Musée Grevin - a ghost?


At Musée Grevin, this figure peeking from behind the velvet curtains
seemed just spooky enough for our Halloween

I am not sure who inspired this wax figure.  It is a wax figure, right?

Eh bien ma chère Genie, j'espère sincèrement que c'est une figure de cire! Dans le cas contraire, oh, la la! Joyeuse fête d'Halloween! Veronique

Très spooky! I certainly hope he is wax; otherwise, he needs to go see a good orthodontist. Happy Halloween!

Halcyon said...

I hope so! It's a bit creepy...

Paris Paul said...

Not to worry...it's me! I had a pretty bad hangover that day is what happened. I'm much better now! Happy Halloween, Genie!

Downright creepy! A perfect Hallowe'en trick rather than treat.

Jilly said...

I love this! And the reflections we see make it even more scary - or perhaps they are not reflections and it's ectoplasm? Mind all those ghosties and ghoulies tonight, Genie...

Amanda said...

Absolutely spooky enough for a Halloween post. And if he isn't a wax figure . . . then it's even spookier!

Starman said...

A good Halloween photo. Did you get the special surprise in the Grevin?

Kris said...

Ooh, it is soooo eerie! Halloween always scares me. I don't like Halloween movies or going into haunted houses either!

Oh poo, I guess I am a baby! LOL

Paul, I have seen photos of you, and this creepy fellow could not be Paris Paul!

It has been a busy Halloween with lots of little ghosts and goblins. There is enough sugar in my neighborhood to put every man, woman and child into a diabetic coma. I would not want to be a school teacher tomorrow as there are going to be more than a few kids who have overdosed on the Halloween candy!

Thank you for your comments. This "wax" figure still gives me the creeps and a shiver!

Bises,
Genie
