Haunted dollhouse…an update. Part 1.

I’ve been working on building a haunted dollhouse for like 14 years.  The dollhouse itself took more than a year and I’ve been adding furniture and such ever since.  It’s an homage to all the horror and fantasy books and movies that I’ve loved and at this point I’ve lost track of all the allusions, but I was thinking that since it’s almost Halloween I’d show you a few shot of the house this week:  All I have is my phone so the photos are a bit shitty.  Sorry.

Today, the bottom floor.

Click to enlarge.

Want to help?  Tell me your favorite horror/fantasy book or movie.  I need inspiration.

More to come.  Hopefully I can find my real camera so the shots aren’t so crappy.

My haunted dollhouse. The lowest floor.

    (Thanks! It’s taken forever. For the fairy skeleton I bought a teensy tiny skeleton from a railroad miniature store, printed out tiny butterfly wings to glue to its back, made a tiny frame and printed out “Faerie Skeletonis” and “Died of disbelief” (ala Peter Pan) and then burned the edges of the paper and glue them onto the frame. ~ Jenny)

  34. I’m really not into horror, but my favorite fantasy is probably either Eddings’ “Belgariad” series or McCaffrey’s “Dragonriders of Pern”. As for sci-fi…that’s harder, but I’m very fond of Asimov’s “Foundation” series and Heinlein’s “Future History”. I don’t know if you’re into graphic novels, but if you are—I LOVE the Constantine “Hellblazer” books (the Vertigo originals, not after DC got ahold of him and softened the character for their audience, basically ruining him), Darkhorse’s “Hellboy” series, and Vertigo’s “Preacher” series. The originals are FAR superior to any films or TV you may have seen, excepting the first “Hellboy” movie, which was a masterpiece. The second one sucked, which is probably why there wasn’t a third.

  131. Amazing!!!! Was the actual dollhouse a kit or did you buy it made? If it was a kit, how hard was it to do? I’ve always wanted to make ine. Yours is amazunh!

    (It was a kit. Apple Blossom. But I just used it for the bones and custom made a lot of changes so it would look better. It was incredibly hard but I’m not great at building so I think someone who was could do it in a week. Plus the instructions were missing. It took me about 6 months of work just to get the house built and I still see all of the imperfections. If I do it again I think I’d buy it already made. ~ Jenny)

    This is awesome !!! How did you make that/ start? Looking to start a doll house due to my love of tiny items

    (I started by building the dollhouse based off of an old Apple Blossom kit. I bought and made new windows and doors, etc. so it would look more realistic and then I shingled it and painted it and added stonework and hot glued babies breath to the outside to look like vines. Then I repainted with a dark antique wash and sanded it all down to make it look old. I also wired it for electricity but it was super hard and in the end I ended up not hooking it up to electricity because I kept getting shorts. A much easier start would be to build or buy a room box – a glass covered wooden box – and just furnish one room at a time to make sure it’s something you’re into. ~ Jenny)

  133. Holy Hell, that’s fucking awesome. I love horror movies, I love horror novels. I love ghost stories and I love doll houses. That’s just fucking terrific.

    Favorite horror movie? The Conjuring. and my favorite story ( true. and it seems heartless to say it is my favorite, but it’s the one that legitimately scares the living shit out of me.) is one about some killers that snuck into a family’s home while they were out and then waited in the attic for them to come home and go to sleep and then hacked them all to death.

    Jenny it’s a good damn thing you live far away and are not a big ole extrovert because my husband already sleeps with one eye open when he sees that I have on the Kindle. If you and I were friends I think he would probably leave for his own well being, mental and physical.

    Also, have you ever seen a mini Iron Maiden? That may be cool. And I HAVE actually seen a Mini Electric Chair for sale for a dollhouse. I thought, why the fuck…and now I know exactly why the fuck.

    Whoa Nellie

    When we were kids, my sister had a book of short stories, illustrated by Edward Gorey. (She actually still has the book.) One of the stories was about a haunted dollhouse, which reenacted a series of events that had happened in the (real) manor house years earlier (if I remember, the grandfather of the family was murdered in his bed by his kids to get their inheritance, and then the funeral played out, and then something came up from the basement (maybe out of the coffin?) and grabbed the little grandkids and took them away).

    God, that was an awesome story. I have to go find the name.

    …Came back to say, I FOUND IT! Or at least the book. It’s Hauntings: Tales of the Supernatural by Henry Mazzeo (Editor), Edward Gorey (Illustrator).

  242. There is an utterly disturbing (on several levels) book called “All that lives” written by Melissa Sanders-Self. It’s about the Bell Witch. I highly suggest it. I reread it every couple years. Also, while I’m not really into religious literature (I’m not overly religious in general), The Oath by Frank E Peretti is fantastic. Not sure you can incorporate anything from either book into your amazing Doll House, but they’re both fun, spooky reads! 🙂

    (I made her from a kit about 10 years ago because I couldn’t find a doll that I liked. The hands, feet and face were already sculpted and painted so I just made the body, the clothes and wigged her. Used a tiny piece of black panty hose for her veil. ~ Jenny)

The first in the series is “The Screaming Staircase.” I recommend them to any grown ups or kids who love great horror.

  291. I love this so much!! When I was a child growing up, from about age 2 and on, my dad build a Christmas mantlepiece scene of an 1800’s English village done in HO railroad scale. Every year, he would add to it and change it…it was incredibly detailed like this. On the left side was a church with a wedding happening, in the middle was a tavern with tiny mugs of beer. There was a pond for the ice skaters in the middle, horse drawn carriages took people home to the various houses – deer ran in the back forest. It was absolutely gorgeous and my sister and I were so excited to know that one day, it would go to her so we could continue to add to it and treasure it for years to come.

    Unfortunately, she and my dad had a falling out and unbeknownst to her, he wrote her out of his will. I had been out of my dad’s life for years, but it was a huge shock for my sister when dad passed away quite suddenly and she found out that she would not be getting this Christmas piece after all. It went to his wife, who had no real appreciation for it and who probably sold it or threw it out, out of pure spite (just as she kept jewelry that had been promised to my sister as well). My sister was heartbroken as you can imagine but there was nothing to be done. Dad’s will was valid and there was no way she could challenge it…the only thing that would have happened is she would have lost a ton of money in legal fees.

    Treasure this beautiful piece of work Jenny and make sure it goes to your sweet daughter without any problems, no matter what happens in your lives in the future. My sister would have been happy without anything else at all, if she’s only been given this one childhood treasure. oxoxox

    Hello: you have built a most beautiful dollshouse. Have you written a narrative to go with it? A story of people who live/lived in the house which either explains or links the rooms and items?

    I am trying to track down a tv episode from some old show in which a man buys a haunted dollshouse from a dealer. At night it comes alive – and the dolls play out the same scene of gruesome murder and sadness. Does anyone have a clue what his might be?

    Anyway, I’m in awe of your skill and dedication in making such a wonderful creation.
