Great links: David Flora of "Blurry Photos" reads "Eight Feet Tall"

If Slender Man is looking for a soulmate, Hachishakusama might be a good fit.

Like Slender Man, Hachishakusama is a creepypasta-borne legend, and she's a little older — dating back to an online debut in Japan in the summer of 2008, which is nearly a year before Slender Man burst onto the scene.

Hachishakusama supposedly means Eight Feet Tall, but I don't want to say anything more or spoil any of the spooky tale that surrounds her.

There's a terrific version of the urban legend available on Scary For Kids. But, if you can, I highly recommend that you listen to the version that's read by Blurry Photos podcast host David Flora. He's a Chicago-based actor, and his skills are on full display with his telling of the ghost story.

"Eight Feet Tall" is the first story in Episode 216, "Campfire Ghost Stories 6," which was originally posted in August. Give it a listen.

You might want to have the lights on, though.
