I know that a lot of you Barbie collectors love the Fashion Fever series of dolls and outfits as much as I do. We’ve had a lot of fun over the past couple of years presenting the various dolls and clothing that I own. There is a lot more out there that I don’t have and may never have as it is getting a bit pricey on eBay now. That’s OK. What I wanted to talk about was the fact that while I’ve come across a lot of books and websites that are very helpful in identifying dolls and fashions from the vintage and mod era’s similar resources for Fashion Fever seem rather scarce in comparison.
Does anyone know of any books that deal specifically with the 2004-2007 dolls and fashions? Do you have favourite websites you go to? If you look on Flickr and Pinterest you can find lots of photos but I guess what I’m looking for is a guide to every doll and outfit released, what year and what accessories there should be etc. More or less like I have been doing myself in the Fashion Fever Closet series.
So my questions are:
- Does a resource like this exist?
- If it doesn’t would there be interest in it?
- Are Naomi and I going to have to write it ourselves?
Let’s have a discussion.
