"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"

Really Spooky, But Vary Tripy;)

ooo very nice.

at first it feels twisted.

but then you can see the child's expectations and youth.

boys and girls of every age...wouldn't you like to see something strange? come with me and you shall see...this our town of Halloween! i love how the title says "the nightmare begins" so we expect fear, but contradictingly the child is "bubbly" and not showing any fear, kind of like it's reaching out to the monster because the child doesn't know it's a monster...that's my take on's wonderful :)
