This is the actual doll.

The Okiku Doll (お菊人形) is named after it's owner and originates from Hokkaido, Japan, which can be found inside Mannenji Temple in Iwamizawa. When the doll first appeared, it had black cropped hair. People said that the hair on the doll grows (That's right! It grows!). According to some people, the hair is trimmed so that it won't be so long. The Okiku Doll's hair is said to be as long as 25 centimeters (10"). Unlike most tales of haunted dolls, this one possesses no violent history.
