A day late...

I'm so glad that I actually finished my zombie in time! When I signed up I had no idea that I would be away from home so much due to a very active fire season. I'm going to mail tomorrow because I'm on duty today. My zombie ended up being oober sweet and not even a hint of scary which is perfect. I will try to post a photo tomorrow but if not hopefully my partner will.

Humpty Zombie sat on a wall!

 Humpty Zombie had a great fall all the king horses and all the kings zombies couldn't put humpty together again.

A little sneak peek at who will be arriving soon at Sherry's door step along with other fun goodies.


What's it gonna be???

Well... Creative!

Zombies in Story Book Land Doll Sneak Peek... Kinda, Sorta

This is a cross post for the Zombie Storybook Doll Swap
 I am having such a great time with this swap! I love dolls, all kinds of dolls and fairytale/storybook dolls are such a delight. There are so many interpretations of their stories that you can really let your creativity run wild when you are creating one and when you add in the zombie aspect… well how can you go wrong??
Since I want my little storybook doll’s new mama to be surprised I am only going to show you a couple of pictures, we can’t have her miss the thrill of discovering the doll created specifically for her.
Something I’ve found quite enjoyable is that as I have been creating this sweet little doll I didn’t have to worry about the “pretty” factor. Usually I am trying for something feminine, and that doesn’t always work, this time I have the Zombie factor to work with and boy has it been fun! Blood and gore, no worries about a crooked, well, anything. Whatever I do works! I am almost finished costuming her and then I get to zombify her clothes, what fun!
I can’t wait to show you what I’ve done… here are a couple of pictures to show you a little bit of the work that has been going on…

Some of the supplies

Making a pattern

She really needs a manicure

My family is a little worried about me, lately, when I am working in the studio they overhear crazy laughter and mumblings of blood and bones, torn skin and braaains…
Thanks for checking her out, I’ll post a picture of the complete doll at the end of the month once she has arrived at her new home.

The spirit of Vintage Halloween

I have been looking at some vintage Halloween images online - just to get into the spirit of it all for the swap.

I've come across some strange & some sweet - I thought I share them with you here.

(I have also come across something yucky to make - plus have been trying to take some not too revealing images of my doll's progress - will post those up too... soon!)

I hope everyone is having as much fun with the doll making as I am - cannot wait for the big reveal!
