Friday Favorite--loopyboopy

In the spirit of Halloween, which is quickly approaching, I'm taking you to loopyboopy, a shop full of interesting art dolls.  In the artist's own words, these dolls are "creepy, strange, odd, and gothic".  Yes, they are.  But I also think they have a very soulful beauty about them.  I think you will agree.

Colleen handsculpts these dolls from clay and then uses paints and pastels to add details.  She uses black glass for the eyes, which I think gives them that sad, soulful look.  The clothes are all handmade, and each doll truly is a one-of-a-kind creation. 

Here are a few of my favorites:

Loopy Gothic Art Doll Ooak  Florence
Loopy ooak Gothic Art Halloween decoration Doll Melissa RESERVED for R
Halloween Ghost Decor Ghost Girl Ornament Imelda
Gothic Ooak  Art Doll Halloween Decoration Josephine Weltey RESEVERED  for L
Colleen is obviously a great photographer as well, as her pictures are wonderful.  In fact, you can also purchase prints of these wonderfully creepy dolls.

I hope you find loopyboopy interesting, and you will follow the links to Colleen's etsy shop. 
Have a great weekend!  I'm off to the first craft show of the season.  Wish me luck!

    1. Thanks to everyone for stopping by to see Colleen's amazing dolls. I think I first discovered her work on the pages of Art Doll Quarterly magazine. I immediately looked up her etsy shop and added it to my favorites.

  4. Great feature of a well deserved artist.I love her dolls too! I've told many people about them. She has an amazing talent.
