1 Kendall Jenner
Cruz took a generic black-haired doll and totally reimagined her as celebrity Kendall Jenner. The new doll's make-up is so flawless, that Kendall herself would have to approve!
While the original doll was pretty impressive, it now looks cartoon-y next to Cruz's repaint of Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. Her eyebrows and lips are so perfectly painted, it's hard to imagine she's only twelve inches tall!
3 Sheldon Cooper
Big Bang Theory's most lovable control freak looks eerily lifelike with his new paint-job, down to the wrinkles around his eyes!
4 Audrey Hepburn
Cruz reimagined an Audrey Hepburn doll from Breakfast At Tiffany's into the glamorous Eliza Doolitlle from My Fair Lady. This redesign not only required a much more natural make-up repaint, but also a new wardrobe and hair styling. Can you imagine restyling two inches of doll hair?
Cruz perfectly captured the sheer creepiness of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named with his paint skills! The new version of the Dark Lord is veiny-er, with hauntingly realiztic eyes and newly sharpened teeth.
6 Marilyn Monroe
Cruz takes this blond bombshell doll to the next level by slightly redoing her iconic hairdo and adding lashes and perfect shadowing to her makeup look. Marilyn's new sultry stare is only improved by his meticulous depiction of the actress's full lips.
7 (Captain) Jack Sparrow
While we were already pretty surprised by the original Jack Sparrow doll's detail, Cruz's magic transforms this doll into a hyper-realistic Johnny Depp. With a new goatee and time-consuming attention to making the Captain's scruff as feathering an real as possible, we'll always remember this as the time Cruz totally captured Captain Jack Sparrow!
8 Ben Affleck's Batman
Working with little more than Affleck's exposed chin, Cruz turns the generic vigilante on the left into Batman vs Superman's gritty Caped Crusader. This erpaint also required repainting the doll's eyes and making his suit look darker and grittier.
Cruz totally nailed Queen Bee's gorgeous smile, and we can't believe how real the new doll's hair looks!
10 Harry Potter
The original doll on the left kind of looks like what would have happened if Daniel Radcliffe had been cast as Edward in the Twilight films. Cruz adds Harry's seventh-film five o'clock shadow and dulls his eyes into their famous blue-grey.
11 Princess Dianna
The original doll of the famous princess is a little too eighties, especially with those neon peepers. Cruz redressed the doll and captured Dianna's grace and winning smile, giving her more natural looking eyebrows, regal earrings, and a much more realistic (but still striking!) eye color.
12 Cate Blanchett's Evil Stepmother
Cate Blanchett's Lady Tremaine in the live action Cinderella film was graceful and wicked, and this redone doll is nothing short of elegantly evil. We think Cruz did an amazing job of representing Lady Tremaine's heartless smize.
13 Edward Cullen
The sparkly vamp himself, Cruz's new version of Edward Cullen's doll broods almost as well as his real-life counterpart. Some serious hair-sculpting went into this project, and we're relieved that the new Edward doesn't have pasty peach lips like he's a nineties pop star.
14 Wonder Woman
Cruz transformed this rubbery Wonder Woman into a glowing Gal Godot Wonder Woman. It's like we're staring at a movie poster. From removing the plastic hair and replacing it with loose curls, to the metallic repaint of the heroine's armor, Cruz has totally won us over with this Amazonian warrior.
15 Jennifer Lopez
Cruz's J-Lo creation looks ready for the Red Carpet. The new doll flaunts Jennifer Lopez's to-die-for cheekbones and nails her go-to champagne makeup look.
