Some people might say that dolls are kids' toys and nothing more. But incredible artists creating lifelike dolls can change the minds of the harshest critics.

Noel Cruz is one of those people. The Filipino artist, currently working in the USA, repaints regular cute dolls making them into real one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

He has transformed many simple dolls giving them realistic faces of famous people and characters. Noel's repainted dolls are done with intricate detail to the point of being naturally lifelike in essence. These realistic dolls are sold as collectors' items and are wildly popular.

Take a look at some of the "before-after" doll repaint images and be amazed by the talent of Noel Cruz.

Errr.. the hair is different on the right "doll". I've got serious doubts that this is what it says it is.

One thing is 100% certain. Streep did not, does not and never will look like this 😂

The sidelook could have been left intact in here. Has more personality.

Kate Middleton is stunning! But, she kind of looks creep in both... Maybe they just can't capture her beauty?

Every time I see the "1st" doll of her, I think I would be offended by it if I were her!

OK, that's a tough one to nail! Since all that's visible is his chin. This is why, while he's a great batman...his disguise sucks. You can clearly see it's Affleck behind that coil!!!

In the first one, her face shape is more her but the 2nd one has more details, esp. the eyes.

He's def got Watson down. The face shape isn't as good as the Belle doll...but the paint is beautiful.

I don't think the first one was supposed to be her.I think it is just some miscellaneous doll that was repurposed to look like her.
