Poppy Parker: The Model Traveler Collection

Hello everyone!  Coming to you from quarantine in the Pacific Northwest of the United States Smile.  I hope this blog post finds you in good health and looking forward towards hope and happiness.  I know most if not all of us were more than ready for some good doll collecting news so the new release from Integrity Toys and their very popular Poppy Parker line was a long cool drink of water in the middle of this quarantine desert. 

David Buttry has given us a treat with this latest collection.  He takes us on an aggressive world tour just at the time when  we are most thirsty for dreams of travel.  The journey is rich in sophistication, details and Jackie O’ styling from the late 60’s and early 70’s.  While this time period is probably my least favorite for fashion, David manages to convince me otherwise with these dolls.  I want every last one of them including the lottery.  Let’s get started with the journey….

We start our travels in New York.

This titian haired beauty exemplifies the style and aesthetic David Buttry was going for.  A Jackie O vibe in the late 60’s and 70’s.  The travel bag is specially designed and screen printed to emulate vintage luggage of the time.  From the tips of her manicured fingers to the bottom of her rounded grey booted feet, She screams cool, calm, sophisticated and stylish.  Lots of mix and match pieces to play with here folks and those grey gloved hands are FR white so can be used with so many other dolls too.  She is definitely traveling in style.

Next, we board for Tokyo, Japan

Love the 1960’s – or possibly Princess Lea vibe going on with this hair!

According to David, this hairstyle was one he had used on a previous OOAK for IT convention and wanted to use it again.  I searched through my photo archive and sure enough…voila!

©2016 ITFDS IT Convention

The outfit is an homage per David I believe to a highly sought after  Vintage Japanese exclusive Barbie outfit.  This one below sold on Ebay in Canada for around $1500 in 2019.  If there is an official name for this outfit please let me know.  I am woefully ignorant of vintage Barbie and am always happy to be educated.

Vintage Barbie japanese exclusive

I love it this doll!  I love the multiple parts of this fashion too.  You can layer it or not depending on what kind of look you want to go for.  The mod jewelry is just the right accompaniment.  Her coloring is very reminiscent of “Out of this World Poppy Parker” and she is one of my favorites so no surprise I am drawn to this one as well.  She was the one who caught my eye first when IT released images and apparently this one is a favorite of the designer David Buttry as well.

Next on the world wind tour is Milan…

This doll is all about that coat!  Love the bumped hairstyle with simple band and adore that David did her in a sunkissed skin tone.  I have been enthralled with the Italian miniseries based on the book “ My Brilliant Friend” so this doll was just what I needed for 1960’s Italian high fashion.  The accessories and jewelry in particular are a notch above.  The chain belt included with this set can be used as a belt or necklace so some nice options.

Last stop…the city of Lights!…Paris

Wow!!  Poppy is all grown up!!  This is sophistication with a capitol “S”!  I love that they chose the Opéra Garnier as a backdrop for this one.  It definitely adds that extra level of glamour.  This is a very sexy and smart facial screening for Poppy.  It’s the Bergdorf screening with a different eyebrow and boy does it work well.  I love the sleek high ponytail and the deep garnet lip shade and dress color.  Glittering jewels complete the opulent offering.  I will definitely be entering the lottery for this lovely and I am sure I won’t be alone.  I am happy to see the large edition sizes for this collection.  That way many of us Poppy lovers will come away happy.

Many of us were left wondering at the end of this capsule presentation “Where is London?!”  I have the answer to that….She was actually the very first Poppy Parker offering this year.

©2020 Integrity Toys - Pretty Bird Poppy Parker

This was one of the WClub signup upgrade dolls.  She represents the London stop on the Poppy World tour for 2020 per David.  Glad I ordered her then so the completest collector in me will be happy.

One final note I am compelled to make about this collection is the adorable packaging.  Alain Tremblay designed the most adorable Luggage/carryall box for this collection!  I think many of us collectors will be keeping these boxes.

If you are interested in these lovely ladies, you will need to contact Integrity Toys dealers for them.  The Sizzling in Paris Poppy will only be available to WClub members.

Loving Natalia

Here we are in the days preceding Valentine’s Day and I had a chance to photograph one of the new additions to the studio…Make Me Blush Natalia.  This doll is the second wave of the highly popular “Boudoir Collection” from Integrity Toys.  It’s designed by Jessy Ayala who is himself  a collector  and understands very well what his fellow collectors want.  His designs usually include accessories that go directly to the heart of what people like to collect.  This last capsule collection was no exception.

In 2019 pictures were released to WClub members…

She is definitely giving off the Hollywood starlit vibe.  I adored photographing her and using this chaise lounge that I had repainted and have had forever ( pullip petite luxury furniture).  She is the perfect model to convey romance for any Valentine’s Day.

Wow!  Lilith come home to Mama!!  She will be the first one in my cart.  I adore the other 2 actually so this will be a full meal deal for me this year.  I wish Lilith had a different color variant of hair.  Would have been kind of cool to have a darker turquoise or something but as it stands, the photos make it appear that Lilith has a slightly darker and bluer lavender than Eden.  It could just be lighting in the photos but will only be able to tell in hand.  Also, Lilith’s outfit isn’t a “WoW” like Eden’s was but…I figure the pieces will complement Eden’s nicely.  I am seriously loving the pink shoes and jewelry!!  Thank you Jessy!

Is it just me or is someone else humming boogie woogie bugle boy when looking at Eugenia?  Love the military vibe going on there.  I also like the adorable school girl look going on with this brown haired, scarlet lipped Poppy.  That hat we have seen a gazillion times but the adorable crimson backpack, knee socks and sporty black fingerless gloves brought this Poppy to my shopping cart.

Spring Fever-Casual

It’s a known fact that in the Pacific Northwest we many times don’t really see sunshine for months and months from November through February.  The holidays take up some of that time and normally we Pacific Northwesterners deal with it well during that time.  Once the holidays are over though…all bets are off.  I normally hit January with a hunger for the sun.  If the sun doesn’t come to us, I will invent it in my photos.  I’m bringing out the pastels and dreaming of sunshine!!

In The Palace

For those of you who follow my instagram feed, you have seen some of these images already.  It is not my intention to post images on Instagram first but sometimes it just works out that way.  If I am excited about a photo, sometimes I just can’t contain myself and have to share it immediately.  Sometimes there is just an image and no backstory or text/dialogue I want to share with it other than the image itself.  Instagram is a great platform for that.  If you don’t follow me there, consider it.  I share funny behind the scenes stories and pictures on my Instagram stories too.  My blog will still be the place to come when you want the full set of images on something and/or more information on what is in the picture.  Ok, now that public service announcement is out of the way….on to the pictures.

I had this amazing graphic a friend had sent me many moons ago and had used it in backdrops for Hilda and my sales table at Barbiecon.  I always love architectural drawings and wanted to see if it would work as a photo backdrop.  Thankfully..it did.

Elyse wasn’t the only one at the palace the day of this shoot.  Dasha made an appearance as well.

Love this shirt long skirt combo.  Sooooo elegant!!  This miniature couture designer out of Vietnam is amazing.  I will tell you that his designs take a while to manufacture and arrive.  I can also tell you that while the wait was long, I was always happy with the product.

Poppy Breaks Out

Hello intrepid followers.  It feels like every time I try to get to the blog something blocks the path.  For the past month and a half it’s been mother nature and a pesky furnace that just doesn’t want to get with the program.  While snow is beautiful and it turns the studio into one big snow globe…it it isn’t heated, its no fun to be in there.  After some very stern language and a good furnace doctor…we are back in business in the studio. 

I took delivery of some new backgrounds recently for another product photography project and realized they work really well for doll photography as well.  The company is called Replica Surfaces.  They are kind of pricey for doll photography but might be worth the investment if you want easy to set up and sturdy.  I am not being compensated at all for this plug.  Just passing on information on a product that I have enjoyed using.

New doll in the studio!!  I recently received Rendez Vous in Rio Poppy Parker from the Mission to Brazil Poppy Parker collection.  The second I got her, I saw her in green.  I had recently seen a stunning Vanity Fair cover of Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o

And I was inspired by a dress by Rimdoll on Etsy.  Here is the product of that inspiration and a newly warm studio.

Thank you all for you patience!  Looking forward to warmer days and a better relationship with my furnace.  I guess you could say we are currently in therapy .Winking smile

Black and White Forever Barbie

2020 will be the final year for the BFMC Barbie adult collector line.  While it is sad to see the end, I think it is time to let this one go.  The line since the articulated body made it’s appearance and economy measures were installed at Mattel have really taken this line down to the basic level.  Case in point, the first doll of the final series in 2020 is “Best in Black”

Barbie® Best In Black™ Doll

  • Label: Gold Label®
  • Designer: Robert Best
  • Release Date: 11/20/2019
  • Eyelashes: Painted
  • Body Type: Poseable silkstone
  • Included With Dress, pair of sheer socks,pair of shoes, & Doll Stand
  • Facial sculpt: Vintage Silkstone
  • Fashion Sewn On?: No
  • Fashion: Jet-black mini dress with stylish leg-of-mutton sleeves

Ok…so if you were looking to design and offer a doll to symbolize a funeral for the BFMC line….Mattel hit the nail on the head.  This doll is indeed headed to a funeral with all the austerity and solemnity that would entail.  No jewelry, no handbag, socks shoes and a black dress.  Okie Dokie.  Not the way this amazing BFMC line of dolls should begin the end of its career in my opinion but here we are. 

that aint right

Who knows what the last entries for this line will entail but at this point, my hopes are not high.  For it’s last offering of 2019, the BFMC managed to at least give us collectors a ball gown so I have decided to celebrate that with a blog post.  Don’t get me wrong, the BFMC has thrilled and blown  this collector away many times since 2001.  I am happy to have been able to collect this line for the past 19 years.  I am just sad to see it ending on such a low note. 

This past season, I was able to add a tree to the ITFDS studio.  The theme for the tree was all black and white.  Chanel was an inspiration.

And it inspired me to give the 2019 Black and White Forever Barbie a photo shoot.

She at least has some earrings Smile.  I’m not a huge fan of the articulated body or the glitter eye shadow but at least she has a ballgown.  I also like the two toned white with black hair in an elegant updo.   Is she worth the $100 price tag?  I would wait for a sale on this one.

Oh my word…do I even remember how to post to the blog anymore LOL!  After a very slow year for Inside the Fashion Doll Studio and very minimal postings, I am looking forward to getting back to the studio and back into a regular blogging schedule.  If you are still here, thanks for sticking with me. 

I have a fun thing to announce with this resurrection of the blog.  The WClub for 2019 is now open for registration!!  You have until noon Eastern Time on March 3rd to get your registration in if you want to be part of the 2019 WClub.  This is one I simply don’t miss.  It’s a complete no brainer for me.  This year the designers at Integrity Toys have some special perks and upgrade dolls available to lucky members.  Let’s take a look…

Integrity Toys 2018 Reveal: East 59th Cocktail Collection

©2018 Integrity Toys, Inc.-East 59th Collection

Even though the actual collection is not called the “cocktail” collection the designer Chris Stoeckel affectionately referred to it as such in Saturday’s webinar…so I’m going with that.  Chris shared that his inspiration was Dior and the fashions of the 1950’s.  He also shared that the fabrics he found really guided him on this collection.  I have to say that nobody tailor’s a garment like Chris.  His attention to that is impeccable and one of the reasons I adore this line so much.

Oh my word!!  You had me at the polka dot ascot but then you had to go and add a cheroot!!!  ( technically it’s probably a cigar because it is indeed tapered at one end but…cheroot sounded better to me).  Add in the plain black banded watch ( in my mind it’s Cartier) and that cognac snifter and its fabulousness.  Again, the details in these collections have me obsessed.  Truly wonderful.

That tangerine cocktail actually looks kind of good!  Wish it existed in real life to try!  LOVE the period accurate color explosion going on here.  I also love how Chris gives us two different looks in his designs that improves the playability and versatility of these dolls.  Well done!  That vibrant orange hat and gloves will be a favorite addition to my collection along with the yummy suit!

Ok…so Mai Tai’s are a particular favorite of mine given my family and I vacation in Hawaii a lot.  It’s no surprise that the name alone had me interested.  The doll itself with her auburn locks and swooped bangs are exquisite.  I adore the boat necked striped day dress as well as the sunny short set and jacket.  Add in those fantastic wedge sandles and charm braclet and this doll has it all.  The Mai Tai helps too.

What is it about this color?!!!  I just go gooey inside.  I am not the only one either…there have been studies done on this Tiffany blue color and it’s just one that people have a strong response to on average.  I can’t even quantify how much I love this gown .  The elegance of it plus the grace of a brunette Evelyn wearing it just makes my heart sing.  The story card for this doll states that the gold gift box is empty for a reason…there is another story there to be told.  Looks like a champagne bottle box to me .  This was first doll in the shopping cart for me from this collection but frankly…they all ended up in the cart by the end of the presentation.

First question…where is the Americano cocktail??  LOL!  Guess she knocked it back and is well on her way or perhaps that is where she is headed after a day of shopping.  I have to admit, my first thought was not a cocktail but in fact a cup of “Americano” coffee when I saw the name of this doll.  Don’t judge…I’m from Seattle and coffee is a religion here.  So my thinking was a delicate cup of espresso would have been perfect here.  I’m planning on adding it.  Drinks aside, the accessories are to die for.  That Birkin bag…faint.  The shoes with the cut outs…swoon.  The additional white shirt to wear under the sheath….brilliant!!  The little box of cannoli…ok I’m done…who do I throw the money at for this doll.

She’s back!!  And…fortified with a bottle of fine gin. Smile

LOL…ok so I was very surprised (pleasantly so) to see Miss Victoire making her comeback before the IT convention.  Technically she will indeed arrive after the convention but to have pictures of the new face mold before the convention was nice.  I’m not sure how I am feeling about this new “updated” face mold.  She is definitely younger and I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about it.  The fashion though is wonderful!  How yummy is this brocade?!!  Absolutely love that she is a redhead in this version and coupled with this blue brocade…fabulousness.

Love the playability and wonderful accessories in this line.  The vibrant colors and rich storylines work well together.  Hats off to Mr. Chris Stoekel and his eye for details and historical couture fashion.  How he manages to translate some of the iconic 1950’s fashion trends into 1:6 scale is beyond me.  He has a gift.

Last line..Fashion Royalty Collection reveal post will be up this afternoon.

Integrity Toys 2018 Reveal: Nu.Face Counter Culture

Jessy Ayala continues at the helm of this Nu.Face line this year and collectors are thrilled.  This year he shared that India and the festival of colors were large inspiration for this years collection.  Additional inspirations were the rave culture with a touch of fetish.  All these influences came together in a rich display of colors and styles.  Jessy’s creativity continues to impress and amaze this collector.

Wow!!  Festival of colors is definitely represented here!  As with the previous The Industry collection, I again give credit to the designer for his attention to the details.  The plethora of jewelry and the addition of interesting glasses is a plus.  While this collection does not fit in with what I personally collect, I can appreciate the thoughtful and cohesive designing that went into this collection.  I love that Jessy paired these very edgy designs with soft facial screenings on many of the ladies.  I also loved the very edgy screenings on Annik and Violaine. 

I would also like to take a moment and say a big “Thank You!” to the marketing department and their decision to include images with more natural lighting on the closeups and accessories.  That really makes a difference to buyers and it was thoughtful to include them.  I loved the edgy lighting …very clublike…on bulk of the images but I really appreciated that they included normal light shots for those collectors that were interested in buying and wanted to see the true colors of the makeup and accessories.  Thank you!

Next up will be my 2 favorite lines in the reveal on Saturday…East 59th and Fashion Royalty.  Expect those emails in the next 15 minute and half hour.

From boots to bag, this one has it all for me.  The glasses were a nice detail add and the thing that pushed me over the edge and got me to add this one to my wish list from my dealer.  For me, the added value was that he is sooooo Pacific Northwest.  Had to try and buy.

So that wraps up the images from The Industry Lovesick Collection.  While it is not what I collect, I loved the vibrant color combos and nod to recent Gucci runway shows.  I also loved all the additional little details Mr Buttry added in…particularly the glasses.  I don’t know about other collectors but for THIS collector, it’s those little “value adds” that push me from a “ well I like it” to an “I have to have it”.  As a collector, it makes me so happy…as a business person, it makes sense as a business move.  All around good!

Also, it was really nice to see David bringing back some favorite characters from discontinued lines.  It shows he is listening to the collectors and that is always a good thing.

Ok, so if you are interested in any of these dolls and you are not part of the WClub and already contacted your dealers, you need to act fast.  These dolls are going quickly and some may already be sold out.  If you don’t know where to check for dealers go to the link below.

Doll Photography and Blogging: The Set

This one is the fun one…or at least I think it is.  It’s about the diorama photos and all those little details.  If set building for a photo is not your thing…this might not be your favorite episode.  For me, this is the joy of what I do…creating that story and scene.  Hope you walk away with a new idea or way to make your photos or collecting more fun and meaningful.

The Elyse Chronicles: Red Sparrow

Ok…so I couldn’t just leave this Elyse with just a Barbie makeover shot.   I also wanted to show her in a more sophisticated look than the white and black sundress she came in.  I was having some difficulty coming up with a different look for her and received some inspiration from an unlikely place…the current book I was reading.

The Elyse Chronicles: The B Word

For this installment of the Elyse Chronicles and my homage to the 10th Anniversary Jason Wu dolls, I’m using the Nordstrom’s Elyse.  This doll was an exclusive release from the upscale retailer Nordstrom. 

©2018 Inside The fashion Doll Studio- The Elyse Chronicles:The B Word

Ok come on….when the first images of this doll were released…even though many of us are Integrity Toys collectors…we all thought it…Barbie.

She looks a whole like like Miss Babs with the hairstyle and bright red lips, nails and toes.   Given that, I just had to do this next set of photos.  I just had to.

The Elyse Chronicles: La Vie en Rose

The first doll released from the Jason Wu 10th Anniversary collection was the La Vie en Bleu Elyse.  The option to purchase her was given to each 2016 Integrity Toys Convention attendee.

So in keeping with  the theme I started, since she came to us originally in an evening look, I thought to put her in a daywear look.  I looked no further than a new uber chic suit I received from Etsy designer and seller HoangAnhKhoi.

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.

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.

Love the short slicked back hairstyle and the facial screening on this one.

Poetic Beauty Enters the Studio

Things have been crazy busy at ITFDS since July.  Since the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention, I have been in production mode for the Integrity Toys convention and that left very little time for anything else…taking photos or blogging.  I need to work out a better schedule…. obviously! 

In the craziness that was August through July, there were some very high points for my collection.  One such moment was when I won the opportunity to purchase the Poetic Beauty Lilith and Eden gift set.

They are inspired, I believe, by the 2016 Pre fall Louis Vuitton collection..feel free to check out the photos in my original post about these dolls.  Eden/Lilith is one of my all time favorite face molds and the fact that this gift set was offered in this lottery made me both excited and filled with anxiety.  This was a lottery I REALLY wanted to win.  I consider myself very lucky to have succeeded in this and was able to purchase.

I adore the facial screening on these dolls and the clothing was edgy, current and perfect for these young sister characters.  The real highlight, however, in this set were the accessories.

It wasn’t the fact that you got 2 Louis Vuitton inspired purses but THE SHOES and those tasseled earrings.  The execution and attention to detail on these accessories also deserves special comment.  Really well done people…exceptional. 

And…since the name of this gift set was Poetic Beauty…I had to  pull out some Lord Byron….had to do it.

This set is one of IT’s best in my humble opinion.  I adore every aspect of it so I will let Lord Byron finish this post with,

“And all that’s best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes; “

Agnes is Merveilleuse!!

I don’t think you need a translator to realize that this says Agnes is marvelous.  For quite a while now, it has been an Integrity Toy’s WClub custom to offer up an “event doll” made available to members when they hold a webinar.  It’s a nice little perk for members and it’s 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!!

©2017 Integrity Toys Inc. Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

Yep…you 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…in it’s romantic iterations as well as it’s strength.  He ends with the power suit to end all power suits.  Let’s 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’t 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…Jordan in these honey tresses?!!…YUM!  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…Jordan has a last name now too!

There is a Fendi feel to that purse Winking smile

I love the doll on this one…let 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…well..it’s not my favorite..and not really getting a Riviera vibe either.  I adore the accessories.  The shirt with the bow detailing…love.  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’ Zorro people!!  I believe I fainted when I saw this one…then recovered quickly and put this doll as #1 on my buy list.  What do I start with…That color on Adele…brilliant!!  The scarf with the hat…inspired!  The belted suit….sublime!!  The accessories…perfection!!  The facial screening…sultry and strong….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’s definitely showcases strong and feminine but not necessarily Riviera chic.  Doesn’t change the fact that I am buying it though

Too much fashion

My poor, poor wallet!!!

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

Oh my!!  A tanned Elyse!!  Again I hope the lottery Gods are kind.  There is a high edition size on this one so that’s 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’t make in this or the previous blog post about Nu.Face was the fact that these bodies don’t 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’s Adele will be talked about for years and years.  I would also like to give Integrity Toys and it’s 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.
