Hi again! In this post we are taking a quick look at the 2005 Happy Holiday Barbie.
She's the first one that is dressed in this lovely green and gold theme and it's a refreshing break from the red!
During this particular release, they also had a gorgeous African American version of her with the Goddess face sculpt, which I really wanted to get, but she was a bit too pricy for my budget this year.
She's wearing a one-shoulder dress in green fabric lined with a metallic gold fabric. The dress sort of drapes around her in a lovely way, but the actual dress is a mermaid style gown, tighter around the hips and flaring out towards the feet. She's on a Model Muse body with five points of articulation.
She has an amazing gold threaded embroidered pattern across the bodice and top of her skirt with little stones placed within the design.
She's wearing long golden earrings and gold shoes.
She comes with red painted nails.
She has the gorgeous Mackie face scuplt, who by now, I've determined is my 2nd favorite Barbie sculpt after the nostalgic Superstar face sculpt.
Overall, she doesn't disappoint. I think her hair is pretty, her face and makeup are gorgeous and I love the color scheme they went with this year. I just love her!
Do any of you have her?
Dresses used to be a lot more elaborate back in the day! I was looking for some older dolls (tnt era, period outfits) and I was surprised at the amount of detail 20$ can get me.ReplyDelete
I know, it's really hard to believe that they were this nicely made and the cost is still the same as the recent holiday barbies. It's crazy!Delete
