Okay, before doing anything else I need to explain that this is a custom made prop replica that I "MADE" MYSELF. The doll I used to recreate the so called "Ice Truck Killer Doll" is the exact same model of doll as used in the series. It's a doll character named Alysa and it was released by Integrity Toys back in 2004 as part of their old playline collection sold through Kmart, Walmart and TRU stores. This doll is part of series commonly described as the "Studio IT" series and the original box also labels it with "Janay and friends" and "Fashion Fling" (to be honest there's just so many series and sub-series of dolls here so I suggest you just check the box for keywords if you want to go hunting for your own copy).
Now, in order to replicate the doll seen in the series I first had to strip it of all clothes and compare it to some reference shots from the TV series. The removal of the head was quite easy (you just jank it off) and though the legs were a bit tricky to separate from the hips my overall recommendation is just some good old fashioned violence - just bend it at the base until it snaps!
I used a simple household knife (for slicing and dicing) to achieve the clean cuts to the arms and legs. As for the neck this is probably the hardest part as this is much harder plastic than the rest (make a note that the doll in the show has had it's neck removed to make it look more "human" so to speak). In retrospect I would suggest sawing off the neck using a very fine hack saw or something like that.
Last but not least the red ribbon used for the final touches is something I picked up quite cheap from a local sewing store (bought around 2 meters which ended up being just enough) and cost me less than I would have paid for the cheap normal grocery store kind of ribbon.
This is a self produced prop replica so I guess the distributor of the finished product would be me but the original manufacturer of the doll I used to create this is Integrity Toys.
And as far as the OOP status goes that's mainly a detail I put in in reference to the original doll model. It came out in 2004 and so you will only find it second hand today.
And as far as the original mirror featured as a doll accessory on the show, that is definetly from a different source and does not come as an original accessory with this particular doll.
It can also be mentioned that the original "home sweet home" apron seen on the doll prior to it getting chopped up on the show is also NOT apart of the original product.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO CRAIG WHO HELPED ME TRACK DOWN THIS DOLL! :)
