Procession of the Ghouls

So, last year we came across a random website detailing how awesome St. John the Divine is. By that I mean some "Vigilant Citizen" ranting about how the Episcopalian church is actually a satanic church with satanic rituals. (It's a good read: http://vigilantcitizen.com/sinistersites/sinister-sites-st-john-the-divine-cathedral/  )

So this year we MADE SURE to go to one of the satanic rituals: The Procession of the Ghouls. AND it was awesome! My camera died, so I managed to get some shitty cell phone shots, but here's some photos from the internet. The costumes were super elaborate, and some of them were these half-puppet, half-costume costumes. Before the procession, they played The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which I wasn't a fan of. Guess not every silent film could be as good as Metropolis. But it was awesome. If you're ever in NYC you should check this out..






To fit the whole pagan feel, I went as a forest nymph. homemade costume. the horns are paper, which surprisingly didn't look like shit.

On a less satanic day, the cathedral looks like this. It's tied for the 4th largest Christian cathedral in the world.

TOO MUCH HDR
