ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Behind Barbie of the Undead
When I worked for a shoe store, we decorated our desks for Halloween. My theme was “Returns of the Living Dead (Our shoes don’t fit and we want a refund.)” Three zombie Barbies and a Ken, scattered bone-filled limbs made of modeling clay, dozens of miniaturized return forms scattered about the scene, a ‘shopped poster from the original movie and a flickering strobe against a black plastic backdrop.
It looked pretty awesome actually. I won a $10 Starbucks gift card for it. Oh boy.
I’m off to my 20 yo daughter’s room to see if there’s any old dolls left. Cool (cheap) xmas present!
niiiiiiiiiiiice. Cory, plan on getting your baby mutant any barbies soon?
Glue a horn on her head and she’s perfect for your next unicorn “chaser”.
another wonderful example of sad dolls.
