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

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...

~Jinafire~ (In private collection)

(Funny how many "artists" have copied this doll by doing a tattoo on the same exact side of her face. The tattoo came about because I felt her forehead was too big & I didn't want to wig her)

Let me just point out that well after I created this doll, I saw a few other Jinafire's with a tattoo on the same side of her face. 

it's nice to see how my work inspires other's.

Well I almost never do this but just to show the differences.

Offcourse I understand perfectly that some people dont accept or even hate repaints.

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!

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) ^_^

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
