Welcome to the Inbetween
If you're not a fan of haunted dolls and the like, then look away now. Because if there was ever a likely candidate for a doll almost guaranteed to suffocate you whilst you sleep, then 'Little Apple' dolls are it. The striking resemblance of Little Apple dolls to the terrifying female Demons of Asian horror will not be lost upon fans of Japanese horror movie classics, such as 'The Ring.'
Dressed in a mix of traditional Japanese outfits blended with a modern Lolita twist, Little apple dolls are pale in complexion and are vague in facial detail. Created by artist 'Ufuoma Urie' each character comes with its own strange (and occasionally disturbing) back story, from the world of the inbetween, where Little Apple dolls with deathly white faces and black piercing eyes lurk waiting, for the chance to crossover and snatch easy prey.
Little Apple Dolls - The World of the Inbetween
Behind every door lies another door in the world of the inbetween, which Little Apple dolls call home. With souls faded from the land of the living these Gothic Lolita inspired effigy's dwell in lands removed from any map, and deep within the rabbit hole. Some eat candle-light and some hunt Demons, in a twisted realm not dis-similar from (but darker) than the Anime-inspired worlds of 'Miyazaki' animation.The Little Apple Dolls
Carrying small pin-spiked red apples the Little Apple dolls capture perfectly the terrifying visage of villains from Japenese horror, mixing the innocence of Kawaii with malice and grudge. Strangely disturbing to the eye, yet beautiful also, Little Apple dolls include such unusual characters as 'Animula', who dressed in bright red refused to part with her soul upon death, leaving her stranded in the world of the inbetween.
Currently into their fourth series other Little Apple doll characters include: 'Vates', 'Irae', 'Circe' and 'Mentis'. And each comes complete with its own multi-layered costume, apple and pin accessories (amongst others such as masks) and their own personal story in book-form.
But beware, for Little Apple dolls are unsound of mind, and dubious of nature. And should your new found friend from the world of the inbetween get a taste for your friendship, and a grip on your soul. It may never wish to let go again.
