Halloween with "Barbie"

Halloween is kind of a big deal for our family.  Each year since Stella's second Halloween we have chosen a theme and all worn costumes.  Through the years we have been a kitten and two veterinarians, Princess (Cinderella) and the Pea, characters from the children's book Petite Rouge, characters from The Wizard of Oz, and characters from Peter Pan.  This year our theme was Toy Story, and Stella did not take much convincing to agree to go as Barbie...
This Barbie look is inspired by a 1983 doll named "Great Shape Barbie"...
We were able to order the unitard and leg warmers online, and she already had the belt, but the shoes presented a bit of a problem.  We could not find any pink high heels for a girl her size, so we bought a black pair covered in fabric and painted them pink.  It took several coats of paint to achieve this color...

Sassiest Barbie on the block!
