Integrity Toys “The Premiere” Convention Day 3

And on the third day there was rest.  Well…kind of.  The hectic daily pattern that is convention slowed down on Saturday to basically two events.  The WClub luncheon and the final dinner.  I managed to get myself out of bed early enough to finish up the blog posts for the previous day and then all my good intentions of being on top of blogging went out the window.  I am now home and finishing up LOL!

The WClub Luncheon

The WClub luncheon is an event that you sign up for separately and have to be a member of the WClub for.  This year, it was announced that it would be a Victoire Roux event.  In years past it has been a FR2 event.  For this event, it is a sit wherever you want.  Our table of 10 quickly filled up with some great people that I was not able to see at some of the other events.

The centerpiece was STUNNING!  And…even better… we all had a chance to purchase her!

Chris Stoeckel talked about his love for 1950’s fashion and how it inspired his designs for Victoire.  He also shared a sneak peak photo of the next Victoire coming down the pipe.

It says IT Direct so get ready for the possibility of a lottery people.

Once the luncheon was over, it was time to go upstairs, rest and attempt to start boxing up the insane amount of loot accumulating from this convention.  Integrity Toys really spoiled us this time around.

The Red Carpet Gala with Jason Wu

By this point in the convention many conventioneers realize “ Hey wait….we get a convention doll too!!”.  Somehow, I always get to Saturday afternoon and I realize that the big reveal is yet to come LOL!  It ALWAYS sneaks up on me then I spend the afternoon hours thinking “ I wonder who she will be?”  We were so overloaded with amazing swag at this point that anything was going to be complete gravy on a plate of steak, lobster and chocolate decadence.

We walked into the ball room and were hit with a very edgy Jason Wu designed dress on a beautiful Vanessa.  This one was a straight of the runway design by Jason.

Jason Wu also made a special call out to my fellow blogger Shuga Shug .  It was very deserving recognition for an amazing and inspirational doll blog.  Shug, you rock it girlfriend…every post and every picture are an inspiration and I thank you.

Finally, the big moment of the evening had come and the convention doll was revealed.  It was another straight off the runway gown by Jason Wu and apparently a particular favorite of Jason’s.

Holy Shitake mushrooms people!!!  Now THAT’S a convention doll. We filed out of the ballroom happy little campers with our loot and wonderful convention memories.  The real work began upon returning to our rooms….how the heck were we going to get all this convention swag home??!!!

Exceptional Tatyana

While the rest of the fashion world is focused on New York this weekend and the debut of designers 2014 spring ready to wear lines, ITFDS was focused on this fall.  I love fall.  I love the colors and the bite of cool temperatures that typically we awaken to in the Pacific Northwest this time of year.  Another thing I love is to rediscover something I had put aside for a while and had not looked at.  I do this a lot with dolls.  I debox, photograph, then it is off to the next one.  Even sweeter for me, is an opportunity to give a model their due.  In other words, finally show or photograph something in a way that I have yet to be able to capture.  I typically have something in my head that I want to capture when I photograph…but sometimes it just never transfers through the camera.  That happened with this amazing Tatyana.  Thanks to a very generous table mate at convention, I was able to purchase her and after deboxing, was never able to quite capture a set of photos I was happy with….until today.

What I am listening to in the studio this week:


HP Eugenia…More Redressing Fun

My camera and I don’t seem to be able to get enough of this lady in red so I have a few more shots to share from a day of  redressing  fun.  My favorite set out of the three redresses is directly below.  I love Hilda’s dress and the fact that Ms. Eugenia is waiting to enjoy a glass of wine and perhaps a picnic as if to celebrate the autumn season.   Fall or Autumn ( however you call it) is one of my absolute favorite seasons…it means the holidays are right around the corner.  I love the smell of leaves, the vibrant colors of the season and those crisp foggy mornings where shafts of sun ( if we see it at all in the Pacific Northwest) fight their way through the foggy curtain.   It’s a dreamy sort of light and feel and I just adore it. Hope you enjoy the photos.
