A while back I posted a picture of this baby and I am doing it again in search of an honest opinion. I did a custom baby for someone and I used the body from Maggie and I did not want to throw the head away because that’s just me I can’t waste things. So I decided to paint her and I ended up opening the eyes on the kit. The problem is all I have left is a head now. If I order another kit then I am still in the same situation. The problem with this is I don’t like the look of this baby so I don’t really want to put anymore money into her. I tried to make a cuddle buddy for her but I don’t really care for that either. I am wide open to suggestions here. Is it even worth messing with? What do you guys think of the look of this baby do you think that she would even sell at this point?Uploading… Do not even worry about hurting my feelings because you won’t. Like I said I think this baby is a tad bit on the not so pretty side. I hate to say that about any of the kits but this one I got to say is not my favorite.
I think you did a wonderful job on her! She is beautiful!
I did a cuddle buddy on her but I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve never seen one before or it’s actually not very good. I filled it with poly pellets and it just seems like it won’t hold its shape. I don’t know what to do. I appreciate the compliments though. I just don’t like the look of this baby.
If I was to sell her with a cuddle buddy what did they usually go for? I am completely out of my element here.
I have Shyanns limbs here but they look too small for this baby’s head…
You could watch for limbs from other dolls to go on sale at B.B. I think she’s cute.
I may do that. I thought about just taking some pictures tomorrow and posting it on my Facebook page and telling people to make me an offer and see what happens. I’ll just tell them it has a homemade cuddle body on it. If anyone knows anyone that sells cuddle buddies I may be interested in buying one for it.
I think she looks great! Maybe grab a limb set on sale. I don’t care for her scrunchy face but others love it. With her having peeking eyes I think she will be a big hit when you sell her.
She kinda reminds me of my nephew when he was 5ish hours old. Super new, and opening his eyes for the first time It’s a very newborn look and I think she pulls it off well
@CamsGigi makes them. I think she would make an awesome cuddle baby!
Thank you I sent her a message.
I think she looks great. I love what you did with her eyes. I think you would definetly be able to sell her with a cuddle body.
If you don’t want to invest any more money and have the cuddle body I would put her on it and put her up for sale. Someone will really like it. The cuddle bodies I have seen that seem to pose well are filled sort of bean bag style in the arms and legs with plastic poly pellets and poly fill. They are not stuffed tightly so as to make them more poseable. Maybe you stuffed yours too tightly?
If anything it’s too loose. It’s just so floppy
Certainly you can stuff it more then.
Cuddle body and donate to a seniors home
I don’t like the kit period. However, you painted it really well and the opened eyes looks really good. I’m not sure if that helps, I know I have kits I don’t carw for thrown in a basket with the same dilemma. What do you do?..
I love her open eyes. Little grumpy butt or not, someone will fall in love with her. She might be a good cuddle baby for a child. When I do cuddle babies I fill the limbs with polypellets and fill the body and head the same way I do my vinyl limbed babies.
I actually like her. She has that newborn grumpy ‘this light is way brighter than it was in the womb’ face.
You could try with some extra limbs from BB, or otherwise just sell with a cuddly body.
I think you have done a stellar paint job on her and I do like the open eyes. A cuddle body and a cute sleeper and she will sell. Suggest a Christmas Gift in your listing. I know it’s a long way off but hey maybe you could pop her into storage until then.
