It’s important that you research different vendors and look at any feedback should it be available.
While you may be tempted by a cheap price, you need to ensure that you’re going to receive a quality item for your hard-earned cash.
Online auctions can also be a popular avenue for doll enthusiasts, but they must still be approached with caution.
While there are many reputable sellers on sites such as eBay, there are also a series of unsavoury sellers looking to take advantage of people.
This can include bids suddenly rising to ridiculous proportions as well as being sent inferior products, should the product arrive at all.
Ensure you read the research the feedback and try to cover yourself where possible.
For example, try not to send any money outside of the site, as this will make it harder to recoup should anything go wrong.
Making Lifelike Silicone Dolls
While there are often vendors who will supply dolls pre-made, much of the fun can be in creating the doll yourself.
We’ve already touched upon the way a reborn doll is created, in that it uses a cloth body, glass weights and polyester fibre, there are other materials you can use.
These include baby pellets and tummy inserts, it’s really down to personal preference as to which weighting material you use.
If you want to try your hand at creating a silicone doll, then there are also solutions available that allow you to craft your own baby dolls that look real.
If this is your first time, you may find the process a little tricky at first but fear not.
There are several online outlets and communities looking to aid budding doll enthusiasts, as well a series of YouTube videos.
Although the hair of both the silicone and reborn is rooted in the same way, there must be more care taken in relation to the silicone doll, as there is no way of securing hair from the inside like the reborn doll.
Those new to the world of reborn and silicone dolls may need to look around before committing to a certain type to ensure that they’re getting the most enjoyment from their purchase.
Once you become familiar with the options available and the differences between the two, you will be more confident when it comes to making a purchase.
