A Vintage Red Halloween 2013

My favorite Halloween doll  picture - ever - and the first doll picture that was taken of one from  my early collection ( when my collection contained - ahem - about ten dolls ) Please note that THIS is the fearful doll that creeps out my BFF friend Annie and makes her cover her eyes. : o

Halloween Whimsy 'n Spice dolls

Sharing a little Halloween whimsy 'n spice and I am not referring to my favorite online cookie shop in the Bronx - which reminds me that I must order some of their delish pepper shortbreads w/ chocolate currant filling. No - my whimsy means the sweet little Jenny and Lexie dolls  by Heather Maciak wearing their Halloween frock and jumper fashions by Jo's Doll Shoppe. The little treat bag is by Nikki UK. The spice is added by the Drearys who accompanied them their Halloween adventures 2013.

The Halloween is in the dress motif

This duo is from Paulette Goordreau and a size comparison picture (for AM). As for the Halloween flavor - Holly's dress has lightning bolts ( or maybe they're bats) on it and the fashion on Kerli (crafted for ME Ann Estelle) is a candy corn theme on front of jumper and fabric pattern.

Halloween 2013 Joe Bourland Gypsy Style

This doll was my first OOAK - repaint. Created by the doll artist Joe Bourland - who now specializes in reborn dolls. The two games surrounding the doll were purchased at Indian Hill Antiques more than 30 years ago. The felt, brown bat pillow by Brandon Wilkes.

Poor little apple doll. Overlooked on Ebay at a low 10 dollars. Was she telling me - in her own way - that she wanted to stay in Drearydom?

That darling little redhead in the center - a dear friend is truly afraid of her. That's when I named her Tulah the Terror!

This Halloween the Kish Kids are wearing bewitching attire from a retired Goodreau line. Most Goodreau fashions for 8" BJDs and Paulette Snappy line fit the dolls very well. These costumes were five dollars each - a bargain in doll dollars.

One is silver -

They are lovely. Even if Another Dreary day should be called (Shout out and thank you to Derek)Little House on the Dreary. ( Didn't Tiny Betsy or the new Patsy wear that dress events ago?) And I Dream of Dreary would have been better as Lavender Blue Silly Silly. The dark stockings are too heavy for the fragile shoes closed with teensy tiny ultra mini pearl buttons. Silly of the designers to combine them. I also worry that these girls will experience the Black Leg like their previous Dreary kin. Fortunately I have no plans to re-dress these two, so I'll never know.

Meet the 2 new Drearys posed with the first Agnes and Viktor. You can decide who should be silver or gold. (Click on pictures to enlarge)

AHS Pepper Doll?

Possibly? Yup - I think this could happen in the hands of the right doll artist.

Nefer Kane's Kitty Mouse:

Could become PEPPER!

Any artists willing?
