Happy Barbie Convention, too!
Posted by helen on July 1, 2015
As the Barbie convention fast approaching, I am getting anxiety attack, I have done nothing for the convention, I found the theme uninspiring. its hard for me to do things I am not interested in. when I was at our club meeting last month, a few friends told me they have canceled their Convention registrations after seeing the convention doll “spotlight on Broadway”, but they are still going to the convention to do “Room Sales” –Aren’t they smart? Making money instead of spending money
June was an uneventful month for my dolls. I did not buy a single doll even there were some great sales, I managed to stay away from them…
Hope July will be more productive than June.

Its the beginning of Summer
I tired to get a jump on Spring-cleaning, the plan fell short. Now Summer has begun, it makes me feel nervous. There are tons of things I should have done 3 months ago, I just didn’t and don’t want to do anything. Summer would bring more laziness out of me.
Summer is great for Kids! “Come out and play!” .
Although today is “Father’s Day”, I doubt I have any Dads who visit this blog, so the words “Happy Father’s Day” can be muted here.
Have a fun-filled Summer Season!

okay, this is the last day of a week with Lara. its Sunday, she should have wore “Sunday Best”, but I decided to let her go Casual.
Barbie Basics –first Wave
The dress has the word “Sunday” on it, so its perfect for today
Birthday Wishes 2005
I m posting this b/c the next BFC exclusive “Homecoming Queen” also wears a Ruffled Dress
I think Christabelle is my favorite Lara. I can never photograph her as beautiful as she is:

Top Models: Teresa
“Top Models” were released as playline dolls, but the doll qualities are so much better than today’s “Barbie Collector” (or “Barbie Collections”) Dolls. Top Models come with lots of accessories: shoe boxes, hangers, hats, purses, extra shoes, cover-ups, hair brushes, hair extensions, etc… the Price was $19.99.
See how Pretty her face is

This doll’s price was down to $10 at a TRU store near me. that’s the reason I bought her.
Apparently I Like Green, Blue more than Pink.
adding a bit of pink:

Perhaps Lara is a natural blonde, but she has a “Total Dye Job” done :
she could use some jewelry & hair accessories, I just didn’t bother—lets presume she is getting a custom-designed gown, this is her first fit, that’s why she doesn’t have any accessories. :)

Best Model, South Beach.
she is not really camera-ready, her hair needs a little touch-up, worse than that, I don’t have any suitable clothes for her at this moment. She is a very pretty Lara. Sadly, the photos look strange, my camera is not functioning well after I dropped it on the hardwood floor. I have trouble to turn it on & off, lens cover stuck… time to buy a new camera…
I was making a set of “Bouclé Beauty” Replica for my “Evening Gown” AA Silkstone Doll, but failed to complete the Jacket. The Beach Girl was fine to wear them without the jacket:

Lara was introduced to the market as one of Barbie’s friends from the “Generation Girl” line back in 1999.
Lara isn’t the most popular face, she is probably on many collectors “least Favorite Face Mold” list.
I never treated Lara fair enough to buy as many as I did to Lea or Goddess. Recently my love for her grows a little bit. I’ll pay 7-day tribute to Lara, whose friendship has enriched Barbie’s life forever, she is also an accomplished model in her own right.
First up is Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Barbie® Doll, I purchased her at A J Wright. (The store has closed)
Actually, she isn’t exactly what she was, I added a little personal touch to make her “Mine”
