Doll haircutting tutorial

Join us Thursday, February 12th at 9pm eastern (6pm pacific) in the Dolly Daily chatroom (accessible in the Dolly Daily Community) for a doll haircutting tutorial and chat. Lea has been gracious enough to host a haircutting seminar on one of her Bratz dolls, but any doll will suffice. She has already posted the necessary supplies and a few instructionals in the "how to" forum of the Dolly Daily community.

Barbie doll celebrates her 50th Anniversary

2009 marks Barbie doll's 50th anniversary. I'm so excited to be a doll collector during this time. I hope that Mattel knocks our socks off with a bevy of releases that honor the original teenage fashion model.

Here's a pic I recently took of an original #1 blonde Barbie doll from 1959. She's modeling Gay Parisienne, one of the original outfits available from that same year. In this ensemble Barbie doll exudes the fashion, style, and elegance of the late 1950s. She gave children everywhere a glimpse into a world of modeling, jet-setting, and glamour right in their very own homes.

Without Barbie doll, the concept of the modern fashion doll might be considerable different. My sincere thank you to everyone at Mattel in the late 1950s and early 1960s, to the creators of the Bild Lilli doll, to Ruth Handler, to Charlotte Johnson, and everyone involved in bringing Barbie doll to life. It just wouldn't be the same without her.

I've begun a thread in the Dolly Daily community photo forum where I will continue on with my year-long photo tribute to Barbie doll.
