Purchase Barbie Basic # 15!

#15 Barbie Basics!
I purchased Barbie Basics #15 with hopes of redoing
him soon. He is a very cute guy but first thing I’ll have
to do is find him a new body! I can’t stand those poser
MM bodies of the Barbie Basics dolls! Come on Mattel,
get it together! Make the Basics with articulation will ya!

I am thinking about make him Asian. I already have this
face as a blond. I saw him as an OOAK Asian doll on the
doll page. I also so him redone as a Johnny Depp lookalike
too! I really liked them both. I will be looking for the right
outfits too. When he is done I will post him. Here
are a few pictures for now!

I may purchase #16 too but I’m not sure yet.

Hi,
You bought him just for the head?
I wonder what you do with the body.
I am very curious how he is going to look after you redone him.
Hugs
Maria

He's a great blank canvas. Can't wait to see what you do!

I'm going to swap him with a Johnny Depp pirate doll. I think they have the same coloring a bit better than the Harley doll.

I haven't done anything with mine either. Maybe seeing yours will inspire me to get to it. Doubtful, but one can hope. I need to search .... Ding Ding Ding. Sorry about that, but as I was typing, the answer to my body issue came to mind. I've been body swapping my girls, so why not body swap my guys the same way? That will keep me from needing to buy a body right away. Whew, glad that is resolved. He may actually get some play time now.

Vaness and Dollz4Moi, I just purchased a Fashionista Ken body to put him on! I will post pictures soon!

Thanks maria, I just got him for the head too. It so sad we have to do this. If only Mattle would ask us what they should make!

Thanks Dani. I will start with the new body first. That will inspire me.

I have a headless fashionista body sitting right here next to my computer. He doesn't work as well as I would like for Model 15. His legs don't open and he doesn't sit upright. I will be throwing my model 15 on my one of my Harley Davidson bodies when I need to use him, then swap back when I need the Harley doll. Just easier for me since I can swap heads in about 30 sec now.
