Interesting and sad.

I've seen those dolls before. They can be amazing. I would never have the patience to do something like that.

Can she make one that looks like an 18 year old girl?

Before the clown doll from "Poltergeist" goes to sleep he checks under the bed to make sure one of those dolls isn't under there.

Creepy, and it looks like they already know about ceiling cat.

Human babies are so damn ugly. The dolls look just like them.

Also, is that a chimpanzee baby in the pic?

eraser8: Human babies are so damn ugly. The dolls look just like them.

"The dolls she has made are a reflection of the different races, with Chinese, African-American, Hispanic, Caucasian, and a Hindu baby with a jewel in its forehead, bracelets on both arms and an anklet "which they believe will ward off the evil spirits," she said. The Hindu baby is named Aamani, which means "Spring Storm." Her collection even includes two monkey dolls that she made."

That's the foreign-babies-and-monkeys part of the story. I read it in a southern accent. I know she probably has an Italian accent, but the benadryl is kicking in and the southern accent was funnier.

Creepy. And some "great writing" there in that "story".

That's an ape, not a monkey.

Good fun to leave one of these in a car in a hot parking lot and film the people going nuts trying to help.

The Reborn hobby is huge and weird. For some reason, the "breathers" - dolls with their nostrils cut out and lined with fabric so you can see up their noses - wig me out.

Even as a doll collector myself, reborns strike me as a wee bit creepy. This being said, some of the horror-mod babies are kind of amazing.

At Active Surplus in Toronto they have a bin full of dismembered robot dolls they use in Life Sciences class to teach teenagers that babies will turn your life into a living hell. I was tempted to get one and see what sort of gruesome thing I could make out of it, but then I remembered I suffer from pediophobia so I started screaming instead.

One of the offshoots of empty nest syndrome. It is art to recreate the particular ugliness of babby, though I think she should go for almost lifelike and add a few superfluous features like additional eyes, tentacles, and other non-baby-like appendages.

And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.

I'm with you guys. I just don't see it. They stink and they spread diseases.
Caring for them should be left up to chics (who have 'em because they knocked theselves up in the first place), and old dudes (who might as well, because they can't get laid)
 
2012-07-12 07:15:45 AM
Let's see if I've got this straight:

If a woman makes fake babies it's cute and cuddly.

If a guy owns a Real Doll he's a sad git with serious problems.

Is that right...?

Me too. I simply don't get it.

Kittens? Yep.
Puppies? Yep.
Pretty much any other baby animal? Yep.

Human baby? Ugly, ick ... no I don't want to hold it.

My sister makes those dolls - her dolls look very realistic which adds to the creep factor.

When she showed me one of her dolls, I told her we should go to Wally World and walk around dangling the doll upside-down by one leg or maybe start yelling at the doll and shaking it.

/Good thing she reminded we're a CCW state
//I hate Wally World
///And these damned "reborn" dolls

Someone freaking out and calling the Police when seeing one of these dolls left in a car, cause they think it's a real baby in 3...2...1...
 
2012-07-12 08:01:36 AM
Attractive mother of one of my daughters friends does this.
They can sell for up to $300. But they take SOOOO much time to make.

She hand places every single human hair into the dolls head.
Mixed with horse hair which is less brittle.

/sorry, no pics. Don't know her THAT well.

She appears to be sitting on a couch with a bunch of dead babies. Nothing creepy or weird about that at all.

it's not you. 98% of babies are ugly as hell IMHO. they either look like a pot roast, a drunk shriveled old man or a disgruntled midget taxi driver.

i've seen a shiatload of babies in my long life. two of them were not lil monkeys - they were beautiful. but you're right, most of them are scary horrid things. everyone lies to the parents to make them feel better.

those dolls are a cry for help. people buy them on eBay for huge $. freaks.

To be truly realistic, they would need to be tasty to dingos.

Well no, they're both sad and creepy.

Human babies don't even start to look cute till about 6 months. Newborns look like alien larvae. These things, with their creepy, dead eyes.....*shudder*

I'd rather drape my house in thousands of rubber snakes than have one of these things inhabiting it. And that goes double for those disturbing peekaboo dolls that hide in the corner and move when you aren't looking. What is with people?
