Posted on September 26, 2008
Star Magazine reports that the Angelina Jolie doll above was sold on eBay for over $3,000. Star says artist Noel Cruz took a regular doll and then repainted it to look like Angelina Jolie.
The only thing missing on the doll are Angelina's trademark tattoos but those would have taken Cruz a lot more time to recreate. Angelina Jolie is not the only celebrity the creative Noel Cruz has turned into a doll. He has also made Annie Lenox, Daniel Craig and Keira Knightley dolls. You can see some of the other dolls here on his website.Inspired by the "enigmatic beauty" of the Chianti-drinking Brad Pitt's partner, Noel Cruz took an ordinary doll and transformed it to look like the superstar mother of six. For his efforts, he earned $3,350 by hawking it to a private bidder on eBay.
The Filipino artist removed the factory paint and repainted the doll using acrylics, expertly applying perfect makeup, a manicure and pedicure. The doll was also fitted with a wig and given a red-carpet dress, which cost extra.
