Here Comes the Bride–Poppy Parker Part 2

Yep…not done with the wedding theme yet.  I just love the Silkstone Barbie Wedding dress.  It has graced a good chunk of my collection over time and I swear it looks amazing on every single doll I have put it on.  I also added something I don’t usually have in my wedding shots…a groom.

Poppy Photo Shoot 2011/2012 Resort Wear Final Look Hot Pink!

Well…you knew it had to end ( I can hear some of you applauding in the background)  For her final look on this photo shoot, Poppy is wearing a new addition from this years Barbie Basic swimsuit line and the color is HOT.  No, I did not pump up the saturation levels on these photos.  The color of this swimsuit is really that vivid…and happens to be one of my favorites…hot pink.

Poppy Photo Shoot 2011/2012 Resort Wear 4

Are you sick of Poppy yet?  Well I’m not so here is more Poppy spam.  Today Poppy is showing us a more muted and refined South Beach look.  Robert Best designed a number of dolls from 2006-2007 called “On Location” Barbies.  The swimsuit in these shots is from “On Location South Beach” Barbie.  All the dolls in that series were fabulous and I still have them.  They came with a swimsuit, sophisticated evening outfit and a more casual day wear look.  What more could you have asked for in a set?  Sadly, he only did four and that was it.  The set was worth it for the clothing alone but the dolls themselves are gorgeous as well.  Here is the link to their photos at the Barbie Collector website:

I am really appreciating these sunny shots today.  We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground with more on the way tonight.  This is unusual for the Pacific Northwest in the United States.  We don’t typically get this much snow so close to the ocean.  I’m glad that Poppy is enjoying her time in the sun.  Winking smile

Poppy Photo Shoot–2011/2012 Resort Wear 1

As many of my fellow collector enthusiasts and photographers know, building  miniature sets for photo shoots is not the easiest thing to do.  It can be incredibly frustrating if the picture in your head does not match the diorama that is unfolding in front of you( not to mention everything falls over with the  slightest movement…I wish I could tell you how many times I had to reset the Re-ment pieces on the table….lost count after 5).  There have been countless times where I had to scrap an idea and come up with something completely different because it just would not come together.  Then…other times it just comes together so easily…a piece here, a piece there..oh I think I have this and it would look great there…kind of thing.  I love it when everything just kind of comes together.   Also, and I don’t know if anyone else does this but, when I set up a diorama for a photo shoot there is a story in my head as I build the scene.  The more elaborate the diorama, the more elaborate the story in my head.

Typically, as day after day runs the seemingly unending gauntlet of rain, rain and more rain during January in the Pacific Northwest, my mind will stray towards sunnier places and luxurious vacation spots.  That was definitely the thought process behind this set and the next couple of sets of photos.  The story in my head had Poppy vacationing in the beautiful south of France.  She is on a patio of some palatial villa overlooking the stunning unique blue of the Mediterranean Sea.  There is a pool just off camera and Poppy is relaxing in the sun just before breakfast.  Oh the life!  And that is one of the beauties behind the photos for me and one of the reasons I enjoy photographing these miniature diva’s so much.  I will most likely never vacation in a palatial villa in the south of France….but Miss Poppy can….and that is better than nothing.

Ehhh hmmmm!!  Well Miss Poppy…what’s with the honkin’ rock you are wearing on that all important digit??!!  Word is that Poppy’s boyfriend Chip will be making his debut in 2012.  Perhaps it’s a bit more than “boyfriend”???  Will have to see about that.

Sweet Confection has arrived!

After waiting approximately 4 months, the much anticipated WClub exclusive “Sweet Confection” Poppy Parker has arrived.  ** promo photo is property of Integrity Toys, Inc.**


Her skin tone is a bit darker than the promo pictures would indicate but the face is beautiful.  The mod clothing is not something I really collect or a design aesthetic that I prescribe to so the second she arrived…it was time for a redress.  All in all, I would have to say I really like her.  The really tan skin tone is something I think I am going to have to get used to.  Time will tell if she stays or not…but I do love the rooted eyelashes on this lovely lady and the absolutely scrumptious platinum blond tresses set against that very tan skintone.  Very, very pretty.
