The Headless Horseman

The Headless Horseman, inspired by the story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, is decked out for Halloween in his hessian gear.  These boots are made for stomping!  And his pumpkin is made for throwing or wearing as a substitute head.

His outfit was entirely needle felted in Norwegian wool.  Vince Dorse, who designed this doll (and my Invisible Man and Jekyll & Hyde), planned to have these three dolls exist as a set.  So they not only share a theme and literary origin, but all three dolls share a few, key colors (red, purple and black).  So, if you’re out riding through Sleepy Hollow tonight, beware.  You may just have a tiny, wool jack-o-lantern hurled at your head.  I’ll be posting the concept art soon so stay tuned for that.
