to conform

i wanted this series to represent how girls are obsessed with looking perfect. i wanted kimmy to be "swimming" in a sea of perfect girls. that's what i was going for but it kind of ending up just being kimmy in a bath tub with something weird floating with her (you know how much i like doing that: see glitter, milk, teafish)
anyway, BIG shout out to kelly (and emily) and shriya for sending me barbies! kelly actually payed for the shipping (barbies are heavier than you'd think, so the shipping was a lot) and she sent me around 25 barbies. i couldn't have taken these without these amazing people!

i have so many ideas for these barbies. they're a part of a series i'm putting together- i'll pick one or two of these for the story for the final post, but since i haven't been posting a lot, i thought it'd post all of them anyway. i'm getting back into the swing of things~

  6. i like number 2 and 4. but feel that in some of the frames the focus is a little too much on the barbies contrq the girl who you want to photograph/the focus of the series. good work.
