker can create! Ms. Shugga Ann Flower is the finest pastry chef in all of Anonville! When she bakes, the sugary aroma travels to the edges of town. The townspeople flock to her bakery to get a bite of her ‘tasties!’
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Chef’s hat and chef’s jacket with rolling pin as an optional prop.
MAYOR PAUL A. TISSHON
There are two sides to Mayor Paul A. Tisshon…and only one of them you would ever care to be on! If you have something to offer Paul, he’s the nicest man you’ll ever meet. However, if you cross him, his mean spirits will rise to the occasion to greet you.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Business suit.
MISS RITA BOOKADAY
Miss Rita Bookaday is not your typical librarian! She’s silly, young, and broke with an aura of mischief surrounding her. Rita is rather unpredictable… that is, unless she’s helping you at the local library.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS:Conservative business casual outfit. Hair in a bun with glasses and a couple of books as optional props.
Ouch! Well, that is what most of Alby Stitchin’s customers are saying nowadays, anyway! This clumsy chap bit off more than he could chew when he decided to be a tailor as he has a huge problem of turning his clients into unwilling pin cushions!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Fashionable or trendy outfit for the era chosen with a pin cushion and measuring tape as props.
Cougar Forest is a tiger on the golf course, but in person, he’s just a mere kitten. He’s shy and reserved but Cougar’s Spanish accent is more than enough to win over the ladies…that is, until he does one of his annoying yet infamous cougar impersonations.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS:Golfing outfit with golf gloves as optional props.
Mister Crimson is the most handsome and charismatic man you will ever see on TV! On camera, he’s the perfect gentleman – ideal in every way – someone you’d love to rush home to meet mom & dad. However, off camera, he is nothing but a lazy couch potato with the most outrageous and appalling manners you’ve ever seen. Ladies, this is one package you don’t want to open!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Red leisure suit or red button up and pants with a non-toxic marker for autographs as an optional prop.
High School Principal
Is it Principal Amethyst or Principal Loony? Well, the latter is what the kids not so lovingly nicknamed her at Anonville High school behind her back. Teens beware: rumor has it that not everyone that is sent to Principal Amethyst’s office makes it back to class…ever again!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS:Conservative business suit.
CHIEF C. R. BADGES
You would never guess that such a meager self-questioning man could climb his way into such a high-ranking position with the police force! Chief C.R. Badges is a kind-hearted gentleman who swore to serve & protect, but sometimes he finds it difficult to do so with a self-esteem approaching absolute zero!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Police uniform. Toy (fake) gun as a prop.
WILLIAM ‘WILLY’ LYALLOT
Criminal Defense Attorney
‘Liar, liar, pants on fire’ was certainly made up about Mr. Willy Lyallot. If freedom is your desire, you want this obnoxious criminal defense attorney on your side of the courtroom, even if you are guilty of murder! Willy makes ambulance chasers look like peace corps volunteers!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Business suit with obnoxious tie. Fake business cards as optional props.
MS. KARA TINN
Don’t even bother buying a hairstyle magazine because if you sit in Ms. Kara Tinn’s styling chair, you’re going to get the one and only cut and style she knows! Who cares if her signature style is outdated by twenty years and all of her customers look identical. Big whoop! This nerdy and flirty hair diva has her trademark hairdo down pat and it’s the best in town…of its kind, that is!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Trendy and fashionable outfit for the era chosen. Hair in an outrageous style. Comb and styling cape as optional props.
TELE N. EWE AND HER CREW
Investigative Field Reporter
Tele N. Ewe is always on top of the latest story… sometimes before they even happen! She’s an ultra-ambitious investigative reporter for the television station CBC and she will stop at nothing to be the first to get the scoop. She’s rarely seen without a troupe of her co-workers from CBC News.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Trendy business suit. Optional props are a notepad and pen and / or a microphone (real or fake).
