Randolph Carter Dream Dolls!

After weeks of behind-the-scenes work, I’m able to announce a fabulous new Lovecraftian (Kadathian?) toy… Randolph Carter (Dream-Form) Dolls!

These huggable soft dream dolls are based on Randolph Carter’s form within the Dreamlands as seen in my comic adaptation of Dream-Quest. Hand-crocheted and designed by French-Lebanese artist Katia Farage, each doll comes with a nightgown and sleeping cap sewn by my wife, Jumana Al Hashal.

There are only five handmade dolls, available to backers of the new “Cosmic Entity of the Freedom of Dreamless Sleep” level on Kickstarter. Put them on your pillow to guard your dreams! Take them to tea parties! Enjoy some Lord Dunsany together! Photoshop them into pictures illustrating scenes from “Dream-Quest”! The possibilities are endless!

Yes, this is a real thing! Thanks to my friend Katia and my wife Jay for their help and long hours of crocheting!

    My mom used to crochet oval toys using pantyhose L’Eggs plastic egg shapes, they come apart in the middle, so you might glue them shut to serve as forms. I think these looks great, so I’m not saying the eggs would be an improvement, just a thought.

    I’m not sure what Katia used for the shapes, but they turned out well. She is a graphic designer, but I first saw her doll work in some dolls she made for her son. They’re stuffed with some kind of soft squooshy batting.
