D7ana over at phillycollector.blogspot.com was on top of "Stardoll by Barbie" fashion dolls before they were even released and has kept us up-to date since. She announced in March 2012 that the dolls were on sale at Target. Thank you, D7ana!
To recap, Stardolls are mini-fashionistas right down to their real eyelashes and on trend mix-n-match outfits. They were released in 2011 and retailed at $20.99 each. Separate fashions packs sold for around $14.99.
Stardolls are sorta old news now but they're still providing me with lots of fun. I’ve rebodied mine and thought I’d share what success I have had matching skin tones.
Here my girls meet for morning coffee and gossip at the local Donut Shop.
Bonjour Bizou Style 1 & 2 and Fallen Angel were rebodied on 2012 Fashionistas with tanned skin tone.
Most 2012 (and prior) Fashionistas have tanned skin tone, so they are easy to find. Here’s an example:
Pretty in Love was rebodied on a 2011 Barbie Basics Model #4b. The Basics have the model muse slim hips, so it’s obvious that Pretty in Love won’t be ordering donuts with her coffee this morning.
Doll Space Style with her rosy, slightly yellow skin tone was the most difficult to match.
Problem solved when I ran across this pale skinned 2012 Fashionista. Perfect match for Doll Space Style!
Gothic was rebodied on Black Canary 2008 Barbie Doll with pale skin tone, large bust. I’m not sure if she’ll stay on it, but until I find a better option, the skin tone match is great.
My favorite Stardoll is Doll Space Style. I love her sculpt. Her hair and eye color, and red lips are a killer combination, imho.
Coming in second is Pretty in Love. To me she looks friendly and intelligent. Maybe that’s why she’s the first Stardoll to begin life in Roville. She's entrepreneurial and owns a coffee shop. She doesn’t have a name yet and I'd love to hear suggestions, please.
I’m looking forward to fun playtime with these girls. I’m dying to restyle their hair, and thinking of re-rooting Fallen Angel’s bangs. Yes? No?
