Barbie Wednesday




Hello friends!
Today I thought I would show you a few of my favorite Halloween Barbies throughout the years!

In 1963, Mattel released, 'Masqurade' #944. A cute yellow and black costume for Barbie. Mattel also created a matching version for Skipper and a coordinating costume for Ken.

I love these Pirate costumes for Barbie and Ken from 1998.


This Barbie and Kelly set from 1996 is so sweet!


This Boo-tiful Barbie came out in 2004 and I added her to my collection.



Barbie costumes have become popular in the last few years with the option to be, 'Solo in the Spotlight barbie', '60's Barbie' or 'Prom Date Ken'.



Wishing you a day of fun, Lindsey

I got my new Avon catalog today & they are selling a very pretty Barbie in a pink, blue, & white dress. It's on sale now. Love your Halloween Barbies!

Those Barbie costumes remind me of reviews of Barbie conventions, where middle aged too fat women didn't hesitate to show up as 'Solo in the Spotlight' or worse. I wonder if there still are any conventions after the decline of Barbie Bazaar, mmm you might know that....
Enjoy your collection, happy Halloween!

I have been trying to put together that original masquerade set for my dolls I have Ken's complete outfit so far. I also just received the Pirate set in mint condition. I need to get Kelly's pumpkin outfit because we made that costume for my daughters when they were little.
I look forward to your weekly posts
