Barbie for big girls.

Reverence for the Repaint

I can do many things when it comes to doll collecting.  I cannot do what Jon Copeland does.  I can’t even contemplate it.  I can, however, observe, enjoy and photograph it.

For those who are interested, she was originally a Mila™ Barbie® Doll.

    Wow, she is gorgeous. I love her make-up and hairdo so much. She has a 40’s look. Simply stunning.

    She is truly fantabulous!! Her hairdo is simply amazing, the color blend SO lovely. The opposition of her gorgeous dark smoky eyes and vixen red lip with the bright sunlit blonde hair is perfection. She’s giving me a fantastic film noir vibe, especially in that stunning raven gown.

    • Yes indeedy. Those names were coming to mind when I unpacked this one as well. Those smoky eyes and red lips scream 1940’s.

    • Yes, the eyes are really quite something on this one. The pictures really don’t do it justice. Thank you for the comment.
