Creepy Doll

She is creepy because she has no eyebrows and her eyes are asymmetrical. She shows no emotion.

I used watercolour pencils for shading on her face and I went a little crazy with fabric scraps on her body.

I loved working on her, but here's what ticked me off. I started to stuff her with polyfil. I ran out of this great batting I had been using on other projects, so I switched over to some fill I had recently purchased from Wal-Mart. Curses on Wal-Mart again. This batting was horrible. I just couldn't get a smooth even distribution without a great deal of effort. All I can say is that I am glad I didn't buy the large bag of this useless stuff for $15.00 and that I only shelled out $5.00.

This dolly was part of a birthday present I made for my friend who shares my love of old movies. At least once a week we get together to watch an old film from the 30s, 40s or 50s. We figure how can you go wrong with Joan Crawford, Bette Davis or Barbara Stanwyck.

She turned out cute but I don't find her spooky. Just for the movies you and your friend watch-Bravo! What a great way to entertain yourselves. I love the oldies.

She's great! The face is a little unusual and you can tell that something is not quite right with her.

Love the old movies - the wardrobes were amazing for both the men and women!

Hi Inga,
Love the doll... Love the face.. Nice work,
I enjoy the old movies too. the clothes were so beautiful, and the bedroom scenes were left up to the imagination!!!!!

Hello Inga, your doll is beautiful, and I am hearing you on the old movies, perhaps you could make a doll inspired by those silver screen sirens?
Love to you and yours <3
