I will not paint Harlow and Felicity because their mouths are so weird to me, they look unnatural in my opinion and also quite painful for the babies to have their mouths like that
To me, the Realborns have always been my go to kits if I want a very detailed kit because the limbs are nicely detailed and the heads generally are very realistic and detailed too. I understand that BB will want to make some new kits that have unique features so that it doesn’t feel like we are painting the same doll kits every time.
Harlow’s mouth is not natural to me, I know the real baby’s mouth is similar in the photos but if you were to use a pacifier with Harlow, would hee mouth be covered to look like she had the pacifier in her mouth or would it sit weirdly on her face? The same thing applies to Felicity, how would she look with a pacifier? Would it sit weirdly on her face?
I know that we all have different tastes and that we all like different things but in my opinion, Harlow and Felicity’s mouths just look unnatural. Bryson’s lips are very large and the real baby Bryson’s lips don’t look swollen like the kit’s lips do. Chase and Realborn James both have lots of forehead wrinkles too and they look like little old men to me Neither the real baby Chase nor the real baby James have those forehead wrinkles. I know that some people will like those features but if the real baby doesn’t have those features, its just a bit strange to me lol
Don’t get me wrong, the real babies are all beautiful and the Chase and James Realborn kits look just like the real babies, to me though, the forehead creases are just wrong and if James didn’t have those forehead creases, I would absolutely buy the asleep kit - I don’t mean to be rude with my comments, I guess I’m just very picky with things but all of the Realborn real baby models are beautiful
