The question is: Do you want it?

Because "You can have it ALL!"


I know, we've featured Barbie-esque stuff before. I. KNOW. I just can't help myself. Anything with Barbie's mutilated body encapsulated in resin screams to me. I can't bring myself to pass it by. Particularly this gem. Why? Because: YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL. YES. I AM YELLING. HAVE IT. TAKE IT. PLEASE. NOW!!!!


From the listing:
You CAN have it all. . . it just takes some work! A great piece for the recent graduate, or person who has just been promoted.
That's exactly what I was thinking. For a person who has just been promoted... INTO THE POSITION YOU WERE ALSO VYING FOR. You could wrap it up all pretty like and when you hand it to them say: "Congratulations! It's all yours!" as you smile politely and innocently.


Hopefully they believe your gesture to be genuine. That would make it all the more fun when you see that they've hung your gift in their new 4 X 4 cubical facing the window which looks onto the backside of a concrete structure situated a mere 4 feet from said window. Dammit. It should have been YOURS! NOW GIVE ME BACK MY MUSTARD LID!

    actually, I might want it… if her other leg was glued to the other side, so it looked like she was straddling the lid… THEN, I would want it.

    Well…technically you can’t have it “all” since she is missing a torso.

    Is this Barbie (Bartie?) from a transvestite stage show?

    GENIUS. She looks like the Hybrid off BattleStar Galactica.
    Now I want my bosoms to be encased in golden flowers.

    It was FABULOUS to meet you at BlogHer and realise you were 50% of the genius behind this blog. I’ve also tracked down the Museum of Bad Art.

    Portraiture is a particularly rewarding section, and my personal favourite is Peter the Kitty and his Feline Rage.

    I love that the whole piece is adhered to a plastic lid. High quality craftsmanship, there.

    These people doing all this Barbie stuff — they are TOTALLY ripping off this artist who has been doing it for years. And is in galleries. And is doing it much better.

    You’re totally right. And! I love that artist. LOVE. I’ve been sucked into her site for HOURS many times before. There’s something very captivating about it, yet … odd.

    I can tell you this: I’ve never wanted a mutilated Barbie more.

    I agree…very cool stuff. Still, I think there’s something to be said for Barbie parts set in something that looks like a petri dish. It’s like the artist/crafter is saying, “yes! You can have the body you want when you come out of a lab!” Not the prettiest piece to hang on the wall, but I kind of want it.

    I am sure I do NOT want any of it!! It just reminds me of how the saying “You can make art out of anything” is a LIE!!! And you can’t have it all especially not your torso or other leg!!

    Resin fumes are quite strong and long exposure probably can affect thinking and judgment.

    For some reason I just keep thinking of the Nine Inch Nails song ‘Hurt’:
    You could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    ooohhhhhh i want one of thoes, its the sort of messed up art that i love :) tho, i see a deep meaning to this, it shows how women are prepared to mutilate there bodys for “fashion”, the resin symbolises plastic surgery, and the gold boob things show how women are judged on the size/ quality of there body, and the saying u can have it all, well that is just saying that if u were to mutilate ure body then u to could look like barbie…who if she was a real person would not be able to stand up coz she is top heavy…… omg, i surprised myself with that one….very deeep lol

    Oh. My. Gawd.
    There are no words to appropriately describe what I’m feeling.
    Maybe indigestion would come close.
    Did you happen to see on her listing that she added how she had been roasted here? This mean spirited website.
    Nice touch.
