My name is Christie and I am a full time horror artist and single mom living
How did I find Etsy?
Well..... I started selling in the Fall of 2006 under the name Bastet2329. I tried selling my dolls but there was no place for art dolls at the time so I joined in the fight to get a Doll Category made. It was a very frustrating time for me, and others, and in the end, I closed my account. Sometime after that, a doll category was made so I rejoined Etsy with my Creepydolls account. Even though I look new to Etsy, I am NOT! I have been around for awhile and have some knowledge under my belt :)
Personally, I am just me! Blood and Bubblegum. I am almost always wearing a black dress. I am a plus size gal so finding cute clothes can be hard but I LOVE vintage clothes and when I can get my paws on something in my size, I am sooooo happy! I always wear my vintage cat eye glasses and I have a bunch of tattoos. People think I am weird or different but once they get to know me, they see past my looks and accept me for the person I am :)
Artistically- I make scary dolls so I have to balance it out with fun paintings and collages. Can't be darkness always!
Creating dolls- I began making dolls in 2002 with my former husband- we needed money to fund our honeymoon to
What draws me to the macabre and inspires me?
I LOVE horror movies and I love dolls. It is such a wonderful thing to be a 30 year old who plays with dolls. Never in a million years would I have guessed that this would be my career but it has given me such great opportunities! I am inspired by sad things, death, dolls, horror, suffering, and pain. Those are all things we feel everyday and I express those through my art.
I do not own a single doll that I have made. I have had many favorites over the years but after making hundreds of dolls a few do stand out.
My dolls sell well around Halloween and at Christmas. Those are my busiest times of the year.
I make a lot of nun dolls and almost always, I get crazy religious emails. Those are great, I never respond to them because people who write you a novel about how you are going to Hell really are not interested in what you have to say!
