Barbie for big girls.

Silence Auction preview

Tomorrow its time for the Groovy Gallery Opening welcome reception with the silence auction. This year I worked on a piece for this auction with some great friends. Mario and Gianni from Magia2000 asked me to make a set for their silence auction donation. They guys came with the idea to make an Andy Warhol doll with his muse Barbie. And Andy needed a studio.

So after some brainstorming we decided that I would recreate a piece of the famous factory studio. So a silver brick wall and a concrete floor was my starting point. When the dolls and set were ready we had the idea that it would be cool to have this donation shoot by a good photographer. So we were very happy that our dear friend Rebecca Berry from Inside The Fashion Doll Studio was willing to help us out. The dolls and set were put on express to the US were they arrived just in time. Rebecca did an amazing job the days before she was leaving for convention herself.

So here it is our donation for the silence auction.

Look at that face. Now that is the face of a MUSE.

And I love the Marylin patterned fabric the guys used for her spectacular gown.

The set has many mini’s that you can play with like sketches, polaroids, Interview magazines and many of Andy’s famous pieces of art.

And look at the bling on her shoes.
