Mattel Announces Drag Queen Barbie (Seriously!!!)
Barbie’s having herself a kiki, y’all!
The gender bender doll called ‘The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll’ doesn’t come equipped with detachable lady parts or a Ken bump, it is simply a regular Barb that takes after the cross dressing Phillipe Blond of the NYC design duo, and we think it is pretty darn fab.
The drag queen doll is dressed in a diamond encrusted mini dress with a floor sweeping faux fur coat (take note!) glitter pumps and over the top makeup.
If by “drag queen,” Mattel means rhinestones, faux fur and heavy eye makeup, then yes, I suppose this is a Drag Queen Barbie.
But if by “drag queen,” Mattel meant ohhh, I don’t know, DRAG QUEEN, then no, this is not a roaring success.
For those of you unfamiliar with The Blonds, think Kylie Minogue’s Get Outta My Way. The duo is responsible for Kylie’s gold corset, and similar looks for many of your favorite lady pop stars.
Drag Queen Barbie hits shelves in December, just in time for Christmas.
The collective hivemind host to the shared consciousness of Maggie Gallagher, One Million Moms, Rush Limbaugh, and the like will begin melting down in exactly 3…2…1…
