Back when I was working with director Karl Mueller to build the scarecrows of Mr. Jones, he talked about found-objects being incorporated into some of the designs. Like the Jones guy builds his totems with stuff he finds along the road, dumped in the woods, or thrown out in the trash. The request came in to build one with a doll's head.
As a guy who doesn't really do that sort of thing, I came up with the below design, and off it went to California for the shoot. I dug the concept and love how it came out, but was very relieved as Bean and I were in NY watching the premiere when it never showed up in the movie. Only after rewatching the film on dvd did I notice that her dress and head were removed and she became the scarecrow that Penny and Scott knock over during their first encounter with Mr. Jones.
I felt really bad when I bought the doll off of ebay and the kind lady selling her wrote me the nicest note "I just know she's going to be so happy in her new home!" Awful.
I'm a [doll] child murderer.
I'd like to leave this on someone's property and just drive away.
