Pre Convention Report Photo Shoot

I am the worst procrastinator…I really am.  I have been sitting down to do post convention reports for the past week and somehow…I just get going on another project.  I have no idea why I do this because the convention was AWESOME and all the reports will be fun.  All I know is that today…when I had every intention of sitting down to do the convention write-up, I decided to do a photo shoot.  Hopefully this posting will clear the logjam of post convention information gathering in my head and clear the way for future posts. 

I recently took receipt of some amazing OOAK repaints by the amazing artist Jon Copeland (selojspa).  I loved the Mood Changer Poppy Parker set we received through the WClub but wanted to see what Jon could do with the brunette and lavender haired heads.  What I received blew my mind.  Here is Miss brunette mood changer Poppy Parker enhanced by Jon.

Model:  Brunette Mood Changer Poppy Parker

Outfit , Shoes and Jewelry:  On Set ( gift fashion from 2015 I.T. Cinematic Convention)

Note** Miss Poppy has been upgraded to an FR2 body for these shots.**

Reigning Grace Revealed!

Back in April, Integrity Toys broke with tradition and released a sketch of a doll that was purportedly an indication of the theme for this year’s convention.  See original blog post here.

I admit…I was one of those that paid attention more to the sketch than the reference to the movie on this one.  I was thinking Eugenia was going to be brunette.   Well “Duh” Rebecca…the actress this design was channeling was Grace Kelly!  Grace, is blonde.  Guess I should have known.  Other than the fact that this is the third blonde in a black dress from IT this month, I LOVE her.  Even though I am kind of disappointed in the blonde version ( would have preferred raven on this one), I am still buying.  I will immediately switch out the silver necklace for pearls but the dress is out of the park gorgeous. 

No information was released about skin tone on this one but she looks to be either Japan or Cream to me.  Will have to wait and see.


Dusk Falls at Integrity Toys

For the past couple of years, Integrity Toys has sponsored a contest during their annual convention.  It is a fashion design challenge.  The judges for the competition are Jason Wu and his design team from Integrity Toys.   The person who wins the competition has their design produced by Integrity Toys and it is offered up for sale in the following years collection.  Pretty cool right?  This past years convention design competition winner was Julia Leroy a very talented designer and photographer.  She holds a masters in design so it is no surprise that she would bring those skills into her collecting.  A most excellent design Julia!!!  Thank you so much for sharing your designing talent and creativity with the collecting community.
