Doll Junk Collectible and Crazy Fashions from the '70s and '80s SC (2015) comic books
1st printing. By Carmen Varricchio. "Eeeewww. Fake Barbie clothes." Those four words verbalize the faint discomfort kids would share when playing with dolls and unearthing an inferior, generic, or "clone" dress or top from their sizeable supply of perfect Mattel doll outfits. These cheapies were treated as tainted outcasts and were basically left to rot. Today, a younger generation of doll lovers is on the rise. These leap-for-cheap fashionistas gleefully embrace the very items their quality-conscious predecessors detested. Here, for your viewing pleasure or revulsion, are nearly 800 not-exactly-gorgeous getups and some of the downgraded dolls who wore them, many in their original packaging. Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 176 pages, full color. Cover price $29.99.
