OOAK means "one of a kind," and the artistry of one of a kind dolls began long ago. However, Barbie artists have taken the art of one of a kind to a new level.  This page dedicated to the Barbie lover - especially the one of a kind Barbie lovers.  

Here you will find one of a kind Barbie dolls by some of the top artists who specialize in doll fashions, doll sets, props, dioramas, Barbie makeovers, rescues, and more. OOAK Barbie is dedicated to the one of a kind doll artists who appreciate the art of Mattel. Please stop by frequently to check for the latest updates.  Now, to The Barbie Runway . . .

Gothic Dolls By Passion - Award Winning Barbie Goth, Fantasy Makeover Artist

A OOAK Passion For Detail . . .

OOAK artists seem to have one thing in common and that is detail. Details are what make an artist's creations one of a kind.

Elaine Donovan's attention to detail in her OOAK dolls is true candy for the eyes, and you can read more about her in Goth creations in the May/June 08 issue of "Devolution Magazine."

Welcome To Barbie's Vintage Corner

Do you love the vintage Barbie doll? Do you collect the rare and vintage Barbie? Here are a few of eBay's random picks of the day . . .

Barbie's Marketing Guru

When Ken Walks, Money Talks . . .

Barbie can't trust Ken to help with her money matters, so she hired her own professional marketing guru. Not just any marketing guru, but the one and only Seth Godin Action Figure.

The creative design/build team at Archie McPhee have made a unique friend for the doll market, and Barbie said, "It's about time!" This company produced the unique Seth Godin Marketing Guru Action Figure complete with "Little Book of Marketing Secrets" and a "FREE Prize Inside." There are many good things about this product, and you are invited to learn more.

If you are looking for a unique action figure to compliment your OOAK creation, this may be of interest of you. The best part about the doll is that it is affordable, and all proceeds go to charity. Seth's Blog has more to say about it, and it is all good.

Reach For The Stars . . .

      I would love to get some kind of book on how they build this beautiful barbie furniture for my granddaughter. I don't want to do the homemade stuff with tissue boxes. I want the beautiful diningroom table. there has to a book of place you can buy it not completely finished. Does anyone know where I could get started to make my own OOAK furniture?

      Would you believe I have very recently done my first Barbie doll repaint! It is something that has fascinated me for a while and I just had to have a go after seeing the work of Donna Anne (who you feature above). For a first attempt I'm pleased with the result. Thanks for all this wonderful inspiration... and of course for the angel blessing you left on my red glass! :)

      So, I wonder when Seth Godin repaints will come on the market? We need a Squid action figure too now or a "Good Luck Gil" to sit on our desktop for good computer juju. :-)
