How To Buy Misty Copeland’s Shero Barbie Doll, Because It's So Fierce — PHOTOS
Mattel's Barbie Sheroes line was already amaze, but they just turned Misty Copeland into a Barbie, and things just went totally next-level. Wondering how to buy Misty Copeland's Shero Barbie doll? I've got all the details so you don't miss out on the doll of your childhood ballerina dreams. Seriously — wait until you see her costume.
Mattel's Barbie Sheroes program has been turning female heroes into their iconic Barbie dolls, and the latest addition may just be my favorite yet. American Ballet Theatre's first female African-American principal dancer, Misty Copeland, has been immortalized as a Barbie, and the result is so great, it's going to make you want to run out and buy one as soon as you see it. Even if you're too old to play with dolls. #NoShame.
The doll comes wearing a red bodysuit with orange tulle, which is inspired by Copeland's costume from "The Firebird," her first principal role. "I always dreamed of becoming an ABT ballerina and through Barbie I was able to play out those dreams early on. It's an honor to be able to inspire the next generation of kids with my very own Barbie doll," Copeland said.
So how can you buy it? Copeland's Barbie is available for $29.95 on thebarbiecollection.com.
So fierce, right?
