Custom Doll Repaint- RUPAUL by noeling Custom Doll Repaint- RUPAUL by noeling

Rupaul makes a mark in the celebrity world as the first supermodel drag queen after signing a contract with MAC make up and cosmetics. He is also an actor as well as singer-song writer.

Currently, he appears on TV as the host of his own show called "RuPaul's Drag Race".

This doll began its life as a 13-inch mass produced RuPaul doll produced by Jason Wu and Integrity Toys.

I first carefully study RuPaul's photos to get a grasp on his/her facial features as well as her distinct MAC make up look. Next, as I always do, I completely remove factory facial painting and proceed to carefully and meticulously repaint RuPaul paying careful attention to accuracy and detail.

The doll's hair has been also been completely reworked to reflect Rupaul's hair style from his Revolution publicity shot wearing the outfit that inspired the doll's costume.

The inset photo on the bottom middle 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

(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with the Integrity Toys and Jason Wu)

This repaint is fantastic! You really captured Ru's look so much better than the original design. I would have never guessed that that doll was supposed to represent Rupaul, but I knew who your repaint was right away!
Absolutely FANTASTIC job!

Check my site for the doll pictures. Once you do, you know that when I say that you are the master, I MEAN IT! This work, and the others on your link are perfect. Next time I shoot dolls, I will go to you for a repaint. Money is no object.
