Hello and welcome to my listing! My name is Brooke Nicole. I am a bubbly, 35 year-old photographer, doll collector and doll artist. I have been creating ethnic reborn dolls since 2001, and I am lovin' every minute of it!

Today, I am delighted to present Lyric Noelia for your adoption consideration. She is based on the detailed Prototype Isabella kit by Nikki Johnston.

 Guided by an artistic ability, both acquired and intuitive, I spent several weeks blissfully crafting Lyric into a one-of-a-kind portrayal of an ethnic, AA or A/A (African-American), multiracial, biracial, Latino or black baby girl. Supreme art materials were used in her creation. She is an heirloom-quality bundle of kissable art, who wishes to be adopted and proudly treasured by a loving mommy.

Few words can express the frenzy I experience when I lay eyes on a blank canvas. Lyric arrived to me as an unpainted, blank doll kit. Once I developed an artistic vision for her, I immediately whipped out my assortment of trusty paint brushes and diligently hand painted her Honey Berry skin tone. Representing the spectrum of tan ethnic skin tones, Honey Berry is medium honey brown coloring with peachy undertones and babyish mulberry accents.

Lyric's skin tones flaunt exceptional coloring variations! Her carefully arranged shadows feather directly into her prismatic midtones, displaying a flawless multi-dimensional effect. Subtle turquoise veins and crimson red capillaries are strategically painted beneath her sprinkle of skin mottling, giving the illusion of a circulatory system. Her majestic chestnut shading, immaculate copper highlights, and dewy skin finish will make her a stand-out addition to any doll collection.

Lyric's photographs were taken in natural sunlight at different times of the day. Each photo accurately represents her coloring. The sunlight loves to dance around her painted shadows making her overall coloring appear lighter, darker, reddish, or even golden depending on the available light. Her vinyl skin behaves just as real brown skin does. She is extremely photogenic just like a real baby! :)

As a dedicated artist, I am constantly striving to offer collectors babies the fancy, colorful babies they deserve. Take a peek at these exciting ethnic painting techniques I have developed and perfected! Tutorials are available for purchase!

Based on the fundamentals of decoupage, this original technique produced a well blended, dewy finish for Lyric's skin.

BN's Neapolitan Chiaroscuro V.2 ©

My personal version of this classic art technique allows light to bounce off key areas of Lyric's skin, for a maximum three-dimensional appearance.

BN's Indigo Sfumato V.3 ©

This leading edge t-zone coloring enhancement centers ambient light to create symmetry and accentuate Lyric's facial structure.

BN's Featherblend ©

This blending technique produces a streak-free, professional finish without airbrushing.

Lyric's hands and feet are utterly adorable! Not only are they petite and precious, they are also masterfully colored. I adore the ebony pigmentation on her little knuckles and toes. The palms of her hands and soles of her feet showcase realistic rosy tints and highly intricate veining. Her tiny nail beds are impeccably manicured with dazzling salmon hues and glossy, protective lacquer.

My painting techniques require a great deal of time and patience. I always use photos of real ethnic babies (mostly family members) as guides when creating my works of art. Every inch of Lyric's coloring was achieved using durable, artist quality, heat-set paints.

Lyric has open nostrils. I personally love how her 3D painted eyebrows compliment her rooted eyelashes!

Lyric's pinky-pie lips are one of his hallmark features! Her little pout not only boasts sophisticated tonal distinctions, but also a deep coral glow surrounded by a subtle chocolate contrast. Her tiny ears show a splendid medley of painted veins, capillaries and dark brown pigmentation. No detail was overlooked on this adorable newborn!

Hundreds of black mohair strands are securely threaded through Lyric's vinyl scalp. The swirl at her crown spirals clockwise into raised raven waves. 

Lyric's hair is 100% rooted. It is brushed downward on the sides and brushed upward into cute little cowlicks that mom can brush anyway she likes once Lyric arrives home. The painted hair line effortlessly blends into her little curlicues.

Lyric's mohair needs to be cared for and styled just like a real ethnic baby's hair. Styling ethnic curls labor intensive but oh-so-much fun to play with! :) 

Lyric's hair density is super fine! Very thin, sparse hair. It can be gently brushed and combed. It responds best to water, paraben-free leave-in conditioners, and alcohol-free sculpting gels.

Lyric's hair is dry in every photo. Sculpting gel allows the hair to retain a sleek, moist look in its dry state. A hair styling tutorial is included as part of her care package.

Not only does Lyric look real, but she feels real too! She is the size of a real newborn measuring approximately 18 inches long and weighing in at 4 pounds, 2 ounces. Her soft torso is made of peach doe suede. She is professionally weighted with steel pellets, plastic pellets and huggable clouds of polyester filling. Her limbs are filled with extra fine, granulated glass. The feel of the packed granulated glass mimics human bone and tissue.

Lyric is very squishy and cuddly, just like a real baby. She is also very poseable. Her head turns easily from side to side, and needs support when she is held.

The best part of collecting life-like dolls is shopping for real infant clothing at consignment shops, department stores and swanky boutiques! Lyric wears newborn sized clothing and size 0 baby shoes. Her full vinyl arms and full vinyl legs make shopping a breeze!

Lyric will arrive home wearing the pink ruffled outfit in the photos. This little ensemble is made of the finest cotton! It feels delicious in your arms!

In addition to an extravagant "baby shower in-a-box", Lyric will arrive home with an extra outfit, a baby blanket, an adorable plush bear, two disposable diapers, a magnetic pacifier, and a brush and comb set.

I will email Lyric's new mommy a colorful birth certificate complete with my logo, signature and care instructions.

Believe me when I say I live by precision and excellence when it comes to doll making. My babies are showered with fine details and pure artistic love. Lyric's description is 100% accurate, and you will not be disappointed if you adopt her. She is a cute little princess for sure. Her shipping costs are free of charge.

Lyric is not a toy and is intended for an adult doll collector. She was created in a smoke-free, pet friendly home. Only items stated in the listing will be sent home with him. Thank you so much for visiting!
