The Millennial Chanel

Many fashion collections are targeting the rich pocket of the Millennial generation right now.  I was interested in styling one of the most recent NuFace girls to embody that plus stay true to the original theme of IT and Jessy Ayala’s Reckless collection…the movie “Clueless”.  It all started with this fabulous jacket from the Etsy shop ElenPriv.  It continued with the amazing necklace from Etsy shop IsabelleParisJewels.  The rest just came into place after that.

Ayumi is a Total Betty

The actual name for this doll is Totally Betty Ayumi.  If you have never watched the movie Clueless you may have missed the meaning of the reference.  Per the Online Slang Dictionary, the definition of Betty is

noun
  • an attractive female; "hottie". 

Oddly enough, the citation for this definition is the movie Clueless.   Well..whether or not the movie coined this term and it’s meaning, this Ayumi is definitely a stunner.  The outfit she came in was perfect for the urban and hip look.  My collection runs more towards the elegant and sophisticated so I wanted to transform this current Ayumi with an outfit I had recently received.  I suspected she would fit into “elegant and sophisticated” without a problem….and I was right.  This also gave me a chance to use one of the amazing screens I recently picked up on Etsy.

Model and jewelry:  Totally Betty Ayumi

Shoes: FR2 shoe pack

Suit and faux fur: HOANG ANH KHOI on Etsy

Screen: Customdollhouse on Etsy

Tulips:  Available soon at ITFDS

I absolutely adore the soft facial screening on her!!  A number of collectors have said she bears a striking resemblance to Chrissy Teigan.  I can totally see that!

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.

Reckless Smoke and Mirrors

No…I’m not doing a current political climate op-ed.  WClub members woke up to some much anticipated and exciting news.  The highly anticipated lottery for Trouble Eden was announced.   That alone would have people anxious and excited.

This was to be the final installment of the NU.Face™ Reckless collection….or so we thought.   Integrity Toys and the WClub kicked up the heat however with their lottery announcement by adding the mother of all ginsu cutting knife moments.

But Wait There’s  More!!

Many collectors were lamenting the fact that this Eden would be a lottery.  It appears that the WClub was listening because they offered up a consolation prize to beat all consolation prizes for lovers of the twins.  Yep…you guessed it, the WClub members were given the option to purchase ( purchase not another lottery!) a companion Lilith doll to this Eden…and she has left this collector with her jaw on the floor.

It’s Party Time

Everyone in the fashion world has their eyes turned toward Paris right now for the culmination of the 2017 Spring Summer Ready to Wear shows and I thought, “what does one do at the end of fashion week?”.  If it were me, I would want to celebrate so that is the inspiration behind this group of photos.  Well…that and a killer sparkle dress from Rimdoll. 

Here is the mood board I posted on Instagram.

Dress:  Rimdoll on Etsy

Shoes:  Integrity Toys Cold shoulder Eugenia

Earrings:  Integrity Toys Fabulous Fields Luchia

Glassware:  Facets by Marcia

Fur Wrap:  Pottery Barn wine bottle adornment ( yes!!  seriously!!  I know right?!)

Champagne bottle:  origins of which are lost in the quagmire of my mind….

There was another item besides the gown that I was inspired by.  Those of us who attended last years Integrity Toys convention were a bit hmmmm…lets just say underwhelmed by the convention doll last year.  Her name was ‘Making an Entrance’ Karolin Stone and she was a severe looking lady with a major broad forehead.  Not the most attractive look in my opinion. 

©2015 Integrity Toys, Inc.

I really liked her facial screening but I was all ready to sell this one when I saw an image of a restyled Karolin on Rimdoll’s Etsy site.  I decided to change course and see if I could soften her look a bit.  Here is what I ended up with and I have to say…I am very happy Winking smile

She still has the wide forehead but at least it’s softened up by the roll of bangs.

Defiant Rayna

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!

Eden Wears It Better

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I picked up this glorious gown at the last IT convention and have been waiting for the right lady to wear it.  It is a power house of a gown so who better than “Power House Ayumi” to wear it.

tumblr_lkjxss9eTr1qba78m

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.

I don’t know about other WClubbers but this one is a happy, happy camper…one soon to be very poor happy, happy camper.

Integrity Toys 2015 Convention “Cinematic” Part II–Convention Exclusives

Let me start out by defining “convention exclusives”.  Convention exclusives are dolls or items that are available for purchase only to convention attendees.  These are not the freebies or gifts given to attendees these are simply items that were available for purchase to convention attendees.  I am not including the Grace Kelly Eugenia in this list because she was available to WClub members.   This was the first year that Integrity Toys gave this option ( and a good one in my opinion) so we have a whole other category of “convention exclusives available to WClub”.  The groups of dolls  that fall into this category are

1) I.T. Sales room exclusives

2) Centerpiece dolls

3) Workshop dolls

4) WClub luncheon and Welcome cocktail dolls

I.T. Sales Room Exclusives

Well hello Elizabeth Taylor!!  That was the general consensus of the inspiration for this beauty.  Perhaps one of her Butterfield 8 outfits was the clothing inspiration for this one.  That would be my guess as it has an obvious nod to a lingerie look.  Loved this look and the hairstyle on the Kyori is to die for.  The shoes on this one have a weird fit to them…as in they almost don’t fit.  As long as she is standing stationary, no problem but if you pick this one up and off the stand…look for the shoes on the floor.  Other than that, this ones fabulousElizabeth Taylor in Cat on a hot tin Roof

I am not sure of the “cinematic” tie in on this one other than it looks like something a current starlet would wear to a movie premier.  The shoes and accessories are to die for.  That purse!! This is a perfect look for the NuFace line.  Edgy, modern and chic.  Don’t know if I will be keeping the doll but I certainly have plans for the fashion and accessories.

I am rapidly becoming a big fan of the Dominique face mold.  This one has absolute attitude and even though she does not fit in with what I normally collect…I purchased.  She is just so…well…bad ass.  The body suit will be sold or repurposed.  This Dominique is destined for a queen of the board room photo shoot.

Poppy stuck with Valley of the Dolls for this convention.  Not a bad place to be either.  This is a titian haired Poppy with an animal print coat.  Umm…no brainer…she was in my shopping cart with the Marilyn Monroe Vanessa ( another animal print couture item) first.  Thank you David!!

Was not into this one.  Can’t give you any specific reason why but he just didn’t speak to me at convention and as I am looking at these pictures again…Nope…still not speaking to me.

 Centerpiece Dolls:

The convention has 2 evening meal events and one luncheon event plus an extra WClub luncheon if you purchase a ticket.  For each of these meal events there is a centerpiece doll.  Typically 5-7 people get the opportunity to purchase a centerpiece doll.  They are highly collectible because their issue numbers are very low.  Here are the centerpiece dolls for this year

Some were thinking ( and I would include myself in this group) this did not have the “Wow” factor that many have come to expect from centerpiece dolls of the past.  I did not get a clear “cinematic” vibe from this one.  It was the first event centerpiece too so as far as pacing of the events, it gave off a ho hum feel.  You want to start the first event off with a bang…you know…get people excited about the convention.  This one didn’t do it in my opinion.  It made me feel like Chanel fashion club luncheon.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Chanel and I adored this fashion and doll…just not as a centerpiece.  I did purchase this one as my number was selected.  I am not sure if she is a keeper for me though.

I never seem to win the right to purchase the Poppy parker centerpiece…it’s my lot in life and I accept it.  This year however, I had some dear friends who helped me out and I was able to purchase this beauty.  (Thank you Cynthia and Marcello {Hugs})

The WClub luncheon is a little different than other centerpieces.  For the past couple of years, the centerpiece at the WClub luncheon is available for everyone at the table to purchase.  I like this idea because it is a nice perk for the WClub members.

Clearly we have an homage to the “Blonde bombshell” herself Jean Harlow.

Loved the classic platinum tresses, dramatic eyeliner and bold red lips on this one.  This centerpiece would also have been an amazing choice as the convention doll for this year.

Is it Elyse or Elise???  Lets make up our minds.  I have yet to see a designer or movie influence for this one.  I guess you could say that the hairstyle is reminiscent of The Coneheads.  Seriously!!  This is the mother of all bitch bumps for Integrity Toy’s hairstyles.  Not sure how to tone it down even a little.  I think I may have to just take this one down.  I’m all for a great updo but come on people.  This went past “updo” and went straight to hydrocephalic.  On the positive, I like the pockets on this gown.   This is also my favorite face mold and my number was called.  Had to buy her.

A workshop doll?!!!!  Are you kidding me?!!!  This could have easily been a convention exclusive doll and it would have sold out the first day.  She is Edgy enough for Nu.Face and classy enough for F.R.  Complete package head to toe and the fact that she is one of the twins didn’t hurt either.  Super glad I decided to purchase the doll for this one.  Nice work Integrity!

LOTS of platinum hair going on for this convention.  He is super cute though and love the white leather bomber jacket.

WClub Luncheon and Welcome Cocktail Party Dolls:

Last but not least…the WClub luncheon doll.  This was a doll that you purchased with the price of your lunch.  The ticket for lunch cost $125.00 therefore, I take exception to the description “giveaway souvenir”.  Souvenir certainly…giveaway…not even close.  And lest my grasp of the English language is not as secure as I thought it was, I consulted Webster on this one too.

give·a·way

[ˈɡivəˌwā]

NOUN

a thing that is given free, especially for promotional purposes:

Again I state…giveaway???  not even close.

So…what do I think of our “souvenir”?  First of all I also take exception to the description “dressed doll”.  She is an Eden so I am inclined to love her.  My first thought when I saw her though was…AND?  As in, And…where are her clothes?  It isn’t as if I don’t have a gazillion things to put her in but still, a little wrap dress?, swim suit cover up?, sarong?…hell, I would have settled for a Bjork like swan dress….SOMETHING ( and it would have satisfied the whole cinematic theme as she work that to the Oscars LOL).  I am not upset by her per se…just thinking a better descriptor would have been “lingerie doll”. 

As an addendum to this this years convention exclusives, attendees had the option of also purchasing a special “early bird” cocktail party ticket. The ticket included a doll.   There were two versions available and you had to sign up ahead of time for the version you wanted.  Of course, as with all things, one version was WAY more popular than the other and she became the hot ticket of the convention.
