Creepy Doll #31 Needs a Home

AUCTION NOW LIVE

The Creepy Doll is back! Again! The bad news is: this means that the Desert Bus auction winner of Creepy Doll #31 has mysteriously backed out of the bid, making Tally’s craftsy bunny ears droop with sadness. The GOOD news is: this gives all of you one last chance to own the last of this limited run of terrifyingly adorable dolls.

This is your official stand-up-and-take-notice warning that we will be silent auctioning Creepy Doll #31 next week. Starting at 12am on Monday, Dec. 20 and going until midnight on Thursday, Dec. 23, the Creepy Doll will be up for auction online, with proceeds being donated to Child’s Play (naturally). Watch this blog and the Desert Bus and LoadingReadyRun twitter accounts for further details as to where the bidding will take place.

Keep in mind, this is a very special Creepy Doll. Not only is he the 31st of only 30 numbered dolls, he also comes with all the festive paraphernalia he’s stolen from the other holidays. His hands even have velcro sewn on so he can hold these items. The winner of this auction will receive:

- the 31st Creepy Doll (numbered on the bottom)
- his scythe
- a Valentine’s Day box of chocolates*
- a St. Patrick’s Day 4-leaf clover
- a Thanksgiving drumstick*
- a Christmas Santa hat
- a Halloween pumpkin
- and a special Creepy Doll coffee cup sleeve, so he can stare accusingly as you drink your morning coffee or tea. Do you really need that much honey?

Bonus: Because this is a very special auction, and because she’s been at her incessant crafting again, Tally is going to sweeten the pig… with a pig! Should the bidding for the doll reach $1000, the winner will also receive his or her choice of one of the three plush pigs pictured below, also crafted by Tally, in post-event honour of Desert Bus.

So your instructions are: Read blog, bid on doll, get pig.

  1. It’s ALL RIGHT, Tally, you can STOP now. ;D

    An impressive work ethic. I suspect I won’t be online often enough next week to get #31 and his pig, but I HAVE just inherited £ZOMG, so we shall see…

  2. You may recall I was keen to obtain this doll, but couldn’t be in the chat at the time.

    So their loss is my gain. Get ready for ultra-bidding.

  5. Creepy. VERY creepy. The auction begins on the 20th & that night is a total eclipse of the moon. CREEPY DOLL #31 WILL BLOCK OUT THE MOOOOON!!! Hide your children, lock your doors & drink your liquor; this is an actual celestial event & cannot possibly be a coincidence.

    BEWARE. Wikipedia knows:

  6. Next year for all those who back out I will personally escort sick children to their house to kick their asses. Poetic and plausible. Well, plausible for me because I’m insane.

  8. Of course it’s going to happen while I’m away from the internet. :(
    Of course, if the bidding is anything like last time I wouldn’t be even remotely competitive anyway…
    Enjoy the auction guys!

    And pay up this time!

  9. Wow, what a scumbag. I hope you have the name/information of the person who backed out so they can be blacklisted from anything LRR related infinitely into the future.

  10. Really? I don’t understand what would make people bid on something and then just back out like this… You obviously know how much money you have, so why would you bid outside your means, just to upset a whole community of dedicated people trying to help the children. Warrrrrgarbbbbllll to them, I hope that’s all they hear in their head for a long time, over and over and over. Personally, I can’t wait for next year’s logo so I can start crafting a stained glass window of it for the auctions.

  11. So, I can get pig? Still don’t play Minecraft or watch Topgear, though…

  12. The guy may have an excuse, I know that unexpected things happen. Like I was in a car accident last week that cost me a fair chunk of change. I’m still getting my auction item but it’s possible there’s an excuse.

  13. what do the asteriks after chocolates and drumstick mean?

    Comment by Storne — December 19, 2010 @ 2:28 am

  14. The asterisks were leftover from the original item description on desertbus.org, where they linked to supposed to a note indicating that these are not real or consumable food items.

  15. I just know I wont be able to win it as in england I will probably not be awake for the auction but If I am I might be able to donate but if I cant hope it all goes well.

  16. The auction is running for several days, so everyone everywhere, no matter their work or other schedules, should have plenty of opportunity to bid.

    Comment by Tally — December 19, 2010 @ 3:00 pm

  17. Yo dawg, we herd you got pig, so we got you a pig to sweeten the pig with, so you can get pig while you got pig.

    Comment by Glutnix — December 19, 2010 @ 3:12 pm

  18. Bah, can’t believe people just back out on their bids… I totally wish I had a thousand dollars kickin’ around, because the creepy doll is awesome but so is that blue pig. :D
