Check out my newest fan.

The man behind the mask is Steve Vaughn, aka, the Dark Stilter. He was getting into his gear next to my table where I sold books at a comic con this past weekend.



As you can see, he doesn't use a ladder,but simply balances one leg at a time to put on the stilts. He has about 60 different silicone heads and an assortment of costumes that he changes several times a day.


Steve has a remarkable ability to scare and charm people at the same time. He'll goof on adults, but is very gentle with children.


Those who are leery at first are soon shaking his hand and posing for pictures. Out of costume he's not scary at all, but a perfectly nice guy. Steve practices his monster trade and is in great demand at conventions, haunted houses, festivals, and wherever else 8 foot tall freaks are in demand.

THE MORAL OF THE STORY
Find your passion, no matter how weird, and run with it. You may be able to make a living like Steve someday.
