Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween
Dolls . . . they freak the shitzu out of me. And yes, I’m well aware that I’m suppose to be the lover of all things Halloween, but dammit, a chick’s got her limits! And personally, I don’t care if a person chooses to be this or this, because either way, I will do this and this. Nevertheless, I’ve often wondered what makes a person decide one way or another. That’s why I created the “Would You Rather”category of my blog, so I can explore the attraction of opposites: where one will choose to dress cute and adorable, another will choose to dress dark and disturbing. Here, I will choose a popular costume, and its counterpart, then give examples and DIY tips that are sure to inspire you.
But first . . . here’s a little bit of deliciousness that I stumbled upon:

So whether you’ve decided to be creepy or cute (personally, I think you can be both), I truly believe the key to creating a kick ass doll costume is all in the way you do your eyes. Wear what you will–style your hair or wig however–and do up your lips to suit you . . . but make sure your eyes are on point.
SHUT UP!! This scares the crackers outta me!
It really is all about getting that flawless-painted-on kinda look. Porcelain–plastic–artistry. Here’s one more tutorial for you:
