The Sleeper has Awakened
Ok..I have to admit the title was for all you “Dune” geeks out there LOL! This line may be from the book and movie “Dune” but we have a bit of a sleeper situation going on in the Poppy Parker Bon Bon collection. Her name is Night at the Ballet Poppy Parker and she has turned out WAY better than the promo shots.
Here is what we were expecting…
Not bad but I have to admit…she was my least favorite in the whole lineup and I almost didn’t order her. Boy oh boy am I glad I did because this is what arrived on Saturday. Check out the gorgeous green eyes on this lady!

Couple things to note:
1) The hair on my doll needed a little tweaking after I took the hair net off. It didn’t take too much to put it all back in order.
2) The necklace is just gold, no stones. This seems kind of weird to me as the bracelet has beautiful blue stones in it but there you go. It looks like it should have a few stones in the necklace or it looks like there was space for it but there aren’t any. Don’t know if this is an oversight or just a last minute budget cut but a number of people have commented on FB that they don’t have any stones in their necklaces either so I don’t think it’s just me. The promo shots of the accessories don’t really show the necklace that well so it may have been intended to be just plain gold all the way along. Just wanted to make people aware.
Huge thanks to my dealer Barb at Windy City Dolls for getting these new Poppy’s to me so quickly!! You are the best.
Let the redressing and photographing begin!!!
Heaps better than the promos, the hair looks great. Looks like the same screening as powder puff. But that dress is still awful 😊 I’d love to see her redressed. Think she would look stunning!

Yes, same screening. While the dress isn’t my favorite, I am at least pleased with the quality and cut of it. she is going to be stunning redressed…I agree 😉

You sent me running to a dealer to grab one of these. She reminds me of Elizabeth Montgomery in Bewitched. I can’t get over how much better the production is. She is definitely a doll to the pack because she has such a different look to her.

I had the same feelings about this gal. She wasn’t real impressive, but I like the blondes and went ahead and ordered her. When I opened the box, I was more than thrilled. She’s just gorgeous! I love her! Her shoes are so cute too.
