The beloved characters from the film franchise, currently starring in the fifth and final big screen installment Breaking Dawn — Part 2, have been transformed into doll form.
“[The fans] are really going to go after it and bid and go crazy with the bidding,” Cruz recently told The Daily Buzz, adding that some of his creations have sold for thousands of dollars.
When it comes to deciding what dolls to make, Cruz said it really depends on the celebrity and what people are looking for.
“But Edward and Bella — the Twilight characters are so hot.”
Cruz, who has an art background, said he got into the celebrity doll making business partly because of his wife.
“When my wife started collecting [dolls] and searching for them on the Internet, one day it dawned on me that these were repainted dolls . . . the shading and the way they were painted was very detailed and very realistic,” he said.
“So I thought, hey, maybe I can use this as a canvas instead of a flat piece of paper.”
His doll collection, available for purchase on eBay and his own website, includes items for collectors of any age. But they must know one thing:
“It’s not something to play with like a regular Barbie doll,” Cruz said.
