Vampire Paper Dolls


My favorite paper doll artist, Tom Tierney, created these vampire paper dolls for Dover last year.

While you might cringe that it includes Edward and Bella, you'll enjoy that Elizabeth Bathory, Bela Lugosi, Maila Nurmi, and several Ricean vampires are included here. There are also a few Buffy characters as well.

What better way to spend a gloomy rainy Sunday afternoon than cutting out these vampire paper dolls and acting out a vampire melodrama?

5 Most Intriguing New Shoes from Pleaser

Pleaser's newest shoes sure make my basic black Payless flats look really boring.


I'm not badass enough to wear them, but I love the look of these platform sandals with buckles.


These adorable candycane Mary Janes could be incorporated into a gothic Lolita outfit, or a naughty goth nurse uniform.


The floral design isn't quite right, but you could work these gold Victorian boots into your steampunk outfit with a couple quick adjustments.


These red devil shoes could be worn year-round, not just at Halloweenn. However, they look a bit painful due to the tight heel and pointy toes.


This new pair of steampunk boots for men already has the gears on it. I thought the point of steampunk was adding gears to things yourself, but I do like the look off these boots.

Living Dead Dolls Series 22

Mezco's Living Dead Dolls Series 22 is inspired by zombies.


"Goria" wears a charming ruffly blue Southern Belle style gown and hat.


You really, really don't want to take her hat off though!

Her box says "This Southern Belle came Straight From Hell Dripping with Blood and All Sorts of Crud."


Ava is a little blonde girl dressed in a pink rain coat.

"Ava was dressed that day for an apocalyptic flood. When she stumbled upon zombies she found a rain of blood." (That poem doesn't work as well as the others, grumble.)


Menard's box reads "Trapped on an island, cursed with voodoo, the dead are among us and they want to eat you!"


Roxie's poem says "She awoke, Painful hunger on her mind, taste for brains of the living she must find." (Another not-so-great rhyme!)


Peggy Goo, the car hop waitress, is my favorite in the series. "Over to your car Peggy Goo will skate, serving her favorite dish, your brains on a plate."


You can buy all five Series 22 dolls in the same fell swoop, too.
