Barbie Gets Hood YO!

"I'm so very hot that when I rob your mansion, you ain't call the cops u call the fire station" - Robyn, Konichiwa Bitches

PICTURE HEAVY POST! I had an assignment last year to write a 3000 word feature, yes 3000, on anything...and I chose trainers. It's an area I am passionate about so 3000 seemed a breeze, and I did get through it (and passed with a good grad I must say)! There is just so much you can say! I based it around the small market of trainers for women, how not much caters to women's needs unlike men's and proudly named my feature "Chicks Who Love Kicks." Luckily a lot has changed since I wrote that and the footwear market has started to take note, And I must emphasise STARTED! Anyway...I decided to include imagery with my piece (like it was a professional one ^_^) and came up with the idea of the barbies wearing mini trainers I bought for collection's sake.

Sometimes even the Barbie's get bored with the sky scrapper high heels and just want to kick back and wear a good ol' pair of Nikes'! It was so fun dressing them up and putting them in the situations as if they were human beings, reminded me of the good old days! The furniture is all authentic IKEA, from a old play set me and my sister had when we were bububs!

Oh and did I mention, its Barbie's 50th anniversary! Barbie rocks!

Is it odd that I wish I had that Donald Duck tee in my wardrobe? and also team it with those red checked shorts? and how HOT is that pink geometric pink dress...That dress would be my dream dress -Trashy as hell but I don't care!

Is it obvious that I styled them?? My mother didn't buy the barbies like that! Of course not, I put the mini outfits together along with the gold chains and hot Kicks! Enjoy, and please tell me what you think!

Love this miniature kicks on them. And the one with the Dondald Duck tee is def my favorite :P!

I don't know it's real, but you can see the camera upclosing her top and her shoes, so I think it's made real, very well!

hahaha I love barbie sporting the nikes! quite an upgrade from plastic pumps.

Rollergirl said...

Barbie looks WAY better in Nikes. So are they Barbie Nikes or did they just happen to fit? I think Nike should do some shoes for Barbie, wearing heels all the time cant be good for her.

Rachie-Pie said...

they were barbies I dress up in ornament nike shoes...they are for display hehe!oh and they were a little to big hence why barbie still has heels inside her nikes
