: She's one of two dolls I got out of my
: father's house before my sister gave
: everything to charity without telling me. As
: a child I liked her so much that I had an
: elaborate dream about her. In the dream she
: was my mother... it didn't seem weird in the
: dream. She was my favorite Barbie. Her face
: shows how much play she got but she is still
: loved :-).
: She's wearing a vintage cheerleader outfit.
: I think it had an M on the front originally.
: Her rubber legs have a strong rubber smell
: so I can't keep her body in the house. She's
: on a Barbie Style blonde body. The neck on
: her old body didn't have a rounded neck so
: her head doesn't sit well.
: The earring stains on her face are fading
: with time. The girdle (that you can barely
: see) hanging on the fence is made from
: elastic & it has thin elastic for the
: garters with snaps sewn on to hold up the
: stockings. (I don't think it's Mattel.) Very
: creative. Her original legs are stained from
: the snaps though. Plastic snaps are
: available now.
: Possibly the first thing I made for Barbie
: when I was a child was a satin gown for this
: one. I cut a circle of fabric & then cut
: holes for the head & arms. Then I
: gathered the fabric at the waist &
: proceeded to cut the hem. I was surprised
: how hard it was to cut & figured it was
: normal for such a big wad of fabric. Er...
: look at the toes on her original body. She
: wore socks with her severed toes in them for
: years & at some point I took them off
: & they're long gone.
: PS, that's a furry knapsack covering the
: doll nudity & the pom pom is from
: Monster High Spectra.
