It looked like when my big sister went to college in 1964. Let me tell you, that same campus looked very different by 1974.

And it looks like most of her skin is covered, and she doesn’t have giganticly disproportionate breasts–so call it a victory for girls everywhere!

Here’s more on Allan–from the same website, under a tag called “homobilia.”

How would Barbie’s sweet shop skirt *ever* fit into those student desks?

Ken is not just “hard to recognize” when dressed as a harlequin–he’s freakishly scary!

I think not.

Ken was envious of his beard because her wardrobe was so much more fabulous!

Barbie got told that she couldn’t study Greek, because it was only “for men” (which made Barbie wonder what exactly it was that Greek women spoke). Midge was advised by the nice old professor to just focus on getting her Mrs. and not waste her time on that nasty ol’ B.S.

Barbie also got a lot of nasty looks when it came to be game time. Most of these came from Ken because he wanted to be wearing the quarterback’s uniform, not stuck as a drum major! But then Ken thought better of complaining because, after all!, this was the 1950s and some nasty type in marketing could have made him wear a beanie, fergawdsake!
