Pop-culture versions of the iconic Barbie dolls have been modeled after Kate and Pippa Middleton, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and many others. Now, Summit Entertainment, the studios involved in the production of the Hollywood grosses, Twilight Saga, has announced that ‘Breaking Dawn Barbies’, inspired by the Twilight characters Edward and Bella will be released in February. The dolls will be special wedding editions of the couple immortalized by the Twilight Saga – Edward and Bella. They have been modeled based on how Edward and Bella looked on their ‘wedding day’ in the movie, Breaking Dawn Part I.
What so hot about it?
In what could be considered as the continuation of a trend, the latest superstars seem to get Barbies after them! It seems to be time for Ken to move over from a normal, mortal self to the handsome, tuxedo-clad, Edward Barbie and the shirtless Jacob Barbie while Barbie herself is now a vampire bride.
As far as the looks go, it is never entirely possible to simulate the faces and expressions. Edward Barbie definitely looks a shade paler than Edward in the movie while Bella Barbie seems to have a slightly different face structure. But the Barbie dolls have done what every Barbie before has successfully achieved – getting the clothes, hair and general feel perfect. In fact, Bella Barbie’s gown is simply gorgeous with the beautiful plunging back details too. Thus, one look at the dolls and cannot help but get the images of Twilight Saga in the mind’s eye.
Barbie’s pink convertible seems all set to hold its new occupants as Bella and Edward set out for the honeymoon. Mattel seems all set to capture the rave and craze that the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn generated. Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are also ready in their super dreamy doll forms. While Bella shines in the glamour of her brunette locks and sweetly innocent looks, Edward is not left behind with his chiseled features, shimmering complexion, golden eyes and a handsome glow.
The dolls are being made available for $29.95 each. They will be dressed in the same costume that we saw them in during their wedding in the movie.
When it comes to buying Barbie dolls, where else could you think of looking but at BarbieCollector. The site already has dolls of the teenage Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. February will see the wedding models updated.
