I deboxed the blue repro In the Swim (from the expensive Ft. Lauderdale Barbie Convention)! I had the vintage pink and orange versions but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for the blue. Besides I'm not getting any younger and as the song For All We Know says, "tomorrow was made for some, tomorrow may never come" ...Notice the vintage hats are really STRAW. The repro (blue) is plastic. #intheswimbarbie#intheswim#vintagebarbie#reproductionclothes#barbieswimsuits#barbiehats
Animal Lovin' Barbie is in great condition new in her box. Clearly a doll that came out in the 80s by her headband, outfit & big curly hair. I personally love the pink leopard print ensemble & the gold top is a nice touch too. Interesting enough her earrings are actually in the shape of a heart with a giraffe in the center. One of the most beautiful face molds too. I also must say the packaging on this doll is beautiful. Without a doubt Mattel was at their prime with the box designs. 🐘🐘🐘
Happy Thursday! Animal Lovin' Barbie is the feature of the day. She was released in 1988. She comes with a cute little panda bear to care for & love. There is also a Nikki & Ken in this collection. The Ken doll is quite well known as he is the Ken doll used in the film Toy Story 3 🦁🦁🦁
Greenear CAN return! Like a bad rash. All the platinum swirl ponytails on ebay (in my price range) had greenear when I was shopping for one. I found this one (the seller told me she had been treated for greenear AFTER I bought her. This was years and years ago) and thought he had done the hard work because I hate treating greenear! Anyway, I've heard from collectors it can return and it has. I am not going to treat it again. I often wonder if people who treat greenear on vintage Barbies don't thoroughly clean the inside of the head and run a soaked needle and thread through the ear piercing with CLR, or whatever substance that they're using. #vintagebarbie#greenear#treatinggreenear#greenearbarbies#swirlponytailbarbie#swirl
Cotton candy pink, vintage barbie realness 💖 Wearing the @glamour_bunny_clothing hot pink capri suit 💘💗💖 .
Real talk: I was going to wear this half wig on stage for the Miss Viva Las Vegas finals but I ended up questioning myself, overly and anxiously worrying about being ‘perfect’ and thinking it was too scruffy on the bottom so I redid my whole hair look. This was in between having several anxious/nervous breakdowns where I was basically sobbing in our hotel room as soon as I woke up due to nerves and the overwhelming hugeness of what that day and contest meant to me. I’d thought I’d share this lil’ tidbit to share that what you see on the surface, with all its primp, polish and posture isn’t always what’s going on behind closed doors or on the inside 💖💖 Stay wonderful beauties xxx .
#vintagebarbie ken reflock, it was my first time doing this and I must say it’s harder than it looks! I have the before and after pics, just swipe left ☺️ I took off his old flocking with acetone and accidentally wiped off half his eyebrow! #shithappens 😖 but after a few hours, several coats of flocking, realising you got the wrong glue 🤨#kendoll is now looking quite #jamesbond and very dashing 😍 I’m very happy with how he came out despite the setbacks !!!
