Clams on the Half-Shell Review -August 2010

Clams on the What?? This month’s tableau is a Barbie homage to Bette Midler.  Once upon a time… Bette and the Harlettes did a stage show much like this!  Mermaids!!  Mermaids in wheelchairs!!  And the happy audience!  Show Biz!!!

    God-I love it! What a hoot! Just when I think you cannot possibly get more creative, you do! Just when I think I know which B.T. is my favorite, I see a new one and have a new favorite! That jeweled, beaded work is too much!

  2. Paloma Mankus says:

    I LOVED IT!!! You do AWSOME outfits everytime! Their always great. I hope you keep doing this your really creative about eveything!

    • Thanks, Paloma,

      I really enjoy thinking of new ways to display the Barbies. The outfits this month are almost all by Mattel–with some hand made by other doll fans.

  3. Judith,

    I adore mermaids.
    Barbie never looked so good!

  4. I especially love the gold ones…the costumes remind me of Claudette Colbert’s “Cleopatra”!

    Smashing, and so reminiscent of Bette’s show. I know she would love it. The colors! The shimmer!! The fins!!!

  6. Oh, the fins!
