Barbie for big girls.

Presenting at the Oscars

I love watching the Oscars.  Well…mostly I just like watching the red carpet and posting my picks and pans after.  Last year I had a lot of fun and success with my “Getting ready for the Oscars” photo.  See all the information about this photo here.

Mattel had just released this new wardrobe piece and I was anxious to use it.  In my head, Barbie was getting ready to go to the Oscars as a possible recipient.  Because she was one of the contenders for the gold statue, she needed to be in a drop dead gown.  The story continued in my head that she went on to win the Oscar.  That means that this year, she will be presenting the Oscar for the award she won last year. 

Model:  Barbie Basics®Model No. 01 — Collection 001

Gown:  Miniature Couture by Mary

Jewelry:  Fashion Royalty Monogram Completist accessory pack

Diorama:  Wall panel was made my me.  More info here.  Clock was found in Paris and the beautifully painted bombé chest will be featured in a future blog post.  More info coming.  Floral arrangements in golden urns were made by me.

    Stunning!!! Your diorama and styling are divine as always. (I have been meaning to write to you about some furniture you mentioned you were producing or am I having one of those “60’s flashbacks???”) I hope there are some fab fashions on the soggy red carpet.

    • Hi Laura! I had fun with this diorama so I am glad people are enjoying the photos. Yes, more information about furniture should be coming. I am slow to get going on it. Too many projects going on right now.
