Eagan Tilghman – a teenager from Mississippi – posted a handful of seriously wicked pictures from a photoshoot he had with his 3-year-old brother, Louie, on Facebook recently. Louie posed dressed up as the legendary sinister clown, Pennywise, from Stephen King’s It, and he has truly gifted the world through this spine-chilling photo shoot!
Eagan has been dressing up all of his siblings in iconic costumes for photo shoots since last year. He told Mashable that the idea for Pennywise in particular actually came from a different iconic movie character, “It all started because my other brother, Hosea, who is four, wanted me to paint his face like the Joker. I did and we just had the idea to dress Louie up and take a few pictures.” Like the Joker – if only we all could have been that cool at four!

Hi-ya, Georgie! Louie is ready for you to come and play!
Though this isn’t Eagan’s first time doing this, the 17-year-old says that this is the first photoshoot to have ever gained as much attention as it did – the fact that the remake of this classic film will be released September 8 is probably a helpful factor, and that there’s major hype about it!
Here’s one for those worry-warts who can’t seem to get their minds off of it – don’t worry, the parents are fully aware of these artistic photo shoots. In fact, they’re even supportive of it!
These photos are worth every second of your time, and every second of your nightmares!
