Fall Festival

Posted by helen on September 28, 2014

Thanks to our  Chamber of Commerce, there are always fun events in the neighborhood. Today “Fall Festival” took place. Barbie & Ken Joined us…

The Couple received  a lot of compliments. “she is chic, he is gorgeous…”  My neighbors are very Fashionable & knowledgeable,  “Is he Karl Lagerfeld?” 2 laidies asked.  they got it right!

I purchased the “choupette” miniature Cat at last year’s street fair,  I was trying to find another today. but I didnt have the luck! then,  I felt someone was calling me from behind “hello, hello”, I turned back,  a lady ran to me, she wanted to take a close look at my dolls. she  is also a Barbie Collector and told me how her coworkers threw her a “Barbie themed” Birthday Party, she was happy like a little child! lol   –I have said many times that Travel dolls are “conversation starters”.  Whenever I bring my dolls with me, someone will strike up a conversation. The Last time when I was at Farley Post Office , a police offier saw my doll and said “My sister is a Barbie Collector”.

okay, some photos:

Barbie & Ken Leaving their “Dreamhouse” for the Fall Festival

Believe or not, this Ken doll can stand alone without a  stand, you just need to balance him a little bit. of course, make sure he wears flat shoes.

Ken had a bad hair day, the wind blew up his hair like crazy.

our neighborhood is very peaceful, although its quite populated.

Lots people on the street, you are never alone.

once I traveled to a small city and walked alone on a street in its downtown area,   I walked down about 10 blocks and didnt see a single soul on the street, I got  nervous, it was very unusual for me.  I am so used to seeing big crowds around me.

Barbie probably loves Crowds, Ken maybe hates them.  just  look the expressions on his face:

Shopping for SunGlasses

New York & Company (I have some cheap shirts bear its label)

Barbie probably wont buy a dress from Street Vendors. but we never know:

Barbie: “Check out Sephora?”

Ken:  “No!”

“Come on, just one quick look!”

“Ann Taylor loft” –it used to be a Disney Store,  but its gone,  thanks that Ann taylor Moved in. I do not like to see more “Space for Rent” signs.

I like Ann Taylor

Time to go home:

Home Again

Weekend Project: Ken Lagerfeld

Posted by helen on September 28, 2014

They are Ken & Choupette Lagerfeld.
Choupette (the Cat) will have its own collection “Monster Choupette Capsule Collection”, coming to you in Nov, 2014.

Ken, in my opinion, is better-looking than  Uncle Karl Lagerfeld, –wish Barbie agrees.

It’s a unfinished project, I probably will never be able to finish it. His hair is only rerooted around the hairine, I can no longer find patience to go on,  the ite is too short,  not long enough to tie a pretty knot,   the shirt has no sleeves,  (absolutely need install them),  he also needs a pair of socks…. these are just too much for me right now

he is just good enough to have a few photos taken.  we hope Barbie is impressed .oh, well, it always takes more work than I think to create the whole look. .
