In the case of Tropi-Cutie, a name that begged for replacement, because of her Afro hairstyle, I have decided to name her Pam after actress, Pam Grier, who sometimes wore an Afro in the 1970s blaxploitation films in which she starred. Grier is also a current favorite actor of mine, earning this status after I viewed the 1997 movie, Jackie Brown where she ultimately becomes the victor, outwitting the males, all of whom had their own agendas that would have caused unpleasant issues for Jackie Brown. In a male-dominated society, I always root for women. This movie is one that I can watch over and over again and still want to watch more. Thank you Pam Grier (and I guess Quentin Tarantino for writing and directing it just for Grier to play the role of Jackie Brown).

Anyway, Tropi-Cutie's new name is Pam. I googled photos of Pam Grier to find a more appropriate Pam Grier-ish fashion for the doll to wear and found the above photo. (Blog reader, Bailey, found and shared a similar image with me as well after I discussed with her off-blog that I was renaming this doll Pam.) The halter blouse influenced my decision to allow Pam, the doll, to swap clothes with Music Barbie (who also needs a name, but I just cannot think of one that I will remember.) The two are shown in the first photo of this post. Pam (the doll) needed Music Barbie's fashion, so the two agreed to swap.
|Pam is loving her new clothes and enjoys showing off her belly button. She's pleased she was able to continue wearing the black Roman sandals with this, too.|

Both are pleased with their new clothes. Pam is delighted that Music Barbie was willing to part with and swap out fashions with her. Pam is also happy that the name, Tropi-Cutie has been laid to rest.
