Project Project Runway

Oh, how I loves me a good challenge! 

I'm a relatively new (in the last year or two) Project Runway fan.  The new season is starting tomorrow.... woo hoo!  Last season, just at the end, I discovered a couple of talented, fun bloggers, Kathy and Susi, that were creating collections along with the Project Runway show, but in miniature... on Barbies... sooooo cute!  They are doing it again this time and I'm joining in the fun.

I contracted with my model several weeks ago in hopes that I could participate.  She was having trouble finding modeling work and was stuck at a Dollar Store - I saved her from that.  Meet Lizbeth.



We're going all the way to Bryant Park!

The first challenge will be posted Friday morning and finished garments will be revealed the following Thursday on the Project Project Runway Flickr group.

Join us?

Oh, you are another Barbie girl! Susi will be so happy she isn't the only one. Good luck designer!

I LOVE this idea! Can't wait to see it! And this reminds me of the photo shoot Dad & I did with the Barbies when I was a kid :)

Kathleen said...

I was thinking about that when I took my picture. I'll have to pull a few of those out, scan them and post them. And maybe I can get your Dad to help me with the photo shoots of my model :)

Your post is too funny. I'm glad you rescued Lizbeth! I used to watch Project Runway for the first few seasons, but now I don't watch much tv. The challenge is such a great and fun idea! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Well now you've gone and done it... I've never seen PR (no cable TV)and watched it online today, just out of curiosity. I had to go to Target for other reasons and found a perfect model for under $5 so I hired her. So now I have my model but don't know if I want to commit to this or not. I'll see if I have the time to start this challenge and even if I only do a couple, it could be fun. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations! To be continued..... Oh, and good luck to you!
