Sneak peeks at Barbie Convention…
Posted by helen on July 22, 2012
Not many dolls were presented by Mattel at the 2012 Barbie Convention, here are what I saw in Sales room:
Bob Mackie’s Banana girl (KT reported these 2 pictures were stolen by an eBay seller for his auctions!! what a shame! should you buy from someone who is so dishonest? )
her price will be $125 or around. I am so over with Showgirls, and very tired of Bob Mackie’s “crossover” straped gown (can you call it a gown?): gold barbie, timeless cher, golden legacy, radiant redhead, etc etc… so no more this type of costumes.
Perhaps I would have loved it if this Banana girl were made:
okay, next up, Mr. Bill Greening’s Ghost, dont you agree her costumes are very standard. her eye makeup is not very “ghosty”, I am guessing black hair, black lip color may be more sellable.
if the ghost is for Halloween, “holiday hostess” is for Christmas & new year, Also by Bill Greening. if her price is more than $85, she will be a slow seller. its better they put her between $55 and $ 65 price range. but no doubt she will be more than that.
one more holiday doll:
Fur-n-Fuchsia by Robert Best
Kitty Corner by Robert Best
you saw this Gala Gown Before, she is $150, her gown has lots embelishments, but it actually is an easy piece — a strapless gown plus a bunch of higgledy piggledy ruffles and organza flowers. the walking suit & afternoon suit require more skills & works to make.
Passport to pink, this is a covention doll desgined by Bill Greening, you can buy her from eBay later,
here is Mr. Robert Best promoting this doll, that’s very nice of him, isnt it?
I think instead of opening another thread, I’ll just add a couple of photos of the official covention doll here, its not a part of mattel’s doll but Mattel made the production.
“Barbie is etneral” designed by Magia 2000,
many are not impressed by the simplicity of the gown, I am one of them. it seems plain & shapeless, looks very much like my bedroom window curtains, someone said its more like folded napkins, whatever, I just want to thank god the doll lips look normal, they usually put these darker nearly black colors in the center of the mouth, which I truly HATE, like this one: ‘ , darker paint between the lips to make the mouth look like open, a retarded look. so at least they did not do this to the convention doll, or maybe they did, but Mattel did not approve.
haha, I bet some people out there aint happy with my comments.
