If this gets more girls to pick up this style I for one hopes she loses the lawsuit and these things sell like hot cakes.

Mattel/Hard Rock never sought Patricia's approval because she is "an intelligent, outspoken, anti-establishment female artist in an industry still dominated by the erotic 'male gaze'

Oh god, one of those.

I hate it when fat chicks think adopting a "style" will make everyone else not notice they're fat.

Guessing picture would make her a hypocrite.

*click*

Yep.

No biatching about 'male gaze' when you're smokin' hot by most standards, and in fact, profit from it.

Patricia Day sounds like a tool. She's using this as self promotion and maybe a way to dig into some deep pockets to fund her lame career.

Indeed.

A friend of mine's been doing that look, and looking better, for about 15 years.

While I agree, I think it's the upright bass with very similar markings that throws a monkey wrench into the whole thing.

If I had to describe my ideal woman in two words it would probably be "Rockabilly Barbie."

apparently you need this explained to you...and since you're an idiot I'll use small words...those "chicks" at the RHH show aren't trying to profit off of that look, Mattel is.

Lady Gaga wouldn't bother suing fans at her shows for wearing her "signature" meat-dress...but she sure as shiat would sue Mattel for using and profiting from that look without her permission.

RocketRod: I hate it when fat chicks think adopting a "style" will make everyone else not notice they're fat.


No shiat.

"These cat eye glasses, this jet-black hair with red highlights, these Rosie The Riveter fashions, all will certainly distract potential suitors from the massive sweat stains under my pendulous fat tits."


Also, "I'm alternative! Body image means nothing to me! (which is why I adorn my body with tattoos, maybe a beauty mark on my lip, and a sassy polka dot bow in my hair to totally not draw attention from my double chin because I'm over such superficial things. I'm pretty, right?."

I think he was saying that Mattel could have copied anyone at a RHH concert not necessarily her, not that she should sue those fans.

I've always loved this look but could never pull it off personally. Love the girls who do though!

FTFA: "Rockabilly Barbie" sports jet black hair, heavy eye makeup, colorful tattoos, and decidedly 1950s throwback garb in a manner similar to Day's standard appearance. The doll is also accompanied by a black upright bass.

2011-01-07 01:57:57 PM  
that's closer to an Amy Winehouse Barbie than whoever is suing them for Rockabarbie

also, your parents buying this for you only means you have to house them when they get old

Thanks to you and That Guy...From That Show! for the pics, as the link is farked.

I thought the bass might be the sticking point, too, but a simple GIS showed me there are tons of similarly decorated slap basses associated with a variety of rockabilly artists. *shrug* Now, if they'd put the neck curve on Barbie's, I see a definite case.

I'll go with gold-digging skank for a thousand, Alex.

And devil-horns? Really? People still do that?

Rockabilly Cellist Barbie?

tinyarena

While I don't deny the resemblance, it isn't like I haven't seen women with the EXACT same style before. In fact, I'd argue that without the base (or cello) she kind of looks like an early Amy Winehouse.
 
2011-01-07 02:02:05 PM  
Dude, I used to go to every Rockabilly show in Dallas. All those girls look that way.

The tats aren't the same. The hair is pretty much the iconic 'do'. Nobody has a patent on a dress as far as I know. The upright isn't the same... at all. This girl is just going for dough. MANY rockabilly bassists decorate their bass with the classic American style tattoo iconography, too.

Like was said above, she looks like almost EVERY chick at a Reverend concert.

I don't know the guys, but I love going to those shows.

I miss Slick57 and all that. I'm thinking right now about the old days at Club Clearview. Ghoultown was a great show too.

If you are in the NYC area go to Otto's Shrunken Head on 14th St. on the third Friday of the month and you will drool over a couple dozen chicks like this.

One night Kim Lenz and the Jaguars were opening for them in New Orleans. Kim did the show, but they were booked to play the after party at the Shim Sham Club and he voice went out. I ended up sitting in with the bad and singing a few songs, the last of which Jimbo jumped up and played bass on. It began a pretty cool friendship that lasts to this day.
