Since Barbie came wearing a Suit of Lights (traje de luces), the one that the bullfighters (toreros) wear, I thought that it was a suit better for Ken. Same happened to me with the George Washington Barbie.
This week I decided to try and make a Traje de Luces for Ken. Using and extra suit from Barbie I finally have one done. It is not perfect but I'm happy I finally made it!
I made his shoes, inspired by the "zapatillas de torero" (the shoes that the toreros wear).
Well here are the photos. Hope you like it. Actually, hope that someone come by to Ken group.
Thanks for visiting Ken's group, and... OLE !!
DISCLAIMER: these dolls never killed or will kill any animal. They are just wearing fashions inspired in traditions and culture from a particular region of the world.
Hi Lilly, yes I will be working on the socks very soon. I have to finish cleaning the house first.
Oh yes, about the disclaimer, I remembered that when the Barbie Torero came out there was a big fuzz about her, which for me makes no sense as the doll was just a "fashion" style and so is my Ken, they are not killing and they cannot even eat ! LOL
How about your project??
I totally agree with the no sense about the dolls and their "representation" and personally I was even deceived that Mattel had to change the too tall, too thin, too sexy Barbie's body that was supposed to give a wrong message to the little girls . I found that the fashion suit the first Barbie way better.
and J I joe was promoting war, and guns, and combat right?
right now I am like you, cleaning the house . but as it is a very old house, when I plant a nail I have to re-cement the all wall, so it does take time.
I'm done with the kitchen though and quite happy about it . it is clearer now and look like we bought a new one (more money to be saved for dolls)
if you have a facebook acount you can see it in my wall (dominique.f.cossu)
today I am "attacking the dining room!
it's a kind of crisis I got, when the winter is slowly going away.
ole !! here we are!! great !!! I love it!!
