Hyperrealistic mask-maker Landon Meier's eye for the uncanny saw him unleash a shocking hybrid between full-grown man and young girl upon convention-goers at Monsterpalooza 2017 this past April. Now, you can watch a video showcasing his pure delight at freaking people out with the mask below.

Meier is known for his incredibly realistic baby masks, for imitating political figures like Donald Trump, Vladmir Putin, and Kim Jong Un, and for a Walter White costume that Bryan Cranston wore to Comic Con, secretly reprising his role as the Breaking Bad lead. The dead-eyed little girl mask is the latest in his shocking oeuvre of stolen faces that never fail to elicit a reaction from anyone who sees them in person.

Meier tells Creators, "I've always been fascinated with surrealism, and I really enjoy seeing the wrong face on the wrong body!" See how his faces clash with their host bodies in the images below.
