This Photoshop master sliced his head in half for Halloween
Halloween costumes are overrated. You spend too much on a giant banana suit, wear it for one mediocre party, and then leave it on your floor for a month because you can’t bring yourself to throw it away. If you love spooking the shit out of kids but can’t sew, you’ve got another option: slice your head in half. With Photoshop, of course.

Here’s how he did it:
Obviously Photoshop, not a band saw accident. Four photos shot with tripod (important): A background plate with just the room and no me. A photo of me looking forward with a smile. A photo of me with my head back and my hand on my head. A photo of a dead guy's head sliced in two.
In the past few Halloweens, he’s gone microscopic:
And shaved a little too closely:
“Let me know if you want some tips,” he says. “I’m happy to oblige. :)”
You should take him up on it. Digital editing is Maffitt’s life. He “teaches this stuff,” he says, and when Photoshop first came out, he got a gig making “creepy paintings for a bar in Manhattan … all spooky variations on classic art.”
I love this guy. He might be my favorite redditor of the year. Here he is holding his childhood rabbit.
