Halloween was celebrated all across West Virginia this past weekend. The chilly rain and dreary skies did little to deter the annual candy-seeking monsters from securing their bounty. With trick-or-treating, trunk-or-treating and a host of other autumn-themed events, children, families and fun-seekers of all ages had plenty to choose from to satisfy their Halloween itch.
In a solid example of imitation being the best form of flattery, 13-year-old Jameson Marble, of Charleston, created perhaps the best costume in West Virginia this year by pulling off an eerily-accurate Gov. Jim Justice. The costume was so spot-on that the real Justice invited Marble to be a part of his Friday, Oct. 29 media briefing.
According to a statement released by the governor’s office, “On Friday, Gov. Justice took time to welcome 13-year-old Jameson Marble onto his briefing. Marble, a student at John Adams Middle School in Charleston, recently went viral on social media after he dressed up as the governor for a Halloween celebration, complete with white hair and a stuffed animal Babydog replica. Marble was invited on set during the briefing in his full Governor attire.”
“This is the greatest Halloween costume that you could ever pick,” Justice said.
Marble concluded his appearance at the briefing by telling viewers he “got vaccinated for Babydog.”
