And home for another couple days and the realization struck me last night that after talking [livejournal.com profile] boosette there are giant amounts of Barbie things in my basement and I should raid them. Since Wooooooo they are free!



I did some preliminary poking (furniture! Oh god so much of it, I want it allllll)

Dolls am definitely taking back so far:
a bb! Tommy doll who is the spitting image of bb!Kirk.
This Becky Doll who is both bendy(though ugh the big flat feet that no shoes fit) and I love her face and Yes, she has a wheelchair and I will be attempting to find it for Pike.
Rosie because I feel I should hang onto her whereabouts as she is literally the only barbie with that body.
Yo-yo Courtney who I *loved* back in the day and is prime for becoming a Colt if I wanted or also a mini-me. Her face is so pretty in person.

I'm in search of This dolly because I want to steal her body for Number One and is the only bendy barbie of the time with pointed feet that will fit One's boots. Incidentally I have her guitar but I have not found *her* yet. EDIT: And now I have found her box doll still mia....

Am having terrible ideas about all the other dolls I could take and make into people(McCoy, Chapel, and Rand are pretty much natch if I want...), we shall see, I may take back an embarrassing amount by the time I'm done.

Are you also going to paint it so it's preeeeetty or leave it pink?

Also this lot may be relevant to your interests if you don't mind that they're not the bellybutton models; I have issues with the not-bellybutton proportions and sadly cannot bring those bendies home. Still. BENDY! (Because What You Need are obviously bodies to harvest for he heads on the non-bendy dolls.)

There is a giant pink four post bed with lacy curtains and if that makes it it will stay pink for the hilarity. I actually have a decent amount of non pink furniture which is exciting.

Oooohhhh *watches*. I am alright with the non belly buttons even though ohhh the newer proportions are much more acceptable. And yes, neeeeeed bendy bodies. I've found 2 so far but they both have the big flat fleet. I'm on the lookout actually for one of the last dolls I bought as a young thing actually because she was in the first round or so after they redid the proportions. I was SO excited to get her because of it.

The new proportions make me GLEE ALL OVER THE PLACE because, well. NO MOAR SKEWED BODY IMAGE YEY!

I cannot decide whether Bendy or Waist is more important to me. I think Waist is winning out, though.

For the most part I don't mind the not bendy because I really do like the proportion but Pike is Bendy and One is jealous and they don't interlock arms very well otherwise so I WANT HER BENDY. Though her tunic may need another round of adjusting once I swap...

The very best thing about the bendy is that you can pose them in naughty poses, truefacts.

Very trufax. Bendy bodies are made for such shenanigans.

Bendy bodies are what lured me to get a couple Pullips. SO MANY POSSIBLITIES.

I can attest to this! I *may* have to buy a 1:6 scale bed someday, JUST for the naughty photoshoot possibilities...

You need one. I will make your curtains for the diorama you are eventually going to wind up with, and also possibly a tiny tiny quilt.

I can make one--I just need a 14"x10" box, and a cushion to sue as a mattress. if I actually make it to Michael's on Saturday, I will look and see what they have...

I'm so worried that you will raid all the good Barbie furniture. There is so much, because I didn't care about the dolls as much as I cared about designing awesome houses with 80's pink and neon stuff everywhere.

I don't have too much room for furniture. if it makes you feel any better I'll try to stick to stuff that I know is mine. But yes, we do have and epic amount of good furniture. It's rather impressive.

also if I could? Would totally take my giant pink dollhouse with me.

I figure you won't steal my Stacey collection. And my furniture mostly looks like the furniture in the Golden Girls house, now that I think about it.

Is it room at your apartment that stops you? I mean, that pink dollhouse is awesome-remember when the brother got stuck inside it?

From: [identity profile] theoreticalpixy.livejournal.com
No, I won't steal your Stacys. Yes, we had different set of stuff mostly.

It is heaps of awesome I will not lie. I'm still amazed that he made it inside in the first place. But between convincing the parents to let me take it and that it would have to live in my not-large bedroom I should probably not. I would like to be able to take boys into my bedroom without them thinking I'm insane.

Use it as a bookshelf, and say you're storing it for someone. Or that you're a nanny.

Or don't let boys into your room (puts on hypocrite hat)

You're tempting me. You're mean.

hypocriteeeeee. I haven't dated in ages, I deserve boys in my room.

I am now in the basement staring at it and I want it. You are a terrible influence. NOw I have to figure out how feasible this is...

I know what car you're taking back to MN, and I firmly believe you can fit the house in there.

I don't know if I should encourage you anymore. Perhaps discuss it with your roommate?

I *can* but *should* I?

Roommate owes me after being a drama llama tlike hell his past week and it'd be away from common areas. She supports my star trek dolls already I'm sure she can deal with a dollhouse.

Also, was there ever a bendy Ken? If not, how will you make Pike?

I knew this. Partly because I text'd [livejournal.com profile] jurisenpai that I wanted to buy a Barbie today, and she told me it was okay only if it was a Star Trek Barbie.

It was not, it was the redhead (#7) and the blonde with the short cut (#9) in the Barbie Basics collection: http://www.barbiecollector.com/BarbieBasics/2/

I stared at the shelf with longing. Then I paid for new contacts instead of buying a Barbie. BEING AN ADULT BLOWS.

ngl I want #3 her face is awesome. And the one with short blonde hair is adorable. I hate that they're 20$ a piece. I'd get a bunch otherwise. Barbies are way cuter nowadays.

YES IT DOES.

The redhead was way redder in the store. There's also a brunette with short hair that I really liked. But what would I do with it? My McCoy action figure is too short to seduce it!

She gets a pass then on the basis of being a redhead. She doesn't look very red in the pic which is lame. You get it large McCoy! Clearly.
