Mink Coat is a haunted luxurious, full-length, white mink fur coat.

HistoryEdit

Primary CanonEdit

During New Year's Eve 1989, New York City was being invaded by ghosts and inundated with Psychomagnotheric Slime. A woman wearing a mink fur coat accidentally stepped into a puddle of the pink slime. As a result, the coat was animated and the heads sprang up. The woman screamed in terror and immediately took off the coat. She dropped it to the ground and the coat scampered down the sidewalk screaming and hissing at bystanders.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The Mink Coat was filmed at night on a street location in Los Angeles. Tim Lawrence and his crew developed four different coats that actuated by radio controlled servos, hand puppeteering and cable-pull mechanisms. A white fur was envisioned and was the basis for the coat, heads, and legs. After everything was scuplted and cast in foam latex, mechanics finished, actor fitted, and harness was finished, a film test was sent to Ivan Reitman 10 days before the shoot. Reitman was fine with the test but asked why the coat was white. The crew scrambled and redid the coat with darker fur in time for the shoot. [1]

She reaches the end of the runway and pirouettes for the customers. Suddenly a yapping mink head pops out of the shoulder of the coat, then another and another until the whole coat is a mess of writhing, yapping rodents. The model screams and throws the coat off.""
