How to Make Hella Money if You are a Rather Unattractive Doll

How do you make money if you are a doll who would like to have some spending cash?

Simple: snag a part in a big budget horror or suspense film.

And then sell yourself on EBAY.

I can't honestly say I remember this doll in The Woman in Black, but I do remember the movie fairly well and thought it was pretty great as that genre goes.

Daniel Radcliffe makes everything great (especially Equus). :p

I loved the way the water would come in and surround Eel House. That was such a great metaphor for the subconscious and that visual effect was stellar.

You can see the watermark for the collectibles firm who is selling or brokering this sale.

They're asking $8,000 (U.S.) for the doll and there are fourteen watchers right now

Oh, here's why I don't remember this doll. I just learned this minute that it was in the sequel to The Woman in Black, which I did not see yet.

In the photo above, I think he (or she?) looks like a distant English cousin of homicidal Chucky from the Child's Play movies.

Here are some photos of it in the movie, in which it appears to feature rather prominently. Because there were shots featuring the doll in the listing that were clearly excerpted from several other scenes, as well.

It's known as the "Creepy Sailor Doll."

There's more info in the copy from the listing.

This very doll was the only one made and used in the production of Tom Harper's Horror-drama,
"The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death". This sequel is one of the most creepy haunted time period movies ever, that takes place forty years before the original haunting at Eel house.

A group of children are evacuated from World War ll London and ultimately awaken the house's dark, ghostly inhabitant. 

This doll was featured and carried through out most of the film by Edward (Oaklee Pendergast) after he discovers it in Eel house nursery. The doll is dressed in a navy sailor's uniform with a white collar and cap. The hands and feet appear to be stuffed inside brown leather gloves and boots. The doll's face, arms and calves appear to be made out of porcelain and the body form in sort of a sand bag. The face was deliberately distressed for the production use to make the doll vintage in age. It remains in excellent production-used condition and measures approximately 13.5" x 5.5" x 2.5" (34cm x 14cm x 6cm)

This prop is an original asset used in production of the 2015 film 

The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. The asset was made available through a partnership between Propstore of London and Exclusive Media and will come with an official  coa from Propstore of London.

This is NOT a replica, but an original one of a kind piece that has been 100% screen matched from many close up screen shots.

Will entertain serious offers or trades.
