Escaped mental patient ideas?

9850 11
I figued, since I have 2 opportunities for haunting this year (one for a halloween party, the other for actual halloween night). For the party, I'm going as an escaped menral health patient, and I need to make a checklist on what to buy or scrounge around for. I'll also take some techniques on how to act as a mental patient. Anyone have any ideas?

Having worked around and with the mentally insane...

Really, you should pick something, and focus on that. REALLY focus on that.

Since, we're going to assume you're dangerous, paranoid dillusions are pretty much the best thing to go after.

Now, WHAT are you deluding? That's the question.

The govt is out to get you.
God is speaking to you, and you are his prophet.
Bugs are under your skin and you can't get them out.
You're being chased by flying pig faced ninjas...

Who knows.

I'll tell you one of the more frightening experiences I've personally had was a fellow who refused to let go of my arm and went into detail on how he was going to make a lethal weapon out of the plastic spray bottle I was holding, break out, and go into the mountain where he had buried his confederate gold...

I do not agree with the blank stare, you need the INSANE stare. The "I'm going to snap at any second" stare....The "I'm a wild animal, not a human" stare...

Anyhow, whatever you pick to be your delusion. IT IS YOU. That is ALL you think about. ALL you talk to anyone about. IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES SENSE. NOTHING else matters.

And talk to them swiftly, but softly, till they walk away, then LOUD, SLOW AND THREATENING.








And don't get TOO into character.

Frankly, I wouldn't jump out at them. Let them see you in the distance, twitching, pacing, biting your nails, jittery, and wondering what's wrong with you. THEN I'ld walk right up and start in on your delusion.

AND TARGET THE PARENTS! Scaring a kids parents is a most effective way of scaring the kid.
