Clearly Jenn and I were secret neighbors. ;D
Bloody Mary made me lose sleep at night when I was little.
This shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone! As a child, I had an irrational fear of ghosts and seeing them in reflections of the bathroom mirror! I refused to shut the door when I took baths or showers. In cases when I had to shut the door, I would sing to myself. :p I’m not sure where it all started? I think hearing stories about bloody mary and watching Candyman when I was 9 didn’t really help. Then I actually had my first paranormal experience when I was kid as well. Since then, I’ve had a fascination with spirits and paranormal activity. This of course, still freaks me out to this day. But, my curiosity for the topic has me seeking for more.
oh man.. OH MAN…
I thought I got over my childhood fear of the Boogieman from the ghost busters cartoon… until I looked for a reference for this contest! I painted this pic only after a quick glance of a picture from the show; then I immediately had to shut off my browser
Going to leave my closet open now… else the boogieman’ll get me! D:
What scared me when I was a kid was folklore from the Philippines; Namely one of a Horseman that terrorize farmers. -Bal
