I hope my friends here won’t mind me sharing how happy I am that, after just two months of seriously starting on my reborning hobby, I have tracked down many of my favourite kits!
My “kit quest” has taken me on a virtual world tour of the internet into places no reborner from Australia would usually be found haha! I’ve had many translated conversations with sellers who don’t speak English and have met many delightful people. It’s been quite an experience!
I realised early on that I must have excellent taste because somehow, most of my favourite faces are also the ones that have been wildly popular and sold out for ages! Just my luck to like all the expensive and hard to find ones!
But anyway, I have been steadily finding the kits on my wish list, and even though they are often more expensive than when they are new, I’ve found some good deals too. So far, I have located:
Poppy Strydom (I think she must be rare - hardly see her anywhere)
Meagan Strydom (I think this one must be super rare - I had never even heard of her before the lady I bought Poppy from mentioned she also had Meagan for sale)
And I have also bought some kits that are much more current:
Cammie Lau - yes obviously I am a huge Ping Lau fan lol
I would still love to find:
I know I have way many more kits than finished dolls at this point! I am almost finished the painting on my first doll - she is a Silja by Linde Scherer that I bought maybe ten years ago when I first thought of getting into reborning, but never got further than buying a few kits…oops! haha!
There seems to be a problem of glorious excess in this hobby - too many adorable and beautiful kits, and more being released all the time - but not enough time or $$ to make the babies
