Since the dolls thread came up, I thought I would post this here.

I made her in tribute to Anabelle, the real Annabelle that is.

Thank you!

It took me a good while since I don't have a lot of time really.

I did it kind of piece by piece. The clothes and body were not too bad, but the hair took forever! I quickly realized doing strand by strand would be ridiculous, so I did it by making strips like hair extensions and then sewing them on by hand. Even still it took too long lol.

I am very pleased with the results though!

That’s awesome! I always thought the real one was way more creepy than the movie version. Something about that innocent Raggedy-Anne look that gives me the creeps.

I agree Duchess! I don't know why they did that to her in that cappy movie!
Have you seen the new one though? It is better, and they pay some homage to the original.

I admit I haven’t seen any of them. I’m not a big horror movie fan, but I’ve read about the doll’s history.

Forgive my ignorance, but who is "the real Annabelle" and what movie are y'all referring to? (I'm not a horror movie person either, though my idea of "horror" is the slasher/serial killer type gory shit, not thrillers or supernatural stuff (that's not gory))

They couldn't get permission to use Raggedy Ann, lol.

Ahhh, that explains it. Still, I think it would have been creepier if she was cuter!

This is the 'real' Annabelle; who still resides at the Warren's occult museum.

The supernatural thrillers are my favorite.

The movie version of 'Annabelle' started with the first 'The Conjuring' movie. It was pretty good.

That was based on another Ed and Lorrain Warren case, and it seems they just kind of threw Annabelle in there lol.

After that, they made the 'Annabelle' movie, which was terrible and had none of the 'actual' story in it as far as I can tell.

Now there is 'Annabelle: Creation' in which they pay a tiny bit of homage to the original story.

I’m curious what everyone else thinks of the Warrens. From what I can tell, they came at everything from a staunch Christian point of view, and labeled everything “dangerous and possessed”. But maybe I’m wrong?

I would say that is pretty spot on. They were 'demonolgists' supposedly, so definitely approached things from a xtian perspective. A good amount of embellishment to their stories as well very likely.

They are definitely Christian I have seen them on Paranormal State. They were involved in the Amityville farce. Not sure if how legit they are or are not. The actors who do them in the movies are spot on.
