Forget about The Walking Dead and make way for ‘The Swimming Dead’. I’ve been working on this ‘Zombie Mermaid Doll‘ for the past couple of weeks as part of the IGGPPC IggleCraftClub October Challenge. Finally I’ve finished just in time for Halloween!
I’ve been collecting dolls for about 7 years or so and I especially enjoy creating custom dolls, my favourites are the crazy looking ones as you may be able to tell. 😉
My collection consists mainly of Barbie Collector dolls, which I will share in a future post, I have an awesome Captain Jack Sparrow doll!
This Zombie Mermaid Doll draws inspiration from Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and old school blue coloured zombies. You probably wouldn’t guess, but she started out as a Disney/Simba Princess Belle doll. It was only this afternoon that I decided she would be a mermaid zombie. My first thoughts were to have her sitting up out of a coffin as a normal zombie, with arms outstretched but I just didn’t have the time.
I’m going to go into more detail on how I put her together on my doll blog, but for now here are some more photos of her and some of my Halloween decorations.
Once a beautiful Princess, Belle spent her time in her favourite place, the library. One day the other Princesses invited her to spend some time at the beach, she wishes she hadn’t gone….
Do you buy or make your Halloween decorations?
