Recently Barbie released their career dolls one of which was a perfect gift for Marcus Montgomery’s wife who was celebrating her birthday and who is also a game developer herself.
Well, when he tried to purchase the Barbie he realized that they did not have one that quite matched his beautiful wife’s skin tone and so he came up with a simple solution to this common problem, according to ABC News:
Marcus Montgomery knew exactly what to get his wife for her birthday after Barbie released its newest career doll — the Game Developer Barbie.
Still, when Lisette Titre-Montgomery, his wife of two years and a game developer herself, could only find the doll in one skin tone she decided against getting it. That was until Montgomery had an idea: Purchase a Fashionista Barbie in a darker skin tone and dress her up as Game Developer Barbie. And voilà, problem solved.
Montgomery, 42, who is also a game developer, said it only took him about 20 minutes to transform his wife’s Barbie.
“The hardest part was getting the doll out of the package,” he told ABC News, adding that he wanted to preserve the package to present his wife with her new doll.
Many people online have said that the Oakland, California, man is a genius after he shared now viral photos of his custom creation. But Montgomery said he doesn’t think so.
“Let’s be real, mothers across America have been doing this for years,” he said. “My ultimate goal was to make my wife smile.
Bet she was thrilled!!!
