Barbie for big girls.

Soda Shop Barbie

Bill Greening has given the BFC his next installment in the Willows, WI line that is continuing to pay homage to Midwest Americana nostalgia.  This one is only available to BFC members, and a nice perk of membership this year in my opinion.  How can you not find this one adorable?!!  That face!!  Awwwww….makes me want to pull up an upholstered chrome stool and slurp down a milkshake.  Nostalgia isn’t cheap though folks…she comes with a hefty price tag of $75.  You do get some adorable little extras though.   And, it’s pink and there is a poodle involved…enough said, I’m buyin’.   Excellent work Mr. Greening!!  One question though, where are the saddle shoes?!  Guess they really wouldn’t have gone with the look.

2016 Silkstone News!!!

Well, well, well.  Thanks to Rogier and Dutch Barbie World’s super sleuthing, we have some new info on the 2016 articulated Silkstone line.   Many collectors have known for a while that there would be a Trench Coat silkstone and a Glam Dress silkie but no images.  Today that changed when these images were posted on a European sales site.  I was hoping for some released info ahead of Toy Fair this week and it looks like the European market has obliged.

**Note, these images are prototype only and no indication of actual product**

Disclaimer out of the way, they look like valid promo shots to me so I will share them.  Keep in mind that Mattel has not “officially” released information on these but then they have been slow as molasses to release any information so…make up your own minds.

EEEEEEEEEE!  In a puddle with pure delight right now.  A couple of weeks back, I was chatting with my friend and fellow blogger,  Rogier over at Dutch Barbie World, and we were both discussing an outfit we had seen on Instagram and how much we liked it and how we were hoping it would be produced.  I think I might have even joked “ Wouldn’t it be perfect if this was on a Silkstone?!”

Anywhoo…and it appears to be coming true!!!  Thank you Robert Best!!!  Best of all people…this girl has some jewelry!!!!

Articulated Silkstone Now Available to Order

But she won’t be shipping until March 1st folks.  If you want her sooner, look to the dealers, they appear to be getting them first.  I like this idea of giving the dealers first dibs on shipment.  It makes sense to me and it helps support those dealers that have been loyally selling Mattel’s collector products for all these years.  I called my trusty dealer Barb of Windy City Dolls the moment I saw these ladies showing up on Ebay ( not happy that this is where the first ones showed up but not surprised either).  She sent one over as soon as they arrived at her shop.

So…what do I think?  I think the face on this first Silkstone of 2016 is a winner.  It is one of the best facial screenings I have seen in a while from the BFMC.  Very soft, and pretty.  The black dress is basic.  The material is nice and of a good weight…but basic.  The boots are…basic.  They are plastic people and almost impossible to get off unless you use the hot water trick **see below.   No jewelry, purse with this one nor undergarments..yep that’s right…Barbie is going full commando. 

The bigger question I think is what do I think of the body of this doll.  First and foremost, the dimensions are NOT the same as previous BFMC Silkstone bodies.  The bust is most definitely smaller.  Clothing does not fit exactly the same which surprises me as I believe Mr. Best said that the body was going to be the same proportions in the video announcing the articulated bodies.   I am not saying the body is bad…just different dimensions and for us redressers, that will be an issue.  The material feels weighty and solid which is nice and the joints appear to be solid and stay where you position them.  It is basically ok…but not great.  Here is why:  1) The articulation on the joints is minimal except for the legs.  This girl can do the splits if she wants but she cant rotate her hand enough to fully bend it one way or the other…it only goes a little bit one way or the other.  She can just barely put her hands on her hips.  Compare the functionality with Integrity Toys dolls and you will find that IT bodies are loads ahead as far as flexibility.  The new Silkstone body can however, do the splits whereas IT dolls cannot.  Not sure how that is something I will utilize unless I get the letch to do Gymnast Barbie, or Pole Dancing Barbie or perhaps contortionist Barbie.  You never know…it could happen.  I am hopeful that the next iterations of this body will beef up the bust size and include some additional rotation in the joints.  My other big concern with these new bodies are the rough edges and seams that show.  The knee joint on the one I received had a big ugly rough edge at the seam right above the knew joint.  Some may argue that you will hardly ever see that…maybe but in the dress she came in, it was VERY evident.  It’s not worthy of sending back, it’s just sloppy work on the part of the factory.  Am I expected now to file down the seams of Silkstone dolls that I receive? 

On the very positive side however, the doll is only $40.  That is an extremely low price point for a Silkstone Barbie doll.  So…messy seams and all, this doll photographs beautifully.  I admit, I had to pin the gown on her so it fit more securing up top.  It was made to be worn by the older body.  She does look good though and I guess each collector will have to decide for themselves if she is a good fit for their collection.  I am keeping mine for the present and still hopeful for the year ahead for the BFMC.  I think it will be a very much paired down year but time will just have to tell on that one.

Beatuiful dress was made by Hilda of Bellissima Couture.

Oh..and as an added not to my loyal readers…After filing multiple DCMA claims with various accounts on Pinterest and Instagram all of which were cutting the watermark off my photos and passing them off as their own, I will have to start putting even larger and more intrusive watermarks on my photos.  Not my choice people but there you have it.  Sometimes…I just don’t understand some people. 

**Hot Water Boot Trick**  To help get those pesky black boots off, I heated up a cup of water to almost boiling then stuck the legs and boots in for about 30-35 seconds.  Using a towel because they will be hot, boots should slid right off.  If not, put the legs with boots back in the water for a bit more.

I just received the first of three of the 2015 revamped NuFace line that I ordered.  All I can say is she is stunning!  The facial screening is absolutely beautiful in my opinion.

The shoe strings were too short for me to tie into a bow so I ended up knotting them in the back and tucking the ends into the shoes.  Not a bad fix.  It will be a pain to untie and redress though.  The jewelry is simple but sturdy and appropriate given the very clean chic lines of the outfit.  Love the red, red lips and simple and elegant facial screening.  The hair was really good when I deboxed  but I wanted the bangs to lie closer to the head so I did end up pinning the end of the swoop of her bangs so It would lay closer to the head.   Looking forward to redressing this beauty.

tumblr_lkjxss9eTr1qba78m

Oh yes again!!!  My poor, poor wallet is toast but Stefan and I are happy.  How amazing is this Imogen?!  Love the smoky eye and beautiful slightly tan Hungarian skin stone.  It’s so edgy chic!!  Perfect for the newly revamped and emerging Nu.Face line.

It looks like the Nu.Face team is going back to Balmain for inspiration here and can I just say…good call on NOT doing the ruffled pants.  Looks like there may be some Alexander MCQueen going on as well with all the skulls.

2016 Inspirations-The Year Ahead

So…I am sitting here this morning with my morning cup of java ( hating the fact that its non fat creamer because I am doing that “lets do a diet” to start the year off right thing)  and getting inspiration for the year of blogging ahead.  I finally have some free time ahead of me and really want to devote more time to this blog that I love and the collection that is such a hobby of joy for me to photograph and talk about.  As I was sinking my teeth into the first few screens of Pinterest and Instagram images for the morning,  I stumbled upon a number of images that just took flight in my head and had me thinking about dioramas and lots of yummy content for the blog.  I just have to share.

I don’t know about you guys but I love illustrations.  I particularly enjoy fashion illustrations which is why I have a number of limited prints by Robert Best.   If you follow the Barbie Instagram account, you might have already enjoyed this woman’s work.  I have to admit, I’m a newbie to her lovely illustrations but I am already a huge fan.  Her name is Kerrie Hess

Aren’t these scrumptious!!!  Now…to figure out how to percolate some of these illustrations and ideas into background and diorama ideas for our 1/6 ladies.  Oh yes, Rebecca is inspired now.

2016 BFMC Articulated Silkstone Sneaked

This is not an official sneak from Mattel but it is all over the internet and social media so I am going to share it here.  This was first reported by my very fine friend and fellow blogger Rogier of Dutch Barbie World.  Zlatan Zukanovic posted some amazing and beautiful photos on his Instagram account a few days ago of what appear to be the first articulated Silkstone.  Her face is adorable!!

Gorgeous right?!!  Then…this afternoon…guess what shows up on Ebay!

BDKN07 

BDKN07A

Original listing is here.  Not a word from Mattel, not a sneak, not a whisper.  I find this very interesting and I also question the sales hype of the BFC where they tout that the club is “a passionate collecting community with unparalleled access to the world of Barbie”.  Yes, the collecting community is unparalleled in this arena but I am no longer sure how much of that is due to Mattel.  It seems that more and more we are finding and receiving information from sources other than Mattel.  Perhaps this is just the way things go with social media being the way it is or…perhaps this is just a marketing team that doesn’t really seem to know what they are doing.  Either way, it looks like reaching out and watching things like Instagram, Ebay and Facebook are the way to get information going forward.  Love the photos that Zlatan did so it is not a chore to look at his lovely photos whenever he posts.  Bonus!

When this beauty is available….I’m buying!!  Smile

2016 BFC Membership Renewal Open to Current Members…

…and I am honestly conflicted about it.  I went ahead and purchased a membership ( and had difficulties doing it see story below) but I am conflicted as to whether this is something I would really recommend to a new or even seasoned collector at this point.

Here is what I am liking about this years club.

1) AA Silkstone in a blue suit looks scrumptious!!  She will be a BFC exclusive so only available to the club.  This may be worth the $25 alone and is perhaps the main reason I signed back up this year.  Mr. Best, you get my vote…your tech department does not.

2)  Soda Shop Barbie ( part of the Willows, WI  line) is ADORABLE.  Love the poodle skirt and love where Bill Greening has taken and seems to be taking this line.  Well done Mr. Greening.

3) The Free gift is a chair!  And it seems to be the same pattern as the gilt chairs in the dioramas we all love so much from BFMC.  But…it’s black and not gold or gilt.  Hmmmmm… see more on this below.

 

Here is what I am not liking about this years club:

1) The chair is black and not gilt or gold.  I mean we can spray paint…no problem … but there is some work involved with that one.  You need to make sure it’s the right gold…and does that white seat cover come off?  Is it cloth or is it plastic?  It’s totally doable…just wish they had sprung the extra buck and had them sprayed gold is all.  I was kind of primed for the gold based on what was said in the promotional video about the articulated silkstone’s.  But…free is free so guess I really can’t complain.  Will take it and say “Thank you!”

2) The free gift doesn’t come until March?  Why the three month delay?  Yes, I say three months because I suspect this puppy won’t be mailed until late March.  Oh and read the fine print people…in order to get said chair, you need to have signed up by 03/31/16.

3) NOT liking the troubles I experienced on the “improved” website.  I had to sign in multiple times to get my account to recognize me as a BFC member and therefore allowed to purchase a membership today.  Once that hurdle was jumped,  I experienced the “waiting room” and once I made it out of the waiting room and had the item in my cart, I attempted to actually pay for my membership.  Here is what I got

BFC 2016 2

What!!  My response to the screen was “ You have got to be kidding me!  This was supposed to be the “improved system”.  Do you want my business and money or not Mattel?!!

After about 4 minutes, I went back in and was able  to re-enter all my payment info and successfully complete my transaction but for 4 minutes I contemplated whether or not it was worth it.  This BC website is seriously affecting my love of Barbie and my collecting mojo.  I am just not feeling the love from Mattel when stuff like this happens and the more it happens, it makes me question why I am giving my money to them.  I hate to say it but there it is.  Just expressing my concern and sadness.    Oh and the graphic you see above…the nice one with the pictures and explanation of the club…it’s only visible if you sign out of your membership account and are looking at the BC site as a non -member.  What?!!  So members were not able to actually see the free gift chair on the product page when they paid for their membership but people who are thinking about signing up for the first time can see it?  Can someone please, please explain this one to me?!! 

So…here I am….conflicted because I am in essence advertising the Barbie Fan Club and including links in this blog post for people if they are interested and yet…I am really disappointed at how the roll out of this club has played out.  Is this a harbinger for tough times ahead?  Will I continually have problems purchasing?  Will I have to log in and out of the website to see content that I am interested in?  Will I ever be able to search the BC website and find what I am looking for?  I remain hopeful but guarded.  Mattel, are you hearing any of this?

I guess what I will leave potential buyers with is a big fat CAVEAT EMPTOR .

                                       Caveat Emptor – let the buyer beware

If you are a current BFC member, you can sign up for the club now.  If you are a new member, you can start signing up a week from now on 1/19/2016. 

2016 Golden Globes: Pass the Ketchup and the Mustard

Weird title right?  Let me explain..  While there were many colors on the red carpet last night, I was surprised at the number of ketchup reds ( almost orange ) and mustard yellows.  Some of my favorite looks of the evening fell into these two favorite American condiment colors so I decided to go with it in the title.  It was quirky and fun. 

Pass the ketchup please!:

Jennifer Lawrence in a fabulous Dior with a stunning diamond choker.  Loved the cutouts in this gown.  One of my favorite looks of the night.

Ketchup has expired!! :

Natalie Dormer in J. Mendel.  Ummmmm… time to lose the oxen like yoke around the throat.  Wrong, just plain wrong.

A little Mustard goes a long way:

Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli.  This was the only mustard I was satisfied with last night.  Ms. Lopez rocked this one.  Let’s face it folks, not everyone can wear this color and you need a certain amount of attitude to do it.  She can and did it.

And…extra snaps to Ms. Lopez as she managed to make this dress look WAY better than it did on the runway for 2015 Fall Couture.2015 Fall Couture Giambattista Valli

Too much mustard!!!

America Ferrera in Jenny Packham. First of all, if the sales lady said this color looked good on you Ferrera…she was on commission.  Secondly, if you wanted to pull off matronly, this cut and style nailed it.  Not sure that was what she was going for.

Lola Kirke in Marchesa. Does Grecian draping ever work in mustard yellow?  I’m not sure it does. I love Lola Kirke and I adore the show Mozart in the Jungle ( my favorite new show and so happy they won last night!!!) but this color and styling fell short on her.  Also, the shoes with pearl ankle straps does NOT belong in this picture. lola-kirke in Monique Lhuillier from eonline

Leaving the condiments behind, lets talk about the sequin love affair going on at last nights Golden Globes.

Brie Larson in Calvin Klein.   Congrats to Ms. Larson on her win for best actress last night.  She was Miss Golden Globe embodied in this gown.  If I had abs like her, I would want to show them off in a dress like this too.  I loved that she kept the hair and jewelry to a minimum.  The dress is bling enough..she didn’t need anything more.

Portia Doubleday in Naeem Khan.  Forget having to go to the disco, this lady brought the disco ball with her…in fact…she wore it to the party.  The cut was ok on this one but the overall shiny ( as in…can be seen from space) effect of the gown turned me off.

Kate Bosworth in Dolce and Gabbanna.  I like pink…but pink sequins?…to this extent?…not so much.  There is just way too much going on with this dress.  And let’s just state the obvious here people, this woman NEEDS a cheeseburger.

Julianne Moore in Tom Ford.  Can sequins look matronly?  Apparently Tom Ford can make that happen.  Was not feeling this look at all.

Bryce Dylan Howard in Jenny Packham.  And….apparently Jenny Packham can make sequins look matronly too!!  Tom, meet Jenny….Jenny, meet Tom.  Bryce is not 50 but she is kind of channeling it here.

Regina King in Krikor Jabotain.  I give you “Panic at the Disco”!!  They may be a band but this picture embodies that phrase.  What on earth?!!  Is she channeling a super hero with the cape?  To the designer:  Did you feel the cape would somehow elevate this sequined gone amuck sheath?  To the stylist: What did Regina ever do to you to have you do this to her?  To Regina:  Did you at least get to feel like a superhero in this getup?  In the indomitable words of one of my mentors…Edna Mode…”NO CAPES!”

While sequins and plunging necklines were prevalent on the red carpet last night, The remainder of my picks and pans fell into the more understated category.  For example

When YSL works…

Saorise Ronan in Yves Saint Laurent Couture. Stunning on her!  She looked so elegant and regal compared to the disco walking down the carpet.  I loved that the hair, makeup and jewelry were very simple and elegant as well.  Nice work stylist!!

When YSL doesn’t work….

Jane Fonda in Yves Saint Laurent .  And the cape/founce/16th century ruff/ ode to Mexican tile roofing around her neck was a good idea??  I believe the queens bed skirt that Helena Bonham Carter usually wears to awards shows was repurposed for this ensemble last night.  I refer to a comment made earlier…”NO CAPES!”Jane Fonda in YSL from Huffington Post

Jada Pinkett Smith in Versace.  LOVED this look on her from head to toe.  Gorgeous!

Laverne Cox in Elizabeth Kennedy.  New Designer Alert!!!  Elizabeth Kennedy folks.  She had two very strong looks walking the red carpet last night.  We will be seeing this woman’s work again on the red carpet I am sure.

Lady Gaga in Versace.  Well hello Ms. Monroe!!  Didn’t think the hips needed to be exaggerated that much but a small negative in the overall beauty of this look.  Beautifully styled and worn by the talented Ms. Gaga.

Lily James in Marchesa.  A lovely ode to a Grecian urn and another example of how less is definitely more sometimes.  The stylist showed restraint and the overall look is better for it .
