They're Here!



Introducing, the Decapitated Dollies! This is the new line that I've been going on about for months now... :)

The whole idea behind starting the line was the fact that people are always telling me that I'm not really scary. And I suppose that's true. But I wanted to have something in my shop that fit the same "ScaryWhiteGirl." So the first thing I made was a LARGE version of what has become the Decapitated Dollies. This was going to be my new mascot. Jerome was sufficiently creeped out by the fact that I made a crocheted head that vaguely resembles me, so I declared myself accomplished at my goal.

However, the large version took me a long time to make, and is about the size of a grapefruit (plus hair). So I scaled it down a bit for the line that I'm going to sell on Etsy. Of course, if someone really wants a grapefruit sized Decapitated Dollie, and is willing to pay for the larger version, I'd happily make more. :)

You can see the large version in my banner and avatar on Etsy, and more of the smaller versions will be popping up in the shop this week. I started with Nightshade, the zombie Decapitated Dollie, because she's probably my favorite of the small ones. I think there will be many more zombies to come. :)

This reminds me of when I was a little girl. I used to shave my dolls bald and rip their heads off. I was a bit of a tomboy. LOL

dharma: That rocks. :) I just used to chew on my plastic dolls, and accidentally bite off their fingers and such. :)
