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.

Maya Hwang, aged two-and-a-half, 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.

In additional footage seen here, little Maya even explains to her muther that she wants to dress up as "headless."

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.''
