Why Doll Making is Slightly Creepy

In my opinion, it’s the body parts. Arms, legs, heads, sitting on the countertop.  Granted, these I’m working on aren’t life-like or realistic, but still… it’s just a bit creepy.

Like lots of other people, I saw the movie Coraline this weekend, and I can’t wait to see if there’s a resurgence in doll making.  Or will it just be creepy doll making?  If you’re reading this, I’m curious if you’ll be making any dolls in the near future.  What was your inspiration?

The pattern above isn’t mine, it’s a freebie you can get here.

  1. Well.....sometimes I like creepy or unusual. Though I do find that when I sell dolls they are the pretty ones that get taken first. YET, there seems to be someone who likes the unusual. I can't wait to have some time off to see Coraline. Looks wonderful


Thanks for stopping by!
