You’ll just eat yourself away in your tortured shell

This is Vim the ghost monster! She likes to hang out in graveyards or creepy abandoned hospitals, doing standard ghost stuff- haunting, popping out of the ground to surprise people, popping out of trees to surprise people, rattling chains when she wants to be old school. Vim’s favorite thing in the WORLD is when ghost investigators show up with a camera crew. She loves to throw rocks to make noises, shouts into their voice recording equipment- words like “fart bubble!” or “chocolate pudding!” which the investigators interpret into more scary sounding language. She will also throw dust into the air in front of cameras to make the “orbs” humans are always screaming about. Her favorite prank was the time she tripped the guy with the hair from Ghost Adventures , causing him to fall into a wall and push his through own cameraman to get away. Vim can’t eat food since she’s not a living thing but she loves the smell of incense and pine.
This is an original hand made doll. The face and claws are cast urethane with a faux fur body. Soft fleece ghostie legs, weighted at the tip to flop just right! Weighted in the butt to sit. Floppy style doll, no armature. Her cast head and claws GLOW purple in the dark! Put her in direct sunlight/ UV to charge the glow.
Sits at 10” tall.
As with all of my original dolls, this piece will come with a signed and dated etched wooden tag marking it as one of my one of a kind critters.
This is a piece of artwork intended for adult collectors. It can be played with and cuddled a little but please treat it with care to prevent scuffs. Clean any cast parts with a slightly damp cloth, do not use solvents. Fur can be combed and styled if desired.
