Man Repaints Catching Fire Katniss Barbie So It Looks Exactly Like Jennifer Lawrence

Real Or Not Real?

We posted the spectacular Noel Cruz’s work before. He has a knack for turning what are terribly disappointing depictions of actors’ doll counterparts and creating what could almost be a mirror image. His latest masterpiece? Jennifer Lawerence’s Katniss Everdeen. Check out a few more shots and find out how you can own it after the jump.

For this The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Barbie, Cruz said, “The sculpt is absolutely spot on which helped greatly in this transformation.” And to be fair, as far as actor Barbies go, I’d say this one wasn’t so bad, but it pales in comparison to his finished work.

The doll normally retails for around $24.95 but Cruz’s altered version is currently selling on ebay for $510. Also, can we talk about how he also cut down her GINORMOUS braid to be more realistic as well? Because that’s something I remarked upon, how the scale was absolutely ridiculous, when I first saw the doll.
