75 Barbie Spin-Offs

From Toys as Models to Decapitated Barbie Headdresses

— April 4, 2010 — Life-Stages
This cluster of Barbie spin-offs shows how one iconic doll has shaped the face of popular culture. From diffusion lines for women inspired by Barbie's fashions to esteemed designers creating accessories for Barbie dolls, it's clear that the fashion world has benefited greatly from Barbie.

But Barbie spin-offs don't end in the fashion industry. The art and crafting world has taken its own turn with Barbie, creating beautiful and bizarre dioramas and art pieces with Barbie. Some photographers have even replaced models with Barbie dolls, or instructed their models to assume rigid, doll-like poses.
