The Playtime Curse (W.I.P.)

Throughout the years there has been tales of a cursed doll. This doll is said to protect its owner from their greatest fears. It’s almost like a dream-catcher, but much more efficient. No harm can come to this beloved toy’s playmate. As time goes by though…the child grows older and begins to neglect the doll, leaving it to gather dust. When this happens, the doll mysteriously disappears. Some have said that the doll will wait until they are sleeping and whisper, “Catch me if you can” in their ear. Then the doll runs off and the morbid game of tag begins. During this chase, the owner will find themselves face-to-face with their greatest fears, the very things the doll used to protect them from. Few have spoken of this. Few believe them. Yet, soon after the disappearance of the doll, the owner also disappears. All that is left is a mysterious new doll with a poem written on a little card. Sometimes there is blood, broken glass, or the room is completely torn apart. Every time there is a different doll, but the same poem…

“I can see your fear
I can see your pain
But don’t be sad
For a friend you will gain

Keep me close
Hold me tight
Play with me
I will keep you safe at night

But if you forget me
I will be very sad
And what happens to you
Will be very bad

The nightmares emerge
A soul will be taken
A face will change
Then a new friend shall awaken”

Artist's Description

During childhood we all had fears. Fear of monsters under the bed or in the closet, ghosts, the boogieman, or even those creepy glass-eye porcelain dolls. We all wanted something to keep us safe because our parents are no help when they’re asleep. Here is a story of a little guardian doll who protects its owner…but it also holds a deadly and horrifying curse.

NOTE: This work is still in progress.
