Meet the Seamstress

SeamstressThe new movie 9 (produced by Tim Burton, which should come as no surprise given that image there) involves a ragdoll who comes to life in a post-apocalyptic world where maniacal machines have killed off all of the humans. 9 finds a small community of others like him and tries to understand what’s happened to the world whilst avoiding the killer robots.

The Seamstress is one of the robots, and she’s pretty fantod-inducing.

[Director Shane Acker] was inspired by the mythological Medusa in his creation of this serpentine hunter. Fashioned with a doll’s head, grasping prehensile arms, an intricate thread-spool mechanism, and hypnotic eyes, the Seamstress lures her prey out of hiding and stuns them into submission before sewing them up within herself.

Dread Central has more information about the Seamstress (and the movie in general), and io9 has a clip of her in action.

I like her. She’s what I expect the Goddess of Gothic Crafts would look like.
