Welcome to Morocco!

I’m a fan of the “Dolls of the World” Collection that was produced in the 1980s and 1990s. I’m always interested in other cultures. They are so exiting. I already had several DOTW dolls from the 1990s that I bought back then. I liked them because their look was different in comparison to other Barbie dolls. I’m not such a big fan of traditional dresses but I liked most dresses that the DOTW dolls wore. I’m not informed if these dresses are 100% authentic or not but I think this topic is not so important.

As a German I would never wear a Traditional dress because to me they are not fashionable. It’s often hard to do trivial tasks in such a dress like going to cycle. I prefer to wear practical clothes. Nevertheless it doesn’t mean that I reject them completely. I really like Traditional dress for the DOTW because it’s a thing of understanding other cultures. Morocco has still something mystic… hard to explain… maybe the magic of the orient that fascinates me.

One of my Superstar-Reroots

I haven’t posted very much in the last weeks. Now I’m going to change this. I wanted to show you one of my Superstar-Reroots. I did in 2012 I think. I ‘m a fan of  red haired Barbie dolls but in 1977 there were no red haired Superstars and I wondered what she would look like. And here is my result.

I have chosen a color called “Oxided Julia” for my reroot that had pink streaks in the red hair. I don’t think it has anything in common with the Color Magic Hair that was used for Julia in the late 1960s but I saw that it tended to turn from black  into a reddish tone. For the hair style I chose rope braids. They are easy  but you have lots of possibilities to work with them. The dress is a Best Buy dress from the late 1970s. I saw it and I thought it would match perfectly.
