Thinking of getting a beautiful reborn doll? Where to start !!!
First, start by deciding if you want a silicone or vinyl baby, that really is the basis of everything. Then, it will also allow you to set your budget.
Now that you've decided on that and set a budget, it's time to start your research! Several possibilities are available to you, either you buy a baby already made, for which you had a crush, or you ask a reboring artist to make you one from scratch, this is called a "custom". She will use the kit of your dreams, and based on your indications, your tastes, your requests, she will create the tailor-made doll you have dreamed of so much! The price will vary according to the talent of the setter and your requests.
You can therefore look on Google to see the existing kits if you decide to have a personalized confection. Beware of scams on the internet, unfortunately, scammers are everywhere. Take the time to properly educate yourself about the artist you have chosen. Read reviews of his work, ask his clients for advice on his work. Do his clients seem satisfied with his work? Does she have a good reputation? Is she experienced or new to the field?
Also make sure that the doll you adopt will be an original and not some poor quality Chinese imitation or copy. Thus, your baby should have his certificate of authenticity (COA) as well as an engraving on the neck (for most kits).
Will you have a nice box opening? Is shipping included in the price? Also remember that if you buy abroad, the delivery will surely be more expensive and you may have to pay customs fees on arrival. Can I pay by Paypal to be subsequently protected in the event of a scam? Does the craftswoman charge taxes? These are all questions it would be interesting to get the answers to before investing such a large amount of money. Several artists also offer payment plans, which are very interesting to spread the payments according to your budget.
Take the time to look at these older creations, ask for photos to see the hairline up close too.
