Barbie for big girls.

Poppy Parker: Gallery Girl

I am in no way advocating the show “Gallery Girls” here.  I saw a little bit of it and was…well…not impressed.  The name rather comes from my idea when I redressed  the newly released “The Happening” Poppy Parker in Mattel’s Tim Gun separates.  I dressed her in the crisp white shirt and black skirt with glasses and thought she looked like some hip art gallery dealer.  The diorama just kind of filled in after that.  Hope you enjoy!

Model:  “The Happening” Poppy Parker

Clothing, glasses and shoes:  Barbie by Tim Gunn

  5. She looks fabulous and the diorama is amazing, too. Where on earth did you get the adorable coffee/tea pot? I am drawing a blank on the real name.

    • Thank you Vanessa! The little coffee pot is called a “French Press” and it is from Rement Dept Store set 8F. There are a couple on Ebay right now.

  6. She looks divine! What a great set. It happens to me too where I’ll re-dress a “little model” and voila things just magically appear in the set. Great shots!
