|Dead looking baby dolls|
(Scroll down for video) Every child’s dream at one point, is to have a collection of cute baby dolls to play with at home.
Now, a Washington baby doll artist is creating dead like baby dolls, which are selling for record high prices, according to press reports.
The eccentric artist is making a living from the dead by creating incredibly creepy zombie dolls, which are proving to be a hit worldwide.
From vampire-like teeth to pale skin and piercing red eyes, 32-year-old Bean Shanine, spends up to eight hours a day bringing life to her baby zombies.
Reborn dolls are often used by mothers who cannot have children, but Shanine insists that she gets good reviews almost across the board from people on the Internet who love her creations.
Her dolls have become so popular that Sharon Osbourne, wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, recently received such a doll and described it as "very, very well done, but slightly disturbing.”
The mother of four, who lives in Washington, made her first monster baby as a gift for a friend who participated in an annual zombie walk in Vancouver, Canada.
Soon, her new hobby turned into a business. The Twisted Bean Stalk Nursery is selling the spooky creations for as much as $1,500 to collectors in the United Kingdom, and worldwide.
She said: "Before I gave the first doll to my friend I put it on ebay as a test to see what would happen with a ridiculously high price to ensure that it would not sell. It turned it to be a huge hit. I keep selling out my inventory of dolls all the time.”
