For the final weekend of Fright Fest 2016, Sleezy had his right eyeball hanging out as a reference to The Walking Dead character Glenn Rhee's brutal murder by Negan in the Season 7 episode "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be", which had aired the previous weekend.

Sleezy is a play on the word "sleazy", which is a reference to how the word is sometimes used in a negative way to describe people who dress in a punk rock style. Sleezy's look is inspired by modern punk rock fashion.
