Halloween and World Puppetry Day are almost six months apart, and that’s obviously not a coincidence. Nope, both days can strike fear in even the bravest human beings. But who doesn’t love being so scared they could lose consciousness? Well, most people, but not you.
You’re a Haunted House virtuoso, and because October has long passed, you’ve been urging for a deep, guttural scream. So, this creepy day gave you the perfect opportunity to scare the snot of yourself. Feeling adventurous, you had the terrific idea of creating your own puppet gallery. You’ve had this dream ever since you watched Slappy on Goosebumps.
Research for your happy haunt was exhilarating. The government worker watching your Internet browsing history must be shaking in his non-slip Sketchers after the eerie rabbit hole you went down. You researched the spookiest and the downright most evil-looking puppets you could find. Ventriloquist dummies are obviously the worst, and that’s not just referring to Jeff Dunham’s problematic puppetry. Hello, have you seen Magic? Talking dummies are so… yikes.
But even the vilest of dummies pales in comparison to an old-timey marionette. Have you seen one of those things? Those hollowed eyes peer through your soul, seeing your darkest of secrets, including the macaroon you had before dinner. What’s worse is their tricky appearance. Sure, they’re being held by strings and being controlled by a puppeteer, but who’s controlling whom? Honestly, Magic messed you up big time… in a good way, though! Just the thought of seeing a marionette get up or even crawl The Grudge-girl-style toward the foot of your bed has you first in line at church on Sunday morning.
But just because you like dummies doesn’t mean you are one. There’s no way you’re leaving any haunted doll in your house. The dead souls living in them wouldn’t like your place anyway—your dishes from two weeks ago are still in the sink. Enter StorBox, for all your supernatural storage needs.
