Student crashes car in 'Carrie' Halloween costume and paramedics think she's dead
With Halloween just around the corner, the time has come to don the scariest costumes you can for a Halloween party. And most of us will be opting for the terrifying characters that haunt some of the greatest horror movies ever made.
Whether its Ghostface from Scream, Jason from the Friday The 13th franchise, or Billy the Puppet from Saw, these nightmarish villains often lend themselves very well to a frightful costume. One woman who had clearly been inspired by horror pop culture was student Sidney Wolde from West Virginia.
Sidney had opted to attend a Halloween party dressed as Stephen King's iconic character Carrie, from the movie of the same name. The movie's climax sees a tormented and blood-covered Carrie take revenge on her cruel classmates by locking them in the school's auditorium and setting the place ablaze with her supernatural powers.
Check out the trailer to the original Carrie below (can you believe how far movie trailers have come??)
And Sidney nailed the character, donning a white dress, tiara, and covering herself with SO MUCH (fake) BLOOD. The party was in support of a local theatre production, which just so happened to be a musical version of Stephen King's popular horror tale.
However, one her way home, Sidney was involved in a car crash that required paramedics to be called to the scene. When they arrived, they were convinced she had been killed in the crash. It's all quite morbidly hilarious.
Sidney later took to Twitter to share her frightfully funny misfortune. She said: "If anyone wants to know how my weekend went I totalled my car while dressed up as Carrie and everyone who was a first responder thought I was dead HAHAHAHA IM SO SORRY."
"It's just funny because I looked terrible. God was looking out for me."
After receiving hundreds of comments and questions, Sidney explained that the crash was caused after a "deer ran in front of [her] car".
She continued: "Everyone is asking for the backstory so here it goes. I was promoting Carrie the Musical at a haunted house. At the end of the night, I was too tired to shower and remove my makeup so when I wrecked the first responders saw my blood and freaked.
"Waiting for my parents to come pick me up from the scene, two more policemen showed up. By this time, I was out of the vehicle and making conversation with the people. The new officer says, 'I hate to interrupt but don't you guys think she needs medical assistance?'"
As you can see below, not only have people been thoroughly entertained by the story, but Sidney has received many well-wishers:
