I didn’t buy anything special or spend any money on it - this is just shit from our house that I repurposed. I used a pair of old jeans for the VooDoo doll’s jeans, wool roving, food coloring and lemon juice for the hair, a dust rag for the body and head, stuffing from an old pillow and a pair of buttons that we had tucked away in a drawer. One of my favorite parts is that the buttons, close-up, say ‘Reaction’ on them. I have never actually sewn anything professionally before in my life, so forgive my terrible stitch-work. It just makes it more authentically awful, right?
I draw a ridiculous doll for the comic, K just says, “okay” and makes the damned thing even better than I drew it. I don’t know whether to love her or hate her.
So, here’s a thought: maybe we could make a (very) limited run of these, maybe closer to the holidays. Maybe they’d be a little smaller and therefore cuter, but still have the awesome features, like removable clothes and hand-sewn details. Maybe you guys would like that?
