Hello and Welcome!
My name is Julia aka "JuliaOriginals". I am an artist and have been working with Vintage Barbie dolls for well over 10 years. I now live in beautiful Tulsa, OK "Green Country" with my family.
My passion for Barbie started with wanting to make ugly damaged dolls look gorgeous and sparkly once again. The classic vintage 60's silhouettes inspire me. More than mere playthings, JuliaOriginals Exclusive Barbie Creations are elegantly put together works of art. Each doll intricately conveys images of the classic 1960's style and femininity.
I love to create One of a Kind Dolls, doing all the work myself for a full, head to toe look. The clothes I create for my OOAK dolls are always "One Of a Kind", designed specifically for each doll. No premade patterns are ever used, all the patterns I make myself from scratch to ensure the clothes are always well fitting and impeccably put together. I love a tight fit on the clothing to show off Barbie's perfect figure. The reroots are equally meticulously done. It takes anywhere from 24 -48 hours to reroot a single doll.
I am inspired by the style of Lucille Ball most of all. She was such a class act!
In the mean time please visit my Flickr page for new doll pics and more.
Happy shopping and collecting!! Have a lovely Day!!
