What are life like reborn dolls?

Reborn dolls are typical dolls that have been dismantled. This involves taking off the limbs (arms, legs and head) and taking all the stuffing out of the body. A typical doll that is used are berenguer dolls which are considered ideal due to the faces and proportions they come in. Each limb is stripped of any factory conditioning such as paint, hair and unwanted plastic. They are then rebuilt by the artist who aims to get them to look as real as possible. There are many processes involved to do this and it can take quite a while to complete. While painting any of the limbs, it may involve adding multiple layers of paint or color, and additional styling on top for skin blemishes and veins. Of course, each of the limbs needs to be done in a similar style so it can take quite a lot of work to achieve this. The head also requires a lot of work other than painting since the eyelashes and hair must be added. While you can use a wig to do this, many consider microrooting mohair to look better and give more realistic results. Many artists sell their creations on ebay where there is a growing market for them. However, the price can vary considerably with some dolls fecthing up to $100 and others going well past the $2000 mark. If you are looking at buying a reborn doll then be sure to look at the pictures of the doll as well as the price! They are sometimes referred to by other names, although ultimatly it means the same. For example, ‘living dolls’, ‘unliving dolls’, ‘reborn babies’ or just simply ‘reborns’ are alternative names for them. The reborning process has been around for a few years but it is still quite new and always changing. As the popularity grows and more and more artists try it out, new methods are being refined which makes it quicker and easier. Since there is no definitive way to do it, many people have developed their own techniques from start to finish. This is good for the community since it means there are many, many different ways to get the same results. However, it also means spending quite a lot on varied art supplies and equipment in order to make a reborn. For example, brushes, paints, Qtips, mohair, and of course the doll you will be reborning are only just the start of what you require. They are not to everyones liking however and seem to split opinion from person to person. Some seem to find reborn dolls cute and adorable, whereas others find the thought of them weird and creepy. Each to their own really, but this has to be praise for the artists talents to get them looking so real.
