Meet Baby #26
LULU
born May 18, 2014 at 9:43 p.m.
5 lbs, 2 oz.      19 inches long


Lulu is a custom-ordered baby. She lives in Missouri.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Lulu is a one-of-a-kind creation.


Gorgeous Little Oriental Princess!
 
Lulu was lovingly created from Linda Murray's "Tami" retired silver sculpt. She has an anatomically correct full torso and 3/4 length limbs.

To achieve Lulu's beautiful baby complexion, multiple layers of
Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked
to ensure that her baby skin will retain its beautiful detail forever.


Subtle veins, mottled newborn skin, blushing, and tiny capillaries

were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.


Her silky soft black Delta Dawn mohair was micro-rooted by hand,
in a natural growth pattern, one or two strands at a time with a
fine gauge needle,
sealed from inside with waterproof glue
 then cut and styled.


Lulu's amazing dark brown glass eyes were individually mouth-blown
by a master artisan in Lauscha, Germany. They have ultra realistic detail.


Long black lashes were hand-applied, and her 3-dimensional eyebrows
were painted on
with a superfine brush to give them a barely-there appearance. Her skin and brows were then texturized
for incredible realism.


Lulu's little girl torso is lined with a jointed doe suede body.
Her little
limbs, head and body are weighted

with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester

fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give her the look, feel
and sweet smell of a newborn
.

Moist looking lips complete with little spit bubbles, a hint of baby tears,
a moist nose, and tiny
manicured fingernails and toenails
add to the realism of this little girl.


Her little nose has been opened, shaded for depth and backed with purple felt to give the appearance of "breathing". She has a magnet behind
her mouth so she can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Lulu bears the artist's signature.
She traveled home with
her birth certificate signed by the artist,
the sculptor's Certificate of Authenticity, a handmade ID bracelet,

a beautiful layette and her favorite little stuffed animal.
