What, no Malibu Stacey Barbie?

Sure, Scarlett O'Hara Barbie is lovely, and yeah, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz Barbie is cute, but for my money, it's hard to beat Marge Simpson Barbie, Medusa Barbie, or Dominatrix Barbie. The full collection, located here, clearly owes a debt to Todd Haynes, and the Barbie Liberation Army, but is still worth a chuckle.

I've always thought Barbie belongs in the kitchen myself.

Barbie's not alone. Homer has a few alter egos.

Being that I once spent an entire summer turning a bunch of Barbies into The Endless from Sandman, I am in awe over the amount of work they put into these dolls.

And it makes me want to get a bunch of Barbies and start all over again.

Katemonkey, you are my hero. If this person had put their effort and skills into making a Barbie version of The Endless, this collection would be infinitely cooler than it currently is.

These links are lots of fun - but methinks I hear a buzzing and whirring sound in the sky - look! It's Mattel's lawyers!

Hmmmm. Looked for a Tank Girl Barbie but this is the closest I could get.
