NOTE: These dolls are up on ebay for 3-day auction. Auction ends Sunday March 19th at 6:00 pm PST for Belle and 6:47 pm PST for Gaston.  Auction links below:




Custom repaint and hair restyle of Disney Store Belle doll as portrayed by Emma Watson from the upcoming live action film Beauty and the Beast.  BODY HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO A MORE SUITABLY PROPORTIONED ONE, WHICH I FEEL IS MORE TO SCALE WITH THE SIZE OF THE HEAD. I THINK THE ALTERNATE BODY IS MORE VISUALLY SUITABLE FOR THE REPAINT. Also ponytail, has been considerably scaled dwon to be more scale accurate. The inset photo on the top center shows the original Disney Store factory painted doll.

Gaston received a full facial repaint. also, real hair was applied over molded hair, restyled and real hair ponytail added.

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

You are so amazing at this.
It looks creepy with realistic faces on plastic dolls but I love it!

I saw what the new doll of Belle looked like only today and after reeling back in horror, I immediately thought "ooh, I wonder if noeling did a repaint". Amazing work as always, dude!

The original factory job on Luke Evans wasn't completely horrible, this time, but your work is always magnitudes better.

I swear: I did not know that Luke Evans was in this movie, but I thought your doll looked like him just from the thumbnail.

Good job on Emma Watson too.

Her before looked a lot like Emma Watson too but I love both either way.   You also did a great job with Gaston/Luke Evans.
