Description of Esme
Lovely Esme is a sweet, realistic sculpt by Laura Lee Eagles. Her edition of 1250 is sold out. Esme has an open mouth and can "suck" her thumb! She has full arms and legs, a full vinyl anatomically correct body with a doe suede contoured cloth body inside. She is weighted to nearly 5 pounds with Glass Beads and Poly-Pellets. All internal weighting supplies are professionally concealed, glued, and lined respectively. She has 4 strong magnets concealed behind her open mouth for her pacifier. Her body is more rigid than a cloth body doll, due to the full vinyl body. She will not be as "floppy" as other reborn dolls. Her doe-brown eyes are German Lauscha Handblown Glass eyes.
Esme's Mohair is a soft and shiny light brown color. (Hair Styling suggestions found here.) Her silky mohair is directionally hand rooted with an ultra fine German 43G forked needle - only one or two hairs at a time in the pattern of natural hair growth. Esme has a swirling crown. Esme's whispy eyelashes are also rooted in light brown. All her hair is sealed inside with two layers of Water-proof sealant and lined with felt. It can be gently washed when necessary. Spritzing Mohair conditioner and a little Baby Oil will keep her hair styled and lovely! I like to style the baby's hair while wet and let it air dry in place.
Esme's skintones were created with Genesis Heat Set paints in a rainbow of colors in dozens upon dozens of layers to create depth and realism. She has painted light brown eyebrows. Some of the light blonde "baby hairs" at her hairline are also painted. All of her skin is sealed with a thin, textured layer of transparent medium for protection and added realism. Her mouth and tongue, lips, eye waterline, nostrils, and nails are coated with either a glossy or satin medium for appropriate realistic finishes.
