Barbie for big girls.

Worth The Wait

Patience is indeed a virtue.  It is a  virtue I don’t happen to have a clear grasp of most days.  When I send a doll off for repainting, I want it back like yesterday.  I like to send a doll off to a repaint artist and give general likes or dislikes but I don’t give specifics about what I want done.  I usually like to leave it in the talented and capable hands of the artist and I get what I get.  I sent a few ladies off to Jon Copeland of SeloJDesigns a number of months ago and while the wait to get them back was longer than he or I would have liked….it was entirely worth it.  I received three sublimely unique and beautifully painted OOAK’s that I am completely in love with.    I will be photographing and showing them over the next couple of weeks.  They are treasures…each and every one.

I am also going through a a bit of a wedding kick ( you know…the whole June thing) so a few brides will be thrown in the mix as well.  My bride fetish and one of my new OOAK’s from Jon combined in the doll room this afternoon for a truly enjoyable photoshoot .  I had roughly 30 minutes of sunshine today to do this set of photos.  I believe I maximized the time well Smile

  3. Her hair is stunning! Checked out his Facebook page. Why doesn’t Mattel paint their Barbies more lifelike? And the hair is to die for! I don’t know why Barbies have such full unruly heads of hair in so many cases. He is indeed talented! Looking forward to seeing more photos. Thanks Rebecca and Jon too.

  4. Oh, coincidentally I changed my Facebook Icon to a screaming Barbie earlier today. Came across it in my files while sorting thru Lightroom catalog. Turns out I used it 2 yrs ago when I was redesigning my WordPress layout. I’m totally revamping my photo site again. Something I do at least once a yr, as technology improves. Turns me into a screaming Barbie at times. Worth the result. I could use a paint over when I’m done. Full body too. Hair of course!

  10. I HIGHLY recommend Jon’s repaints, he is such a talented artist and has been for over 10+ years in the doll industry and I for one can say this because I know him. As a doll artist myself (metal mesh designs for dolls) Jon is so articulate in his style of painting. If you really want a great repaint, Jon is the go-to for this and the wait is well worth it.
