Japanese Artist Offers Funerals for Love Dolls and Lets Customers Live out Fantasies as A Murder Victim, Blow-Up Doll or Dead Girl

A Japanese artist is allowing her customers to live out their darkest fantasies in her unusual photography studio.

Leiya Arata, who is in her thirties, holds funerals for sex dolls, encourages people to dress up as murder victims for photo shoots and turns people into love dolls. The photographer, who set up the fantasy studio at the start of the year in Osaka in western Japan, charges up to $800 for the funerals.

Leiya said: “They are all great human beings but have very low self-esteem. Their desire to change or be accepted and loved is so strong and this is the only place for many of them. I want to be there for that.”
