Ok, so each year at Integrity Toys convention there are design competitions. The person who wins the judges award for the advanced design competition at the convention has the option of having their design actually produced. Integrity Toys started doing this a couple of years ago as a perk to entering the design competition. This past year, the winner of this award was Jason Kramer. His design was a combination of street grunge and haute couture. Not easy to do folks but he managed to meld it into a cohesive and stylish design. Interesting to note…this was Jason’s first Integrity Toys convention. This is not, however, his first foray into designing. He is Artistic Director and Lead Designer at a costume design company that specializes in custom made dance wear. Jason, we are so glad you came to your first convention!! We hope you return!

Yes…I know…her bump gives her a lightly cone head appearance. I like it though. Normally I don’t go for the “Snooky” bump in hairstyles but sometimes it works. I can’t say that “the bump” will stay because I have seen some stellar hair restyles of this lady ( take a look a Shuga Shug’s blog in my blogroll for pics ) and I may have to “de-bump” in the future. For now, it stays and I think she has such a haughty high fashion look as is. I love that aloof look. It’s as if she is saying “I will allow you to take my picture now”. I must say, I did not care for the original clothing she came in. I go for more of the classic clothing but I have to say the original outfit’s colors were fun and it was well made. I like her original boots…just not on her LOL! Anywhoo…it was commented recently that it would be nice to see the before pictures and then the restyle…excellent notion. Here is Ms. Rayna as she came originally.
