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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Coquettish in the Sunshine

The first release from Integrity Toy’s 2017 Fashion Royalty La Femme collection has entered The Fashion Doll Studio!  I really didn’t think I was going to be able to do any shots in the natural sunshine today as we have smoky haze( welcome to the Pacific Northwest and all of it’s summer forest fires) but it has turned the light this really cool pinkish red so I thought      “ why not!”  Keep in mind that these shots are done through a pinkish red filter which gives Jordan’s skin a rosier hue than normal.

Love this mocha skin tone and the honey blond tresses on this lady.  One of the softest Jordan’s I have seen in a while.  The clothing is on trend and the quality is good.  the fabric is nice and supple as well as the pants.  The bustier has a nice leather feel and fits well.  The real stars of this show are the accessories though.

Meet You at East 59th!

Wow!!  Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say of Integrity Toys newest product line.  For those of us who have been waiting for the return of our beloved Victoire Roux…the waiting just got a little sweeter.  While we did not get a new Victoire, we did receive some of her friends and this new world that IT has created looks to be amazing!  The director of this yumminess is the uber talented Chris Stoeckel.  While we did not get Victoire in this new release, we did get word that she is coming.  {That sound in the background is Rebecca squealing with happiness}.  The story behind this line is 1950’s Hollywood and a possible feud between competing divas..I’m thinking Joan Crawford/Betty Davis.  With all that drama, you need killer fashions and who better to do that than Chris.  We have loved his 1950s inspired couture in the Victoires of the past.  It looks like his future designs will take us to a whole other level.  Soooooo excited!

{FAINT!!!}  Oh…my…word.  I am traveling as I write this blog post and I was sitting at a restaurant yesterday morning when these pictures came into the WClub members inboxes.  I am absolutely sure I embarassed myself when I squealed with delight on this one.  Where to start with the love…..hmmmm.  Ok, first is the color combinations.  Adore this red and black with the raven hair.  New face sculpt on these characters and I love them.  I don’t advocate smoking ( Constance..you need to rethink that one) but the props are so appropriate for the 1950’s.  It’s the attention to detail and the playability that I love the most I think.  Chris has given us two separate looks on every doll.  Bonus!!!  Love it!!!

{FAINT…AGAIN}.  Chris, next time give us collectors some warning before you unleash this kind of gorgeousness on us  My heart cant take it Winking smile

A redhead in electric blue!  Adore.  Love, love, love the silhouette on the gown.  Also love the embroidered pants look.  the accessories are spot on…except…for the plastic shoes.  Nope…no at this pricepoint people  I am hoping IT rethinks this one.  I and many collectors concur…this is a misplaced note in the middle of a beautiful symphony.  Apparently Evelyn likes the makeup because she comes with a full set.  Adorable!  Head to ankle gorgeous…plastic shoes need an upgrade.

{Rebecca now has a concussion from fainting}

OK, so this might be my favorite.  The two separate looks are to die for..evening to day perfection.  The accessories are spot on.  I adore the floral headpiece.  The plastic shoes have to go but everything else is a huge thumbs up.  Also adore the facial screening on her.

{Rebecca is now on her way to hospital…too many faints and now has concussion}

Cocktails indeed!  I know I will need a few after this collection to lament my poor, poor wallet.  I have a think for well tailored suits.  This one is perfection  I love both sets of gloves with these looks  The driving gloves in particular!  Simple jewelry is perfect here as the suit s the star.  The shoes..oh why oh why with the plastic.  I’m sound like a broken record…I know.  The facial screening on her is my least favorite of this collection but not a deal breaker.  I’m still buying. 

The big questions from me and many collectors is…what is the body on this lady?  Is it FR2, Victoire…enquiring minds want to know.  I am sure we will get answers soon.  At the time this goes to print there will be a live chat with the designer Chris Stoeckel.  I am sure he will give us this info. 

I hate the write and run but I am on he road driving a bunch of orchestra instruments and luggage back from L.A.  Will hopefully have more information to share with you tomorrow.

If you want to purchase these beauties find your local Integrity Toys Authorized Dealer  I would run not walk as many of these have already sold out to WClub members.

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

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.

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.

You have to love these giftsets and check out the dual stand!!  I have not seen that before.    I am completely digging the case with this one too.  Very chic and elegant.  I adore the sleek platinum blond ponytails and red, red lips.  I am also a big fan of the cream skin tone and it looks like Agnes has it for this set.  Hope to see these girls sometime before the end of the year.  Integrity Toys thanked Jason and Vaughn for this offering in their release email .  This collector thanks them too!

And…because we have sisters for the giftset…just had to add this, sorry, couldn’t help myself.

 

Get ready folks…Poppy Parker “right to buy” lotteries will be right around the corner!

Procrastination and … a Poppy Parker

So, I may not be the queen of procrastination but I believe I would be voted onto the court of princesses of procrastination.  I kind of like the sound of that…”Princess of Procrastination”.  Anywhoo, I am supposed to be finishing up my presentation for this years NBDCC.  I am supposed to be putting the finishing touches on it, wrapping it up and putting it to bed so I can start getting packed for the flight I am taking in a little over 36 hours from now.  Am I doing any of that?  Noooooooo.  Instead, today I received a couple new Poppy Parker’s and I am playing instead.  Guess this means I am finishing up the presentation on the airplane.

Love the lavender eyes!!  Everything about this set that was promised…was delivered.  She is adorable and the little poodle is to die for.  Well done David!!  I will have to come up with a suitable Paris themed set when I get back from convention.

Now…back to the presentation.  If you are attending the NBDCC and are interested in learning more about the photography that I do here on the blog, I will be presenting on Thursday, July 28th at 5 pm in one of the Riverfront rooms at the Hyatt Jacksonville.  The time had to be changed from original schedule due to scheduling conflicts.

And yes people…this silkstone’s shoes will fit the Nu.Face model here….barely but it works.  I am still trying to figure out if I like the swirl curl bang thing on her forehead.  Winking smile

Agnes at the Palazzo

For those of you following my Instagram, you have seen a little taste of this shoot.  If you don’t follow, here is a little backstory.  It all started with this amazing dress which I found on Etsy by the talented duo AquatalisBoutique .  You may have seen some of their work over on Rogier’s Blog this week.  It took a while for this gown to get to me because the first one was lost in the vast quagmire of  postal services between Vietnam and my home.  Aquatalis was great about it and after we waited a reasonable time without the dress showing up, they promptly made and mailed another one.  Excellent customer service and kept me informed the whole time.  When I saw this gown I immediately thought of Dolce & Gabbana and their 2012 and 2013 collections.  Such vibrant color and opulence. I needed an appropriate backdrop.  Nothing I had was doing it for me.  So….time for a new one and I went to the Dutch still life masters to find inspiration.  I had seen a wall covering recently that I was obsessed with and wanted to do something similar…this set was what came from all that brainstorming.

The headdress is the necklace from Fiorella Silkstone Barbie.  The flowers have been digitally altered to match the dress.

Collectors Welcome “The Industry”

At last years IT convention, David Buttry revealed a new product line of dolls called “The Industry”.  This product line is 1/6 Tullabelle.  I am so excited about this line because I have always loved Tullabelle but don’t collect the the larger scale dolls.  Now I can get that look in the scale that I do collect.  Integrity Toys explained that this line will be  “a lighthearted street-influenced collection with a mix of vintage and new. “  It was also stated that this Tullabelle will have friends later on this year too so we will be seeing more.  Can’t wait!

This 12 inch Tullabelle is “the debut of a brand new, ultra-versatile body sculpt”.  She is 12 1/4 inches tall and smaller busted like Nu.Face.  IT has stated that there are new removable bottom leg portions on this doll that will enable collectors to change them out so the models can wear flat shoes as opposed to heels.  Nice!  It was also mentioned that this lady may..in fact…be able to wear Barbie shoes as well.  Love it!  She is available for preorder through Integrity Toys dealers.

The boots!!!  The boots!!!  I also love the ash blond hair.  While most of my collection is vintage couture based, I am looking forward to exploring this product line and am purchasing this doll.  I also think it’s fun that David Buttry gets to expand his design repertoire with this product line.  I adore his Poppy Parker designs and I am sure I will enjoy this new collection as well.  I also really like the fact that Integrity Toys is listening to their customers and continues to give more flexibility and options for the redressing collector community.
