My friend Jennifer is one of the weirdest people I know. We share passions for Broadway, irreverence, a dark sense of humor, and Halloween. Recently, she shared photos on Facebook of a seemingly harmless doll that she turned into an absolutely terrifying demon of terror. I knew I had to share his advice on how to do it. So this is it. This is how you turn a child’s doll into a kind of doll of the dead for Halloween.
THE FIRST STEP
Jennifer’s first tip is simple. She says, “Buy goodwill baby dolls.” And she makes a point, right? If you absolutely want to destroy a doll, why spend a lot of money on it. The best approach here is inexpensive. Save your money for special effects!
Take duct tape and cover their eyes. Now you might be wondering why the hell you would do this. Well, Jennifer provides a pretty straightforward, if not alarming, explanation. She says, “Because it’s scarier with their normal eyes.”
Undress the dolls and spray them black. Completely black. Let them dry overnight.
After the dolls are painted black and dried, generously cover the babies with the crackle medium, which you will see in the photo gallery below. You need to let it dry, then roughly brush them with white or flesh-colored acrylic paint (see also in the gallery below). Let it dry too. Also, it’s important to note that, according to Jennifer, you could stop here and be done. They are already “scary and cool”. However, there is more Halloween fun and destruction to be had.
Jennifer says that if you’re feeling dashing and particularly ghoulish, you can also “add extra touches like gray or black paint around the eyes, purples or pinks if you want a more worldly baby. Or you can add some more. blood if you would like them to be vampires or else, eating raw chicken maybe “. MDR !!!
This step is the easiest. Remove the masking tape to reveal the natural eye, which looks “super scary”.
Well, Jennifer is right. They are definitely SUPER scary. Looked!
