Recklessness in the Studio!

I received the lovely dolls I ordered from the “Reckless” collection from my fabulous Integrity Toy’s dealer  this past week and I have to say…I am not disappointed at all.  The facial screenings are delightful and the fashions and accessories exceed expectations on most levels.  My only complaint is that the choker necklaces on both Ayumi and Erin needed to have adjustments.  On mine at least the choker was too tight a fit and I ended up adding another bigger jump ring so it would close around the neck.  I know some people are just popping the heads off and putting the necklace on but that seemed like too much work to me given how often I redress these models…so the jump ring was a good solution for me.

The braids were a surprise to me and apparently a lot of other collectors.  They didn’t show these in the promo shots so I made sure to showcase them in these pictures.  Definitely a Moschino influence with the burned edge bow.

Jessy Ayala did a marvelous job with the modern day “Clueless” inspired collection.  It’s young, its hip, it’s edgy and it also manages to be fun.  I am looking forward to photographing different looks.

I also ordered the Erin but did not get individual shots of her so I went ahead and did a group shot of the girls I did order.  I will be adding Lilith and hope upon all hope that I can add the Eden to.  Please shine down on me oh Lottery Gods.

And…because, as Jessy explained to us at the last IT convention, this collection was inspired by the movie Clueless…I just had to do this.

Reckless Smoke and Mirrors

No…I’m not doing a current political climate op-ed.  WClub members woke up to some much anticipated and exciting news.  The highly anticipated lottery for Trouble Eden was announced.   That alone would have people anxious and excited.

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc. Trouble Eden

This was to be the final installment of the NU.Face™ Reckless collection….or so we thought.   Integrity Toys and the WClub kicked up the heat however with their lottery announcement by adding the mother of all ginsu cutting knife moments.

But Wait There’s  More!!

Many collectors were lamenting the fact that this Eden would be a lottery.  It appears that the WClub was listening because they offered up a consolation prize to beat all consolation prizes for lovers of the twins.  Yep…you guessed it, the WClub members were given the option to purchase ( purchase not another lottery!) a companion Lilith doll to this Eden…and she has left this collector with her jaw on the floor.

Integrity Toy’s “The Industry” 2017 Revealed

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc

Integrity Toy’s made their first collection reveal to the newly minted 2017 WClub the other day and all I can say is Wow!  it’s a doozy!  As Dolce and Gabbana and many other designers are going to the so called millennials for inspiration and a new ad campaigns, David Buttry appears to be pulling from the same pool…at least with the fashions and accessories.

Millennials = consisting of individuals born between 1982 and 2004.

There have been a lot of positives and negatives written about Millennials.  I will stick with the positive.  It has been noted that they grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially-networked world.  This helps to explain some of the many new and fabulous accessories that come with this collection.  Hope you enjoy. 

Keep in mind that these offerings are available through Integrity Toys dealers and were announced to the WClub a few days a go.  If you want any of these …run don’t walk to try and get these.  Some may be sold out already.

Talk about updated hair!  This one is an early favorite for many collectors.  She comes with sandals and boots and while I love the accessories, I am not loving the dress on this one.  It seems way too dowdy for this doll.  She needs edgy and hip in my opinion not docile little school girl.  The doll though with half flocked and half pink tresses…fabulousness!  **note** This doll is articulated at the ankle. The other dolls are not.

These accessories!!!  A MUST have.  As to the question…”Will Rebecca buy a doll just for the accessories?”.  Well…yes she will.  I do also like the look of this doll but he is very similar to the Ace McFly doll they produced a couple of conventions ago.  I’m still getting him though as the girls and guys in my collection need their makeup artist .Winking smile

David Buttry and his team did an amazing job with this first full scale ‘The Industry” collection.  The accessories alone make this capsule collection worth a look-see.  My only complaint is that…there is a WHOLE lot of black going on here.  It would be nice to see more color coming in.  And also on the subject of black, there was also an absence of it…as in skin tone.  I would have liked to have seen an AA model in this lineup.  There are, however, a whole lot of mix and match pieces that will be fun to pair with other outfits in my collection and I look forward to being the mini stylist with those and sharing on the blog.  I can definitely see my Out of Sight Nadja in many of these outfits.

Again…these dolls are available through Integrity Toys dealers only.  Feel free to click on the link to find them.

2017 WClub Registration Begins!!

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc

While some other clubs {cough…BFC…cough} have deferred  their opening, Integrity Toys has just announced open enrollment for their 2017 WClub.  Integrity Toys never fails to pull out the goodies for their WClub and this year is no exception. 

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc

Let’s start with the upgrade dolls!  There are three this year and if you sign up for all three…there is a gift involved!!

So…this year Integrity Toys and the WClub did things a little differently.  They basically polled the 2016 WClub members to see what face mold, skin tone and hair color combination they would like to see in a club upgrade doll.  They gave members a little over 2 weeks to vote and here are the results.

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc Riviera Drama Agnes

It would appear that the majority of members voted for a cream skin toned, raven haired Agnes.  This was actually my vote so I’m kind of stoked to see the actual product.  I have to admit…I am a little nervous about ordering a doll that I have only seen a sketch of but it is what I voted for so I’m in.

As David Buttry told us at the last IT convention, Poppy is headed to London in the 60’s.  This lady certainly embodies that!  I love that she has this lovely brown hair.  While the 60’s are not a time period that I like to collect fashion wise, I can still appreciate the design and aesthetics of this Poppy.  Love her white gloved hands and jaunty hat.  Thumbs up David!

Oh…my…Word!!!  You had me at the Fabergé egg purse people!!!  Don’t even get me started on the shoes.  Modern day spats is what I am seeing…and me likes.  I love this look.  It is feminine and modern at the same time.  I love that the Integrity team has found fabrics and trims that fit in so beautifully in this scale.
