My super model for this week has been pink haired Space Fantasy Sindy (1985). She’s nicely designed with a heart shaped, vulcan hairline so that she can wear her hair up on top. A very popular doll with collectors. Quite a stand out in the line of brunettes and blondes.
Here she is in the “Quick Change” 1982 silver outfit (plus extra bag), which came out three years before Space Fantasy.
She brings back memories of Toya Willcox yelling “I don’t want to go to school” in a fabulous silver and black sci-fi inspired ensemble.
Delighted to see that she’s just released a new single called Sensational. A hopeful song for the children of the future, with a fab contemporary but 80s inspired music video.
Space Fantasy also shone this week when I dressed her up in the Jean Paul Gaultier style corset from Hasbro “Dream Ballet” 1991. It looks very pop star without the skirt!
And I love this pink polka dot “Cherry Pop” trouser suit (1984). The white braces, made from two linked loops are such a great twist.
I remember a pink polka dot blouse I wore to death in the 80s. Loved it.
Would love to hear about your space inspired outfits from the 80s.
p.s on the metallic space theme, a Facebook friend just shared this… Brigitte Bardot in 1968 “Contact !”
