Barbie for big girls.

Behind the Scenes of the BFMC Atelier Collection…

And a possible Sneak Peak at one of the dolls for next year!

When I attended a pullout session at Barbiecon in July, Mattel shared a video with Robert Best explaining his thought process behind the current Atelier Collection for the BFMC.  It was absolutely delightful and I was hopeful they would share it on the Barbie Collector website.  They did that today and I wanted to share it with all of you.  Pay particular attention to the sketch of a platinum blond doll in black cocktail dress in the beginning of the video and again towards the end.  I am guessing this is one of the new offerings for next years continuation of the BFMC Atelier Collection.  Can’t wait to see if I am right but in the mean time…here is the video…Enjoy!

  1. You were right about the red head in a yellow gown that was sneaked in the atelier shots from early on. She would be stunning, for sure. Let’s hope your prediction comes true!

    So beautiful! I was captivated by all the details and 3D feeling of the film. I’ve started collecting Silkstone dolls and have been repainting more of them – all thanks to you 🙂
