OMG I am not even kidding you right now

Oh Lord help me! Some people are so insane!

Okay I get that Reborns are creepy to people but I posted the picture of a doll for sale on the FaceBook Yard Sale Group, and people are saying that this doll is made from a still-born that was taxidermied. OMFG. Really?

And the guy is like arguing with me that truly that’s what this is. And people are getting upset on there. WOW!! I think I am going to stick to etsy even though they arent selling on there but sheesh this is insane

That’s really a shame. When people make off comments after seeing my sleeping babies, I just tell them to remember it is an artform, just as porcelain dolls, or rag dolls or toy dolls are. There is nothing creepy about those, and these are simply a different method of producing an heirloom doll. Porcelain dolls have hair, and are often extremely detailed, although most of those are adults – not infants.
I personally think that it would be a marvelous way to display a christening gown worn by someone close, or a special dress from your own childhood – I even think they could be used as “models” for baby clothing/furniture in catelogs or movies!

Very simply explain that -this is NOT possable as it is HIGHLY illegal to sell/attempt to sell/or traffic human bodys in part or whole -and that anyone who would even think this way might want to get some help -these are vinyl dolls -Get a life !!!

I’m with you, Cher. GET A LIFE !!

Yes I absolutey did that too I said that is illegally and morally wrong, so absolutely not lol. wow really i am shocked. did not expect that.

and yes they are morbid wow

Wow. I find that there is always people who like to tear others down with negativity. There are a few people who make their opinions known about my work. But I’ve never had anyone say anything like that. That’s horrible.

Block the blockhead.

Thank you so much everyone for your support!

I agree with what is said, Katie. Block him. Think of all the support you have had with your babies. Don’t let this one blockhead keep you down.

Someone told me you can delete those negative posts

Thank you everyone- I tried to delete them but they are on the fb yard sale post, there is an administrator that maybe could do it. I think he wasnt even trying to be mean but really thought that. I wont let it get me down. ifelt really upset at first because i felt like everyone was thinking i was weird or something but once i explained i had a few girls asking for prices on dolls, so that helps!

Yeah, people like to push their own negativity onto others. It makes them feel more comfortable about the situation I think… kind of like raising themselves up above it.

I was told by a group of women online that I unsult “them” by selling my dolls period, and HOW DARE I sell a doll as a preemie. Oh and that they are insulted I make a doll with down syndrome (my daughter has DS and I think I made a beautiful doll representing her!) and the whole DS community should be insulted.

Its OK to feel creeped out, or uncomfortable. But speaking out rudely pushes it to a different level.
All you have to do is roll your eyes at these people and know they are either:
A. Jealous of your talent
B. Ignorant
C. Miserable people who are just looking for a reason to spread misery and your doll is a good opportunity.

Then move on and enjoy your skills and art

Katys86,
I would love to see a pic of the baby you made to resemble your daughter. I honestly think it would be wonderful to see all different type of babies because they all are beautiful. I don’t know anyone with down syndrome personally, but I always wanted to make a baby to support a charity. I was thinking of even making a preemie to donate to march of dimes premature babies charity.

Love little Kelsey! She is beautiful and I love the idea of every child having a doll that looks like themselves. I remember a sweet little boy with DS and heart problems - he was a poster child for Deborah Hospital for a few years, and he was my Dad’s favorite baby! The most precious children are entrusted to the most precious parents.
