NOTE: These dolls are not available for purchase.
If you have ever searched through ebay for Marilyn Monroe dolls, you will have noticed the abundance of "custom" dolls. These are normally Marilyn dolls that the artist has re-painted and re-dressed. You will usually see OOAK advertised which means "One of a Kind". I was never impressed with a custom doll until
the I saw the work of Kim Goodwin. So I decided to showcase his dolls here with
his permission because I am such a fan of his work.
When these dolls first appeared for sale on Ebay in 2002 the Marilyn community took notice. The bidding was fierce and most dolls went for upwards of $700 US!! The prices have only increased since then as the value of these dolls continue to climb. Now, you may wonder what is so special about a doll that people would be willing to pay that kind of money for them? Well, once you browse through the gallery of Kim Goodwin's work you will understand. Not only are these dolls painstaking hand created to a remarkable resemblence of Marilyn but the costumes are all EXACT duplicates of the originals that she actually wore. There are no other dolls in existence that capture Marilyn's likeness the way Kim does.
