Music legend Barbra Streisand holds the rare distinction of winning an Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony awards among numerous other awards. She is not only a musician but a distinguished actress, film producer, director and songwriter.

This one of a kind tribute doll replicates Brabra's appearance at the Cocoanut Grove in 1963. Faithful attention to make up and other facial nuances were essential to this custom face up

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to create a faithful replica of Barbra's features particularly inspired by her look from hte particular event.

The doll's hair has been also been reworked for accuracy and proper scale

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.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

Perfect Noel! You always make the eyes so warm! The hair desperately needed restyling. Mattel should really hire you as a consultant before they release another celebrity doll!

You need to edit the description. You ended up copy-pasting from your Cher doll for part of it.

The last two doll revisions had really good bases to begin with... Something I've observed.

this is awesome! like all of your work, she's totally accurate! it looks just like her! :)
i'm happy that these are like, dolls, though, not life-size figures. life-size or larger models of things (animals and people mostly) really freak me out (i dont know why!). like, for example, i adamantly refused to go into a madame tussaud's wax museum. i actually sat down on the ground when my sister tried to get me to come inside. yah, life-size fake things really freak me out.
sorry for the random story. basically, your dolls are awesome and i'm very happy that they're not life-size! :D
