We had a blast at the Altered Barbie Art Show hosted by Happy Delusions, a craft boutique in Renton (just south of Seattle). When Mary the owner did an open call for Barbie artists around town, she received tons of responses from painters, sculptors, and crafters. She even landed some lovely Barbie-themed models (pictured below), along with one 22-foot Barbie art piece that couldn’t quite fit inside the store (yours truly).
I was invited by the Pacific Northwest’s Pin-up Queen and car model extraordinaire, Kitty Mansfield. She’s the pretty lady wearing the traditional Barbie bathing suit in the photo below.
It was fun posing with all the Barbies (and a Skipper, shown above), and I got some updated shots for my portfolio as well.
All photos were taken by Stacey Ryan Farrar, best photographer ever and all around amazingly sweet and wonderful guy.
