Now…all I need are some release dates, some Mattel sanctioned photos and some prices and I can start budgeting.  Smile


Oscar Night Glamour

For the past couple of years, I have shared an elaborately styled diorama photo in honor of the academy awards season.  There was the “Getting Ready for the Oscars” post.  Then there was the “Presenting at the Oscar’s” post.  This year, I decided to go back to simple glamour and use the newest addition to the BFMC Silkstone Barbie line.  She redresses incredibly well.

The liner in the box is a soft pink!  Adorable.

The new tags have pink lettering instead of blue…nice touch.

Hair is slightly different than promo shots.  The hair comes into a curl closer towards the face on the production doll.  I advise that you be very, very careful when removing the hair net from the chignon on this one.  While it is nice that the chignon is not glued into lacquer hardness, it does mean that it can be messed up fairly easily.  I decided to just sacrifice the hairnet and cut it off little by little.  I then applied some hairspray and gel to keep things in place.  All in all, not too bad.

Does that hat come curled like this you ask??  Nope.  Want to know how I did it?

Just curl it inside a toilet paper roll for a couple hours.  You will need to switch it around from one side to the other a couple times  so both sides curl evenly.

She is a beauty!!  Well worth the $50 in my opinion.  I can’t wait to redress and photograph this lady.

It looks like Mr. Best and Lars(set designer for Mattel) are channeling their inner Dior with this set.  How Fabulous!!  I ask again…can we please, please, please get these little chairs in production for purchase?!!

{SWOON}  You had me at the hat people…at the hat.  I have to admit though, the little side chignon is making me do the happy dance too.   Here is another thing making me do the happy dance, the new box design.

Rogier over at one of my favorite doll blogs, Dutch Barbie World, reported this morning with these pictures from European Amazon sites.  If you want information on the Silkstone world first…sign up for his blog posts.  I have to say…I like the IRL photos even better.  And that pale pink liner?!!! {Swoon…again}  Now how am I supposed to debox that?!  Rogier laughed and said “Easy, get two”  Wise words Mr. Corbeau.

The new logo is very reminiscent of the vintage Dior logo.
