Custom Reborn Dolls

Custom Reborn Dolls

The process of designing a reborn baby doll is called “Reborning” and is a very laborious task. The expensive and costly custom dolls often take weeks of work and sometimes thousands of dollars if purchasing. Artists often use mohair strands for the newborn’s hair. Reborn dolls often have numerous layers of paint which is baked on which takes significant work. The dozens of layers of varying paints create a realistic skin tone that changes the doll from something that can be bought at a store to a reborn doll that may be confused for a real baby. Toenails, eyes, noses, and wigs or individually applied hair are added to the doll. Finally, one may purchase infant sized clothing to dress the doll.
