My mom brought me a voodoo doll from New Orleans. I'm not sure if it's just a souvenir or not, but the person who gave it to my mom said she got it from an authentic voodoo shop.
It has a spun yarn head, as well as a veil or long hair. It seems to have arms and legs, and it has a dress from multicolored string.
The story goes, if you put the hair of your victim on it, whatever you do to the doll will eventually happen to the victim either literally or symbolically. If you make good things happen to the doll, same thing.
Since I don't believe in hurting things, I won't be using it. I just like odd little things like this.
Anywho, my main question, is the doll authentic?
