Imogene Gets a Boater Ensemble

It was no surprise that when Integrity Toys released their Funny Face line of dolls, I was all over them.  My particular favorite was “Think Pink!”.   I also have a particular fondness for suits so it was time to put these two favorites together for a photo shoot.   Also, as Imogene dons her “boater ensemble” and takes some time to perhaps jet off to some glamorous destination, Inside The Fashion Doll Studio will be posting a little less for a bit as this blogger/photographer takes some time to do a few other things.    Doll posts should continue every Friday but don’t expect much more than that.

Model:  Funny Face “Think Pink!” Imogene

Suit, hat and shoes:  Boater Ensemble Barbie® Doll

Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi

Yes!!  Finally another installment of Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi.  I have been remiss on this for a while and it was well past time to reinstitute this favorite blog segment.  James recently sent me two outfits so beautiful, I had to share.  Normally, I pull out the silkies for these but felt it was Integrity Toys turn to get some love.

The Blogging Blues

We all have them.  Those times when we just can’t seem to summon the energy to get things done.  I find myself in this state of ennui from time to time.tumblr_mks8lg6IkU1s0p3y2o1_500

 

That is where I feel I have been for the last week. Yesterday, however, the sun came out and I decided to do some redressing and get with the program.  I grabbed my trusty point and shoot and had some fun with the sunshine.  Hope you like Smile

2012 ITFDS Favorites

At the end of each year, a flurry of photos floods Flickr and doll boards with groupings of collectors favorite dolls for the year.  I always have these grand ideas of doing a group photo too and never seem to get around to it .  This year, I had a flash of  inspiration and decided I was going to MAKE the time to do it…so.. here it is.  I was inspired by this years Vanity Fair Hollywood Edition.

In no particular order, my favorite dolls for 2012 are

1) Glam Addict Giselle

2) Gala Gown Silkstone Barbie

3) Fame by Frame Imogen

4) Lilac Frost Poppy Parker

5) High Profile Eugenia

Imogen–Fame by Frame

Or…Frame by Frame as I called her initially and had to be corrected.  Frame by Frame would have been the perfect title for this post as I decided to do some redressing and additional photo shoots for the 2012 Fashion Royalty Convention doll Imogen.    I have to completely own up and say when I opened the box at the last nights convention dinner, I was underwhelmed.    The outfits were very modern ( not my general thing) and two out of the three outfits were coral red.  It was all a little one note for me.  I would have preferred a gown or even a swimsuit but not two dresses in the same color.  The doll just wasn’t doing anything for me in the box.  When I flew back home from convention a few weeks ago, this lady was  firmly on my “to sell” pile.  Then, I started seeing photos on flickr that had me rethinking ( yes Shuga…I mean you!).  I decided to debox and play.  I found that my first impression was…WRONG.  I am adoring this one and have endeavored to glam her up a bit for my shots.

Okay..so who here bought this outfit below and could never find a doll that looked good in it??  {{Rebecca raises her hand emphatically}}.  I adore this outfit but could never find anyone who looked good in it…until now.  Apparently the trick is to find a model with a tan!!

 And because I had to find the right evening look for this lady….I finally found someone who could wear the “Anemone” Christian Louboutin gown.  The oompaloompa doll it came on had to go.  Sorry folks.  I don’t mean to be disrespectful and if you have that doll and adore her…my apologies…but..to me she just looked like a bad spray tanning accident.  Ms. Imogen however, looked fabulous in it!!
