After watching the show “Haunted Collector” on the SiFi Channel, I thought it might be kinda cool to own an a haunted object; however, I needed a safe haunted item – something that won’t freak out the dog or mess with the lights at midnight. 

So I choose to make one and I chose as my haunted object a doll, and not just any ordinary doll, a three faced doll (creepy factor x 3).  I also wanted this doll to seem to affect electricity and have a head that turns on it’s own.

To make all of this happen, a microcontroller would be needed to control a DC motor for the head swivel and it will also control a lamp that will be mounted on to the dolls base to make it seem as though there is erratic electrical behavior.

Step 1: The Doll Head

I needed to find an affordable doll, nothing valuable on the collectables market and most importantly…creepy.

I found a 3 faced bisque baby doll (head only) for a few dollars and needed to apply a scary faux finish to give the doll an aged appearance.

Chalk Pastels (several different shades of brown, blue, white)

This is truly terrifying, GREAT WORK! <br /> <br />Audrey
Thanks. Your kind words mean a lot.
SWEET! The main picture is super creepy! Very good job on the idea and communicating it. Wish you had done this before I made my doll. This woulda been a great reference
Thanks for the comment. The doll was my first 'ibble and the secret to creepy photo....use a bad camera. Checked out your doll and I love it...I should have check yours out first....amazing job (I'll make it a favorite).
Thanks :) Great minds :p
Thanks, it was a fun project. Now I have to live with it in my basement workshop.
Good God the bisque head alone is terrifying (along with all the programming code)! <br> <br>Great job on the detailed write-up and video...VOTED! <br> <br>I would not be able to sleep with that one in the house (too many memories of the Talky Tina Twilight Zone episode I saw when it aired in 1963 and I was 4)
Thanks, it was a long, long but fun project. <br>For me the creepy doll movie would be either be the puppet from Magic or the clown doll in Poltergeist (clowns are wrong).
