Young Kid Dresses Up In ‘It’ Costume And It’s Scarier Than The Movie

Much has been said about just how scary the new It movie is, with original author Stephen King admitting he was blown away by how good the film adaptation is.

The 1986 book and subsequent 1990 TV miniseries saw people dress up in their own versions of Pennywise, but virtually all of them cannot compare to Eagan Tilghman's brother.

Eagan apparently 'got bored' and decided to slap some white make-up on his younger sibling and attach some red balloons and the result is equal parts adorable and terrifying.

The post has been liked and shared by nearly six thousand people, with many freaked out at the likeness between his brother and actor Bill Skarsgård's clown Pennywise.

He also uploaded the photoshoot to Instagram, which was liked by It's director Andy Muschietti. In a separate post, Eagan says: "This is my mind. Like it's very rare for me to be able to put my artistic vision out there and it be portrayed correctly. My pictures never really look like I want them to. Don't get me wrong, I love creepy clowns but my mind isn't just scary clowns and unsettling images.

"But the creativity in my head almost feels like it flows off of my fingertips. You can see an image and feel things with it, and I'm proud to say these are perfect, therefore they're a perfect little glimpse into how I see the world."

The Mississippian is incredibly talented for his young age, using his skills to decorate walls as well as create costumes for other youngsters.

Maybe the next time someone wants to adapt Stephen King's legendary book, they'll consider making Pennywise a young child. Which could work quite well considering the protagonists, The Losers' Club, are young kids as well.

The new film will be released in Belgium and Germany next week before it heads to the UK and US. King got a sneak peak, telling Bloody Disgusting. "It's something that's different, and at the same time, it's something that audiences are gonna relate to. They're gonna like the characters.

"To me, it's all about character. If you like the characters... if you care... the scares generally work. I'm sure my fans will enjoy the movie. And I think some of them will go back two or three times and actually savour the thing.

"I went back and saw it a second time, and I felt I was seeing things the second time through that I missed the first time."
