English term or phrase: people dressed as dead trees
XX [new director of this park, in HK] dreamt up new entertainments. Often they were small and basic, such as **people dressed as dead trees** for Halloween and booths for kids to play with water squirters.

Y a-t-il un fait culturel qui m'échappe (c'est fort possible) ou s'agit-il vraiment de gens déguisés en arbre mort?
Je trouve ça très bizarre.
Merci !

agree  Rachel Vanarsdall: possibly this is for a "haunted forest" event where the "dead trees" will stand very still and then leap out or move suddenly to frighten the visitors.
