Pinebie & Belle Naturelle from Finland

Hei from Finland!

My name is Kati and I've just joined the Altered Barbie community. I got in contact with some amazing Barbie-art in San Francisco last fall, when visiting my toy friends in California. For the past 4 years I have concentrated on adult toy play as both a researcher, artist and player. My toy-related photography, what I refer to as 'photoplay' has participated in many art exhibitions around Finland.

Raks Decor and the Diva Dolls

Hi all, I am delighted to know that there are others out there who see plastic fashion dolls as an opportunity to express something even more. I have had so much fun working with  the looks and personality of each of the dolls that I find.  I start adding colors and fabric and trimmings and create "belly dancers" in a variety of dance and cultural expression. I have put just a few on this site, as I just found out about this group.  You can see more pics of these listed and more at Thanks for visiting hope you are delighted. Ginger
