Realistic Movie Character Dolls
Noel Cruz Repaints Generic Barbies to Resemble Life-Like Actors

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jan 9, 13

No matter how long a person peruses a toy store, a doll based on a movie character will often look as generic as the next; yet artist Noel Cruz shows that this doesn’t have to be the case. Noel Cruz repaints the common doll to create realistic depictions of such iconic characters. An art form in and of itself, repainting takes portraiture to a whole other level.

Born in the Philippines and based in California, Noel Cruz embodies the dolls with telltale features of the actors and actresses he has undertaken to depict. From Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in ‘Twilight’ to Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle in ‘My Fair Lady,’ Noel Cruz manages to get the details down to the moody stare and bedazzled dress.
