A 7-year-old defies all norms for girls her age as she is more scared of gender norms than scary movies.

Coral DeGraves likes to dress up as the biggest horror icons with the help of her mom Cheyenne, who has helped her daughter to cosplay over 60 iconic and terrifying characters most of us can recognize.

Coral’s inclination for gore became clear when she was still just a toddler and she expressed an interest in the main villain from the slasher film franchise Child’s Play. Coral’s mom, though surprised, still obliged her daughter’s request as she saw no problem with it.

Coral’s obsession with horror movies became clear when she was just two years old and it's still strong to this day as she continues to surprise her friends with new cosplays quite often.

Bored Panda reached out to Cheyenne, Coral's mom to find out a little bit more. First, we wanted to know how long does one cosplay takes to prepare from start to finish.

"Depending on the cosplay, it can take anywhere from minutes to days to complete. For instance, The Crow cosplay took about 15 minutes to put together, while Pinhead (Hellraiser) took roughly a combined 20 hours from start to finish. Some cosplays have to be worked on in stages, so we’re typically making 1-3 pieces at any given time."

Why so serious?

How do you both decide on what cosplay you will do next?

"We have a list that we both add ideas to. They’re never really put in any specific order so lots of times it’s whatever Coral decides to choose first."

Are there any taboos when it comes to cosplaying horror icons?

"There’s always some type of taboo with horror art. Especially when women and children are thrown in the mix. It’s hard for most people to understand that girls like scary things too!"

How do people mostly react to Coral dressing up in various costumes?

"The reactions we receive vary across the board. Most people are supportive and really get a kick out of what we create. Of course, there’s always going to be those who are negative. Fortunately, we don’t encounter much negativity."

What part of the whole dressing-up process is the most enjoyable for you both?

"Our favorite part of costuming is seeing the finished piece put together for the first time with makeup and props. It’s the payoff of all of our hard work."

What inspired you guys to start an Instagram page?

"Our Instagram page came to be after sharing these projects with friends and family! These projects initially were just for fun, but we received a lot of encouragement to create an IG account!"
