A 17-year-old from Meridian Mississippi turned his 3-year-old little brother, into the iconic clown from Stephen King’s ‘It‘ and it’s giving everyone nightmares.
Featured by Scarymommy, Eagan Tilghman dressed up his brother Louie as Pennywise then took pictures and posted them on Instagram. Because he says, he was just bored.

It’s clear from his social media accounts that Eagan’s a big fan of the novel from which his inspiration sprang. And while he’s chosen a different medium to express his creativity, we can see his talent is frighteningly impressive.
Just wanted to put these out there one more time to explain, this is my mind. Like it's very rare for me to be able to…
With the terrifying photos, some people might be unsettling on him. However, he says not to worry. It’s not all unsettling images in his brain. He posted other images showing a cuter side of the clown.
He also assures his followers that the toddler is far less frightening in real-life, without “all the clown makeup and forehead modifications”. The side-by-side images he shared of his adorable sibling is proof enough.
Well, this sure has been a day, and these pictures have really blown up. So here's a side by side of Louie. My little brother behind all the clown makeup and forehead modifications. He's actually quite adorable compared to his portrayal of pennywise. So as you can tell, he's pretty serious about staying in character. #pennywise #pennywisethedancingclown #itbook #itmovie #stephenking #youllfloattoo
