A lot of parents may have shown "The Dark Crystal" to their young children because of this thought process: "Jim Henson and Frank Oz directed this? Must be for kids!" 

Not surprisingly, the Skeksis hold a special place in the hearts of those formerly young children, because of their nightmares now.

So imagine the awe, the terror, the wonder, the insane mixed bag of emotions anyone who saw this incredible cosplayer walking the streets of San Diego's Comic-Con felt. 


Yessss. Essence! #sdcc2015 #sdcc #skeksis
