New baby in my house for first time in a long time

Post by sjones571 »

I finally got a new baby in my house. It is the first one in a long time. I love her so much except her eyes are crooked. I want to center them but they are glued in. I might tackle it later but not now. Has anyone reborn Atticus? If so can glass eyes be centered? I noticed almost all of the reborn Atticus's I see have slightly off center glass eyes. It bugs me, lol. Well here she is.

Congratulations! She’s adorable 🥰 I tried removing eyes from an old reborn kit and it didn’t work, they were glued in tight. I’d be afraid of ruining the paint and kit so have never tried again. I think her eyes look cute, like how real newborns are still trying to get their eyes to focus and sometimes they cross or seem to have a mind of their own :)

Congratulations! She’s lovely! Not sure how you’d be able to remove the eyes though. But they make her look so newbornish. 😉❤️

:D :D Congratulations, Sharon. She is adorable! I don't notice a problem with the eyes by your photos. You must have to be very close up. She sure is cute, though. I am so happy for you!

Hugs, Dion

Oh, she is adorable, I really love her. It isn't too obvious to me about her eyes.

Could you contact the person who reborn her to see if she can change the position of the eyes. I absolutely wouldn't try it from the front since they are glued in. I might attempt to take the stuffing etc., out of her head and see if you could remove them that way, you might get a better perspective of how they are glued in by looking inside the head at the sockets. If I was going to attempt it that is the way I would try although I have never done it. I would be worried about tearing the vinyl and possibly damaging the paint if I tried removing them from the front.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments and the advice on the eyes. I have already taken the stuff out of her head and looked and the eye sockets were cut open and then the piece of the vinyl glued over the eyes. I will take care of them from inside. I pretty sure I can do this if I can cut through the glue with an extacto knife. I use to change eyes all the time when I reborn. I just hope my hands will get inside that tiny head, lol.

Congratulations!!
Your Atticus is adorable!!!
Have had some success with changing eyes, but also mussed paint on another one. I, too, think she looks sweet as she is now.
