‘Doll in the Hall’ is the Creepy Halloween Version of ‘Elf on the Shelf’
It won't be long before your feed will be filled with photos of your friend's kids Elf on the Shelf. Sad, but true.
Not all parents are into that sort of thing, myself included, so a Halloween loving Mom decided to create the Halloween version of this and I'm creeped out and impressed all at the same time.
Natasha Hudarovich was inspired by her daughter's porcelain doll collection. But her daughter doesn't collect them for the same reason that most people collect them.
She calls them 'creepy dolls' and I couldn't agree with her more. My husband's grandmother collects them. Her house is full of them and it totally creeps me out.
One particular doll creeped her daughter out so bad that she was looking to get rid of it. Because her daughter is a bit of a prankster, Hudarovich saw an opportunity to get a little payback.
That's where the idea for Doll in the Hall was born!
Hudarovich documented it all on Facebook. Explaining:
Instead of an Elf on the Shelf in December, I’m doing a Doll in the Hall in October. Basically you take a creepy Annabelle porcelain doll that your kids already believe is haunted and keep secretly moving it around the house. For an extra festive touch I put the doll right in bed with one of the kids whenever they throw it in the trash. It’s day 3 and they want to move."
She got such an overwhelming response that she decided to chronicle the doll's escapades with its own Facebook page.
As much as I love this idea, the fact these dolls creep me out so I could never bring myself to do it.
