Welcome to my auction. My name is Victoria Lee, I am the artist behind Pretty Baby Dolls. I love making these beautiful babies and do my very best to create the most realistic babies possible. I always put all of my heart and all my energy into creating each and every baby.

Ann Marie’s Beautiful Skin
I created Ann Marie’s beautiful and realistic skin by using very thin layers of genesis heat set paints and my own special techniques to create a translucent skin tone with subtle peach undertones. The ghsp are non-toxic and never fade or chip. I used prisma pencils for the finer detailing on this big beautiful baby (e.g., veining, eyebrows). I did not open Ann Marie’s nose - but have carefully shaded her nostrils for realism.
I pride myself on my ability to blush and detail babies with a truly realistic and translucent skin tone and Ann Marie looks like a real toddler - my photographs rarely reflect the true realism of the baby. I spared no time or expense in creating Ann Marie
Ann Marie’s Eyes, Hair, Eyelashes and Eyebrows
Ann Marie has the sweetest eyes in the perfect shade of newborn blue/grey. She has applied upper lashes in a light brown.
I commissioned Lisa Beeler at Precious Newborns to root Ann Marie’s hair with a beautiful blonde angora mohair. I purchase this baby soft mohair from Delta Dawn Premium Mohair.
Lisa did an outstanding job at rooting Ann Marie's hair. Ann Marie’s hair is a light blonde with a gentle wave but can be combed straight - her hair has been sealed from the inside so it can be gently dampened and styled. Ann Marie has barely there eyebrows in a light brown.
Ann Marie’s Little Hands and Feet
Ann Marie’s fingers and toes are blushed just like a real baby. I do fine veining on the hands and feet - oftentimes this veining is hard to see in my photographs - her nails are tipped and sealed with an air dry gloss.
Coming Home Layette
Ann Marie will be coming home to you with the two outfits she is wearing in her pictures. These clothes are not new - but gently used and chosen specifically for Ann Marie. My time and money is spent in creating the actual baby and my mom does a great job at helping outfit my babies.
My mom found the romper and bonnet set at a local thrift store and it is just adorable and appears to be hand made. I’m hoping she can find a pair of shoes for Ann Marie - but for now - she is coming to you bare footed. Any other props, or items I used for staging (including the sleeping baby) are not included and used for staging and photographs only.
All of Ann Marie’s photographs are untouched and have not been enhanced in any way. I took some of the pictures in natural light and others I took using a flash. I have enlarged some of the photographs within the listing - but please view all of the photographs of Ann Marie by utilizing the enlarge and zoom features.
The photo aspect of reborning is not my forte - so I'm not that good at the photography - but these pictures are what she actually looks like - she looks very real and there is a very good chance this baby will exceed your expectations rather than under estimate.
