J’Adore Miss Amour

The title speaks for itself.  When I first saw this doll my reaction was this…

This amazing creature is gorgeous.  The dress is beyond people…just…BEYOND.

It’s inspired by Dior I and many believe, what is not to love about that.  Fashion inspiration image find goes to Nata-Leto on Flickr.  Big THANKS to Rogier Corbeau of Dutch Barbie World for letting me use this image.

The Black and White Ball Gown

I had the hardest time coming up with a title for this post.  Usually, something comes to me right away and that is what I go with.  For these set of photos, nothing was jumping out at me so I asked myself “ What are these pictures about?”.  The answer that came back to me was…the dress.  These photos are primarily about this amazing black and white ball gown made by Eifeldolldress .

A Passion for Pink

This title should be a weekly entry at Inside the Fashion Doll Studio…maybe it will be now that I have said it.  I recently discovered the beautiful work of Antonio Realli and was very pleased to add one of his recent collection pieces to my ever growing 1/6 clothing hoard.

For those diorama artists out there, the flooring I used in these shots is a new contact paper I used found here.  I love that it is super shiny like real marble.  Love the reflection it gives of the gown!  We are finally starting to get some sunshine in the Pacific Northwest.  The forecast for the next week is SUNNY!!  I will be taking advantage and photographing many projects.

Some of you have already noticed that I have started an Instagram account ( see sidebar to the right just under archives).  Feel free to follow me there for sneaks of upcoming items or additional photos of some behind the scenes stuff.  It’s my goal to post something daily there.  A goal….to be reached at some point in the future.  Winking smile

Lavender Luxury

Easter weekend is upon us and everything is coming to life in the garden again.  The trees  are all blooming pink and white, the daffodils are up and the lilacs are on the way.  Life is good.  With this symphony of pastels booming in the yard, I had to do something in the studio to celebrate it.  I had the perfect model in mind too.  Recently, I sent the lavender haired Mood Changer Poppy Parker head over to Jon Copeland-Childers for a “spa” treatment and what he sent back to me had my jaw dropping.

There are spa treatments and then there are Jon treatments.  I stand by the Jon treatment.

**Note** Before I get a gazillion questions, I have to declare here that the luggage I used is not OOAK.  It is the set from the Poppy Parker Sabrina series but I have photo shopped the trim to lavender.

This suit is a favorite of mine.  It is from the IT 2013 Premier Convention Collection.  I was searching through some Edith Head sketches a couple months back and stumbled across what might have been the inspiration for this one.

Poppy in the Conservatory

…with Professor Plum and a candlestick {Snort!}.  No, we are not playing the game Clue…but it sure sounds like it.  Some times I have an idea for a photo and it simply won’t go away.  I received a couple new pieces of furniture this past week and I knew I was in trouble when I formulated a game plan before I went to bed and woke up with new ideas on how to make the scene work.  I realized…I was already on the road to doing the diorama so I might as well get on with it.  My enthusiasm ( cough, cough obsession) was fueled even further by some amazing photos on Flickr  by Stilleto Queen (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stilettoqueen/).  This one was an idea that needed some lead time for construction so that explains my blog absence for the past week.  I was very lucky to find some resources online for this shoot and I will share them at the end of this post.  If you wish to make some of the items in this post, get ready to make glue, glue dots and scissors your best friends.

Some candid shots during the shoot.  Loved how the sun was hitting the scene while I shot this!!

Photo of the set up…real high tech…right down to the Star Wars AND Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit games holding up the chandelier.  My family and I are complete geeks.  Yes, that is an old window providing the back wall.   I love it!

Do you like the French flower pails and tin pitchers?  Well they are made of paper and available for download at:

http://miniatures.about.com/od/dollhouseprintables/ss/flowercontainers.htm

Actual downloads are on page two of article above and in multiple scales.  These are all in 1/6 scale.  I used heavier weight presentation paper for this project because cardstock was just too heavy and hard to work with.  I also wanted a slight shine to the items but not glossy so the presentation paper worked well.  Tip:  to keep the flower pails from tipping over when you put something in them, fill them up halfway with rice.  It weighs it down and helps hold the stems in place . Tip:  Ever filled a mini pot and wondered what to use for dirt?  Try coffee grounds.

Happy mini gardening!!


IDEX Integrity Toys Reveal–Poppy Parker as Sabrina!

Today Integrity Toys revealed a small portion of their 2012 lineup and all I can say is WOWZA!

I guess my biggest squeal moment was the announcement that they will be doing Poppy Parker™ as Sabrina®.  This is an iconic fashion movie that put Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy on the fashion map.  You will see that Givenchy is never credited in the Sabrina movie as the designer of Ms. Hepburn’s exquisite wardrobe.  Edith Head went on to receive the Oscar for this movie even though she did not design the female leads wardrobe.  Let’s face it folks…it’s Sabrina’s wardrobe and the gamine eyes of Audrey Hepburn that carry that movie. I have tremendous respect for Ms. Head’s work but I never understood her willingness to accept the award for that movie.  Not right.   Most accounts state that Monsieur Givenchy was always an extreme gentleman about the whole thing and I guess in the long run…everyone knew those designs were his and not Ms. Heads work so the true credit went to the true owner.  He should have received the award though.  Monsieur Givenchy went on to work with Ms. Hepburn in Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Integrity Toys designer David Buttry did the most amazing job in my opinion of bringing these to the 1/6 scale arena.

So sweet!  Love the attention to detail in this giftset.  I love the fact that Mr Buttry included the cooking smock with this set.  Brilliant!

As a fan of the movie and an avid collector of Poppy Parker, this entire series is an absolute slam dunk for me.  Mr Buttry…my happy collector heart is full and my sad collector wallet will be empty….. thanks to you.

If you are interested in any of these lovely ladies, I suggest emailing your Integrity Toys dealer ASAP.  These won’t last long.  More to come form Integrity Toy’s IDEX reveal in a few hours.  Winking smile
