Upscale boutique clothing &
and welcome to my listing! Please allow me to reintroduce myself after
taking a three year break from selling reborn dolls on . My name is
Brooke Nicole. I am a bubbly, 30 year-old photographer, doll collector
and doll artist from Virginia. Ethnic reborn dolls have been my area of
expertise since 2001.
I am delighted to present Zuri Skai for your
adoption consideration.Guided by an artistic ability, both acquired and
intuitive, I spent several weeks blissfully crafting Zuri into a
one-of-a-kind portrayal of an ethnic, bi-ethnic, multiracial "black
American" or "African-American (AA or A/A)" baby girl. Zuri is
based on the detailed Milaine prototype kit sculpted by master
sculptress, Evelina Wosnjuk.
art materials were used in Zuri's 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.
Zuri 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
herCacao Silk skin tone.Representing
the spectrum of brown ethnic skin tones, Cacao Silk
my original milk chocolate brown skin tone, that
features sepia undertones and burgundy overlays.
Zuri'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 saffron highlights, and
dewy textured skin will make her a stand-out addition to any doll collection.

tears. She has just finished crying. :)}
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 the fancy, colorful babies they
deserve! :) Take a peek at three exciting ethnic
painting techniques I have developed and perfected:
Eboni Satin ©
on the fundamentals of decoupage, this original
technique produced a well blended, dewy finish
for Zuri's skin.
Neapolitan Chiaroscuro V.2 ©
personal version of this classic art technique
allows light to bounce off key areas of Zuri's skin, for a maximum

ambient light to create symmetry and accentuate Zuri's facial structure.
Zuri's hands and feet are utterly adorable! Not only are they
chubby 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 magenta hues and glossy, protective lacquer.
If you look closely, you can see lines and pores on her
My closely guarded 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
Zuri's coloring was achieved using durable, artist quality, heat-set paints.

has open nostrils, a soft spot (fontanelle) on top of her
head, and the prettiest onyx-brown eyes I have
ever seen! Her eyes have a magnetic twinkle her new
mommy is sure to love. I can't get enough of her thick painted
eyebrows and feathery, rooted eyelashes. They really
compliment the glistening baby tears on her newborn
peepers. There is also a realistic pink tear duct on her
lips are surely one of her hallmark features. Her little pout
not only boasts sophisticated tonal distinctions, but
alsoapeony-colored glow surrounded by adeep
brown contrast. Her tiny ears show a splendid medley of
painted veins, capillaries and dark brown pigmentation.
No detail was overlooked on this pretty baby girl!
ringlets are so much fun to play with! :)}
strands of mohair are securely threaded through Zuri's vinyl
scalp. Her hair is so sparse, you can see her little
scalp peeking through her ringlets. Her softly painted hair line swirls and effortlessly blends
intoher fine curlicues.
Zuri'smohair needs to be cared for and styled just like a real baby's hair.
Her hair density is super fine/sparse, and can be gently brushed and combed. It responds best to water,
paraben-free leave-in conditioners, and alcohol-free sculpting gels.
Zuri's hair is dry in every photo. The gel allows
the hair to retain a wet look in its dry state.
Not only does
Zuri look real, but she feels real too! She is the size of a real
5 day-old infant measuring approximately 18 inches long and weighing in at
6 pounds, 4 ounces. Her soft torso is made of white doe suede.
professionally weighted with plastic pellets, steel 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.
Zuriis 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.
that paci :)}
best part of collecting life-like dolls is shopping for real
infant clothing at consignment shops, department stores and
swanky boutiques! Zuri wears 'newborn' sized clothing and
size 0 baby shoes. Her three-quarter vinyl arms and
legs make shoppinga breeze!
will arrive home wearing the velour, designer brand, strampler and coordinating
top she is wearing in the
photos. It is such a beautiful peach outfit and perfect for spring! Shewill also bring a pair of
designer pajamas, a pink and white swaddle blanket, an
adorable, plush bear, two disposable diapers, a magnetic
pacifier, and a brush and
comb set. A pretty gold baby bracelet will be attached to a
colorful birth certificate complete with my logo and
baby, nom nom :) :)}
Zuri's shipping costs are free of charge.
Her adoption fee must be made via PayPal.
She will ship within three business days of payment receipt as I need time to gift wrap
her for mommy. Payment should be received within 12 hours of
I am offering an 18 month layaway for Zuri. The winning
buyer should forward a minimum deposit of $850 within 12 hours
of sale end. The payment schedule is entirely up
to mom, as long as the balance is paid off within 18
months. Easy, peasy. :)
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.
Zuri's description is 100% accurate, and you will not be disappointed if you adopt
her. She is a pretty little princess for sure!
Zuriis 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
her. Her head contains a strong magnet that should
not be taken around pacemakers of other
electronics. Thank you for visiting my listing and
have a great day!
