Tulip Festival!

There is a tulip festival about to happen over at Bellissima Couture.  As many of you know, Hilda Westervelt( Bellissima Couture) and I are good friends and frequently collaborate on projects together.  I met Hilda through this wonderful world of collecting and I am so thankful every day for that friendship.  That’s why when we get to work together on something, it becomes extra special. 

Recently, Hilda and I worked on developing a set of fabrics for some of her divine fashions.  I came up with a tulip fabric that Hilda then helped me tweak to bring it into better scale with her fashions.  This is how the collaboration turned out.  I love working with my amazingly talented friends!

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.

For those of you out there that read this blog and are not currently enrolled in the WClub ( why not?!!)…and you have an interest in joining, here is what you need to know.

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.

I felt like I needed an opulent set to go with this amazing dress from Rimdoll.  It is a wonderful interpretation of the Dior Robe Mexique from 1951.

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.

Poppy Breaks Out

Hello intrepid followers.  It feels like every time I try to get to the blog something blocks the path.  For the past month and a half it’s been mother nature and a pesky furnace that just doesn’t want to get with the program.  While snow is beautiful and it turns the studio into one big snow globe…it it isn’t heated, its no fun to be in there.  After some very stern language and a good furnace doctor…we are back in business in the studio. 

I took delivery of some new backgrounds recently for another product photography project and realized they work really well for doll photography as well.  The company is called Replica Surfaces.  They are kind of pricey for doll photography but might be worth the investment if you want easy to set up and sturdy.  I am not being compensated at all for this plug.  Just passing on information on a product that I have enjoyed using.

New doll in the studio!!  I recently received Rendez Vous in Rio Poppy Parker from the Mission to Brazil Poppy Parker collection.  The second I got her, I saw her in green.  I had recently seen a stunning Vanity Fair cover of Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o

And I was inspired by a dress by Rimdoll on Etsy.  Here is the product of that inspiration and a newly warm studio.

And because I was having fun with Photoshop, I decided to do some color variations including an early Valentines Day image.  Hope you enjoy.

Thank you all for you patience!  Looking forward to warmer days and a better relationship with my furnace.  I guess you could say we are currently in therapy .Winking smile

I really wished they had showed the back view of her hair.  It looks like a french twist….I am guessing though.  If it is…divine!!

Holy hand grenades people!!!  The dress has pockets!!!  {no judgment for the Monty Python reference either please LOL!}

Not sure what the Pre Fall 2016 name is all about.  After scouring the released photos of his prefall 2016 line I could find no reference to this design.  Some super sleuths over at the WClub forums did find this though…

Kate Bosworth in Jason Wu at a red carpet in 2016.  This definitely appears to be the inspiration.  Doesn’t appear to have ever been produced  except as this one off.  Very pretty on Ms. Bosworth and beautiful on Elyse as well.  Well played Mr. Wu!!!

For you WClub members who want to try for this one, your deadline is January 6th, 2020 at noon EST.

Well Hello Miss Ginger!!

The WClub just announced it’s 5th and final club doll for the year and it was an amazing way to end Poppy Parker’s 10th anniversary year.  David Buttry finally released his much anticipated friend ( or is it frenemy) Ginger Gilroy.  He did it in the best way possible…giftsetted with a Poppy.

Miss Gilroy is scrumptious!!!  A fitting frenemy to our beloved Poppy.  I can’t wait to see what David comes up with for her.  I adore the colors and fashions he chose!  While I have never been a huge fan of a bubble dress or gown, I adore the light blue confection that Ginger has.  The beautiful lavender that adorns Poppy will be welcome when they arrive in the spring of 2020.

I adore the lavishness of the accessories too.  I like that we now have 2 pairs of white hands and long gloves that we can mix and match with our other Poppy’s.  I also appreciated that David gave us two different kinds of wraps…one satin and one fur.  Made for a nice change.  I am loving the spring pastels as well.  This was indeed a fitting way to end out Poppy’s 10th anniversary year.  Well done Mr.Buttry!!

If you are not a WClub member(why not?!), you will not have direct access to this gift set.  It’s a WClub exclusive.  You will need to wait and watch on Ebay next spring.  And if you are not a WClub member…you might want to consider membership which will come up again in February of 2020.  Watch the blog for details.

Mademoiselle Eden Wows the Crowd

Integrity Toys’ WClub released information on their 4th out of 5 club dolls and the general consensus is WOW!   It’s a good wow not a bad one…at least in my view.  I know that many collectors don’t go for different colored hair.  I know that for the most part, I don’t either.  That being said, I am crazy for this lady.  The talented Jessy Ayala has given us a Rococo inspired pastel infused piece of pure femininity.  Jessy chose the perfect model for his creation in the sweeter than sweet Eden ( a personal fav).  She will be a perfect sister to the epic crowd pleaser Public Adoration Eden which was given as a gift to convention attendees at the WClub luncheon in 2018.  Click on the picture to get more info from Integrity Toys website.

This one is a WClub exclusive and only available to WClub members.  If you are not a WClub member (why not??), you will need to wait for this beauty to pop up on Ebay sometime in the spring or start currying favor with one of your WClub friends with multiple memberships. 

And…one other piece of information to share.  It has been noted on the ever rich and vibrant WClub forum that the item number on this beauty has a letter after the number.  This may or may not mean there is a variant of this doll coming in the future.  Dare we hope for her twin sister Lilith to show up with a different and possibly darker color variation?  Ohhhhh…I hope so!!!
