New Jason Wu Elyse Announced!

Yesterday the WClub announced a new exclusive lottery during it’s week long Dolly Days extravaganza.  We have a new Jason Wu designed Elyse people!  She will, sadly,  be an IT direct right to buy lottery  with an edition size of a paltry 450.  Mud pit time.  Many will happily enter the pit for this one.

I really wished they had showed the back view of her hair.  It looks like a french twist….I am guessing though.  If it is…divine!!

Holy hand grenades people!!!  The dress has pockets!!!  {no judgment for the Monty Python reference either please LOL!}

This facial screening reminds me of J’Adore La Fete Elyse.

Not sure what the Pre Fall 2016 name is all about.  After scouring the released photos of his prefall 2016 line I could find no reference to this design.  Some super sleuths over at the WClub forums did find this though…

Kate Bosworth in Jason Wu at a red carpet in 2016.  This definitely appears to be the inspiration.  Doesn’t appear to have ever been produced  except as this one off.  Very pretty on Ms. Bosworth and beautiful on Elyse as well.  Well played Mr. Wu!!!

For you WClub members who want to try for this one, your deadline is January 6th, 2020 at noon EST.

The Elyse Chronicles: Daywear to Nightwear

©2018 Inside The Fashion Doll Studio - The Elyse Chronicles Daywear to Nightwear

The Bergdorf Goodman Elsye in the navy pants and yellow and navy sweater is clearly a daywear look.  To me it is VERY Sonya Rykiel and while I loved the turban on the real life fashion, I don’t feel it translated well to 1/6 scale. 

©2010 Vogue 2011 Spring RTW Jason Wu

Perhaps the turban will be put to good use elsewhere in my collection…that remains to be seen but…I needed to transform this Elyse from daywear to eveningwear.

This is all in one humongous giftset!

How do many collectors feel about this???

Take my money

Take my money 2

Yep…that is me…the lady in red above and to be honest I would be slamming it down on the counter too with a definitive “YASSSSS”.  Vanessa might not be my favorite face mold but THIS Vanessa for me is “all that and a bag of chips”.  Many are lamenting the increased price tag and I get that.  She is more expensive, true.  She also comes with three separate and amazing looks and …LUGGAGE!!  I guess my threshold for being willing to pay more is, luggage.  I don’t think I’m alone

Preorder for this lovely is open to WClub members UNTIL JANUARY 19TH, 2018 AT NOON EASTERN TIME!

The Power of Pink Continues…

Yep…not ready to let go of the pink theme this week and I am sticking with the same designer as well.  As we approach this years Integrity Toys convention, I though I would pull out one of my favorite gift dolls from last years convention…Paper Doll Poppy Parker.

The Sleeper has Awakened

Ok..I have to admit the title was for all you “Dune” geeks out there LOL!  This line may be from the book and movie “Dune” but we have a bit of a sleeper situation going on in the Poppy Parker Bon Bon collection.  Her name is Night at the Ballet Poppy Parker and she has turned out WAY better than the promo shots.

Here is what we were expecting…

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc.

Not bad but I have to admit…she was my least favorite in the whole lineup and I almost didn’t order her.  Boy oh boy am I glad I did because this is what arrived on Saturday.  Check out the gorgeous green eyes on this lady!

Couple things to note:

1) The hair on my doll needed a little tweaking after I took the hair net off.  It didn’t take too much to put it all back in order.

2) The necklace is just gold, no stones.  This seems kind of weird to me as the bracelet has beautiful blue stones in it but there you go.  It looks like it should have a few stones in the necklace or it looks like there was space for it but there aren’t any.  Don’t know if this is an oversight or just a last minute budget cut but a number of people have commented on FB that they don’t have any stones in their necklaces either so I don’t think it’s just me.  The promo shots of the accessories don’t really show the necklace that well so it may have been intended to be just plain gold all the way along.  Just wanted to make people aware.

Huge thanks to my dealer Barb at Windy City Dolls for getting these new Poppy’s to me so quickly!!  You are the best.

Let the redressing and photographing begin!!!

Opening the Treasure Chest: “Tokyo Chic”

One of the things I enjoy most about The National Barbie Doll Collector Convention are the amazing One of a Kind (OOAK) artists that bring their creations to the convention.  Most of them sell at private shows or in their rooms in the days leading up to the official start of the convention.  Many collectors, including myself, go up to 4 days early to convention so they can attend these private parties and see what kind of OOAK creations they can add to their collections.  For some collectors, these OOAK’s are the focus of their collection.  There are so many talented artists within this community.

One such artist is Julia Lapshova of Julia Originals.  I was lucky to get to her room early enough and purchased this lovely creation.  Her attention to detail and tailoring is always extraordinary.  I am so very happy to have Ms. Tokyo Chic in my personal collection.  You can also follow Julia on Facebook

A Picnic in Paris

Now that Integrity Toys has announced their collections and all of our collector wallets are sad and limping, I thought it was time to return to Paris for some fun.  If I was returning to Paris, Ms. Poppy was going to join me.  This new “Ooh La La” Poppy Parker is my current muse and I am loving the giftset mix and match options.

2016 Integrity Toys – The <3 MLP™ Collection

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc.

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc.

Yes indeedy.  Integrity Toys has obtained licensing through Hasbro to bring you a collection inspired by favorite My Little Pony characters.  Now…I am going to admit right off the bat… I was never a collector of my little pony.  They were after my time.  My daughter, however, was a huge fan.  Even though I may not be in the market to collect or purchase this collection, I can appreciate the time and though that went into it.  Jessy Ayala is a new designer with Integrity Toys and this is his first full collection with the company.  As I listened to the thought and attention he brought to each and every item, I was extremely impressed.  Well done Jessy!

Things you need to know if you want to buy:

1) This is IT direct product which means you go directly to Integrity Toys to purchase

2) Super limited edition sizes of 500 per doll.  WClubbers will have first dibs on these then they will be offered up to general public.  See each doll for approximate release date

Now that is a colorful collection that embodies the fun of these ever popular toys.


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.

I recently had a new logo designed for my main photography business and wanted to try it out on some of the doll shots too.  Not too bad Winking smileThank you Daniel at Photologo!!

For those of you awaiting the beginning of the series of posts on the blogging and doll photography presentation I did at Barbiecon…fear not.  It should be up starting this Friday, August 19th.  For those of you who did attend the class, the images in this post were taken using the “light bouncing” technique I talked about.


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!
