Did you grow up playing with Barbie dolls? Many of us who didn’t have them played with other dolls and pretended they were Barbies anyway, because Barbies were just so cool. Barbie has been a household name for over 50 years, and many generations of children have grown up sharing their adventures with this classic doll and her friends. Although Barbie is criticized by some as a shallow fashionista, that’s not how we saw her. Barbie has had over 200 careers throughout the years! We imagined her as a character that could do or be anything, and she inspired us to be anything we wanted as well.
Even though our Barbies were veterinarians, astronauts, athletes, moms, and anything else that we could imagine, we still liked picking out their outfits and doing their hair. Now, as adults, rather than styling our Barbie dolls (which we might still do from time to time), we get to style ourselves! When we were kids, we used our imaginations to make Barbie into whatever we wanted her to be. Now you can use the same imaginative spirit and direct it toward your Halloween costume instead! If you want to dress up as Barbie, you can choose from plenty of iconic looks, or create your own new career for her. You can be Malibu Barbie with a blue swimsuit, yellow towel, and pink sunglasses. A pink dress and feather boa will imitate Superstar Barbie perfectly, and a pale leather jacket and cowboy hat will make you look just like Western Barbie.
We have plenty of costumes and accessories to help you look like you belong in a Dreamhouse of your own! You’ll be instantly recognizable in a Great Shape Barbie costume just like the one featured in Toy Story 3. Of course, you can always make your own signature Barbie look as well. Just make sure you add a blonde wig and a pair of heels, and you’ll be ready to go! And of course, we can’t forget about Ken. Barbie’s longtime boyfriend always looks good in a Flower Disco Shirt and a styled blonde or brunette wig. If the look you come up with is meant for display, not play, try a Barbie Box costume! You can even make it an out of the box couple’s look with one for Ken as well, so you can create your own perfect Barbie and Ken Halloween costume. And just like Barbie is always trying new things, so are we! Make sure to check back often to see what new Barbie fashions we have in store for you.
We hope that you’ll enjoy being Barbie just as much as you enjoyed playing with Barbies! When you embody the spirit of Barbie, you can explore new fashion options, try different careers, and have a lot of fun wherever you go. Now, are you ready? Let’s go party!
