The Royal Tea

Ok..so this series of shots were inspired by the outfit I posted on Instagram.  As with many images, what looks good on an idea board does not translate to a model or doll.  In this case, the hat that looked good on the board did not translate well to actual model.  And…as much as I wanted to use it, the teapot did not make it into the final shots either.  Sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn’t.  The post is called “The Royal Tea” because the dog is wearing a crown .Winking smile

Here was the Instagram inspiration:

You will notice a little bit of a color cast difference between my Instagram shots and the other images I use in the blog.  The reason behind this is a difference in camera.  Most if not all of the outfit boards that I post are shot with…wait for it…my IPhone.  If I ever get around to doing my next photography installment you will learn more about that.  Suffice it to say, as good as these new phones are these days, they still have a long way to go as far as color balance.  Ok…geek photography moment over.

I am sharing snippets of the photo process on some of these posts on my instagram stories so feel free to follow that if you want.  They disappear in 24 hours so they are there and then they are gone.

I am totally in love with this doll.  She is Rare Appearance Dania Zarr from Integrity Toys.  She was a WClub exclusive for 2014.  Still one of my favorite models.  The dress is a new acquisition from the talented Gwen of Gwendolyn’s Treasures

Integrity Toys Reveals FR/FR2 for 2014

This past Saturday morning, WClub members were treated to the release of information on 4 of Integrity Toy’s product lines.  I will be sending out 4 different blog posts to give information on these lines.  If you are interested in any of these items, you should contact an Integrity Toys Dealer ASAP to secure your selection.  Many of these items are already selling out  as WClub members were allowed to order early.

First reveal up is the 2014 FR line.  This years “Safari” inspired collection was a collaboration between designers Vaughn Sawyer and Jason Wu.  This years collection focuses on the 8 core characters going forward with the new FR/FR2 concept. I would call it “Safari Chic” with some especially fine detailed accessories.  It is a strong and fairly cohesive collection. I adore the color palette used in everything.  The facial screenings are strong and sophisticated.  The accessories are amazingly detailed (check out all the patterns and stitching on the purses alone).

I adore the boots in this outfit and that bag!  I was kind of bummed I did not pick up the gorgeous Natalia at convention last year…now I get to make up for it.  One critique though…could we please see some other kind of hairstyle on poor Natalia.  The girll has had the same hairstyle for the last couple of  releases.

Holy accessories batman!  You had me at the shoes…at the shoes.  The bag is a miniature copy of the Jason Wu “Jordan” bag.  I love the soft neutral colors of this one.  I also love the new facial screenings in this collection…most evident in this Kyori.  Again, this is all about the details…and there were plenty to admire in this entire collection.  I love the cross lacing on the skirt.

I am thinking…Best…Event…Doll…Ever!  How can I pass up a redhaired updo Agnes?  I can’t. 

I.T. also announced and showed a photograph of the an IT Direct shoe pack coming out in the fall.  IT direct means lottery people.  There were four pair of fantastic shoes shown in this pack but no pictures were released outside of the video.  I.T. has asked that we not duplicate any portion of the webinar so I can’t share a photo here.  If you are WClub member, you can view the Webinar in it’s entirety on Vimeo.  Just look in your email for a message from the Wclub for the address and password.
