Don't worry, it's easy to confuse Halloween and Christmas because OCT 31 = DEC 25 Ho ho ho

Has a murder indeed taken place? Is 'she' the victim? An accomplice? A bystander/witness? The true perpetrator?

Costume: that looking like an animal? No.
He: a hunter? Nope, good guess.


WiZ

Don't worry, it's easy to confuse Halloween and Christmas because OCT 31 = DEC 25 Ho ho ho Oh boy :lol: Hadn't heard that one before!

Has a murder indeed taken place? Actually irr. Let's say no and be pleasant. Is 'she' the victim? She would be. An accomplice? A bystander/witness? The true perpetrator? No to rest.

To be sure: Choice of Halloween costume for herself? for someone else? for a pet?
Was she wearing the costume when he was suspected of murder? Was he relevantly wearing a costume?

Halloween parties relevant? Trick-or-treating relevant?

Did she die at all? Did someone mistakenly believe that she died? Did the costume lead someone to mistakenly believe that she was dead? or to have a mistaken belief about the cause of her (presumed) death?

To be sure: Choice of Halloween costume for herself? Yes. for someone else? for a pet? No.
Was she wearing the costume when he was suspected of murder? Not necessarily. Was he relevantly wearing a costume? No.

Halloween parties relevant? Trick-or-treating relevant? No.


wunderland

Did she die at all? Yes*. Did someone mistakenly believe that she died? Did the costume lead someone to mistakenly believe that she was dead? or to have a mistaken belief about the cause of her (presumed) death? Thisish, no to rest.

*I was thinking we could leave her alive, but actually I think it only works if she did die. :/

Is the length of time since death relevant? For example, if she were a zombie, it might at first appear that she were dead for days when she had been dead minutes.

Did the custom feature some bullet hole or some kind of axe to the head, which suggests the way she died?
Is he cleared of the suspicion eventually? If so, in a short time? Was the true cause of death found to be something else?

wolfier

Did the custom feature some bullet hole or some kind of axe to the head, which suggests the way she died? No.
Is he cleared of the suspicion eventually? Irr for the puzzle, but most likely. If so, in a short time? Irr. Was the true cause of death found to be something else? No/irr.

To be sure: she (who chose the costume) was the victim right? Or was it someone else (e.g. she chose the same costume as the one wore by the murderer to signal to the police who was the killer)?

Did he relevantly wear a costume? If so, is his costume similar/related to the one she was wearing (e.g. wizard and assistant)? Or maybe the exact same (e.g. they were two parts of the same costume...say a horse) Did the two have/have had any relevant relation? Fiends? Girlfriend and boyfriend? Colleagues? Brother and sister? Complete strangers? Did someone else relevantly wear the same costume as him?
Did he effectively kill her? If so, by accident? Intentionally?

because of her choice of Halloween costume = had she wore another costume he would not have been accused? Because her costume was dirtied by something relevant? Was she dressed as: crazy scientist? Ghost? Witch? Zombie? Harry Potter? Crazy clown? A relevant character of an horror movie? Did she has some relevant gadget (e.g. a camera/plaster/fingerprint material/cell phone/ recorder/ something that could furnish a prove)? Unusual for an Halloween party (ii.e. denoting that she was working/ not taking part to the party)? Did she decide to change the Halloween costume at the very last minute? Is KKK relevant?

Was she killed before Halloween? While wearing the costume? The day of Halloween? After Halloween?
Is her costume: scary? Wore by other people (e.g. friends/collegues)? Having false blood? Are fingerprints relevant?

A relevant event occurs before Halloween. --> negative event? An event that was made public? natural catastrophe? accident? Murder? kidnapping? robbery? others? A wedding? A proposal? A threat? Did something happened to her costume? To his costume?

Did he effectively kill her? No. If so, by accident? Intentionally?

because of her choice of Halloween costume = had she wore another costume he would not have been accused? Correct. Because her costume was dirtied by something relevant? No. Was she dressed as: crazy scientist? Ghost? Witch? Zombie? Harry Potter? Crazy clown? A relevant character of an horror movie? None of these, but it is a fairly common costume. Did she has some relevant gadget (e.g. a camera/plaster/fingerprint material/cell phone/ recorder/ something that could furnish a prove)? Yesish, for SVV of gadget. Unusual for an Halloween party (ii.e. denoting that she was working/ not taking part to the party)? No. Did she decide to change the Halloween costume at the very last minute? No. Is KKK relevant? No.

Was she killed before Halloween? While wearing the costume? Yes. The day of Halloween? After Halloween? Exact timing irr, but while she had her costume on.
Is her costume: scary? Not especially, but based on something rather scary. Wore by other people (e.g. friends/collegues)? Not relevantly. Having false blood? No. Are fingerprints relevant? No.

A relevant event occurs before Halloween. --> negative event? Slightly. An event that was made public? No. natural catastrophe? accident? Yes. Murder? kidnapping? robbery? others? A wedding? A proposal? A threat? No to rest. Did something happened to her costume? Noish, explore. To his costume? No.

************RECAP

She picked out a costume for herself to wear for Halloween, and was killed while wearing the costume. He is her friend, and was accused of her murder because of her costume choice. He actually had nothing to do with her death. It doesn't matter how, why or exactly when she was killed.

An aspect of her specific costume is relevant. It did not make her appear to be injured or dead. She was dressed in a fairly common, mildly "scary" Halloween costume, but not a wizard, crazy scientist, ghost, witch, zombie, clown or character from a horror movie franchise.

A very minor accident relevantly occurred before she was killed.

You could do this costume a number of ways, but I think pants, long sleeves, a hat and boots would be pretty standard.

I saw a question that asked whether KKK was relevant, you said yes, and everyone ignored it, so...it is relevant, right? Race relevant? Are they of different races? Is she white and he black? Vice versa? Is she wearing a KKK costume? One that could be misconstrued as a KKK costume? Was racism believed to be his motive for killing her?

Did she buy the costume? was it custom-made for her? did she make it herself?
Did she wear a costume like this every year at Halloween? did she wear different costumes in the years before? was it the first time at all that she decided to have a costume for Halloween?
Did she relevantly put on the costume before Halloween?
Did she wear the costume when she was murdered?
Did the costume cover her face? Did the killer mistake her for someone else?
Was something missing from her costume when she was found?

Hobbsicle, I was about to ask the same thing about the KKK. Great minds.

Is she dressed up as a specific person? As a certain job? A scarecrow?

Did she trip on her costume? Did the accident lead to her death? Was she killed accidentally? If so, by her own doing? Murdered? Is it relevant where she was at the time? Is it relevant where he was?

Sorry, sorry! Complete *******TYPO******** that I just went back and fixed. Should be No.

Race relevant? Are they of different races? Is she white and he black? Vice versa? Is she wearing a KKK costume? One that could be misconstrued as a KKK costume? Was racism believed to be his motive for killing her? No/irr to all.

Did she buy the costume? was it custom-made for her? did she make it herself? Assume this, they could be some store-bought elements though.
Did she wear a costume like this every year at Halloween? did she wear different costumes in the years before? was it the first time at all that she decided to have a costume for Halloween? Irr.
Did she relevantly put on the costume before Halloween? No, it could have happened any time surrounding Halloween.
Did she wear the costume when she was murdered? Yes.
Did the costume cover her face? No. Did the killer mistake her for someone else? Irr.
Was something missing from her costume when she was found? Technically no, but great question, explore.

Was she killed accidentally? If so, by her own doing? Murdered? Actually, irr.
Is it relevant where she was at the time? No. Is it relevant where he was? No.

Was something not part of her costume that normally would be part of that costume? (ie, she no red nose for a clown?) Had something been part of her costume but somehow destroyed? Removed? Melted?

Does it matter what the accident was? Did it result in injury to her? (As opposed to be the “I spilled my drink” type of accident?) Did she seek/require medical attention for it? Did it result in her being someplace she wouldn’t otherwise have been?

Was she directly involved in the accident? Did she witness the accident? Cause it? Was told about it?
Is the costume related to a current job, hobby, lifestyle? Or a bygone one (like a pirate)?
Is the location of the accident relevant? Did the accident involve one or more people directly, like one person tripping over another person's foot? Or were people only indirectly involved, like wind blowing a tree down onto someone's roof?
Did the accident cause damage to an object? To a person? Did it embarrass anyone? Make anyone mad or upset?
When she wore the costume, did it cause her to be dressed just like someone else?
Is the relevant accessory to the costume a weapon? A piece of clothing? A living thing?
Are animals related to any of the events?

Is there anything else to uncover about him? Was he the host of the party?

Does the style of earring matter? If so, is it a hoop? Tiny bauble thing? Relevant how long before Halloween she lost it? Did she relevantly try to find it? Replace it? Would she have died had she not lost the earring?
