Music is such joy, inspiration, and comfort for me. In September 2011, I did one of my favorite challenges as I followed along with TV’s “Project Runway” on my blog, forming a band of Mattel Barbie dolls called “The Opposite of Math,” and posing them in fashions I designed. I even created a mock Rolling Stone cover for them. A friend described this girl group as “Dollyrots Meets Spice Girls.” From left to right, they are a Hard Rock Barbie I named Rocky, dubbed “The Fun Girl”; a Barbie Basics Red Collection doll I named Juliet, “The Earth Mother”; the Robert Best On Location Barcelona Barbie, or “Barcelona, The Sophisticate”; and the Joan Jett Barbie, known as “Grace, The Rebel.” Rock on, Opposite of Math!
