Post Apocolyptic Barbie (and friends)
Well a special thanks goes to Marianne for lending me the Margaret Atwood Book "The Year of the Flood." I had had this barbie head sitting around for a while, I think I even blogged about it but didn't know what to do with it and then it hit me while reading this book. I would create an assemblage of cast off dolls that had survived being sent to the dump.
The doll on the left, I bought at a thrift store in Caldwell for a quarter. Someone had cut off all its hair and looked like she really needed a second life. She is riding on a giant fly. The doll in the center I found in the street and someone had run over it and its head was split open- it really did need another life, he is riding on a giant lizard. Barbies body is a dinosaur body. Now the three are all happy to be together gleaning and foraging in the wasteland that is left of our planet earth. And yes, that is a real snakeskin that someone gave me from their pet snake.
