The first time I read the challenge I read "Barbie" and thought, "how am I going to make her fat?"
I live in Las Vegas and thought, "I know, I'll make a Vegas Barbie!"
Looking at it now, I guess this isn't what the challenge was, but I thought I'd share anyway!
Let me know what you think!

She was a "California Barbie" who left the sandy beaches for the excitement of Sin City!

So whats with everyone using Barbie dolls (not everyone but a lot of people). Thats kinda cheap, this one is the only one with a lot of work put into it. Still I think using Barbies takes away half the fun.

As I wrote earlier, I thought it was part of the challenge to use a Barbie. Had I read more carefully I would have probably crocheted one.

Alls I know is I used GI Joe, completely different gender from Barbie, although it's just smooth plastic parts so you really don't know or do you?   And I love Vegas Barbie, I want to see her in Showgirls 2: Plastic Pasties!
