Reborn Baby Dolls swiftly popular in Scotland
"Reborn Baby" artist Deborah King's skills at their best expression as she reproduces babies into look alike dolls at her home in Fountainhall, near Edinburgh, Scotland.
Proud parents around the world keep photographs, baby shoes and many other things as precious memories.
Now people can add look alike dolls to their momentums.
"Reborn babies" are disconcertingly life-like baby dolls carefully crafted in vinyl, which have become swiftly popular mainly with collectors, but also with nostalgic grandparents and grieving parents. Made and collected by an online community of enthusiasts, they are painted several times to create the mottled colour of newborn skin, have mohair hair and eyelashes, and are weighted to make them feel as heavy as human babies.
