Creepy dolls are nothing new and I have already done several, both baby and also the more Victorian-looking girl dolls in dresses. But the girl dolls really look best with only slight alteration, mainly involving repainting the face and hands. The baby dolls, however, offer far more possibility. Here are the three I just finished:
Besides repainting the entire thing, I switched the hands to a pair of sinister-looking action figure hands, cut out the eyes and stomach, filled the hollow with steel wool, and added a kind of techno-alien insect parasite.
Switching gears to something more surreal and demonic, this doll was an indulgence in how many places I could add the leftover eyes from my other doll projects. I also re-used the hands from the previous doll along with some others I had laying around. I also gave this one a pair of wings left over from one of my old action figure projects.
The last doll was quite large and its body was all soft cloth and stuffing. Initially I planned to paint the cloth, switch the soft holofill to excelsior and add protruding mechanical skeletal limbs poking out from the stuffing.........a lot of work. So I just said "fuck it. I'm making you into a candy dish."
I had the brain on my table already, and it fit perfectly. Currently the cavity is filled with Milky Way bars and the brain is resting on them like a loose lid.
