So a bunch of us went to Night Safari Halloween on a Friday evening, where all the actors came out to play.
Tried to take some animal shots but some of the access/features were altered to accomodate the event.
Fair enough, went on to enjoy the "scares" - actors jumping out at the tram, hiding in bushes etc - more scare-tactics than spooky
Except this one.....
The tram-ride would pass this chinese "ghost wedding" setting. Mannequins and cut-outs litter the small open area that this was staged. As it passed, I noticed that this one stood out from the other cut-outs, so I took this shot as the tram passed by. Some of us though it was another mannequin but I thought I saw the body turn to face the tram and my wife thought she saw the head/eyes turn.
Need your advice - what the hell did I just shoot? Part of the neck is missing, the eyes/hand looks real, heck, there's a microphone attached. Everyone who saw this has been spooked and don't wanna see it anymore.....

I can't explain this.... hoping someone else can...
