YouTuber Shane Dawson just bought a $450 Furby that was an exact replica of his BFF Jeffree Star, and fans are shook. Sculptor and artist Sunny Biss has become famous on the internet for creating the “long Furby.” Essentially, for each project, she will take one of the famous toys from the ’90s and turn them into one-of-a-kind creations.
In order to recreate Jeffree’s iconic look, the artist added a long pink wig and Gucci belt to the character. She also gave the Furby human-like hands that had nails similar to the makeup moguls and even drew all his tattoos — talk about dedication!
On Wednesday, January 29, fellow YouTuber John J Salomone spotted the replica on eBay and immediately Tweeted photos of it, tagging both Jeffree and Shane.

“I had just finished making it the day I heard about Jeffree’s breakup and I was like crap, do I hold it?
