For the month of October, students had the opportunity to work for an internship at a local haunted house, also known as The Haunted Doom, working only Thursday through Saturday nights until 6:30 – 11:00 on non-school nights and 9:00 on Thursdays. Upon arrival they would be handed a clipboard with a list of areas in the house, then be told to sign up for the room they wish, if the area was available. Depending on the area, a worker may get a costume and have their makeup done to go with the assigned area. Each area has it’s own unique theme and set up, the “asylum” is a room with bars and white spongy walls that have strange messages written in fake blood. Those workers would wear something along the lines of a “straightjacket” and their main objective was to seem like a stereotypical insane person. In the doll room, the workers must have their hair done in a doll like fashion and another worker would help them with their makeup, making them looked like a slightly broken porcelain doll. Despite this being a job, and it was taken quite seriously, many of the workers were also able to have fun with it. After all, the main objective was to scare people.
