The London Fashion Doll Festival 2019 was amazing - and I was there to experience it!

My second ever fashion doll convention, the London Fashion Doll Festival 2019, was held on the weekend of 8-9 June in London, at the lovely V&A Museum Of Childhood in Bethnal Green, London. I had promised the organisers that I’d join them in this second time of the convention being held, so there I was! The event took place over two days in the Summerly Room Of The museum, plus an adjoining smaller room for the workshop.

Everyone registered upon entry, with an easy scan of our ticket. We were given our goody bags according to our registration level (with or without the exclusive Superdoll convention doll). As I found out, the bag had loads of lovely gifts!  Check them out below.

The tables were set for eight persons and mine was named Carnaby Girl. I had the honour of being in the same table with Desmond Lingard (from Superdoll), Izzy Parker with her husband Ian, Christina Paul (who runs the Doll Club Of Great Britain website) and of course, from the organisers, Simon Farnworth, his husband Carl and Kim London. What an amazing company to be with! The tables had a folder with two lovely sketches inside by Navdeep Sikand, creator of the lovely Anouk dolls...

...who also offered ten of them for centerpieces on each table! They were raffled off to the attendees near the end of the day, Izzy won ours. The dress and bags are made by Ineke Hintz. The gorgeous base was given along with the doll. If enough requests are made, LFDF will be able to have some for sale. 

Our centerpiece doll! There were blonde and raven versions of the doll.

Everyone else at the table got a small gift as well - i won the miniature chess you see below in the round box. I was lucky enough to receive some lovely gifts from my table mates too - Kim gave me the tea set (donated by her), Carl the amazing jewellery set (by Alla Dolgaleva Rapoport), Sofia the miniature Barbies and the wonderful Thomas Bartholomew Maffei, who came all the way from the USA, gave me the Sparkle Girl outfits!

Izzy had a gorgeous doll with her, the fantastic Glory resin Sybarite from the Los Angeles Convention earlier this year (above) , while Desmond had with him the 12” House Of Zenith Avenue, introduced earlier this year. She’s not wearing her original fashion and looked better IRL than in photos I had seen (below).

IMAGE.JPG

Soon enough, it was time for the workshops to begin. I had registered for both, so my schedule was full! First one was the Face Up workshop by Claudio Coronado, who was introduced by Simon Farnworth. 

IMAGE.JPG

Claudio was very thorough in showing us the steps in how to begin painting a doll’s face. A slideshow helped him show the detailed work he does. 

IMAGE.JPG

We got a great list of all the steps to follow when painting a doll face and helped us understand it is no easy task. Which is why you see the “before” photo of the doll head I had to paint, but not the “after”!

The artist at work. This magnifying glass type is perfect for detailed work, I must get one.

After the end of the workshop, I had the chance to photograph the dolls on display. The Carnaby themed set up was beautiful.

IMAGE.JPG

The items that were going to be raffled off the next day, to support a great cause, the Children With Cancer UK charity, we’re also on display. See the slideshow below. I should also mention that there is an ebay auction with exclusive OOAK creations (dolls or outfits) for LFDF 2019, to benefit the same charity, that ends on the 22nd of June 2019, so go to this link to check the offerings and bid!

If you love Sybarites, you know Desmond is an incredibly talented photographer as well. Some of his magnificent prints were on display and for sale.

IMAGE.JPG
IMAGE.JPG

There was a small exhibition of 60s dolls as well, check them out below in the slideshow.

Emperis Dolls had a beautiful display as well and I got to meet the lovely Marcus and William who make them. They had both their new 12” dolls and their 16” ones on display and for sale. Some amazing OOAK dolls were there too, check out Cher in the slideshow below. The guys told me they almost sold out during the day.

Then it was time for the second workshop of the day: Sofia Kalaitzidi from Microsonik London showed us how to make a flower wig. These were very popular during the 60s in editorials and covers of fashion magazines. Elizabeth Taylor and members of the British Royal family were sporting them often in events.

IMAGE.JPG

Here are the materials Sofia gave us for the wig plus a prepared base for us to work on.

IMAGE.JPG

I managed to go as far as you can see below during the workshop (I’m hopeless with a needle). Some just threaded the larger flowers through the base as they had long wire stems, so no sewing needed, but I wanted a more delicate effect. Will try and finish it home!

IMAGE.JPG

And here I am next to the lovely Francesco from Fred-Dolls at the workshop - we had so much fun!

IMG_6214.JPG

After the workshop ended, it was time for afternoon tea! A proper British tea, with everything necessary - tea, scones, clotted cream, jam, milk, sandwiches, sugar, macaroons and other treats! It was delectable.

IMAGE.JPG

During tea time, members of the organising team (l to r: dear Ismail, Simon and Claudio) presented the people dressed in sixties or sixties inspired clothes.

The t-shirts worn by the organisers ate the official convention shirt and all attendees got one!

there were eight of them, all lovely and dapper in mod outfits…

public.jpeg

…and the winner was Olga, who was the most popular - people voted for their favourite contestant by giving them their raffle ticket!

public.jpeg

Near the end of the day, it was time for the most anticipated reveal: Desmond unveiled the exclusive convention Sybarite doll!

public.jpeg

Her name is Dejah and she is the last Generation X Sybarite doll to be released! The edition is 30 dolls and there are two more available at the LFDF site - hurry up!

public.jpeg

You can see my doll below, as I opened the box right after the presentation. The last photo is the official one from Superdoll. She’s like a Motown singer from a girl group the 60s or a Northern Soul singer on a tour in Britain in the late 60s..

And here I am with dear Desmond - this one is for you Shazam Paname! Charles was in China, supervising doll production in the factory.

This was the first day of the London Fashion Doll Festival, full of wonderful people sharing our doll passion, making beautiful memories and seeing so many gorgeous dolls. Next up, the Salesroom day.

The 2nd London Fashion Doll Festival is being held this weekend at the V&A Museum Of Childhood!

The second edition of the London Fashion Doll Festival will be taking place this coming weekend at the Victoria & Albert Museum Of Childhood, in Bethnal Green, London. After the success of last year’s first edition, the organisers are making this one even better and enriched with lots of activities. And guess what? I’m attending this year! So those of you not being able to attend will get to see lots of photos and read all the juicy stuff after I return.

IMG_9677.JPG

This year, the theme is Carnaby: the Swinging London fashion era, with Twiggy, Mary Quant, Jean Shrimpton, Carnaby Street fashions, mods  and so much more as inspiration! You can see the program for the two-day event below. Access on Saturday is only for registered attendees, while the Sunday salesroom can be accessed by the public via tickets bought either online or on site. 

IMG_9676.JPG

As you can see in the program, there are two workshops, one for making a flower wig and a second for doll face enhancement, which is already sold out. 

IMG_9675.JPG
IMG_9674.JPG

Just like last year, the incredible Superdoll Collectables London people are making an event exclusive doll, a LE of 30, which will be revealed at the event. It will probably be one of the last vinyl Sybarites. I have already reserved mine and can’t wait to see her!

IMG_9679.JPG

The salesroom is full of amazing dolls and doll stuff:

IMG_9683.JPG

There are some competitions and even non-attendees can join! Take a look here

IMG_9678.JPG

The V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, London is once again serving as the venue for the second convention.  The MOC is the UK’s National Museum of Childhood. It is the largest institution of its kind in the world. Its mission is to hold in trust the nation’s childhood collections and to be an international leader in engaging audiences in the material culture and experiences of childhood.

IMG_9684.JPG

This year LFDF decided to support the Children With Cancer UK charity. They are doing this via an eBay OOAK doll auction and a raffle which will take place during the Sunday Salesroom. Last year LFDF raised almost £14,000 for the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity.

See you in London!

Beautiful Poppy but all dressed in black? We already had one black clad Poppy in the previous wave, Welcome to Misty Hollows. And too many blondes already too.  If she was a red head, it would make her so much more intriguing. She is very elegant though.

Beautiful doll again and, while the outfit is very original and would love to have it, the doll looks like one from the 2016 collection, Go See! She's the lottery doll for W Club so, if not a member, it will be a bit hard to get.

hold that tiger poppy parker Full3.jpg

This Poppy Parker doll is 12-inch tall and fully articulated, featuring hand-applied eyelashes. Her mod hair is trimmed in a short, sleek bob and Poppy wears a tiger print mini-dress under a bright pink fur coat. Shoes, handbag and jewelry complete the look. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

hold that tiger poppy parker CU.jpg

Pops right at you this one! Not a fan of this animal print, so money saved here. I don't like her bob either - why can't we get an AA Poppy with a more AA hairstyle of that era, like a wild afro or an elaborate african-queen style up-do? The fur is a bit cheap looking, no?

Poppy Parker goes to Swinging London!

Poppy Parker fans and particularly W Club members, already knew that this season Poppy Parker would be traveling to jolly ol' England for a fashion trip like no other. On Friday 12th of May, Integrity Toys unveiled the Swinging London Collection to club members via email. This year, the Poppy Parker collection is split into two waves, so this is only the first wave, with a second one to follow later in the year. While most of the dolls will all be available through the network of Authorized Integrity Toys Dealers, this year, instead of a "lottery" doll, there is an event doll available for all W Club members to preorder . Remember that all,dolls except the last one (Misty Hollow) are available to preorder from Integrity Toys dealers. See a list here: 

http://www.integritytoys.com/authorized-dealers/

On Saturday, May 13th, the Poppy Parker designer, talented David Buttry, was available for online chat with W Club members. Things we found out about the line? Darla is on a little break. The 2nd wave, which will be part of the same collection, might feature Poppy's friends, but no male dolls. They use the big eye screening first seen on Coney Island Saturday Poppy. There will be another one doll gift set in the next wave. There will be no high heeled doll in this collection because the fashions of the period use either kitten heels or flats. No cream skin tone this year for Poppy, although he is considering it for the future. There are two waves to spread the release and help with the collectors' budgets. And the doll box, designed by Alain Trempley, will be with a front window and styled like the famous London red telephone booth. It was also announced that Poppy Parker will be the doll of the 2018 Italian Doll Convention! Now let's see the dolls and what I think about them!

Here you get not one, but two Poppy Parker dolls in the same collector friendly package, showing Poppy upon her arrival to London from Paris and then post her sleek Mod makeover. Each fully rooted and articulated doll features very distinctive looks, designed to illustrate Poppy's passage to a new evolution of her look as a "Mod"ern doll. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0273.JPG

The brunette has a new screening designed by Jessy Ayala. And she channels young Jackie Kennedy a bit. Love everything about her: her polka dot suit, her frilly shirt, hand bag and shopping bag, plus the ring! 

IMG_0274.JPG
IMG_0275.JPG

Look at this gal. Gorgeous all over. She does channel Out Of This World Poppy from 2015, but that one had long hair and Japan skin. I love the dress and the earrings, we have seen the bangles before and the clutch is good. Two dolls for $180? Yes please.  No wonder the set is probably sold out by now.

This gift set features a youthful rendition of Poppy Parker, which features fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Poppy comes with three colorful mini-dresses, three pairs of shoes and all sorts of little mix-and-match fashion accessories to create many looks. It comes in a brand new Mod-themed collector package (different than the telephone booth one I presume). The necktie featured on the blue dress is removable. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0284.JPG

Love this gift set too, although for this price, I'd expect at least one or two bags. Good thing is one can use bags and accessories from older mod collections, as the set is quite versatile. No wonder the set is very popular with collectors. 

IMG_0286.JPG

Check the photo below, from Carnaby Street, London, late 60s. David Buttry posted it on his Fb profile. You can see many elements from it in the three outfits of this gift set.

IMG_0294.JPG

Second dark skinned Poppy means collectors going nuts about her. This was probably the first Poppy of this collection to sell out in dealers. I like everything about her except her hairstyle. She would have looked so much better with a short bob, with or without fringe. She would look so much better with a small cap and a bag. I hope to get her umbrella and clear boots at some point.

She also comes with a small camera. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

IMG_0300.JPG

I like the outfit but not the doll. It's either the hairstyle or the fact that she reminds me of Hippy Dippy Poppy. The camera is to die for but I'd never buy a doll just for that.

Gorgeous doll, she's probably the smash hit of the collection. I could not resist ordering her, even though Imalready have Out Of This World Poppy with same skin tone and hair colour. Love her. As she is a W Club exclusive, it will be difficult to get her if you are not a member.

Happy Doll Days pt3: IT Airways Poppy Parker lottery for W Club members

It seems that Integrity Toys has an airline and they're hiring! Just kidding people! The giftset that was announced at the Cinematic convention finally did make an appearance as a lottery opportunity for the right to buy one of the 800 Poppy Parker IT Airways sets offered to members of  Club only. It is a gorgeous set, with a beautiful doll (Poppy in a bob and bangs is always great looking) and two colourful outfits that fit perfectly with the other Model Scene dolls. The story goes that Poppy is now a spokesmodel for IT Airways. After the doll photos, you can see the probable inspirations for the outfits.
Club members should note that the deadline to enter the lottery is the 3rd of December, noon ET.

Poppy Parker is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. Poppy comes in a mod coat accented with lime green trim, a multi-color print shift dress with matching hat, and a two piece bright pink belted suit with apple green turtleneck. Mid calf boots, flats, earrings, lapel pin, and a white travel case with the IT Airways logo complete the ensemble. A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.





And here are some of the probable inspirations for the outfits - mainly the Branliff air hostess uniforms designed by Emilio Pucci ins the mid and late 60s. Pucci’s clear plastic helmets were called Rain Domes, and they were meant to keep those 60s hairstyles protected from the elements. However, the impracticality of the Rain Dome was imminently apparent. They cracked easily and were abandoned after one month, as there was no space in the overhead bins, or anywhere in the cabin, to store the large plastic bubbles. Pity we do not get one for Poppy. Braniff also enlisted the first lady of American shoe design, Beth Levine, the designer of Nancy Sinatra’s boots for “These Boots Were Made for Walkin’” publicity, to create both leather and plastic footwearfor the crew.
