WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 300
Who knew I was going to be able to keep it up that long, not me. And who knew this existed?
An Edgar Allen Poe bobble head doll. About 10 or so years ago, I designed the costumes for play called Nevermore. Based on the thought of what happened to Mr. Poe leading up to the day he was found dying in a gutter. He was seen boarding a ship, then disappearing and turning up days later in Baltimore, only to die a couple of days later. It's still a mystery. The playwriter set the play as fantasy ala A Christmas Carole where Poe goes through a guided tour of his stories instead of his life. He interacts with The Telltale Heart, The Gold Bug ect. This is the only photo I have from the show.
Poe and Annabell Lee. What's funny is I was planning on having the bobble head featured today, then I watched a movie called Twixt by Francis Ford Coppala and the lead has dreams where he's lead on an adventure by Edgar Allen Poe. Hmm...………..
300? Where did the time go? xReplyDelete
Deep Envy on the Poe bobble head , just discovered a whole weird Poe section on Wish , not for the family but just for me.ReplyDelete
This bobble head would find a suitable perch on the magnificent "Annotated Tales of Edgar Allan Poe" which lives on the bottom shelf of my computer desk and keeps it stable. * Would not Johnny Depp be a casting coup for a new Poe bio?ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your 300th! Please keep the weird dolls coming!
