I've seen ooak My Little Ponies, Barbies, Bratz, and lots of other dolls but has anyone seen a site with My-Size Barbies? I'm thinking of customizing mine and would love to see others.
Any help?

I haven't seen any, but then I'm pretty new to this whole dolls and toys thing. Cheesy
I bet if you search google you could find some....

Here's a site with a bunch of links about OOAK dolls:

http://www.dolldivas.net/dolldivas-addressbook2.html

Here is one on eBay that sold (but they still have pics up):

http://item.express.ebay.com/OOAK-My-Size-Barbie-STORMY-Repaint-By-Rosie_W0QQitemZ150247595490QQihZ005QQcmdZExpressItem

Oh, and here is a site that specializes in them:

http://www.barbieville.com/

I love the one in the black sparkly dress, and a bit further down the Cher one is freakin' AWESOME (although she is not "my size"...lol, that sounded funny Cheesy).

Pretty cool stuff...I would love to see what you make if you do this!! ^_^

At the bottom's a link to Gracie (formerly a non-movie Rapnuzel) and Casey (first year MSB)'s web page on my site. They both got dye jobs, and brunette Gracie even got her eye color altered. We bought Doll Shop Deluxe so I'd have tons of patterns to sew for them, but DSD is expensive ! Then again, buying the sole Simplicity pattern I know of for them, #8817, can run $40. and up !

I really need to retake every photo on that  page with our new camera, so I'll just add that to the Never Ending List of Stuff ta Do...done. It's on the list now.

As a preview, here's Gracie in a photo not on the site. It's a DSD pattern I sewed using a wrecked women's dress from a yard sale. Glad to find another MSB fan !

Are their heads vinyl like a normal sized Barbie? Or hard plastic?
If they're vinyl, you can remove the head the same way as a small doll: dunk her head under hot (not boiling!) water and apply a gentle but firm pressure to pop it off.
I've looked for tutorials specifically for My-Size with no luck. :\
