Guide to Miniature Doll Coffins

Guide to Miniature Doll Coffins

It's Halloween week, so have a guide to one of the more morbid doll accessories out there: miniature coffins! I recently picked up a 1/12 one for the (forever ongoing) haunted house, and was interested to see what - if any - alternatives were out there.


Evangeline Ghastly

Evangeline Ghastly is the goth fashion doll, standing at just over 18" tall she is produced under the Wilde Imagination brand for Tonner Doll. She has been around since 2006 and has managed to accumulate a coffin carry case and her very own swank looking coffin, the latter forming part of the 2013 Wilde Halloween Convention exclusive set, The Other Side. You can check out the current Evangeline Ghastly range HERE.


Living Dead Dolls

Living Dead Dolls are a commerical line of 10" horror dolls which typically come packaged in coffin shaped boxes. Find out more about them at the official website and the LDD Wiki.

Various other dolls have also been given coffin boxes, ranging from the official Rob Zombie Voodoo Doll to the 16" Jun Planning Corpse Bride limited edition double pack.


Draculaura Coffin Bed

Mattel's Monster High range was really just bound to produce a coffin at some point, focusing as it does on the creepy and the kooky! This Jewelry Box Coffin playset for vampiric main character Draculaura was originally released in 2013. While it remains the only full sized coffin, the brand has produced various other coffin shaped accessories like the coffin shaped coffee table in the Coffee Bean Playset, mini coffin boxes (e.g. with Ghouls Rule Clawdeen), various lockers - including the mini musical type - and Draculaura's coffin locker come dressing room playset.

Also relevant are the little Freaky Candy Coffins which were available in 2013/14:

Monster High also produced a coffin shaped 1/6 scale doll house, though I couldn't find much information about it. (Teamson Kids did a knock-off version of it too.)

Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas is beloved of goths the world over, and is also a great source of miniature coffins. Many of the dolls came packaged in coffin boxes, generally simple cardboard but some of the limited edition versions are more elaborate.


Re-ment Pose Skeleton

Re-ment's 1/18 scale Pose Skeleton range is just the cutest. You can get tons of accessories for the skeletons and their pets too, like this coffin and Grim Reaper scythe.


Streets Ahead Coffin

Streets Ahead, one of the leading 1/12 scale miniature brands, produce mini coffins in light wood and mahogany that retail for about £10. If you go up a pay grade, Canadian based MiniLand also make some awesome 1/12 scale coffins:

Coffin for Wrestling Figures

Wrestling has always had a flair for the dramatic, and there are a number of coffin playsets on the market to better help you re-enact storylines or simply kill off your siblings' favourite figure. These are mostly for 8" figures, so c. 1/8 scale. Here's another example from Ringside Collectibles:

Another option when it comes to scratching your miniature coffin itch is to pick up a custom example. Dolls Delight on Etsy makes miniature coffin shaped beds and bookcases in various scales, for example, and JJs Woodcrafts makes coffins in different sizes for all kinds of craft purposes. You can also find cute vintage miniatures, like these plastic charms from Lulu's Cupcake Boutique:

If all else fails, you can always make your own doll coffin! Here are some great tutorials from Lola's Mini Homes, Raven's Blight, and Kraken Make Ruckus.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
