Woman Watches Susan Boyle’s YouTube Video 1000 Times, Makes Tribute Dolls

Susan Boyle hasn’t even won “Britain’s Got Talent,” yet she’s already sealed her place in pop-culture history with a tiny doll created in her likeness. Created by 46-year-old Debbie Ritter from Illinois, who says she’s watched Boyle’s YouTube video “literally one thousand times,” the dolls are made from clothes pegs, wire, and clay. Ritter painstakingly hand paints each four-inch doll and assembles miniature dowdy church-lady outfits for which Susan Boyle is so well known. Of making the dolls, Ritter says: “It’s a lot of work and each doll takes at least a couple of hours. It’s more of a hobby than a job for me but I sell them to collectors too.” The dolls sell for about $21 at Ritter’s Etsy shop. You could also buy a Paul Potts doll from Ritter for $22 and then make Susan and Paul make out. If you’re sick like that. [Telegraph] Keep reading »
