3-year-old girl's terrifying 'The Nun'-inspired birthday party goes viral, gets shout out from Jordan Peele

A three-year-old child got director Jordan Peele's approval after having a terrifying birthday party inspired by the horror film 'The Nun'. The little girl's birthday party photos have since gone viral on the internet. 

Twitter user @dreeaaxo_ had shared pictures of her little cousin Lucia who was dressed up in a nun's ensemble and had her face painted white with black eyes. The adorable photographs went viral soon after they were posted on social media. The user had captioned the image, "So it was my cousins 3rd birthday and instead of having a normal theme she chose this [sic]."

The post has garnered around more than 120,000 retweets and 530,000 likes ever since it was posted on Tuesday, June 4. The little girl Lucia's look had been inspired by Valak, the demonic nun featured in the 2016 film 'The Conjuring 2' as well as its 2018 spinoff 'The Nun'. In one of the pictures, Lucia is seen holding hands with a human pinata who is also dressed up as a nun. 

Another picture shows Lucia's birthday cake which has been decorated with vanilla frosting and also trimmed in black icing. The top of the cake has Lucia's name written on it in red icing and features a picture of the actual nun from the movie.


Peele, the director of the horror film 'Get Out and Us', was delighted by the pictures and retweeted the post with the caption, "Does she have a Godfather?"

The child also got a shoutout from actress Bonnie Aarons who plays Valak in the movie and wrote, "Happy Birthday Lucia!!! HAPPY EVERY DAY!!" to which Lucia's mother Laura E. Brown responded saying, "Thanks a lot!!! She is such a fan of yours!!!" The official account for AMC's series 'The Walking Dead' also posted three heart emojis in the comments section of the post. 

Lucia maintained her character throughout the party and made it a point not to smile in any of the pictures when she posed. She also had her friends embrace their demons as a few others had their faces painted as well. The Twitter user also shared, "And if anyone was wondering yes her friends also participated in the theme [sic]." Lucia's mother had initially shared the pictures on Facebook and had written, "Like when your daughter turns 3, and her favorite character is the nun. Everything is to see her happy!!!"


Many social media users took to the comments section on the Twitter post and wrote things like, "I fully support whatever decision this child makes for the rest of their life." Another person added, "I’m equal parts scared and delighted tbh." A third user wrote, "She is basically a real-life Wednesday Addams."
