Their Fashions Are Terrible!

This is a satire!

It´s based on the song “Your makeup is terrible” by Alaska Thunderfuck 5000.

Thank you Alaska for that song. I simply couldn´t resist!

When I started to work with 16″ dolls a few years ago, I didn´t imagine, I would ever go back to Barbies or 12″ dolls in common.

But one should never say never and I had to change my mind, when the first Made to Move and BMR1959 dolls came to the market.

Their articulation is great, they come in different sizes and skin tones and a few of them are (to my opinon) the most beautiful dolls Mattel ever made! They became some of my favorites. TF8

But there´s something, I don´t go along with …Sorry… But THEIR FASHIONS ARE TERRIBLE! (That´s my personal oppinion. Others might love them!)

I´ve never seen anyone wearing clothing like that in public, no matter where I went in this world.  Not even in the 90s.

I remember vaguely a fashion show, some years ago, where models wore similar things. But that was only a designer´s dream. Not meant for reality.

The quality of the fashions is a bit better than the usually Barbie clothes. But the patterns and colors are extremely mismatched and some of the pieces don´t even fit the dolls.

The jacket for the petite for example,  is much to big and actually fits the standard dolls. Some of the sleeves are far to long and the cap for the blonde Tall is to small, to hold on the head. And the shirt for the Latino girl actually fits the Kens much better.

So it´s curtains up again!

 

“I don´t know about you, little Miss Streetwear, but my fashions do sooooo much more for me than yours…That´s an issue that´s recently came to my attention and we should discuss it right now!

YOUR FASHION IS TERRIBLE!”

“So, WHO do you say you are? The “Fashion Police”? And you want my ID?

Listen, this outift is my ID!”

TF11

Her fashion is TERRIBLE! Her Fashion is TERRIBLE! But I love her anyway!

TF12

THEIR FASHIONS ARE TERRIBLE! THEIR FASHIONS ARE TERRIBLE!

TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE!

But we love them anyway!

TF14

“We´re always been proud, to have the best fashion store in all the land…

Hope, that´s correct…

Well, it better be, because we have some cases of really bad fashions here to care for!”

TF15

THEIR FASHIONS ARE TERRIBLE! THEIR FASHIONS ARE TERRIBLE!

But we love them anyway!

TF16

I wanted to be fair about it, so I tried to combine some of the clothing in a different way…It worked on 4 outfits at least, the rest simply can´t be combined with other BMR fashions. But is that really satisfying?

I´m not so sure! Decide for yourself!

TF17

I confess, I´m waiting for Wave 3 of the BMR1959 to come in 2021…I hope for some more Kens, maybe a second Curvy or another Petite in different skin tones….But I also hope for fashions, that will enjoy us and give us the feeling, that buying them is worth it, instead of keeping us annoyed.

Since then, I store my dolls clothing away and they have to go with FR12 fashions and the humble things, I sew myself.
