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.
