Challenge #03955-J303: Spooky Scary

Get in the Halloween spirit and make a ghost!

That’s called murder and I heard somewhere that it was illegal -- Anon Guest

Human Wren glared over his crafting supplies as he donned the thick industrial gloves. "Okay. A few things. Ghosts aren't really real like that. Most of it's infra-sound and magnetic fields messing with our jellyware." A tap to his head as he brought out the rolls of chicken wire. "Secondly, I am not about to kill anybody in the belief that that was even possible. Third... What the flying flakk, Carl?"

Companion Carl maintained her distance from the mad human with the weird project in progress[1]. The humanoid torso had definitely put her in a cautious state of mind. The fact that it was plastic didn't help. It was still a dismembered body part. "Your species' reputation precedes you, I'm afraid." After a minute, she added, "I'm very afraid."

"Chicken wire ghosts," Wren, having finished cutting a length of mesh, wrapped it around the torso and pressed it into shape. "A hollow shape reminiscent of a human form, but... not actually a ghost." A very human grin. "I'm going to attach this one to one of the roombas in Cargo Hold Four. Part of the Haunted House, this year."
