|This and all other photos in this post are courtesy of Romona Jennings|
Fellow doll enthusiast, Romona Jennings, shared photos with my Facebook group of her recently received Misty Copeland Barbie. After waiting months (and she is still waiting) for the Copeland Barbie ordered from TheBarbieCollector dot com, she decided to purchase a discounted doll from Amazon dot com and she is happy she did. The doll's imperfect box did not matter because Jennings planned to debox the doll. She will eventually have two Copeland Barbies after the long-awaiting one from TBC arrives, but can enjoy this one now. I loved her pictures so much that I wanted to share them with you.
With her permission, the initial photos she took and some additional ones I requested are shared below:
|The colorful backdrop is from Ntzoke Shange's Obie Award-winning 1974 play,|
for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf.
Romona added red feathers to the doll's headpiece and also pierced her ears. With the red feathers, she wanted to achieve a similar look to the headpiece Copeland wore in her title role in Firebird.
|Misty's Firebird costume is shown above in this Internet-captured photograph.|

I hope you have enjoyed Romona's photos as much as I have. Thanks again Romona for allowing me to share these and thank you for taking additional photos of the AAADT Barbie at my request.
