Maria is really Barbie's sister Stacie,from the Let's Camp! gift set.
Let's Camp! was a Toys R Us exclusive.
|I had to make Tammy an eye patch. It wouldn't stay in place, so it had to be tethered to her ponytail!|
|Maria's costume is the dress borrowed from a Moxie Girlz Snow White,a cape from who knows where, and the shoes are from a Harry Potter Hermione.|
It was sold in 2001.
|I was never a pirate for Halloween, but it's the kind of thing I would have been. I never wanted to be the princess. I wanted to be the adventurer sort. Fuzzy was a pirate one year.|
|This is Maria's sister Marcie, who is the Kelly from Let's Camp!.|
|Stacie and Kelly both had the same head sculpts as the Caucasian versions, but Barbie was a different sculpt.|
|Maria and Tammy and a few siblings trick or treating. Gareth World wanted to be a pirate too.|
I had plans for a more complicated Halloween shoot, but when Ken left for work I suddenly realized it was almost time for trick or treat. I had about a half an hour to take my pictures and get the Halloween candy opened and in a bowl,and get my chair around front to hand the candy out.
I've only been handing candy out the last three years,(And one year I forgot! I was used to not being home on Halloween because we'd have the kids out trick or treating, so it slipped my mind until it was too late. I felt really bad about that.) Our kids went trick or treating for all those years, and people handed candy out to them,so I feel I'm now paying back by handing candy out to this generation of kids.
Of course, you question it when you get kids like one I had tonight. I gave her a pumpkin pie Kit Kat and she said "Ugh!". I could have thought,"You're rude and unappreciative, so lump it." Instead I said,"Oh,don't you like those?" This kid, who had to be at least 6,because she already had grown up front teeth, said,"No. Me don't like pumpkin." *Sigh.* So we saddled her sister with the pumpkin pie and she went home with strawberry and regular mini Kit Kats.
See you tomorrow.
