I used to do this when I was little, but I didn't make them look like me. I would color Barbie's hair with magic markers and give some of them mohawks and pixie cuts. I used to make them clothes out of scraps of fabric that my mother bought me at Walmart, too. I love this idea, I would so be in.

This is a GREAT idea. Maybe not neccessarily making it look like yourself, but altering it.

This is an awesome idea! I'd definately be in for altering a Barbie.

I LOVE this idea!  This is one challenge I would actually do!  I definatly think we should go with making it look like yourself, not just altering.

I love this idea!!!!!!!!!! I like the idea of making it look like ourselves too, although barbies are tall and skinny where most people aren't.

Fun idea!  I'd even go for something that was just a Barbie clothing challenge.  When I was younger my sis and I once made a couple dozen outfits for our Barbies out of old socks!!  It was soo much fun.  Somewhere back at my parents house there's a picture of us proudly displaying them.  I'd really like to get my hands on that...

I like the sound of this!  Perhaps it could be a Barbie clothing challenge...but everyone has to use something other than fabric or yarn to create the outfit.  Just my 2 cents.

Or, maybe everyone had to have a cohersive theme: so they had to have zombie Barbie rather than sort of fancy looking Barbie.

I disagree with both suggestions. We just had a no-yarn challenge, so I think doing basically two in a row is overkill. Also, I don't want to make a zombie Barbie. :-P I want mine to be pretty. Besides, this is one of those things that can be interpreted creatively, which is why I liked the idea in the first place.

Well, you know a theme rather tht "fancy-sort-of-maybe-she's-going-to-the-prom-or-maybe-the-Oscars Barbie"

Well maybe with Halloween coming up, we could incorporate that into the doll make-over. Perhaps Barbie in homemade Halloween costumes?? *I hate to keep saying 'Barbie'...I just mean any doll that size* My original idea was a 'make-her-look-like-yourself' doll...but I like the other ideas submitted about  specific themes too. I think this is something easy that many people could do and the possibilities are endless! I hope the moderator of this challenge picks this idea..or a variation of it. Or is this something we get to vote on? I have never participated in a craft challenge here, but if we get to vote for what the next challenge is...this is what I would want to do!
