Spooky, Creepy, Scary (and a little Cute) Art Dolls

Want something collectible to remember this Halloween? Or just want to look at pretty (spooky) things? Most of these art dolls are One Of A Kind (OOAK) and can be bought from Etsy by following the links below. Even if the doll has already been sold, you can check out the other creations made by the same artist in a similar vein. The gallery will be updated every year as shops and links change.

I hope you enjoy them!

Inspired? Want to make your own art doll?

Artistic doll-making has enjoyed a kind of renaissance recently, as makers have been able to use modern materials and modern marketing tools to bring their creations to the public.

The most popular materials include polymer clay or paper clay over a metal armature (skeleton), as well as felt, plastic, porcelain and re-purposed dolls.

While a basic doll can be created very easily, a work of art will take time and hard-won skill.

The very best creations often take months to create and will have intricate details, including real hair, hand-sewn clothing and realistic accessories.
