My name is Chelle and I'm from New Zealand. I've always been into dolls growing up, though only learnt of reborns earlier this year. I also purchased my first reborn in March. By June I was addicted to the art of these babies and started my new passion of making them myself. I've completed five babies so far, almost six. It's something I've really enjoyed and am so glad there's a place like this to further support my endeavours to improve my skill and share in a lovely community!
I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of my recent babies - I've got a long way to go but I'm really proud of them!
This is my Amelia - "Honey" by Donna RuBert kit. She's my latest finished baby and for myself as it was a kit that reminded my Mum of me as a baby haha.
This is Ellie - "Gemma" by Donna RuBert. I made her for a friend, she was my "first" client apart from my best friend who I live with and who shares in the world of reborns haha!
And this is the wee man who started it all for me - his name is Sam. He is the "Lily-Mae" sculpt from Doll Dreams.
I hope to get to know you all a little more and share in this great forum! Thanks for stopping by!
