Greatest Halloween Ever

This post is a little late, but as the saying goes, better late than never! Some of you will remember from a while back the swap I was doing with my amazing friend Vany leading up to Halloween.

Well on about the 9th day I received a card from Vany telling me that the last few days of the swap were all related - so I could choose either to wait and open everything on the very last day or I could keep opening day by day.

On the last days leading up to the swap I was opening packaged of bloodied dolls clothes and tiny accessories - then on the last day I found myself face to face with a couple that seemed so familiar....
It's zombie Trees & zombie Rich!! It's so amazing!! The dolls are beautifully made, I love them so much.

Here's a few details of zombie Trees
Close up of her face - she even has hair extensions like me!
A bit of brain hanging out the back...
Close up of her bloodied rib cage.
Cute ballerina flats are an absolute must for the zombie about town!

Next up - a few details of zombie Rich.
He has a bit of a sore eye, not sure why?
He's wearing a robot t-shirt and the real Rich loves robots.
The real Rich likes to sketch, so zombie Rich has a bloodied notebook and some tiny pencils.

Finally - the real Rich loves his converse sneakers and so does zombie Rich.

Oh how awesome! And they are poppets! So jealous- I've always wanted a poppet, but I've never really figured out the pattern. She did a great job on them.

@ Meg - I've always thought poppets were cool too! But something way beyond my sewing skills. Now I have pretty much the greatest poppets in the world!

@ Alicia - I am sure loads of people would want to see themselves in zombie form! I love how she captured our personal style so well, right down to the ballerina flats and converse sneakers!

@Vix - Vany is pretty much the most bad arse crafter in the world!

@Cb - I know she could TOTALLY sell these, I know people would pay big money for them (ok I would pay a lot of money for them!)

@Olivia - To the best of my knowledge Vany just crafts for friends, family & fun:D But who knows, maybe she would be willing to make you one, let me know if you want me to pass on your details to her.

@ Pop Champagne - Aren't these little guys the perfect marriage of creepy & cute:)

dunia kecil indi - Thanks so much for the comment:D
