I love Halloween so much! My little goth heart goes pitter-patter for the darker side of festivities. I have added multiple items to my shop to help celebrate this wonderful time of the year, including some seasonal handmade items for fall. Here are some of my favorites of my lovely creations.
These items are handmade by little ole me in the USA. These are hand-crafted items, there are no robots involved in making these. But possibly toddler involvement.
All of the items in sets are also available individually.
Here we have a lovely set of costumed paper dolls, perched on craft sticks or with paper stands.
Both the theater and the dolls have beautiful glitter highlights.
The first doll is a black and white Victorian lady in a costume with a ribbed bat cape and a layered skirt. She has a large bat brooch on her chest and tiny bats on her shoes. Her hat is a bat head.
The second doll is also black and white. Her fitted skirt has little bats on it. She has a fur cloak and hood with bat ears.
The theatre is a black and white graveyard scene which reminds me of Edward Gorey. It is from a circa 1828 printer’s book. There are weeping willows above, a fancy border around, and several tombstones at the bottom. This theatre can be played with the dolls in front or in back.
Vintagey Bat Ladies Paper Dolls with Gorey-esque Theater
I so love this graveyard theater that looks like an illustration from Edward Gorey. I have paired it with some paper dolls made with ladies dressed in bat costumes.
Vintage images are used to create postcards. The images come from advertising, posters, books, cards, and other ephemera. A vintage item is scanned to make this lovely. This is NOT a vintage postcard.
There are glitter highlights on the prints. Those glitter details aren’t applied with some wimpy glitter glue. Oh, no. That stuff is done old school, with a teeny weeny paint brush, patience and care, and glitter EVERYWHERE

This card is beyond adorable with dotted lines
An item or detail from the print is cut out and mounted on top of the card. Paper tole is an art hundreds of years old, which was popular during the Great Depression. Multiple copies of a print are layered and otherwise manipulated to create a 3D design.
