Barbie Then and Now

My newfound obsession with Barbie dolls started when I was getting ready for my upcoming role in PILLOWTALK (also known as 《再见单人床》) where I play someone in love with the idea of love and how I learn the meaning of love through the trials and tribulations I have to go through with my long-term boyfriend.

It wasn’t a conscious effort to engage with Barbie dolls just so to get into the role, but I suppose it was just happened around the same time.

I know more about Barbies now than I did when I was a kid. Actually I didn’t have Barbies to play with when I was a kid, so I suppose you can say I’m trying to relive my childhood.

I’m really fond of vintage dolls because they are, in my opinion, much prettier. I don’t understand what happened through the years, but looking at this link below, tell me what you think. Dolls and the accessories back then, seemed more refine.
