People love to collect in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

They collect loot, they collect books, horses and armor. They even collect butterflies in jars. But this guy (I'm assuming he's a him because most serial killers are) likes to collect the bodies of decapitated female companion characters and undress and pose them.

It's just a video from a video game. But the music combined with the fact that this walk-through of a house decorated with the posed, headless bodies of women, is called "Skyrim sex life." makes it feel like something a bit darker.

I hit up the person who posted the video on YouTube to ask if there was more to the video than, you know, super creepy dead lady posing. How did you come up with the idea, I asked.

"hey, I wanted to marry more than one woman but I couldn't :/," was the first response.

That didn't really explain much, so I asked why then decapitate, strip and post them.

"oh well, one thing lead to another. I ended up with a bunch of headless corpses in my house and I thought I might as well pose them. I suppose I was inspired by the Hannibal movies."

I guess he couldn't find any in-game lotion.
