A rather lackluster dress-up/designer game featuring the doll herself, and a sequel to 2004's Barbie Fashion Show.

NOTE: Most of the game's data, including all graphics and models, can be found in Data.dat. All .MWT files are merely .png images with a different extension.

Unused Graphics

Early Legal Notice

The game's data contain earlier variations of the legal notice graphics seen upon booting for each of the six available languages. They are all labeled as (OLD)LEGAL.PNG, with the English text being found in the root of the Data file, and the others being found in the EURO folder. These older variations contain an additional line of text reading (and translating to) "The ratings icon is a registered trademark of the Entertainment Software Association.", and, save for the English graphic, use a different font.

Ready Graphic

This "Ready" graphic can be found in SCENEGAMEFASHIONSHOW\GANDATA\READY.MWT, and doesn't seem to fit the game's aesthetic at all. While it is called by one of the files, SHOWMOVIE.MWG, it is never displayed.



The folder associated with the main studio environment, SCENEGAMEFASHIONSHOW\DATA\DRESSROOM, contains several early variations of the textures used in them, as well as some placeholders:

Folder 01

This folder contains some visible placeholder textures for each of the objects on the studio:







Folder ROOM\NORMAL (Start of Game)

__POSTERPHOTO02.TGA is a slightly different version of the poster seen on the right side of the room. The only difference seems to be that one of the pictures, which is directly taken from a cutscene from Barbie Fashion Show, was originally a still of this game's opening movie. This texture is also found in the folder STAGE2.

_SOFA01B.TGA is an early version of SOFA01.TGA, the texture used for the sofa to the left of the wardrobe and Model Board, which uses more washed out colors and has weaker lighting.

Early Final
BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalsofatextureEARLY.png BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalsofatextureFINAL.png

_WALL02.TGA is an early graphic for the walls near the ceiling and floor of the main studio. Notably, it is much simpler, lacking textures and more detailed lighting.

Early Final
BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalwalltextureEARLY.png BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalwalltextureFINAL.png

_WALLPAPER02.TGA is an early variation of WALLPAPER02.TGA, the texture used for the center of the walls of the main studio. Notably, a darker shade of pink, similar to the ceiling/floor walls, is used, and the way the shadows are created for the objects is different. WALLPAPER03.TGA is another early variation, with weaker shading and the same shadow procedure as the final graphic.

BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalwallpapertextureEARLIER.png BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalwallpapertextureEARLY.png BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-normalwallpapertextureFINAL.png

WALL0402.JPG is an early version of WALL0402.TGA, a wall texture. It notably uses a different pattern, which is also seen in other early graphics for this studio.

Likewise, WALL05.JPG is an early version of WALL05.TGA, another wall texture. This early graphic has the pattern being larger and repeating less times.

Early Final

FFC91B37F3C34E78.JPG, however, has seemingly no final equivalent, and consists of a brown texture likely meant for a wall or a pillow.


Folder ROOM\STAGE2 (from Task 5)


CABINET02.PNG is an early texture for the cabinets to the right and left of Barbie. Notably, it uses much more vibrant colors and has smaller drawers, which are painted blue and red, rather than all of the cabinet being a light beige tone.

Early Final
BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-stage2cabinetEARLY.png BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-stage2cabinetFINAL.png

This folder contains another folder labeled _BK(BF_CHANGELINK), which contains earlier versions of some of the textures of this studio:

CABINET01.TGA is another early texture for the cabinets. Notably, they lack a shaded area on the left side. Due to this earlier texture having an alpha channel that only highlights the borders for modeling purposes, an alternate version with the alpha channel was also uploaded. There is also an associated light map, CABINET01_L.TGA, which is also different from its final counterpart.

CHAIR02.TGA is an early variation of CHAIR022.TGA, which is the texture for the upper part of the chair seen to the right of Barbie. It is colored blue, much like the chair seen in the initial studio, and resembles an early texture from there, though it's not an exact match.

Early Final

FLOOR LAMP.TGA is an alternative texture for the lamp to the left of Barbie. The final texture is labeled FLOOR LAMP02.TGA, and has a different pattern. Due to this earlier texture having an alpha channel that only highlights the borders for modeling purposes, an alternate version with the alpha channel was also uploaded. There is also an associated light map, LAMP02_L.TGA, which has darker shading than its final counterpart, FLOOR LAMP02_L.TGA.

PIC01_L.TGA and PIC02_L.TGA are early light maps for the portraits seen on the far sides of the room. Their overall lighting values have been exchanged from their final counterparts, PHOTO01_L.TGA and PHOTO02_L.TGA, with the former unused texture greatly resembling the latter used one.

PUPPET.TGA is an early texture for the mannequin seen behind Barbie. Compared to the final texture, PUPPET02.TGA, it is noticeably colored pink with a gray base, rather than yellow with a pink base. Due to this earlier texture having an alpha channel that only highlights the borders for modeling purposes, an alternate version with the alpha channel was also uploaded. It also has an associated light map, PUPPET01_L.TGA, which has weaker lighting compared to its final counterpart, PUPPET02_L.TGA.

TABLE_LEGCOMPLETEMAP.TGA is an early texture for the legs that support the Design Table. It also has an associated light map file, TABLE_LEG_L.TGA, which is much darker than its final counterpart, TABLE_LEG02_L.TGA.

WALLPAPER023.TGA is an early graphic for the walls around the room, revealing that they were going to be beige and with a texture, rather than a solid purple wall like its used counterpart, WALLP0235.TGA. Its light map texture, WALLPAPER023_L.TGA, also has rougher shading, as well as dark areas where the portraits would be, unlike the final WALLP0235_L.TGA.

There's also a light map texture, labeled WINDOW02_L.TGA, which has weaker lighting and missing light areas between the upper panes, as seen in the final texture, WINDOW023_L.TGA.

WORKTABLE.TGA is an early texture for the Design Table's screen. Compared to the used texture, WORKTABLE2.TGA, the earlier one is less shiny, has more vibrant borders, and has the dress and pants icons swapped. Due to this earlier texture having an alpha channel that only highlights the borders for modeling purposes, an alternate version with the alpha channel was also uploaded. There is also a light map texture, labeled WORKTABLE_L.TGA, though it's only slightly darker than its final counterpart, WORKTABLE2_L.TGA.

Design Table Patterns

SCENEGAMEFASHIONSHOW\GANDATA\PATTERN\PATTERN_F2.MWT is an early version of the icons for the third task designs, which would normally be found in the folder PATTEN_F2 in that directory. While none of the colors are different, the patterns and stamps are completely different.

Early Final
BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-wpposeEARLY.png BarbiefsefsWINDOWS-wpposeFINAL.png

Thumbs.db File

Throughout the Data file are many Thumbs.db files, which were used to store image thumbnails in older versions of Windows. The one in the folder SCENEGAMEFASHIONSHOW\DATA contains a reference to a now non-existent texture labeled AAA.png, with a last modification date of March 27, 2008, 08:57:16. It consists of a placeholder texture labeled with "A.".


Unused Sound

The folder SceneGameFashionShow\Data\Sound\Effect in the game's directory contains the sound effects heard throughout gameplay. Among them is Crowd 5 sec 8000Hz.wav, an unused, lower-quality variation of Crowd 5 sec.wav, which is a crowd clapping sound that plays during fashion shows.

Unused Text

Build Date

Starting from offset 0x390DC of the game's executable, BarbieFashionShow.exe, is a build date, though given how far it is from when the game released (September 2008), it's most likely a leftover from a different game.

Tue Mar 13 10:42:28 2007

Indian Turquoise Leftover

Starting from offset 0x398EC of the game's executable, BarbieFashionShow.exe, is a set of credits associated with Indian Turquoise, an earlier game developed by CyberPlanet Interactive:
