I have never been one to play with dollhouses or dolls. I think that the last set of dolls I got when I was a kid didn’t survive for very long. There is, however, this certain dollhouse that I certainly would not mind having around. In a separate room that is always well lit.
I don’t know if you have heard of The Bloggess, who is known as Jenny Lawson in real life. She has been working on a dollhouse for the past 11 years. So what is special about that (aside from the fact that 11 years is a very long time for a dollhouse)?
Well, this is no ordinary dollhouse. Forget sugar and spice and everything nice. Forget pretty in pink. This is a haunted dollhouse, down to every single detail. More than being haunted, the dollhouse draws inspiration from various fantasy and horror books. If I didn’t get drawn in from the photo of the dollhouse from the outside, this little detail totally suckered me in, hook, line, and sinker.
A haunted dollhouse would certainly not be complete without dragons, would it?
Then there is the attic, which draws inspiration from Harry Potter, among many other things. You recognize Hedwig, of course, and whatever that thing in the mirror is, it sure is freaky.
There is even a witch cum herbologist, complete with a potion book.
And what haunted house would be complete without at least one hidden passage? It is amazing how The Bloggess incorporates these details!
It seems that The Bloggess likes her Edgar Allan Poe. Can you spot the references in the two photos that follow?
So are you impressed or what? If these photos are not enough to get you interested, then I don’t know what will. For more awe inspiring photos, visit Kirtsy.
