This is Barth. He's the first of my new Goblin doll series. Each Goblin will be unique, no two will look the edition of one!

Barth's ears, face and claws are all made from cast plastic. Everything is hand sewn, hand painted...totally handmade. They are soft, plush floppy type armature yet but that might happen down the road. Faces will be from the same mold but customized to be unique. Some will have earrings, dreadlocks, manes, spikes, little strands of bones or twigs and each will have a name.

Barth spends most of his time sleeping and he enjoys mealworm flavored ice cream. If you are interested in hosting Barth as a permanent house guest, go here:

Goblin doll head sculpt

So im resurrecting my old monster dolls!

I used to make these dolls with plastic faces and stuffed plush bodies. I ended up getting really burned out on making them and abandoned them for awhile.

Im doing a whole new style for these and i think they are going to come out really cool. They will have dreadlocks/manes and creepy necklaces and decorations made from bones and weird stuff. I'm going to go pretty high end with these, they will not be cheap. They will probably be produced very occasionally.

This head sculpt will be rotocast in plastic. Those two dark shapes are his long ears which will also be cast in plastic. You can kind of see his front claw sculpts in the background.
