We Modeled In An ACTUAL Haunted Mansion And May Or May Not Be Possessed Now

Spooky, but make it fashion.

Posted on

Hi, we're Jazzmyne, Chrissy, Pablo, Cissy, and Sheridan, and normally we don't fuck with ghosts, demons, or anything that'll lead us to hell's portal.

But in the name of serving a #look, we begrudgingly did it this one time:

The mansion in question is named The Sunny Gables Estate (IDK what's so sunny about it), and it was built in 1930 by Robert T. Moore.

The home, which is in La Cañada Flintridge, CA, has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, staff quarters, a guesthouse, a 32-foot gallery entrance, a floating staircase, a pub, a library, and some secret passageways between rooms. Oh, and it was built on top of a safe.

Moore was an ornithologist (bird expert) and died from an illness on the property on Oct. 30, 1958 (ONE DAY BEFORE HALLOWEEN). His wife died nine days later.

So it's obviously haunted, right?

Upon entering Moore's former home, we all knew that we were about to become ghosts too.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

The current owner then notified us that Moore actually kept 55,000 birds on the property, which Sheridan, who's deathly afraid of birds, was not pleased to hear.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

We also didn't tell her this before she got here, so I guess we're bad friends or whatever.

After being appropriately creeped out by the thought of two human ghosts and 55,000 bird ghosts hovering around us, we then entered the room Robert actually died in.

Pray 4 us.

Pray 4 us.

The energy in that room didn't feel cute, and this tid bit of info wasn't any cuter:

AND NEITHER WAS THIS ONE:

After one of the creepiest house tours ever, it was time to be one with the spirits and MODEL 4 OUR LIVES.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

And if the house wasn't already creepy enough on it's own, we had Joshua Amen, a ghost hunter and founder of Amendella Paranormal, follow us around trying to get a sense of any phenomena.

First up was Jazzmyne. She did her shoot in the iconic bedroom, because why run from ghosts when you can run toward them?

BuzzFeed

She wasn't out here tryna make the room more haunted than it already felt tho.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

So she channeled all her nervous energy into this fire photo!

Next up was Pablo. He had to shoot in the pub and felt weirdly drawn to it, as if someone or something was telling him to go in there.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

Once the ghost hunter asked the spirit to give us a knock, the "spirit" obliged!

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

Pablo was not pleased.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

But Chrissy, aka the spirit, was.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

Disclaimer: Pablo will never forgive Chrissy for this. So if you're reading this Chrissy, you've been blocked.

But despite Chrissy's best efforts to scare the shit outta Pablo, he still brought it ouuuuut.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

It was now Chrissy and Jazzmyne's turn to channel their inner Shining in the foyer. Chrissy came with a foolproof plan.

And despite it being a relatively chilly night, the thermal sensor somehow detected a weird amount of heat in the wall near them.

Spoooooooooooky.
Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

Spoooooooooooky.

But to be fair, it could have also just come from these INSANELY HOT looks.

Macey J Foronda / BuzzFeed

Next up we have Sheridan, who was scared deep down, but refused to let the ghost know that.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

She didn't want Robert Moore's spirit all up in her business...

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

...so she just focused on the task at hand and DELIVERED!

Macey J Foronda / BuzzFeed

And last but not least, we have Cissy, who had by far had the strangest experience of us all.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

Every single time Josh asked the spirit (not Chrissy this time) to interact with the meter, it fucking did!

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

Cissy was SHOOK to say the least.

Lindsay Webster / BuzzFeed

She thought it was her late grandma for a second, but Pablo, being the logical human he is, thought it was a demon.

Pablo Valdivia / BuzzFeed

Well, whoever that spirit was got some fierce thrown back at it cuz Cissy slayed it right after that.

Overall, we all felt proud of ourselves for having lived to tell this tale.

And for those who wanna say "GHOSTS AREN'T REAL!" or "THIS SHOWS NO PROOF!!" feel free to yell that into the void because we felt what we felt and looked fabulous while doing so.
