Mattel Merida my repaint orginal comparison by kamarza Mattel Merida my repaint orginal comparison by kamarza
So I couldn't resist and I decided to repaint my Mattel Merida Doll :). She arrived yesterday and OMG it was so fun to repaint her. Can't wait for my Disney Store Meride :).
I also redone her hair to look more messy :).

I don't know if I captured character well but anyway she will stay like this for a while :)

I'd like to invite you to my new group.
It's for non-standard dolls (Barbie/Monster High repaints, Obitsu, non-resin hujoo). Don't worry, it's not recast friendly. If you're interested I'd love to have you :3

My only suggest would be to maybe line the eyes a little more. other than that, bravo!

Mattel didn't even try, did they? Yours is so much better, and she looks so much more lively than a regular Disney princess.

I remove orginal factory makeup with nail polish remover and repaint it again with hand, using brush and watercolors. I sealed new makeup, and stilize her hair to finish.

You did a great job repainting her. I especially love the freckles! What did you do to get her hair so big and curly? I mean, the origianal doll's hair is not curly, no matter how they try to make it so, so how did you do it??

I think they make dolls to look more attractive than the actual character so that little girls will want to buy them. I mean, if you look at Merida, she doesn't exactly have the typical bambi eyes with the long eyelashes.. she's got a rather larger and more plump face and tiny eyes and messy hair... which isn't really what little girls always want to buy.

I like the redone version, though I will say, maybe if the eyes were a tad bit larger, and the brows a bit darker, she'd look completely accurate.
But all in all, amazing job! :D

I actually have the Disney doll, not the Mattel doll, but her hair could be a lot more wild :C

My DS Merida came today. Well I 'm going to redone her hair too.

You have to brush them carefuly but not whole hair just parts.

It's a beautiful repaint, she seems so much more natural.. Yet I'm afraid her eyes are just a tad too small, too much apart and to wide opened, looks almost like she would be scared, but smiling at the same time.
