Barbie for big girls.

Ayumi is a Total Betty

The actual name for this doll is Totally Betty Ayumi.  If you have never watched the movie Clueless you may have missed the meaning of the reference.  Per the Online Slang Dictionary, the definition of Betty is

noun
  • an attractive female; "hottie". 

Oddly enough, the citation for this definition is the movie Clueless.   Well..whether or not the movie coined this term and it’s meaning, this Ayumi is definitely a stunner.  The outfit she came in was perfect for the urban and hip look.  My collection runs more towards the elegant and sophisticated so I wanted to transform this current Ayumi with an outfit I had recently received.  I suspected she would fit into “elegant and sophisticated” without a problem….and I was right.  This also gave me a chance to use one of the amazing screens I recently picked up on Etsy.

Model and jewelry:  Totally Betty Ayumi

Shoes: FR2 shoe pack

Suit and faux fur: HOANG ANH KHOI on Etsy

Screen: Customdollhouse on Etsy

Tulips:  Available soon at ITFDS

I absolutely adore the soft facial screening on her!!  A number of collectors have said she bears a striking resemblance to Chrissy Teigan.  I can totally see that!

    Oh, I see on Etsy that the mirror screen is for 12″ or 14″ dolls. I was hopiing she was 16″. Still a collectible, though!

    • Yes, she is a 12″ doll so the screens at scaled for that size.

  8. Yes, total Betty from the writers of Clueless, but they probably got it from Betty Grable, one of the most popular American pin-up girls during WWII.

  10. Be careful when buying from this designer. I bought na outfit in March 2017. Up till now (May 23rd) he is still promising me he is going to ship. I’m very disappointed!!!

    • As of today – June 28th – the outfit that I bought from Khoi has finally arrived. It is very beautiful, but buying from him requires a lot of patience!!
