In honor of Big B - I think a themed outfit might be in order. The theme is... ‘Ball and Chain’mail...or should that spelled 'male'? Anyhoo... all the items for the outfit can be obtained from the local Lowes or Home Depot - a codpiece made out of duct tape (fully lined, of course, to protect the family jewels - with leftover yarn or old swatches) . Since you cannot really go to the local smithy for chain mail - create a long, loose tunic out of either a chamois or one of those blue cotton work towels you get in a pack of 5, belted of course with some ball chain (the stuff used for fan pulls). Again - in a perfect world there would be leggings - but I think his sexy legs need to be showcased ‘au naturale’ - to drive the ladies crazy. And in lieu of a sword, he would sport a US 5 or 6 dpn - to beat off the hoards of women lusting after him.

Ken looks like he should be one of the village people...ah, but which one. Construction worker Ken? Leather chaps Ken? I think Barbie might find him hot as the Indian Ken...And we know how kinky Ken is...Maybe an outfit for each day. He might finally get laid! :)

Now, I adore KT's suggestion of the drag-time Ken. A tiara would ROCK!

My idea is to put him in a nice black tux with a black bow tie. He could accessorize this ensemble with sunglasses and a walkie talkie and earpiece, a la Men in Black. That way, he could look like a James Bond-esque fashion model while keeping the yarn and the knitted goods safe from monsters!

I could see Ken wearing surfer shorts and t-shirt holding a surfoard. It is summer after all!

I say use something you already have -- make him a kilt by wrapping a bit of roving around him. Or you could knit him a kilt - what, maybe 20 stitches and 6 rows? Granted, it wouldn't fit perfectly, but it's better than that thing he has on right now!

I think Ken is really a cross dresser. My vote? A tiara, a feather boa, a bikini and heels. I can't tell from here, but you may need to wax him first. Can you do a Brazilian on a guy? Just asking...

ITA no Speedos - but maybe a tiny sarong around his waist, like Hank Azaria's nudist scuba instructor character in the movie Along Comes Polly? *grin*

OR my daughter's Ken doll styles a Hawaiian shirt, shorts and sandals he got at Walmart. Very chic and comfy. :)

I think you should make something for the boy. It would involve a small purchase - perhaps at Walmart or Target- You will be creating a Tarzan outfit so you need a child's size tube sock, preferably in an animal skin print or orange color. If you can't find an animal print, then draw some dots on with a Sharpie marker. Next, clip out a shape on the toe of the sock where his head and one arm will fit through, and a hole for the other arm. Then try it on Mr. Ken. I'm sure he will love it! Voila! A Tarzan outfit for Ken! Yay!

I see Chris already pointed you in the direction of the website with the cow outfit and blue shoes. Hmm....I'll have to think about this one!

Chris

What the heck is Ken wearing right now?! Yikes. Heh, I updated today's blog entry with your contest info...

Hmm, here's a place that sells outfits. How about the Ken robe outfit?

Or simply the chef's hat and apron? (with the unfortunate effect that it leaves his butt bare and it's technically for Barbie...)

Consideing Ken's penchant for going nude I would say he is an exhibitionist. Or a Chippendale. Why not get Ken something in a leopard print, with an open shirt and stretch pants?

Kim

Ken could use some bike shorts and then he will be just like Big B but with blonde hair. Perhaps a matching shirt, helmet and pads (encourage Ken to use protection in all parts of his life). Whatever you do, don't buy Ken a Speedo - that is just disgusting!
