Halloween is just around the corner and I thought what better way to kick it off with a custom repaint of the gruesomely seductive queen of macabre, Elvira - Mistress of the Dark.
This doll underwent hair restyling to better replicate Elvira's. As with all my custom repainted dolls, I remove the original factory makeup. I then repaint the character's features paying attention to precision and accuracy as well as true to life facial expression.
Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

Based on Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer winning 1936 novel, Gone with the Wind became an epic historical romance in 1939.
The production of Gone with the Wind was troubled from the start. Filming was delayed for two years due to David O. Selznick's determination to secure Clark Gable for the role of Rhett Butler, and the "search for Scarlett" led to 1,400 women being interviewed for the part.
This original art was created for Linda Jones Enterprises launching their new Fine Art license for Gone with the Wind and is currently being displayed at the Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego, California.
On a personal note, I grew up with this artwork all around me, as my mom is a huge GWTW fan. So she was thrilled when I told her I was created licensed imagery for fine art reproduction.
