Legend Of Undead Ed There is a legend told of a doll-maker named "Undead Ed". It is said that he is responsible for bringing dead children back to life, though not in any means or reason that you might think. Ed has a way of conjuring the lost souls of children who died in some horrific manner and then places their souls into dolls so that they make seek revenge on the living. It all started years ago. They say that Ed used to be a renowned pediatric doctor that worked for a children's hospital. That is, until a terrible tragedy occurred late one autumn night. The children's ward had been set ablaze and that the children were all locked in their rooms with no means of escape. It wasn't until after the investigators looked further that they uncovered the grisly truths. It seems that the remains of the children proved that they had been killed just prior to the inferno. Their bodies had been mangled and dismembered. Various parts of their anatomy had been scattered across the rooms. It was too much for anyone to bear witness to, especially Ed. The sight of the horrors made him snap and he was asked to take a vacation and try to recover from the trauma. He once believed himself to be their savior and now he was only their blind witness. He vowed to find a way to avenge their killers. Ed took absent from his practice and traveled the world in search of answers. He found fascination with a new hobby to keep his mind still. Ed began to collect dolls from all around the world. Not just any sort of dolls but rather ones that seemed tattered and worn. They somehow reminded him of the children he once cared for. He tried to fix them and mend them as best he could. He began thinking that the dolls once had someone who cared about them at some point when they were first created and that by fixing them they would be loved again. While in Haiti he spent a few months with a group of witch doctors and learning black magic. That is when he decided to delve into the occult and began searching for a way to bring the dead back to life. Upon returning home he locked himself away to begin reciting the dark incantations and mysterious spells that he learned. He became focused on conjuring the tortured children's spirits to him. That is most of the legend as far as most know it. But there is more to the story then most people care to know. Some even say that if you find one of these dolls and adopt them into your hearts then the curse will be lifted and the child's soul will finally be at peace. But that's just a legend...or is it?
I pretty much make pipes and other art related items not so much dolls anymore.
