Inspiration: Coraline ( Buttoned Eyes)

Based on the horror novella by Neil Gaiman, Coraline is an American Stop Motion Animation with a rather dark character. The story is about an adventurous girl who finds another world that is a strangely idealized version of her frustrating home, but it has sinister secrets. The characters in this "other world", have a main characteristic: Button Eyes. It is interesting how scary the image of buttoned eyes is. I guess it's because the eyes show the person's orientation and focus point. The buttos are a cover, a sort of boundary between the the person and the spectator.
