voodoo barbie

I was watching Buffy the other night and was enthralled (vocabulary!) by the prospect (vocabulary!) of performing voodoo using Barbies, especially by a witch who switched bodies with her teenaged daughter so she could relive her glory days as head cheerleader in high school.




And so I tried to dress like a voodooed Barbie.

Girly vomit pink stuff with this lumpy Comme des Garcons top sent to me by beso.com and thrifted raggy sweater. I changed shortly after because too many layers got uncomfortable, but it was fun to put together.

Barbie layered skirts: Gap Kids skirt, Prada lipstick print skirt from ebay, thrifted rose skirt, vintage pink ruffle dress, and thrifted boots.

Girl scout patch from troopmoore on Ebay.
The Hole necklace is because their logo uses the Barbie logo font and I guess their aesthetic was pretty voodoo Barbie-y earlier on, with Doll Parts and lyrics about witches and stuff. I bought the Bewitched necklace from Flamingo Cupcake on Etsy. The fairy skeleton charm is from a voodoo shop in New Orleans.

Japanese nail stickers (pearls=Barbie, cat=witch) and some ring from when I was little.
