We have a TON of old barbie dolls still sitting in our basement, so one night when I grew sick of trying to fix a mouth on one of my puppets, I pulled out my paint and a barbie and got to work!
I've made two (another has become an experimental one to test things on). One has a music theme, the other... I'd like to say uniqueness.
The first shot are their heads, but the next are shots of their 'naked' backs and legs, etc, and I'm not sure if those could be constituted as NSFW, so I figured I'd warn you about that. Smiley.

The music one isn't sealed yet, so she photographed a little easier. The purple one has glitter and is modge podged over already, so I appologize for the diffaculty in reading her. She has ways I thought you could be unique all over her body, such as: 'Be joyous', 'believe in inner-beauty', and 'smile.'

Back shots. The quote on the music doll is from William Shakespeare: 'If music be the food of love; play on.'

Their legs. Time sigures are around the music barbie's ankles

Body shots Smiley

I'm hoping this is the best place to put these, as they're not exactly meant to be played with, but are dolls all the same...
Thanks for looking!

I really like them, their eyes look cool painted over.  I would love to see more Barbie art.

I never thought about painting barbies.  These look really neat.
