Della Dazzles

Well it’s a new month and I have a new muse.  Rather..I have a couple of new muses.  First off, I received the new East 59th ladies from Integrity Toys designed by Chris Stoeckel a couple weeks back and finally had a chance to debox them.  Beautifully tailored clothing as one would expect from Mr Stoeckel.  He never disappoints.  My must have from this particular capsule collection was Miss Della Roux.  Here are the promotional photos.

The original gown pictured is based, I believe, on a 1954 Dior gown.

And I had seen another rendition in a paler color that I was inspired by…

I adored the fur cuffs on this one so I set about making some for Miss Della.  I had some trim I had acquired years ago when in NYC with friends.  We spent an afternoon shopping for embellishments and trim.  Such great memories so I was happy to be able to use this recycled fur trim I found on something.

In the Pink Nadja

What can I say…I am in a pink and Nadja mood right now.  I adore this doll and in this amazing pastel pink she just sings to me.   I don’t believe you can ever go wrong with pastel pink.  For the past year now, we have been in quarantine in my area.  We are located uncomfortably close to the first cases of the virus in the US.  We knew we had community spread early on so my husband’s workplace told everyone to work remotely from home last March.  Both of my college age kiddos also have been doing remote learning for their respective colleges for many months.  It’s a full house once again and I kinda like it.  I know it’s only temporary and will enjoy it while I can. 

While I haven’t been active on the blog, I have not been idle.  I decided last year to switch a now unused space in our home ( the kids play room) to a full time studio/craft space.  I will do a blog post on that project at a later time but the crafting space is allowing me to pursue another passion for now…miniature plants and flowers.  This love of crafting miniature plants has dovetailed rather nicely into a home re-landscaping project that has been in the planning for many years.  We finally completed the bulk of the landscape project this year and await final pieces this spring.   So, I guess what I am saying is…plants and flowers will be popping up on images for the blog. 

My mindset for the images in today’s post was Spring.  Since Jessy Ayala designed a very chic and edgy outfit with vibrant color for the original doll, I wanted to try and take her softer and more pastel for contrast.  In my mind, this is her office in Paris where she runs some kind of floral or home decorating empire.  It is springtime in Paris and you can imagine that the sunshine coming into the shot is from a set of french doors with a view of the Eiffel tower over the black ornate wrought iron balcony railing. 

I am also channeling a bit of Frida Kahlo here with the miniature hydrangeas in her hair.  Just go with it.

This scene is also full of fun little miniatures that I have worked on for the past year and some that I have purchased ( the purse and computer).  I always love to see detail photos in other people’s dioramas so I am including a couple here.

Siren Silhouette Korrine

Last year Integrity Toys released a small Fashion Royalty capsule collection called FR Maison Paris.  It consisted of two dolls and I received the second doll in the collection not too long ago.  Everything about this small collection had huge glamour factor.  Jessy Ayala indulged his creativity towards elegant pastels and classic lines for this capsule.  The results were big hits with collectors including this one.  Thanks to my trusty dealer, I managed to secure both dolls.

I think she is exceptional!  I adore the intricate details of this gown…beads down the seams of the skirt people!!  All of them!!.  This gown is pure confection .  The accessories start off with a statement cocktail ring paired with the over the top chandelier earrings and delicate clutch with butterfly clasp.  The shoes are a lovely iridescent silvery pair of stillettos with ornate metal heel (à la Ralph and Russo). 

Here is how this beauty translated through my camera lens.  I am very happy.

And sometimes…when taking images…the light reflects at just the right moment and in the exact right spot.  I realize that this effect can be done using lightroom but it is always a little bit of magic when it happens organically.  Here is the Siren herself…

For those of you interested in the behind the scenes set-up for these images, this one is for you.  I had a reflector bouncing light from the left and partly cloudy afternoon diffused light coming in from the right.  Here I am using two Replica Surface background boards in “Smoke”.

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.

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.

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.
