HHN 24: MASKerade: Unstitched

Recommended Posts

I'm disappointed in the remarkable lack of gore I saw in the pictures/videos of this zone.

The makeup and masks aren't really what I expected, but I'm hoping that it's just from it being EP and them not having everything ready yet (AWIL last year didn't even have all of its masks until partway through the event).

I am 100% with you on this. The first night their face were covered with masks and I was fine with this because it was raining. however, the next day I only went to AP and left. But I strolled through all the SZ except The Purge. Sure enough same basic red paint around the eyes. Most still fully covered. With the lack of any other props but the candles (Why aren't their billiowing tattered walls on either side of the street?) this is really a let down so far.

I was expecting them to go up to you, rip their masks off, and then I would still be satisfied with just the red lines around their eyes. If they actually did the ripping-off of the masks, and maybe some sort of scream, that would make my night

AWIL last year had huge problems with stuff like masks. We ended up spending the first and I think the second weekend with some of the Nazi Demons using face paint because the masks weren't finished and available. Even after that our myriad role switches and issues regarding mask comfort and even allergic reactions meant that actors still ended up going out in makeup.

is that why so many actors have make up this year? feels like they are using make up a lot more than before to me. (mostly in the houses, there is a lot of make up this year)

Yeah, that always bugged me...and it's just salt in the wound that Hollywood has great masks in their version for that scene, but oh well.

I have to agree with others...when I saw the scare zone in action, I was like "Where's the UNSTICHED aspect they kept hyping up?"

Although there's a definite lack in sets and theme... and the masks are a bit disappointing... I have to say I really enjoy the music and the way the actors move through this zone. Just throwing a bit of positivity out there. :)

Sets are surprisingly bare, the candles should've strattled the entrance and exit, the music should've been louder, and there should have been more gore. Nice costumes and idea, though!

They are definitely high energy!

The candles were in the middle on Friday but prior to that I saw them to the sides. It definitely needs something more. The ambience is terrible. I still don't understand why there aren't tattered walls to each side... Maybe spashed with blood. Maybe some smaller candelabras here and there that are just knvies.

i guess there are no walls because all the money went to WD? (To this day I keep hearing about the budget cuts in the streets)
I would have preferred bloody walls to the sides instead of the lame giant candles. The giant Candles remind me of something you see at Disney. I didn't care for them

can anyone pinpoint the soundtrack for this scarezone?

Look at the HHN 24 Audio thread. They have a lot of the tracks there.

Someone must have given these guys a kick in the ass while I was gone, because their aggression on Friday seriously puts them at Street of the Year levels of contention. They were making scares practically non-stop and engaging in greater creativity (one stiltwalker hid in the dark alcove by the Despicable Me entrance on the sidewalk and one of the actors casually sat on a bench with other guests to blend in). I saw one stiltwalker move at a downright powerwalking pace to go after a pair of girls and he left them running in circles. Everyone seems to have gotten braver and more familiar with their area and costumes.

If they keep up this pace, I can confidently call MASKerade my favorite zone this year.
