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. Mum Krystel Hwang dressed up her sweet daughter, Maya, in a flowered dress, which was nothing shocking until you realize this child was without a head. She was “carrying” her own head. With an appropriate makeup, along with not-so-subtle blood spill off from the supposed “severed” neck, the effect was pretty damn dramatic.

Photographer Proved That Iceberg Ice Can Focus Light To Capture Images

Camera lenses are made of glass, or in the case of some low-fi imaging devices, plastic. Whether it is of glass or plastic, they both have one thing in common: a clear, transparent material that allows light to be focused. We didn’t think other than those materials, there are anything else that could do the job, until now. What you see here is a camera lens that has optics made out of ice from an iceberg. Out of curiosity, photographer Mathieu Stern decided to experiment if ice could focus light and took six months to realize a working iceberg camera lens.
