American Girl Dolls Dress Up as 80s Pop Stars

After my daughter watched the hilarious video of Conan visiting the American Girl Doll Store in Los Angeles, she wanted to celebrate her 31st birthday with her girlfriends at the Seattle area store. The fact that our AG store (unlike the one in L.A.) does not serve alcohol did not deter us, as there are many bars in the area where one can have cocktails before attending their party.

For this special occasion, I offered to make new outfits for Emily’s dolls, Molly, Kirsten and Addy. We immediately thought of 80s pop stars because they are Emily’s favorites. We weren’t sure how the staff would react, but they were wonderful, and we had the best time. Afterward, we took the dolls to sing karaoke. In fact, we’re all planning to go again next year and Emily has already picked a theme for the doll’s outfits — the movie Clueless.

Kirsten as Madonna — Emily made the jewelry
Kirsten has a hard time standing in those heels


Addy as Janet Jackson
It’s so hard to find tiny hardware, and I had to cut those pins out of sheet aluminum.

Molly as Selena
I found the perfect fabric online at Spandex House in NYC. I padded her butt a little.
