Yes, I am creeped out when it comes to Horror Dolls.
As a young child, I remember being in the same room with my older brother and sister as they watched Nightmare Theater on TV one friday night. It was an old black and white movie which made it even creepier in my mind. I don’t remember much about the movie or even the title, but I remember it was about a doll that kept moving from room to room on its own and the person staying in the room always ended up dead.
You never saw the doll move, but it kept ending up in different places. At the end of the show as everyone was certain that the heinous crimes had been solved, you saw a shot of the doll sitting in a rocking chair and the chair suddenly started rocking on its own.
I have never looked upon a doll in the same way ever again in my life. Even the cutest of dolls still give me the creeps. Lucky me, I had a mom who collected dolls and had a room with a high shelf going completely around the room with hundreds of dolls all sitting there staring at you as you entered the room. Add that to a bed full of dolls and a glass curio cabinet also full of dolls and you have the makings of a classic horror movie.
I avoided that room as if it was possessed. I even wrote about it in one of my blogs. I will never forget the phone call from my dad to ask me to come help clean up the mess as all the glass in the curio cabinet exploded out into the room one night. Not one stitch of glass was inside the cabinet as it was obvious that the glass blew outwards. I walked into that room and all the dolls in the cabinet had a look of smugness as if saying “Job well done”.
I am introducing some new dolls that I really am having fun doing a remake on. I have been taking old unwanted porcelain collector dolls and transforming them into fun Halloween Horror Dolls.
I want you to know that I didn’t need much of an imagination as I was doing these because in my mind every one of the dolls in my moms doll collection looked just like these.
Other people may not have seen them the way I did. I just had a better understanding of what was really inside of each of them.
I hope you enjoy these and don’t forget to check them out in my store right here. They can be yours and I promise to ship them out fast so they can quit haunting me. I’m sure they would be just as excited to get a new home as I would be to get them out of mine!
