Share the chills with a ghost story

Winter’s bite is already in the air, Autumns only halfway through. Being online it makes it easier to have friends posting pictures from warmer places. Let’s write stories that chill them to the bone, to match the cold snap here in Gippsland.

Share the Chills

The ghost story has to be your own, minimum of 6 words, no maximum (although I think Facebook makes it physically impossible to put more than 1000 words in a comment box). If your story is true can you please either message me or put a (T) beside the story? Thanks very much.

You can win a Ghost Tour ticket to Haunted Hills Tours Yallourn North, May Ghost Tour. Second prize wins a 50% off their booking and third prize is 25% off their booking. (If you’re in need of inspiration, scroll down, read T&C’s but it’s after that!

Method:

Write a chilling ghost story in the comments! Minimum of 6 words. Follow these steps to enter:

1. Write your ghost story in the original post on Facebook in the comments
2. Confirm your entry here: http://tab.fo/bs375m3 (+ see rules)

We will pick the best comment on Saturday 2 May 2015, 08:41 pm and contact the winner through the email. Find detailed rules in the link above.

If ten or more people write stories in the comments on Facebook, I’ll write a short ghost story and publish it after the winner has been declared.

Inspiration for ghost stories:

It’s a Facebook competition, and these stories are ones I found on Facebook. It’s an easy way to ensure attribution.

 Also don’t forget it’s Mother’s Day on the 10th of May (just six days before the next ghost tour)

Yallourn North Ghost Tour, May 16th 2015.

Competition, ghosts, apparition, perpective

Apirl’s apparitions

The last competition had me thinking we all have a different experience of the paranormal. This has led us all to different ideas about how apparitions manifest. It reminds me of the old parable about the 5 blind people, told that they’re at an elephant each experiences it differently from their vantage point. At a different part of the elephant, each getting a different perspective of the elephant.  The trunk, the floppy ears, the tail thinner, pillar legs, a wall at the elephants stomach, in order to fully appreciate the elephant they need to move around it. Let’s put together our elephant, in photoplasty. Competition, ghosts, apparition, perpective

Each of us have a different perception or even experience of an apparition. In order to get a better appreciation for a collective experience I’m asking that show us your apparition in a meme or photo or art. It has to be your work own to share. In the description please let us know if this is a picture you’ve taken that is one you think is of a spirit or if it is a creation of what best represents your idea of an apparition. The picture/meme with most likes wins.

Is an apparition a comfort to you? A mystery? scary? something you live with? Show us in your own words or a picture that your allowed to submit. (Work that is not yours to share will be deleted.)

I found http://www.canva.com is great for creating sharable content, it’s not a photoshop ap, if you were going to get super creative.

Haunted Hills Costume, 1910's dress, 1920's dress,

We have chosen we want a dress that looks like it’s from the 1910-1930’s as a throwback to the birth of Yallourn, Brown Coal Mine and Haunted Hills.

Help! We’re trying to pick the costume the ghost whisperer will wear on the tours.

We’re thinking that the costume will be from the 1910’s-1930’s as a throwback to the birth of Yallourn, Brown Coal Mine and the Haunted Hills. We’d love to hear your thoughts, please leave a number of the dress and some comments on this post in Facebook. Thanks. (We were really surprised how hard it was to find a 1920’s that wasn’t a Flapper, Gatsby or Razzle dress, we didn’t think that would suit and in winter would be freezing.No I’m not wearing a corset, I like my organs as they are.)
