NSFW: Barbie Goes Psycho! Macabre Artist Plays With Killer Dolls

So maybe you've seen this here or here, but there was really no chance we weren't going to bring this to you, too. Barbie, that plastic paragon of American Wonder-Bread beauty, reached the half-century mark recently, and it seems that hitting the big Five-Oh has caused a psychotic break. In the hands of the deft, deliciously macabre photo artist Mariel Clayton, Barbie has gone on a killing spree, slaughtering boy-toy Ken, cutting up the kids, engaging in a bit of bondage, and delving into all manner of practices that would have her banned from America's toy bin for life. On her website (where you should go right now for a full catalog of amazing art), Clayton claims, "I can't explain how my mind works, or why these ideas come to it." Surely, a decent Feminist Studies post-grad paper could be written about the hows and whys at work here—but that's not our job. Instead, sit back and take in our favorite shots of Clayton's girly gore, then hop over to her site and concoct your own theories. Just make sure your boss, or the kids, ain't watching. (Animal)
