[Victoria, BC] One Otaku’s Picks for the Halloween Season … or is that Two?

22 Sep

Some of us writers here at Otaku no Culture are trying to decide on what Victoria, British Columbia events are the best to hit as October is the season for festive frights.

Ed knew to purchase tickets early for some events because they tend to sell out fast, Shawn is living in Trail, BC which should speak for itself and James is likely going to pine away, lamenting why-oh-why, bemoaning his life like a ghost. Yes, he’s feeling miserable because he is not able to get out as much. There’s nothing this guy can do to save himself because he is holding two jobs and helping his mother out, who is currently healing following an operation. He’s a hero for the most part.

In the Celtic tradition, the Harvest Moon is a time to make merry. On October 5th, we will hail the season for everything it offers. Bring on the rain (or snow in other parts of the country)!

This year, they are adding Victoria, BC to the list of where to hit and the timing could not be any better. Since I have seen three versions by different troupes, I must say this particular group are dedicated film buffs who have an absolute love for the cinematic genre.

And, of course, they promise to lay the blood thick in the splatter zone! When I saw the Arts West production, I did not realize you have to sit very close to the kitchen set to get sloshed the most. Depending on whether the show can be held outdoors or indoors, hidden sprinklers can be used to really get people soaked! Tip: wear a white shirt if you intend to be hit with the stage effects. Afterwards, those leaving the theatre can proudly show off their badge of honour with wicked glee.
