    Really incredible photos in this imagining of Barbie discovering Ken's gay affair:

    This sorta happened in real life when "real life Barbie," a smoldering Russian sexpot, met "real life Ken," a fey plastic surgery junkie. You might say that molotov cocktail met Siberia when this Barbie doll, clearly no one's hag, wouldn't be played with - she initially recoiled, which was edited out of this clip:

    I really think the artistry of the photos is pretty great. They really have an authentic "Barbie World" feel. From the colors, makeup, down to the sets and props...

    I liked photo 8 but not particularly fond of the one with him in heals, it simply plays to the stereo type of homosexuality as being confused with a desire to be a woman. If this is a fantasy ken, then why couldn't he be a closet leather queen instead or an gay Urban Cowboy or Construction worker. The same single stereotype over and over is tiring.

    That would have been sexier to me too.... icon_twisted.gif But I think the current photos/story line really are consistent with the all-pink, hyper feminine, world of Barbie.

    Hah! That Harley Ken doll looks more like a GI Joe than the Ken dolls in their preppy collars and super short tennis shorts I remember from my doll playing youth! icon_biggrin.gif

    Regarding the decapitation.... I thought all Barbies ended up that way, right? At least my sisters' barbies all did.
