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.

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.

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).

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.

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

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

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.

Same hairstyle as Kyori but in a fierce Titian red for Vanessa. Vibes of Obsidian Society combined with Cruise Control.

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

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!

Integrity Toys 2018 reveal pt.3: East 59th Collection

The third collection presented during the webinar was East 59th. Of course Chris Stoeckel was there to talk about the concept (fashions inspired by cocktails) and give us all the details. Constance Madssen and Evelyn Weaverton are joined this season by the first male doll (now apparently called Fashion Figures) Laird Drake and a newly revamped Victoire Roux, returning with a redesigned sculpt after a two-year absence. Most collectors, me included, were expecting her debut during the convention but here she is. Just like last year, most of the dolls include an alternate ensemble by using extra pieces and lots of miniature accessories like cocktail glasses, bottles and cigars. All dolls are available via Integrity Toys Dealers only and are for adult collectors ages 15 and up only. Most of them will arrive in September, making it difficult to order more than one or two, even though it’s a great collection.

Another new man! This is shaping up to be the year of men for Integrity Toys. He’s channeling Cary Grant, as his styling recalls the To Catch A Thief film. Handsome man and great outfit, plus lots of accessories. I was a bit on the fence about him but finally relented and added him to my preorder. I think most of the new male sculpts not included in the new Homme line could be rejects from that line. Truth is I expected him looking quite older.

IMG_6498.JPG

Constance is giving off Marilyn Monroe vibes. I love the colours, their combination and the design of the outfits, plus the accessories. Too bad my budget is finite. One thing: they talked about the hat as if it was something new, but we have had a similar one with Outsass Vanessa. Unless it is made of fabric and not the usual flocked plastic, it does not look that special. Pet peeve: oven mitts. Bleh.

If I had the budget to add another doll from this collection to my preorder, this would be it. Even though her face reminds me a lot of the Cinderella Evelyn from last year’s convention (and Evan Rachel Wood as well), her styling, outfit and accessories are superb. A Kelly Style bag, a gift box (looks like the kind used for cakes), the pumps opened on the sides... gorgeous!

A beautiful raven haired Wvelyn, wearing an impressive and stylish gown. The accessories are to die for, particularly most being close to Tiffany blue. Oven mitts alert. I actually asked during the Q&A at the end of the webinar, why we see both the old, ugly oven mitts and the new sculpted hand glove with the separate arm piece. One of the designers said that it is an aesthetic decision: sometimes the old style fits the design. He also,said that sometimes the colour of the hand and that of the fabric does not match. I think white should have been easy to make, no?

The return of Victoire Roux! With a redesigned sculpt, so that it will look less cartoony and more realistic, as Chris said. She’s beautiful and I preordered her as I wanted to have the first new Victoire, even though I already have an older one with similarly coloured hair. The versatility of the outfit is nice and her accessories great. She has the new sculpted gloves but the golden colour of the hands does not perfectly match the arm fabric. How come this was,ade and not the white or orange ones for the other dolls? The gin bottle, martini glass and jewellery more than make up,for it though. 

IMG_6528.JPG

Did you like the new East 59th collection? How about the new Victoire? Are you preordering any doll’s from this line? Let me know in the comments.

A new doll line from Integrity Toys: East 59th

A few days ago, Integrity Toys sent W Club members four mysterious sneak peeks and everybody started talking about what they could be, if they were existing dolls or new ones and speculating on their style and fashions. At last, the company unveiled a brand new collection making its debut today online: EAST 59th! The line is actually continuing in the Victoire style, with elegant early 50s fashions. It has the same designer, the incredibly talented Chris Stoeckel, who collaborated with Alain Tremblay on the storyline. According to Integrity, the EAST 59th collection promises to take us back in time to chic and swanky 1950's New York... and where Victoire Roux will enter later... The collection premiered with four new dolls, two new characters so far and can be preordered from the Integrity Toys dealers. If you want them run, as many are already sold out. The new characters have new sculpts and a new body. The body is a modified Victoire body. The change is more in shape and details then size. Chris said they streamlined the body. The upper torso is Victoire's, the upper legs are Poppy's and the lower legs are Industry. The body can be dissassembled as the rest of Integrity dolls. The best thing is that all old Victoire fashions and shoes fit the new body perfectly. More dolls will be coming this year (Laird will be one of them) and Victoire will join the line in 2018. Let's check out the new dolls!

Constance Madssen™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. This doll comes complete with all of the components needed to transform her look from day-to-night and back again. Of course, no modeling gig would be complete without the product to advertise (and be seen with!) and Constance has her own miniature pack of cigarettes and a signature cigarette holder. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0009.JPG

This is easily my favourite doll of the line. She stands far and above the rest, both as a doll and as an outfit. It's a classic hostess outfit (the main look) that transforms into a more casual, skin bearing look. The accessories are gorgeous and it looks like her shoes are not plastic like the rest of the line (more on that later). I'm pre ordering this one.

Evelyn Weaverton™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with rooted hair and features hand applied eyelashes. Ms. Weaverton opted for a look that can easily transform from a day look to an evening look with just the switch of a few pieces. The look comes with jewelry that complements the shade of her electric blue satin outfit, two pairs of assorted retro-looking shoes and a makeup set. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity is also included.

IMG_0016.JPG

The second character has a sculpt I'm not particularly fond of, at least in its first two presentations. This looks more 40s than 50s and I think it's more to do with the styling than the actual outfit. I love the hair colour and the accessories, although they should have included a bag - no woman of that era ever left home without a bag, her gloves and her hat. But the plastic shoes are a bit of a deal breaker. When I pay $135 for a doll, she should not have simple plastic pumps. Asked about this, Chris said it was done to give the dolls a retro doll feel. To me it simply looks cheap. He did say that the line will feature the handmade shoes Integrity Toys gives the other lines, so that is good. If I wanted plastic I'd buy Barbie for a fraction of the price.

Evelyn Weaverton™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with fully rooted hair and features hand applied eyelashes. With its removable, perfectly draped lavender train, Evelyn's elegant gown transforms from a look designed to "wow" any crowd, to a sophisticated cocktail attire. The doll comes complete with an specially-marked miniature bottle of Veuf Christoph Pomarin Cuvée 1951 champagne, two champagne flutes, long opera-length gloves, a floral head piece, jewelry and a pair of retro-looking molded shoes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity is included.

IMG_0022.JPG

I think this second version of Evelyn (who is actually named after Chris's grandmother) is not as glamorous as th previous one. The dress reminds me of the one Monaco Vanessa was wearing. The cocktail look is more early sixties, it could feature easily in the TV series Feud. And plastic shoes again.

Constance Madssen™ is a fully articulated 12.5 inch doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Ms. Madssen is wearing a tailored costume that can go from day to night with just a few simple changes of accessories. The doll comes complete with two different pairs of shoes, a "fur" stole, two cocktails, a doll-sized menu from the swanky Hawthorn Room (the place where everyone on East 59th likes to hang out and gossip), a chic hat, a clutch, gloved hands and pearls. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity is also included.

IMG_0027.JPG

This version of Constance pales in comparison to the first one. Although she comes with nice accessories, there's something about her that makes her look plain. Maybe if the fabric of the suit was in a houndstooth pattern or tweed... Something else that I'd like to see in this era are the shorter hairstyles most women were sporting, barely reaching the shoulders. The long hair looks a bit dated for this decade and especially for models of the time.

IMG_0029.JPG

We have seen the cocktail glasses before in IT dolls. Notice the painted glove hands, with dots that mimic the leather perforated driving gloves of old. So, are you getting any of the new line dolls? 

IMG_0028.JPG

One last thing: the packaging! Integrity Toys' resident packaging expert, Alain Tremblay, created a brand-new, collector-friendly package for these new collectibles! Each new mini trunk-like package features a sturdy tray construction with individual doors to make sure all of those little glamorous accessories are kept safe and sound! Here's a 3D rendering of the package to give you an idea of what to expect when the new dolls start shipping approximately in the Summer of 2017.

FInal Victoire Roux dolls for 2014 - two of them!

The last release from Integrity Toys for 2014 is a pair of Victoire Roux dolls, available to order at all Integrity Toys dealers. Remember that this is the first time dealers are selling Victoire dolls - they usually are either W Club specials or IT Direct. Does this mean that the line is becoming more popular? I am a bit picky about the dolls I get from this line as they all share the same sculpt so they must really be something extraordinary to catch my attention. Let's see how these two fared.

Doll Tech Specs:

Body Type: Integrity Toys / Victoire
Head Sculpt: Victoire Roux
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tones: FR White
Hair Color: Platinum
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand Applied


Victoire Roux is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl doll with flowing wavy platinum hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Victoire is casually dressed in a stylish ensemble composed of a sheer chiffon blouse with built-in bustier and capri pants, cinched at the waist by a pale grey chiffon belt. The look is completed by silver open-toe pumps, a fashion magazine, a pillow and earrings. A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.


Beautiful looking doll and in a hair colour I do not own (my two Victoires are different shades of red). But she has an almost too simple hair do (although it does have potential) and I'm not that crazy about her outfit - a hostess ensemble might have looked better with those capri pants. Minimal accessories too - almost a basic doll.

For adult collectors ages 15 and up.



This one could have been really stunning, instead she's simply nice. Red hair - again! A dark shade could have been so much better - after all, it is oriental themed. Love the hat and the shape of the outfit but the fabric is not to my taste. Gorgeous green and gold obi-like belt. Boring earrings (enough with those studs) and shoes.

Integrity Toys Gloss Convention Part VI: IT Direct dolls and more

The dolls presented here were not part of the Gloss convention collection. They were IT Direct items, available for purchase to all attendees of the Integrity Toys 2014 event. They are enough to make up a separate ensemble themselves, although they are varied enough to avoid being part of the same collection, both in style and in size.

Item # 78013
Afterhours
Hanne Erikson™ Dressed Doll
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls


The only big gal of the convention, Hanne is part of the FR16 team - and the most produced sculpt of them all - this is her fifth incarnation, if you take into account her Platinum version and the three Obsidian versions (each with different hair colour and style but same outfit). She's tanned and wearing a slinky sequinned night blue outfit that rocks. 


Item # PP069
Wild Thing
Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 600 Dolls 


There was a fourth Poppy available in the sales room (if you count one in the collection and two at the luncheon). Again a 70s styled doll, she sure looks like a wild thing - and probably wins the fluffiest outfit award. 



Item # 76019
Dial "V" For Victoire
Victoire Roux™ Dressed Doll
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 500 Dolls 


A mini-giftset was featuring Victoire Roux as she plays a jewel thief in her latest film. Two outfits included and a lovely red headed Victoire. 



Item # 15059
Jolt!
Dressed Doll
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 500 Dolls


Don't let the name fool you. This is the Ayumi 1.0 sculpt on a Poppy Parker body. She's part of the ITBE line along with the following two dolls. Although it is one of my favourite sculpts, I do not like her colouring or dress.


Item # 15060
Zing!
Dressed Doll
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 500 Dolls 


This is the Amelie sculpt from the Misaki line, on a Poppy Parker body and part of the ITBE line. I guess this was an effort to do something including something from a line that's almost extinct. The following doll has the same sculpt.


Item # 15061
Oomph!
Dressed Doll
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 500 Dolls 


They could have made this a brunette or a redhead just to make her a bit more different than the previous one - they're almost twins! Unless that was the idea behind it.


Item # 85067
Time Served
Official Workshop Fashion Figure
The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 400 Dolls


Last, but not least, we have the watch workshop doll - he has the Chip sculpt and a style that veers toward a latin lover - Mediterranean go-go boy look. Or George Michael in his Wham days.
