Sad story: a 50-year-old businessman recently lost his lover, and grief stricken, created a sex doll replica of the deceased woman. The 18-month-long painstaking process required dozens of photos to recreate an "exact" plastic copy of her face and body shape. £15,000 ($23,169) later, the clone was finished, complete with articulated joints, a titanium skeleton and lifelike skin.
The businessman's name remains anonymous, and no images of the clone are available, but to give you an idea of how flawlessly crafted this type of sex doll is, check out this amazing video on the making-of. Example images from Realdoll (careful- that click through is definitely NSFW) show just how lifelike these gals get.
(Oh my God, one of them has a CBGB necklace! The human race is a lonely species.)
