These dolls were formerly failed replicas of celebrities until Noel Cruz, a Filipino artist who is based in California, repaints them. He not only improves the makeup and facial contours, but also the skin tone, hair color and accessories. So intricately detailed that they look naturally lifelike! A perfect miniature reproduction of its wax figure, or better?
His dolls are sold to collectors and are auctioned in Ebay. See more of his works from his website: http://www.ncruz.com and from his Deviant Art page http://noeling.deviantart.com
