Custom Ordering

Detailed Custom Ordering Information:

Thank you for considering bringing a custom-made reborn doll into your home.

Please use the custom order form on the cart page before adding your reborn doll to the cart.

 

Each reborn doll is hand-made to your selections made below, by Elmarie Menge. Below you will find detailed information about how each reborn doll is created.

                                        Painting:

 

Genesis heat set Paints are used to create that beautiful baby skin coloring with each layer being applied one thin coat at a time.

Each layer is baked before another is applied, this creates depth to the skin and gives the baby beautiful-looking skin.
The painting is sealed with 3-4 layers of matte varnish.

Eyes and Eyelashes:

On open eyed babies only high quality polyglass or glass eyes are used, they are specially designed to resemble ultra realistic baby eyes in every detail.
These eyes have a glossy finish to give that subtle wet eye look.

The eyelashes are very fine and wispy little hairs and are the most realistic eyelashes on the market. 
All babies have rooted lashes.

Sleeping babies have their eyelids painted with those tiny little veining babies have.

Reborn Hair:

 

Hand-rooted hair is mohair hand-rooted strand by strand into the doll’s vinyl head. It’s sealed on the inside so it can be gently brushed and styled.
Only the highest quality hair is used to ensure the most realistic hair possible.

Painted hair on the baby is done all by hand, strand by strand using Genesis heat set paints.  
The paint has a gloss varnish added to it to give the slight shine baby hair has.  
It is then sealed with 3-4 layers of matte varnish.  

Body and Filling:

A high quality Doe Suede body is used for the baby, it is designed specially for the dolls size and is very durable, and easy to keep clean.
The body has shoulder and hip joints, which are attached using strong teddy bear clips, enabling them to be rotated easily.

The body is attached using clear cable ties to ensure they are secure.

The limbs are filled / weighted with high quality glass beads and polyfill,
The body is weighted with large glass beads contained with a sack, then filled out with quality polyfill making the baby nice and cuddly and feeling like your holding a real baby.

Clear cable ties are used to connect the limbs / head to the body, they are a lot stronger than using string.

Magnet Pacifier / Dummy  

Magnet pacifiers are added with some babies for extra display options.

Clothing

Your baby will come home fully dressed and wrapped up in a blanket.
All clothing is specially picked out to suit the baby.

The finishing touch of bringing the baby to life with a comfortable outfit, sleeper, or gown is another one of our favorite parts.  

Your baby will come home with at least a basic clothing pack, with the option to upgrade the clothing pack.

Example Only

Box Packing:

The baby will arrive home in a box that has been specially hand-packed by Elmarie Menge herself. All items in the box are picked out, especially for each baby.
Items included in box packing vary but will include some of these items: Blanket, nappies/diapers, toys, socks, mittens, shoes, bibs, changing mats, mohair conditioner, baby powder, and anything else Elmarie finds during the packing of your doll.
