This awesomely terrifying cosplay the Other Mother from Coraline is the work of German cosplayer and artist MissTrissi.

According to a friend of hers on Reddit, MissTrisi made the dress entirely out of paper and had to be glued into it with the help of friends.

The award for freakiest Halloween costume of 2016 goes to Indiana artist Carl Leck of CBL Imagery, who turned himself into the terrifying Demogorgon from Stranger Things.

Leck created a full-body costume that both looks just like the extra-dimensional monster and features a mechanism that enables him to open the Demogorgon’s nightmarish toothy-flower mouth by flicking his wrist. Watch it in action here:
