Belgian artist Beatrice Van Landeghem attaches hair to the head of one of her Reborn Baby dolls at her workshop, which she calls La nurserie des Tis Lous De Bea, in La Louvière, southern Belgium. Reborn Babies are life-like baby dolls that have become popular mainly with collectors, but also with grieving parents and nostalgic grandparents. The dolls are created from a kit composed of limbs and head made from vinyl and a trunk made from fabric. They are given several coats of paint to create the skin tone of newborn babies and natural-looking hair and eyelashes. They are also weighted to make them feel as heavy as human babies when carried. The price ranges from hundreds to thousands of euros and the babies take about 25 hours to assemble, depending on the level of precision requested by people who “adopt” the dolls.
