10 Reasons your doll makes a better model than you

16" Goodreau "Secret"

Here are a few reasons that your dolls - from Barbies to BJDs - are much more pleasant models to deal with than their human counterparts. (If you think of any additional ones, please add them.)
  1. She has a perfect body.
  2. Her weight doesn't fluctuate (unless an arm falls off).
  3. She doesn't require any undergarments for support - those plastic parts aren't going anywhere.
  4. Her outfits require less fabric.
  5. Her wardrobe takes up less closet space than yours.
  6. She can hold a pose for a LONG time.
  7. Labor laws don't require you to offer her a salary or benefits.
  8. If sleeves or pant legs are too narrow, you can pop her hands or feet off to get her clothes on. (Okay, so this probably can be achieved with a human, but it would be a long, painful, expensive & messy process.)
  9. She doesn't require food or water, which means she can't spill them on your clothes and ruin them.
  10. She won't give you any attitude. (Actually, scratch that. I don't know how the manufacturers do it, but the occasional dolls seems to have some "sass" built in.)


  1. She doesn't scream if you accidentally jab her with a needle.

  2. Good one, Aubrey! And I've definitely done it!

  3. Two more:

    1. She doesn't chicken out at the last minute or have an anxiety attack before the show.

    2. She doesn't get drunk and wobble or trip in her high heels (or complain about how much they hurt her feet).


  4. She doesn't act like a total diva and learn nothing after 5 arrests and community service.

    She doesn't refuse to get out of bed for less than $10,000.00

  5. LOL! :)

    Maybe I'm approaching this whole "house diva" thing wrong. I had a sales guy stop by yesterday, and he asked if I worked outside the home. And he said, "Oh, we call y'all house divas." And maybe I'm selling myself short a bit. Maybe one of these days I should say, "Dear, I'm not getting out of this bed for less than $10,000 today. It's just not worth my while!"
