Ken and Barbie Get Undead

Remember Bigfoot from THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN TV show? I had the big 14-inch action figure. (I still do.) I had other monster toys, too, but I specifically wanted a Barbie doll for my Bigfoot to attack. (Look, 5-year-olds can’t really be guilty of misogyny, awright?) I remember crying and begging for a Barbie at the local five-and-dime, and my father being worried—until he found out WHY I wanted the Barbie. Then it was okay. Ah, the nostalgia of a simpler age…

I thought of Barbie and Bigfoot when I learned about artist Will Turner, who takes Kens and Barbies and turns them into Horror movie figures. Check out the FRIGHT NIGHT Barbie. That one’s my favorite. I also love the Barbara doll from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and the THE EXORCIST Barbie. I creeped on his Facebook page and it turns out that Mr. Turner does custom dolls, too. Hey, Will, you wanna maybe exchange a doll order for some free publicity? I’m just sayin’, we have a nice readership here on this site. I could go for an Ed Wood customized Ken. And since Funko hasn’t taken me up on my recommendation that they make a Creeper figure from JEEPERS CREEPERS…
