WASHINGTON – Their eyes glow red in the dark, and tiny fangs protrude from their mouths. They may sound like creatures in a movie, but “monster reborns” are ending up in the arms of people all over the world.
“People call up and ask for either vampire baby or they want a zombie baby,” says Bean Shanine, who is producing the monster babies from her shop in Bellingham, Wash.
The reborn craze starting in the early 1990s with people buying reborn kits on websites like eBay. The kit contains all the material needed to create a realistic looking newborn baby, including synthetic body parts and paints.
