on the complete creepiness front

These things . . . ugh. Maybe I've seen too many actual dead babies. Do these "reborns" give anyone else the shudders?

These photos remind me of the creepy pictures that Nicole Kidman finds about halfway through The Others ... remember those? Ew, ew, ew.

Red7eric, I thought the same thing! It used to be a common thing (round the turn of the century, I guess) to have photos taken of the dearly departed, including children. Often times the parent or parents would be in the photo, too...gazing lovingly on their baby's corpse. I've seen several books with such photos...creepy is the right word.

heh. i've seen several books with such photos ~ photo albums in the photo drawer at my father's house. we have lots of coffin / funeral / dead kid photos. they're dreadful.

most recently, my somewhat estranged cousin wrote a letter to my parents and when daddy opened the envelope, a photo of uncle jimmy in his coffin slipped out. he looked up at pat and said "i don't think this is good news." heh.

brion ~ i agree, i think some of the discussion about these "babies" is creepy beyond belief.

eric ~ haven't seen that one. don't want to if they look like this ;-)

eeew. That is actually quite disturbing. The hands are a dead giveaway. (pun intended, after the fact, ha) The idea of someone who's lost a baby ordering one of those ... 'dolls' is disturbing on some level. Definitely creepy.

Seems like an overreaction to a beautiful doll that doll collectors will treasure. I think the term 'reborn' refers to the fact that it is a doll that's modified from an original doll kit designed by someone else, not that it's meant to replace a child that was once living. Even if a bereaved mother did find (temporary) comfort through having one of these dolls, what's the harm in that?

From what I remember in my family history, a few generations ago taking photos was so infrequent that sometimes a funeral photo was the only image ever made of a loved one.

What troubles me more is WHO HAS FIVE HUNDRED BUCKS FOR A FAKE BABY? AND WHY????!?!?!

I'm aware of the whole OOAK (one of a kind) scene for Barbies and American Girl crap from my days on, but I don't get that either.
