This 'headless' little girl is ready for Halloween

This adorable toddler has the year's best Halloween costume - it looks like she's carrying her own severed head on a plate.

Two-year-old Maya Hwang wore the epic costume which was designed by her mother, Krystel, who spent two days making it. She made a floral dress with an opening in the chest which allows Maya's head to poke through. An extension on the back of the dress creates the appearance of a ghoul whose head has been chopped off.

Older sister Charlie, aged six, then walks alongside Maya while holding a knife - and of course, an empty pumpkin basket to collect trick-or-treat gifts.

Maya wowed friends in Paranaque City, Philippines, at a costume competition. And a video of them bringing terror to their hometown of South Bay Village has reached more than 20 million views.

Proud mum Krystel said: ''I used mostly duct tape and paper to make the costume and both my daughters were involved in the creation. I get ideas from them and they get to be creative.''
