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.

I love the layering of skirts and dress.Maybe i should watch more buffy the vampire slayer so i could have cool inspirations about voodoo barbies aswell

Ella said...

i really adore the nails, i think that whole beaded nail trend is really in right now. caviar nails is what they call them!

Alexis said...

freaky friday comes to mind now, from the good ole switch-a-roo.

EmK said...

ah I love buffy, ha.
I like those layers, the different patterns are intriguing (in a good way, of course).

Kaiami said...

Layered skirts! Fun stuff. The most I can wear is three skirts at a time. Any more and I'd start stripping them off.

I like your nails.

paperwhales said...

Ahhh! I really love your black cat stickers. I just love black cats more for their association with witchcraft. Nothing cooler!

and you never fail to scare me in a post
well done

My name is Giacobba said...

great outfit! plus your expression in the photo really ties into the whole voodoo vibe, which i think is cooler than a plastic barbie smile.

WendyB said...

I've been watching a lot of Buffy lately, wondering if I'll get anymore jewelry inspiration from it. My vampire stake necklace turned out well! I owe it all to Spike.

Bella said...

This outfit is perfect. Love the layering. Also, I want that Bewitched necklace!

Gabriella said...

I love the layers of your skirt! Cool nails too!

Mina Jade said...

Like I already said, I always cut some punk hairdo for Barbies, and painted their faces green and blue. So I find these Barbies fun.
Your nail cats are fine!
And I love the grey cardigan and the black pullover (without the pink patterns, of course).

maisa said...

Oh wonderful skirt! And your nails looks awesome

Pippi said...

I love the dress! And the nails of course.

Hattie said...

ahh lovely skirty layers! I'm a fan of that when a dress is too short. I can't tell what the print is on the Prada one though, is it lipstick? Cute nails too.

Great layering!

mmh Mr.Jiles is def. my favorite character.

Isabella Nardone said...

The sweater with the "Cheer" badge is perfect! Exactly what Barbie would wear if she were getting hazed or, in this case, "voodoo-ed". Kudos to the layered skirts and whatnot...

Frockspotter said...

Haha, I would buy a voodoo Barbie! Well done for your fabulous layering (I have no idea why -- but it kind of reminds me of Rodarte!)

athenagirl said...

Great goddess, that episode was creepy.

Claire said...

This is fascinating and creepy. I love how all of the layers look, but I couldn't even imagine wearing that many myself.... I should try it sometime. You make me want to go watch Buffy.

boxmalak said...

i've been pondering what having those kind of nail decorations would be like.
looks fun.

brodie said...

One of your best references evz! That was the first ever episode of Buffy I watched (circa 1999) and any mention of parents living vicariously through their kids takes me back to that instantly.

Also, FlamingoCupcake makes the world a better place. I've got C-Love and Sid Prescott. They're different colours and since black and red go with everything, I don't ever have to take them off!

Poppy said...

voodoo barbie!! i really like your necklaces

Marnie said...

I love that ep. so much! First season Buffy is so good.

cancercowboy said...

i'd call that a 'Matryoshka outfit', mainly cause it sounds way more flattering than 'onion outfit' ^____^ perfectly executed. all these layers make you look a bit like a colourful specimen of a tube worm, maybe Lamellibrachia. i mean that in the best possible way ^________^
and watch out for the musical ep of Buffy.

Calisto Alberto said...

I loved that episode! What a great resources! Best Wishes.

Sophia Wickman said...

THAT WAS A GREAT EPISODE! Glad to find someone who appreciates the early days of the series...everyone I know thinks it only gets good when she gets to college. Great images!

Jay said...

B-e-a-utiful.

she who shall not be named; just coveted said...

i am 14 yrs old and have been watching buffy since i was six, i totally agree! haha i love it because it puts a twist on...well, everything! :) im a huge fan, i'm so proud avant-garde girls my age have a representative in the fashion world!

terrashmerra said...

This look is perfect! Buffy is an incredible resource for outfit/accessory inspiration.. I am currently obsessed with all the bubble rings worn in season 1.
You might be interested in my blog: whatbuffywore.tumblr.com. I comment on what's worn in each episode (starting from the beginning) and then put together a DIY for the weekend.

Tru said...

love buffy and your nails

Megan said...

cool spoon on the porch, and I like the cupcake effect your skirts had.

by the way YOU'RE TOTALLY GORGEOUS.

Thea M. said...

And I never thought Barbie and voodoo would be perfect together. Kudos.

mariam baurice said...

I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him here as +447053820826 or spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
more.

Sometimes,Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. in this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. one may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. that person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart. That was my experience late last year. but thank god today i am happy with him again. all thanks goes to Dr. EDIONWE, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how Dr. EDIONWE could cast a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to my self. i contacted him via email: edionwesolutiontemple@yahoo.com. words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the good news as long as i live.
