Royal dolls give the evil eye
If it weren’t for the red uniform and lace-covered dress, you might be hard pressed to identify this couple as William and Catherine.
Not sure what it is with this pair, but doll designers must have a unconscious streak of nastiness when they sit down to carve their royal features.
Arklu seems to have at least recognized this absurdity in their artistry and is unveiling their royal wedding dolls today using descriptives like “delightfully kitsch” and “a touch eccentric.”
William seems especially cursed by the toy companies, and this Arklu version looks downright evil with its arched eyebrows, though the hair flatters him.
Kate appears to a suffered some sort of scalp injury, but at least the smile on her rather oversized head gives her away. And what's going on with those eyes?
Barbie and Ken they ain't.
Of course, this is not the only questionable version of the wedded couple. Paradise Galleries has a $200 version (right), that also falls into the vaguely creepy category.
Arklu says their dolls’ look combines “British craftsmanship and cutting-edge modernity for a truly authentic British look.”
With a little British humour thrown in, we hope.
