ORIENTAL STREET MURDER 2
This is proudly, our second and best-staged mock murder to date!
Murder victim #2, is Jordan. Jordan is the sister of the last murder victim, Kaden.
Jordan’s mother was reluctant to let us “murder” another one of her kids (Kaden was a surprise), but she agreed and it took about 90 minutes to set everything up.
Lucky for us, there was a half-full (or half empty) skip just down the road. And we were allowed to use it!
As like last time, we used talcum powder to make her arms/neck/face deathly-pale and blue/purple eyeshadow on her neck to make bruises. She was wearing a top underneath that didn’t go over her shoulders so she appeared naked like the victims in Shortland Street.
- So Jordan wouldn’t be lying on nails, wood and another building materials
- So it didn’t look like she was lying on a mattress, both ends were in rubbish bags.
So it didn’t look flat, soft toys were put into the bags. A split bag was used to cover the middle of the mattress. The rubbish bags are of course filled with soft toys and blankets, because the skip was originally half-full with building material.
The “rubbish bed” was put in first, then surrounded by the rubbish bags mentioned above, cardboard, plastic bags and other bits of rubbish.
As the scene was prepared, neighbors and the local kids came to see what was going on, and why there was a whole lot of rubbish flying in and around the skip.
Dad, for convincing the skip owners to let us use it, despite the nail risks AND for taking photos
