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 ate everything but the candy corns right away. 2. Did you ever actually eat the Bit-O-Honey?
Yeah, like crazy! But then they'd end up in tissues in my grandmother's purse. 3. What was your greatest achievement in a Halloween costume?
In seventh grade I created a Spiderman costume out of a blue and red set of longjohns. 4. Which Halloween costume of yours is potential blackmail material?
I've always been superheroes or ghosts or goblins. Nothing all that risque, actually. 5. What scares you to your core?
Vampires. 6. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
X-ray vision. 7. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
Boston Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez. He's a little guy; I'm a little guy. 8. Who is the scariest person you've ever met?
I met Alice Cooper in 1996 at Madison Scare Garden in New York. It was like a big haunted house and I had to play a psycho clown with a chainsaw. He was there to promote it and looked very scary without any costume at all. But when you actually talk to him, he's the nicest guy in the world. 9. Who's the coolest: Dracula, Frankenstein or the Wolfman?
Dracula. He's got that charm, that way with the ladies. 10. Have you ever had a paranormal experience?
Several. The house that I just moved out of, we heard a knocking on the wall, saw a torso walking through the living room, all kinds of stuff. See the answers
