True Tales of Thrifted Terror

"Hi there! Wanna play?"

I've always loved horror moves. Don't ask me why crazed killers, mysteries of the macabre or demonically possessed playthings are appealing. I guess that, in most cases, the horror genre is such an elaborate demonstration of fiction. And maybe it's this totally false imagery and information that I'm attracted seeing just how far the imagination can reach to scare the living crap out us. 

So it's no surprise that I've begun a little collection fit for just this occasion. Welcome to the True Tales of Thrifted Terror. 

And with this thrifted doll, the imagination doesn't have to reach very far at all. Just look at it. 

Oddly reminiscent of Hannibal. Am I right? 

Evil baby doll says, "I don't do tea parties." 

This porcelain doll was salvaged from the Montgomeryville Impact for $1.50

I don't know much about it except for it's off-set blue eyes, painted lashes and brows, creepy grin and...oh yeah...missing scalp!?!? Maybe it was attacked during some sort of zombie-doll apocalypse? 

Sweet dreams, thrifters. 

Until next time...keep those creepy dolls locked in the basement where they belong. Or just don't buy them in the first place. Leave that to the professionals. Now if you will excuse me, I have to install a new deadbolt on the bedroom door.

That's really quite hideous - could it be one of the spirit dolls I posted about which people try to flog on eBay? Or perhaps just a nice plant in the top of his head?

Hey There, Lakota. I must have missed that post, but I will most definitely check it out! Occasionally I check out "creepy doll" searches on Ebay and those so-called "haunted" spirit dolls always pop up in the search. What gives!?

I actually was thinking of using this little creeper as a planter, lol. I might have to spay some acrylic on it, though. Don't want it to get all moldy from the water.
