Today Marianne and I went shopping at Walmart in Cornelia, Georgia. Though I had pretty much given up on cruising the Barbie section since I hadn't found anything new in a long time, I couldn't help but to look anyway. Well, guess what I found? I couldn't believe it! Barbie Collector Red Carpet dolls at Walmart?? Really?? And for only $19.97 each?! Yeehawwww!! I couldn't contain myself. They had all four of the new dolls. I grabbed three, paid for two and Marianne gave me one.
Here they are still in their boxes. They also had the brunette in the mint green dress, but I didn't care for her as much. Here is a picture of her. I'm not sure if I'll get her in the future.
Here they are de-boxed.
I think this lady looks better than her promotional picture on Barbie Collector.com.
I think this lady is the prettiest of all of them. She reminds me of Queen Latifah, who I absolutely adore. So I decided her name will be Dana since that's the Queen's given name.
This lady also looks a little different from her promotional picture. I think she looks better in person.
Today was a great day. I scored big time finding these dolls at Walmart of all places! All three of these ladies will be re-bodied so it'll be easier for them to get around Moreville. And besides, I really hate the model muse body. Not only is it NOT poseable, it's almost anorexic-looking. I think I'll send them all to Bella Donna's for a good Italian meal! :-)
