Poppy Parker Live from the Oscars Red Carpet!

Every time the Oscars roll around, I feel compelled to do some kind of red carpet or Oscar themed shoot.  I have done Barbie getting dressed in her closet.  I’ve done Barbie on her way to presenting the Oscar.  I’ve done Barbie on the red carpet.  I have yet to do any Integrity Toys, Inc products for the Oscar night festivities.  Well…I’m going to fix that right now!  Poppy Parker is going to the Oscars!

The Power of Pink!!

Actually, I wanted to title this blog post “The power of pink, a new frock and a little bit of sunshine” , but it would have been too long.   When you live in the Pacific Northwest and it’s the dead of winter ( which means rain people…lots and lots of rain), if one ray of sunshine peaks out, you are grabbing your camera and saying “What can I take a photo of!!”  Or maybe…that’s just me.   Yes I am seeing someone about my random photo tendencies when in the presence of intermittent sunshine LOL!

So, recently I took ownership of this adorable little dress from Hilda of Bellissima Couture.  To me this dress just makes me happy.  It’s pink yumminess with a hat.  Also, it gave me a chance to use a new model in the studio..Ms. IT Airways Poppy Parker.  She came with a pair of hands with white gloves ( Thank you David!!) so I knew I had to use them in a photo.  I know by reading the WClub boards that a number of people were less than pleased with how the hair came out for their Poppy’s.  Mine was not the best when she arrived but a very thoughtful and gifted group of souls on the WClub talked some of us through what they did to fix their Poppy’s hair.  It worked like a dream on mine.  If you are a WClub member and want to see the tutorial, head over to the WClub forum and look under IT Airways Poppy.  My “thanks” to the contributors!

She is a young Anna Wintour here.  The hat did not come with the dress.  It is a floral scrapbooking embellishment.  The pink pearl necklace is one I made.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I picked up this glorious gown at the last IT convention and have been waiting for the right lady to wear it.  It is a power house of a gown so who better than “Power House Ayumi” to wear it.

I just received the first of three of the 2015 revamped NuFace line that I ordered.  All I can say is she is stunning!  The facial screening is absolutely beautiful in my opinion.

The shoe strings were too short for me to tie into a bow so I ended up knotting them in the back and tucking the ends into the shoes.  Not a bad fix.  It will be a pain to untie and redress though.  The jewelry is simple but sturdy and appropriate given the very clean chic lines of the outfit.  Love the red, red lips and simple and elegant facial screening.  The hair was really good when I deboxed  but I wanted the bangs to lie closer to the head so I did end up pinning the end of the swoop of her bangs so It would lay closer to the head.   Looking forward to redressing this beauty.

tumblr_lkjxss9eTr1qba78m

Oh yes again!!!  My poor, poor wallet is toast but Stefan and I are happy.  How amazing is this Imogen?!  Love the smoky eye and beautiful slightly tan Hungarian skin stone.  It’s so edgy chic!!  Perfect for the newly revamped and emerging Nu.Face line.

It looks like the Nu.Face team is going back to Balmain for inspiration here and can I just say…good call on NOT doing the ruffled pants.  Looks like there may be some Alexander MCQueen going on as well with all the skulls.

And…for this 10th anniversary edition, they are pulling out one often longed for luxury of giftsets  past…a gorgeous case to put it in.  This harkens back to the Haute Luxuries sets of the first years of Fashion Royalty dolls.  Classy and so very much appreciated.

So the whole package comes to you like this…

The gown bears a striking resemblance to a couture Dior worn by Charlise Theron at the 2014 Oscars ( one of my picks  that year for favorite gown of the Oscars)

While the doll loves the party, I am loving the entire giftset!!  When I first saw this offering from the WClub, my thought was “Now THAT is a gift set!!!”  If they wanted to leave the WClub members happy after a year of fairly large product delivery delays, this will do it.  Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for this one.  I adore that this is a raven haired Elyse ( even though we received another brunette Elyse offering at convention but poor girl suffers from hydrocephalic hairstyle **see previous blog post**so there you have it).  I love the makeup and hair and the gown, while still a little too close to black for me, is gorgeous.  I am really loving the jewelry in this offering as well.

WClub members have a generous 2 and a half weeks to decide if they want to preorder this beauty.  Deadline to order is Tuesday, January 5th, 2016 at Noon Eastern Time (New York Time).

Are WClub members excited about this offering??  Oh, I think so. Winking smile

Integrity Toys 2015 Convention “Cinematic” Part II–Convention Exclusives

Let me start out by defining “convention exclusives”.  Convention exclusives are dolls or items that are available for purchase only to convention attendees.  These are not the freebies or gifts given to attendees these are simply items that were available for purchase to convention attendees.  I am not including the Grace Kelly Eugenia in this list because she was available to WClub members.   This was the first year that Integrity Toys gave this option ( and a good one in my opinion) so we have a whole other category of “convention exclusives available to WClub”.  The groups of dolls  that fall into this category are

1) I.T. Sales room exclusives

2) Centerpiece dolls

3) Workshop dolls

4) WClub luncheon and Welcome cocktail dolls

I.T. Sales Room Exclusives

Well hello Elizabeth Taylor!!  That was the general consensus of the inspiration for this beauty.  Perhaps one of her Butterfield 8 outfits was the clothing inspiration for this one.  That would be my guess as it has an obvious nod to a lingerie look.  Loved this look and the hairstyle on the Kyori is to die for.  The shoes on this one have a weird fit to them…as in they almost don’t fit.  As long as she is standing stationary, no problem but if you pick this one up and off the stand…look for the shoes on the floor.  Other than that, this ones fabulousElizabeth Taylor in Cat on a hot tin Roof

I am not sure of the “cinematic” tie in on this one other than it looks like something a current starlet would wear to a movie premier.  The shoes and accessories are to die for.  That purse!! This is a perfect look for the NuFace line.  Edgy, modern and chic.  Don’t know if I will be keeping the doll but I certainly have plans for the fashion and accessories.

I am rapidly becoming a big fan of the Dominique face mold.  This one has absolute attitude and even though she does not fit in with what I normally collect…I purchased.  She is just so…well…bad ass.  The body suit will be sold or repurposed.  This Dominique is destined for a queen of the board room photo shoot.

Poppy stuck with Valley of the Dolls for this convention.  Not a bad place to be either.  This is a titian haired Poppy with an animal print coat.  Umm…no brainer…she was in my shopping cart with the Marilyn Monroe Vanessa ( another animal print couture item) first.  Thank you David!!

Was not into this one.  Can’t give you any specific reason why but he just didn’t speak to me at convention and as I am looking at these pictures again…Nope…still not speaking to me.

 Centerpiece Dolls:

The convention has 2 evening meal events and one luncheon event plus an extra WClub luncheon if you purchase a ticket.  For each of these meal events there is a centerpiece doll.  Typically 5-7 people get the opportunity to purchase a centerpiece doll.  They are highly collectible because their issue numbers are very low.  Here are the centerpiece dolls for this year

Some were thinking ( and I would include myself in this group) this did not have the “Wow” factor that many have come to expect from centerpiece dolls of the past.  I did not get a clear “cinematic” vibe from this one.  It was the first event centerpiece too so as far as pacing of the events, it gave off a ho hum feel.  You want to start the first event off with a bang…you know…get people excited about the convention.  This one didn’t do it in my opinion.  It made me feel like Chanel fashion club luncheon.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Chanel and I adored this fashion and doll…just not as a centerpiece.  I did purchase this one as my number was selected.  I am not sure if she is a keeper for me though.

I never seem to win the right to purchase the Poppy parker centerpiece…it’s my lot in life and I accept it.  This year however, I had some dear friends who helped me out and I was able to purchase this beauty.  (Thank you Cynthia and Marcello {Hugs})

Stage Presence

The WClub luncheon is a little different than other centerpieces.  For the past couple of years, the centerpiece at the WClub luncheon is available for everyone at the table to purchase.  I like this idea because it is a nice perk for the WClub members.

Clearly we have an homage to the “Blonde bombshell” herself Jean Harlow.

Loved the classic platinum tresses, dramatic eyeliner and bold red lips on this one.  This centerpiece would also have been an amazing choice as the convention doll for this year.

Is it Elyse or Elise???  Lets make up our minds.  I have yet to see a designer or movie influence for this one.  I guess you could say that the hairstyle is reminiscent of The Coneheads.  Seriously!!  This is the mother of all bitch bumps for Integrity Toy’s hairstyles.  Not sure how to tone it down even a little.  I think I may have to just take this one down.  I’m all for a great updo but come on people.  This went past “updo” and went straight to hydrocephalic.  On the positive, I like the pockets on this gown.   This is also my favorite face mold and my number was called.  Had to buy her.

Workshop dolls:

A workshop doll?!!!!  Are you kidding me?!!!  This could have easily been a convention exclusive doll and it would have sold out the first day.  She is Edgy enough for Nu.Face and classy enough for F.R.  Complete package head to toe and the fact that she is one of the twins didn’t hurt either.  Super glad I decided to purchase the doll for this one.  Nice work Integrity!

LOTS of platinum hair going on for this convention.  He is super cute though and love the white leather bomber jacket.

WClub Luncheon and Welcome Cocktail Party Dolls:

Last but not least…the WClub luncheon doll.  This was a doll that you purchased with the price of your lunch.  The ticket for lunch cost $125.00 therefore, I take exception to the description “giveaway souvenir”.  Souvenir certainly…giveaway…not even close.  And lest my grasp of the English language is not as secure as I thought it was, I consulted Webster on this one too.

give·a·way

[ˈɡivəˌwā]

NOUN

a thing that is given free, especially for promotional purposes:

Again I state…giveaway???  not even close.

So…what do I think of our “souvenir”?  First of all I also take exception to the description “dressed doll”.  She is an Eden so I am inclined to love her.  My first thought when I saw her though was…AND?  As in, And…where are her clothes?  It isn’t as if I don’t have a gazillion things to put her in but still, a little wrap dress?, swim suit cover up?, sarong?…hell, I would have settled for a Bjork like swan dress….SOMETHING ( and it would have satisfied the whole cinematic theme as she work that to the Oscars LOL).  I am not upset by her per se…just thinking a better descriptor would have been “lingerie doll”. 

As an addendum to this this years convention exclusives, attendees had the option of also purchasing a special “early bird” cocktail party ticket. The ticket included a doll.   There were two versions available and you had to sign up ahead of time for the version you wanted.  Of course, as with all things, one version was WAY more popular than the other and she became the hot ticket of the convention.

Integrity Toys 2015 Convention “Cinematic” Part 1- The Convention Collection

I was thrilled to attend this years Integrity Toys convention.  It was held in Long Beach, CA  and the hotel was situated directly across from the water overlooking the Queen Mary.  There were many, many fun places to eat and shop and a bonus for me was the opportunity to be treated and taken to a lovely brunch on the Queen Mary by  some amazing and generous friends.  { Hugs to Jim and Brian! }

This years convention was not marked with the drama of “delayed in customs” containers.  The convention collection was a mixture of old and new Hollywood glamour that held mostly true to the “Cinematic” theme.

Amazing right?!!  In hindsight, and in my humble opinion, this should have been the convention doll.  You will understand this more when you see photos of the actual convention doll.  It was a giftset, it was Agnes, and it was an anniversary year for Integrity Toys ( 20 years in business).  This would have been a convention doll worthy of the theme and company that produced it.  Again…just my opinion.

Pre Convention Report Photo Shoot

I am the worst procrastinator…I really am.  I have been sitting down to do post convention reports for the past week and somehow…I just get going on another project.  I have no idea why I do this because the convention was AWESOME and all the reports will be fun.  All I know is that today…when I had every intention of sitting down to do the convention write-up, I decided to do a photo shoot.  Hopefully this posting will clear the logjam of post convention information gathering in my head and clear the way for future posts. 

I recently took receipt of some amazing OOAK repaints by the amazing artist Jon Copeland (selojspa).  I loved the Mood Changer Poppy Parker set we received through the WClub but wanted to see what Jon could do with the brunette and lavender haired heads.  What I received blew my mind.  Here is Miss brunette mood changer Poppy Parker enhanced by Jon.

Model:  Brunette Mood Changer Poppy Parker

Outfit , Shoes and Jewelry:  On Set ( gift fashion from 2015 I.T. Cinematic Convention)

Still trying to figure out the hair.  Are those bangs?  Not a deal breaker for me, I am sooooo buying.  The look is straight off the catwalk too.  The recent Nu.Face capsule collection took inspiration from Balmain and the design team at Integrity went back to the young and talented Olivier Rousteing for this offering.  Here is a look from Balmain’s 2016 Resort collection.
