HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE

The horsemen of the apocalypse may be seen by some as a terrifying sign from the Bible of the impending “end times” but here at Area 51 these eerie equestrians are easily among our favourite characters.

And although they may be the physical incarnations of the forces of man’s self-destruction, 51’s postilion of pestilence, dragoon of death, rider of famine and jockey of famine are a joy to have appear at any shindig, large or small… but really come into their own on Halloween.

GIRAFFE

GIRAFFE A giraffe standing some 17-feet-tall and looking rather realistic... this is another stalwart Area 51 costume that’s still going strong.
