Tulabelle 2014

I.T. and David Buttry gave us another fabulous Tulabelle collection to pour over.  Just to remind people who this lady is…she is Poppy Parker’s granddaughter so some of the pieces she has in her wardrobe are vintage pieces from her grandmother’s fashion career.  Note: Gold lame coat on “Front Row” is same coat Poppy wears in “Spy-A-Go-Go”.  Cool continuity David!

Poppy Parker 2014 Reveal

The theme for this years very popular Poppy Parker line is “The Girl from I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y.”  Poppy and her friends are spies for this collection.  The accessory of the collection is a gun.  Each doll comes with one.  Gun control issues aside for a moment, it is kind of a cute accessory for this theme…if one can call a gun “cute”.  There were some big surprises with the reveal this year.  The biggest one was the addition of the quick switch head feature in the Poppy Parker line.  This means Poppy’s head can be popped off ( yes…pun intended) and switched to another head.  In this case, it is the villain ( Loni Lawrence who is called Sebina in this collection) who can quickly disguise herself as Poppy…or evil Poppy as she is being called.  COOL!!!  Second surprise of the collection was the addition of two spy agent friends Penelope Chase (Collette face mold) and Kimiko Gunn(Ayumi face mold).  This is brilliant in my opinion.  It is a great way to bring back some favorite collector face molds in new and fresh ways.  The designers at I.T. never fail to impress me with their creativity in this.  Nice work David!

Wow!!  Poppy Parker in a cat suit with a gun holster.  Guess she is all grown up now.  I love the look of this one and I really like the black gloved hands she comes with.  Will most definitely be using those on other Poppy’s as well.  I adore my 60’s  Poppy “The Happpening” from last year so I am liking this cinnamon haired version.  Boots should have been just a touch taller…IMO.

A spy in gold lamé!  She is not a low profile spy.  Gold lamé has never been my thing but it screams 60’s .  I love that David Buttry paired it with this mint green.  Goldfinger has got nothing on this girl….if you want gold…it’s here.

I was on the fence about getting this Loni version because I adore the streak in her hair but then I.T. threw in the quick switch silver haired Poppy head ….Game Over…I’m buying.  Brilliant idea to try out the quick switch head model with this collection.  We needed an evil Poppy to go with this theme and it’s a perfect way to do it.  This is also a very satisfying way to honor Poppy’s 5th anniversary for collectors.  Thank you David and Integrity Toys!

Does this guy come off as looking like a ferret to you?  He does to me.  I guess it is appropriate for an evil spy.  I see this one and all I can hear in my head is the sprocket theme from SNL and the German accented phrase “ Would you like to pet my monkey?”  He is very cool and I love the Euro chic black leather jacket.  I can’t get past the ferret face though.

Does she carry the gun in her handbag?  Will it fit?  These are the insane questions that keep me up at night LOL!  Perhaps she can hide it under the shoulder bow.  Okay, okay…I digress.  I love the soft updo with this one.  The pink gown with black stitching and beading is beautifully feminine.  The jewelry is fabulous as well.  I am not feeling the “Mayhem” but I can definitely see this one going to the casino in search of the ferret faced Lex.

Arm candy indeed!!!  This one is worth it for the jacket alone.  I mean come on…the portrait just oooozes the phrase “Bond….James Bond”.  Don’t they make the perfect couple?!  He needed to have secret spy documents in the briefcase or at least a grenade or something right.  Does the watch cut through a door?  Probably. 

There was also some information and a picture released about a Poppy Parker shoe pack coming in August/September.  It was listed as another IT direct release which most likely means….lottery.  Picture is available to WClub members on the Vimeo release of the Webinar.  Members should have received info with instructions on how to access it. 

This was a really fun collection.  I am not a big fan of the 60’s fashions but I found myself ordering quite a few of these because they were just so dang fun and cute.  Excellent work David and I.T. 

Information on the other two lines, Jem and Fashion Teen Poppy coming up later today.


Integrity Toys Reveals FR/FR2 for 2014

This past Saturday morning, WClub members were treated to the release of information on 4 of Integrity Toy’s product lines.  I will be sending out 4 different blog posts to give information on these lines.  If you are interested in any of these items, you should contact an Integrity Toys Dealer ASAP to secure your selection.  Many of these items are already selling out  as WClub members were allowed to order early.

First reveal up is the 2014 FR line.  This years “Safari” inspired collection was a collaboration between designers Vaughn Sawyer and Jason Wu.  This years collection focuses on the 8 core characters going forward with the new FR/FR2 concept. I would call it “Safari Chic” with some especially fine detailed accessories.  It is a strong and fairly cohesive collection. I adore the color palette used in everything.  The facial screenings are strong and sophisticated.  The accessories are amazingly detailed (check out all the patterns and stitching on the purses alone).

I adore the boots in this outfit and that bag!  I was kind of bummed I did not pick up the gorgeous Natalia at convention last year…now I get to make up for it.  One critique though…could we please see some other kind of hairstyle on poor Natalia.  The girll has had the same hairstyle for the last couple of  releases.

Holy accessories batman!  You had me at the shoes…at the shoes.  The bag is a miniature copy of the Jason Wu “Jordan” bag.  I love the soft neutral colors of this one.  I also love the new facial screenings in this collection…most evident in this Kyori.  Again, this is all about the details…and there were plenty to admire in this entire collection.  I love the cross lacing on the skirt.

I.T. also announced and showed a photograph of the an IT Direct shoe pack coming out in the fall.  IT direct means lottery people.  There were four pair of fantastic shoes shown in this pack but no pictures were released outside of the video.  I.T. has asked that we not duplicate any portion of the webinar so I can’t share a photo here.  If you are WClub member, you can view the Webinar in it’s entirety on Vimeo.  Just look in your email for a message from the Wclub for the address and password.

I am not feeling the dress.  It’s different but it feels kind of clumpy on her.  Also, I am a lover of updo’s…you all know this…but I am feeling a little “updo fatigue” with this one.  Her face is beautiful and I love the raven hair.  I am not sold on the lip color yet but I think it is workable.  I really like the jewelry.  Has anyone “easily” gotten that hair comb thingy to work yet?  If so share how you did it.  Enquiring minds would love to know.   I am still going to order but I think she will be redressed fairly quickly.

WClub members have until Monday,April 14th at noon EST to order.


Unexcused Absence…

I have been tardy from the blog and I admit it.  There are good reasons for it , I promise.  For the past three weeks, I have been busy prototyping some items that I am hoping to sell at Barbie convention and through the blog (Etsy shop still being set up) as well.   While I can’t show many of the items yet, they are all in stages of doneness in my laundry room…I offer up some sneak peeks at the end of this post.  In the meantime, I decided to put Miss Poppy in the window for a photoshoot inspired by the beautiful spring green color that is popping up(LOL! pun intended) all around the Pacific Northwest right now.  Spring has sprung in the garden…and in the studio as well.

You’ve Got a Friend

I have a friend who is going through a hard time right now.  I always say that one of if not the most amazing things about the collecting community is its strength and ability to support its members.  This friend is a doll collector and in the midst of the gauntlet she is walking right now, she still thought of others and helped out a few collector friends this week.  Her grace and strength humbles me.  My friend…this one is for you.

Time for a Spring Fling…

A Wonderful Evening

Evening in Montreal Victoire has arrived and she is a stunner!  I knew I was going to love this lady by her promo shots.  The actual doll does not disappoint.  I shared some quick shots of this lady on my Flickr account but managed to take some better shots yesterday in the sunshine.

I adore this magnetic pin!  It makes it sooo much easier to place AND no chance that it will leave a hole in delicate fabric.  Smart choice Integrity!


The Hollywood Issue

I am a subscriber to Vanity Fair.  Every year, before the Oscar’s, they have an issue called “The Hollywood Issue”.   I am always impressed with the cover photography of these issues and never fail to feel inspired after viewing it.  Last year, I was inspired to do my own cover and this is what I ended up with.

This year, I was inspired to try another one and Integrity Toys’ newly revamped Fashion Royalty products were my muses.
