|Ken Fashionista #130 in a stock photo|
Ken Fashionista #130 is a darker-skinned version of Classic Cool Ken. Like Classic Cool, #130 has molded cornrows. Because Mattel painted these dolls' scalp the same color as the hair, I repainted the scalp to give a more realistic appearance. Classic Cool's scalp repainting was done after the doll arrived in 2017. I utilized free time during the 2019 holidays to repaint #130's scalp. He was also redressed and also captured in size comparison images. Images and captions of the repainting and redressing follow.
|Ken is shown in before and after side-by-side shots that illustrate the unpainted scalp and the painted scalp from several angles.|
|The painted scalp provides the realism I desired. His lip color was darkened, too.|
Face and Height Comparisons
|Ken #130 poses with Classic Cool Ken for a height and face comparison.|
|A close-up of the guys' faces illustrates they share the same head sculpt.|
|This back-to-back photograph illustrates how much taller Classic Cool is than Ken #130.|
|A final height comparison between a Barbie of regular height (Travel Teen Nikki) and one that is petite (Cheerful Check/CeeCee) was made as shown here. Ken #130 is about the same height as Nikki and slightly taller than CeeCee (the petite girl).|
