Punk Pop Barbie?!


In my day, if you wanted Barbie's hair to be pink you had to color it yourself. With MARKERS.

  1. Ergh. Um ... no. But the dog as a pendant would be cool.

    Also, juice worked. Specifically, cranberry. If you let her drown in it for long enough.

  3. Food colouring was my dye of choice. My friend and I gave one of ours a terrible spiked haircut, wrapped her in duct tape and called her 'techno barbie'.

  4. I remember having to invest in something better then washable markers.

  5. i don't believe they can even get away with calling that barbie "punk" if her hair already comes colored. they should have just included markers in the box or something.

  6. She also has neck tattoos and is rolling her eyes.

  7. UUUGGGGHHHH...... NO WORDS.

    also: if you didn't have barbies or were "too old" to play with barbies, you colored your blonde sister's hair with markers, which worked equally well.

  8. Okay, clearly this is dumb on many levels but RAD on one level: cactus dog. That thing is some crazy dada awesomeness.

  9. Also, getting Barbie's hair to lie flat in a bob was a BITCH. I used three cans of my mom's hairspray.

  10. that barbie looks too skinny.
    I once cut my own hair when I was a kid. My mom saw the tresses and I told my mom I cut my Barbie's hair. I have black hair, the barbie's hair is blonde. Wow, what a dumbass I was.

  11. "With MARKERS" Precisely. I had a Barbie with crappy blonde hair, so I chopped it off, then took a fine tipped marker and drew a vertical line in the middle of little white teeth part between her lips. Voila - Roxette Barbie!

    Either way, pop punk is one of the lamest genres of music out there.

  12. This is almost as cool as my Kelly Kapowski barbie.

    Also, I guess there are a bunch of parents upset over the "bad message" a tatted-up barbie sends. Because she was such a good role model before? LOLZ.

    But apparently these are for adult collectors. Yeah...adult Barbie collectors. That's not weird at all.

  13. the most notable thing i remember from my Barbie playing days was putting Ken in Barb's awesome early 90s party dresses.

    Maybe that collector item comes next?

  14. It was all about Jem and the Holograms for me. And Barbie had freakishly small feet, which I always found slightly disturbing. Oddly the diaproportionately large breasts, etc were perfectly acceptable to me as a child.

  15. The legit shit was KOOL AID. Dying hair on myself or Barbie with Kool Aid. The sugar free stuff, that is.

    Maybe I was a real weirdo, but I used to break off an arm or leg on some barbies, just to kleenex and tape a "cast" onto her. My Barbies would also strip for Kens. Am I alone here?

  16. PS. In retrospect, JEM was the cool girl.

  17. forget barbie's hair, frances needs that cactus costume.

  18. ALSO.
    my ballin' halloween costume this year is Naked Barbie. three pieces necessary: nude leotard, blonde wig, pink heels.

    and i'm drinking beer all night with my arms at right angles.

  19. Allyson that is hilarious. If you tease the wig and go barefoot, you will be all of the barbies I ever owned. You would have to walk on tiptoes tho.

    Elbows at right angles had me in stitches.

  20. i've been sitting on this costume for two years, trying to grow the balls to wear it.
    poof! balls grown.
    i'm pumped about the oncoming 10/31/11. :)
