Fashionista comments, part three

You can't see it because of the flash glare on the box,
but there is a bear pictured behind Skipper.
You may recall that Skipper had several run-ins with bears
in Life in the Dreamhouse.

Note that Skipper is thinner than the Fashionista Barbies.
Note that Tutu Cool is standing on her tippy toes.

Barbie's molded on panties say "Barbie"
while her sister's says "Skipper," plus there is a star print.

I think Fashionistas sometimes need
to be redressed in each others' clothes.

I have purchased the new Camping Fun Skipper.  I wanted to compare her to the Petite Fashionistas.
As I mentioned before, I own three Petite Fashionista Barbies.  They are Crazy for Coral, Kitty Cute and Tutu Cool.  The Petite dimensions are: 10 1/2 inches tall, 4 1/2 inch bust, 3 3/4 inch waist and 4 3/4 inch hips.
However, although Skipper is the same height, she is much thinner.  Her dimensions are 10 1/2 inches tall, 4 inch bust, 3 1/2 inch waist and 4 1/2 inch hips.
I love Camping Fun Skipper's beautiful long, almost black hair with some red dyed streaks in it, plus the clever lantern and water flask.  I didn't care for her outfit, though.  I hate the leggings--why would someone want to wear them for several days of camping--wouldn't they start to smell?  And I don't know why her T-shirt has "Friday" written on it in the same format as the Friday the 13th movies.
I undressed all the dolls and photographed them nude so you can compare the bodies.  Tutu Cool has high heeled feet and cannot wear the flats the others wear, and vice versa.  I also rearranged their outfits and I think they look better in them.

Thanks for sharing the body dimensions of the Petite Fashionistas and the current Skipper body. Good to know that the former are a little bigger in bust and hip regions. Makes sense since they are adults while Skipper is a tallish young teen.

I think your redressed Fashionistas look better for the changes you did.
