Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno is coming to our local cinemas this month and I am reaaally excited for it. :love: What I'm especially excited for though, is seeing the guy who brought Kenshin to life, Satoh Takeru, in person!!! Some of the cast members and the director are coming to Manila for a Red Carpet procession, Press Con and Premiere screening of the film. I'll be attending the Red Carpet procession, thanks to my friend Mina winning passes to it! THANK YOU DESTINY!

To join in the RK hype, here's Rurouni Starr. :lmao: This guy seems to be my go-to doll for random cosplays of my favorite anime characters. :giggle:

My most recent 11 1/2 inch Cher doll repaint. The base doll used was a version produced by Mattel.

Complete removal of original paint then given a full facial repaint as well as a rework of the hair to replicate a live version of Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time". Note that hairline was also handpainted to add a more realistic appearance.

The inset photo on the bottom right 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.

I thought the Mattel 12 inch Jack Sparrow was a fantastic sculpt of Johnny Depp and so I decided to transform the doll into the iconic actor.

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 dramatic hair restyling. Also I hand painted a total of 9 tattoos.

At 3 years old, I first heard the tale of the Little Red Riding Hood. At 6 years old, I made my first jointed doll. At 10 years old, I promised myself that one day Id make a beautiful Little Red Hood doll. At 30 years old, I finally made it. It took me 27 years to go full circle. I feel like Ive touched the origin of my being.

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.

These two dolls are inspired by two of my favorite movie characters - Miranda Priestly as portrayed by Meryl Streep and Andrea Sachs as played by Anne Hathaway from the film "The Devil Wears Prada".

You may recall that I have created a repaint of Orlando as Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean. This latest one, however, is of Orlando Bloom, the actor, and not as a movie character.

I used a 17-inch Will Turner produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. As is usually the case with mass produced dolls depicting celebrities, the sculpt is spot on but the doll suffers in the facial paint department, which is as crucial a process in capturing likeness.

So, the first order of business was to completely remove factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring the likeness of actor Orlando Bloom to life, paying careful attention to lifelike facial expression.

The hair underwent extensive and meticulous restyling. First, I cut the hair to a shorter length. Then I heat permed the hair to give it the needed wave. Finally, I layered the hair by running the scissors along the length of the hair. This also reduces the hair's volume and thickness down to proper scale. Last, I handpainted delicate lines of hair along the hairline for more accuracy and realism. Sideburns were more accurately hand repainted as well.

The bottom inset photo shows the doll as it was originally released.

Another custom interpretation inspired by the dashing British actor Orlando Bloom in his portrayal of Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean. This rendition portrays a cleaner-looking Will as he prepares for his supposed wedding to Ms. Swann, which of course never happened in the movie. His expression and detail are also somewhat different from my first one.

We couldn't have an Arwen doll without her beloved mortal hero Aragorn. So here he is.

There is evidently more challenge with this repaint as I had to capture Viggo's likeness but infused with his character's essence. I wanted to replicate the rugged weather worn look and the appropriate expression.

Scaling down the hair took quite a bit of work as well as painting in the facial hair which had to be just the right amount and in the right places.

Here's yet another celebrity repaint I did in late 2007. My inspiration was Madonna a she appeared at the 1991 Academy Awards where she performed the soundtrack to her then movie, "Dick Tracy".

I used a 16-inch Tonner doll called Shimmering Queen with a face mold called Shauna/Sweetheart. I thought the doll bore a resemblance to Madonna's features, so I decided to go for it.

Factory facial paint was completely removed and the doll fully repainted in the likeness of Madonna. Doll's hair style was also transformed to replicate Madonna's during said Academy Awards.

it's time to go to corneration day!! =D so happy she's finally done! i would have never thought that i'd say this but even mini coronation anna's hair style was easier than this one, lol. i really like how her night gown turned out, though, i'll upload a better pic of it soon! (: i now feel like she needs a night gown elsa to go with her, aaaah!
and a huge thank you to my friend claude-on-the-road who heard me ranting over the hair for hours, hahaha. x3

EDIT
thank to anijel for the video of the scene:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGx9q9…
you can hear at the end of the clip that anna misspells "coronation" for corneration, so that's why i misspelled it as well. (;
btw, funny fact: in german she says "my sister's coleration" which i think is even a little funnier, haha. ^-^

Elizabeth Tayor possesses one of the most beautiful faces in Holywood. It is then no wonder that she was chosen to portray one of the most legendary characters in history. Her role as Cleopatra in the 1963 epic version showcased her piercing beauty as well as her acting range.

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to infuse it with the essence and character of Elizabeth Taylor as seen in the movie. This was achieved with an exacting level of accuracy as well as shading and layering of colors, some of which are very subtle. This was all intended to bring out the luminescence Taylor radiated in the movie.

The inset photo on the bottom middle 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 as well as carefully paying attention to proper scale.

This doll started out as 16-inch Mrs. Coulter doll from the Golden Compass Series produced by Tonner & Co.

Factory facial paint was rather dismal. So I completely removed original factory paint and started with a blank canvas to accurately replicate Nicole's features. Doll was also given complete hair style make over copying one of her many hair styles from a couple of years back.

Elvis Presley needs no introduction - the icon that he is. This doll was commisioned by an avid Elvis fan and collector of celebrity dolls.

The base doll used was a 16-inch Twilight Edward Cullen doll produced by Robert Tonner Co.

The sculpt suprisingly bore a striking similarity to Elvis's. So, I proceeded to completely remove factory facial paint. The doll underwent extensive hair styling to replicate Elvis's during the early days of his career. I hand painted his hairline to give it a more natural appearance. Doll also received molded sideburns which were then hand painted. The doll's original hair color was dark brown, so I had to hand dye his hair to a verydark brunette, almost black.

Facial features were then carefully hand painted to capture Elvis's expression and slight smirk.

The inset photo in the bottom middle shows the mass produced version of the base doll as it was originally released.

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by the lovely Anne Hathaway.

I used a 16-inch "Get Smart" Agent 99 doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company.

So, the first order of business was to completely remove factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring the likeness of Ms. Hathaway to life. The doll's look is very versatile so it could reflect Anne as Agent 99 or just as herself.

Next, I transformed her hair style by giving her a heat perm. Careful hand styling makes the doll's hair more realistic and to scale.
