Local Artist Wonders, What If Barbie Were Secretly a Hoarder?

Categories: Arts
First you build the room:

Some of that furniture really is from Barbie's Dream House, only Becker makes sure to obliterate any traces of pink with spray paint. The stains on the floor are coffee. Coffee is very useful in creating filth. So is actual dirt, collected from the filter of a Dust Buster. The dog poop on the floor is a Re-Ment meatball, re-purposed.

Becker finds the right camera angle so the room will look full-sized and frames her shot so she knows where to strew the trash. She also sets up lighting. She prefers her final images to look like somebody just walked into the room with a cheap camera and used the flash; she finds they look more realistic that way.

Then the filthing-up begins, sometimes aided by tweezers.

Since Re-Ment specializes only in cute things, Becker makes all the bags, boxes and other garbage herself. She spent 40 hours creating a cache of wadded-up newspapers. She doesn't hesitate to incorporate bits of her Re-Ment collection, though.

The kitchen life-sized:

And in real life.

If Barbie were black her krib would look like that. She'd be covered in tatoos of her dead relatives names. She'd be a crack whore on welfare with several babbee daddeez. She'd be driving a pimped out SUV and always talking LOUDLY on the cel phone with phrases like "I TOAD DAT BICHASS MUHAFUCKA N SHEEIT U CAN KISS MA MUHAFUCKN BLACK ASS N SHEET MUHAFUCKR SHEEIT"She would always be in your face demanding you do something for her or pay her or pay tribute to her "peepul". She'd be constantly confrontational, arrogant and uppity.

I've seen some people stoop to crazy levels to make something that's pretty neutral into an opportunity for their racist screeds, but you take the cake!  WTF?  You are a nutbag.

Barbie albeit a toy is representative of a white female. Some people stoop to crazy levels, like this liberal did, to destroy any wholesome representation of white females. When someone steps up to defend whites, liberals have a fit and want to redistribute white wealth all over again because they're convinced A) that brown skins can feel emotions like gratitude B) that this gives the liberal more control over brown skins
