Twisted clowns terrify a lot of children, but twisted child clowns easily petrify most adults, too. 17-year-old Mississippi photographer Eagan Tilghman has released pictures of a creative photoshoot with his 3-year-old brother Louie, and the results look nightmarishly realistic.
Eagan dressed Louie up as Pennywise from Stephen King’s “It.” The 17-year-old did everything himself, including makeup and creating the chilling costume. Everything was so well produced that even Andy Muschietti, the director for the upcoming movie remake of “It,” appreciated Eagan’s Instagram post with a like.
The terrifying three’s: Louie became unrecognizable thanks to fire-orange hair spray, white face makeup, black and red stained lips, a dark smudged nose, and two vertical stripes that ran from his forehead down to his mouth.
The photoshoot even took Louie into the water in a shot that displays his body submerged, save for a menacing face.
Say cheese: Although the costume was uncannily similar to Hollywood’s evil clown, the tot’s adorable smile shone through.
