By Rogier’s account and that of many other attendees, this years Italian Doll Convention was amazing.  A huge “Thank You” to Rogier and Dutch Barbie World for taking us all along for the ride!!

IDC 2016–Texas Ranch Fashion Parade

Most Barbie conventions have some type of fashion show.  The Italian Doll Convention certainly followed the tradition.

The foyer of the hotel was decorated for the event.

IDC 2016 – A Magia 2000 Dinner

I am guest blogging for my friend and fellow blogger Rogier of Dutch Barbie World again.  On Friday, Rogier flew to Milan for the 2016 Italian Doll Convention.

The Convention does not officially begin until Saturday morning but a few collectors were able to enjoy a special dinner with the co-creators of Magia2000 and the hosts of the Italian Doll Convention,  Mario and Gianni.  Rogier has supplied some stellar photos and pieces of info from that dinner.

There was a lovely collection of OOAK Magia 2000 dolls done especially for the IDC and they were unveiled at the dinner.  Mario and Gianni also debuted their new fragrance!©2016 Dutch Barbie World

Poppy is in Vegas!!

And she is all grown up.  Each year the IFDC (International Fashion Doll Convention) holds a fun convention in Las Vegas.  I have never gone but I love seeing the photos of the people who do go and it sure seems like a great event.  The timing never seems to work out for me to go to this one.  Anywhoo, Integrity Toys does a number of dolls for this event and the first IT Direct exclusive for the convention was unveiled yesterday.  It was a bit of a shocker for people as Poppy has never been offered up as an event doll before.  Many Poppy Parker collectors are busy texting convention participants or scrolling through eBay listings to get a hold of this one.

Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary Collection
2014 IFDC IT DIRECT Exclusive

Issue size:  300

Evening Ingenue Poppy Parker 1

They are really pulling out the stops for Poppy’s 5th anniversary.  Apparently, she is on a hybrid body so not the regular Poppy Parker body.  She does not have the ankle joint either.  I am not sure how I feel about this very grown up version of Poppy.  I am happy though for all the attendees of IFDC to have this really exclusive issue.  Very exciting.  I love how IT is mixing things up.  You never really know what you will get at conventions these days.  It keeps us guessing and I like it.


IFDC 2013–Horror High Vegas!!!

The International Fashion Doll Convention was held this weekend in Las Vegas.  The theme was Horror High Vegas and the exclusive dolls that were offered and given at the convention did not disappoint attendees.

As has become standard with Integrity Toys and its relationship with IFDC, all of the dolls come from the Integrity Toys NU Fantasy line.  This is a realm where fantasy, drama and high couture fashion mix for an interesting and edgy look and feel.
