Another Barbie Face Guide Online - For BDE et al.

Black Doll Collecting blogger DBG asked for information on more recent head molds. I found one site that has Barbie head molds AND the dolls that use those face molds. The site is called, "Model Muse Wiki." Felicity K is the chief moderator. She and her team of doll enthusiasts have even added the new Stephen Burrows Pazette doll to their head mold list. Impressive, huh?

If there is any other Barbie face mold website - other than Katti's - please share that news. Nice to pool our resources. Thanks in advance.

Say, how many of you knew that the Mattel Joan Jett, Cleopatra, and Zac Posen's sister dolls share the same face mold as Nichelle? Can Mattel work their face paint magic, or not? Uh oh, I hope there isn't a surge of collectors denouncing the authenticity of Nichelle as a Black doll. Naughty me, hahaha.

Hi D7ana,

The ModelMuse Barbie face database is very helpful. It is nice to see which dolls share the same head sculpt using this particular body. I agree that Mattel's make-up artists are excellent at creating several looks using one head sculpt.

I appreciate the time you took to find this specialized Barbie face database and post it. I am still in need of a general updated all-Barbie family face database. If you become aware of one, please share.

Thanks again!

Hi Pam, DBG, and Marta. Thanks for commenting. Different people bring different things to our doll knowledge. I'll keep an eye out for a Barbie-face mold database ;-)
