This is all in one humongous giftset!

How do many collectors feel about this???

Take my money

Take my money 2

Yep…that is me…the lady in red above and to be honest I would be slamming it down on the counter too with a definitive “YASSSSS”.  Vanessa might not be my favorite face mold but THIS Vanessa for me is “all that and a bag of chips”.  Many are lamenting the increased price tag and I get that.  She is more expensive, true.  She also comes with three separate and amazing looks and …LUGGAGE!!  I guess my threshold for being willing to pay more is, luggage.  I don’t think I’m alone

Preorder for this lovely is open to WClub members UNTIL JANUARY 19TH, 2018 AT NOON EASTERN TIME!

Jason Wu 10th Anniversary Dolls

Jason Wu is releasing a commemorative collection of 10th anniversary dolls to showcase some of his favorite designs from the last ten years of his career.  Today Bergdorf Goodman released a very limited edition set of dolls to the expectant arms of many willing and waiting collectors.   A few lucky collectors were able to obtain them…many others did not.  The funny part …or perhaps not so funny…is that we really don’t know who will end up with these dolls and who will not.  Before I go any further, lets share images of what people were willing to get up at the crack of dawn to try to purchase.

Let me set the stage.  If you are a WClub member, you received a “heads-up” that these dolls would be made available online only at Bergdorf Goodman on November 17th at approximately 9:00AM EST.  This is one of those “PERKS” I talk about getting with a WClub membership that basically pays for the membership alone.  Just sayin’…on to the scene.

Let’s be honest here people…for those who collect and love the hunt, this was catnip.  With that information tucked away, many intrepid collectors from all over the world attempted to attain these allusive collectibles.  When I say allusive…I mean it.  Edition size is 200.  That is SMALL.  That makes these babies basically a holy grail in the fashion doll collecting community.  It was a safe bet to say that there would be high demand and low supply.  Basically a blue light Kmart special kind of event. 

So, we had the approximate time and the place and most of us assumed that searching the website for “Jason Wu” or “Jason Wu doll” would be enough to find these beauties once they were released on the site.  Some of us started early…as in predawn on the 17th.  The search, it turns out was not as simple as typing in the logical “Jason Wu” oh no…it was to be more complicated than that.  And here is the interesting thing I found today.  It was the community and the loyal and helpful members of that community that essentially helped fellow collectors find the elusive links or gateways that allowed many to attempt to purchase these dolls.  Thanks to one member in particular in the WClub, many of us were able to use a shared link and attempt to purchase these dolls.  I will say outright here and now that many of us owe Blaiseworld on the WClub a big martini and undying thanks for directing us to the dolls.  When many were expressing difficulty in finding the dolls after the designated time had arrived, Blaisworld shared the link that allowed us to get these in our carts and for all intensive purposes, purchase. 

Why am I being so cagy about “purchase”?  Excellent question.  Many of us were able to put these babies in our cart and go through the regular checkout step.  Many of us received the hallowed “confirmation” email.  And then…many received the dreaded “cancellation” email.  So many received cancellations that it has left everyone feeling like we don’t really know if we will get these dolls or not.  There does not seem to be a rhyme or reason to the cancellations and there will be approximately a week delay to find out if these things will ship ( apparently the container ship with product has not arrived at BG yet).  Most of us wait in anticipation hell…afraid of the pings of those incoming emails …afraid they will be cancellation emails.  I am seriously developing a nervous tick with these pings LOL!  As of this point, I am in anticipation of these dolls but I don’t fully expect them.  Jason Wu shared on his Instagram that these dolls sold out in 1 hour so I am hopeful if I made purchase within that 1 hour that I will receive them.  I don’t really know for sure though until I get the first step to the holy grail…the “shipping notice”. 

I have said it before and I will say it again, Elyse and Eden/Lilith are my favorite face molds.  I am interested in anything with these face molds.  Added to that, the idea of having a miniature Jason Wu creation is flippin’ cool.  I wish the edition size were such that those who wanted one could obtain one.  In the absence of that, I have to say it was an an exhilarating yet maddening experience today as I ran into roadblocks.  In the end, the roadblock was moved aside by a person I did not know personally but whom helped many collectors find their way to purchase.  That is the true meaning of this day to me.  This person didn’t have to help, but they did…and it helped many.  Wow.  Even if I don’t end up getting these dolls, I am humbled by the willingness of a few to help their fellow collectors.  They didn’t hoard the information to themselves or hand it out to a select few…they gave it to the community.  I find this over and over within this collecting community…a willingness to help eachother.  Yes, yes, there are a few actors that are in it primarily for the profit and the gain but I would have to say, for the most part, the community wants to help….and in a world that is already pretty darn difficult right now…that made me smile.

Hoping to get these dolls but smiling in the midst of this uncertainty,

Rebecca


Poetic Beauty Enters the Studio

Things have been crazy busy at ITFDS since July.  Since the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention, I have been in production mode for the Integrity Toys convention and that left very little time for anything else…taking photos or blogging.  I need to work out a better schedule…. obviously! 

In the craziness that was August through July, there were some very high points for my collection.  One such moment was when I won the opportunity to purchase the Poetic Beauty Lilith and Eden gift set. 

©2017 Integrity Toys Inc. - Poetic Beauty Eden

©2017 Integrity Toys Inc.- Poetic Beauty Lilith

They are inspired, I believe, by the 2016 Pre fall Louis Vuitton collection..feel free to check out the photos in my original post about these dolls.  Eden/Lilith is one of my all time favorite face molds and the fact that this gift set was offered in this lottery made me both excited and filled with anxiety.  This was a lottery I REALLY wanted to win.  I consider myself very lucky to have succeeded in this and was able to purchase.

I adore the facial screening on these dolls and the clothing was edgy, current and perfect for these young sister characters.  The real highlight, however, in this set were the accessories.

It wasn’t the fact that you got 2 Louis Vuitton inspired purses but THE SHOES and those tasseled earrings.  The execution and attention to detail on these accessories also deserves special comment.  Really well done people…exceptional. 

And…since the name of this gift set was Poetic Beauty…I had to  pull out some Lord Byron….had to do it.

This set is one of IT’s best in my humble opinion.  I adore every aspect of it so I will let Lord Byron finish this post with,

“And all that’s best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes; “

Alta Moda for All Collectors!

Integrity Toys just announced another goodie for collectors!  As I have explained in previous blog posts, for the past couple of Integrity Toys conventions the advanced design competition winner gets to have their design produced by IT.  It’s a really nice perk and what an incentive for the incredibly talented pool of IT collectors.  This past year the advanced design competition was won by Salvador Lopez Arriaga.

Here are some images I took of his design entry at the convention:

You have to give Integrity Toys an A+ for staying true to the original design.  They faithfully reproduced it down to the doll Mr. Arriaga used!   Feel free to follow Salvador on his Instagram account as he continues to share his design projects.  I have followed him for over a year now and he never fails to inspire and amaze. 

OK…so what do you need to know to order this doll?  1) If you are WClub member, use the link in the email that was sent to you by noon ET September 19, 2017 . 2) If you are not a WClub member, I am assuming this lovely will be available in their shop at The Integrity Toys website after September 19th.  At the time of this posting, they have not given specific information other than it will be available to the general public.  That could mean IT direct or through their dealers.  I will post more information when I have it.

Coquettish in the Sunshine

The first release from Integrity Toy’s 2017 Fashion Royalty La Femme collection has entered The Fashion Doll Studio!  I really didn’t think I was going to be able to do any shots in the natural sunshine today as we have smoky haze( welcome to the Pacific Northwest and all of it’s summer forest fires) but it has turned the light this really cool pinkish red so I thought      “ why not!”  Keep in mind that these shots are done through a pinkish red filter which gives Jordan’s skin a rosier hue than normal.

Love this mocha skin tone and the honey blond tresses on this lady.  One of the softest Jordan’s I have seen in a while.  The clothing is on trend and the quality is good.  the fabric is nice and supple as well as the pants.  The bustier has a nice leather feel and fits well.  The real stars of this show are the accessories though.

Wow right?!!  I realize ( and totally relate to) that some are completely turned off by the fact that the shorts look was sported by Kendell Jenner on a red carpet event but lets not forget…the original look was designed by Alexandre Vauthier.

How adorable is that little butterfly headband?!!  And I love the blue and white print with the facial screening of this doll.  Soft and elegant.  I don’t know who the design inspiration was for the gown but the feeling for me is that soft mystical feel of the recent Dior couture shows by Maria Grazia Chiuri ,formally of Valentino.  I love the whimsy coupled with edginess of this giftset.  It’s a full meal deal!  This addition to the Nu.Face line is also part of the “Heirloom” collection so the backstory reveals that the little butterfly crown has been passed down through generations in Erin’s family.  Sweet story.  I am really enjoying the fun Jessy appears to be having with this line.

If you are a W Club member, you have until noon EST 9/8/2017 to order this one.  Check for the links in your email.  If you are not a member, check the secondary markets after this beauty is released ( not until 2018).

Champagne anyone?

Hello all!!  It seems like a year since my last blog post and in reality…it has been almost 2 months!  Yikes.  First and foremost, I need to send out a belated and public “Thank You!!” to my dear friend and fellow blogger Rogier from Dutch Fashion Doll World for taking over my blog and doing a wonderful job reporting for me while I was at the National Barbie Doll Collector Convention in Houston.  I hope you all enjoyed the posts and images. 

A little bit of an explanation for my absence.  In the months preceding NBDCC, I am typically hyper busy producing miniatures to sell in the convention sales room.  This year, I started extra early and produced about twice the amount I normally do thinking I would have a bunch left over afterwards so that I would have plenty to sell at Integrity Toys convention.  The good part…I sold a LOT more than I expected to at Barbiecon…The bad part…I have had to turn around and start producing again for Integrity Toys.  This has meant little to no time for blogging or photography.  Sorry folks.  Best laid plans and all that went out the window…but it was for a good reason.  I am more pleased than I can say that my minis appeal to you guys.  Thank you for your support.  If I ever have a spare week free..I will set up my etsy site to sell to all.  So far…not happening.  Perhaps after IT convention.  Fingers crossed.

Today, being a day of rest, I chose to have some fun with my camera and my relatively new “First Taste of Champagne” Poppy Parker came to mind.  Hope you enjoy!

Agnes is Merveilleuse!!

I don’t think you need a translator to realize that this says Agnes is marvelous.  For quite a while now, it has been an Integrity Toy’s WClub custom to offer up an “event doll” made available to members when they hold a webinar.  It’s a nice little perk for members and it’s always in addition to the club dolls offered up as part of the WClub membership.  You get the right to purchase this doll just for being a WClub member.  Many collectors take advantage of this deal.  The doll offered up for this years 2017 Nu.Face and Fashion Royalty collections was very special.  Designed by Jessy Ayala again and according to his explanation was inspired by one of his favorite designers.

2017 Fashion Royalty Collection Revealed!!

©2017 Integrity Toys Inc. Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

Yep…you see it in the logo above, this years collection is about the woman.    As an added treat for collectors, Integrity Toys gave Jessy Ayala the drivers seat in this years FR collection.  The theme seems to have been set with the initial WClub offering earlier this year of Riviera Drama Agnes.  While Jessy may be taking the theme of bold colors and super chic from the Riviera, there are some definite detours.   He has taken the theme and used it to celebrate femininity…in it’s romantic iterations as well as it’s strength.  He ends with the power suit to end all power suits.  Let’s dive into the collection shall we?

Well bring on La Dolce Vita!  I am getting a very strong Dolce and Gabbana vibe with this one.  A perfect ensemble for relaxing on the Riviera.  Sadly we don’t have an image of the back of this blouse but it looks to be amazing too.    Adore the pink head scarf here.  Perfect touch with the dark hair.  She needed a glamorous pair of sunglasses to complete this look.  The facial screening is reminiscent of Going Public Eugenia and me loves!!  This is cool classic elegance.  Time for a chilled glass of prosecco on the patio overlooking the Mediterranean.

Ohhhh so chic!  I love that Jessy stuck with the rich Riviera colors here.  And come one…Jordan in these honey tresses?!!…YUM!  Jessy commented that he kept the facial screening soft and fresh on this one.  I love that he paired these emerald sandals with the softer blue, turqoise and green tones.  Adore the peach jewelry.  And…Jordan has a last name now too!

I love the doll on this one…let me just put that out there.  Beautiful auburn hair on cream skin tone with soft facial screening and a Vanessa 3.0 sculpt.  What is not to love about that.  The outfit…well..it’s not my favorite..and not really getting a Riviera vibe either.  I adore the accessories.  The shirt with the bow detailing…love.  I am not sure I would pair it with the black lace skirt and I for sure would not throw an animal print wrap over the top of it.  This outfit was the weakest showing IMO of the entire line.  I like the components, just not together.  The sweatheart topstitch on the shirt gives it almost a western feel so not sure where that fits into this high glamour Riviera feel Jessy has going.

Holy flippin’ Zorro people!!  I believe I fainted when I saw this one…then recovered quickly and put this doll as #1 on my buy list.  What do I start with…That color on Adele…brilliant!!  The scarf with the hat…inspired!  The belted suit….sublime!!  The accessories…perfection!!  The facial screening…sultry and strong….LOVE!!  This was IMO the strongest look of this collection.  My only complaint is not sure how this fits in with a Riviera theme.  It’s definitely showcases strong and feminine but not necessarily Riviera chic.  Doesn’t change the fact that I am buying it though

Too much fashion

My poor, poor wallet!!!

But wait folks…there is more!  What collection is worth their salt without a lottery item.  Yes…another lottery.  I admit, kind of feeling the lottery fatigue with this one.

Oh my!!  A tanned Elyse!!  Again I hope the lottery Gods are kind.  There is a high edition size on this one so that’s at least comforting.  Now this lady is definitely on theme for the Riviera.  She just needs a Pucci scarf to tie around the swimsuit.  Love this duel bottom leg concept too.  Makes it very versatile.  Another point that I didn’t make in this or the previous blog post about Nu.Face was the fact that these bodies don’t have the waist joint so there is this very smooth waist on them and it allows to show off the midriff without that pesky joint.  Very nice. 

I am so happy to see the uber talents of Jessy Ayala displayed in not one but two different collections this year.  I feel his strongest showing was definitely in the Nu.Face line but the young man has some serious fashionista styling when it comes to the FR big hitters.  While the cohesiveness might not have been as strong in the FR line as Nu.Face it still packed a punch with some really stellar moments.  This collection’s Adele will be talked about for years and years.  I would also like to give Integrity Toys and it’s design team a big thumbs up for the improved diversity in this line.

So, as I have said before, if you are at all interested in these lovely’s, contact your IT authorized dealer sooner rather than later.
