I happened to find this lovely doll in the attic of the house we were shooting in. She's very similar to a doll my grandmother gave me when I was little. I usually hated dolls, preferring stuffed animals, but I liked her because she wore a giant pink dress. This doll has a nice big purple dress. Purple is my favorite color.
A prop, artfully distressed, was used as a stand-in for the real skull. (Yes, there was a "real" skull. Read About the Film to find out the whole story.)
When you don't have time to put photos in albums, burn them. It's fun and easy.
The attic of the house we shot in was full of dolls. It had a good vibe.
