I just read that French shoe designer Christian Louboutin has had enough of Barbie’s cankles (ankles that blend into calves). Apparently, the designer has taken it upon himself to give Barbie an ankle lift and skinnier legs for the shoes he’s designing for her. “He found her ankles were too fat,” his spokesperson told Women’s Wear Daily.
Excuse me? If Barbie were a real woman, her body would be nonfunctioning, it’s so out of realistic proportion. According to iVillage.com, her feet would be a size 3, her bra size would be a 39FF and her measurements 39-21-33. She would stand 8 feet 9 inches tall. Her neck would be twice the length of a normal woman’s and would be so skinny, she’d have to choose between an esophagus and a trachea. The likelihood of a real woman having Barbie’s bod is less than one in 100,000.
I know, she’s just a doll. But for most little girls, Barbie is the first woman’s body they really get to analyze, besides their mothers’. Little girls (and little boys) are fascina…
First of all let me just say; WELCOME TO THE WORLD ASIAN KEN YOU WILL BE LOVED BY MANY DOLL LOVERS ALL OVER!
Now let’s get back to the topic; after so many years an Asian male doll by MATTEL is finally here! In all honesty the more I see this doll the more I'm saving every penny to buy him. This is also a new face mold, he is not using any left overs from Ken and that is a very good sign. The doll is part of Dolls of the World: Japan and he is also bringing a friend. Yes Lea is coming with Ken also; both dolls are due just in time for Christmas. Ken comes in a traditional Japanese patterned-fabric with contemporary styled clothing and a samurai-inspired sword. Yes a sword, I really can see him and Takeo taking down the bad guys! Now this was the good part and I’m going to explain the bad part!
Why oh why did he have to be a damn samurai? I understand its part Dolls of the World but Asian Ken could have been put in the Barbie Basic line easily! Was it so hard to make Asian Ken blend …
Every now and then I will post videos from YouTube from doll collectors who are better in making music videos than me. This video is from Tiglem who collects Pullip dolls and is very creative in making videos of them!
Now that you watch the video, what do you think? Notice that there are some Barbie dolls in the video. I watch this video over 2 years ago and the images always stayed in my mind. Why do you think Barbie or even Ken was in the video? Here are the reasons why I think these dolls showed up; both Barbie and Ken are the ideal beautiful couple! They are perfection at its best, both blondes with pretty blue eyes, perfect bodies with the perfect teeth! As doll collectors we always fell into the beauty of a unique doll because she is just so damn beautiful! Maybe to Non-doll collectors Barbie or Ken are everything a person what to be!
We have become a society that is obsessed with being alluring, we think and know if we looked like Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, and/or Jessica Alba we will be loved and adore by others. These women I mention are not just famous based on talent alone, they’re what you call sexy, hot, and beautiful! They h…
In both Barbie Basic 1 and 2.0 lines Model 4 has the Goddess face mold. The Goddess face mold has been use many times over the years for dolls of the world such as Sumatra-Indonesia, Princess of the Korean Court and Princess of the Pacific Islands. You also can find the Goddess in play-line dolls as well, Princess Edeline from The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Gillian from Fashion Fever and Pop Star Vitamin C! In Basic Black Goddess makes her entrance with short curly black hair and dark luxury chocolate skin, with a killer V open back short dress! Model 4 became one of the most popular dolls in the Barbie Basic line and it will be only fair to bring her back for more! But now that Model 4 is back, she is not black! Now in Barbie Basic 2.0 Model 4 has long read hair, lighter skin and is wearing a grey singlet top with black skinny jeans. Don’t get me wrong I love the way Model 4 looks, she reminds of The Twelve Dancing Princesses Edeline. I was kind of surprise to see Model 4 this time a…
With the new Barbie Basics 2.0 coming out, I think its time to see which dolls hopped on the basic line and who got a totally make over. In this Basic theme it’s all about the Jeans! Let’s start with the newbie’s: First the guys: Model 15 has Edward Cullen face mold, Model 16 is Kurt from a past fashion fever line. I was never able to get my hands on Kurt so I really can not wait to have this doll! Model 17 is Jacob who has been modified into a sexy African American! Christian Louboutin Barbie steps in as Model 14! I’m all for the new boys but, Model 14 I will have to leave alone because I can not find one thing I like about her! The male models are a nice touch to the Basic line and I hope to see more in the future! Now let’s focus on some of the changes of past Basic girls! Model 1 which is Barbie who is rocking nice curls, Model 2 went short, and Model 3 is an afro blonde. Model 5 is letting her hair down with bangs! Model 7 is still red but with some of her hair up, Model 8 went s…
