I'll have to get some full size pics of these later, but I'm too excited to share them now. Here are my dolls I made from my own pattern. I have zombies with hand painted faces with acrylics on the left, and Frankenstein's brides on the right with embroidered faces. The zombies have felt hair and the brides have corduroy with rick rack. Thanks for looking!



Here are some details of a few painted faces:








Here is a closeup of one of the brides:

Thanks! I was having an insecure artist moment, and stared at them with blank faces for a week or two. It's a little unnerving to paint something you've already sewed and completed. There's not a huge margin for error, and I was worried I'd hate how they turned out. I was going to chicken out and do embroidery and buttons instead, but I"m so glad I got brave and painted them. I'm very happy with how they turned out.

Amazing dolls. The faces came out wonderfully winsome and zombieized. I like all the variations on the faces and the dolls. Are you planning a zombie/monster take over? Love 'em.

Your zombie gal's faces are works of art! I love the look of them. The brides are cute too! Their faces are stitched so sweetly! Great work!
