Russian Artist Makes Dolls So Realistic They’ll Give You Nightmares

Glass eyes, period dresses, and wilting flowers.

There’s something about dolls that makes them creepy. Their blank stares, glass eyes, and motionless poses make them look like children stuck in time. But Russian artist Michael Zajkov’s dolls take creepy to the next level. Their lifelike faces and turn-of-the-century Russian dresses give them a ghostly appearance. Zajkov gained notoriety for his devilish dolls after he showed them at a doll expo in Paris in 2013. Take a look at our slideshow featuring some of his most sinister-looking creations and think about whether you’d want one on display in your room at night.
