I'll try to come up with something.  I've got plenty of vengeful spite to get out of my system!  Angry  Plus some free time over break.  Roll Eyes

Incidentally, this'll be my first thing ever on Craftster after lurking for MONTHS.

My first worry doll ended up looking rather voodoo-ish.  Grin

I've been making vodou dolls for friends and family for a few years and am excited to show off a few I keep for my home. I try to make them in a the traditional way(which isn't really what we normally think of as "voodoo dolls", but as figures representing the loas for worship and idolatry) They typically have two sides, or faces, one for protection and one for disruption. I stuff them with a mixture of cloves, moss(I cheat and get the dried stuff from craft stores) and a dash of cornmeal or cornstarch. I paint the veves on them with a mixture of cornstarch and gesso because the powder alone doesn't stick. Lastly, I wrap them in red ribbon or twine to bind them to whatever it is I need and use white pins for good, black for evil. Usually,they live in an altar containing candy, rum, and whatever trinkets that particular loa is fond of. I'm obviously way deeper into this than is really necessary- but I think that the research and religion of it is as fun as the hoo-doo side we normally see. I'm kind of a dork that way, though.
This is the protective side. The black one is Linto- who is the child spirit of the Guede family. The photo is one of my son. The white doll represents Papa Legba, who is the guardian of the crossroads and messenger from spirit to human. All Loa must gain permission from him in order to manifest.

The flip side. You can see Lindo's veve really well in this photo. Don't these guys look pissed?
