Birthday Fashionistas

Six Mattel Fashionistas reached me on my birthday this year. Can you guess which ones by the soles of their feet?

No? Okay, I'll show them in pairs. The first two are Ken Fashionista #8 Camo Comeback and Barbie Fashionista #60 Patchwork Denim. He is so gorgeous. I love his Roman nose. I don't think there has been a Ken with such a nose before him. Maybe Romeo Ken? Maybe.

Penny became related to Bill on arrival. I thought that they had a similar, Eurasian look. Siblings. I like her hair color. Sassy orange. She looks fun and friendly. She's wearing her "Raggedy Ann" dress. I look forward to finding something else for her to wear.

Next pair are Ken Fashionista #9 Plaid on Point and Ken Fashionista #12 Chill in Check. Number 9 is another friendly face. I see him as a Felix. Easy-going and lucky. He's standing next to #12 to show the slight height and width differences between the new Slim build and the new Broad builds. 

Number 12 reminded me of an Agatha Raisin character, Bill Wong. Only my Bill Wong is not going to be a policeman, AND he is not an only child. 

Now my last pair for today are Ken Fashionista #10 Classic Cool and the blond, curly-haired, fair-skinned, Desiree-faced Barbie Fashionista from 2014. Number 10 is Curtis. I like his cornrows - although I agree with some collectors that some scalp needs to show between those rows - and his soft, full mouth.

Surprised about the 2014 Fashionista? Yay, I finally got her. I thought I could "settle" with the red-haired, curvy Pop Star Barbie. No. I still wanted this one and her necklace.

Ken Fashionista #8 Camo Comeback is Harold aka "Shy Hal"
Barbie Fashionista #60 Patchwork Denim is Penny Wong, younger sister of Bill
Ken Fashionista #9 Plaid on Point is Felix
Ken Fashionista #12 Chill in Check is Bill Wong, Penny's older brother
Ken Fashionista #10 Classic Cool is Curtis
Barbie Fashionista is Lenore 

So those are the Barbie/Ken Fashionistas I chose to receive on my birthday.  Do you have or want any of these dolls?
