Primitive Ugly Evil Goth Raggedy Ann Killing Doll!
In case you missed out on the ones I had on eBay, here is another of the Raggedy Ann Killer Dolls. She is identical to one I sold recently.
I'm the original designer and creator of the Raggedy Ann Killer dolls and here's your chance to have one. This one has been 'Gothed'.
This is definitely my 'signature doll' and is one of the most popular ones I offer on eBay.
The Raggedy Ann lovers will hate me, and the message boards will be shredding me, again, but nevertheless, in spite of the sacrilege, here's the story behind the evil.....
....special thanks to all the Raggedy Ann lovers who have written and who totally see the HUMOR in this doll, and didn't have a melt-down......OVER A DOLL.
This isn't a story for the squeamish. If you love Raggedy Ann, you should avert your eyes from this story immediately.
There is no happy ending here.
I'll be the first to admit that I've never been a big fan of the Raggedy Ann dolls. She just didn't 'do it' for me. As a matter of fact, I didn't have a lot of dolls growing up. I liked Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, and things like that.
But don't get me wrong........I respect those who DO like Raggedy Ann. Some of my best friends had Raggedy Ann dolls when I was growing up. My cousins practically worshipped them.
And I even have doll-maker friends who MAKE Raggedy Ann dolls.
Personally, I liked dolls that were more 'realistic' looking....like a G.I.Joe or a Lisa Littlechap doll.
But I kept my opinions to myself whenever I'd see a friend or family member loving all over their Raggedy Ann dolls.
The other day, I was making a regular Goth doll and set her aside. I had several ideas for her and wanted to wait before adding the 'personality'. I thought nothing of it. I do this all the time.
But while working on my doll one night, my husband was looking at other dolls on eBay.....and he noted how many Primitive Raggedy Ann dolls there were. He remarked that they must really be popular. So, I decided to try my hand at making a few Primitive Raggedy Ann dolls.
I decided to make the doll smaller, to start.......to see how she would go over. She was made to stand about 13 inches tall, including her hair. So, just as I had done with the larger dolls, I finished my little Gaggedy Bland doll, as I had decided to name her, and I set her aside, planning to give her a personality later on.
Little did I know of the horrors that would soon take place.
Later that night, after drifting off to sleep, I heard a noise that woke me. I assumed my cats were playing again, or getting into something that was forbidden.
This happens almost nightly.
However, when I got up that next morning I was shocked at my discovery. Nothing had prepared me for what I was about to see.
My cats hadn't caused the disturbance that night, they had witnessed it.
A dreadful murder had taken place.
Hanging in the computer room, where I left her that night, was my new Goth doll..... and in her delicate right hand she was holding a a dead Gaggedy Bland doll from a noose in their hands!
OH MY GOD!
And that's not the worst of it!!
Jutting out of the body of that Gaggedy Bland doll was a small wooden black handled AXE!! And there was doll blood on the little apron. And her eyes were now little 'X's'..........she was DEAD.
That's when I decided that my murdered Gaggedy Bland should now be named Tragedy Ann.
I also knew that the Goth doll should be named InkuDeath. She wears clothes as dark and black as ink, but now that she was a murderer, I added the word death to her name.
The doll and the horrors of that night would be forever known as
InkuDeath And Tragedy Ann.
I mean, InkuDeath didn't even try to look innocent. She seemed rather proud of what she had done. I guess she certainly showed ME what she thought of Primitive Raggedy Ann. She seemed happy to be holding a murdered doll from her hand.
And as if it isn't bad enough to know that my little Primitive Tragedy Ann dolls were murdered, imagine the devastation Cecil and Simon endured as they watched the ghastly scene played out right in front of them.
Those poor boys.....they hid themselves and watched. When I found them, Cecil was still on the other side of his pet door and Simon was in a state of shock and horror.
They are both on Xanax now, and therapy begins next Tuesday.
So, I have no choice, I have to find a new home for this murdering Goth doll right now.
It seems that with my other Gothic dolls there could be that 'pack mentality' going on.
I mean, if it's just the one Goth doll here, nothing happens.....but when several 'murderous minds' get together, nothing but pure and evil HELL breaks loose.
I think my dolls are plotting to do away with all the 'mainstream-peach-people' dolls in my house.
InkuDeath. Can you think of a better name for this killer? She stands about 28 inches tall. She's wearing a beautiful spider web dress. The bodice is made from delicate spider web netting with red spiders peppered here and there. And her skirting is also made of spider web netting, except the skirt has silver webs. And underneath her skirt is generous black tulle, four layers, in fact.
A cross hangs from her neck.
She also wears a pair of Mary Jane Patent Leather shoes with black spiders on the bows. And if you'll notice, her 'nylons' match the lovely bodice of her dress and sleeves.
InkuDeath also wears a beautiful black flower on her silk-illusion netting sash around her waist.
InkuDeath's entire body is tea-stained Muslin fabric and her hair is made of black Alpaca roving. She also has thin dark eyebrows that accent her 'mean look'.
Also, InkuDeath wears black velvet fingerless gloves.
Her eyes are blue with half-closed eyelids, and her nose has been sculpted. She has an 'indifferent' expression upon her face..........her black potpourri flower mouth seems to have been frozen into the awful grimace she wore as she plunged her axe into the stuffed, innocent body of that defenseless Tragedy Ann doll.
....bless her little heart....
And that brings us to the Primitive Tragedy Ann herself........ She wears a red white and blue dress. It had been a brand new dress......and sadly, it's the last dress she'll ever wear.......
(shaking my head in disgust)
The deceased also wears white pantaloons. Her legs are made from red and white 'ticking' fabric. She stands (or should I say 'dangles') about 13 inches tall.
She's attached to a jute 'noose'.
She has red stiffened hair, a red triangle nose, and just before she was murdered she had small buttons for her eyes, but now they are little black 'X's'....the true sign of doll-death.......tsk!
And, last but not least, we have the little apron........the tell-tale area of the murder itself. It was white, but now has red 'doll blood' dripping down the front. There's also a wooden handled axe sticking out of the apron, planted deep into the gaping wound of her mid section. I left the axe in place, just to keep the stuffing from spilling out everywhere.....I'm sure you understand.
And Tragedy Ann isn't stuffed quite as firmly as InkuDeath because.......well... she's dead.
It would be so great if you could provide a home for InkuDeath and her dangling Tragedy Ann doll. I have to get her away from the other dolls, just in case she discovers that she doesn't like them. I can't allow for my dolls to get murdered, or my cats to be traumatized again.
And, as with all of my dolls, I suggest that you don't display them in your bedroom. There is nothing scarier than a doll in the bedroom.......at night......in the dark.... with an axe.
