This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic favorite "Breakfast at Tiffany's. As a special tribute, I am pleased to create a custom face up of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Ms. Hepburn as Holly as she appeared in the movie.

The inset photo on the bottom portion shows the mass produced version of the doll as it was 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

OH MY GOODNESS.

I really need to use this as a reference for a picture I'm drawing; the movie poster doesn't show NEARLY enough hair detail to be useful.

You always seem to get the actual essence of the person in your repaints. The befores are such poor copies, so obviously "doll-like." Your afters are like a miniature of the actual person. You get the inner light. Wonderful. :)

How absolutely gorgeous! Ever since I was a teeny little girl of about four or five, I wanted to be a real lady like Audrey Hepburn. Her refinement and grace were perfection in my little eyes. And you have captured all the "princess" qualities of her in this doll! I would love to see you do a 'Sabrina' doll as well. The dress would be amazing!
