this is amazing work. they are called Destinys Reborn Babies. each doll takes up to 40 hours to make and no two dolls are the same. the skin, hair, feel and weight of the dolls are made to resemble that of a real baby.
what's especially interesting about these dolls is that there is quite the controversy surrounding them. it seems that many of the buyers of these handmade dolls are parents who have experienced a great loss and are looking to fill that void. a couple of department stores have excluded these dolls from their shelves because they are too life-like.
