Right now there are 35 degrees Celsius in Bucharest and I feel like melting. As much as I love summer, this weather is just too much for me so I’m going to chill while drinking an ice coffee and posting these images of the 2016 Playline Holiday Barbie dolls.
I did post them yesterday on my Facebook page but I have neglected a bit the blog so I just had to post them here also.
Yesterday MAC Cosmetics has posted a photo on Instagram depicting a model surrounded by several Barbie dolls. This not the first time MAC has teamed up with Barbie, but this time Barbie does not have her own makeup line. She is the image of the new Fashion Pack Collection.
For those who don’t follow trends, but make and break them…we salute you. Let’s lead the way with the next wave of front row-worthy hues. Fuchsia, violet, emerald, deepest plum, midnight: Capture the charisma of couture’s most sumptuous fantasies, then create our own. Regal nails and jewel-tipped lips bring a lavish finishing touch. Ready to wear…any way you dare! So be a doll, show us how — the fashion pack is always in the know.
The collection is made up of eyeshadows, lipsticks, pigments and eye liners in vibrant and fresh colors. Unfortunatelly the so called “human Barbie doll” Valeryevna Lukyanova and the “human Ken doll” Justin Jedlica are featured and interviewd on the collection’s mini website as they talk about growing up with dolls and the changes they made to their body so that they would look like those dolls. I’m sorry but I don’t understand why would Mattel/MAC chose to associate with them as they represent everything Barbie fans and collectors are not. Just for marketing’s sake? I guess so. Sad, in my oppinion. Just sad. I also grew up with dolls but I never wanted to look like one.
This is one collection I’m not going to buy. I’m all about makeup, beating up your face and even plastic surgery, but what those two are doing is an extreme I consider very unhealthy and I would never endorse something that promotes that images. Sorry.
She is perfect! I would have loved a more detailed box, something like the She-Ra box, but the doll is simply gorgeous.
As befitting of the daughter of Zeus, Wonder Woman™ makes her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice™ and this Justice League member proves she’s battle ready! Inspired by the costume worn in the movie, this Wonder Woman™ Barbie® doll arrives at SDCC cloaked in a royal blue hooded cape lined with gold lamé and worn over her bold red bustier and royal blue paneled skirt. She also wears her signature golden headdress, bulletproof bracelets and golden lasso. Standing heroically atop a “rocky” ledge brandishing a sword and shield, she is the portrait of a true Amazonian Warrior Princess.
Thanks to a Facebook friend of mine, Susannah Williams, I found out about this massive doll collection that is being auctioned online on June 8th. OH. MY. GOD!!!! Sooooooooo many gorgeous girls! Sindy, Barbie from all ages, rare Barbie store displays, Jem, Tressy, Ashton Drake, Bild Lilli, vintage German toys and doll houses, you name it.

Yes, i know I’m late to the party, but… Well, I have no excuse. I hope you’ll excuse me for this and enjoy the article.
After the Fashion Show ended we went straight to the cocktail party and sipped some champagne and enjoyed some fresh sea food apetizers. Really yummy! We mingled and waited for the Gala Dinner as everybody was getting more and more anctious to see the convention doll.
Soon after we were welcomed in the ballroom that looked so chic and festive. This year they completley change the set up and in the middle of the room there was a catwalk so that everybody could see Mario and Gianni when they did their presentations. Such a good idea!
My table host was, as always, my lovely Monica and lots of gifts were waiting for us. She made us some very cute dolls in mod fashions. I got the Asian one. There also was a beautiful centerpice made by Magia 2000 themselves.
The Gala Dinner wa sa lot of fun. We had Liza Minelli and Marylin Monroe visit us and we also the ladies from Dynamo Camp on stage as they received a check for 20,000 euros from the ebay charity. I have to admit the small clip that presented their camp and their work really touched me and that’s why I wasn’t prepared for the moment when Mario announced that Rogier and I won the Special IDC award for our blogs. OMG! I was floored. I really was. I know there’s a lot of controversy around me and there are people that, let’s just say, don’t like me, so I honestly was not expecting this.
The last, but not the least, award of the night was for the Fashion Show. My darling Monica won the famale one for her great Curvy Fashionistas impersonation.
And then… The convention doll was presented. Sorry for the crappy video, but that’s all I could film. I do need to get a decent camera next convention so I can properly film and take pictures.
The night ended with a SUPER fun dance party. We could have danced the entire night but the rooms had to prepared for the Sales Room the next morning so at around 2 o’clock we went to bed.
The next morning I woke up early, packed my bags and went straight down to the Sales Room. I did a live video on Facebook about it so check it out below.
As always there were a lot of great deals and lots of OOAK artists. Below is a HUGE gallery of images that I hope you’ll enjoy. After I took the images I went straight to the airport as it was time to go back home. Can’t wait for the 2017 IDC especially because the theme is so much fun: IDC Goes Wedding. I’m so bringing my wedding dress with me. Hahaha!
The 2016 Look Barbie dolls are starting to show up in stores and here are some IRL images via Instagram user only_love_barbie. I do wish they would have kept the Steffie facemold on the Boho girl, but she is cute none the less.
The Barbie Style Instagram account just published this image that shows a very beautiful AA curvy articulated body? Could this mean we we’ll be getting it in the next wave of Fashionistas? Maybe even a tall and a petite articulated body?
This year is all about the Presidential elections in the US so Barbie is celebrating this with some cute 2 doll packs. They are available on Amazon. Just click the names and you’ll be directed to the sales page on Amazon.
