With the susurrus of tattered plastic, mobs of garish ghostumes flutter across the Planet Motherfucker nightscape.  They glow garishly in the moonlit mists, reflecting an unholy neon mélange of freakish faces and phantasmagorical images.

And though mute, sometimes...if the wind is juuuust right...the maniacal laughter of long-dead children trails their passing.

Ghostumes mob their victims, bludgeoning with invisible fists, slicing with razored mouth-slits, and smothering with acrid vinyl.

When vanquished, ghostumes crumple to the ground in shredded, grimy heaps.  The strap-on masks that serve as their disembodied "heads" can sometimes be salvaged, and when worn, endow supernatural powers....
