Okay, so I was putting off watching Barbie’s latest vlog because, as you can guess by the title, Ryan has been turned into MAN BUN KEN!
(also, if you haven’t seen the vlog, WATCH IT NOW!)
Now, I love man bun Ken. And I also love Ryan! But like, I never considered they would be the same person? Isn’t Ryan, like, Asian? IS THIS ANOTHER GRACE SITUATION WHERE THEY JUST COMPLETELY CHANGE A CHARACTER FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER??
I mean, when I think of ‘Ryan’ I think of this handsome dude from Life in the Dreamhouse.
See? Nothing like Man Bun Ken!
But other than that, this vlog is probably my favourite one yet.
But first -Ryan is sitting inappropriately close to Harper, and Ken is also sitting inappropriately close to Barbie, considering they apparently aren’t even together anymore?
I honestly have no idea what the HECK is happening now. One of the questions was ‘who is most likely to have a secret crush’ and Harper mouthed ‘Ken.’ Duh, we all know it’s Barbie, but seriously, the fact that Barbie and Ken are suddenly “not together” and “Ken has a crush on Barbie” is so BIZARRE considering they were just dating in Life in the Dreamhouse!
“Who is most likely to bring a book to a party?”
Ken: I have been to parties where Barbie has done that.
Oh gosh, this vlog is really funny. I feel like they’re actually real people? When I was watching it, I was like “damn, I want to be friends with these people!”
Harper is definitely growing on me, too, I really want them to release a new doll of her.
“Who is most likely to break a world record?”
Harper: I chose all of us! Because we’re all amazing!
Barbie: Aw, that’s so nice!
Harper: But mostly me.
In other news, have you heard of Disney-bounding?
It’s where you “dress up” as a Disney character, but, like “secretly.” You wear the same colours the character wears, and you style it in a similar way, but it’s not as ‘full on’ as cosplay.
See? The colours are the same, but you’d never look at somebody wearing that outfit and think “hey, she’s dressing up as Ariel!”
Well, I’ve decided to do the same thing -but with Barbie. I finally got around to buying a pink plaid skirt and white knee socks… Can you guess who I’m going to be?
Yes, that’s right! Blair Willows! I absolutely LOVE Barbie: Princess Charm School and I think it’s going to be so much fun to dress up like Blair! My hair is brown, not blonde, but I don’t think that’s a big deal. Again, it’s far from cosplaying, it’s just a “casual” replica of their aesthetic.
In other news, I found this HILARIOUS Tumblr about Life in the Dreamhouse. Just take a read, you won’t regret it! (well, unless you haven’t seen the show)
“Skipper is Tumblr. If you even think about making an Ashley Katchadourian joke, you can just leave the fandom right now, seriously get out of here before you’re hanged.”
Oh gosh. I just love this fandom. It’s so crazy. I love how there are so many different aspects to Barbie -for example, I bet some people who collect dolls have never seen the films, and how there are some people who don’t collect dolls, but have seen every episode of Life in the Dreamhouse, and stuff like that. It just makes me happy, y’know? We’re like a big family, all connected by a multimillion-dollar company who is just looking to make a profit off of our love!
Well, that took a different turn than expected.
Finally, I spotted two of the mini furniture packs at my local Kmart the other day -the hammock one, and the pet playset one. They were $15 each, but I didn’t buy either. If I had seen them at the start of 2017, I would have picked them up immediately, but now, in August, I just don’t care anymore. I don’t need that kind of stuff.
Anyway, this blog post was a bit different to usual but I just wanted to share a pile of things I thought were interesting.
