Recklessness in the Studio!

I received the lovely dolls I ordered from the “Reckless” collection from my fabulous Integrity Toy’s dealer  this past week and I have to say…I am not disappointed at all.  The facial screenings are delightful and the fashions and accessories exceed expectations on most levels.  My only complaint is that the choker necklaces on both Ayumi and Erin needed to have adjustments.  On mine at least the choker was too tight a fit and I ended up adding another bigger jump ring so it would close around the neck.  I know some people are just popping the heads off and putting the necklace on but that seemed like too much work to me given how often I redress these models…so the jump ring was a good solution for me.

The braids were a surprise to me and apparently a lot of other collectors.  They didn’t show these in the promo shots so I made sure to showcase them in these pictures.  Definitely a Moschino influence with the burned edge bow.

Jessy Ayala did a marvelous job with the modern day “Clueless” inspired collection.  It’s young, its hip, it’s edgy and it also manages to be fun.  I am looking forward to photographing different looks.

I also ordered the Erin but did not get individual shots of her so I went ahead and did a group shot of the girls I did order.  I will be adding Lilith and hope upon all hope that I can add the Eden to.  Please shine down on me oh Lottery Gods.

And…because, as Jessy explained to us at the last IT convention, this collection was inspired by the movie Clueless…I just had to do this.

Ok, so each year at Integrity Toys convention there are design competitions.  The person who wins the judges award for the advanced design competition at the convention has the option of having their design actually produced.  Integrity Toys started doing this a couple of years ago as a perk to entering the design competition.  This past year, the winner of this award was Jason Kramer.  His design was a combination of street grunge and haute couture.  Not easy to do folks but he managed to meld it into a cohesive and stylish design.  Interesting to note…this was Jason’s first Integrity Toys convention.  This is not, however, his first foray into designing.  He is Artistic Director and Lead Designer at a costume design company that specializes in custom made dance wear.  Jason, we are so glad you came to your first convention!!  We hope you return!

My reaction?…

Oh yes again!!!  My poor, poor wallet is toast but Stefan and I are happy.  How amazing is this Imogen?!  Love the smoky eye and beautiful slightly tan Hungarian skin stone.  It’s so edgy chic!!  Perfect for the newly revamped and emerging Nu.Face line.

It looks like the Nu.Face team is going back to Balmain for inspiration here and can I just say…good call on NOT doing the ruffled pants.  Looks like there may be some Alexander MCQueen going on as well with all the skulls.
