Barbie Dancing with the Stars Paso Doble - W3319

One of the beauties that I brought from my trip to USA is this "Dancing with the Stars Paso Doble Barbie Doll" (W3319). Unfortunately it's a little cross-eyed, but I will fix it when I feel more secure with the repaints.

She is wearing our white body and our pink faux-leather skirt. I love her articulated body and her hair

My Barbie collection - Color No.2

When I started collecting Barbies, almost three years ago, I bought them without judgment. But over time I have become more selective: now I prefer to have few and special than a lot and mediocre.

Right now I have 39 not-Silkstone Barbies, 10 Silkstone Barbies and 2 Poppy Parkers. For me it's very important that my not-Silkstone Barbies have articulated bodies (but not MTM bodies, I don't like them...), so I have classified them by colors to take these photos. This way I will tell you which bodies do well to each group of color.

The whitest barbie I have is "Fan Binding" (BCP97) and I still have not got an articulated body for her 😭 So I start with the next skin tone, which I'll call No. 2. It's a very common color, so there are two pictures. You can use any of the bodies I will quote with any of these dolls:


From left to right:

1.- Barbie Fashionistas - Party Glam Doll 4 (CJY43): I repainted her eyes in blue. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The T-shirt and bib are from Clear-Lan.

2.- The Barbie Look - City Chic Style (DYX63): She wears her own body, but I don't like at all her knees. The dress and the shirt are from Clear-Lan. The socks are from Alliexpress.

3.- Natalia Vodianova Barbie Doll (CHX13): She wears "Andy Warhol Barbie Doll" (DKN04) body. I love this body  The turtleneck sweater and the shirt are from our Etsy shop.

4.- Model No. 05 - Collection 002 (T7739): She wears "The Barbie Look Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect" (DGY08) body. The dress is from Mattel.

5.- Andy Warhol Barbie Doll" (DKN04). I deleted the blue eyeshadow and repainted her lips. She wears her own body. The t-shirt is from Clear-Lan and the shirt from Mattel.


From left to right:

1.- The Barbie Look Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect: I took off her bangs and I repainted her eyes, her lips, and painted some freckles. She wears her own body. The dress is from our shop (out of stock now).

2.- France Barbie Doll (X8420): She wears "The Barbie Look™ Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect" (DGY08) body. The dress is from SquishTish.

3.- "Tokidoki Barbie Doll" (CMV57) with Sara repaint and Gema reroot. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The t-shirt and the skirt are from our Etsy shop.

4.- Princess of Ancient Greece Barbie Doll (B3461) with reroot. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The color of the head is a little bit yellowish, so it's not identical to the color of the body, but it's very similar. Moreover I don't think there is an articulated body with that same yelowish color. The t-shirt, the skirt and the jacket are from Clear-Lan.

5.- Princess of China Barbie Doll (3368) with Gema reroot. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The t-shirt is from Clear-Lan and the shirt from Mattel. She wears "The Barbie Look Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect" (DGY08) body. The dress is from YokoDolls. The shoes are from Alliexpress.

City shopper Barbie doll X8257


This beauty is the "City shopper" Barbie (X8257). She's really cool. Though I usually loose the hair of all my dolls, I like very much her ponytail so I think she will keep it.

She is wearing our mustard gabardineour mustard skirt and our pink body.








I hope you like her as much as I do.

In the next weeks I will show you some of my new girls. I bought a lot of Barbies when I was in Orlando last September 😀 There are much more assortment and best prices in the USA than in Spain so I bought a lot of them online (both in Amazon.com and Mattel) to be sent to my hotel. This is me when I arrived at the hotel and pick them all 😂 It was like Christmas time for me!

Diorama 1:6 doll


As you may know, we are two people in B&I: Charo is the one who sews the clothes and I am the one who make the photos. We have been receiving a lot of orders lately and Charo feels she needs to take a break to rest. So our Etsy shop is now on vacation until January 2018. But I will go on sharing photos with you 😊 In this one you can see my new furniture (shelving and mirror) from Marcia Harrys  The tulle skirt is from our Etsy shop and the t-shirt (in pink!) will be available in our Etsy shop when we re-open it. I bought the purse in Aliexpress. The plants are from FashionDollStore.

1/6 diorama

I'm not totally happy with the position of Poppy's feet... it's a little bit difficult to pose this doll with her loose joints and I didn't notice about her feet until it was too late 😌 But I still like the photo and hope that you will too.

By the way, she is "Mayhem In Monte Carlo" Poppy Parker rerooted. I have dyed her hair with Rit dye powder (golden yellow + tan bronce + a little bit of petal pink) because I found the original color too light for her dark skin. I prefer it this way, I think it's more natural. The only trouble I found dying her hair was that the hair's orifices took a dark color (I guess the dye got "caught" in them) but I removed it with alcohol and a needle.

OOAK Barbie

 
August is a quiet month here in Spain, so I took advantage to do many things for my dolls 😊 I made this wood wainscot following the great tutorial of Bonequea. And I painted this thick foam core board on both sides: one in grey (the one I used in these photos) and one in pale blue. The "marble ground" is a printable that you can free download here.


The girls in the previous photo are "Look Cocktail Chic (DGY09)" with MTM body and "Tokidoki (CMV57)" with repaint, reroot and a Look body.


The repaint was made by Sara from "My dolls, My world" and I couldn't love her more. She is stunningly beautiful And Sara was such a wonderful person ♥ ♥ 

The reroot was made by Gema Trenado. Gema was so nice with me: the doll has been repainted before rerooted, and she took care of not damaging her make-up.

You can find the tulle skirts in our Etsy shop, in 8 colors to choose. And you cand find the t-shirts also in our Etsy shop.
