AA Barbie Basics 2.5 is Here and She's Fabulous!
She is my new favorite doll. I wanted to put her in with the Elite group, but I think I need to work her into the Families, because she needs a lot of video time. I knew last week that I would pair her up with my new favorite baby. I thought they would make a good pair, and I was right! I have to find this woman a husband. I have one in mind, but he might be a little old for her. We shall see.
I was so excited about her that I made a denim couch to greet her upon her arrival. I finished putting the legs on it this morning. Perfect timing. Of course she doesn't get to keep the sofa. It will be put in my Etsy shop just as soon as I figure out what the second set of pillows will be.
She is skinny like the Model Muse dolls, but completely articulated. The jeans are pretty stretchy because I was able to remove them without taking off her shoes. I did not try them on any other doll, yet. She can not sit without the snap in the back coming undone.
The copper top and copper shoes are stunning! The color is so unexpected.
Here she is with her baby. The baby's hair color perfectly matches this doll's hair color.
Just a close up of the sofa fabric. I love this sofa, I think I will have to make one for my dolls.
So let's see what she can do without those jeans on.
Sorry for the blur. My camera was focused on the sofa. Oops.
I have been trying to get this pose for quite some time.
I figured while I had her down here, I would let her do my exercises. I just wasn't feeling it today.
Here she is working my abs. I mean her abs.
So I love the new doll and the body is nice for $20. However, I will be swapping her body for the Pop Life body Halle is on. I am only doing this because she has to be able to hold her baby. See how nicely Halle is holding the baby. The new girl's arms do not have that range. I am still kicking myself for not buying more of the Pop Life dolls from BC. It was $12! Kick, kick, kick!
Did I mention how much I love this little girl. I was able to almost get her thumb in her mouth. She is not holding this pose without some help, but it shows how flexible her arms and legs are.
I bought 2 of this doll and one of the accessory sets. The accessory set is nice. We will save that for another day. This is my second post of the day. You can see the other one here.
