The traditional gift for a 15th wedding anniversary is crystal. Music super-couple [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Faith Hill[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tim McGraw[/lastfm] are going for the downright unusual by getting their likenesses in Barbie doll form.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been hyper-involved with the creation of their Barbie dolls. They have sent photos of the clothes their dolls will wear, hair styles, makeup, and accessories including Tim’s famous black cowboy hat. They know exactly how they want their dolls to look.
It took two months and a small army to create the first mock-ups. ”With real celebrity likenesses, it is definitely more challenging because these are a lot of factors to consider. Our vision is to capture the true essence of the celebrity, and I think we did that with Tim and Faith, ” says Linda Kyaw, a designer for the Barbie Collector series.
Faith and Tim met in 1995 at a country radio seminar. They married in October 1996 and have 3 daughters. The Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Doll Gift Set is available for order now for $69.95 at BarbieCollector.com. The set will be released on September 1st.
