Look Out Barbie: Remarkable Man Refashions Dolls Into Real-Life Icons

As a girl, I loved my Barbies, but was often annoyed that the heroines I loved in movies and TV were so rarely made into doll form. And when they did, they were too often unrecognizable and ugly, like that weird Vanna White doll grandma thought was just too precious not to purchase from QVC. But for all of us who yearned for fashion dolls of the bold women who helped fashion our lives, artist and doll maker Cyguy has arrived to be our champion. Behold the beauties he’s been crafting, inspired by queens of film, television, and music.


Just in time for Feud, Bette has arrived to announce, “Fasten your seatbelts! It’s going to be a bumpy night!”

NEW!
