This doll was a commissioned project for a customer who is a huge Lady Gaga fan.
The doll I used is a 17-inch resin ball jointed Sybarite doll produced by Superdoll. The base doll I used is not a representation of any celebrity or character, but I thought the mold was close enough to create a Lady Gaga repaint.
Full facial repaint, completely precision hand repainted featuring three dimensional repaint/shading/highlighting on eyes, eyebrows, and lips to faithfully transform the doll into the likeness of Lady Gaga, inspired by her many looks.
The wig she wears has been hand restyled and hand dyed yellow by myself.
The inset photo on the bottom shows the mass produced version as 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
