Eclipse Voodoo Dolls Launches Online Voodoo Doll Shop

After a one month pre-launch campaign, Eclipse Voodoo Dolls officially launched and became open for orders on Monday, July 12, 2021!

After a lot of interest and many customers signing up for our pre-launch discounts, we decided to open our virtual doors to purchases. We launched with 50 total voodoo dolls in-stock of 5 different colors.

Our pre-launch campaign focused on spreading the word about our first line of voodoo dolls that we named “Chumby.” These voodoo dolls are the perfect combination of creepy and cute, making them accessible to both enthusiasts and casual voodoo doll fans.

In around a month, our Facebook page grew from 0 to over 2,000 followers. We wanted to say a big thank you to everybody who has engaged with our page, signed up for our pre-launch email list, and made purchases!

About the Chumby Voodoo Doll

Chumby the Voodoo Doll was actually made by accident - Blair sketched out a design and we did a quick prototype that turned out beautifully, as shown here:

As soon as we had this, we knew this was going to be the voodoo doll we launched our store with. We immediately began handcrafting 50 of them.

Our first couple of recreations came out a little wonky, so it took time for us to get the process down where it was repeatable enough to produce a high quality and attractive Chumby Voodoo Doll, but still unique enough to make them all have their own “character.”

Eventually, we got the process down and over the next 2 to 3 weeks created 50 of them by hand!

Our Chumby Voodoo Dolls come in 5 different color options. The collection includes:

Each Chumby Voodoo Doll has several cross-stitched “scars” and one of the eyes is made out of a wood or coconut button. The other eye is “missing” and in place of it is an X.

About Eclipse Voodoo Dolls

You can learn more about Eclipse Voodoo Dolls on our dedicated About Page, but we wanted to take a moment in this blog post to introduce ourselves!

We are a team of two, Blair and Jake. We came up with the idea for Eclipse Voodoo Dolls one night when talking about how much Blair loved making her own.

From there, we started jotting down ideas for different voodoo dolls we would make - we have a lot of different styles that will be coming in the future!

Blair is the primary creative designer for our dolls; she sketches out the designs and then creates the initial voodoo doll and from there, Jake helps refine the hand making process so that we can craft high quality dolls every single time. She’s our star seamstress!

Jake runs all social media, website, digital efforts, and customer service. With over 5 years in the digital space, he’s able to make sure our customers are served quickly and efficiently while maintaining the “homemade” nature of our voodoo doll shop.
