Here is my first group of young ladies showing off their new Sparkle Girls clothes.
First left we have AG Mini Addy. I am not sure about the off shoulder look for her, but otherwise I really like the fit on her. She is wearing black stockings from her original outfit and shoes I found on eBay. In the center is Stacie's friend Whitney. This dress is a little loose on her, but I still think she looks nice. On the right we have AG mini Marie Grace. This outfit is a really good fit for her. These ladies are all set to go to school, don't you think?
Here is a closer look at the fit on Marie Grace without the denim vest. The top fits snuggly, but closes nicely in the back. She is wearing stockings from her original outfit and some black Stacie or Skipper shoes.
This next group of girls are OHC, old and new Skipper and new Stacie bodies. My tweens.
The doll on the left is my daughter Hannah. She is OHC I think she looks nice in this outfit. In the middle, we have an older Skipper head on a new Stacie body. Doesn't she look cute? On the right is another old style Skipper. Another nice look and fit.
Next up we have some of my teen girls.
On the left is a young Dorothy doll on a Liv body. She is loving this look! Her friend who is a Barbie Dorothy on an Obitsu 25cm body, is loving this look on her. Take a look at her shoes. They are from Miniwoo and they have a great variety of styles that fit Liv, Obitsu, FR and other dolls with a little larger feet.
Last, but not least, I tried some clothes on a couple of my Barbies.
On the left is an AA jointed ballerina Barbie (skinny body). Not loving this look for her, but more on that later. The lady on the right is on one of the jointed "I Can Be . . ." from a couple of years ago. Her head is from a Barbie whose shirt lit up. I cannot remember exactly who she was! Anyway, I like this on her.
As you can see, the dress on the ballerina body was not a good fit. It did not clothes in the back. I tried another outfit on her.
I was able to close this in the back, but found it to be a very snug fit. I could't pull the suspenders all of the way up. I also think this was too short on her.
That is it for my Sparkle Girls fashion show. Next, I want to introduce you to one of my families in Hanaly Corners. Meet the Gordons!
Here we have Sharmaine and Michael Gordon with their 10 year old son Benjamin and 3 year old daughter Zoey. The Gordons recently moved to Hanaly Corners from Chicago. Sharmaine's family is originally from Hanaly Corners and the Gordons had acted upon an opportunity to open a Sporting Goods business in Hanaly Corners so that Sharmaine could be closer to her family. Michael is a former basketball star from Chicago. They are settling into their new home which is a work in progress. They will be sharing their home improvements with you as they are made!
Sharmaine is an AA City Shopper Barbie on the AA Pop Life body. Michael is a Michael Jordan action figure head from Enterbay on a Fashion Royalty Remi body. I had to "Mufferize" his head a bit to get it to fit on the body, but I love how tall this body is for him. He is wearing a shirt from Minibarbie on eBay and his pants are from Clear Lan. Benjamin is an AA Todd head on a Kenya Keyshia body. Zoey is from the friends of Kelly series of dolls. I love this family!
Here are a few other shot of Michael's head fit on this FR body:
What an awesome fit!
Lastly, below is the beginnings of a sofa I am making for the Gordons. I was unpacking some appliance (I can't remember now) and pulled out these cardboard corners that I thought were perfect sofa bases for Barbie.
It is funny how I now look at packaging material for it's potential as furniture!
Here, Michael demonstrates how nice this is size wise as a sofa for his family -- he can spread out on it!
I hope you enjoyed this post. Stay tuned to meet more of Sharmaine's family and how the Gordon's house progresses!
Thanks for looking!
