BPR Contest Runner Up: "Lil' Abner Appalachian My Scene Barbie"
MK was at his bitchy best judging the "All Dolled Up" challenge. He gave perhaps his best line of the season commenting on Raymundo's Barbie: "She looked like Barefoot Appalachian Lil' Abner Barbie". This has provided all of us with months of amusement at BPR.
digibelle100 has put a lot of thought into what exactly such a Barbie would look like. Here's her description:
"She's a hot number in her denim and eyelet mini skirt and cut top she threw together using one of granny's old quilts. And those boots are made for walking and some serious stomping down the runway! She comes with several great outfits, including her 'Rich White Trash' T- shirt and those white pumps that you KNOW she will be wearing after Labor Day. Don't forget the Hillbilly cell phone so she can call Daisy Mae and all her other 'My Scene' friends in the forest."
Let's go to the judges:
Laura K: Okay, if this was actually in production I would totally buy it. Mattel? Hello?
Tbone: I could see a whole cottage industry built around accessories alone for this Barbie. Love the detail. This one looks like it took a lot of time to finish.
Scarlett: MK said that the inspiration Barbie was a "little bit sad." This Barbie has all sorts of joie de vie. J'adore the tablecloth reference, too.
Well done, digibelle100!
