Ms. Barbara by marywinkler Ms. Barbara by marywinkler
In homage to Mattel's timeless beauty Barbara Millicent Roberts and her influence over my love of bottle blondes and pinkness.

Rock on, Barbie.

Canvas print done in a series of three stretched over frames? I'm kind of feelin' it.

it's awesome to see someone not slamming barbie for once. she was created to fulfill an ideal that already existed; she didn't create it herself like people accuse her of doing.
i love the hot pink against the platinum blonde. beautiful contrast, and i love how loose and comfortable the lines are. rock on, indeed.~

I've always loved Barbie and have never understood why such a fabulous and campy hunk of plastic has stirred up fo rmuch controversy -- especially when the claim is made that she sets unreachable standards. She's plastic. Of course she does. She's not flesh. hahaha. Talk about a reality check.
Good thing we love her :D Poor girl...

Not to mention the many careers Barbie has had. She's been a teacher, a doctor, a police officer, an astronaut... Isn't that a good influence over little girls? I certainly think so. :nod:

Oy, so many damsels in distress... (not all of them, but A SIZABLE AMOUNT)

...I still love them though. :heart::heart::heart:
And there are some that don't act completely helpless. Belle, Pocahontas, Mulan...
