I get really scientific when I weight my dolls because I really want to achieve the most lifelike weight distribution possible.
First thing I learned about weighting: real baby weight on a doll feels much heavier than a real baby. The first doll I ever made was 7lbs and she was far too dense. I’m guessing that may have something to do with the fact that 7 lbs of mostly water feels softer and lighter than 7 lbs of glass. I needed to find the ideal doll weight.
Hi! I am Kim. I've been creating dolls all my life. I started stuffing cotton balls into my mom's pantyhose when I was a little girl. Now I hand-craft dolls that look and feel like real babies.
