Amanda Milbury’s “newest business venture” is a Kickstarter project where she’ll make you an incredibly realistic doll.
These are what you call “Reborn Dolls” and they’re intensely creepy.
But Amanda Milbury (AKA Northern Lights Nursery) doesn’t manufacture these dolls, she just “makes” them. You see, Reborn Dolls are sold as kits. Making a reborn doll is pretty much the same process as making a model airplane. Only creepier.
So, send this woman three hundred bucks, and she’ll buy a creepy doll kit, put it together, paint it, and mail it to you.
Or will she?
Probably not. What’s probably going to happen is that she’s going to take your money and then never talk to you again.
Does it surprise anyone that after pissing off customers on eBay, Etsy, and doll-trading forums, Amanda Milbury is now trying to expand her “business” into Kickstarter? It fills my heart with hope to say that it looks like Kickstarter users aren’t dumb enough to fall for it.
But how much you want to bet she’ll try IndieGoGo next?
