What is this, I don't even.

Posted 24 June 2012 - 12:54 PM

I have a friend who has recently gotten into dolls. Its not super weird, cause it's not a dude. But she and one of her best friends are really into the 1/3rd human height, extremely detailed, changeable hair, clothing, paintable (ceramic?) dolls. They have names.

They have personalities.

Its feels like a pretty borderline psychotic hobby for someone who thought way too much about having children as a teen, but hasn't had kids yet. She's in her mid 20s and may be going a little crazy. These dolls appear in pictures, detailing places they've visited and parties they were at. Like birthday parties. For the dolls, of course.

Anyway, one of the dolls was found knocked over by one of their cats. Did I mention the cats? Like every crazy cat lady, she keeps cats like its a second job. If she starts breeding and selling the cats, it will be. The cats knocked over this doll, and I asked if the doll was planking. Because, since the doll has adventures, I figured it might have been planking in the living room and was waiting for my friend to discover it and take pictures. These dolls are pretty fucking close to alive, if you remember.

She gets mad. And I have to imagine its pretty mad, because I hear the anger in her voice over a facebook post. And I can understand getting upset if something falls from the fireplace. It has the possibility to break. Break? Oh, its a porcelain doll. Yeah, there's a good possibility that it broke, but she hasn't said it yet.

The worst thing though... I'm not sure if that means the doll has "died." Is she going to have a funeral for it?

That. Except as far as I know, this is a psychotic hobby that stays home with her.

Yes.. yes there very well may be a funeral. You may need to practice your archery skills so your flaming arrow can light the funeral barge's pyre.

A few questions..

First - pics of this friend.. I want to see crazy!
Second - pictures of the dolls. Are they like these?

or these?


or are we talking the 'real born' creeper dolls?


Does this story sound familiar?

Example of real born baby doll

I was afraid of that. Though the chance of me needing to light the funeral barge are probably slim to nil.

Secondly, no there won't be any pictures or other identifying details.

And they're sort of like little teenager dolls, so a mixture of all three.

Viking funeral.

On a serious note, think of it this way. Do you tell her about your friends from Dream In Code? In a way we're like her dolls. Think about that one, & then you tell me who's crazy.

Also, so what about cats.... we have three of them, & like anything in life you care for, of course it's a lot of work.

This sounds like someone that didn't get to live out the child hood stuff with baby dolls, so she is just going to a further extent with it as an adult (no offense if some was taken) I think that it will work it's course given time. With the cats, just let them be as long as it doesn't get to the extent of them making the house disgusting and there are under 20 of them haha.

@no2pencil: Had to look up DTF. Don't watch the Jersey Shore.

She's been married once. It lasted almost a year before the guy convinced her to move, saying he'd be out in a few weeks. Then he started dragging his feet, and basically said he wasn't coming out. When she managed to get herself back home, he told her it was over and he was with someone else.

She's currently with a new guy who treats her much better. They recently got engaged, so she's probably DTF, just not with you.

And that's not really the same thing at all. At least I'm fairly certain that most of you are actual, living human beings.

Wait. Some dude wants to marry the crazy baby doll lady? Will little Betsy be joining them on their honeymoon? Will there be pictures of the bride, the groom, and the baby naked in the bed? They could install a Fleshlight in the doll's crotch and make it an official threesome!

From the female perspective, I say your friend is fucking nuts. And the cats have nothing to do with it.

So wait.. all I have to do is lay there motionless and she takes care of all the work? Sweet.

They aren't baby dolls. They are like 1/3rd natural height teen-aged human replicas. She orders them, and then you paint them, dress them up, put new hair on them. She gives them names and personalities. She poses them and takes pictures. I haven't seen her refer to them as her children, but she does refer to them like they're real people. She seems them as a poseable 3D art or something.

And even that would seem less creepy if it were something like, "I set Shaun so it looked like he was doing X."

No it's more like, "I caught Shaun doing X and I snapped a picture."

So... they're baby dolls.

I have daughters. They don't differentiate by age/gender/height/construction material/size-to-scale/accessories. They are all baby dolls. Your friend is still fucking nuts.
