Magia2000

O wow it felt like Christmas morning when Rebecca send me her pictures from yesterdays Magia2000 Ooak party. What an amazing gift to see so much beauty and details in this collection.

The space theme from this years convention would not be my theme. But wow, now I see how Fashionable Barbie can be in Space. What I always love about Magia2000 is that  their collection has a theme. And especially this year the inspiration is so diverse inside the theme. But it all comes beautiful together in one collection. From modern Couture inspiration by Ralph & Russo and Chanel, vintage Balenciaga, Lady gaga, and vintage Star Wars and Star Trek Icons.

So sit back am enjoy this amazing collection.

Thomas Soderberg and Matthew Sutton

Later today I will come back with some amazing pictures Rebecca took at last night Designers Parties. But for now I have some amazing online sneaks.

First the Ooak dolls that the designer Thomas Soderberg brought with him to Houston.

I always love his work. The quality off his tailoring is amazing. And I love how he repaint his ladies.

20179608_1626289207383200_540805534_n

I think the lady in the purple dress with the striped bow is my favorite.

And this morning (European time) Matthew Sutton posted his donation for the life auction.

Her name is The Moon’s Pale Kiss. And I am in love with her.

NiniMomo, Matt Trujillo and Matthew Sutton

At the moment Rebecca and Hilda are having their Inside the Fashion Doll Studio.com & Bellisima Couture party. But later more about this event.

Here a little update of some designer sneaks released on Facebook.

the last weeks NiniMomo was posting sneaks from dolls they created for this convention on Facebook. And there are so many amazing dolls in this collection.

And just a few minutes ago they posted some pictures from their room. To give us a little sneak what to expect in a few hours when they open the doors for the collectors.

I love this Arabian duo with the camel.

20228950_1565931040117573_5337631519511773346_n

And how cool are these aliens !!!

20046754_1565939563450054_392902610850565516_n

They look to be inspired by the work of the Spanish Designer Manuel Albarr√°n.

And my absolute favorite is this Queen.

20108144_1565939540116723_3864191942739671402_n

The detail on this dress is amazing !!! inspired by the famous moon caped gown from the 2016 Fall Winter Alexander McQueen dress that Nicole Kidman wore at the 2016 Met Gala.

Ooak designers Matt Trujillo and Matthew Sutton are not attending this year convention. But they did donated 2 gorgeous dolls to the Silence Auction.

Galactic Grove Silkstone Francie.

And Starcrossed Ken.

Agnes is Merveilleuse!!

I don‚Äôt think you need a translator to realize that this says Agnes is marvelous.  For quite a while now, it has been an Integrity Toy‚Äôs WClub custom to offer up an ‚Äúevent doll‚ÄĚ made available to members when they hold a webinar.  It‚Äôs a nice little perk for members and it‚Äôs 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!!

Yep‚Ķyou 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‚Ķin it‚Äôs romantic iterations as well as it‚Äôs strength.  He ends with the power suit to end all power suits.  Let‚Äôs 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‚Äôt 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‚ĶJordan in these honey tresses?!!‚ĶYUM!  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‚ĶJordan has a last name now too!

There is a Fendi feel to that purse Winking smile

I love the doll on this one‚Ķlet 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‚Ķwell..it‚Äôs not my favorite..and not really getting a Riviera vibe either.  I adore the accessories.  The shirt with the bow detailing‚Ķlove.  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‚Äô Zorro people!!  I believe I fainted when I saw this one‚Ķthen recovered quickly and put this doll as #1 on my buy list.  What do I start with‚ĶThat color on Adele‚Ķbrilliant!!  The scarf with the hat‚Ķinspired!  The belted suit‚Ķ.sublime!!  The accessories‚Ķperfection!!  The facial screening‚Ķsultry and strong‚Ķ.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‚Äôs definitely showcases strong and feminine but not necessarily Riviera chic.  Doesn‚Äôt change the fact that I am buying it though

Too much fashion

My poor, poor wallet!!!

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

Whattttt!!!!  Yep‚Ķyou see it with your own eyes.  This doll will come with two sets of bottom legs ( knee to foot).  One with be high arched foot like normal and other will be newly engineered flat foot option with hinged ankle..very Poppy like.  I love that they are giving us both options!!  And‚Ķit‚Äôs a lottery doll of course.  CRAAAAAPPPPP!!

Oh my!!  A tanned Elyse!!  Again I hope the lottery Gods are kind.  There is a high edition size on this one so that‚Äôs 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‚Äôt make in this or the previous blog post about Nu.Face was the fact that these bodies don‚Äôt 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‚Äôs Adele will be talked about for years and years.  I would also like to give Integrity Toys and it‚Äôs 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.

2017 Integrity Toys Nu.Face Collection Revealed!!

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc. 2017 NuFace Heirloom collection image

This collection marks Jessy Ayala‚Äôs second season as lead designer for the Nu.Face line and he has not disappointed.  He has provided a collection rich in color and nostalgia while keeping it edgy and current.  This collection seems to draw inspiration from the 2016 Louis Vuitton fashion shows as well as the accessories.   Let‚Äôs take a moment to talk about the accessories.  They are BEYOND people.  Jessy‚Äôs attention to every minute detail in this line amazes and astounds.  If you love Louis Vuitton bags‚Ķyou will love this line.  Jessy explained in the webinar that his basic inspiration for this line drew on objects of value..heirlooms.  He explained there are romantic notes with rich jewel tone colors and a definite haunted mansion feel.   Therefore, each doll has some kind of heirloom in her set.  Also important to note, all of the characters have last names now!   So enough of my blathering‚Ķlet‚Äôs get to the dolls.

How cute are those freckles?!!!  From the titian hair to the combat boots‚ĶLOVE!!  The back of the shirt is MAJOR and that purse‚Ķdon‚Äôt even get me started with the purse.  I love that the shirt is a body suit because they just fit better when dressing the doll IMO.  Let‚Äôs also take a moment to appreciate the thigh high fish nets!  The facial screening , according to Jessy, on this Imogen is an homage to Going Public Eugenia, a clear collector favorite‚Ķand again he brings in the heirloom nostalgia vibe with the facial screenings.  Nicely done Mr. Ayala.

And again‚Ķthe accessories are slaying me.  Wait‚Ķis that a spider ring?!!  Sign me up!  For this doll, Jessy offered that the little travel case is the heirloom‚Ķand what an heirloom.  That case put this doll in the my shopping cart.  The shoes helped it along and that spider ring clinched it.  That jacket with it‚Äôs split sleeves intrigue me and the skirt has a LOT of mix and match potential.  The screening on this gorgeous Latino skin toned Erin is an homage to Paparazzi Bait Adele.  Vibrant and sultry.  Stunning.

Wow!!  while this is not the style I collect ( the high cut legs on the bodysuit have the Mom in me saying ‚Äú nope ‚Äú ), I can appreciate the styling.  The accessories are beyond again.  The heirloom of this look is the bracelet.  Those tassel earrings are all that and a bag of chips too.  The glasses add to the overall motocross vibe with the pants.  I am again amazed at the details of this ensemble.  Look at all those topstitched seams in those pants!  Holy Cow!  The facial screening on this lady is flat out gorgeous and I considered getting this one just for the doll.  Will most likely regret it later but I passed.  I love how that mulberry stripe in the pants is brought forward by the lip color.  I also appreciate the two tones of soft greyish blue Jessy has paired with the rich black and vibrant berry color.  Yummmmmm!

Fierce!!  Too fierce for words almost.  From that soft petal shrug to the antique heirloom mirror, this woman owns it.  She is also an homage to Paparazzi Bait Adele in facial screening.  For me, this lady is all about that silver hair and sulrty eyes.  I‚Äôm not super excited about the lavender hued lips but that can be tweaked some.  In the early days of Integrity Toy‚Äôs collections, there were offerings of lingerie dolls and Jessy is bringing that bag around with this heirloom theme.  Love that.

If Nadja was the sultry, then this Erin is the soft romantic antithesis..well..until you get to those leather boot spats!!  Wow!!  Love!!  And they are like textured snakeskin leather like too.  Oh‚Ķmy‚Ķword.  My heart can‚Äôt take much more LOL!  The heirloom in this set is the brush.  The baby blonde tresses and softened facial screening bring out the romance in this set. 

If you are interested at all about these offerings, run don‚Äôt walk to your IT dealers for these dolls people.  They are selling out fast.

And now for the set everyone wants but only a few lucky ducks will be able to get.  Time for a lottery folks and this time the twins are the coveted want and need for many collectors.

This set has me all gooey inside.  LOVE!!  All the accessories alone would have me buying but the twins ( especially Lilith) are my favorites.  That leather crossover vest on Eden‚ĶDying!  Lilith‚Äôs entire outfit has me fainting.  Add in the LV bags and I‚Äôm a goner.  Oh lottery Gods, may you shine favorably on me‚Ķor‚Ķin the event I miss out on this one‚Ķmay you give me sharp elbows with which to battle in the secondary market for this set. 

So that is the Nu.Face collection for this year.  Wow!!  Don‚Äôt you feel like you have eaten a really good meal at a Michelin starred restaurant?!!  There were so many highlights of this collection that I can‚Äôt pick a favorite doll.  I would have to give the win to the detailed accessories though and the general cohesiveness and feel of the collection.  There was something for everyone I think.  If you wanted soft romantic, you got it‚Ķif you wanted edgy fierce‚Ķyou got that too.  I also think Mr. Ayala has given the market that youthful fashion forward vibe that many collectors have been wanting to return to Nu.Face.  This look is current.  It is now and extremely marketable.  Excellent job done by the young rising talent of Jessy Ayala and smart of Integrity Toys to bring him on board.

Reign of the Redheads

I have a special affinity for redheads.  I have always been drawn to the vibrant hair color and often, this hair hue is what I gravitate to when I want a model for a dramatic shot.  Red hair and freckles run in my family of origin and while I was not lucky enough to get the red hair ( the freckles‚ĶI did get) I was thrilled that my son was born with strawberry blond hair.  So‚Ķin honor of those redheads, I did this shoot.  The exquisite gowns are a recent acquisition from the talented Rimdoll on Etsy.

Still not a  fan of the articulated bodies on these silkstone Barbies.  It is very limited articulation and it irks me that you cant bend the hand at wrist joint to put it fully on the dolls hip.

Love this elegant Black and White Tweed Suit Silkstone‚Äôs facial screening though.
