An Italian Company Wants To Put A Synthesizer On Your Wrist For $540

Just when we thought pocket-size is the smallest a synthesizer can get, one Italian company called Audioweld (who has watchmaking background, btw) takes synthesizer to the next level of small.

Child Pulling Off A Carry Her Own Head Costume Is Next Level Of Creepy

Well, if this isn’t the creepiest child Halloween costume ever. Headless costumes are not new, but when a child pulls it off, it is a whole new level of creep. It reminds me of Japanese horror flicks that involves child spirits.

With an appropriate makeup, along with not-so-subtle blood spill off from the supposed “severed” neck, the effect was pretty damn dramatic.
