Curvy Barbie, at Last

Barbie Fashionista #27: Sweetheart Stripes (one of the curvy dolls) came home with me today.


The stands I use for Barbie dolls don't work that well for her due to her ample glutes.



Her face is beautiful and the hair color really stands out nicely.


I decided to splurge and buy an extra outfit, in hopes that it would fit her.


It almost does. It was hard to get over her curvy hips.


It does not close all the way up in the back. I was hoping the dress was of a stretchy fabric...


She does look lovely in it, though.


If you have a curvy Barbie doll, please let me know what outfits you have tried on her that fit.

Madame Alexander Travel Friends

Hola decided it was time to leave her box today.



She has an adorable face and a nice outfit.



Unfortunately, when I tried to bend one of her legs, it snapped right off. 
I'm glad I didn't try too hard to bend her arms...


Poor girl.

My Living Room Mess

My living room is a mess. The doll room is being painted next week, so everything that was in it (well, almost everything) is strewn across the living room.






Boxes of dolls.


Dutch Ginny is hiding in the liqueur hutch.


At least one Girls' Day set is out. (The large set is in the attic.)


Clothes, accessories, playsets, and more.





A few dolls are elsewhere in the house, but this is most of them. They look so crowded. I look forward to a clean, painted doll room filled with new shelves.

Cha - Cha - Changes

One of my Fashionista Barbies is trying on a new outfit.


I think it is a pretty cute look on her.

Sit in Style Barbie

The painters are coming next week to paint the doll room, so the next couple of days I have to empty it out. Ugh. So, I am taking a break for a fun fashion shoot.


This is Sit In Style Barbie from 1999.


She came with the inflatable chair, stickers to decorate the chair and her outfit, and a matching keychain.


I was tickled by the gimmick and loved her long hair. So she joined my doll family when I first saw her at the store.

Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman

I unboxed Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman today.



 

Her outfit is not removable, but that is OK with me. She will be on display with my other super hero dolls and action figures.


She has a thigh gripping stand that works well.


Her accessories include a sword, shield, and her magic lasso of truth.





She is a lovely doll with great articulation. She is a wonderful addition to my collection.

A Red and Pink Valentine

It is that time of year again.


February 14th is just around the corner and some of my dolls got all dolled up (LOL) in red and pink for a festive St. Valentine's Day photo.


Jill is sporting polka dots.


Ginny is sweet in pink.


Hayden wears brighter pink.


And Barbie sparkles in red.
