Creepy Dolls are an essential ingredient in any Halloween haunt and one of the great things about sharing your Halloween passion with the local Trick or Treaters is the neighbourhood is only too happy to get involved.
So when I put out a call last year for more dolls to add to my creepy collection, this strange little girl appeared on our doorstep.
This creepy doll was a gift from a local lady who had seen our 2016 Halloween Open House on Facebook and saw that I “made a lot of people happy at Halloween”.
How wonderful is that?
But I’m afraid her poor little girl didn’t stand a chance in the Witch’s lair! She was quickly dismembered and her ceramic head painted and mounted on an egg stand.
Could’ve been worse. Could’ve been a stake.
A ribbon bow tie and one creepy crawly later, and she’s become a permanent nod to the macabre in the Witch at OneandSeventy’s epicentre of magic.
In 2017, she formed part of a spookalicious shelfie that featured handmade spell books, Halloween candles from Sainsbury’s, a hand-painted Halloween coffin decoration from Michael’s, and a skullalicious vulture from the UK’s Retail King of Halloween, Homesense.
Now, she’s with us all year round.
Who says Halloween is only a day?
It may not be a moth, but the fly on the mouth had me in mind of Silence of the Lambs. What do you reckon? I think it adds the perfect final creepy touch to this somewhat strange year-round oddity.
As always, I’d love to know what you think of this project. Do you make creepy dolls for your Halloween decorations? Drop a comment below to let me know, or swing by The Witch at OneandSeventy’s Instagram feed, where you’ll find plenty to feed your Halloween obsession.
