The Solstice Girls

These two just crack me up. Yup, they are official Barbies. The one on the left is my Wicked Witch of the West. The one on the right is my daughter's - its the official 2008 Holiday Barbie. (And no I did not buy her it - grandparents did.)

Somehow they spoke Solstice to me. Dark of night and Bright of Sun. Repurposing cultural icons of the stereotypical nature and returning them to their earthly origins seems highly appropriate right now. And these two like hanging out together! :)
