Barbie + Sharpie =

Nude barbies, beware! You're gonna wear clothes and you're gonna like it!

Sa laughed at me the other day because we got a few new barbies in our house and I immediately grabbed a sharpie. Anyone who knows me knows that if a barbie wants to live here, she's gonna have to put on a sharpie bathing suit. It's just the way it is. Not even Ken is safe. He started out with a sharpie speedo, but with the way his torso is cut, that just looked REALLY wierd. No offense Ken, most guys can't pull it off either.

Poor mangled hands...Lulu got a hold of them



If you're gonna have sharpie suits, you need to make sure you always have a sharpie handy because after enough wear and tear, THIS happens...



The marker will eventually wear off in the very spots you were trying to cover, accentuating the "busty-ness".

I know a lot of you may not let your daughter play with Barbies, and that's cool too. This is my compromise. However, Bratz dolls...ugh, there's not enough sharpie's in the world to let one of THOSE in my house!

absolutely linds. I can even style the backs to be straight a cross or have a little dip in them...I'm practically a designer.

i'd be the same way if we had a girl- and Bratz dolls would never be allowed in our house either! (i think all our strictness is why we'll never have a girl)
