Zombie dolls: anatomical annie and butcher boy bob.. now with pictures
I did these dolls last month and have been saving them to post for
Craftster's "Zombies, Robots and Bears.. Oh My!" contest..
I got the doll parts last spring while thrifting for a whooping dollar for 2 sets. I also thrifted the wool felty and the stuffing.. I made the patterns for the bodies and stitched it on the sewing machine, Then I hand stitched the limbs in place. When I was done I had these tiny strange blank canvases. I didn't feel like making frilly little clothes for them. I wanted them to be a little wierd. Or wierd in a different way
The girl doll was easy.
I have a small collection of female anatomical models, like "The Invisible Woman" model and another teaching model that at 2.5 feet tall, is more formidable.
I have a rubber stamp that I use on tags sometimes, and a couple of spooky postcards. Annie has sisters waiting for her at my house.
The boy was harder, but with the flat white body, he looked ripe for dissection.
Yes. It's a little disturbing. But I find overly frilly dolls to be a bit disturbing in their own right.
With that said I almost fell off my chair when i saw the fearsome frills of this entry by Aiar :
Zombie Ballet Corp(se)
Oh did I mention I am extremely into Halloween?
But you probably picked up on that.
