Decking the Halls with Paintbox Designs

One of my favorite things about being part of the collecting community is discovering amazing OOAK fashions for our diminutive divas.   This past June, Pam Seeman of Paintbox Designs brought her fabulous fashions to the National Barbie Convention for the first time.  I think it is fair to say she and her fashions were a huge hit.  Paintbox Designs has been a fixture at Fashion Royalty convention but this year was the first time we had the pleasure of seeing and purchasing her fashions for Ms. Barbie.  I must have spent a good thirty minutes at her table…along with a whole host of other shoppers and walked away with some beautiful OOAK outfits.  I adore the floaty rose fabric she used for the skirt of Dasha’s dress.  Loni’s dress is one of her signature designs and it never disappoints.  I must have this design in at least three different colors.  You can find Pam and Paintbox Designs at

Tropicalia Visits the Studio

The convention collection, convention doll and gift set doll are en route to Inside The Fashion Doll Studio but in the mean time…I did have a few dolls that came home with me and I was itching to pull out the camera and try out something the very talented photographer Deron Daniels shared with me at convention.

Tropicalia–Day 2.02

Wow!  How did it get to be 3:30PM already?!!  Time has traveled at warp speed for me today.  I attended a very informative repaint workshop done by Cindy Lorimer .   She was a very good speaker and was very organized so I feel like I learned a fair bit.  Right after the workshop, I decided to reshoot some of the collection dolls ( photos on my flickr) and then it was on to the Poppy Parker Luncheon. 


Here is the doll that graced the center of each table.  “Sea Breeze” Poppy Parker



Dag!!  I already won my right to purchase so I was out of luck for this Poppy.  Half of the table got one of these lovelies and it was really fantastic to see the large group of Poppy lovers at our table have the opportunity to take these home.  Happy people all the way around Smile.  David Butry took the opportunity to tell us about his inspiration for upcoming Poppy parker design and it is…. 1964-1965 World’s Fair.  How fun!!




Can’t wait to see what Integrity anf Mr. Butry has in store for Poppy and us next year!  David Butry also shared that Poppy will have a new friend.  Her name is Loni Lawrence and yes…we ALL received one.  She is soooooo adorable!
