My name is Kimberly Gardino from Beach Babies and I welcome you to this very special listing! This baby is a prototype. Meaning, this doll is one of the very first of this kit to ever be reborned. She is made from the adorable new sculpt "Zori" by Dawn McLeod which will begin her preorder this coming MondaySept.
She has SUCH a sweet little face! Thanks to Dawn for giving me this tremendous opportunity. It was an absolute joy! I painted Zori in a medium Caucasian skintone that is warm and very detailed with lots of subtle mottling, blushing, depth areas and veining. I used Genesis and Authentic Reborn brands heat set paints to paint her which are the most durable paints for painting vinyl dolls at this time.
She is a sleeper and has lovely rooted lashes and lightly painted brows. I delicately painted her barely-there eyebrows to perfectly match the color of her rooted hair. She is finely matted with Genesi. S Matte Varnish which will protect her paint for many years and retard shine. Her nails and mouth have been glossed with a very durable air dry satin varnish.
She was ultra micro-rooted(one hair at a time) with very fine kid mohair in darkest brown. She is sparsely rooted above her temples and more thickly rooted on top and the sides and back like a real baby's hair would first grow in. She has full limbs and is super poseable and huggable for the cutest photoshoots ever! Her arms/legs and head all turn with ease. I stuffed and weighted her with glass beads, poly pellets and cluster fill.
Her head, legs and arms were weighted with the glass beads and a tiny bit of clusterfill and her body is stuffed with the poly-pellets and clusterfill. I call it a "sink-in-your-arm" feel. Her limbs and head were sealed closed so they will not leak. Her body is flesh-colored doe suede and is super cuddly!
Her body was also signed by Dawn McLeod and states she is the 4th of 5 prototypes. She measures about 16"-17" long and weighs about 5 lbs. She was assembled on September 7th, 2019. Just let me know as soon as you pay. She will be sent home with all the clothing from her official photoshoot plus a few more items, a lovey toy, blanket, magnetic hairbows and magnetic pacifiers, birth certificate, prototype COA 4/5 from Dawn McLeod and care instructions from my nursery.
Please keep in mind, the magnets I use are very strong Rare Earth neodymium magnets and people with pacemakers are not supposed to be in close proximity to them. Other than that I have no problem with new ebayers. Sorry for the hassle but we need to protect ourselves. That is illegal and means I would have no protection if the package goes missing.
This will likely never happen as I provide lots of unretouched pictures and offer to take more. <3 <3 Thanks so much for visiting my listing! I look forward to possibly working with you!
