Attack Of The 50 Foot Barbie!

Here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa, everyone is welcome, even if you can’t possibly enter the spa doors! So it was for our next client. A statuesque beauty, “My Size” Barbie had a request of gigantic proportions. She dreamed of a retro look, harkening back to the glory years of her past, the early 1960’s.

I knew there were going to be challenges right away due to her size. Firstly, she would never fit into any of our stylists chairs and you could also forget about sticking that big head into our petite pink wash bowl! Though she could have easily reached down and torn the roof off the spa, much like “The Attack Of The Fifty Foot Woman!” she was a dear and let the staff tend to her out back in the parking lot. Many cars had to be moved!

After her Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body, “M.S.” Barbie had her hair washed, conditioned and de-tangled, which by the way was quite a chore since she’d been roaming around for many years, obviously without a hairbrush. We did our best to capture the classic ponytail hairstyle even though she wasn’t rooted for it at all. And talk about hard to curl hair, this gal had a head full!

With her hair finally styled, it was now time to move on to her face. As she requested, I drew inspiration from the classic Barbie look. I shaped her brows and filled them in with the appropriate shade. Happy with the results, I moved on to her eyes. She obviously didn’t have the molded lids, in fact she had rooted lashes, but I did my best to give her the vintage Barbie gaze, eyes to the right. And of course we had to have the blue shadow!  The finishing touch was of course her lips, which were now fuller and a deep red shade instead of the pretty pink she started with. After a mani & pedi with Madge she’s ready for her debut!

A first for the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa, may we present our biggest client ever, Miss “My Size” Barbie, a modern girl with a retro twist!

From the imagination of Kym and standing over 3 feet high, here is her vintage inspired “My Size” Barbie doll. Kym plans on sewing her new gal a replica of the classic black & white striped swimsuit. I hope she’ll be able to find her the perfect mules! Perhaps she will send the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa a photo when she’s finished that we can share with our readers!

To Braid Or Not To Braid, That Is The Question!

From the collection of Debbi!

Sometimes a dolls past and present just can’t seem to separate themselves. Like a braided ponytail, they just happily intertwine with each other. This was the case with our next Pink Bubbles Doll Spa client.

 She actually arrived a little early for her appointment and as a reward from punctuality-obsessed Vera, wasn’t made to wait the extra fifteen minutes before being escorted to my station. As you all know by now, Vera runs a very tight ship when it comes to her appointment book. Early or on-time arrivals will always find a quite charming receptionist, while tardy clients more than likely come face-to-face with the cool and curt version, no matter what their excuses may be. A sort of Dr. Jekyll & Ms. Hyde situation comes to mind! If you knew Vera as well as I do, you’d understand. She has always kept everything in her life in very tidy order. Her home, children and of course, all three of her ex-husbands! So please, if you can, be on time!

My new client was a very pretty girl, though I will admit, quite disheveled. I would imagine any of us would be in this same state had we experienced her adventures. She certainly had an interesting past, that’s for sure! According to her, for more years than she cares to remember, she had been forced to live a perpetual childhood, her head stuck on a Skipper body! She doesn’t recall how it happened, but I would guess she was caught up in a head-swapping situation with her childhood owner. I’ve seen it many times here in the spa. Viewed by other dolls, including handsome Ken, as “just a kid”, she had nearly given up hope for a normal life. Luckily, she joined her new friend Debbi’s collection and was able to finally grow-up again and regained her womanly curves with a body replacement. Now it was time to take her transformation a step further with an appointment at Pink Bubbles!

When it came time to discuss hairstyle options, she wasn’t sure whether to keep her braided ponytail she’d worn for years or have it smoothed. I liked the charming braided look myself. It was a very cute look and really flattered her. But would the style be too much of a reminder of her unique past, too childish for her now that she had finally regained her new figure? In fact, she was going to visit Beatrice in our Fashion Boutique later and couldn’t wait to try on some lovely new dresses. Would the braid be right with her new wardrobe, she wondered? After quite a bit of a discussion it was decided she would keep it.

With the decision made, she enjoyed a well deserved Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body and then had her hair washed, conditioned and untangled with the assistance of our shampoo girl Daffy. They both seemed to really liked each other right away and I heard much laughter coming from the back. Daffy’s been a great new addition to our staff here at The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa and our customers evidently agree as she receives wonderful reviews on the pink comment cards Vera gives our guests. I do hope she stays on here at the spa, even if she finally achieves her dream of becoming an actress. I guess we’ll see!

When my client returned, I was ready to proceed with her hair. I began by pulling her hair straight back and gave her a wrapped top-knot ponytail. I separated and re-braided the hair. The ends were then curled and set and then a pretty white ribbon was selected to finish the style. I fluffed up her bangs and voila! Everyone agreed the braided ponytail was a cute take on the classic style and I think she’s really happy she kept it. It sets her apart and makes her beautifully unique! I then repaired her make-up while Madge tended to her nails.

Though this young gal endured an accidental extended childhood, she’s now ready to move on to the next chapter in her life. I can’t wait to see her in a lovely dress and heels. And with that new figure of hers, I’m sure she’ll never be mistaken by Ken for a little girl ever again!

bpt2Debbi’s pretty doll really enjoyed her long-awaited “grown-up” day at the spa! She started with the Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. She had her braided ponytail hairstyle refreshed and selected a pretty white ribbon to finish it. Her eyebrows, lids and lips were also redone. Madge provided the matching polish for her nails. Beatrice was happy to assist her in choosing the “Safety-First” earrings she wears, secretly hoping our gal will choose a new dress from the Pink Bubbles Fashion Boutique to go with them!

 
 

“Here She Comes…Miss So & So!”

From the collection of Robin!

 Hello readers and welcome back! You all remember Barb don’t you? The Blonde Bubble with the migraines and a fondness for the Apple-tini’s. Yeah, you know her. (If it’s still a little fuzzy or if you’re a little fond of the Apple-tini’s yourself, put down your glass and go back and check out her story. It’s the very first post we shared here on our site. Go ahead and refresh your memory as well as your drink! Bring us all one while you’re at it! We’ll wait…oh, back already, good! ) Well anyway, Barb carried through with her threat and finally sent one of her daughters over to see us here at The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa. It was her older girl, the former beauty title winner.

 She came in about 11:30 this morning and get this, was in full formal attire, yes that early! I’m telling you, full length gray brocade dress with silver lame sash, matching evening cloak, clutch  and heels. Very beautiful yes, but a lot to take in before lunch. Surprisingly, Vera didn’t say anything about her oddly timed ensemble at all, just scanned her appointment book and highlighted her name with her signature bright pink marker. As long as you make and keep your appointments, Vera’s a happy woman!

“Welcome to Pink Bubbles!” I said, leading her over to our pink satin consultation settee as we both sat down, “How can I help you today?” From her attire, I half expected her to open her clutch and whip out a sash that said “Miss So & So – 1965” and you know what, she did! I’m not kidding, along with an old newspaper clipping.

  “Here, look!” she said excitedly as she handed me the clipping. “Seems like only yesterday, of course I was a bit younger then.” (No kidding, weren’t we all!) “My Mother made this very dress for me and it stole the show that night!” she exclaimed as she tapped the clipping (with a very chipped manicure I noted by the way,) “I was the winner hands down!” she exclaimed, wide-eyed. (Yes, she was wearing the same dress now as she was in the clipping. I agree it was odd, but don’t judge people!)

 “When Daddy left us, I kinda lost my zip,” she continued, “just hung up my sash and quit the pageant circuit. Who knows, maybe I could have gone all the way, Miss America even… anyway, when Mother got back from her visit here she says it was almost like a miracle. You do such great work, I swear she practically looked like a new doll!”

“I thought I might give it a try too. I’ve decided it’s time for me to get out of the house, you know, maybe enter a few local pageants again, just for a lark of course! Can you help me?” I saw a spark in her eye and knew she wasn’t kidding. This girl, just like her mother Barb, needed a fresh start and by golly I was going to try to give it to her if I could! “My dear, that sounds like a wonderful plan,” I told her as I steered her towards my station, “but first we should fix you up a bit.” “Maybe we can try for something like this!” she said hopefully as she pushed the clipping towards me again. “Yes, just like this!” I said as I tucked it up on my mirror for reference.

I then handed her off to Daphie who assisted her with a Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. When she returned, I got to work. I took my time with her hair and make-up, carefully copying what I saw in the old photo. When I finally finished, I stood back to view the results. “Daphie, come over her!” I called. She quickly joined me and we both gazed at her reflection. “Well?” I asked her. “All I can say is Wow! Honey, you look like a dream!” Daphie told the fresh-faced beauty. Folks, I kid you not, my new client looked exactly the same as she did so many years ago in the clipping! Like she went back in a time machine somehow.

Needless to say she was thrilled. “I can’t tell you how happy I am!” she said smiling with moist eyes. “Only one thing left to do!” I told her and reached over to the sash that was folded on her lap. I placed it over her head and adjusted it perfectly. “There!” I said. Brimming with a new confidence, she thanked us both again for our work, then walked over to an astonished Vera who was standing in the foyer. She paid her bill and then put on her cloak. With a final turn at the door she bid us all adieu with a queenly wave and regal smile.

Well, all I can say is, when you got good bones and a vinyl face like this gal had, the rest is easy! Look out Bert Parks, here she comes!

Her make-up was then refreshed and “Safety-First” earrings were added at the helpful suggestion of dear Beatrice. She wears a lavish gown that was made by Robin’s own Mother for her when she was a little girl. What a treasure! Lights, camera and action! She’s ready for the crown Mr. Parks!

The Newest Graduate of The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa Swan Program Debuts!

P.B.D.S. Client – #0017

From the collection of the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!

It was a rainy afternoon and business had been slow all day at the spa. The dolls in this town tend to stay indoors in weather like this. Even a quick dash to the market could turn a girls “hair-do” into a tragic “hair-don’t!” Most gals just aren’t willing to venture out, even to keep an appointment with us on a day like this. After all, who wants to see their fresh new looks go swirling down the storm drain! I can’t say I blamed them, but all the cancellations were a bit disappointing.

With not much to do, I decided to spend my free time helping Beatrice in the gift shop unpacking and organizing our newest selection of lipsticks and nail polishes. We had just finished up and were about ready for our lunch break when I heard the beauty chimes go off in the entry. Moments later, Vera our receptionist, came bounding towards us exclaiming much too loudly that we had a beauty emergency out front and I needed to get out there, but quick! I do wish she’d keep her voice down because a reaction like that to a customer just isn’t professional!

I walked out and greeted our latest guest with a warm “Hello, welcome to Pink Bubbles!” Now dear readers, I must confess I may have been a bit hasty judging our Vera’s over-reaction. The tragic, wet thing was clearly in a state of beauty distress! I didn’t know if it was the bad weather or in fact a very hard life that had done the poor girl in, but I suspect it was a combination of both, mostly the latter.

One thing I did know for sure was that this poor creature was a perfect candidate for our new Pink Bubbles Doll Spa Swan program! It’s rare that a client needs “the works” to this extent, but in her case I had no choice but to recommend the program to her. She was eager to embrace a change and happily accepted my proposal. Our work began!

For those of you who may not know, a Pink Bubbles Swan is a girl who’s looks have long ago faded and without our help are very unlikely to return with just a “rest cure” recommended by her doctor. She’s been labeled an “ugly duckling,”  a cast-off whose glory days of charm and beauty were long ago sacrificed on the battlegrounds of childhood play. For her, looking into a mirror is best done with quick peeks, as not to startle herself! After years of selfless service with children, she’s fortunately landed on our spa’s doorstep looking for a fresh start, and our staff are here to provide her just that, a new beginning.

Though it may be hard to believe your eyes, this is in fact the same little doll who entered our spa that rainy afternoon.  After years of service to children long grown and with the desire to begin anew, this lovely doll is proud to claim her new title: Swan!

Presenting the second graduate of the

Pink Bubbles Doll Spa Swan program!

Her journey begins. Sometimes it’s just best to start at the beginning, and for our Swan candidate that meant going back as far as we could go. Beyond her roots!

She first underwent the drastic measure of having her hair completely removed. Years of over-enthusiastic hair play had left her tresses broken and frizzed beyond repair. Then a thorough cleansing utilizing our own Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body removed years of dirt and grime. She’s now fresh as a daisy! Tired of the “Blah” blonde, our Swan then requested a lovely shade of red hair as she wanted to embrace change to the fullest extent! But first things first, she received a coat of new red flocking for her scalp as the foundation before we began.

jm 1897a

 As collectors know, #4 ponytails were originally issued in only blonde or brunette hair shades. She is now a special redheaded version and that makes her all the more lovely and unique! The results were well worth it as you can see by the photo below!

 She then visited our stylish Pink Bubble’s Fashion Boutique and was dressed in the fabulous “Let’s Play Barbie” Garden Party reproduction, complete with gloves and matching heels. It was a perfect choice for her, complementing her new red tresses perfectly! To top it all off, the ever helpful and commissioned Beatrice knew exactly what she needed to finish the presentation, a lovely suite of “Safety-First!” pearl jewelry!

(I’m not saying! I don’t want anybody’s Mother getting a call from Harper Valley Social Services!)

 You know kids don’t worry much about their appearance. They just run wild and have fun. It’s their job! But it is Mom’s job to worry about it, unless she wants a curt telephone call and a sit-down “meet ‘n greet” with Harper Valley social services, courtesy of a filed report by that old bitty next door who’s plate glass window was broken out by an errant baseball. You all know the type!

 Now I’m not one to judge, but from the looks of it, these tyke’s have been playing for over 40 years already without a bath. I’m not getting all up in any ones parenting skills now, but let’s just face it, I think it was time they cleaned up a bit, don’t you!

 Skipper, Skooter and Ricky definitely needed, we’ll say,  a little grooming. Skipper is the oldest and probably knows a little more than Skooter or Ricky on the subject. But if she is setting an example for them, it’s getting lost in translation somewhere along the way!

 Not in too bad of shape, Skipper basically just needed a good bath and her hair done. Skooter on the other hand was really going for that urchin in the street “Les Miserables” vibe.  Ricky, well he’s just another story altogether. I swear when he walked in to the spa, I thought he was a little lost hobo. All that was missing was a cigar stub hanging from his lips and a bottle of Hooch!

 All in all, it was an easy job. Mom dropped them off and told Vera she had to run a few errands. Vera then led them straight to me cause she didn’t want any part of it. I guess Mama sort of got that two-for-one deal going on today, grooming services AND babysitter all in one! I didn’t mind though. They were little angels. But I do hope one of those errands she’s running involves a stop at Sears for some new outfits! Or at least a box of Tide from Kroger’s! I’m just saying!

 Well, here they are, all spruced up and ready for their class pictures!

Skipper, Skooter and little Ricky! Now ain’t they sweet!

This cute trio came in with little dirty face’s only a Mother could love! They each of course had a date with Mr. Bubble! They all were given a thorough Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Skipper and Skooter both had their hair washed, conditioned and set. Skooter was given pretty red ribbons for her pigtail’s. She also received a fresh lip paint. Ricky was also given a fresh lip paint as well as some touch-ups on his hair. Now it’s your turn Mom, bring on that Tide!

This sticky sweet southern belle walked right in off the street and asked our receptionist Vera if she could make change for the parking meter out front. I happened to be passing through the lounge when I spotted her. A pretty blonde wearing a gorgeous Swiss-dotted pink dress with frothy white lace trim, white gloves and the cutest little straw bag. “You’re such a doll!” she said to Vera as she handed her the dollar bill. “Hon, I just got a mess of errands to tend to today.” Vera stared back at her, as if completely entranced by her face, squinting her eyes. Now sometimes I know when I need to diffuse a situation, especially with Vera! Before she had a chance to speak, (I sometimes swear Vera doesn’t have a filter from her brain to her mouth,) I inserted myself into the conversation. “My, it must be hot out there!” I said, stopping at Vera’s desk. “Really?” she said, turning my way looking surprised. “Why I find it just about perfect outside, cool even.”  “Well you just seem, uh, a bit moist is all.” I replied, giving Vera the fish eye. “I prefer dewey!” she said. “To tell you the truth, I do have quite the oily complexion, I’m constantly havin’ to powder my, well, my everything, I take after my Mama!” she laughed. “I wish I could find the right powder, but nothing seems to help.” I took the four quarters from Vera and steered her to safety.

 “Well you do know where you are don’t you sweetie? This is the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!”

“It is? Well what do ya know about that. I must drive by here at least twice a week, I didn’t realize.” She said. “Yes. We’re a full service spa. Perhaps you have some time right now for a consultation?” I asked. “Why I reckon I do!” she replied.

 Such a sweet girl, but in need of a little help. Besides her “Dewy-ness” issue, I noticed right away she had some previous work done on her brows and lips that needed fixing. Her hair needed some attention too. “I think you’ll be very happy with the results.” I told her. “Then let’s get on with it!” she said, smiling. And we did. When we finished she gazed at herself in my mirror and cried, “I do declare, you my dear are heaven-sent! Consider me a regular!”

 The ever-helpful Beatrice from our gift shop waited just out of view with her ever-present tray of earrings. (I did tell you she works on commission!) As if on cue, she presented her selection. Our sweet southern lass selected a pair of “Safety-First!” pearl earrings. “These are perfect, I just have to have them!” she said. A smiling Beatrice whipped out her sales book. Gotta love a girl with ambition!

 As she left, shine free by the way, she stopped at Vera’s desk to book an appointment for the following month. Looking the way she did now, I relaxed, knowing Vera had very little to say!

She enjoyed a relaxing mani & pedi from our in-house manicurist, whose famous in her own right by the way, Madge!

Separated at birth? A horrible Karen Black flashback? No, relax everyone, it’s just Jaime’s transitional #3 Barbie doll!

 When she walked into the spa, it was like she stepped out of a dream, or more precisely, a nightmare! She instantly reminded me of that 70’s made-for-tv fright fest “Trilogy of Terror”. (If you haven’t seen it, rent it!) Her black hair was a fright wig, her arms and legs didn’t match her torso and her make-up was just shot. Her golden chain had definitely slipped off and all hell had broken loose! She was quite frankly, “To’e up, from the flo’ up!” A lot to take in all at once for unprepared eyes that’s for sure!

Well, one good thing came her way because of her over the top “look,” she became the inspiration AND the first candidate for our new Pink Bubbles Doll Spa Swan program!

A Pink Bubbles Swan is a girl who’s looks have faded to the point of labeling her an “ugly duckling.” A gal who’s been rode hard and put away wet. Over time, she’s acquired a face meant for radio!  Life’s handed her lemons, but the good news is, she’s dumped them right into the laps of our stylists to serve you, dear readers, pink lemonade!

A very interesting feature of this particular spa client is she’s what collectors call  a “transitional” Barbie doll. She has the head, arms and legs of a #3 doll, but the hollow torso of the #4. A factory mish-mash of newer and older body parts (for the time.) A sort of “Franken-Dolly” if you will. I know, not a beauty reference considering her “before” photo!

Well, this was one dramatic make-over! No longer a “Horror-Hostess” she now really deserves her new title: Swan!

 Sometimes a gal blows through the spa that’s so full of life you just can’t help but love her! Even admire her a bit. A gal who grabs life by the, well, we’ll say horns! If I had to describe her, the term “firecracker” comes to mind. She was such a fun lovin’ gal who’d seen it all and was proud of it! A party girl who just didn’t care that someday her face would “freeze that way” and unfortunately for her, it did!

 When she threw open the spa doors, stamped out her Virginia Slim on our black & white linoleum floor, we knew the life of the party had arrived!

 She kept our staff in stitches the entire afternoon with tales of her adventures, life experiences and men! Mostly men! She said she “earned this face” and trust me, after she told us a few of her sordid stories, I agree, she did!

 Well, to be honest, this gal has had the works!

 Firstly, her hair was just fried and had been hacked off in places with scissors. (“A crazy night in Vegas” she recalled!) We had no choice, so her entire ponytail had to be re-rooted. Now it’s soft and shiny once again!

 Her bangs we kept mostly original, with just a few missing plugs added. (The bang hair loss was the results of a hair-pulling cat fight with a jealous cocktail waitress “who sassed her” in Phoenix, Arizona!)

 She’s also had a complete facial repaint. (“Huggin’ and kissin’ men is rough on a girls make-up!”) Don’t ask me, her quote not mine.

 When we finally finished up and turned her to the mirror, she squealed “Hot Damn! Good as new! Color me outa’ here Honey!” She paid her bill and left a really big tip too. She said she’d “come back and see us when the wind blew her this way again!” With those parting words, she whistled for a cab out front and then she was gone. Wow what a twister!                                                                                                                 

 I have a piece of advice for all you doll’s out there. And that is, lock up your husbands!

 Yes her wig was a rat’s nest, that goes without saying! But Miss Fashion Queen herself, well she is pretty flawless! Hardly needed a thing done. She did enjoy our Pink Bubble’s Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Besides her wig, that was it. This gal knows how to take care of herself! Lots of dolls could learn a thing or two from her. She was very modest about her looks to our staff and didn’t reveal a thing! Not one beauty secret! Some gals would call that selfish, others would say smart!

 Since Miss F. Q. has molded hair should didn’t “git her hair did,” but she did “git her wig did.” What a difference a day makes, right girls?!

This brave gal came running into our spa in the middle of the afternoon just last week. She was in quite the rush as she only had about two hours before she was due back at the airport for her next jaunt to L.A. She breathlessly told our receptionist Vera that the small eight seater plane she was on went down in a field just outside of town! Everything was fine though and all aboard were safe. She actually had to land the darn thing after the pilot fell ill after eating a bad burrito he brought on board for lunch. From the looks of her it must have been some landing and quite a walk to town for her to look the way she did!

Well, we rushed her right through with a quick wash and set and a fresh application of lipstick. Now this Fly Girl is regulation ready. Welcome aboard!
