Reborn Doll Artist To Buy From in 2021

The most asked question I have receive lately is in relation to reborn doll artists, specifically. Who is the best? What artists are available for custom doll orders and so on. In today’s post I’d like to give a few artist recommendations for the current year of 2021. Please note, that an artist’s availability may change without notice. Your best option for current information on any particular artist is to follow them on social media (Instagram, Facebook and personal web pages). The following list is made up of artists I have worked with as well as a few who are trusted in the community with wonderful client feedback. Good luck!

Before You Buy: Shopping Tips

FACT: Sellers on AliExpress are NOT reputable sales partners for blank doll sculpts/kits and offer counterfeit/low quality items. The following are only some of the USA/UK websites that are reborn doll sculpt dealers that work directly with sculptors for offering reborn doll parts: Macpherson Crafts, Irresistibles, TruBorns, Bountiful Baby and Dolls by Sandie
