so, my friend rodolphe found this vintage thumbelina doll and asked me to repaint her! this was actually quite a challenge because everything on this doll is super strongly molded: the eyes, the brows, the mouth ... i had a hard time repainting her. the eyes are not quite right and i know it. =/ but i hope i improved her at least a little. rodolphe made the magical reroot to have her hair color match! (:

i am not associated with disney or mattel. i repaint dolls because i love creating something new and unique; i am having tons of fun doing every single one of them and every one is made with lots of time, effort and love. it's a fun hobby that lets me forget the stress of daily life. (;

Very cute and I wouldn't have noticed the eyes unless I read the discription. Also, Thumbelina is from Warner Bros, not disney

Dein Repaint ist wie immer wunderschön Heart aber der Reroot ist schrecklich!!! Diese Neonhaare!!! Warum macht der das?!?!?

Es sieht so aus, dass ich nicht die einzige bin, die die Haarfarbe etwas zu grell findet...

Ich habe extra einige Screenshots rausgesucht und sie ist durchaus gut getroffen :) Aber es war wohl extra viel Arbeit, sehr hübsch geworden.

Goodness, you have such a way of taking something so corporate and mundane and turning it into such a wonderful work of art!

She looks beautiful! The eyes look a lot better though. She was kind of cross-eyed before :XD:

I love the dress too!

The eyes look good to me. They seem like they were pretty wonky in the original.
