2016 Fashion Royalty Collection–A Delicate Bloom

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc.

Better late than never right?!  Some collectors were beginning to wonder if we were going to get a new release or not.  Granted, the reveal is a bit later than we have had in years past.  One thing I was not remembering, however, was the fact that the WClub 2016 did not start until February of this year.  Some have pointed out that this reveal halfway into the “club” year is about right.  Time and collector sales numbers will finish the thoughts and stories on that one.  In my opinion, revealing this collection 6 months into the club year is a bit late.  That fact does not stop me from appreciating the product nor making purchases so there you go.  If I am not totally satisfied with the delay in the reveal, I am satisfied with the delivery time on these babies.  They are all available within the next couple of months so no long wait times.  On the downside…They are all coming DUE FOR PAYMENT in the next couple of months.  This is not good for the wallet. 

Note:  “Eye Decals”  I have marked which of these dolls are using the new eye decal application method under doll tech specs for those who are interested.  For me, this new method is ok for now.  Some collectors are very averse to this technique being used and I wanted to make sure everyone had the information before they purchase.  For me, I am willing to give this technique a chance.  I also respect people’s consumer choice and for many this is important information to have before they purchase.

For those readers who are not WClub members, you can find most of these dolls on Integrity Toys dealers sites.  Be aware, WClub members had this information days ago so if you want any of these, contact dealers ASAP.  Some may already be sold out.

Important note from Integrity Toys:  The dolls pictured in this release are prototypes. Final fabrics, colors and textures may vary slightly.  Images of dolls used in this post are property of Integrity Toys, Inc. and under their copyright.

Love the lace overlay and added beading to the lace!  I am also really loving the chunky jewelry design.    All in all a very elegant look.  For some reason, this Natalia left me without a clear “ must have” which is weird.  I totally go for the elegant and refined and this dress has it.  The doll just left me “meh” though and not sure if it was the simplistic hairstyle ( more on that later) or the pale skin tone on a character that I prefer as sultry Latino.  Love the jewelry though so may have to find that in the secondary market.  As I write this I also realize that some of my lack of excitement over this one may be the use of black.  I feel like IT overdosed on it’s use of black last year and here it is again…albeit as secondary colors but still…it’s black!

YAASSSSSSSS!  Now we are talkin’.  I saw this caramel tressed Kyori and felt the wallet open ( a chorus of angels may have struck a chord as well).  I love the soft pastel color pallet!!  Not a whiff of black here.  I love the embroidered leather ( ok not real leather but still) and the edgy refinement of it.  It feels forward and still elegant.  This feels like Jason influence to me and I like it.  Also, whoever is heading up the jewelry and accessory department at IT…HATS OFF!!  Here we have another new design in earrings and its fabulous!  Love the grey purse and sunglasses.  The lavender shoes are EVERYTHING!  Me likes.  I am hoping Dania’s grey gloved hands of last year’s club doll will match this one.

Ok…so I have to admit my first thought on this one came straight from the “I’m a Mom of a 16 year old girl” and it said “ That skirt does not satisfy the fingertip rule”.  Then I started paying attention to the details and felt better.  First I looked at the doll.  Gorgeous Dasha with beautiful smoky eyes pale blond hair.  Stunning.  The jacket is really quite detailed so I told the “mom” in me to sit down and reflect.  I think this one will be amazing redressed and I have plans for that jacket ( maybe not with the skirt Winking smile)

This one will be through IT Direct not dealers people.  What did I notice about this doll first?  The price!!  Alain explained that this was done as tribute to the “basic doll” that IT has done in years past.  I don’t know that there is anything really “basic” about this beauty.  The price alone certainly has many interested.  One pet peeve however…and this is the photographer in me but…the right eye on this lady is off ( left eye pupil is forward looking, right eye it is off to side).  I am expectant and hopeful that in production this item is fixed. WClubbers, look for emails on how to acquire this one sometime in October.

A redheaded Luchia?!!!  I’m in!!  And she has cream skin tone.  Me likes!  The dress is very interesting.  Feeling a little Valentino here but I have not researched so have no idea how close I am on that one.  The yellow purse is certainly a pop of color in this one but I may switch that out.  Also, while I love the industrial jewelry in this collection, I would go for something softer with this gown.  Grey pearls maybe?  Don’t know but will have fun trying things out.

Yes, yes…this gown is almost in retinal searage territory.  My first question was…”Is it yellow or green yellow?”  I am thinking it is more in the yellow category but photographs can be deceiving.  Either way, I find myself admiring this one which surprises me because I am NOT a yellow fan.  I ADORE the embroidery on this one and the fact that it is an homage to the house of Oscar de la Renta endears this one to me.  I am also loving the auburn haired Eugenia with the pink/coral  lips.

First of all…giftset with Elyse…no brainer for me. 1) Love, love, love the soft palette on this facial screening. I believe Jessy Ayala is in charge of all facial screenings now so..Jessy..LOVE!  2) How adorable is this lingerie set?!!…the bows…the bows..you had me at the bows 3) A Marchesa inspired gown!! 4) Another nod to the house of Oscar de la Renta.  Sign me up, I’m in.  I am not a huge fan of the high/low skirt with a suit but it’s not a deal breaker for me.  If they had just had a pencil skirt in the same fabric as the jacket, this set would have been close to perfect for me.  This was the first one in my shopping cart people…the very first.

But wait…there is more!  There is always more with Integrity Toys.  More, as in…event doll!

THUD!  Holy Cow collectors!  I don’t think my fingers hesitated one single moment before hitting the “BUY” button on this one..and from what I am seeing from other WClubbers…they feel the same way.  This one may be up there as one of the largest edition sizes in the history of the WClub.  Edition size will be driven by WClub members who order and I know many are ordering multiples of this one. ( one per membership and many members have multiple memberships).  Where do I start?!  The dress…oh my word the dress!  Pale peachy pink with beaded lace overlay.  Ahhhhhh!!! –another chorus of angels is singing here.  That adorable pink bow clutch!  I am even liking the industrial necklace with this gown.  I and many other WClubbers will be looking forward to the Winter ‘16’ delivery of this one.  Please oh please let it be before Christmas!!! ( not likely but a girl can dream).

One final note that needs to be made about this collection is the very paleness of it.  While I love that they gave us colors other than black in this collection ( yes, they really do listen to their collectors), they did not have any skin tone diversity in this collection.  The yellow gown alone would have been stunning on an Adele.  It left many collectors asking “where is the diversity?”  A very valid question and one I hope Integrity addresses.

Ooh La La Indeed!!

The WClub Poppy Parker Exclusive arrived just after I returned from Barbiecon a few weeks ago.  As with most conventions, I have spent the last couple of weeks going through my acquired treasures and getting over “The convention cold”.  When you put around 1,000 people together in a ballroom for multiple events, and these same people get on average 4-5 hours of sleep a night…there is bound to be illness.  So… now I am on the mend, I managed to snap some images of this new Poppy Parker and get them ready for the blog.

You have to love these giftsets and check out the dual stand!!  I have not seen that before.    I am completely digging the case with this one too.  Very chic and elegant.  I adore the sleek platinum blond ponytails and red, red lips.  I am also a big fan of the cream skin tone and it looks like Agnes has it for this set.  Hope to see these girls sometime before the end of the year.  Integrity Toys thanked Jason and Vaughn for this offering in their release email .  This collector thanks them too!

And…because we have sisters for the giftset…just had to add this, sorry, couldn’t help myself.

 

Get ready folks…Poppy Parker “right to buy” lotteries will be right around the corner!

Procrastination and … a Poppy Parker

So, I may not be the queen of procrastination but I believe I would be voted onto the court of princesses of procrastination.  I kind of like the sound of that…”Princess of Procrastination”.  Anywhoo, I am supposed to be finishing up my presentation for this years NBDCC.  I am supposed to be putting the finishing touches on it, wrapping it up and putting it to bed so I can start getting packed for the flight I am taking in a little over 36 hours from now.  Am I doing any of that?  Noooooooo.  Instead, today I received a couple new Poppy Parker’s and I am playing instead.  Guess this means I am finishing up the presentation on the airplane.

Love the lavender eyes!!  Everything about this set that was promised…was delivered.  She is adorable and the little poodle is to die for.  Well done David!!  I will have to come up with a suitable Paris themed set when I get back from convention.

Now…back to the presentation.  If you are attending the NBDCC and are interested in learning more about the photography that I do here on the blog, I will be presenting on Thursday, July 28th at 5 pm in one of the Riverfront rooms at the Hyatt Jacksonville.  The time had to be changed from original schedule due to scheduling conflicts.

Elyse Likes A Party

Or at least she likes a party in Paris…but then who wouldn’t.  I received this beautiful J’adore la Fête Elyse right before leaving for vacation and while I don’t advocate working while you go on vacation, I do have to say that my office view has improved with travel…this is what I am looking at while I write this post.

She is a beauty!  I love the dark locks and flame red lips on her.  The jewelry is really stepped up and the presentation of this giftset in the red suitcase appeals to this collector in a big way.  It’s just plain classy.  I can’t wait to photograph this Elyse in the suit.

Chinoiserie

Ok…so many of you readers realize I am a little obsessed with my new Jon Copeland-Childers Poppy Parker repaint right?  Another thing I was recently obsessed with was this pink chinoiserie backdrop I did.  The apple green eyes of this lovely model inspired this setting and the chance to use this amazing backdrop.  Hope you enjoy!

A New Muse

Last week, Integrity Toys and David Buttry gave us an amazing Poppy Collection.  In the same week I received, from SeloJSpa, my latest repaint from Jon Copeland-Childers.  The second I opened this one up, I knew I was going to be obsessed for a while.  Jon, I don’t know how you do it, but you continue to surprise, delight and amazing me.  Since David Buttry left me dreaming of Poppy Parker in Paris, I simply couldn’t wait to take her there.

Agnes at the Palazzo

For those of you following my Instagram, you have seen a little taste of this shoot.  If you don’t follow, here is a little backstory.  It all started with this amazing dress which I found on Etsy by the talented duo AquatalisBoutique .  You may have seen some of their work over on Rogier’s Blog this week.  It took a while for this gown to get to me because the first one was lost in the vast quagmire of  postal services between Vietnam and my home.  Aquatalis was great about it and after we waited a reasonable time without the dress showing up, they promptly made and mailed another one.  Excellent customer service and kept me informed the whole time.  When I saw this gown I immediately thought of Dolce & Gabbana and their 2012 and 2013 collections.  Such vibrant color and opulence. I needed an appropriate backdrop.  Nothing I had was doing it for me.  So….time for a new one and I went to the Dutch still life masters to find inspiration.  I had seen a wall covering recently that I was obsessed with and wanted to do something similar…this set was what came from all that brainstorming.

Poppy Goes to Paris!!

Poppy Goes to Paris

And I wish I was going with her!  When David Buttry announced this theme for Poppy Parker last year at convention, I thought I would faint of pure happiness.  Just the thought of this theme and I was dreaming of all kinds of fabulous Poppy Parker Parisian style.  What David Buttry and Integrity Toys gave collectors yesterday were those dreams realized and a confection in pink that has this collector claiming she has seen nirvana…and her name is “Miss Amour”.  You will see what I mean.   The following dolls will be available at Integrity Toys Dealers.  If you are at all interested, you should contact IT dealers NOW.  WClub members had 24 hours ahead of you to order.  Some of these babies are already sold out.

What’s the first thing a girl is going to do in Paris?  SHOP!  And you won’t just throw on a pair of jeans to go shopping in Paris…you need to do it in style.  This black, yellow and white suit with hat and gloves ensures that Miss Poppy will indeed be shopping in style.  The little bag ( reminiscent of an Hérmes Kelly bag) adds that fabulous finishing touch.  I love the french twist hairstyle on her too.  I am also noticing that there will be plenty of mix and match opportunities within this collection and the doll offered up as the Poppy Parker club doll.  Thank you for that David!

Translated..”This is so good”.  Indeed she is!  Poppy is ready for a night on the town in this adorable little polka dot confection.  I already have her pictured at a little table at Laduree for a future photo shoot.  If I am already thinking about the photos I am going to take of a doll…she is already in my shopping cart…no question.

The color palette of this collection definitely points to the fact that Poppy is traveling to Paris in the springtime.  David Buttry confirmed this in a webcast about the collection.  I adore this lavender on the strawberry blonde tresses of this Poppy.  I also love the new updated facial screening on this one.  It looks like we are getting some new and more sophisticated jewelry for Miss Poppy.  NICE!  I also love that the “Paris in Springtime” outfit will go nicely with the facial screening of this doll and vica versa. 

This collection is an out of the park home run in my opinion.  This is exactly what I enjoy collecting.  I was happy with the base collection but the upcoming lottery offerings are what have me and many other Poppy Parker collectors salivating.

Oh my word!!  She comes with a teddy bear and diary….too cute!!  Why oh why does she have to be a lottery doll?!!!  Here is hoping that the lottery Gods are kind to me.  Looks like the lottery tickets will be sold sometime in late summer.  The verbiage says IT direct so not just WClub offering on this one.  That makes the low 700 edition size even more alarming.  Many more fish in the pond to vie for the right to purchase this beauty.  Good luck to all!

And…finally…the pièce de résistance so to speak of this collection in my opinion….

If David Buttry came up to me and said “Hey Rebecca…if I could design the perfect Poppy for you, what would she look like?”,  my response would be this doll.  1) She is pink 2) She has pink jewelry 3) she has an updo 4) She has soft facial screening 4) She is wearing a high couture ball gown ( I feel Dior here) and 5) She comes with an adorable mini perfume bottle.  I am just going to say it right now…if I don’t get the chance to purchase this one…there will be a sulk fest like no other before it then an immediate grouping of funds to purchase this baby on the secondary market.  This one is a must have for me.  It looks like this is another IT direct so not just WClub members going after this one.  Good Luck to everyone and I may see you in the mud pit of secondary market purchasing after on this one.  I need to go work out now.

Next blog post up in 30 minutes talking about the debut doll from The Industry doll collection.
