(l) Model 8 (c) Glam 2011 (r) Halle on fashionista 2012
I think I only had one, possibly two, of the old Fashionista bodies. Now I want to go out and buy all the new Artsy bodies and rebody a number of my other dolls. You know it's bad when the fully articulated dolls are getting new articulated bodies. This madness really has to end.
The Pop Life body was one of my favorite bodies. I only have two of them. They were my pivotal choice and they have exceptional motion. They are pretty skinny, which normally isn't appealing to me, but it is nice to be able to use some of those cute Model Muse clothes that don't fit the ladies with hips. But I just noticed yesterday that the Pop Life bodies are a lot taller than the Fashionista bodies. Not great when you are trying to pair up a doll with the already height challenged male dolls. My Racquel, BB2.5, is currently on a Pop Life body. Yes the articulated Basic doll got a new body the day she arrived. Madness I tell you! Anyway, I may have to move her to a Fashionista body because I have been looking high and low for a tall body for her husband. Girlfriend may just have to loose some of her height.
Believe it or not, the Barbie Basic 2.5 articulated body is on the far right. Again this body is taller than the Fashionista body and there is no pivotal movement. So I ask you this. Why wouldn't Mattel add the pivotal movement, too? They had it on their $10 doll, why not their $20 doll?
Here is Halle with her new body and her date for the New Year's Party. I think she likes him, but I can't tell if she is just happy to have a new pivotal body or if she's happy to have a date. Notice I said date, not man. She has not decided if they will be a couple. She just didn't want to be a third wheel at the party with her new best friend, Racquel, and her husband. (Yes, that man will be there even if I have to borrow a body).
So what's the drama you ask. Well, this New Year's Party is being hosted by The Langfords. Every year they throw a party and invite friends, family and some of the important business people in the community. They also encourage their friends and family to invite some of their business associates. It is the party that everyone looks forward to.
Just to refresh your memory. Darius is Camille and William's nephew. He is also a very prominent business owner. In other words, he and Nikki will be at the party. How did Halle get invited? Well Racquel invited her as her extended guest. Remember, Racquel's husband works with Darius, so that is how they got their invite. When I made Racquel and Halle good friends, it didn't dawn on me, until about a month later, what I had done. My intent was just to keep Halle from stealing Racquel's husband. I knew if they were really good friends Halle would not go there. (We don't play that in Morristown). So let the drama begin. By the way, Halle has no idea that Darius is going to be there. So let's see if her date is there at the end of the night.
