Robyn and Friend Go To The Movies


On my visit to the Barbie Aisle at Big W I was pretty disappointed in the dolls on offer as I mentioned in my previous post. I ended up buying a pair of Barbie outfits that I thought were passable though and when I got home I deboxed them for a couple of the girls to model.

Although this set has the obligatory pink clothing I thought there was enough variety for me to be able to use the pieces. It is not as big a set as the old Fashion Fever closets. Here are all the pieces including accessories.

Here they are out of the box.

Today’s models are Robyn, my rescued Fashion Fever girl and my recently bought and as yet unnamed Fashionista. Any suggestions for names for this curly-haired girl will be appreciated as I now have so many Barbies that I have trouble remembering their names myself. If I was their mother I’d be running off fifty plus names trying to remember the right one. 🙂

Here is our curly-haired model wearing the jeans and top. I quite like these although she will be a tad chilly in a Tasmanian winter in them. Luckily yesterday was a sunny day.

Robyn is wearing the more dressy outfit of skirt and top. I thought this top was a little strange, I hope I put it on her the way it was meant to go. The bling is made of plastic and is easy to put on and the shoes have a slit in the back. I like this idea as I have as much trouble putting on Barbie shoes as any small child and have broken straps trying to do it and lost others when they have gone flying out of my hand or fallen off the doll when I’ve moved her.

Off to the movies.

Here are the girls off to the movies. They have their tickets and popcorn but I hope the theatre doesn’t have a strict dress code because they have only one pair of shoes between them. I thought that was a bit cheap of Mattel as the pink ones don’t really go with the jeans and striped top. A black pair would have been nice.

  1. Great jeans. And, yes. They should have included a more casual-looking black shoe with the jeans. You got the lighting especially nice in the last shot of the girls going off to the movies.

    • I had a few pieces of vinyl left over after making my doll display unit so made a cube and lined it with some packaging material that came with something I bought. As it was sunny on Satruday afternoon I carried it into the kitchen which gets a lot of afternoon sun and did the photos there. I had to experiment with camera settings but got it right in the end then just a little bit of cropping on the computer.

  2. Those are cute outfits! I would have loved to have had something like this back when I had my Barbies. We lived far away from stores so I really never got to shop for clothes and my poor girls had a very limited wardrobe!

    • When I was a child we mostly had generic brand clothes for our dolls, a genuine Sindy or Barbie outfit was usually a birthday present or something you saved up for if you could go to a shop that had them. We also had home made outfits. I still have a couple of very basic ones that mum made when we were too young to be fussy. They had armoles and necks trimmed with blanket stitch and the dresses are like tents but we had dolls clothes so we were happy.

      • I made a skirt for my Barbies. It wasn’t very cute though so I usually made my least favorite Barbie, the Farrah Fawcett Barbie, wear it. 🙂

    Square jaw Teresa will always be my favourite face, but I do like the curly blonde’s sculpt, she’s usually dark. Ah! I’m trying to give up Barbies

  4. Now those are nice outfits for a change. Shame a lot ot our stores have dolls, but little to nothing in fashions. It would’nt have hurt to put a second pair of shoes in the package though. Love the popcorn box.
