What a great replication and addition to your collection Bethany.
Over the summer, I participated in an “online doll sale” that featured items at great prices from sellers who might have otherwise taken their merchandise to the national convention in Las Vegas. Among the items offered for sale was this OOAK Barbie as Lt. Uhura (the lovely and incomparable Nichelle Nichols) from the classic Star Trek episode “Mirror, Mirror.” Using Pop Life Christie’s head and wearing a custom outfit, she really does capture the attitude of Uhura at the beginning of that episode. All I need is a custom Sulu Ken to complete the scenes on the front of the box.
The only question I have is who created this doll because the seller didn’t know. To me, the look and feel of the doll, as well as the box she came in (and the fact that its from the classic Trek world), says that Uhura is the creation of our very own Kate from ME and her Frog Fountain Designs. Kate, I don’t know if you’re here today, but if you are, could you please let me know if this lady is your creation? Either way, I love her.
