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!

Integrity Toys Luxe Life 2018 Convention - final gala and convention doll reveal

Sorry for posting this so late after the convention but I was away on business and did not have time to write. Better late than never though!

As most people know, Saturday night is the time of the final gala and the reveal of the much anticipated convention doll. The centerpiece doll was the one that first greeted the attendees though, as they entered the ballroom: Agnes Von Weiss!

Item # 91453

Affluent Demeanor

Baroness Agnes Von Weiss™ Centerpiece Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Gala Dinner Event Centerpiece

Edition Size: 450 Dolls

IMG_7048.PNG

Hmmm. Not bad but no comparison to last year’s Agnes centerpiece. And her dress reminds me of an old Barbie release as well as a bubble dress of the same burgundy colour I own. Simple black shoes with ribbon ties, minimal jewellery, no bag... not that luxe for me. Slapping a crown on an outfit does not mean it automatically becomes luxu. Ask Dolce & Gabbana, they have been doing it for ages. And we saw the purple highlights in last year’s convention dolls.

The winners of the convention design competition were also announced. The Diorama Design Competition had only had one participant, so it was the sole winner for both People's Choice and Judge's Choice: Lani Billitti. In the Doll Design Challenge, the People's Choice was the talented and very creative friend Mario Paglino, while the Judge's Choice was the talented and very creative friend Sinuhe Guzman, who later told me he first saw Fashion Royalty dolls in my blog. It made me so happy that those two guys won, they are worthy winners.

Then the winners of the OOAK dolls designed by the Integrity Toys design team just for the raffle room were picked and the host city of next year's convention was unveiled- Baltimore, Maryland. The theme will be “Live from Fashion Week” and it will take place from 10-12th October 2019.

Finally, special guest Jason Wu joined the hosts on stage to unveil the convention doll, which he designed himself, Elyse Jolie.

Elyse Jolie™ Convention Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Edition Size: 600 dolls

IMG_7052.JPG

A bit disappointed with the convention doll. Too much colour on face and hair, too little on the outfit. She’s a hodgepodge of previous Elyse doll’s with the make up of Spring Forward Eugenia. The design competition dolls look much better than this.

Integrity Toys 2018 reveal pt.5: the event doll - Devotion Agnes Von Weiss

Every event has a doll dedicated to it and this year's Integrity Toys webinar was no exception. My haw literally dropped when the first photo of the incredible Agnes Von Weiss doll appeared on the screen, easily surpassing everything I had seen on the screen for the previous hour or so. She's a tour de force, a version of Agnes that is totally original but also has references to older ones, like High Gloss or Optic Verve. She's fierce and majestic, with her Gaultier Haute Couture Automn 2017 inspired ensemble (see it at the very end of the post). I'm happy she has the new sculpted glove hands. Her head jewellery can be worn as a necklace too! Preordered already! She's exclusive to the W Club members.

Fashion Fairytale: Integrity Toys Convention part 4 - the welcome gala and East 59th cocktail

Time to check out the first day of the convention, right? An Agnes Von Weiss doll was waiting for everyone at their table, sitting on a giant throne, dressed in a look inspired by the Evil Queen in Snow White. None other than Poppy Parker was the giveaway doll of the evening, in a Snow White inspired look. And everyone received a Nadja Rhymes doll, part one of the "Build-a-Giftset" box they had received at registration. It looks like she is the reincarnation of Sleeping Beauty. After the ballroom festivities ended, those who had purchased a ticket headed to the East 59th Afterhours Cocktail, featuring Evelyn and Constance as Cinderella and her wicked step-mother. Below are the dolls of the first day.

The Queen of Everything

Agnes Von Weiss™ Dressed Doll

The 2017 Integrity Toys Convention: Fashion Fairytale

Table Centerpiece

Edition Size: 420 Dolls

IMG_3130.JPG

Best Fashion Royalty doll of the convention so far is this gorgeous Agnes. Perfectly reimagined as the Evil Queen from Snow White, she fits the role to a t. The hairstyle looks much better here than on Sea Devil Veronique and her face paint is amazing. But a Queen should have had more amazing jewellery than stud earrings and a simple chain choker. Pity that the two tiered hemline is the only way to see the purple colour of the underskirt.

Beautiful doll but a meh dress. Snow White should not be dressed in white just because of her name! The rose choker should have been an apple one, no? The braid at the front reminds me of the Nu Face Gretel. I hope those boots have a zipper at the back.

Blonde suits Nadja. After going platinum in this year’s Nu Face collection, she gets to be one again for the convention. Her style could be the link between the two latest Nu Face collections, she could easily fit in both.

A Dior Cinderella? Take my money! Fantastic doll, recreating the famous Junon and Venus gowns from Christian Dior. I guess it’s production issues that prohibit the dress to be completely embroidered (the price would probably skyrocket) so they went for a combination of the two gowns, but still she looks awesome. She is available to preorder, Bith To,attendees but also to W Club members who did not go to the convention, with a slightly higher price. See the original Dior gowns below.  Junon is the French version of Juno or Hera, the goddess wife of Jupiter or Zeus. Her animal symbol was the peacock and Christian Dior tried to imitate the effect of its feathered tail with embroidery in an abstract way.

Integrity Toys Summer 2017 reveal: the event doll - Agnes Von Weiss Merveilleuse

As is the norm in the W Club unveils, Integroty Toys offered each member the chance to preorder a special event doll. It is another version of Agnes, who seems to be constantly being offered in version after version from the company lately - we had one as an upgrade doll earlier this year. With Veronique and Natalia missing, I do not see the reason why they or a different character all together could not have been offered to us instead of Agnes again. With that said, I must say this doll is gorgeous. She is a Carolina Herrera deadringer, from the short hair (a first for Agnes), to the puffy white blouse and the long lace skirt, everything screams Carolina Herrera here. And I like it. So maybe we can forgive an Agnes deluge this time. Maybe. I do not get the price hike in this one - another $10 up and it is not even a gift set. Is it the extra skirt fabric?

Agnes Von Weiss merveilleuse doll close up 1

Agnes Von Weiss is a 12.5" fully articulated fashion doll with fully rooted hair, combed into a short, sophisticated style. In this look, she channels a world famous American designer (one of her idols) in a high-contrast, ultra-dramatic ensemble composed of a sateen blouse with romantic puff sleeves and a v-neck mandarin collar, coupled with a high-waisted, very sheer, black guipure lace mermaid skirt lined with delicate dotted tulle. Agnes has some accessories to complete her look: a leopard clutch purse with a long tassel, closed-toe heels and custom jewelry set. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.
