WHO IS LILY? READ HER STORY HERE>
Historians have tracked Lily’s background to the early 1600s, unearthing reports of occult practices, pagan rituals, and warding rights imported from Europe by the Dutch Colonists of Lower Manhattan. Handmade figurines like Lily were left out to frighten off local spirits and new world ghosts, an archaic custom dating back to the Vikings and the Romans. The conquers of foreign lands brought with them a piece of their folklore as protection. The original Lily was delivered to a paranormal research group from its owner, who stated: “I found her outside my door one morning, with a note that said to not put her by mirrors or in the same room I sleep in. I gave her a flashlight so she could drain the batteries, but instead she made my lights flicker at night. My cat would not go near her, and my dog would just stare. At times I would be woken up from a dead sleep smelling burnt toast, or sometimes a sweet fruity smell. Her favorite color is red. That is all I know.”
Upon further research, the doll was crafted to mimic the infamous Elizabeth Bàthory de Eased, and in doing so, the tradition stated she contains part of the Countess’ menace. Báthory was a noblewoman condemned in the 1600s for killing over 650 people, and is referred to as the ‘Blood Countess’ and ‘Countess Dracula’.
Lily is a limited-edition doll reproduced alongside the original Lilly. She’s the best option to spice up the spirit of Halloween season in your home, and the perfect gift for any person or family, as she can both protect, and haunt! Bring Lily home and experience the supernatural first hand… If you dare!
