The Art of Darkness

Mr. and Mrs. Dracula

Mr. and Mrs. Dracula

This is absolutely brilliant.

After I posted about vampyre rag dolls a couple of weeks ago, artist Bonni Reid dropped me a line to share one of her designs. Her Mr. and Mrs. Dracula is a topsy-turvy doll, complete with full-length cape and pretty gothic gown. There’s a closer look at their faces here; I just love their expressions.

I’ve run into topsy-turvy dolls of the asleep/awake and fairy-tale variety (which seem to be heavily concentrated toward Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, for some reason), but had never considered turning them to darker ends. These are immensely charming.

Thanks for sharing, Bonni!
