There are some dolls that aren’t beautiful, but they should be. In my opinion, Glam N Jam Barbie is one of these dolls. There are some good elements there – the blonde and purple hair, a sort of glamorous rock theme. The doll’s face isn’t great, though, and she’s easy to come by second hand.
In my first ever post back in May, I told you how I came by this doll. Ever since then, I’ve been planning to have a go at OOAKing her. Today, as it was either this or have another fight with the sewing machine, I gave it a go.
My boyfriend says she looks like Daryl Hannah on drugs – I don’t mind this, it could have turned out worse and this is kind of what I thought this doll should look like in the first place. It took me three complete removals of face paint before I got to something I was sort of happy with. In the end, I only managed it by doing my best to keep it simple and not try for fancy shading or anything. I also gave her hair a little re-condition – its still wet in the photo but I like this effect as it kept it sleek, so I might actually gel it into this style. Her dress is playline Barbie 2009 from a fashion pack.
