This is where your story begins...
NEED A COSTUME?
Grim Reaper & President of the International Monster Association (IMA)
Grimoth Jones is the Grim Reaper and President of the International Monster Association (IMA). S/he is a loving comedian and loves to burst into song whenever the time’s right.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Black hooded cape and toy sickle as an optional prop. White face makeup with black accents on the face.
Pyra Med is the ruthless prankster of the group. Pyra isn’t respected by many of the other monsters as s/he is known to lash out and do anything to get attention.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: White / off-white clothing underneath with gauze wrapped around the body (not too tight!). Face painted white with black accents.
Vorhee Myers is the obsessive and mean-spirited serial killer. Vorhee is known to be overly judgmental of others and enjoys spreading horrible rumors about fellow colleagues of the International Monster Association.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Blue coverall jumpsuit. A hockey mask and a toy knife as props.
Slimey Green is the hyperactive swamp creature from the Glop Lagoon. S/he is a happy-go-lucky creature and loves to perform rap songs for the group about current events.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Green clothing (shirt/pants). Soak gauze in green food coloring, remove and allow drying for 2 days. Drape green gauze from clothing. Green face makeup with black accents.
Howlie Moon is not a monster to invite to a nice dinner at your home. S/he has the most horrible manners and his/her high-pitched shrieking laughter will send even the most tolerant monster into agony!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Button-down flannel shirt and khaki pants. Place fake hair coming out of shirt at wrist and collar. Paint face like a wolf and purchase a werewolf kit for the ears and claws.
Pummy Kenface is the overly friendly and nerdy pumpkin head fiend. Pummy is the one to get the party started with his/her innovative dance moves.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Black shirt and pants with face makeup as a pumpkin or a pumpkin mask.
The overly mysterious Dragula is the only one of the monsters who actually cares what other monsters think. Dragula is constantly stressing about others and some find this to be quite bizarre behavior…especially from a monster.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Vampire/ Vampira costume. (Black) hair slicked back. White face makeup and fake vampire teeth. Tiny red stickers as props to ‘bite’ monsters with.
Livan Gann is the notorious egotistical zombie. This one-upping undead is the ‘one to avoid’ at the Annual Monster Summit! That is, unless you want to hear about how magnificent Livan is and how s/he’s done everything more and better than you have.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any shredded/ ripped clothing. White face makeup with black and red accents. Hair in a big mess.
Giant Gorilla Beast
You shouldn’t believe anything that Royal Pong says as s/he is a known compulsive liar! The emotionless Royal Pong can look you straight in the eyes and tell you the most outrageous tall tale…and you’ll believe it every time. Don’t fall victim to this furry creature.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Gorilla costume or black shirt/pants and a gorilla mask. Or…black shirt/pants and face makeup as a gorilla.
Tankenstein is an intellectual perfectionist that is known to have one too many manners - if you ever thought that was possible. This monster is one to cater to your every need…and this tends to drive the other monsters batty after a while!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Frankenstein costume. Or, face and hands painted green with black accents. Fake bolts (made out of foil) adhered to the neck with costume prop glue.
The spicy Onyx Blazen is a very powerful witch with severe anger management problems. This is sometimes a scary combination…especially considering her specialty is the powers of fire! Onyx is a strong leader of her Coven and is very well-respected in the magical community.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Witch costume - black robes, witch’s hat. Face painted green. Wand and cauldron (with dry ice cube inside) as optional props. (Make sure dry ice is handled according to instructions.)
With his/her eight legs and ultra-creepy persona…Octavus is the utterly perfect stereotype of a monster! S/he is the quintessential monster who is outgoing, organized and terrifying to boot!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Black shirt/pants with 4 fake arm/legs coming out of the torso. You can make these by stuffing socks and then attaching them to the shirt by stitching them on with needle/thread.
Yeti Berg is the quirky monster who terrorizes the thrill-seeking humans of the Himalayas. S/he has a weird aversion to the word ‘you’ which sends him/her into a weird shaking fit every time s/he hears it!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Wear all white and purchase some cotton from a hobby supply store. Apply the cotton everywhere possible. White face makeup with blue accents.
Bogarti Bubonic is a known kleptomaniac so watch your belongings if you’ll be in his/her presence for long. Not only do children around the world need to worry about Bogarti scaring them in the middle of the night...they have the added worry of their toys disappearing!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any scary mask with black robes. Fake claws on the fingers as optional props.
DR. HECKYL ! MR. JIVE
Dr. Heckyl is the typical crazy as a loon mad scientist with an underlying sugary-sweet facade. However, during a full moon, this doc’s altered ego is a monstrous mean-spirited intimate space violator by the name of Mr. Jive.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Lab coat and hair in an absolute mess. A scary face mask as a prop for Mr. Jive.
Minot Orman is the neighborhood gossip with rather greedy tendencies. This is one beastly brute that puts meaning in the term ‘watch your back’ as s/he is concerned about one and only one thing…Minot Orman.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Large bull horns on the head. These horns can be purchased or made out of paper-maché, painted and glued to a headband. Brown shirt/pants and a fake rapier. Brown face makeup and a fake nose ring on the nose.
Teddie Frugal is the penny-pinching and obnoxiously bossy nightmare haunter. In any group, Teddie has to have the final word and if s/he doesn’t get his/her way…somebody will have to pay…in their nightmares.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Tattered, oversized striped sweater. A fedora hat and fake knife claws on one hand.
The loony but fun-loving Apari Shon is great to have at any gathering as his/her random animal impersonations keep everyone entertained. This witty spectral is the most predictable of the bunch as you always know where you stand with him/her.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Ghost costume - white sheet with two holes for the eyes and one for the mouth (to breathe)!
OZBOURNE OF THE DARK
Lord / Lady of Darkness
Ozbourne is the egotistical Lord/Lady of Darkness and a highly annoying constant rhymer. There is never a dull moment if Ozbourne’s around as s/he is constantly performing his/her insufferable rhymes anything and everything.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Black clothing, black cape. Dark sunglasses and gothic jewelry.
Oculon Mono is the most brilliant monster in the International Monster Association. Said to be a genius, this is the one monster to go to when you are in need of sound advice. You better listen carefully, however, as Oculon can only speak in a whisper.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Giant eye affixed to the middle of the forehead. Face painted purple. Purple clothing.
