Sparkle Poppy Sparkle!

And sparkle she does!  I realized I had not given any love to this particular convention Poppy for well over a year.  Not good.  She was part of the 2015 IT convention collection.  Here she is in her original outfit and jewelry.  She is however, sporting a new set of hands that were a recent find on Ebay.

Check out the teeny, tiny acrylic nails!!  I found them on Ebay.  Don’t know if this vendor offers them up regularly or if they were just a short term thing but this is where I got them.

Love the facial screening on this one.  While nails like this are not something I normally go for…I think they do add a very glamorous look to this Poppy.

Lavender Luxury

Easter weekend is upon us and everything is coming to life in the garden again.  The trees  are all blooming pink and white, the daffodils are up and the lilacs are on the way.  Life is good.  With this symphony of pastels booming in the yard, I had to do something in the studio to celebrate it.  I had the perfect model in mind too.  Recently, I sent the lavender haired Mood Changer Poppy Parker head over to Jon Copeland-Childers for a “spa” treatment and what he sent back to me had my jaw dropping.

There are spa treatments and then there are Jon treatments.  I stand by the Jon treatment.

**Note** Before I get a gazillion questions, I have to declare here that the luggage I used is not OOAK.  It is the set from the Poppy Parker Sabrina series but I have photo shopped the trim to lavender.

This suit is a favorite of mine.  It is from the IT 2013 Premier Convention Collection.  I was searching through some Edith Head sketches a couple months back and stumbled across what might have been the inspiration for this one.

Poppy Parker Live from the Oscars Red Carpet!

Every time the Oscars roll around, I feel compelled to do some kind of red carpet or Oscar themed shoot.  I have done Barbie getting dressed in her closet.  I’ve done Barbie on her way to presenting the Oscar.  I’ve done Barbie on the red carpet.  I have yet to do any Integrity Toys, Inc products for the Oscar night festivities.  Well…I’m going to fix that right now!  Poppy Parker is going to the Oscars!

The Power of Pink!!

Actually, I wanted to title this blog post “The power of pink, a new frock and a little bit of sunshine” , but it would have been too long.   When you live in the Pacific Northwest and it’s the dead of winter ( which means rain people…lots and lots of rain), if one ray of sunshine peaks out, you are grabbing your camera and saying “What can I take a photo of!!”  Or maybe…that’s just me.   Yes I am seeing someone about my random photo tendencies when in the presence of intermittent sunshine LOL!

So, recently I took ownership of this adorable little dress from Hilda of Bellissima Couture.  To me this dress just makes me happy.  It’s pink yumminess with a hat.  Also, it gave me a chance to use a new model in the studio..Ms. IT Airways Poppy Parker.  She came with a pair of hands with white gloves ( Thank you David!!) so I knew I had to use them in a photo.  I know by reading the WClub boards that a number of people were less than pleased with how the hair came out for their Poppy’s.  Mine was not the best when she arrived but a very thoughtful and gifted group of souls on the WClub talked some of us through what they did to fix their Poppy’s hair.  It worked like a dream on mine.  If you are a WClub member and want to see the tutorial, head over to the WClub forum and look under IT Airways Poppy.  My “thanks” to the contributors!

She is a young Anna Wintour here.  The hat did not come with the dress.  It is a floral scrapbooking embellishment.  The pink pearl necklace is one I made.

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.**

2015 Poppy Parker Collection Revealed

©2015 Integrity Toys

David Buttry walked collectors through the new offerings for 2015 in the Poppy Parker collection.  This doll line is an increasingly popular line for Integrity Toys and David Buttry brings a wonderful vision to his designs and this collection.  He stated in the webinar that his inspiration for this collection started with a documentary about Diana Vreeland, legendary fashion icon and editor of both Harpers Bazaar and US Vogue. The 1960’s will come alive again through Poppy Parker this year.

For those of you who are not WClub members and have not been in contact with dealers regarding these dolls, run don’t walk to your IT dealer and get on the list for anything you want.  The grapevine reports that many of these Poppy’s are already sold out.

The name of this girl says it all.  She is all suited up and accessorized  for a modeling “Go see”.  The little blue portfolio with pictures is a nice touch.  She is adorable and for those collectors that are happy to enter into and stay in the 60’s for a while, this collection will be right up your alley.  I am still a fan of the 1950’s Poppy so most of this line is a pass for me.  I am happy for those collectors who do favor this time period.

Awwww!  David said this was an ode to the Breck Ad girls of the 60’s.  I totally feel that.  Adorably sweet.  Humming “Everyone knows it’s Windy”.

Whoa!  You have to give it to a designer when they really take themselves outside of the box and go with it.  While the 60’s is not my favorite fashion era, you have to love the full out no holds barred drama and fun of this look.  This is total 1960’s Verushka Vogue.  This is also, according to David,one of his favorites from the collection.  Far out!  I am shocked this wasn’t one of the centerpiece dolls for upcoming Cinematic convention.

My first response to these photos was “Hello, Foxy Brown!”  Poppy is headed full steam into the 60’s and so is her friend Darla.  Now I am humming “age of Aquarius.”

Pam Grier as Foxy Brown—gorgeous!

“Yeah Baby”.  Nigel seems to have a little Austin Powers going on. OK…now I am hearing Soul Bossa Nova by Quincy Jones ( Austin Powers theme song).  How can you not hear that theme with this groovy guy.  This is a new face sculpt and screening according to David.  Love that he has a camera.

YES!!  Collectors request for an AA Poppy have been answered.  Thank you David and I.T.!!  This is one from this 60’s themed line that I am hoping to get.  David called her a 60’s Beyonce.  Nailed it.  You will see her skin tone is FR Black which is the same color as Adele.  Can’t wait to see this lady in real life.
