This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by Vivien Leigh's much acclaimed portrayal as Scarlett O'hara from the now timeless classic, "Gone With The Wind", particularly as she looked in her famous portrait in the film wearing a magnificent blue dress.

I used a 16-inch Scarlett O'hara doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to more faithfully replicate Vivien Leigh as Scarlett from that particular scene I had to pay careful attention to have the doll's expression reflect the same expression as Scarlett from the portrait.

The doll's hair has been completely restyled.

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

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 . Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

I have been very busy with other doll projects but I am very pleased to present my latest ebay offering. Diana Ross and her music has been very much a part of my growing up years and many memories of my life back in the Philippines, so creating a celebrity custom doll honoring Ms. Ross was an absolute pleasure.


I use a Mattel production doll for this project. The inset photo at the bottom 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 hair rework to match the proportions of the face. .

Rosalind has to be one of my Fave girls... this sculpt (Lea) is always so nice to work with. She was created using a Barbie Basics #5 Model. As always, the factory paint was fully removed and she was given a full facial repaint. I also took her hair down, washed and conditioned it and then gave it a soft feathery style with some bangs/fringe. :)

Caprice was created using a 11.5 inch Barbie Basics #5 doll by Mattel. All factory paint was fully removed and she was given a full facial repaint! I also removed all her gorgeous original black hair (it was REALLY hard to do, you know! lol) and gave her a full head reroot in red Katsilk saran with a touch of light blonde mixed throughout for highlights! :hug:

Carmen was created using an 11.5 inch vinyl Barbie Basics No5 doll by Mattel. All factory paint was fully removed and she was given a full facial repaint in artist acrylics and sealers. I also took down her hair, washed and conditioned it and then cut and styled it into a gorgeous long feathery style. She is currently for sale via auction... if anyone is interested, you can find her auction link on my website here...

Thanks so much for looking! :hug:

Finally she is done!
My OOAK Aurora from Walt Disney´s masterpiece Sleeping Beauty :
"A crown to wear in grace and beauty, as is thy right and royal duty"

As base doll I used a Barbie doll with the Mackie face mold (Happy Holliday Barbie), the original facepaint is removed and she got a full face repaint to look like Aurora in the movie. Her hair is restyled into her signature curls and bang. The crown and the necklace are custom made, I used several Barbie accessories, glued them together,painted them with acrylic paints and later glued little swarowski crystals to it.
The gown is handsewn, the bodice is a matt satin adorned with blue pearls, the collar is white shiny satin, the sleeves and the middle part are printed cotton, I painted more roses on it, embroided with a golden thread. The skirt is made with 3 parts, underskirt is a polyester in dark blue, in the middle satin (the same from the bodice) and the upper layer is light blue chiffon, very delicate.

I hope you like her!

I don´t only do Disney dolls ;-)

One of the dolls I´m working on is Audrey Hepburn how she appeared in the movie "Funny Face" playing a model. This is one of the outfits she wears in the movie beeing the "sad bride".

Her face is fully repainted, her hair is restyled, she has applied lashes. Her veil is handsewn. Now she´s waiting for her dress.

If I inspired you to create something similar, please share below! I'd love to see it! (Please add proper credits to your artwork as well)

Two Monster High Ghoulia dolls have been transformed into the Weeping Angels from the Dr Who episode "Blink".

The dolls have received full repaints. Their hair, dresses and wings were sculpted from airdrying clay. They retain their posability in the neck nd arm joints, but the legs and bases are fixed and stationary.

The "screaming" angel has facial details sculpted using Milliput epoxy resin.

OOAK Monster High Steampunk couple. Toralei and Clawd have received full repaints. Toralei's gloves have also been repainted.

Toralei wears an orange dress by Melovegangrels. I added the brown pawprint sleeves and underskirt with lace. The corset is handmade from pleather and laces up the back with metal eyelets.

Clawd wears his original shoes, shirt and waistcoat (buttons added), but I handmade his trousers. His arm protector is made from pleather, as are his goggles. The hats (The larger one is from a J-Doll, the smaller from a dollhouse Heidi Ott doll) are decorated with wooden laser-cut cogs from evilbay.

this doll is fully rooted with mohair (took a very long time)
and is is the first fully rooted doll I have done. I was pulling blue hair off everything when I was done, including my mouth! BLECH!
SOooooo messy but I think the hair turned out amazing! it's a gorgeous color and I'm sure I will be making a mermaid using what I have left. :P


* This is a commission for Watts

He wanted a repaint to go with his OC named
"EVERLY" a haunting beauty,
she is a ghost girl revenging her death...

all details were up to the buyer (including almost the death of me, rooted hair) ^_^

AHHHHHH :squee:

I finally finished her! My first realistic/celebrity/movie character etc. blah blah blah repaint.
 Please don't judge too harshly :iconpuppywantplz:


I had a great time transforming her from the bland Jakks Pacific doll to what you see now. 

This version lacked so much. The Disney Store doll even had a staff :/

So I sculpted a staff, finger nails, & some kind of ring and a display base for her to stand on. 

I gave her some of my  very time consuming realistic eyes that reflect light from different angles, just like in the movie!

If you haven't seen the movie, please go see it. It's a great one ^___^

Thanks for peeking!

Beach time Nefera!

I am just disappointed by the lack of attention Nefera gets by Mattel. She's currently not in any new lines or mentioned in any up coming lines. No fashion packs or anything!

So as much as I love Nef, I decided to play around and make her a swimsuit out of her basic clothes and change her make up a bit

I cut then curled her hair, gave her more black eyeliner & green eye shadow. I then modified her basic outfit, removed part of her shoes to create wedges. I also modified her jewelry.

Thanks for peeking! I hope you like her! ^_^


Currently she is not up for sale, I love her too much!

Sorry for the watermark but ive been seeing more and more of my pics posted on other sites with my copyright watermark cropped out. If you see any please inform me! Thanks

My lovely 5 yr old designed a doll! She's been wanting me to make a doll for her for a long time, but couldn't make up her mind on what she wanted. We put them all into one doll. She wanted rainbow hair, solid purple eyes (like an alien, lol), fangs, and pink and purple leopard spots. The doll is finally done. I have to admit I thought she'd be awful, but she's super cute!
