I’ve always been creepily intrigued by certain dolls… I enjoy writing stories about them. Many times, I scare myself half to death… which is why I try to avoid writing about the stiff and creepy toys *grin* in the middle of the night. The following is an excerpt from the story I’m writing (during the day) for Tabitha Lenox’s Haunted Halloween Doll Challenge:
“Mirror, mirror on the wall
take his breath to the Dark Doll
I give song
and also blood
she’ll give flesh mixed with bone
Mirror, Mirror on the wall
let her be so he’s no more”
I’m totally excited (and a bit creeped out) about the tale! And about the dolls in short article BookGirl shared with me. He is a quote from the article in question:
“Don Julian used to say he was haunted by the ghost of the little girl who had drowned in one of the canals around the island. Some say he used to fish the dolls from the water because he though[t] they were real children, but the truth is he was collecting and placing them around his home as a shrine for the spirit that tormented him… in 2001 Don Julian Santana was found dead… in the same canal that he said the little girl drowned in.” ~ Mexico’s Island of the Dolls Is Beyond Creepy
haunting, isn’t it?
Fly over to Marfi’s Haunted Humpday, and get your creep on, my Wicked Luvs… Boo!
