These special-edition Pride 2020 pins by Baby Dear Harvest are a clever repurposing of the paragon of gender norms - a Barbie doll! The molds for these pins were made from dolls plucked from the Goodwill Bins here in Portland, Oregon. The doll hair is gone, but the bumpy scalp remains!
Each face has been hand-cast in multi-colored resin layers incorporating the color schemes of the Pride, Trans, and Genderqueer flags (the Barbies we should have grown up with).
Their Swarovski crystal eyes allow them to see the entire contents of one's soul without judgment, while their delicately painted lips whisper "You are perfect just as you are." Face it - we all need to hear that right now.

- Rainbow version is also available in Skipper size: H 1.25" x W 0.75"
- Materials include:
- Epoxy resin
- Swarovski rhinestones

WHAT DOES PRIDE MEAN TO YOU? | BABY DEAR HARVEST
Pride isn’t just a month, it’s a mindset. Celebrating the freedom to self-express and the courage to be one’s authentic self. Pride continually breaks down boring societal boundaries (yuck, boo) and transforms self-acceptance into self-love. RuPaul poses it best, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?!?!”
LGBTQIA+ Flags Face Pins by Baby Dear Harvest
Baby Dear Harvest is the brainchild of Megan Brevig and Trish Boyle, two friends who met at the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon. Bonding over a mutual fascination with taxidermy eyeballs and a morbid sense of humor, the two quickly joined forces and merged skills.
Baby Dear Harvest aims to make the morbid more palatable and downright delightful. Their aesthetic can be best described as a pastel goth with a healthy dose of twisted humor and a hint of country Western. Influences include cults, dark humor, mediocre beer, and taxidermy.
Baby Dear Harvest is a collaborative project which centers around repurposing materials from local businesses. Using digital fabrication and traditional techniques, they handcraft small-batch artistic wearables that are all slightly unique.
