The Fashion Show is always one of the most colorful and memorable events of the Convention where Conventioneers replicate a Barbie®, Ken®, friend, family, celebrity or designer fashion. We would love for you to bring your fashion, along with your energy and dynamic personality, and be a part of our show! Or, assemble a group of friends to do a whole series together with you! The show is about fashion from any era, not just the ‘60s. No outfits will be duplicated, though, so the sooner you fill in your form, the better the chance you have of getting your first selection. Please do not begin work on your outfit until you receive confirmation of your participation. 


NEW THIS YEAR! We are adding more choices for participants. We are also looking for 12 participants to create a OOAK (One Of A Kind) non-Mattel fashion and embody one of our 12 Suspects (more details below). If you are interested in representing one of our Suspects, you may also add that choice to the form.

Fashion Show participants who sign up by May 26, 2024, and are selected, will get their names in the Official 2024 Convention Souvenir Book.  Fashion Show participants also receive a specially designed identification as thanks for their participation. The Fashion Show will be held on Friday afternoon, but please note that you will also need to attend the mandatory rehearsal on Thursday evening.

BECOME A SUSPECT!  We are looking for 12 participants to represent each of our 12 Suspects on stage! Once selected, the participant will design and create a OOAK (One Of A Kind) non-Mattel fashion that incorporates the Suspect’s color palette. The selected participant will receive a color code that can be used as a guide when choosing complimentary shades and hues of that color for their fashion and accessories. The final touch is adding a dynamic personality to the Suspect, with inspiration based off the Suspect character bios.


MAKE A SPLASH!  We are transforming our Fashion Show stage into the DREAMHOUSE™ Pool House, so we would love to also see some of our Fashion Show models recreate one of the many Barbie® or Ken® doll swim ensembles!
