About Blue Fairy Babies
Blue Fairy Babies began late in 2009. I am the sole artist behind the artistry, Karen Valtin. My journey began very slow with me finishing my first doll in June 2010. I was actually afraid to start, but once I got going, I haven't looked back. I have done hundreds of vinyl reborn dolls since then and I also paint silicone dolls and resin dolls and BJDs. I take my time with each doll, not rushing the painting or the rooting.
I chose the name Blue Fairy Babies for my nursery/business name because like the Blue Fairy changed Pinocchio into a real boy, I change vinyl and silicone dolls into real looking babies. Each doll is meticulously painted, micro-rooted(hair), weighted and assembled to assimilate a real baby as much as possible. I enjoy making a doll from my own vision as well as yours such as is the case with custom dolls. I also completely enjoy making portrait dolls, which are dolls designed to resemble your little one as much as possible. As every baby is unique, one can expect just one or two major facial features to closely match your real newborn from a kit but you'd be surprised with the results.
