Electra Costa

Children scare easily, they see things adults cannot see. Electra Costa wants to find out why.  Are these spectres simply the product of young, over-active imaginations? Or have our older eyes trained themselves to ignore those things which we fear most?
It is hard to decide what might be more alarming; a giant rabbit, bear or bogeyman? Or some weirdo dressed as one? The same scene might trigger a nostalgic excitement in an adult sensibility, whilst painting a picture of perfect terror for a child less au fait with this retro aesthetic.
