In the beginning...
Anyway, so my friend Timilee went to a Goth club and was shocked by a girl wearing a certain outfit. I thought it was pretty funny and told her I was going to make a Barbie in her honor. So I did. I had a blast. That's when I gave Suzi Retro and Darbie their make overs. I was hooked. I was and still am very proud of Malice.
Apey went all intervention on me (thank you, ma'am) and got me treatment I totally needed. But doing this Barbie stuff at the height of my crazy was amazing and helped so much. I was so afraid I'd lose it once I got on meds, but thank geebus I didn't.
So, I had this great idea to make a Goth/dance/whatever club for my Barbies. I was just gonna make a couple, yanno. Then they kind of took over and I got Apey into and we started doing it together. Then I got Timilee into it, too. Now sometimes we all 3 do it together. :o)
Oh right, the club. durpdurp. Sorry. I have this exact replica miniature of Whirlitzer (?) juke box. It used to work when it belonged to my Gramma. I used to play with it as a kid at her house. It got packed away with batteries in it and it got ruined. Boo. It's perfect Barbie size and perfect for display, however.
The Ring Master (blue) isn't in the club anymore and neither is that super hero chick in the background. They were 4th and 5th made. After them, I've kind of lost count. I could probably figure it out if I had to. I think the Family Grimm came next.
I personally think it's pretty cool. I want to make other displays with my other dolls. There's been talk of coffee shops and churches, old war hospital scenes and stuff like. I like art. heh
I'll update you on the club once I get the swing back up and everyone who's suppose to be there is there. lol
