I went last week to visit an exhibition here in Valencia about POP IDOLS. It was great, mainly pop memorabilia, hundreds and hundreds of album covers, some period clothes, etc...

But the surprise was the collection of dolls (Barbies and Kens) dressed as main characters of the pop music history. They were made by Pablo Llorens (google his name and admire his stop motion works), and in my opinion are the perfect balance between the cheesy Barbie look and incredibly detailed outfits. Enjoy... (and guess who are them)

Excuse the poor picture quality: Phone camera, exhibition lights, glass panels everywhere...

These are really bad.

But they are somehow endearing.  i'm not sure what to think of the blackface dolls, though.

And through a purple haze, I can just about make out Hendrix. And as he is right handed I Guess that must be George Harrison.

A be a big congratulations to the first doll. Is it Cliff Richard?

Arrrrh no shoes must be Sandy Shore. Either Diana Ross and two suprems, or Prince Charles favourites the three degrees.

Do I see two brothers throwing their love away? The Everly's and maybe George Michael with Pepsi before his careless whisper.

Last guess. He looks pretty vacant and she looks near death. Sid and Nancy???

Anyone want to join in the game?

Time to reveal some identities! Must confess it's pretty difficult in some of them because they're generic urban tribes or specific Spanish stars. But Sparky did pretty well thou!  cheers 



The KING (not mine) ELVIS



Generic couple of rockers. The lace shirt of the boy is truly fantastic!  Shocked 



The SUPREMES



The DUO DINAMICO (no, they're not B&R), a Spanish mass idols in the early sixties, and if I'm not mistaken, still active  Rolling Eyes 






The two above are of the same girl, from a veeery succesful movie about a Spanish girl who wanted to be "modern" in the very early sixties... la chica ye-ye! This strange name came from the sound that most Spanish people could take out from a "modern" song in English at that time: Ye-ye (yeah yeah)  Razz 



A generic Beatle, thou Sparky is right: It must be GH



Flower power! Generic hippy couple



Janis Joplin & Jimmy Hendrix



Brian Eno & David Bowie



Meet Tony Manero (aka John Travolta) on any Saturday



Boney M. They were really popular here in Spain.



NO FUTURE!!! (weren't they right?) Generic punk couple



Another generic couple: New Romantics
