Finally complete

In the last weeks I had the chance to complete my  1977  Superstar Barbie doll. She came with her dress, earrings and her ring.  Back then when she was released with a dress, a boa, a pair of  pink Superstar shoes, earrings, a necklace and a ring.

Here are some pictures of the now completed outfit:

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.

Quick update, my Superstar #1 is complete now

Yesterday the missing pieces from my Superstar #1 Barbie arrived. Now she’s complete with dress, ring, earrings, necklace, boa and her shoes.

Here a little comparison when she arrived…
