Unsettling photographs of people dressed in scary costumes, holding taxidermy animals

Some people are afraid of the dark, whilst others break out in a cold sweat over heights. No matter what your deepest, darkest fears are, I'm guessing the majority will find Wounderland by Belgium-based art duo Mothmeister utterly terrifying.

The unsettling photography project features bizarre subjects dressed in horrifying costumes, posed alongside taxidermy animals. The concept of the series is in part response to the "selfie" culture that now dominates the web, alongside our often contradictory opinions on the notion of "beauty".

For any fans of the show American Horror Story, this is sure to be right up your street. Apologies in advance for the nightmares.

You can find more from the artists on their Instagram account and via Etsy.
