George Washington Barbie Pix
#1
I snapped a few de-boxing photos of the George Washington Barbie. Not good photos by any means, just some quick snapshots, including some detail shots of the jacket, which a few people have asked about.

I'm not a fabric expert, but to me the jacket appears to be a heavy nylon or nylon blend. It definitely has a plastic-like sheen to it. And the pink color is intense. To me, it does not appear that the jacket would accept dye particularly well. Also, the jacket is quite detailed with a number of black velvet details sewn on. I'm not sure how dying or recoloring the jacket would work without fairly major disassembly.

The jacket is also sewn on to the figure. Removing the jacket or any part of the costume would require snipping numerous threads.

They're not dolls, they're action figures!

She's pretty cool. I like the little detail of the curled feather on her hat. Dang -- I need this coat in burgundy but given what you and DeadlyNova have told me about the fabric, it doesn't look like dyeing will work. Sigh... on to Plan B.
I hope we will see some of George-Barbie's adventures in the future smile

She looks quite a bit more detailed than I thought she was.

I was thinking the same thing and then saw your comment and could not stop laughing.

She is cute. Pink brocade is so fancy as well as her hat.

Actually, the title "George Washington . . ." made me think of the GEICO commercial of testy George Washington crossing the Delaware (highway) in the boat being pushed by his crew. Who thought of that? Funny.

I'm so happy that I've caused the love for George to be spread. xD Who knew me spotting her on google when googling 'weird Barbies' would spring into so many people here loving her? LOL

She's super cute, mine is nearby right now too. She's definitely towards the top of my list of favorite Barbies.
