Carly was created from the “Tibby” sculpt by Donna RuBert. I actually bought this sculpt the better part of six months ago to practice new paint techniques with, but she turned out so cute I just had to let her go. (I’m pathetic…)
This is the biggest baby I have created thus far. She wears a size 18 months and she is 31″ tall! Her size made me SO nervous! I worried that her skin tone wouldn’t be smooth due to the fact that I constantly ran out of mixed paint and when I mixed more it seemed to be a different shade! UGH!
Carly also has the longest hair of any of my babies. I used 12″ human hair and I LOVE it! It is very soft and manageable, but I truly despise the amount of dye in it, and it took seemingly forever to get the excess out.
I had a sweet little pastel-colored wardrobe selected for her, but to my chagrin her dresses would not fit her as they all had cap sleeves! Carly has 3/4 limbs so she needed regular short sleeves. I was too impatient to go shopping for her again, so I opted to use her Onesie and tutu skirt for her photo shoot.
I think she turned out SO well and I really enjoyed creating her. She’s already gone home with her sister Faith to New Jersey and I’m looking forward to working on more big babies this year.
Thanks for looking!
