3.0 imagination, life is your creation

Dear Barbie clothes,
Sorry I neglected posting you. It's just that, well, I had pictures of me. And, you know how I love much myself.
You know you love me,
Lexy Girl
(You know? Like Gossip Girl? But with my name? LOLZ? No? WELL THEN DON'T BE A BYSTANDER. I need a cool name that's filled with alliterations. Suggestions? Don't say Loser Lexy. That will reduce me to tears. TEARS I TELL YA.)

Had fun making this one. Primarily because I haven't got the slightest clue as to how one would construct triangular shoulder pads in non-miniature form (i.e. real life.) If you have any suggestions, please call the toll free number at the bottom of your screen (or, you know, comment.)

This is "Gaga" barbie. Because she's got a mad poker face that will get you trapped in a bad romance where you'll just dance and everything will be okay. rah rah rah oh la la la laaaaa.

I spy with my little eye... visible pins on Barbie in order to amp her "fierceness." My sister and I basically treat plastic toys better than we treat our pet animal (dog) (which my uncle recently called a "glorified cat." He's a weirdo.)

Barbie's wearing homemade clothes by me, homeskillet. home dawg. home bro.

This is the last of them Barbie series. I'd like to reiterate that these were sewn for my LITTLE COUSIN. I'm a good person! A nice cousin! Not a freak with way too much time on my hands to spend it sewing Barbie clothes PSSSSHHHHHHHT.

See you later, alligator!
Walk a mile, crocodile!
Not too soon, baboon!
Okee dokee, artichoke!
(Anyone interested in continuing this flirtation dialogue regarding our farewells? Quite frankly, I think you should add a line like "You're the best, Lexy" and I'll go "Yes, I know. Heehee." (Hypothetical example, obviously does not reflect my own views. OBVIOUSLY.))

LyddieGal said...

you are such a talented seamstress, and creative designer. Your cousin is one lucky girl.

you'd better hope she doesn't have any friends like me. when i was little i would steal barbie clothes from my friends.
wicked, i know.
but i was super jealous. I just had barbie clothes knitted by my grandma.

I LOVE that outfit. That jacket is incredible, you are wayyyy talented.

Haha, thanks! Glad you like my house. That lady clad in pink is actually a part of a collection of ladies. There's an artist, aerobics instructor, teacher, dancer, shopper...plus more, can't remember now. And their all chubby. My parents bought them last year for me. That particular toy in on the tree in my room.

I cant believe you made that yourself. It looks awesome. When I was little I tried making clothes for my dolls but they didn't exactly turn out well. . . And just for an early Christmas present: Your the best, Lexy. :D

Cafe Fashionista said...

Is it weird that I want to be that Barbie because she has a slamming wardrobe? Love it! :)

Marloes said...

You know, I was planning on telling you how much I adore your barbie series and this outfit (-> THE JACKET) is extremely good. But... just before I clicked the comments button I saw the label: "i think i'm awesome so shut up". Seriously...



you're "tha bomb".

And that is a very 90's phrase. But I think you can handle that... :)

As always, I love your photos.

Rand T said...
