Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention: the W Club luncheon

Saturday always begins with the W Club luncheon. Club members got to see the Lilith Blair centerpiece doll (and many the chance to buy her) and received her twin sister Eden Blair doll, both designed by Jessy Ayala.
Carol Roth hosted a Q & A panel on stage with the Integrity Toys design team, where Club members' questions were answered.

Am I the only one that not going gaga every time the twins make their ubiquitous appearance either as a club exclusive or a convention doll? Probably so. I love the brows on this one, combined with the tan skin tone they make her look fab.

Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention: the highly anticipated Menswear Collection Launch did not live up to the hype.

Friday afternoon at the convention continued with more shopping and workshops, but many convention guests (and many more not attending the convention) were eagerly anticipating the Menswear Collection Launch Event and Party. The new Hommes body and line have been in the pipeline for many years (five if I’m not mistaken) so everyone that collected the Male Integrity Toys dolls were holding their breath. The importance was such that the reveal had  replaced the very popular Friday night bazaar and masquerade ball.

Unfortunately, even thoug guests got to hear about the design and inspiration behind the newest line, named The Monarchs, from Integrity Toys designer Vaughn Sawyers. All attendees received the Undercover Declan Wake Male Doll. !More information on this hot new line will be revealed to W Club members by email, and some prototypes were shown on a slideshow, with one also sent by email to Club members that is under strict no-show order. There was no centerpiece for the event, just an empty acrylic base with the new line logo, that was raffled instead. One can imagine how disappointed people were, as they were expecting to be able to purchase a dressed male doll from the new line, as the convention package mentioned. The doll was nowhere to be seen. Because of that mishap, the unveil lasted only a short time and the only information people managed to get out from Vaughn was that attendees would get first dibs on a dressed male doll sometime soon.

The doll shown was offered to everyone who attended the launch event for "The Monarchs". The formal introduction to the new line will take place later this winter, with a full reveal of the new storyline, characters and looks.

IMG_7024.JPG

So this is the body that took Integrity Toys five years to redesign. Other than making it skinnier and more defined, I do not see an actual improvement over the old one. No improved articulation, no better neck joint. Cosmetic changes are all nice and well, but real redesign should have made for a better articulated body, with a neck allowing male dolls to move their heads better and make them look more expressive.

IMG_7025.JPG

None of the old, first wave of Hommes will be part of the new lin up: no Pierre, Francisco, Darius or Takeo. Which is a pity to hear, as they are very special and beautiful sculpts. I’m a Declan fan but this looks like his best ever version too much to be considered great. His hairstyle does not help - it looks like some third rate Mediterranean lover boy would sport while out cruising the tourist traps. Easy pass. And no, having a semblance of a penis will not make a doll better. Nice bag though - the big one. The other can simply disappear into the eighties it came from.

Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention: Poppy Parker Luncheon

Friday began with shopping and workshops. Then, it was time for the annual Poppy Parker luncheon. Guests were greeted with the Snow Stopper Poppy Parker as the centerpiece doll. And, as is the norm, everyone received Lemon Frost Poppy Parker. Let’s check them out.

Apart from the over the top coat, the rest of the doll looks amazing. Great colours (except the orange eyebrows) and make up for the doll, nice outfit with gorgeous accessories as well.

Again I’m not too crazy about the coat but dress and doll look beautiful. Attendees also got lots of information about next year’s Poppy Parker line that will be a new wave of spy Poppies, this time in Brazil.

Integrity Toys Luxe Life Convention 2018: Welcome Doll and Convention Collection

This year the most awaited Integrity Toys event takes place in Portland, on the west coast of the USA. Attendees and organisers travelled far to,reach the convention grounds and the party is just getting started. Social media started buzzing with the first photos from early arrivals yesterday and today, first official day of the event, we get the first full post. 

Convention registration started Wednesday for those arriving early and everyone was welcomed by receiving the "THE LOVE OF LUXE" Veronique doll in their welcome bag, along with a monogrammed acrylic chair accessory.

Item # 91457

The Love Of Luxe

Véronique Perrin® Welcome Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Edition Size: 600

IMG_6949.PNG

If she had different colours in her make up, she’d look great. The outfit is boring and the accessories not anything to write home about. Not a great debut for a luxe themed event.

IMG_6950.PNG

I like the lucite chairs, especially those mimicking Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost, but I’m not sure about the monogram treatment.

IMG_6951.PNG
IMG_6952.PNG
IMG_6953.PNG

We finally get to see the convention Upgrade doll that was available for pre-order when registration started. "A Fabulous Life" Rayna Ahmadi doll made her appearance and every W Club member, attending or not, could pre-order her last spring. 

IMG_6954.PNG

Item # 82108

A Fabulous Life

Rayna Ahmadi™ Convention Upgrade Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Final Edition Size: 1400

IMG_6955.PNG

We had the chance to preorder her based on a sketch. The outfit is a copy of an Alexander McQueen Automn/Winter 2018 outfit:

IMG_6990.JPG
IMG_6991.JPG

Having figured out the outfit from the initial Integrity sketch, I was excited and waited anxiously to see the final result. And while the doll is perfection (black hair, pale skin, red lips, Rayna sculpt, duh) and the execution looks great (draping and proportions seem exquisite), the main element of the dress is not red as in the original. Instead it is a pale violet/beige that makes the outfit flat and boring.

IMG_6956.JPG

Really guys? If it was a matter of possible trouble with copying, just make it another bright colour: emerald green, cobalt blue, saffron yellow. I’m very disappointed with this choice. Other than that, I’m glad I got her, she is the best doll revealed in the convention yet (and that includes the rest of the doll’s in this post).

IMG_6957.JPG
IMG_6958.JPG

Next up is the 2018 Convention Collection: Dolls from the Fashion Royalty® Collection were designed by Jason Wu himself (Eugenia, Tatyana, Kyori, Vanessa), the NU. Face™ Collection by Jessy Ayala (Giselle), the East 59th® Collection by Chris Stoeckel (Victoire) and the Poppy Parker™ Collection by David Buttry.

Item # 91449

Subtle Affluence

Eugenia Perrin-Frost™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life 

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6959.JPG

I like her face and hair, the outfit not that much. Glad to see convention doll’s with bags for a change. The shoes look like those worn by the Vero given at registration. The ensemble gives off an Yves Saint-Laurent vibe, from the old days. It just need some big gold and enamel cuffs to set it perfectly.

Gilded Oligarch

Tatyana Alexandrova™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6962.JPG

This one also reminds me of older Yves Saint Laurent collections. Ruffles, black and red, ribbons, fishnet stockings, bright make up. Just pile up the bangles and add a gold heart shaped brooch and Yves and Loulou would be proud. This will look great with the red, heart shaped coat from last year.

Optic Illusion

Giselle Diefendorf™ Dressed Doll

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6966.JPG

And here’s your  basic Optic Verve Agnes clone. In a more youthful look, yes, it’s Giselle after all. I like the doll but not the dress. A beret with a mermaid gown? Not very luxe. And the transparent long skirts in gowns died a few years ago on the Met gala steps. But look at that face. Gorgeous.

Gold Snap

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6969.JPG

This is the doll with the most buzz in social media so far in the convention. People are going gaga about her. For me, she’s ok but not better than Rayna or Kyori (my other favourite). Or the other Poppy that was unveiled today (more below). I think the hair colour is wrong for this outfit. But it’s just me. Love the necklace.

Divine Evening

Victoire Roux™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6975.JPG

The new Victoire sculpt makes its second appearance this year. And looks even better in this emerald concoction that reminds me of fashions worn by Gene Marshall. Beautiful doll and lovely gown. Her widow’s peak and skunk striped hair fit her perfectly. She has the new type gloves that look amazing with this kind of fashion. The necklace could be a green version of the one worn by Take The Picture Funny Face doll.

IMG_6976.JPG
IMG_6977.JPG

And finally  the IT Direct Souvenir Shop Exclusives. It has almost become a given for the last few conventions that a few more surprise dolls are unveiled in the salesroom alongside the main collection and this year there are three of them.

Item # 91448

Prosperous Complexity

Kyori Sato™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Salesroom Exclusive

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

What a gorgeous Kyori. Great face and hair and a dress that reminds me of the McQueen copy dress from the Heist convention.

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6986.JPG

Fantastic looking Poppy Parker doll, in ice blue and silver. Hair styling is like Misty Hollows Poppy, while elements of the ensemble bring to mind Out Of Thos World Poppy.  She has a bag (fluffy!) and a suitcase!
