Anyone remember the 1965 television series “Honey West”? I was too young to be aware of the show at its inception, but not long ago, I was introduced to it for the very first time. What a cool concept for 60’s television! Private Eye Honey West, was smart, stylish, and always got her man! The series was based on the Honey West novels by G.G. Fickling, (a pseudonym for Gloria and Forest Fickling). Unfortunately, the series only lasted 1 year. Even so, there still were promotional products available like the Honey West doll, clothing, and some swanky P.I. accessories! (Gun, spy glasses, handcuffs, and even a pet ocelot)
Honey West had the coolest pad, the hippest clothes, was a master at Judo/Karate, and was one smart cookie! All very Barbie-like to me. Therefore, inspirational when it comes to having a little photographic fun with my dolls and furniture.
I’m still viewing my collection of the Honey West series on DVD, but for your enjoyment, here’s my repro Fashion Queen doing her best Honey West imitation with some orignal Honey West clothing and accessories.
