Wow.
Armlessness doesn't effect their maniacal joy one bit.

It's unsettlingly rock solid emotion.
It's sunny, sticky-sweet darkness
It's mournful satisfaction.
It's a capture of a mindset I've always known would improve my social life
but being this happy would make me want to kill myself in the end.

kudos to the artist who designed these ladies.

LOVE this piece and all the many things it can translate.
Great capture.

As if mannequins weren't unnerving enough. Why all the effort into detailed faces, but no arms? Uncanny Valley ahoy!

:iconohshitplz: They remind me of those comedy/tragedy masks, only worse, lol.

This is what I see when I look at fake smiles.
Sad and funny at the same time.
