Barbies don’t always inspire kids to play nicely. We all knew someone growing up who liked to decapitate their strangely proportioned toys or chuck Skipper and Kelly off the Barbie dream house roof. Emma Roberts‘ new Barbie photo shoot, however, makes a couple headless dolls look positively charming.
The photo collection done by photographer Tyler Shields stars Barbie in a more prominent role than Emma, but she does do a good job of looking horrified as she looks in on the doll debauchery. Some of Barbie’s many misdeeds captured on film include Barbie-on-Barbie (or more accurately, Ken), beheading, drug use, and binge drinking. It’s just like Toy Story, if Andy had brought his toys to college and left his cocaine lying around.
Creepy Barbie pics don’t come cheap; Tyler already has buyers ready to set down $200,000 for the shots. He’d already garnered attention from photographing stars like Lindsey Lohan. The pictures are definitely artistic, but I think I’ll stick to the Barbies of my childhood: bloodless, fully clothed, and clean and sober.
