Tweens To Be Tried As Adults In Slender Man Attack

My Roots scarecrow has surfaced again in affiliation with the dreaded Slender Man.

The caption is hilarious, beings I never heard of Slender Man back when I built him...
"An artist's depiction of the Slender Man, a popular Internet meme."

I find it funny they're still picking up that image as Slenderman. I tried doing my own take on Slendy a few years back (http://faegoria.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/P1030356.jpg). Would LOVE to see what you'd come up with if you were actually aiming to do Slenderman.

That's interesting cause I'd definitely do something that DIDN'T look like Roots.

Ha!!...you were just ahead of your time with that!

It was funny seeing that pic in my news feed this morning, and immediately clicked to see what you were in the news for without reading the headline, then being confused at the actual story wondering what the hell was going on.

i never thought roots to resemble the slender man even with someone using his pic in a slender man article. whenever i think of slender man, i think of how he reminds me of the gentlemen from buffy (very polished & victorian). & when i see roots, i think of something ancient & very earthy, sorta of maybe even celtic but definitely NOT slener man. i guess since roots is long & so mysterious looking they were like hey...here we go.

i can totally imagine roots at stonehenge as the sun goes down.

I've always thought Roots to be on the Celtic side myself. Great analogy G6. Slender Man I would have never thought of. While I'd love to see Rots take I have no clue what it would resemble. I think something reminiscent of Eric Lacombe would be a good start for the character.

hey Jeff...i never heard of that dude before so i just looked him up. wow!!! Super beautiful & cool stuff. Thanks for the tip!! (hey check out francis bacon--the painter--also a similar vibe) yeah, roots is like a tree spirit kinda fellow for sure. too bad we can't ask the druids for their opinion. : D

The Gill-Man said...

I completely concur with Girl6 & Jeff. Roots seems very elemental, while I always thought Slender was much more in keeping with The Gentlemen from Buffy. Don't really see much resemblance between Slender & Roots at all.

Rot said...

i agree. I think this all stems from a slenderman video on youtube where the video maker slapped together tons of images they googled...and that one of Roots was among them.

I too always imagined slender man as a suit-wearing thin creepy alien-type thing.

Visually they are just so different to me. I thought Slender man was supposed to be in a black suit with a blank kind of white face - one of those spirits in clothing, almost pretending to one of the living, but of course he's not really - that kind of thing? (I don't know much about him/his story at all to be honest). Whereas Roots on the other hand is just a nature based badass, haha. He's not pretending to be anything but what he is - and that's what makes him scary, intriguing, and a one of a kind. He's always been one of my favorite of your 'crows.

Sue for millions if they used your image without permission! Think of all the extra Halloween cash that would be! :D
