A few weeks ago while in San Francisco I went with friends to a haunted house, in March. Naturally, it was in the Castro.
Inside, the haunted house was populated with human actors in costume that played all of the scary roles. Zombies, mummies, spiders, and such. One of the best costumes that I saw though was a clergyman, depicted above. He had boxed wine and a white rabbit – fantastic props, and was taking photos with people.
The entire thing was an interesting spectacle, and it strikes me as the type of event that you would have a very difficult time finding anywhere else.
