“You know, you could stay forever, if you want to. There’s one tiny thing we have to do first…“

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.

It’s easy to forget how vast and deep the ocean really is. About 60% of it is actually a cold and dark region known as the deep ocean. And it reaches down to 11,000 meters. Yet, this remote zone is also one of the greatest habitats on Earth, harboring a huge diversity of life, from giant squids and goblin sharks to minuscule animals smaller than a millimeter. How do so many species thrive in this underwater world? Over the decades, intrepid scientists have ventured there to find out. Traveling down through the water column, pressure increases and light begins to wane. At 200 meters, photosynthesis stops and temperature decreases from surface temperatures by up to 20 degrees Celsius. By 1000 meters, normal sunlight has disappeared altogether. Without light, life as we know it seems impossible.

But, plunge deep enough and you’ll find fish with cavernous mouths, spiky teeth jutting from their jaws, and lamp-like structures protruding from their heads, like the anglerfish which entices prey with its misleading glow. What else calls the deep ocean home?

One of the most benign and pleasant things in the world, the humble LEGO minifig, has now become the stuff of awesomely impressive nightmares. Special effects artist Frank Ippolito and the folks at Tested teamed up to create a real-life LEGO minifig, which they debuted last week at the 2016 San Diego Comic-con.

As you’ll see in this video, the fleshy face with its big, round black eyes is already plenty unsettling, but those claws are downright terrifying.&

So! Who wants a hug?
