This one was from one of my fellow actors. I recently bought the "Deviant" mask from Zagone Studios, which didn't exactly cost a fortune but was still more than I've ever spent on a costume before (seeing as how I always used the ones provided by the managers). I was showing it off, showing people how the mouth moved, when a big guy comes walking up to me wearing one of the haunt-provided masks. He says, "Dude, your mask is awesome! Can I have it?" I tell him no, I paid for it, and he offers me $10 for it. The local high school drove a bus down to our haunt filled with drama students, all begging for scaring positions so that they could get extra credit. This guy was one of them. They had no clue as to how to work an improv-heavy act like this, and they didn't know how much a good costume can actually cost (made evident by all the masks and other costume pieces left lying around after closing... my boss nearly blew a gasket).
