Have you ever heard of reborning a doll? When I first read the term "Reborn Doll", I was like......what in the world is a reborn doll? Maybe you too are asking that same question right this minute. I began researching, and discovered I was amazed at the reborn dolls I was seeing on ebay and elsewhere. These dolls are took and repainted to look very much like real newborn babies. Not only that , they have soft baby fine hair thats rooted right into their heads , as well. Some are even made to have breathing mechanisms, that make them appear as if they are really breathing. Some people find these dolls creepy, but not me. However, while researching I have seen some made very creepy indeed. I can't imagine why someone would want a sweet baby doll with horns and sharp teeth, now thats creepy!
These sweet babies are not ! You can go here to learn more about reborning dolls.
The price on these completed dolls range from 100 to in the thousands. Can you imagine? Well no way will my budget afford one, and even the kits to create a reborn yourself is fairly expensive. So me, Simply Shelley...the good queen of make do came up with an idea to make one myself in " make do style " :)
A reborn baby doll kit. Found on google.
See you all soon.....have a fun weekend, Shelley
