Now, this is just freaky. From Alice, of the wonderful Wonderland blog, we get this Alice in Wonderland doll, by way of Barbie. Look at those eyes, halfway between a traditional Barbie and the over-exaggerated, anime-y Bratz dolls. I do like the dress though, that Gothic Lolita retro-Victorian feel. As Alice says, very harajuku. I think the Cheshire Cat is staring up her camisole though. Now, you ask yourself, we have Barbie, what about Ken? Yes, my child… What about Ken?
Apparently, “Ken” is now an old woman with a taste for overtly large head wear. Really kids, what the hell is going on here? Barbie is an interesting, if unexpected, blending of the imagery of both universes. This, this is just bizarre. I can’t stop staring at his freakish, old woman face, the sad, world-weary gaze of longing. This Ken knows he’s not getting any tail any time soon, unless it’s cottontail, and he’s just not happy about it. Apparently, they’re bringing out a Red Queen as well; I’m crossing my fingers for Skipper.
