Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Ms. Hepburn as she appeared in the 1953 film "Roman Holiday".

The inset photos on the show the transformation from mass produced version to finished repaint.

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.

I have recently created my first Princess Diana repaint and this time I'm very pleased and excited to share my second Princess Diana repaint. Her wedding has got to be one of the most iconic moments in Royal history and it is for that reason that I created this doll - again out of a Franklin Mint Princess Diana doll.

Yet another custom repaint of Mattel's Cher celebrity doll. This doll started out as the 2001 first ever released 11 1/2 inch Barbie-sized Cher dressed in a lavender gown originally designed by Bob Mackie.

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to create a faithful replica of Cher's features particularly inspired by her signature look.

The doll's hair has been also been painstakingly reworked. I gave it a trim and then thinned down the thickness of the doll's hair by running the scissors along the length of the hair. This was done to achieve a more realistic scale in miniature. Her bangs also underwent restyling - it was heat set so that is sits flat on her forehead.

The inset photo on the bottom middle shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.

With the huge following and popularity that "The Vampire Diaries" has gained and as a follow up to my custom Damon doll last year, I thought I'd create Stefan Salvatore, the other half of the Salvatore vampire siblings from the hit tv show. Paul Wesley portrays the character along with Ian Somerhalder as Damon and Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert.

I use Tonner Doll Company's factory produced Stefan Salvatore doll. The inset photo at the bottom right shows the doll in its original factory state.

As with all my creations, I completely strip the original factory paint on each of the dolls, and completely repaint the facial features in, paying attention to accuracy of likeness and lifelike expressions. The doll also underwent extensive hair rework to match the proportions of the face. .

Being a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy film, I anticipated with much excitement Tonner Company's release of their LOTR line of dolls based from the films.

This sculpt in my opinion is absolutely spot on, but sadly the factory paint failed to bring out Cate Blanchett's strongly distinct features. Scale and proportion were major issues, particularly the eyes and lips.

Since her makeup was very minimal, it was a little tricky as well.

Yet another Cher-inspired creation. This year's custom Cher repaint is based upon her look in her latest film "Burlesque". The base doll used was Mattel's 11 1/2 inch "If I Could Turn Back Time" Cher doll.

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to create a faithful replica of Cher's features particularly inspired by her look in her 1980s music video "If I Could Turn Back Time".

The doll's hair has been also been meticulosuly reworked with heat straightening, cut and style. I also delicatley paint enhanced the hair line for added realism.

The inset photo on the bottom right shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.
