Late Hallowe’en House

SUPPLEMENTAL, November 3:  Something happened as I was publishing this article — I probably fell asleep at the keyboard — and the fashion details didn’t get added.  They’re at the end now, with apologies.  Also with no links, as that’s the longest part of the process, trying to chase down moved or vanished landmarks.  My apologies for this.


We were hoping we would get this shoot finished before Hallowe’en hit, but just too much RL intruded to let us get our looks just right, and then photograph everything and get it written up.  However, the costumes are too good to not show off, and the house is still there as of this writing, if you don’t want Hallowe’en to end!


Jem and I were walking about in the French Quarter of New Orleans, when she announced to me that she had just put a down payment on a house. “Would you like to go see it?”

“Well, sure,” I replied.

“Great!  Come along with me, then.”  And she started walking off deeper into the French Quarter, and up an alley.  At the end, she unlocked a gate that screeled like a soul in anguish, making me perk my brows in surprise.  And then up a path, on a piece of property far larger than you’d expect to find in a big city outside of a park, until she stopped at the end.


“There it is!  What do you think?”


“What in hell–?”

“The instant I saw it, I just had to have it,” Jemmy burbled, and turned back to the “stunning” view.


Something drifted by us, just in sight in the fog, dressed in a tattered, antique gown; but before I could focus on the woman, she had vanished.


Jemmy was holding her hands to her cheeks in delight and grinning like a crazy woman.  I had a few…different ideas…about the whole idea.


“So, you haven’t said; what do you think?”

I drew a breath, and said, “Is it too late to get your money back?”
