I am very pleased to share my latest creation, Lady Gaga. She is arguably the most popular newer artist to emerge in the music scene. Her fashion sense and image has no doubt influenced and captured the consciousness of the public. I have been thinking of creating her doll for a while now and am happy to finally have it come to fruition.

The doll I used is a 17-inch resin ball jointed Venus Sybarite doll produced by Superdoll. The base doll I used is not a representation of any celebrity or character, but I thought the mold was close enough to create a Lady Gaga repaint.

Full facial repaint, completely precision hand repainted featuring three dimensional repaint/shading/highlighting on eyes, eyebrows, and lips to faithfully transform the doll into the likeness of Lady Gaga, particularly inspired by her looks from "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" music videos.

As I could not find a similar wig to the one that she wears in the "Telephone" music video, I had to hand restyle and hand dye the wig myself.

The inset photo on the bottom shows the mass produced version as originally released.

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.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

If that's pop art, what do you consider real art?

maybe you're not affiliated to any doll company in any way but you should consider being sponsored by one, your work is breath taking

Spectacular would be putting it mildly. She looks better than some photos I've seen of her. You are a talent beyond belief!

I'd like to invite you to my new group.
It's for non-standard dolls (Barbie/Monster High repaints, Obitsu, non-resin hujoo). Don't worry, it's not recast friendly. If you're interested I'd love to have you :3
