DOWN SYNDROM REBORN KITS..its about time!

i am noticing, more and more kits being made, or made into, Down Syndrome babies/toddlers! \

and i cannot express my thrill about that idea.

it may have started at some point, seriously wiuth Kathryn Shefers sculpt she was making into a kit, i had put some money as a pre-order on it, hoped it would come to be, but her sculpt got ruined and the idea went by the wayside, i do hope she rethinks that and deideds to put out, for the most part a very authentic looking kit, the others just lack in the realism of what a DS baby/ child looks like, but hers..were spot on.

she did the sculpt from one of her daughters baby pics, her oldest has DS.

Kathryn Sheafers work. her original sculpt of her oldest daughter as an infant.
when she lost that sculpt, i never heard much more about it.
always loved the idea if ppl could take a standard sculpt and convert it, which some ppl have.
if the sculpt had yes that were not traditinal, and almond shaped, some would give the kit a go, and some actually can pass as a good attempt at a DS baby/ child, and others, while they are called such, lack that "look"

so heres some examples:

 this kit is supposed to be a DS baby...has a slight slant to the eyes and the tongue is poking out. if its painted and rooted it may have more of the characteristics of a DS child. good sculpt tho, cant remember whos it is. (sorry about that)
 this is a doll, and was converted into a DS baby, and for the most part, passes to me, if i had to guess, id say this was a DS baby, no problem,
this is a kit, on pre-order thats also being mentioned as a DS baby. im not seeing it, to be honest. cute kit tho, but doesnt have that DS qulaity...

and this kit, has passed by my feed on facebook, and is also noted as a DS baby...
"jenny" sculpt by Alecia Toner


again, just not seeing it.

but i do applaude those who are on that creative streak where the move is to show that anyone can be loved in any sculpt. EVERYONE has the same right to be depicted and made into a dream baby.

this doll is by far the closest i have seen as a DS child, besides Kathryns sculpt that never came to be:
work by Evon Nather (reborn artist)

by the way, SAME baby as i showed above wrapped in a blanket.

as you can see from the before and afters...it was just a doll...but the artist saw something different in that sculpt and created pure magic!
and i love it!

i need to know that sculpt (doll) so i can try to find some and maybe do my own, or..wait for that PERFECT LOOKING DS kit to come along (kathryn, id love to have your kit! just saying)

HERES THE THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE IDEA THAT WERE ALL WORTHY OF BEING MADE INTO A KIT AND LOVED! CHEERS!!

    1. Some are standard dolls before anything was done. Another is a true sculpt to a mothers DS syndrome daughter. The point for my post was to share that the fact there are DS individuals out there. And we now have the oportunity to make them into dolls. Which i find to be enlightening
