Happily Ever After
Published on Monday, September 30, 2013 by

I am sad to say this is the final day of the September 2013 Photo Challenge!  It has been wonderful seeing all of your creative, beautiful, moving and funny photos.  You are so talented, and I thank you for sharing your work!

Today’s predetermined subject is “Happily Ever After.”  Fake Barbie is the subject for this theme, although she does not appear in the actual photo.

You see… Fake Barbie loved Real Ken with all her heart.  Alas, Real Ken was devoted to Real Barbie.  I hope you can follow this.  Over the years, Real Barbie became quite the independent plastic lady.  Once she finished medical school, she decided it was time to leave Real Ken and open her own practice.

With no one else around, Real Ken felt compelled to Booty Call Fake Barbie one too many times.  No flowers.  No lunch dates.  Just midnight calls.  Finally, Fake Barbie had enough and took matters in to her own hands.

With Ken finally out of the picture, it only took an instant for Fake Barbie and Real Barbie to realize they were actually deeply in love.  They soon purchased a condo in Denver, went Vegan and lived happily ever after.

*I took this picture at my favorite abandoned antique store.  Real Ken’s head was behind the building, placed just like this.  After taking this photograph I left him just as he was.  “Take nothing but pictures.  Leave nothing but footprints.  And Ken Heads.”

  • Uh, You should get some rest now. Nice horror story.

  • Boy, this little challenge seems to have ended just in time for you. It’s been fun visiting during the challenge. I’ve really enjoyed the approach you took throughout. Until next time, Katherine…

    Katherine, I am rolling on the floor and dying with laughter over this one!

    You are so clever and HILARIOUS, girl!

    Brilliant final photo!

    And yes, I too am so sad to see this end because I had a blast reading everyone’s posts this month.

    Well done! I applaud you!


  • Oh my god, this is hilarious. 😀 Awesome photo, and perfect story, Katherine. Thank you so much for participating in our challenge. i never know coming here if I will find a deep and moving post, or a severed Real Ken head in the dirt, and I absolutely love that about you. 😉

  • Ha ha ha ha! I love it!Fake Barbie rules!

    What I’m getting out of this marvelous tale is that both Fake Barbie and Real Barbie are living in Denver, which is where I live. If you happen to have their number or address, I’d love to drop by and say hello sometime. Probably not at midnight, tho. I like my head.

    Both of them, actually.

    Nice work, Katherine. I’m glad somebody had the guts to post something macabre today. You’re a twisted soul, and we like that about you.

  • Well I am glad that Fake Barbie and Real Barbie found their happy ending. Alas, poor Dead Ken did not. That is a great line…“Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. And Ken Heads.”

  • I adore how your mind works. That is a statement photo!

  • Jay of The Depp Effect

    So. That’s the end then. Pretty final, being beheaded.

  • How morbid. I like it 🙂 I’ve felt like knocking the head off this challenge more than once this past month.

  • FerdC

    Hahaha! Loving your dark side!
    I hope there is a 2014 Photo Challenge. I’ve been away from the blog scene for too long!
    Good stuff, Katherine! 🙂

  • Hahahaha! What a perfect finish! You’ve made my heart happy beyond words! In fact, I think I’m going to start leaving Ken heads all about town. (As soon as I collect some. I wonder if my friend Susan will donate any to the cause?) In the meantime, please give my regards to fake and real Barbie. I hope they’ll be very happy together in their condo. <3

  • Haha! A fitting end to Fake and Real Barbie’s story — a little like the 90’s film “Bound”.
    Have a great happily ever after — I hope that I will see you around!

  • Ha! Great story to go with it. Only time now before Barbie gets caught with this evidence!

  • I’m sad the challenge is over too! SO VERY SAD!

    But this photo? Literally made me laugh out loud! HA!


  • Thankfully I didn’t have a mouthful of Diet Coke because I just spit snorted! Great way to end this month of madness.
