The Richmond Masquerade

[image-1](Chad Hunt / StyleWeekly)1. When you were a kid, how long did your bag of candy last before every piece was either gobbled or petrified?
I was the kid who wanted to savor every last bit. I would hide it under my bed to save it for later, and forget it was there until the next year when I needed my little plastic pumpkin container again. 2. Did you ever actually eat the Bit-O-Honey?
Those went to the really odd kid next door who dressed like Gene Simmons every year. 3. What was your greatest achievement in a Halloween costume?
Eddie Murphy's version of Buckwheat in the '80s. When that character was so popular on Saturday Night Live, I went to my junior high with black paint on my face, nappy wig and a "Who Shot Buckwheat?" sign - and got sent home after first period. 4. Which Halloween costume of yours is potential blackmail material?
The full-body Ewok suit. 5. What scares you to your core?
Spiders. With their disgusting legs and nasty fangs, crawling anywhere on my body. That description could also apply to many drunk guys I come across at the shows. 6. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Time travel. 7. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
Michael Jackson. 8. Who is the scariest person you've ever met?
The guy dressed like Pluto at Disney World. 9. Who's the coolest: Dracula, Frankenstein or the Wolfman?
Definitely Dracula, with his powers over the ladies and all. 10. Have you ever had a paranormal experience?
Every day. See the answers
