Doll Repaint - Elvira by noeling Doll Repaint - Elvira by noeling

Halloween is just around the corner and I thought what better way to kick it off with a custom repaint of the gruesomely seductive queen of macabre, Elvira - Mistress of the Dark.

This doll underwent hair restyling to better replicate Elvira's. As with all my custom repainted dolls, I remove the original factory makeup. I then repaint the character's features paying attention to precision and accuracy as well as true to life facial expression.

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

Holy!!! What was the original doll?? Was that an Elvira doll too?? That's shameful... although, it probably looked a lot better without your masterpiece beside it!!
=D=D=D
Very awesome.. I thought (in the thumb.) that that left side was a photo ref.

I have been an Elvira fan for decades.
I can't believe what you have done. So fantastic I can't put words to it.
Absolutely love what your make-over has done. It looks so real....
