Hey there Anon, and anyone else with questions, here’s the answer to the one you asked and one you didn’t:
I didn’t buy anything special or spend any money on it - this is just shit from our house that I repurposed. I used a pair of old jeans for the VooDoo doll’s jeans, wool roving, food coloring and lemon juice for the hair, a dust rag for the body and head, stuffing from an old pillow and a pair of buttons that we had tucked away in a drawer. One of my favorite parts is that the buttons, close-up, say ‘Reaction’ on them. I have never actually sewn anything professionally before in my life, so forgive my terrible stitch-work. It just makes it more authentically awful, right?
