Vampire Paper Dolls

Most of you probably aren’t paper doll fans (it’s one of my personal vices) but I found a set that some of you might find cool; a vampire set.

The set includes both a male and female doll (the female is Lilith from Jewish biblical tradition, and the male is Cain, also from the bible), and outfits to turn them into a variety of vampire legends from both myth and the big screen. Costumes include: Elizabeth Bathory (The Blood Countess, Hungarian), Vlad Tepes (Prince of wallachia), Sekhmet (a warrior goddess from Egypt), Lamia (of Greek mythology), Kali (Hindu Goddess), Camaztoz (Mayan God), Vampire Cat of Nebeshima (Japense Legend), Chiang shi (Chinese “hopping corpse”), Queen Akasha (Queen of the Damned), Baobhan Sith (Scottish fairy vampire), Lord Ruthven (from The Vampyre by John Polidori), Sir Fraces Varney (from Varney the Vampire by James Malcolm Rymer), Carmilla (from Carmilla by Joseph Le Fanu), The skleton Count & the Vampire Mistress (from the novel of the same name by Elizabeth Caroline Grey), Count Orlok (from the movie Nosferatu), Bela Lugosi as Dracula,  Dracula’s Daughter (from the 1936 film of the same name), Vampira, Christopher lee as Dracula (from the 1958 film), Blacula (from the 1972 movie of the same name), Barnabus Collins (from the 60’s TV show Dark Shadows), Gary Oldman as Dracula (from the 1992 film), Lestat de Lioncourt (from Interview with the Vampire), Angel, Buffy & Spike (All from Buffy tv series), Edward Cullen (from Twilight) and Bill Compton (from True Blood).

(You’ll notice Jorick is missing 😉 )

Of course, I had to get my own set. I can’t include pretty, clean scans because that’s the same as giving them away, but I am including some photos of my favorite plates.

pretty cool, huh? I’d have liked to see something from the Anita Blake series, perhaps in place of three Buffy Characters, and also the vampire from Moonlight would have been a nice addition. I did like the ancient legend vampires, though, so I’m happy with set.

I intend to leave mine in the book,  though I did get my mother a set which we’re slowly cutting out. I will say that the “heads” don’t stay on the dolls very well, so it’s not a practical set for “playing”.

If you want your own set, they are Available on dover.com for basically $10 plus s&H.

    • I still have a big box of them *blushes*

      There are a lot of really interesting ones out there. I used to belong to a paper doll artist group and some of the dolls people made really surprised me.
