First time for Agnes in FR black. She’s gorgeous, isn’t she? We have seen her before in skintones other than her usual, white-as-porcelain complexion, and it suits her a lot. The swimsuit and wrap skirt look is definitely inspired by similar Versace looks, more recently seen in the tribute collection last year. The yellow/golden draped dress is more difficult to pinpoint; people have tried to match it to Versace chainmail dresses, to a Kim Kardashian look (based on her hairstyle, sheesh!), but to me it looks a lot like an older Fashion Royalty dress, the one worn by On The Rise Elyse Jolie.

IMG_9773.PNG

She has a great looking face, looks very different than her previous darker skin editions, plus her accessories are fantastic: two pairs of shoes, a nice bag, earrings that look like the Versace Medusa, charm bracelets, a starfish ring, plus a redesigned version of the older Fashion Royalty coin necklace. Just wish she had a more modern design for her (seen before a lot) sunglasses. Maybe if I could find some gold shells or starfish in scale and glue them on the sunglasses? The W Club informed us that she mails in a regular doll box, so shipping is cheaper than other giftsets. Good work IT!

The first W Club doll for 2019 is Midnight Decadence Poppy Parker and it’s a 10th Anniversary Souvenir Doll!

Early June is a bit late to release the 1st W Club Exclusive Doll of the 2019 membership year. But if you remember that last year the first club dolls were unveiled in September, it looks just fine. Yesterday, the club unveiled "Midnight Decadence" Poppy Parker™ 10th Anniversary Souvenir doll, designed by the talented and beloved David Buttry, featuring a special bonus illustration created by David himself to mark this milestone in the brand's history. It was 2009 when the first Poppy Parker dolls were released. Time sure goes by so fast!

A bit surprising for the 10th anniversary souvenir Poppy, don’t you agree? She’s wearing quite an original and avant-garde gown compared to her first released sisters all those years ago. The fabric would not be my first choice, but it’s luxurious and impressive in this styling. David said the sleeves are separate as well, so she can wear the short dress with them. The doll is a twin sister of Welcome To Misty Hollows Poppy, with different shades in her make up and a bow designed just a bit this way as to not look identical to Misty. 

IMG_9689.PNG

The jewellery has been used before in different lines and dolls. I love the monogrammed clutch. The shoes are black fabric cutout pumps, with bows and feathers at the heel. I was expecting a doll styled more in sync to the debut collection, but I think I prefer this one, she’s more dramatic and decadent. Can’t wait to see the rest of the Poppy dolls the year has in store.

The fifth and final W Club doll revealed for 2018

The late start of the 2018 W Club year meant that we got the W Club doll releases crammed into the six last months of it. Hopefully the next year will be a bit more streamlined. This meant that members of the club got the notification for their last W Club offering in late January. The fifth and final Club doll is Eugenia, missing from the main collection so far, which should be welcome news to everyone. Jessy Ayala designed this doll, with only accessories and small details connecting her to Sacred Lotus and the Luxe Life Convention Collection.

A very beautiful doll to end the year. She’s not groundbreaking or different from older releases, but she’s a lovely doll with gorgeous clothes and lots of accessories, justifying the price tag. Even though generally I preferred the earthy and dark tones of Sacred Lotus dolls versus the eighties pink/blue ones of Luxe Life, in this case I would have gone for the latter.

IMG_7895.PNG

Another peeve: black gown. We’ve had big black gowns in the past (even though I own none of them). The fashion runways are filled with bright or pastel coloured big frilly gowns - check out the recent couture shows for Spring 2019. Why black? Just think how much better this would look in blue, fuchsia, yellow or green. Or even a lightweight print muslin. And enough with the tan trench coat! Give us one in an unexpected colour, like white, lilac, pink or lemon! Or olive green!

IMG_7896.PNG

It’s the kind of choices and details that distinguish a properly trained and educated experienced designer from a talented but still-findin-my-way-one. Merely copying runway looks does not help in forwarding your work by itself. Studying and researching needs to be constant and thorough. Even if, accidentally, you score the summer garden thread of the Couture collections now held in Paris. And yes, I did preorder the doll. She’s a keeper. But she could have been a holy grail.

It was mentioned in the convention by Integrity Toys and everyone was waiting for the news. Are they good? Oh yes! It’s nit just one, but two dolls as a giftset.

IMG_7062.PNG

Quite a set, no? The main attraction is of course the Bergdorf Goodman clone, which, if one had to choose, would surely influence any split decision! She does look a lot like the doll she mimics, even has a similar outfit but in different materials and colour. Gorgeous doll, even though I am not sure about the boots. And quite a smart move, pairing her with another doll, as this will surely become one of the most ordered dolls in W Club history. 

IMG_7063.PNG

The second doll pales in comparison to the first, even though she is a lovely doll. She has a major flaw: the very long bangs that hide even her eyes, making her look weird. Some people thought she was another sculpt altogether. If the bangs are trimmed, she will surely look much better. I’d have gone for smaller earrings and a choker for this one. Unfortunately there’s only one necklace in the set, probably to keep the price low.

First W Club doll for 2018 is unveiled - and it’s twins!

The W Club year officially begun in March for 2018, so everything has been coming out later than usual. That includes the W Club dolls, exclusively made for its members, a total of five for the year. The first one was teased a few days ago to members, then was revealed to be the Nu Face twins, Lilith and Eden. They are designed, like the main Nu Face line, by Jessy Ayala, with a press/newsprint theme. I’m not that crazy about them. The fashions look half done and the doll’s are ok but don’t scream “buy me” to me. They are quite different in style both to the Nu Face main line and the upgrade Rayna, which is weird but not really a problem. Don’t ask dealers, these are W Club exclusives, so if you’re not a member, wait till they start arriving early next year to get them on the secondary market. They are not a giftset but sold individually, so any member can buy either one or both twins. At $135.00 per doll, that’s $270 for both, quite a jump from the $200.00 that last year’s twin set (see what I did there?), which was more elaborate, cost.

Lilith is easily the better of the twins, with her dark hair, pale skin and red lips. If her eye make up was more interesting, I might have caved in. I already have Rock Wedding Lilith and Smoke And Mirrors Lilith, so this one barely compares.

I have a blonde Eden, Elements Of Surprise, so I’m not in a hurry to get another one. The freckles are too cutesy for my liking and her outfit looks like Barbie turned goth. I love the t-shirt though.
