Concept: The concept of the Barbie Funeral Kit is that children at a young age are experiencing a sense of death. Its all about the emotional effect that is to be placed on the child. I was thinking about a slogan or some sort of caption that goes along the lines of "Barbie Funeral Kit: Captures the sadness, without real death". Its not much at the moment, but I know it should be something along these lines. The children could possibley burry the toy in their own backyard just for fun so I might try to play into that as well. I want this project to look as if it was an actual rejected toy that was recall from store shelves, or not even made into production.... but, the product idea and advertisement was made as a way to introduce the new toy. So this is why I want to show the advertising and packaging aspects of the toy. I really like the way the child is shown playing with the Barbie set so this is one of the reasons that I want to try and incorporate both views into my project.
Composition: These images are composed of a Barbie Doll that's face was altered in photoshop to make her look as if she is dead. Its also shows two caskets that when placed together fit around the Barbie Doll to look as if she is actually placed inside them, and a floral arrangement and tombstone as accessories to go along with the kit. Each of these imahes were found online and changes to create the product shown on the top. The websites which I borrowed these images from are listed bellow, as well as in the previous blog post.
