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.

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.

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.

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.
