Title: Barbie met the Hugh Hefner of the Barbie world...
Post by: thekatt on June 01, 2006 09:04:13 AM
*disclaimer* this is not an authentic Barbie doll, nor is it in anyway affiliated with the Mattel corporation.

This is my first challenge post, so be gentle.  :)

This was thrown together about seven hours ago when my mind was like: "OMG? I CAN DO THIS?" without remembering that there probably were much better things made a couple of weeks ago already. So bear with it.

I had the typical blonde faux 88 cent cheapass barbie that I had left over from a history project (that doll can be seen in one of the pictures)

Total items used:
Barbie doll
Matchsticks
Macaroni
Pipe Cleaners
Spaghetti
Rotellini (whatever the curly pasta is)
Pompoms
Yarn
Craft foam
Hot glue


So here's the story. Barbie was tired of being America's favorite toy of little girls for however many years. Knowing that her plastic body was kickin' and way better than some of the other twentysomethings she had seen on the cover of Playboy, she decided to call up Hugh again to maybe return back to her old career that she had had before becoming America's sweetheart. She had lately been having to bribe the tabloids to keep the story off their pages "BARBIE PLAYBOY SCANDAL!"
She said "screw it, I don't need this anymore. I have my money." and forever left the world of dolls.

These pictures were shot by the paparazzi a few weeks later in Hugh's mansion.


See, he has these panthers, that don't really like visitors.

Her adoring fans sometimes break in and play (cannibal barbie (from my history project) is on the left)

But Hugh also has authentic obese siamese mix cat rides.

Barbie had a bit too much liquor this night, and fell over, throwing up a few seconds later.
This image... might not be considered work safe, if they're the crazy types of people that think that barbies and gnomes hugh hefner don't belong together.

And this one is here because I remembered that her pasta handbags weren't showing well enough, but there's already enough images, so here's a link: http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g291/zomfgkatt/100_7676.jpg (http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g291/zomfgkatt/100_7676.jpg)

The black stuff on her back is just my name. (wouldn't want anyone to claim that they made an awesome slutty barbie that I made!)  She also has a small tattoo on her leg that she had previously covered up for her dol career since parents object to that sort of stuff nowadays.

Someone should take away my hot glue gun after midnight.

Barbie is very brave to pat that big black panther on the inside of it's mouth. Go Barbie.

I did a project on a court case involving cannibalism on the high seas, and needed a visual aid, so I made a shipwrecked barbie that had gone insane and was munching on her crewmate's foot. I also brought in gingerbread cookies, but no one understood just why they were eating gingerbread people while I gave a speech on cannibalism. *sigh*

Thanks for the compliments, everyone.

Wow, I love the creative presentation of the Playboy Barbie scandal...Great job!  Her pompoms are mesmerizing.

And OMG, I just have to say, I have an obese Siamese mix cat as well!  And a black cat (they're actually brothers, but they don't look alike).  And the obese one has similar colors to yours, you know, like he's a Siamese that's been put in a blender, with his colors all in the wrong places.  Does yours have blue eyes too?

I...I love you.

Hee hee. That is wonderful. I really like the cannibal barbie too. My first project post ever on here was a bunch of dolls I did some damage to.

What a wonderful idea. And hilarious. Good job.
