Halloween in Ashland means Harry Orell’s on the loose again. An information and technology project manager at Randolph-Macon College, Orell has been scaring up a spook on campus and in town for 14 years with increasingly elaborate home-made costumes. “The college president told me this is the best one yet,” Orell said Wednesday on Center Street, where he was chatting up costumers in front of The Caboose Wine & Cheese Shop. “You can’t ask for more than that.” Orell began working on his dinosaurish costume in January, piecing together hundreds of recycled parts. “The head is a recycled garbage can,” he said. “You can tell by the way it smells in here.” He said his day began at 6 as he started his trek through as many campus buildings as could accommodate the width and height of his costume. He finally petered out by 5, then went home to hand out candy. “That’s all my back can handle,” he said. “I’ll take off the top and set it on the porch to scare the kids.” Since he can not fit through most doors, he met Salon Van Haren employee Karen Crump outside. His is one of their clients. Autumn Buck, age 18 months and also dressed for Halloween, was not too scared to hold his hand. Photo was taken Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
