Maybe he was going for a haunted cotton candy booth vibe.
Local Fair Cotton Candy Booth Worker Covered In Candy

This is a short video of a man working the cotton candy booth at a local fair in Shelby, North Carolina, who’s gotten himself completely covered in the candy. Does that booth also double as the one where you try to catch dollar bills in a hurricane? Maybe! To his credit though, the people working booths at the fair are often volunteers and don’t always have the training and experience to do what they’re doing. Trust me, I worked the smoked turkey leg booth at the fair one year, and I can’t even begin to guess how many people I served raw legs to. But it had to be right around all of them, because I never really got that smoker smoking.
