Diva, Gone Platinum: 2001

This is the doll that hooked me on white marabou for added glow in photos. To this point I’d seen and photographed a lot of marabou that comes with the dolls, but always in different colors. And always annoying, frankly, for reasons I won’t go into here, but definitely have plans to do an entire…

Pink evening gown by designer Badgley Mischka: 2006

As with many higher quality doll clothes, the exquisite and delicate attention to detail of this gown simply can’t be appreciated via thumbnail photos of it in a box behind a plastic window. I had to see this dress for myself. I was considering it for one of the standard-sized dolls I’m using as a…

Barbie dressed as George Washington

I like this one for a lot of reasons, which I will add later when I have more time to reflect and focus my thoughts! Do not conceive that fine Clothes make fine Men, any more than fine feathers make fine Birds — A plain genteel dress is more admired and obtains more credit than…

Gobs of Disney princess dresses!

There are so many! Some I can identify, but most not. I will identify and caption those I know later. I can tell you that I steam ironed all of these. Ironing Barbie dresses is not easy, let me tell you! Giant iron. Teeny fabric. Yes, I’ve toasted more than a few through the learning process….

Dolls of the World: English Riding Barbie

I love the tailored jacket over gaucho pants! I kind of ignored this one until I realized what I thought was a skirt is actually gaucho style pants. The jacket pairs nicely with other separates too, which adds to the versatility of this particular doll’s clothes and accessories. And the hat! It is a faux…
