Barbies from 1959 - 2015- That wasn't a good quality pic of the '79 doll. Dolls from that year were absolutely gorgeous. Just ignore the pics from 2006-2014. 2015 is fine, and nothing will be OK once they change Barbie's body (perfectly healthy in her world) to something that isn't right for her build and image.
We created a piece where we were dolls that "came to life" when our owner left. We all had contrasting personalities and wondered about a "wider reality" to the one we know. We encorperated both frantic assembly and complicité.
