Gods, Goddesses and… Barbies?!

A couple of weeks ago we were sorting out the garage and mum and I came across all my old Barbies. The last couple of days I’ve been washing their clothes and wondering how many of them I’ll keep. I gave up Barbies a loooong time ago, but I came across a couple I thought would make a good Freyja and Sigyn, as well as a John Smith (from Pocahontas) who would probably make a good Loki, and another perhaps for Freyr, and I thought I wonder whether many people use them as God/Goddess substitutes instead of statues… Quite a few, it would seem, going by the wonders of a well-known search engine. Apart from the custom ones, some of which were very beautiful, I came across some actually made by Mattel that I would be tempted to buy if they had them over here for a decent price. Anyways, I thought I’d share a couple of the pics with a suggestion for a few of them:

If I could have any it would be this one, ‘Fantasy Goddess of the Americas’. Look at that costume! I’ve always been fascinated by costumes, sometimes I watch films for that reason alone.

Faraway Forest Elf Barbie – good Celtic vibe to her, plus I love Elves.
