Details from the Barbie Extra Party Theme
One can never get enough of a Barbie party! So when CottonOn released their Barbie EXTRA clothes range around about the time of the 2021 lockdown, we knew we definitely had to grab our girl gang and get shooting.
After having to postpone twice due to spicy flu (thanks but no thanks COVID), we were ready to rock! Rather than the traditional pink, we wanted to pay homage to the fun, colour and message that Barbie conveys. Including some retro elements was also a must, because Barbie just has that nostalgic effect on all of us! Lots of bright colours, a life-size boom box and a Barbie box lay the foundation for our backdrop.
Now no outfit, especially when it is EXTRA is complete without coloured hair and braids, thank you to Sydney’s queen of braids The Braid Boss! With each little one dressed in their outift and hair done, it was time to sit down to a table of desserts!
Our Cricut got a workout on this shoot, which was super exciting as each girl got a Barbie quote on their meal box and a personalised bottle.
So many smiles, fun and happiness…oh to be a kid again!
