These Creepy Dolls Are Actually Real Humans

Even if these were toys, they're be super, super unsettling to look at. The dead eyes. The bleached skin. The lack of any discernible genitalia. But they're flesh and blood humans, transformed into terrifying figurines.

Photographer Hayden Wood's brilliantly strange new project "Living Dolls," shows off his career as an advertising and photo manipulation pro. Only now he's advertising the Uncanny Valley instead of... things. Barbie and Ken, the quintessential image of friendliness and love, are now the stuff of nightmare. Like demonic Real Dolls. Excellent work, Hayden. [Hayden Wood via PetaPixel]
