little girls are always wanting their barbies and dolls to look just.freaking.like.them, right?? right. (this is a complete sidenote, but when i was little, my mom always struggled with finding the barbie dolls i wanted with brunette hair. they were almost always blonde! mattel has since gotten smart and is inclusive of all hair and skin colors. where was "equality for all" in the 80s?? a little too late for me, mattel!) anyways, i'm sure most of your ladies were no different. this fact is evident by the american doll company whose "create your own american doll look-alikes" have sold like hotcakes. american doll company allows little girls to create their own look-alike dolls picking the eye color, hair color and type, skin color, etc. they even sell doll clothes and little girls' clothes to match so you and your doll can be all matchy match and everyone will point and be super jealous because you were so cool. bascially, we're all narcissistic - we love attention and we love shit to look like us. plus, imitation is the highest form of flattery. even if you're a total freak, i'm sure you wouldn't mind someone creating a doll who looked just.like.you.
speaking of freaks - by now, it's no secret that i love the ga. l-o-v-e love. apparently the makers of barbie do too and i cannot tell you how jealous i am. ladies (and the few gentlemen who are so kind as to put up with some of my non-manly stuff and read my blog), i present you with eleven damn good reasons why i want to be lady g: not one, not two, but ELEVEN look-alike barbies!!!
