Doll Starz

Wow!  More dolls have been added to the BC shop.  I am amazed at how fancy some of these dolls are.  Their sparkly and glittery dresses, the sky-high pumps, Barbie certainly is living the life of a Rock star.

Just in a few days ago are the  “Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie doll”  and the “Stephen Burrows Pazette Barbie doll”.  All dolls are pre-orders.   I will more than likely purchase the dolls, but I have to say the dolls are getting pricier and pricier every day.  The Blonds Blond Barbie is selling at $125.00 USD and the SB Pazette Barbie is going for $100.00 USD, both in the BC shop.  I have to wait until December to receive the Blonds Blond doll, and I am very anxious to see her, Phillipe and David Blond are world renowned designers, and of course I am not surprised to see Barbie doll adorned in the skimpiest of mini dresses encrusted with all the sparkly diamonds and a gorgeous full length fur (faux of course!) with a hot pink lining , they are known for that, amazing corsets as well.  They project a very glamorous rock star look.   Stephen Burrows was  the first african american designer to achieve international acclaim.  The Pazette Barbie seems to be wearing a mesh catsuit or body suit encrusted yet again with sparkly diamonds and silver pailettes.  Her see through vest also has a trim of glitter and fluffly boa trim, hmmm I am anxious to get her as well, I am sure the gems are all glued, for $100.00USD I would like to see a bit of sewn on crystals, but I will still get her!  LOL!   I find the Pazette doll reminds me very much of the “Cher, Bob Mackie turn back time 80’s doll”,  just saying.

Rush of Rose Gold Barbie 2012

Another barbie about to be released, “Rush of Rose Gold” Barbie doll by Robert Best.  She is a Platinum Label doll.   I am not sure if I am going to purchase her.  She has a lovely up-do, I am not loving the gold lame dress, I feel like I have seen this style over and over and over again.  I just feel like it’s not very original and Barbie should absolutely have originality, especially in fashion!  I do not feel the gloves were necessary,  (but I can take those off, heehee).  I think she would make a fantastic addition as my “Muse” for my handsewn doll gowns.  Love the dark nylons and the short booties, verrrry nice.   All in all, I do think she is okay and it is going to be Robert Best’s final doll  (4rth) in his Platinum Label collection inspired by precious metals.  Do not know her price yet, I am sure it will not be cheap.  So keep your eyes out for her, she goes on sale June 13, 2012.  Oooohhh lala!

UPDATE:  She is set to sell for $85.00 USD

All Things Pretty

This is a pretty lace gown I made for an 11.5″ doll.  Kind of a retro look, but definitely a classic!  I hope to add more pictures of my doll fashions.  Can you believe they sometimes take longer to make than an actual adult one!  LOL …  But I do love to make them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another style of gown I love creating is the “Marie-Antoinette” style gown.  Just love to make period gowns or medieval, so much fun!
