Creepy Photo Captures 116-Year-Old Doll Blinking - Despite Having No Eyelids
A pair of paranormal investigators reckon they've managed to capture the moment a creepy 116-year-old doll blinked - despite not having eyes or eyelids, or, more importantly, being alive.
Craig Jones, 28, and Matt Wood, 48, took a selfie with the 'haunted' doll and said they were shocked after looking at the photo and seeing that it appeared to have her eye closed and even some eye make-up on - probably wanting to look her best for the snap.
The paranormal investigators were inside an abandoned building in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, which has earned itself the rather lovely nickname 'The Village of the Damned'.
They brought the doll, named Janet, along with them - as you would, I guess.
Craig, a boarding support worker, said: "I love haunted objects and actually being on an investigation with a haunted doll is amazing, which is what made me want to get a picture with her.
"We took a picture with Janet, and as I looked at the picture it looked like her eyes were closed.
"But then I remembered that she doesn't have any eyes or eyelids and just has empty sockets, so I turned my torch on to check, as it was dark and I saw that's she doesn't.
"We were confused and took more photos to try to recreate it, but couldn't. Then other people then tried but also couldn't recreate it either.
"We showed a lot of other people at the event and everyone said that it's 'crazy' and 'very creepy'.
"People also said that it definitely looks like her eyes are closed and it looks like she has eye lashes and make-up on."
Creepy Janet ended up in the hands of paranormal investigator Miki York after a woman called Julie contacted him on Twitter begging him to take the doll off her.

Julie said the doll was given to her grandmother by her grandmother all the way back in 1903 and said it been haunting the family ever since.
She even claimed people would often feel sick or get headaches when they were near the doll.
Miki said: "All of Julie's family hated the doll and hated coming round to her house when the doll was on show.
"It ended up being put and locked away in the loft. She reportedly heard footsteps coming from the loft
"When she arrived at my house, I did a spirit box session with her, just to see if I could get any information out of the supposedly haunted doll.
"When I asked for the doll's name, I got the name 'Janet' come through and so she became Janet.
"Many people feel sick or dizzy when around her and in her presence. Also being have said they get headaches when watching videos of Janet online.
"In my house, I've had voices and shadows downstairs and also my daughter's bedroom door opened on its while I was filming a video with Janet."
Craig and Matt run the YouTube series 'The Unknown', where they make videos about weird, supernatural goings on - and they claim to be unable to work out what caused Janet the doll to shut her eyes.
Craig added: "When we showed Miki the pictures he was surprised as he had never seen that before with her and it's a great photo.
"I think knowing that she is a haunted doll you are curious around and want to experience what she can do.
"But like anything paranormal you can't make it perform like a circus monkey as we are dealing with a human spirit here.
"It's about showing respect to her."
