Ditto that the whole 'slender man' thing is fantastic. I actually thought it was a real photo at first that was a bit blurry and someone just came up with a story to make it "paranormal."

What would be a cool way to continue the theme? Photoshop the slender man into things? MSP him so that it looks like a kid did it after seeing him?

That one kind of has a "pale man" feel, from Pan's Labyrinth. But with clothes.

Images associated with the "Slender Man" phenomenon. Filed under S.MAN. Extracted from journal of missing person *** *******, female, age 23.

Multiple corresponding depictions of humanoid form, multiple mutations or deformations. Several consistent identifying markers, with other traits changing or "transforming" from image to image. Total 32 pages relevant to case.



These are really, really fantastic. I love the face in the first one, especially. It's like he's some sort of thing that's somewhat mimicking a man...but not quite.

If we're standardizing the form my vote goes for this.

This is brilliant and I'd love to hear an actual staged recording of it.

I love the picture and there's something about hearing "the waiting noises just outside" that scares the hell out of me.

I did some digging on the so-called "slender man" and discovered this photo. All it said was that the drawing was found at a day care parking lot.

The Slender Man has many different forms, the closer you are the more human his form, but from a distance he uses his tentacles to travel great distances and scale sheer surfaces.

I really like this idea. It adds a unique element.

poo poo. I officially had my first slenderman nightmare. I don't even remember what it was about other than being panicked that my 2nd graders & I had to get away. :(
