Since I am getting back into the swing of things blog wise again, I thought it was well past time to do a Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi. In the past couple of years, I have been approached a few times to submit photos to publishers to help them pitch a book for production. I was approached last year to submit some photos for a book being considered to highlight James Bogue’s work. While the book idea may have not come to fruition this time around, James’ inspiring work is most definitely worthy of it. Here were some of my submissions.
James sells his fashions on his Etsy site at Bogues Vogues originals.
I was not one of the lucky ones to win her in the W Club lottery and was one of the ones who tried and failed to purchase one of the 50 or so sets available through Dolls Magazine. Yes….I survived that day which has become known as “Poppygate”. For those of you who don’t know the story, let it suffice to say that there was a huge demand and very little supply…never makes for a good ending. With great anticipation, the offering started…with great dissappointment and massive system failure due to overwhelming demand…the offering ended. Those who were quick enough to email Dolls Magazine were rewarded with the highly sought after sets. I am thrilled to see that Poppy Parker has such a fan base. That means that she will be around a while and David Butry, the Integrity designer responsible for her, will hopefully be afforded the opportunity to continue designing this adorable character. I have loved this girl since her first iteration and I continue to love the designs coming out.
All that being said, I had given up hope that I would be able to find this very sought after set for an affordable price. Through the help of another collector, I was able to find one today and am so excited to photograph her! She should be arriving in a couple of weeks.
