Arci Munoz explains fondness on over ‘gothic,’ ‘scary,’ ‘living dead’ dolls
If her personalities would be based on two opposing characters, it would have be a Disney princess and a scary Chucky doll.
“‘Hati ‘yung room ko, half goth, half Disney. Meron talagang living dolls tsaka si Chucky, alive nagsasalita,” she said in a recent exclusive interview with Inquirer.net during the look test for upcoming online series “John En Martian.”
For her lighter, colorful side, just like any normal girl, she likes the Disney princesses and is a certified anime geek. Just recently she flew to Hong Kong to check out a Sailor Moon attraction.
On another note, her fun full-of-life side has an equally scary counterpart in her love for gothic, living dead dolls.
Because of this, her family members particularly her mom does not want to enter her room. In fact, her collections are too many and too scary that her mom has them blessed every month in fear that they might come alive.
“From my door pa lang, puro dark na. Kaya nga alien talaga ko eh,” she added.
What’s more, she finds what scares most people amusing. Instead of feeling fear, she is actually fond of dolls so scary that she chooses those designed inside a casket for that complete horror feel.
“Kinakausap ko nga sila eh, katabi ko pa nga sila matulog eh. Nasa kabaong ‘yun, living dead dolls, ‘pag sinearch mo sila may death certificate ‘yun, paano sila namatay tapos nabuhay sila ulit, ‘yung box nila kabaong,” she said.
In fact, her room could pass for a horror movie set.
“Ako ‘yung type of girl na, di’ba ‘yung ibang girls ‘pag pumasok ka sa room nila ‘yung rack nila shoes and laman, ‘yung akin pagpasok na pagpasok mo andun nakahilera ‘yung mga kabaong,” she said.
She even had the infamous Anabelle doll but unfortunately it disappeared and she feels that most probably, it was her mom who might have thrown it away.
The Anabelle doll was known all over the world for being allegedly demonized. The original doll was owned by the Warren family and was kept locked in their house.
But no matter how scary her room is, her friends don’t exactly mind sleeping over.
She even acquaints her niece/nephew with her dolls and lets them play and talk with Chucky. “Start them young,” she joked. /muf
