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! :)
