First Projects: Amazon


A preliminary experiment when I was first beginning to explore customizing. Initially I thought about trying to hack off one of her breasts, but the discovery that Barbie torsos are very hard hollow plastic put me off that idea, leading to this simple doll. The toy set-up in the back indicates that this photo was taken in DC shortly after her completion.

A beach Barbie, chosen for flat feet and closed smile, got a very different hair-do, removed toenail polish and toned down facial makeup. Hand sewn costume. Dress: linen with button/paint and wire accent, Sandals: Leather scraps and necklace cord, Spear: carved out of craft wood, balsa or similar. Completed 2005
