The Marilyn Monroe community was shocked and stunned at the untimely passing of truly one of the greatest Monroe sculptors of all time, Kim Goodwin.

Primarily a very talented and successful make up artist, Goodwin was also a legend among the Monroe fandom for his exquisite work on creating the most beautiful one of a kind Marilyn Monroe dolls the world has ever seen. No other sculptor has ever come close to creating a true likeness of Monroe as Kim did and his attention to detail was second to none. The “Marilyn Remembered” Facebook group has seen an overwhelming outpouring of love and respect for this wonderful man.

You will forever be missed Kim. Thankyou for all you have given us.

Kim Goodwin gave fellow Monroe fan Melinda Mason permission to display photographs of his dolls on her website “Marilyn Geek.” Many Marilyn fans first became aware of his work through her website, so out of respect for Kim and Melinda, we would highly recommend you check out her website and feast your eyes on a whole gallery of gorgeous creations.

To whet your appetite, here is our very own Lorraine Nicol’s personal Kim Goodwin doll:
