so

Speaking of contest entries and arty fun things and having a little too much time on your hands, I thought I'd go ahead and post something fun! And more than a little dorky, haha. Let me know if you'd like it behind a cut!



Some background: I've been working on putting together a movie-based West Side Story Barbie doll collection for a month or so, since Mattel doesn't seem to want to oblige me. This is Maria, which should hopefully be pretty obvious! I haven't been able to figure out which doll she is (thank you, eBay) but the dress is an altered Puerto Rican Barbie dress, which amuses me very much. (Maria was going to be Puerto Rican Barbie, too, but when she arrived she screamed Rosalia to me. Which is why Maria somehow has green eyes and looks more like Russian!Natalie Wood—apologies!) I took a few photos tonight, and photoshopped this one to look all vintage-y, but would like to get a nicer looking diorama-style background of some sort before I start taking looots of pictures. So this is basically a teaser—hope you enjoy! :)

Now all you need is a "Tony" doll and you can pose them together and play what we call over in the Buffyverse "Fiddley Bits Theatre".
It's a lot of fun having a collection of character dolls and posing them into silly positions.

Agree! :)
Oh, my Tony doll amuses me because he's a Disney/Mattel Prince Charming doll, haha. Unfortunately he's a little lacking in clothes at the moment. But I will definitely be posting photos of Riff, Bernardo, Anita, Graziella, A-Rab, Anybodys, Rosalia, and of course, Ice and Velma! XD

Btw, could you set this to "everyone" and not just "members" please.

Thank you so much!! :D And because I think you might be amused, I'm researching NYPD police action figures (dolls? Of course not! They're action figures! XD) for Schrank and Krupke. I can't believe they actually exist. O_O

Ha! That is epic. I wasn't sure if you'd be making them or not. I hope you find some nice muscular ones that will work!
