As you can see, at least the makers of the doll have taken their time with the design. The cupcake skirt is pretty intricate (not to mention, making us hungry). We learn from the website that the doll “features 70 hand-painted, mini-cupcakes, a candy-colored glitter-kissed bodice and fishnet stockings dotted with shimmering Swarovski crystals.” So okay, then. This isn’t your mother’s Malibu Barbie.
We must commend Mattel for choosing this look, reminiscent of the candy colors of Katy’s California Dreams tour, over, say, Katy’s look from the “E.T.” video. (Though a Kathy Beth Terry Barbie would be pretty sweet.)
If you happen to have a few grand to drop on a cupcake-adorned Katy Perry Barbie doll, be our guest and bid here.
