I made this entirely from trash.  
- Her body is a frusion bottle [liquid yogurt stuff]... i spray painted it with special spray paint made just for plastics by Krylon.  
- The arms and legs were misc. Barbie parts.  
- I colored her eyes and hair with sharpie markers and added an old jewelry stud as an eyebrow ring.  
- I finished it off by making a tube from some old fishnets of mine and putting it on the outside of the bottle.
- Her intended use is a paperweight, she could be filled with something like nuts and bolts to make her heavier.

So cool & not to be rude but, Are you sure this belongs here? I figured it probably would go in something like the Housewares or Misc. Crafts.

  It seems to work fine here considering she's made from trash such as a frusion bottle and old fishnets.  Meanwhile, so cool and inspiring!  I love barbies, especially the ones that are a bit odd like the fairy ones and collectibles.  Must make her~!

thanks honorbaby  Grin  Personally, it was my slight disdain for barbieness that inspired me to make one that was a little less "perfect" but whatever floats ur boat..
I'd love to see your take on her..might be cool to see one that was turned into a fairy.. with attached wings that are made from old pantyhose or something
