So I created an original urban legend (or scary tale really) which I posted on the Halloween Story Ideas Google doc so you can read it there. I don’t have an ending yet because there are many directions I want to go with and am currently trying to find the best one.
But! The character of Nimmy (Nimmy = Nimis = gluttony or excessive eating) is going to be a chubby little girl who single-handedly ruins an important Halloween ritual because of her greediness and faces HIM.
Now, because she’s greedy I’ve gotten this as research and found that it certainly applies to the story, especially the quote on greediness.
Should we have her dressed like a frog with the color yellow incorporated (for greed) or go with something completely different? This would definitely bring the kid friendliness to the animation, but is it too obvious?
Also, I don’t know if this is too dark or morbid, but once someone in the family is killed off the whole family needs to wear an article of clothing from the person and a mask that looks like their face for the next year.
Let me know what you think!
