1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Chemo Barbie reconstruction? on: March 06, 2006 03:35:15 PM
Howdy!  I want to venture into a new area of craft, and I could use some input.

A friend of mine is undergoing chemo, and I want to make her a Wonder Woman doll with a shaved head and just one breast.  Accessories would include a tiny bottle of pills, a chemo cap, and a little phone she can use to call her friends for support.  Plus some as-yet-to-be determined cancer-fighting weapon.  I'm open to suggestion on other accessories, of course!

So the question is this:  Have you ever reconstructed a Barbie?  I thought I'd snag a beat-up one from a used toy store near here and do a dry run before tackling a good doll.  I'm not that worried about the head shaving, but I'm a little leery of the Barbie mascectomy.  I thought maybe I could cut it, then melt it together and try to draw a tattoo on it or something.  What I'd use to melt plastic, I don't know.  Would epoxy work better?  A friend of a friend had a suggestion, but said it would work if the doll was solid as opposed to hollow, which Barbie-type dolls are.

Any wonderful brainstorms on this project?
