Can someone tell me where Slenderman came from? I'm probably going to get thumbed down but i've been wondering this since he's gained prominence.

The first time I saw him was in a youtube series called "Marble Hornets" or something like that, and I saw somewhere that was where he came from. The show is pretty great too, and scary.

I read some where they were having some "who could come up with a scary monster/person/thing/story" contest on halloween and thats where he came up from. I think he won seconds place.

Don't quote me on this.

My understanding was that he was part of a contest on SomethingAwful to create the best photoshopped monster. I know he was also the subject of a series of amateur horror videos uploaded to YouTube under the alias of the "Marble Hornets" project. I'm not terribly clear on the details, but a quick Google search should solve those problems for you if you don't mind reading. If you do mind reading, though, I'm not sure how you made it through this far.

I went on wikipedia and it just mentioned his promonence on the internet and his appearance, not his origins.

He is also a direct derivation of a number of Germanic folk lore being and fairy tale creatures. Look into German mythology, in particular the Erl Koning, or Elf King. Bears a striking resemblance to Slendy.
