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

Amazing repaint! I strongly believe that Tonner Doll Company should hire you to paint the dolls!

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.

My good sir, you are amazing. I've been looking through your repaints for the past half-hour, and every single one of them is beautiful. You've captured their respective actors' features and presence to a T.

Please keep doing what you do!

Good lord!!! Your skill and talent are unbelievably excellent!!! I love the way you have with your "Little People". Little PEOPLE is very correct. Before hand the dolls you start with really are just dolls, though quite nice ones. But afterward they really come to life and look more like the living embodiment of the particular actors or characters.
