Shepherd Book didn't really get decapitated in "Serenity," but I wanted to make a Decapitated Dollie of him anyway, to immortalize his "brains are in terrible danger" action hair. Mild mannered priest by day, wild man of Borneo by night. Sure, you can tie it back with a black ribbon (included), but it'll still be there. Waiting.

Shepherd Book is crocheted from a medium brown yarn, with gray yarn for his hair. Each strand of yarn his "brains are in terrible danger" action hair has been unraveled by hand to give him a fuller head of hair. He has dark brown eyes and a thin gray mustache. I include a length of black satiny ribbon if you prefer to tie his hair back, but his hair really doesn't like to stay back. The snow on the roof is too heavy.

Decapitated Dollies are small crocheted heads, disconnected from their bodies. Each Decapitated Dollie is made from 100% acrylic yarn, and stuffed with polyester fiberfill. They have an approximate circumference of 8 1\/2 inches (about 22 cm), a bit smaller than a tennis ball. Their facial features are stitched on, while their hair is not always fully connected to their head. Those with earrings or earring embellishments have been attached as securely as possible, but can still come out with rough handling. Decapitated Dollies are not recommended for small children or pets for this reason.

Each Decapitated Dollie comes with his or her very own "death certificate," which lists his or her name, date of death, and cause of death. The back of each "death certificate" is made of patterned cardstock--in the case of this set, the cardstock is brown with gold stars, skulls and crossbones, and hearts. The back of the "death certificate" will vary slightly from the one shown here.

If you have a name or a cause of decapitation that you'd like to see immortalized in a Decapitated Dollie, please feel free to contact me. I'm happy to offer custom Decapitated Dollies in whatever hair, skin, and eye color you prefer, with a variety of hairstyles, names, and causes of decapitation.
