Happy the First day of Summer

Posted by helen on June 21, 2018

Welcome to Summer 2018.

Summer is my least favorite season. but it could be Barbie’s favorite.

I bought a half dozen Repro dolls, because they are super cheap. its hard to believe there are still so many NRFB 1990s Repro dolls on eBay and the prices are unbeatably low. the old Barbie becomes new Barbie’s competitor.

Happy Summer

the Venezuela Dress

Posted by helen on June 9, 2018

Venezuela dress was a part of Dior 1957 Fall Collection.

Barbie adopted this timeless style to attend High Tea.  The High Tea doll was released long before I started collecting Barbie dolls. her price on eBay is high above my budget

l really like the dress. but a Ruched dress takes extra time & efforts to make.   I overcame my laziness and finally made it today — High Tea is a part of the upcoming Barbie Convention theme, that’s why I’m motivated.

I chose Black & Blue geometric prints,  Barbie has too many pink.  its time to bring in other colors and prints.

I think I’ll make one in Burgundy, too.

The Return of the Elegance & Grace:

Barbie Signature Vs. Amazon Amateur

Posted by helen on June 6, 2018

Barbie signature proudly announced the new arrival of   —Midnight Glamor, (Barbie’s webpage only works with IE browser, you will see blank page if you use Firefox or other browsers)

Price? $100.
she is just in time to catch the “Me Too” movement on the  Red Carpet

Mattel probably bought the black gown from one of these humble Amazon Amateurs

Price? $3.00 each or 6 for $10.

so you know where to look, but Barbie doesn’t .

I suppose she could have gone through Robert Best’s old sketch book and picked out something like this one? something that eBay & Amazon do not have?

It’s June!

Posted by helen on June 1, 2018

Half a year is gone,
Hello, June,
Surprise me!

I chose Vintage “Fashion Editor” as my  Calendar Girl,  Barbie really needs better Editors & designers to rescue her from The Salvation Army!!

(below is Mattel’s promotion)

perhaps you remember that I made it in red:
