Somewhere in the U.S., one artist has taken upon himself to beautify, ugly, unrealistic action figures and dolls, turning them into desirable collectibles. Meanwhile, somewhere in Europe, one Ukrainian artist is doing the opposite. Olga Kamenetskaya believes that dolls are unrealistic in representing the body proportion and beauty of a real person and thus, she set out to water down the dolls’ beauty. Not sure if she is doing anything to the body shape though, but I guess, as far as body shape goes, it has been taken care by Lammily. In fact, Lammily does a brilliant job in presenting a doll with a look that won’t mislead our young ones with unrealistic beauty.

I am not going to lie. I am a little out of touch with Barbie dolls. I never knew Barbie is not only diverse, but it also has pop culture covered too. I though the Star Trek Barbie dolls were one-off thing. Apparently, I was wrong. Barbie dolls have a bunch of others, including Wonder Woman, Doctor Who Thirteenth Doctor, Catwoman, Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen and now, even our favorite alien investigators, Mulder and Scully have gotten the Barbie Dolls treatment. Continue reading Oh, Look! X-Files’ Mulder and Scully Gets The Barbie Doll Treatment!
Kids play with dolls, doing things like dolling them up, do their hair, making them go to date with Ken and whatnot. Those things are absolutely normal. What is NOT normal is this: taking out organs from inside the dolls. Wait, what? Is that for real??? Well, almost. It didn’t materialized, but these bizarre take of dolls was an attempt by a mom in UK who thought it was a brilliant idea to give dolls internal organs, in hope that kids can learn about human anatomy.

You know is it with stock action figures and dolls. They hardly resembles the person they took after. I don’t want to question why manufacturers of these expensive collectibles can’t get the facial features right. But hey, that’s probably a good thing because it leaves a void for exceedingly talented repaint artist like Philippine-born, US-based Noel Cruz a chance to unleash his talents and thus doing justice to the celebrities who the action figures/dolls took the image. How else would you turn ugly Emma Watson doll from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast into like what she supposed to be right? The works of Noel Cruz need no advertisement. The results speak for themselves. Continue reading Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures
