***********************************************


These two dolls are inspired by two of my favorite movie characters - Miranda Priestly as portrayed by Meryl Streep and Andrea Sachs as played by Anne Hathaway from the film "The Devil Wears Prada".

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of the characters and the subtle nuances of lifelike expressions.

The inset photos on the bottom portion show the mass produced version of the dolls as they were 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

Love them both, although the Anne Hathaway doll looks more like Paget Brewster (imo, anyway :) ). Meryl is absolutely gorgeous, and they both look incredibly realistic! (When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought they were either digital paintings or photo touch-ups. :) ) Amazing job, *noeling and congratulations on a well-deserved DD!

I'm not one for dolls, never have been, but these are BEAUTIFUL. I keep seeing repainted dolls on the front page from other people, which honestly look a lot worse than the originals in my opinion, but these look 100% better than the originals. ^.^
