I am completely and utterly amazed by these dolls.. Not just these, but look at his website. Looking at all his OOAK dolls is like looking at a photo. Go look, tell me what you think!

"Whew...finally - got both of 'em done. Turned out a bit more challenging than I thought. This is just a preview shot. They'll both be on ebay hopefully tomorrow or Thursday.The dolls used are 15 1/2 inch and 17 1/2 inch Bella and Edward dolls by Robert Tonner. Fulll facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson from Twilight.The inset photos on the upper left hand corner show the mass produced version of the Edward Cullen and Bella Swan doll as they were originally released.Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with the Tonner Doll company "

The Edward Cullen Doll was sold on ebay for $2,950.00.
The Bella Swan Doll was sold on
ebay for $2,388.98.

  5. Be sure to have your SHSH blobs backed up utilising
    the TinyUmbrella app. Getting to the top of the blacklist is not
    easy. The appliance type has to be dually filled-up from the customer.
