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.

So…this year Integrity Toys and the WClub did things a little differently.  They basically polled the 2016 WClub members to see what face mold, skin tone and hair color combination they would like to see in a club upgrade doll.  They gave members a little over 2 weeks to vote and here are the results.

It would appear that the majority of members voted for a cream skin toned, raven haired Agnes.  This was actually my vote so I’m kind of stoked to see the actual product.  I have to admit…I am a little nervous about ordering a doll that I have only seen a sketch of but it is what I voted for so I’m in.

As David Buttry told us at the last IT convention, Poppy is headed to London in the 60’s.  This lady certainly embodies that!  I love that she has this lovely brown hair.  While the 60’s are not a time period that I like to collect fashion wise, I can still appreciate the design and aesthetics of this Poppy.  Love her white gloved hands and jaunty hat.  Thumbs up David!

Oh…my…Word!!!  You had me at the Fabergé egg purse people!!!  Don’t even get me started on the shoes.  Modern day spats is what I am seeing…and me likes.  I love this look.  It is feminine and modern at the same time.  I love that the Integrity team has found fabrics and trims that fit in so beautifully in this scale.

But wait there is more!!!

This can be purchased separately as well but if you order all of the upgrade dolls they will send this to your for free.  Nice little enticement I must say.
