Nelly was painted in multiple thin layers in my very own 3-dimensional technique
 that I have developed during the past 5 years since I have been making special
doll creations now.
 Fine pores, veins and even capillars complete the realistic appearance of her skin.
Many different realistic skin tones and shades were used to make her look like a real baby.

  Using a special newborn technique all over her skin gives her the perfect illusion
of a living creature. The special paints I  work with are used in the German doll industry
that is well-known for its high-quality standards. By combining a special activator
together with the paints they will stay permanent and never fade.
This activator is the product of the year 2007 in the reborn world!



   Body and Hair

Nelly’s arms and legs were weighted with the tiniest glass beads and permanently
sealed afterwards. Her custom made jointed doe-suede dollbody was completly filled
with baby fat that makes her soft and cuddly while holding her in your arms.
I only use a very soft but dry quality of German squishy pellets that will not stick together
at any time.


The cloth of her body has a very special texture that feels incredibly soft and cuddly.
Once holding this sweetheart you will never want to give her out of your arms again!


Only the finest quality of Angora mohair was micro-rooted into her head by using
 German 43g ultra-micro-rooting needles. The head was completely sealed from the inside.
You can wash, comb and style her hair now in the way you prefer.




  Eyes, lips and nose

Nelly used to get soft eye-lashes of the finest human hair available.
 Her nose and sweet mouth were carefully opened and dark-backed.
 Her lips have been permanently sealed with a soft shining vanish
  after being painted in different thin realistic layers. She also used to get a
perfect detailed baby manicure on her tiny little fingers and toes.



   Baby’s layette

Nelly will come home with a new adorable outfit by Carters USA togehter with
her little bunny rattle and her custom-made magnetic pacifier.

   About the artist  

My name is Carmen Sommer and I am the artist behind Once So Real.
I studied arts and was always interested in drawing and painting. I started reborning
more than 5 year ago and was one of the first reborn artists in Germany.

As I am a perfectionist regarding creating lifelike baby dolls it always takes a very long
 period of time until I have finished a baby. This is why you will seldom find my special
creations on ebay, but mainly at international doll exhibitions.

This prototype of Nelly will presented at the International Doll Exhibition
in Ahoy / Rotterdam at the booth of Nel de Man.

Last year we started producing an exclusive line of exceptional reborn doll kits
together with my dear friend and partner Lynne Bollhoefer of Dolls So Real Inc.
and Nelly is the very first vinyl kit of Nel de Man.

I hope you will love this little sweetheart as much as I loved to reborn her for you!

Special thanks to my dear friend and business partner Lynne who is one of the nicest
and loveliest persons I ever met in this wonderful doll world!

Thanks also to Nel de Man, one of the greatest Master Doll Artists in the world.
Thank you dear Nel for your trust and  friendship and for those wonderful creations,
your babies are truely a real work of art!


Many greetings from Germany!

Feedback der Käuferin von Nelly vom 27.11.2007

Liebe Carmen,
tja, was soll ich sagen? Ich bin sprachlos!!!
Noch nie habe ich sooooooooooo ein Rebornkind gesehen!
Wo ist das Plastik geblieben? Die "Haut" sieht aus wie Modelaine!
Die letzten besseren Rebornkinder habe ich voriges Jahr in Eschwege gesehen, aber da war keines nur annähernd so lebensecht wie Ihres.
Diese winzigsten Äderchen auf Lidern und Wangen, wie bei meinen Kindern damals. Und die Haare erst! So fein gerootet.
Ich brauche Ihnen ja nicht zu sagen, was ich da schon Fürchterliches gesehen habe, Sie kommen ja viel mehr herum als ich, und wissen was ich meine.
Sie haben das sensationell gemacht!!!!!
Danke für die perfekte Nelly!
Und wenn Sie im neuen Jahr wieder einen Rebornkurs geben, einen mit allem drum und dran, dann würde ich gerne dabei sein.
