Happy Monday, everyone!
I brought up the topic of ‘Is your doll collection complete?‘ awhile ago on YouTube, and I thought I would chat about it here on the blog as well 🙂 I have had a lot of amazing changes to my reborn doll collection in the last few months and I wanted to make an update.
Currently (of the time of this post), I own five reborn dolls; I don’t count Trace Wade as he is a cuddle baby and mainly for display. Here is the list! You can click each doll’s name for more details and links to artist pages:
- Truett Michelle – “Elyse’ by Cassie Brace. Reborn by Cat Johnson of Cat Creations Reborns & Silicones
- Trevor James – “Evelyn” by Cassie Brace. Reborn by Jody Slater of Heavenly Butterflies Nursery
- Song Kai – “Cammi” by Ping Lau. Reborn By Mary Kate Bashline-McCormack of Hill Country Reborns
- Robyn Cassidy – “LouLou” by Joanna Kazmierczak. Reborn by Lauren Speech-Green of Pura Vida Babies
- Mila Raquel – “Sailor Rose” by Cassie Brace. Reborn by Valerie of Valerie’s Originals
And now, for the fun updates! I have three (3) new blank reborn doll sculpts waiting to be painted. I have planned who their artists will be, however their painting process won’t get started until 2021:
- Kai by Nicole Russel. Janae Avery of J & J Babies
- Keiko by Jorja Pigott. Mary Kate Bashline-McCormack of Hill Country Reborns
- Stanley Oliver by Vincenzina Care. Bethany of Ryelynn’s Reborn Nursery
Last, but not least (and possibly the most exciting update) is the two new reborn dolls that I currently have on layaway and expect to have home by January 2021 if not late December! What an awesome birthday/Christmas gift 😀 These two babes are complete, and I will be revealing their names and gender in the months to come:
- Johanna Asleep by Bountiful Baby. Reborn by Cat Johnson of Cat Creation’s Silicones & Reborns
- LouLou by Johanna Kazmierczak. Reborn by Cat Johnson of Cat Creations Silicones & Reborns
Now to the question…well is your collection complete? After all sculpts and dolls are home, I have tallied up a total of ten (10) reborn dolls in my collection. This will be the most dolls I have owned at one time. My last largest collection size was eight (8), dates back to 2009. I feel like with ten dolls, I have a solid collection and so far none of them I would want to part with. Even with this ten, I still have at least one other reborn toddler I’d like to add to my ranks, but I don’t foresee me adding her to my collection (or blank sculpts) soon. I am pretty happy and proud of how my doll collection has changed and grown over the years as I learn more about this awesome hobby.
