I stumbled across this roundup of handcrafted Lady Gaga Barbies. Veik, the 29-year-old Beijing-based artist behind the dolls, explained why he chose Gaga as his muse:
“Just look at her in those amazing wigs, makeup, and outfits! I was thinking it would be fun to make those wigs for dolls, and that a Lady Gaga doll must be interesting. Since then, I pay close attention to her; her music, clothes, glasses, makeup, everything! Every detail makes me love her more and more.”
Veik created perfect Barbie-sized versions of Lady Gaga’s infamous Jean Charles de Castelbajac Kermit dress, her red lace outfit from the VMAs, her hair bow made of hair, and various exacting iterations of her “Bad Romance” looks, including her Alexander McQueen claw shoe.
