Hi guys! For our 2nd post of the day, we're looking at the 2002 Holiday Celebration Barbie and she is just as stunning as the rest of them. The dresses are getting a bit bigger again as we had slimmed down a little with the 2003-2005 ones. They will all be big dresses from here on out, lol.
Here is the beautiful AA version of this doll and it's hard to tell, but I think she has the Nichelle face mold.
Here she is in her burgundy, velvet glory. The fabric is so soft and thick...very nice quality and the overall design is really pretty.
Her bodice has glittery vines on top of a light pink metallic fabric. She has large, bow-like sleeves that wrap around her collar and the base of the bodice is decorated with a bow.
She, like 2004's Barbie, also comes with a purse. This one matches the bodice of her dress and is in a pouch style.
Her hair is pulled up into a long blond ponytail and she has a glittery ponytail holder adding an extra touch of sparkle to her look.
She has a silver necklace with a "ruby" gem in the middle. Such nice, tiny details.
Pretty much all the shoes going forward have this same basic design, just in different colors.
She has the Mackie face mold (she's the 11th one we've reviewed with this one!) and she also came with rooted eyelashes. Her's are very subtle and really enhance her otherwise softer face. She has purple shadow on the lids and defined lip liner with frosty light purple lips.
Overall, she's really beautiful in this luscious sparkly velvet dress. She looks so pretty on my shelf under the Christmas lights! I love her burgundy color scheme, accessories and lovely, sweet face.
I just can't say enough good things about this era of Holiday Barbies in the 2000-2010 range!
I JUST ADORE THEM. :)
