Barbie for big girls.

ILHYLM Poppy will be on her way here soon!

I was not one of the lucky ones to win her in the W Club lottery and was one of the ones who tried and failed to purchase one of the 50 or so sets available through  Dolls Magazine.  Yes….I survived that day which has become known as “Poppygate”.  For those of you who don’t know the story, let it suffice to say that there was a huge demand and very little supply…never makes for a good ending.  With great anticipation, the offering started…with great dissappointment and massive system failure due to overwhelming demand…the offering ended.  Those who were quick enough to email Dolls Magazine were rewarded with the highly sought after sets.  I am thrilled to see that Poppy Parker has such a fan base.  That means that she will be around a while and David Butry, the Integrity designer responsible for her, will  hopefully be afforded the opportunity to continue designing this adorable character.  I have loved this girl since her first iteration and I continue to love the designs coming out.

All that being said, I had given up hope that I would be able to find this very sought after set for an affordable price.   Through the help of another collector, I was able to find one today and am so excited to photograph her!  She should be arriving in a couple of weeks.

  1. Glad you managed to get a set, Rebecca. I too was unlucky in the lottery, but have a good doll friend in Australia who did win (and who is not a Poppy fan – how can that be!!) and so we traded.

    I really look forward to your photos which are always amazing. Can you tell me what kind of camera you use – it doesn’t say so on Flickr and I’d be interested.

    thank you 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment Barbara! Congrats on getting a Poppy for yourself. I agree with you…How can anyone not be a Poppy fan? But then their loss is your gain so I guess that makes it okay. I am glad you like my photos and you are right that I don’t have any technical info available on Flickr. We photographers tend to be a secretive crowd about our camera’s, shutter speeds and aperature data…. heehee. I am currently using a Canon 40D.
