Ending Bratz Games?

There have been more than a few times over the last few years that I’ve wondered if we were looking at the end of the Bratz games. There were some amazing dolls, movies and stories to play with when the Bratz games were first introduced to the market of fashion dolls. Then they sort of petered out. Of course, the lawsuit that Mattel filed against the makers of the Bratz games was mostly responsible for this, but then there is the natural inclination of children to move on to the next great thing.

It’s interesting, however, that every time I’ve honestly considered that Bratz games might have reached their end, I’ve been shown to be wrong. The Bratz games are still going strong, even if they aren’t quite what they were just a few years ago. Today you can find Bratz games in the fashion doll aisle, and online. The dolls are still the same urban fashonistas who look great and wear the most stylish of the fashion doll clothing, but the question remains: Just how long will these dolls stay around?

Bratz Games and New Fashion

If you’re addicted to dress up games and you’re interested in fashion, the best way to get the scoop on the newest styles is to play  Bratz games. Bratz games are the sort of dress up games that allow you to actually see modern fashion on the fashion dolls. Normally you’d enjoy dress up games with princesses or Barbies which are essentially princesses with the various dresses and costumes that they wear.

Bratz games are more urban than the Barbie games. They are more fashionable, in fact, which is great news for anyone who is actually tying to put together a good look based on the clothing they play with on the computer screen. Of course, there are plenty of different styles of Bratz games and some are much newer than others, but there are always more updated games for Bratz than there would be for virtually any other sort of dress up games.

Bratz Games and Spring Fashions

I’ve noticed over the years that the Bratz games do an excellent job with fashion from many different seasons and events, but they don’t seem to do as good a job with the spring fashions. In general spring fashions are flighty and airy with light colors and fun patterns. The Bratz games, however, tend to focus on darker, more urban designs that aren’t exactly what is most stylish when it’s all said and done.

This may be because the Bratz dolls aren’t as trendy as others would be, but the Bratz games have long been praised as the stylish ones – more so even than Barbie who seems to be perpetually stuck in a time warp of the early 1990s in her fashions. But then, maybe the Bratz games aren’t much better. Perhaps the Bratz games are stuck in the early part of the 21st century – prior to their legal problems. But in all honesty – how much would it really hurt to have a Bratz doll wear a sundress?

Prom and Bratz Games

While the Bratz games may not be the first thing you think of when you’re considering prom dresses, they are the perfect platform for deciding things about style and function for your big day. Not sure what I mean? Consider the purpose of Bratz dolls – they are all about urban fashion. They don’t wear big pageant dresses and they don’t dress up like brides.

If you’re looking for a prom dress that would be unique, fun and exciting, look outside of the proverbial box. Bratz games are full of fun and funky style elements that you can consider for your own design or that will, at the very least, inspire you as you start your search for the very perfect thing to wear to your big day. At the very least, go with the traditional prom dress but pair it with killer shoes!

Bratz Games and Make Up

At first it might seem like a strange combination – Bratz games and make up, but in truth, there is a lot of similarities and overlap between the little fashion dolls and games and the world of cosmetics. This is particularly true for the larger versions of the dolls where their big doe eyes and pouty mouths are more visible. If you’re trying to achieve a more youthful look, it may be that the Bratz games makeup is exactly what you need to try.

Like so many things, our makeup use tends to fall into a rut after awhile. We don’t use any new techniques – we just go with what we know. But when Bratz burst onto the scene, they were problematic because they had such urban, modern make up and styles. If you wanted a simple solution to trying out a new look in your make up drawer, simply pick up a doll and follow the patterns and colors that the doll uses. While it’s hard to predict how you’ll look in the new shades and styles, it’s safe to say it will certainly be a new look for you!

Bratz Games and Growing Up

Everyone has to grow up, and sadly it’s not always fun and games. But there is a way you can continue to enjoy being young and carefree – Bratz games. That may not have been the first thing to spring into your mind, but the Bratz games are a great chance for girls who are growing too old for dolls to continue to do exactly what they want to do – play with dolls!

When you play with Bratz games, you’re not doing the typical fashion games. Bratz dolls don’t dress up in wedding gowns and princess costumes. They dress up in the modern clothing that any girl would love to wear to intermediate or high school. When you dress up your Bratz games either online or at your house, you’re playing with modern fashion – trendy fashion – that you can really enjoy. Not only will you be able to have the fun of playing dress up for one more afternoon, but you’ll also be able to take away a few fashion tips of your own to use in your own wardrobe.
