Amy Kilgore steam pressed a costume to be ready for sale at the new “Barbie, The Dreamhouse Experience,” which opens on Valentine’s Day at the Mall of America. The 30,000-square-foot exhibit is drenched in pink and designed with more than 20 pounds of glitter. It ­features lots of closet space — as Barbie would surely need — to display outfits from some of her more than 100 inspirational careers. Also included in the dreamhouse are showcases displaying 350 Barbie collector dolls, as well as animation, photography and interactive games that ­incorporate Barbie’s best friends, family (remember Skipper?) and pets.
