View Full Version : so wth was the deal with doll man
03-14-2011, 10:20 PM
Saw this guy at the show Sunday and saw him last year too. He walks around w a realistic female doll that lookes like a 3 year old. The doll has her own name tag and he talks to her. I am a pretty open minded guy but what's the deal. Is it an act or what's up????? Lol

Obviously this was an error. The age limit for the show is 16 years old.

I figured it was part of the other people with props that were controlled by their hands. Has to be associated with a vendor. Seemed kinda creepy, therefor an effective product!

This was brought up last year on this forum, he is the head of a hearse owners club or something and apparently the doll is just something he always carries with him?

sooo he's naturally creeptastic?

No he has a haunt and the doll is on a swing in his haunt Ive heard. He just brings her to t.w every year. Ya it is kinda freaky though?! The doll looks real and looks like it could be his daughter. I think its a way to mess with other haunters. He got ya didnt he! LOL!

That was WEIRD! Larry

I have seen this guy at 3 different Transworld shows and at IAPPA twice. The story I heard is that his daughter died 10+ years ago and the doll was made in her image. But that could be a tall tale. If you speak with him he seems completely normal other than the fact that the doll is "real" in his eyes.
Reminds me of "Lars and the Real Doll"

I've never seen this guy before. Not sure how I've missed that every year.

Weird! We were trying to figure out his deal last year when we first saw him too. Saw him a few times this year, and it seems that he changes her outfits daily as well. Very odd seeing a grown man carrying around an American Girl doll.

I saw him and was trying to figure out why he had it. I was thinking he bought it there but never seen a booth with them , if I knew it was this creepy I would of said ( Yo , what's up with the kids doll ) LOL ,

Isn't it weird? We see all these spooky costumes and characters around St Louis and dont blink twice, but this guy creepes out a lot of people cause he is NOT doing anything spooky or weird and is not dressed strange. He had on dress pants and polo shirt and just walked around. LOL. Perhaps we, as haunters can learn something from him. That at times, less is more.....?

Ok Ron, did you miss the part about the life like little 5 year old girl he was carrying around and talking to??????????? I got alot of crazy shit but nothing comes close , I think he was at the wrong convention lol

He's just another carpetbagger trying to sell his product and is too cheap to pay for a booth. If you ask him about it he will give you his card/info. He stood in front of my booth last year for a long time trying to get attention. I was just about to tell him to move on or I would sick TW on him and he left on his own.
Sorry if I sound pi$$y, but vendors pay a lot of money for that little 10' by 10' spot. When you factor in all your costs you can easily spend tens of thousands with-out blinking a eye. Having someone stand in front of my booth and distract my possible customers as they walk by really strikes a nerve.

If they moved the show somewhere else? A city where the unions aren't such a pain in the ass ? $1400.00 for a booth? You got a tuff nut to crack to get that money back. Or- is this a standard price always for a transworld show ? Please , advise. I just want to learn. And, oh, ya.... The doll guy, i hear he's a friend of tater's. Ha ha !!

See I would've struck up a conversation with him to find out what the deal was, LOL. Although that's just me...I'm flypaper for the crazies anyhow so he probably would've talked to me first anyhow, LOL!

Do you have all of Wesley Willis's Albums?
"I'm Gunna Kick Batman's Ass" is my favorite of his songs. I mean, he puts so Much emotion into it!
"Pontiac builds excitement, Rock On Chicago!"
The guy with the doll took a real chance, her parents are very rigid people! Strong, silent types.

I've seen this guy at a few shows...the weirdest thing is, he TALKS and WHISPERS to the doll. I spotted him asking the doll it's "thoughts" on a prop. IDK...pretty creepy.
I've also heard the tale about it being his daughter...you guys should look up the video about "Robert the doll". ;)
