To Sir, With Love

This song practically screams 1965 to me and apparently many others because it is listed in the top 5 songs of 1965.  Love the movie, love the song and loved playing it while I shot these.

This outfit by Robert Best for the Silkstone Barbie line looks to be inspired by vintage 1960’s Valentino.  Beautiful and so appropriate for Ms. 1965 Poppy!  Those nails though…Yipes!!

I hope you have enjoyed this walk through the mid 1960’s with Ms. Irresistible in India Poppy Parker.  This is not a style I photograph that often so it was fun to pop in some oldies but goodies and revisit the 60’s for a bit.


So Happy Together…

My next installment of Poppy Parker was done to the music of the Turtles

This was listed as one of the top 10 songs of 1965 so very appropriate for the 1965 International Fair Poppys.

Poppy is California Dreamin’

I know I have said this before, but I will reiterate.  I always listen to music while I shoot photos.  It’s just something I have always done with doll photos.  I have two musicians in the house so if I am not playing music, it’s being played somewhere around me.  While typing this blog post, my daughter is hard at work on a violin piece called Gavotte in D Major by Bach…but I digress.  While shooting this series of photos, it seems only right that I go to the time that David Buttry used as inspiration for this his International Fair Poppy series.  When it comes to late 60’s, there is one stand out favorite for me…California Dreamin’ by the Mamas and the Papas, and that is where I went for some mood music for this next set of photos.

She is Irresistible

It’s official… “Irresistible in India Poppy Parker” is indeed…irresistible.  Okay, so I freely admit to playing Desi Girl while opening this one up.  If you have not had the pleasure of hearing this Bollywood favorite, I recommend it( it’s at the bottom of this post).  I waited for the sun to rise this morning, then it was up to the doll room and out came the camera.  I did an entire series on this fabulous new Poppy with a nod to the time Mr Buttry has given us as his inspiration…1965.  I will be posting a new set of photos every day for the next couple of days.

Her intricate hair style is sooooo late 1960’s.  Absolutely fabulous!!

Poppy Parker At The 1965 International Fair!

This past Saturday marked another goodie filled webinar from the talented folks at Integrity Toys.  At this event,  David Buttry unveiled a 5 doll Poppy Parker collection that evoked a “Dolls of the World” feel.  While I am not necessarily a dolls of the world collector in Barbieland…in Poppyland, stamp my passport and call me a happy camper.  You will see why. Smile

Holy Sonja Henie Batman!!  She has flippin’ ice skates??!!  I think this was the first words that flew out of my mouth when I saw her photo…” Look at the ice skates!!”.  I ADORE THEM!   She has the Japan skin tone and shares, according to Mr. Buttry, the facial screening of Photo Fab.  The fact that she is a redhead and all the exquisite details on this one ( flippin’ pom poms on the hat I tell you…pom poms!!) Sweet in Switzerland will be sweeter in the doll room come June.

Somebody bring me a Mai Tai!!  I have to say I am absolutely thrilled with this one.  My family and I vacation in Hawaii every other year and Miss Poppy looks like she would be right at home on the beaches of Kauai…right down to the flower in her ear which is appropriately placed over her right ear to signify she is single.  The sarong is removable to show a fun one piece underneath.  Lots of pieces to mix and match on this one.  The beaded necklace is, according to the webinar, one of the most intricate they have done.  Poppy is sporting original Poppy Parker facial screening here with applied lashes.  She has sweet and sultry brown eyes that have not been done before according to Mr. Buttry.  She has the same skin tone as Hot Dots…so a bit of a tan…as one would expect in the tropics.

Traveling west across the international date line, we end our international Poppy journey in…Japan.

Wowzers!  The facial screening on this lovely lady is new for this year just like Miss Spain.  She has..of course..the Japan skin tone and a stunning pair of violet eyes.  Joyful in Japan..not as joyful as I will be when June gets here and all these Poppy’s arrive.  It will be Christmas in June for sure inside the fashion doll studio.

As a whole, I have to say I am very happy with this Poppy offering from Mr. Buttry and Integrity.  I am most happy with the low price point on these beauties and the higher edition size that will hopefully allow most if not all who want these a chance at them.  Given that, if you are interested in any of these, you should contact a dealer ASAP.  The supply of these dolls will not last long.

**I was just informed by my fabulous dealer Barb that she has some Joyful in Japan left so feel free to contact her through http://www.windycitydolls.com/**
