The Wig Makes the Man

New playscale (1:6) male

He's been here for a while, dressed in boring jeans, gray dress shirt, and black boots standing atop my desk waiting for something else to wear.

After receiving my recent order from Shop.Mattel.Com, which included two fashion packs for Ken, I decided to try one or two of the fashions on New Guy.  In doing so, I have determined the Fashionistas Ken fashions can only be worn by slim-bodied dolls, which my new guy is not.  To illustrate this, I decided to share images of him dressed in the yellow print "Malibu Beach" hoodie and gray pants from Ken fashion Asst. N8329 X3134.

The pants will not close completely in the back due to New Guy's wider hips and larger bottom.


The hoodie fits a little too snug for me (and him).



The sandals from this fashion pack also have a snug fit, which makes them too short.   If I decide he needs to wear the sandals with something else in the future, I can dunk them in boiling water for a few seconds to stretch the vinyl for a better fit width and length-wise.

For now, I will allow him to swap clothing with "Afro" Ken (Sunsational Malibu Ken, 1981), whose was wearing the extra fashion that came with (Flavas) Tre.


Limbedolls dreadlock wig

To complete New Guy's look, I added a Limbe Dolls dreadlock wig recently received with an order placed through her Etsy shop.


Marley (this name just came to mind for him) is looking and feeling pretty good now.

    1. That really would be nice, MDW, especially since Ken's fashions appear to be improving from past offerings.

  8. He looks great in the dreads. Like he used to be in the Air Force but then retired to the islands to run a bar with some of his old AF buddies. But... they are always ready for action.
