It’s interesting how many people seem to love the Mother’s First Victim doll. I actually had to explain to my own mother that it had nothing to do with her (my mom really is the coolest mom in the world – and do not attempt to tell me your mom is better than mine because that is not possible, I’m afraid). I originally created the doll for a customer that wanted something vampiric and horrific. Well, I can’t think of anything more horrific, for a newly turned vampire, than to waken from their blood drunk and find they have feasted upon their own child.
- My name is Beth Robinson. I make Strange Dolls.
Each doll is entirely hand made using polymer clays, vintage fabrics, acrylic paint, and sometimes real human hair or teeth. Each piece is one of a kind. You can buy online at www.strangedolls.net
This blog is where I feature new work, gallery shows and press for my dolls, as well as interesting artists or odd things pertaining to dolls, in general.
