Emil Vicale, who makes pop culture inspired custom action figures on herobuilders.com, is selling a yellow-haired and deeply tanned “tanorexic” doll for $29.95. When asked by NBC if the doll was inspired by Patricia Krentcil, who is facing child endangerment charges because she’s suspected of taking her young daughter to a tanning bed, he replied “Yes of course she inspired it. Why would I make something as hideous as this?”
Hero builders also has for sale: Michele Salahi in her white-house crashin’ sari, a whole set-up with Michael Jackson dangling a baby out of a window, a $400 custom talking Jersey Shore action figure that you can customize with different tatoos, and a great deal of other interesting toys. They even custom make dolls to look like you, if that’s your thing.
In other Patricia Krentcil news, she’s being banned from tanning salons across the state of New Jersey. She might have to buy her own bed to maintain her look.
