#18 Valley of the Dolls

These are some dolls I have done and or still working on. 
Thrift stores are a great place to find old dolls for very little money.

This is a porcelain doll I have recently taken apart, and painting.
Spray paint works really good for  porcelain dolls.

Actually porcelain dolls are pretty creepy as is.

Baby dolls are only a dollar or two at the thrift store, and the easiest to find.
Simply creeped up with a little acrylic paint and demented imagination.

Here I got a little carried away making over this one. But he was just begging to be Pinhead.

He's cuddly, He's adorable, he will tear your soul apart!

#17 Black and White

This is just an easy project but I love the way it looks.

All I did was collect images of classic black and white horror films online,
 print them up,
 and frame them in black frames.

Here they are in my old powder room. I kept it like this year round.

Hard to see.. that's the Phantom of the opera and a fun picture of Vincent Price and others in coffins reading the paper

there are some more the Wicked Witch, the Mummy, and Lon Chaney in "London after Midnight'

More Lon Chaney, Creature from the black Lagoon, Christopher Lee

 The dollar store is a good place for cheap frames.

The Bride and the Monster

Dracula, Peter Cushing, more Vincent, the Wolfman is up there too.

The Birds and the Bad seed

This year I put them in my family room in a collage on the walls.
