Repaint Doll - Joan Crawford by noeling Repaint Doll - Joan Crawford by noeling
In August 1999 I had the pleasure of attending the Hollywood Ahoy doll convention aboard the Queen Mary ship in Long Beach, California. During this three-day event a special tribute was given to the legendary Joan Crawford, wherein her grandson and heir apparent Casey Lalonde held a special screening of Joan Crawford's home movie which had never been publicly shown.

In the home video, we see Joan as she really was - freckled face, playful and carefree. She also wore a blue and white sunsuit, which Robert Tonner replicated exclusively for this doll convention. Please see the doll's ebay auction to view a freeze frame image of Joan that inspired this repaint.

Younger Joan did not have the thick eyebrows she did in her later films. And the less said about "Mommie Dearest", the better. If that's all you know of her, it's your loss.

Wow that looks so cool. You make the skin look beautiful and realistic.

(I was almost expecting her to have a wirehanger accessory but that's cause I'm a dork)
