Sometimes You Just Want To Have Some Fun ...

As much as I enjoy my Fashion Royalty dolls, sometimes I just want to get out one of my Barbies and go crazy redressing and playing!  I was in Walmart this week to return something and just "accidentally" wandered by the Barbie aisle.

There she was … Fashionista #10 using the Kayla/Lea mold.  And she was all of $7.95.  You know where this doll wound up, right?  As if I needed another play line doll!?   Of course I did.  Especially this one.

I knew that the dress would probably get donated to a Misaki or Poppy.  Let's face it, a $7.95 doll AND a new wardrobe item for my other dolls.  It's really a no-brainer.  I was talking to a friend about some things, and we were on the Clear Lan website at the same time.  She found a denim dress that she really loved.  Since I already had it and a new doll - voila!  (She is borrowing  a Star Dollz body for this photo.)
This doll began making me think of someone.  Was it Happy Quinn from the television series Scorpion?  Played by the actress Jadyn Wong?   Of course it was!

So for a dreary, rainy day, I had a lot of playtime!  I hope all of you are getting some fun in this season!

I feel the same way. I only have a few FR dolls but have several collector type Barbies but I find myself drawn to the new Fashionistas line. This is a really good year for Mattel...I think. :)

Me too! 2014 and 2015 have been a great year to get new faces for Barbie. I know it has also been a record buying time for me! What with joining W Club and all the lovely new faces and skin tones for Barbie, my collection has really grown. Oh, I still have some complaints -- the lack of articulation and the glue heads are my biggest issues with Mattel, but the new Fashionistas even made Oprah's top list, and that has to be a good thing for Mattel. And it also appears that with the Made to Move bodies, the new articulated MM bodies and the announcement of the new poseable bodies for the Fashion Collector line, Mattel appears to at least be listening! Can't wait to see what else comes in 2016! I love the way you have redressed Lea - I am so happy they brought her face back!

It's amazing that an $8 Barbie can look so amazing! :)
