Please welcome baby Vivi Lynn. Hugest thanks ever to Brenda & the whole Macpherson team for thinking of me to reborn this gorgeous prototype “Sara Linn” by the very talented Antonio Sanchis, produced by Macphersons Crafts! She has been meticulously painted using Genesis Heat Set paints – custom mixed for a completely unique skin tone, complete with blue and yellow undertones, and over seven layers of mottling for ultra realism. Her capillaries and blushing is blended well with tiny milia on her button nose.
Her skin has been sealed with matte varnish to keep her shine free permanently and dewy skin finish was used to create realistic, still soft to the touch, newborn skin texture. Shine was added to the corners of her eyes, lips and nostrils. Baby Vivi’s hair is combi, micro painted & micro rooted, 1-2 hairs per follicle using black slumberland mohair. Her hair looks and feels perfect, and best of all, hardly requires styling!
Vivi has also been magnetized for a pacifier and hair bow. Her eyes are german glass eyes in a topaz green. Her lashes are painted and rooted using slumberland deep dark brown.
Vivi’s body is the custom doe suede, full arms & legs non jointed body with ruched bum. It has no ball joints and fits her arms and legs beautifully. Her limbs and head have been sealed and weighted in all the right places to give her an authentic newborn feel (perfect for cuddles). Limbs have been filled with glass beads and polyfil, with glass beads in a sealed sac in his torso and head (so nothing will leak). I NEVER use sand in my babies – they can travel worldwide! She weighs 7lbs 5oz.
Her hair and eyelashes are all Slumberland mohair (best of its kind) & have been rooted & sealed so they’ll never fall out and can be washed and styled gently with a soft brush and water or leave-in baby conditioner (Johnson’s, etc).
Vivi Lynn comes with a birth certificate (customized! You can change her name to whatever you like & pick her birth details) and her signed prototype certificate of authenticity by the artist.
Vivi’s hair was micro rooted throughout her crown. Her painted hair has been sealed and textured to look and feel just like real hair. For me, there is nothing more realistic than a beautiful head of hair on a reborn, but styling is a nuissance. Her hair is the best of both worlds. It looks like a newborn, and NEVER requires styling or maintenance (unless you want to). Her hair has been directionally rooted and trimmed to give her that beautiful newborn head of hair! I am immensely proud of every head I paint & root, and Vivi is now my most prized head to date! I am confident you’ll love her just as much as I do!
Vivi Lynn goes home with the cutest layette!! Everything pictured with her (besides props) goes home with her. Everything is brand new and was chosen to compliment her beautiful colouring – pinks, silvers, and creams. She wears sized 0-3 mos and some 3-6 mos clothes.
