Presenting the 5th Annual Such a Doll! Photo Contest

November 2, 2017 , In: Featured Story, Social Spotlight , With: 2 Comments

It’s time for our fifth annual Such a Doll!TM baby photo contest! Between now and November 22, all doll lovers are invited to submit baby photos (newborn to six months) of themselves or a family member for a chance to inspire our next baby doll . From December 1-8, fans vote from 8 finalists on our Facebook® page, and the winning photo is expertly sculpted by one of our Master Doll Artists and lovingly handcrafted into a custom collectible doll.

Click here for more details and to submit photos.

Here are some of our previous winners!

Ava Elise
Last year, Ava Elise’s winning photo was submitted by her proud mother Brittany. World-renowned Master Doll Artist Ping Lau then expertly sculpted a doll so adorably accurate to the winning photo. Ava Elise’s baby-soft brown hair is hand-rooted, and her big blue-gray eyes are framed with long, hand-applied lashes. Isn’t she sweet?

Out of over 2,000 entries, Alanna’s photo was the fan favorite! Working from the contest photograph, Master Doll Artist Ping Lau meticulously captured Alanna’s darling features and bubbly personality. Alanna is handcrafted of RealTouch® vinyl and hand-painted to enhance her precious beauty, from the soft blushing of her cheeks to her delicate brows and rosebud lips. (And, what a precious outfit she has on!)

Our first ever Such a Doll!TM contest winner, Savana’s photo was submitted by her proud grandma. Sculpted by Master Doll Artist Ping Lau, Savana is a lifelike sweetheart from head to tiny hand-painted toe. Lau perfectly captured Savana’s heart-melting smile and bright smiling eyes.
