The percentage of women owning reborn dolls is rising. Their reasons for owning one is varied but there are some women who own these dolls to fill in an emotional void of being a mother. Some may find it odd and a bit creepy why there are women who treat these dolls as a real child. They cradle and cuddle their own dolls tenderly just like taking care of a previous infant. While there are some people who might find this behavior to be weird, there are others who believe that this is all normal. We readily accept children talking to their dolls while role playing with their playmates. It should not also be surprising at all that adult women who love their dolls would treat their dolls just the same.
For men on the other hand, most of us readily accept their fondness of playing toy train stations and interacting with toy cars. Perhaps the only unique part of this hobby is its degree of realism. Instead of being treated just like a toy, reborn dolls are not typically used for play. These hand-painted and customized dolls appeal to adult women due to the artistry spent on these creations. Reborn dolls are not mass-produced and each artist who spends his time making one takes careful and meticulous considerations achieve a remarkable life-life quality.
The vinyl dolls are carefully molded and hand-painted layer by layer to achieve a natural looking skin. Most of a reborn artist’s time is spent on painting and rooting each hair strand according to the style and look the artist wants to achieve. Those who are interested in making their own reborn doll can get materials online with reborn doll kits made by known reborn artists as well as doll companies that have been making dolls for several decades or centuries now. But one thing that also interest reborn doll artists is taking inspiration not only from human babies but also of animals.
Anyone can just start this hobby if he really has passion for it as there are several video tutorials online which will show the step-by-step process of assembling, panting, and rooting the reborn doll. This hobby has even gotten the attention of a lot of TV shows and so there have been several reborn enthusiasts and collectors who have appeared to share their opinions about their passion. While some may consider it as a hobby and collection of work of art, there are just a few who really puts so much affection into these realistic creations.
