The Shelter for Misfit Doll and The Little Dead Gyrl
This is a wonderful site for creative, primitive, and remade dolls. It has been cached since 2004, and I've tried to conact The Little Dead Gyrl, who is the host, but the email bounced back. Anyone who loves dolls and a has a sense of humor needs to visit. She was also making and selling dolls, and recreating miniature scenes of Edward Gorey's books with Kelli miniature Barbie's. There were interesting links "linkies" that still work, and some great information on collaborative dolls and artists. The art paper dolls and trading cards were wonderfully clever, and there were lots of ideas for inspiration. I wish I could find her and communicate. Little Dead Gyrl, if you are out there, write a comment! Also, I love the new book with legitimate photos of collectible dolls called, Creepy-Assed Dolls!
