Reigning Grace Revealed!

Back in April, Integrity Toys broke with tradition and released a sketch of a doll that was purportedly an indication of the theme for this year’s convention.  See original blog post here.

I admit…I was one of those that paid attention more to the sketch than the reference to the movie on this one.  I was thinking Eugenia was going to be brunette.   Well “Duh” Rebecca…the actress this design was channeling was Grace Kelly!  Grace, is blonde.  Guess I should have known.  Other than the fact that this is the third blonde in a black dress from IT this month, I LOVE her.  Even though I am kind of disappointed in the blonde version ( would have preferred raven on this one), I am still buying.  I will immediately switch out the silver necklace for pearls but the dress is out of the park gorgeous. 

No information was released about skin tone on this one but she looks to be either Japan or Cream to me.  Will have to wait and see.

Reigning Grace

Ok WClubbers and anyone interested in 1/6 fashion dolls, here is Integrity Toy’s first indication of what this years convention and convention collection will give us.  Information was released for public consumption on the doll that will be available to all WClub members.  Integrity Toys convention attendees will get a special price on this fashionista.  The first look, however, or the feel of this years convention theme would indicate “Nirvana” for those who appreciate classic Hollywood history and costuming.  Needless to say, this first look into the convention has activated the “pavlovian “response in this collector.  I believe I am wearing a bib while I type this post to control the drool…I am that stoked based on a mere sketch of a doll.

WClubbers, check your email for the link to purchase this exclusive.  If you are not in the club, Ebay will be your best choice after this baby is released at convention. 

Thanks to Travis and Veronica of the WClub, we are directed to the influence for this lovely fashion and a window( yes…pun intended) into the upcoming convention’s inspiration.  This dress is a dead ringer for one of Grace Kelly’s costumes in Rear Window designed by Edith Head.

Classic “Cinematic” styling and influence.  If this is what is in store for us at IT convention, I will be apoplectic with glee.  I know it is just a sketch of a doll and I know that it may not mean a whole lot but the promise of a convention that will pay homage to historic Hollywood design and costuming is absolutely buoying this post.  I.T. , you are setting a high bar.  I am hopeful you will meet and exceed it.
