8 answers by real people - Metaphor to describe thick fog or mist?
Depending on the mood it can be called a “grey mist, such as the material that clings to the edges of your dreams.”
Or ” The swirling vapor”
“Wraith” (A way to make the person reading think of a ghost or phantom)
“Cloud” (not threatening at all and will make them think of it as thick and “perhaps” nothing scary in it.)
“Cloak” (As if covering over something you, or the character wishes to see or find.)(Can also be scary)
Really the way you describe or whatever you call the mist or thick fog needs to go with the mood you wish to set. It will also help alot to know wether its at night or during the day. Heck even the different parts of the day make a huge difference on how you’ll proceed.
Hmmm… the thick fog pressed in on all sides like a blanket of… um…. something…. ice?
The mist clung in the air, obscuring (my, her, his) vision as though (he, she, I) was peering through a pond of gray murk.
Okay, well, I’ve never seen fog – I live in Arizona – but this is how I imagine it. Yup. I hope I actually know what a metaphor is….
Metaphor for fog is a giants breath
I’d call it a wet blanket, as in “The heavy mist mugged me like a wet blanket”. Or you could personify it and make it creepy, like “I could feel the warm mist in the air, stroking my face”. Or if you want something gentler, try gossamer, as in “The gossamer mist made the world feel small and close”.
A blanket or sheet, a screen, milk or any type of murky water, sea foam,
Soup or soupy?
