This Little Girl’s Headless Halloween Costume Was So Terrifying, It Scared Away Other Kids Interview With Artist

Halloween just happened and, like any year, the internet was full of neat and creative Halloween costume ideas. Bored Panda has been hard at work to give you a rundown of the best costumes this year, as seen here, here, and here.

But this is the internet and the fun never stops as people continue to share some of the most creative and scariest costumes of this year’s Halloween season.

One such costume, that of a horrific headless creature worn by a little Taiwanese girl, has been going viral recently. And it’s not just horrifying, as you’ll see in a moment.

Facebook user Stoprain Wang, with whom Bored Panda got in touch for an interview, has recently shared his little daughter’s Halloween costume—a headless little girl with a dotted black and white dress soaked with blood, holding her own head on a bloodied napkin. The costume was so scary that it didn’t look like she was collecting candy, but more like haunting this establishment.

But it’s not just aesthetics, but also a very practical costume. You see, the place where her head should be has a sign on it that says “candy entrance,” prompting people to throw candy inside. There’s a special compartment designed for collecting candy, which she was doing with ease.

“When I was looking through Halloween costumes for some ideas, my daughter saw Headless Maya’s picture and said that she wants that costume!” explained Wang the origins of the idea to make the costume. “Then my wife prepared the headless costume for my daughter. For the Halloween event, my daughter said that she was preparing for a show like a little actress.”

While it’s all about “style” with Halloween costumes, this particular one is also “substance”

Speaking of which, judging by the video, she was collecting candy in heaps. People were shoving handfuls of the stuff down the neck hole of the costume. The little girl simply needed to walk around. Easiest candy collection ever!

As you can imagine, the costume was no easy feat: “The biggest challenge was making the headless model’s body look real, be balanced and not too heavy for my daughter. My wife tried to use steel wire and cotton for the body, but both of these materials didn’t work well. Finally, she decided to use hardened paper to create the body’s shape and it looks better. Also, since it’s a little stuffy when wearing the costume, my daughter can’t wear it for a long time.”

The costume is essentially a headless body, the head of which is held in the girl’s “costume hands”

Wang shared photos and video on his Facebook with the caption summing up people’s reactions—“What horror!”, “So great…” and “How did you do it?”, and also explaining that his wife was behind the costume.

“Some children were scared of my daughter in the costume and even ran away when taking pictures with her. Besides that, people thought it’s creepy, but creative because of the design of the ‘Candy Entrance’ at the neck,” elaborated Wang.

“Every year Anita’s work is amazing, and this year the effect is even more amazing! Starting to look forward to Halloween next year.” Wang was especially proud of how well his daughter kept up the act of a horrifying girl—some kids were afraid to get close to her!

But also, the trick here is that she collects the candy effortlessly—people simply throw it into her neck hole

So, how much candy did the little monster collect? We asked Wang about this and he said this: “Her little backpack was full of candy. The sweetest thing, however, was that she separated the candy into several piles and shared them with her brother, grandmother, uncle, aunt and cousin, and only kept a small part of the candy for herself. She’s really a sweet and lovely little girl.”

It wasn’t long until the post started drawing people’s attention online. First, the post garnered over 13,000 reactions with over 17,000 shares, as well as over a thousand comments and over 1.8 million views on the video alone, and then it made its way onto a number of media outlets and social media, getting thousands of reactions and likes.

This is by no means a first of its kind as two years ago, there was also Headless Maya, an analogous headless girl costume except with a different dress and less blood involved. You can see her and a number of other costumes here.
