Getting Committed at the Doll Asylum

Portland has plenty of creepy things in it, but the Doll Asylum is up there with the best of them. It’s normally a private collection, but around Halloween they run a few open house events to let us into the macabre world of dolls experiencing problems of their own. It is, of course, totally awesome and I encourage anyone in town to take the opportunity to check it out. It’s free and the family and friends that volunteer to run it are great. You can find all the info you need on their site.

I captured a slew of great photos, of which I’ll share a few choice ones. The rest of the exhibits you’ll want to see for yourself as the ambience is part of the experience.

It seemed only right to give them a copy of Midnight’s Masque to be part of their show. They loved it and put it straight in the living room amongst the main gathering of dolls and visitors. Such great people!
