DATE OF BIRTH
June 22, 2014
4 lb. 2 oz.
LET ME INTRODUCE to you.................ANDREW! He is a ONE-OF-A-KIND creation and the latest little "sugarplum" addition to Sugarplum Nursery!
He is sooooo precious! He was brought to life from the beautiful sculpt "Megan", by the very talented sculptress, Pat Moulton. He comes with a Sugarplum Birth Certificate and he is signed and dated by myself as the reborn artist, on his body. I have given him the name, Andrew, however, his birth certificate will be left blank where the name is to be written, so you may add the name of your choice.
He is a precious little preemie size weighing 4 pounds and 2 ounces, which will feel more like a real baby weighing 5 pounds and 2 ounces, when holding him. His complexion has blotches, mottling, and coloring that "JUST BORN" babies have. He is 16 inches long and his head circumference is 11.5 inches. He is so soft and cuddly, you will not want to put him down.
Thank you Pat for this adorable baby! I have so enjoyed bringing him to life.
PLEASE NOTE: There are several pictures and it may be a little slow loading because of it. Please wait for images to load. The pictures were taken over a 3 day period and I have chosen pictures taken in different lighting to try to give you a good representation of how he will look in your home. A flash setting was not used in any of his pictures. PLEASE READ AUCTION IN ITS ENTIRETY PRIOR TO BIDDING. Thank you, and enjoy the pictures.
Andrew has been given his incredible lifelike skin tones achieved by applying many thin layers of my own blend of Genesis heat set paints. Genesis heat set paints are absorbed into the vinyl by a heat process that will never fade or peel. Just like a real baby, he has been given a mottled complexion and subtle veining in all the places of a real baby, some so subtle it is too difficult to show with the lens of a camera. He has tiny capillaries on his eyelids and a blotchy textured skin on his little cheeks. He has been shaded and blushed in all of his sweet little creases, with no detail being overlooked. His lips have been given a natural shade, then shaded and highlighted to give depth. I also gave them a touch of gloss for a moist appearance. His little nostrils have been gently opened and backed with dark felt to give a depth appearance and have also been given a touch of gloss for a moist appearance. His tiny fingernails and toenails have been tipped for a natural appearance and sealed with glaze for a subtle shine and protection. He is also baby powder scented for that real baby fragrance. I strive to achieve lifelike skin tones on all my babies and am very pleased with the way Andrew has turned out. He is a real cutie!
He has a soft, doe-suede body with 3/4 arms and legs for all those cute little baby poses. His body has been weighted with tiny new steel balls, poly pellets, and premium fiberfill. His limbs and head have been weighted with small glass beads and sealed. He has been weighted to feel just like a real baby. He is so soft and cuddly and will snuggle right up to you! There is no sand in his body, therefore he can be a worldwide traveler :-)
Andrew wears size preemie clothing, and can wear some newborn size clothing, depending on the manufacture, or your taste :-). I like my babies clothing loose and comfortable :-), therefore he is wearing both newborn and preemie month size clothing. The newborn size may be my preference, however, you may prefer the preemie size. Either way, you will have lots of fun shopping for him :-) Clothing in all of my auctions will be some new, some vintage, and some gently used.
Andrew's hair has been lightly hand painted, and then micro-rooted in a chocolate brown premium mohair. It is soooo soft, and amazingly manageable, and can be easily styled by dampening it and gently styling with a comb or baby brush. His hair has been double-sealed from the inside with a waterproof sealer. His eyelashes were hand-rooted, using the same shade of premium mohair with tiny wispy eyelashes like that of a newborn baby.
The picture below shows the hair dry.

He has a magnet placed inside his head to enable him to have a magnetic pacifier. These magnets are strong and caution should be taken when near people with a pacemaker and some electronic devices. If you wish the magnet removed, please notify me at the end of the auction.
Andrew is a OOAK Collectible and care should be taken when handling him as you would a real baby. His head is floppy just like a real baby and must be supported in the same manner as you would a real baby's head. Care should be taken when allowing a small child to handle him. If Andrew has captured your heart, as he has mine, please bid, as there will never be another just exactly like him.
Below are pictures of some of my adopted babies and a few comments from the adoptive parents. I am so appreciative, and feel so complimented by these comments. I would like to thank "ALL" of my past adoptive parents for their patronage, which allows me to continue to create these beautiful babies, an art that I love!
We love this baby! You truly have an eye for detail, thank you!
