This was about a year ago, but my friend was visiting from out of town, and we decided to attack barbie dolls!! First, with much amusement we wiped the pink lipstick and baby blue eyes of the plastic thing. We did this with nail polish remover, if memory serves me correctly. Then we used the thinnest brushes i could find and painted faces on them again! I no my doll is not very creative, and actually looks (somewhat) like an original. I'm sure people with more creative minds would do wonderful stuff with great precision. Then, we found a pair of my old tights (man i loved them!) and took some string and needles and sewed dresses right on em! Later I also made a marilyn monroe type top (from the famous blowing-up-from grate-thingy pose) later on (around december?) They are masterpieces I know (starts to cough) but i just thought I could post em and other people would try similar techniques! I bet people would do wicked stuff paint on barbie's face!  Well here ya go, the pics!
this I did after my friend left. Sorry its sorta blurry  here's a full shot of the doll I did! Yes the face. I could lsit a lot of things that need fixing... And the Marilyn Monroe top.
I know, a thirteen year old with barbie dolls. Mainly they sit at the bottom of my closet in a box. I should donate them, but i'm a pack rat. I can't bare to part with something holding so many memories.

I'm only sixteen but I kick myself constantly for giving away my barbies and their stuff. I love little things.

I have one barbie. My aunt gave it to me (I'm still seven, to my family) and it has a stand and I make clothes for her.

My (ex...)best friend has her barbies still and we cut their hair and mutilated them. It's fun...

Don't give them up! You WILL regret it.

LOL! i forgot to add, the doll that i painted the face, i did the hair. It was all sad and tangled, but now it's slightly better. The problem for me is I hate hand stitching and i don't have a sewing machine. That is a problem when doing crafts.

You did a great job on Barbie's clothes, I can't see the face very well, but I too fix their hair when it's tangled and bad........I curled a barbies hair to look like Marilyn and then knit the famous white dress for her, I'll post a picture when I have a chance.  Cool
