I am really enjoying this portion of the cataloging project. Not that bringing all the dolls out and photographing them wasn't fun but there is just something about the early Barbie clothing that is ..... well, magical. The quality and detail of these outfits are amazing.

So now that the dolls are all cataloged it's time to move onto the next group I have collected, the clothes! I think this will be fun but time consuming because I hope to show the outfits the dolls. And most everything is in various boxes in no particular order.
I think it will be a good time to also try and organize all the clothes so they are easily accessible. Anyone have any good ideas.......because I don't. At the moment I have outfits in cases, in the Susie Goose closet and in ziplock bags in storage boxes. It's a mess, basically.
Anyway, it's time to get started!
Outfits are in no particular order but I will try and keep eras together. I did not put any of the vintage open toe mules on Barbie as they have a tendency of splitting. I will also make note of outfits that are original from my childhood.

I never had Barbie's Dream House when I was a kid (I did have the Fashion Shoppe, which I wish, wish, wish they would reproduce) and I missed the first release a few years back. So I jumped on the new release gift set with bubblecut doll and additional outfits. Warning: Picture heavy

These are the final dolls in my catalog project. Now I do have 3 MTM dolls, 4 Kelly and Friends, 1 Stacie and 1 Chelsea, but I am not counting them in my collection. The little dolls are just used as props for some dioramas, I don't collect them. Kind of the same with the MTM dolls, they are just for dioramas I don't really consider them part of the doll collection but I may change my mind and add them later.
I got this doll because I wanted the animals and I don't have many brunettes from this era (come to think of it I don't have many dolls from this era at all!). She has a load of hair, almost too much, I may cut it or not.
