Yet another Cher-inspired creation. This year's custom Cher repaint is based upon her look in her latest film "Burlesque". The base doll used was Mattel's 11 1/2 inch "If I Could Turn Back Time" Cher doll.

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to create a faithful replica of Cher's features particularly inspired by her look in her 1980s music video "If I Could Turn Back Time".

The doll's hair has been also been meticulosuly reworked with heat straightening, cut and style. I also delicatley paint enhanced the hair line for added realism.

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

Cher is my moms most favorite singer and after I showed her this she could hardly believe that this was only a doll.

This is just stunning! You've captured Cher's beauty in the most impeccable way. The doll looks nearly identical to her true form. I'm sure you're very busy but, we would all LOVE to see a Christina Aguilera counterpart to this.
