IFDC 2018 - four new Poppy Parker dolls unveiled!

The IFDC convention took place from 27 till 30 of June 2018 in Las Vegas. This year, as usual, Integrity Toys made the convention and companion doll’s as well as the centerpiece plus one more IT Direct doll- and they were all Poppy Parker dolls! They were unveiled late Saturday night by the company team, another small collection created by the talented David Buttry. Every attendee also received a table gift from Integrity Toys, an exclusive Poppy scaled guitar designed just for the event. The four dolls make a very coherent group, all hippie themed, appropriately enough for the psychedelic theme of the convention. I like the variety of skintones and styles, even though a Darla with a big afro would have looked better than another black Poppy. They have different feet between them, the first has the high heeled foot, while the rest of them have the articulated foot to better match their shoe style. Always remember that lower legs are interchangeable and can pop out to be replaced with another type, if you desire. Regarding the new hand sculpts introduced for this collection: meh. They have no use than maybe one or two poses and that’s it. Plus they do not look as realistic as her normal hands, but more cartoony and almost weirdly squished. What do you think?

Since the number of dolls made is larger than the attendees, the remainder is to be available through lottery to W Club members only. So if you are not a member, you will have to try the secondary market for them. The lottery will be held approximately in ten days and members have until the 25th of July to pay the dolls. Let’s see the dolls that were presented.

I like this one, although, as mentioned earlier, a Darla with a huge afro would have looked better for me. Doll and outfit are great and would make a nice addition to the collection. Love the hat, it is very Jacquemus and will match other summer styles well. I’m still undecided about which doll I will enter the lottery for, but this one is ahead at the moment.

A beautiful girl with lovely colouring and a cute outfit. The hat and sandals are again great. I’m a bit on the fence for this one as I already have the Swinging London Poppy that has the same hairstyle but more intense red hair and paler make up. Hmmmm...

This was the centerpiece doll so her edition is the smallest, only 350 dolls. I’m not entering for this one, the dress print reminds me of a couple of previous dresses and her colouring matches a couple of my Poppies too. Easy pass.

IMG_5891.JPG
IMG_5892.JPG

If her hair colour was darker, she’d be a dead ringer for Lana Del Rey, flowers on the head etc.  She’s beautiful and has the Hungarian skintone that makes her different from blond Poppies with pale make up I have. Her earrings and bag are gorgeous. I’m not crazy about the dress though and the braids in her hair mean less versatility. 

IMG_5893.JPG

As I mentioned earlier, all IFDC attendees received an exclusive bonus souvenir gift, a 60's themed guitar designed to fit with this quartet of dolls. This accessory is not available online,but  there's a picture of the centerpiece doll with the guitar in-hand.

Dollton Abbey: IFDC convention dolls by Integrity Toys take a creative spin on the theme

The IFDC convention was held in Las Vegas, celebrating its tenth anniversary at the Orleans hotel. The theme this year was Dollton Abbey, a celebration of the British tv series Downton Abbey that was very popular on both sides of the Atlantic. I was really curious to see what Integrity Toys would do with their convention dolls, from the moment the incredible Jim Pharaone, heart and souls of IFDC announced they would be dong them again this year. I must say I was kind of expecting Poppy Parker to be used as the basis of the dolls, as she usually is for bygone era clothing. Or maybe the new sculpts from the East 59th street line. On Saturday night. members of the Integrity Toys team presented the trio of dolls as part of the NU. Fantasy™ Collection, created by Vaughn Sawyers, based on this year's IFDC convention theme. It was not a literal interpretation of the era, but a modern take on it. Which is a shame, as I would really love to have some outfits from the first decades of the 20th century (the series begun at 1912 and ended right before the big recession of 1929) on Integrity dolls. Just imagine if each doll had an outfit of a different decade on her. And it was an era with major shifts in fashion and style for women, freeing them from corsets and conservative looks to define the essence of modern woman. Remember that Coco Chanel started back then.

Remember that these dolls were available only at the convention and a very small number was reserved for W Club members, where a lottery will take place for the right to buy them. Members have until the 17th of July to participate. Let's see how the dolls look like and how close they came to giving us a taste of Downton Abbey.

Feeling Wild is a 12.5-inch fully articulated doll that features fully rooted hair. She comes dressed in an intricately constructed, off-shouldered chiffon evening gown which features delicate embroidery at the bust. A veil, jewelry and shoes complete her look. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity are also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

IMG_0738.PNG

Very beautiful version of Giselle, with a Fashion Royalty body. From real life convention photos, one can see that the hair is fuller and not as stiff as the prototype photos show. I like the dress but it does not give off any Downton vibes for me. It looks more like modern couture, something that Taylor Swift would wear to the Met Gala. I love the jewellery but for the $150 price tag, she should have had a nice evening bag to compliment the outfit. And a chocker necklace too.

Never Predictable is a 12.5-inch fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair and comes dressed in an embroidered gown, designed to mimic the fineries of a time gone by. She wears long opera length gloves, shoes and jewelry. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity are also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

IMG_0742.PNG

Now that's more like it. The silhouette, colours and embroidery draw heavily on the first decades of the 20th century while being brought up,to date by the hairstyle, textures and sheerness of the fabric. The sculpt is not to my liking but makes for a very interesting doll. The dress is stunning and so are the gorgeous shoes. Again, a bag should have been included in this price.

Touch of Whimsy is a 12.5-inch fully articulated doll features fully rooted hair and comes dressed in a unique and thoughtfully decorated hand-painted overcoat, created just for the occasion. Her original look is completed by long thigh-high boots, a hat and jewelry. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity are also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

IMG_0745.PNG

 Again a modern take on very early 20th century fashions, with a touch of late Victorian influences. The result could have been better, while still being quite impressive. She could have been starring in Ripper Street (another great British tv series taking place in the late 1800s) as a hooker in Whitechapel. I'd prefer the sleeves and front part of the overcoat in navy blue like her panties, instead of white, and a navy blue ribbon on the white hat. There are four different fabrics on her. Overkill. Adding a pair of lace fingerless gloves and a drawstring pouch would have made her perfect. The light pink lipstick does not flatter this face sculpt. In real life photos the hair looks fluffier and looser, which is not good for this hairstyle. I looooove the boots. Love them. Even though they look like they will be a pain in the ass to put on the doll, no matter the zipper at the lower part. The price is a bit higher for this one, $175. Is it for the boots? I can't find anything that justifies it. She has only a pair of earrings, the boots, a hat and the outfit, which is not very intricate. Is the fabric expensive? Inquiring minds want to know.

IFDC 2016 Integrity Toys convention dolls: Agent 355 - Mission Lovejoy

The International Fashion Doll Convention 2016 - or IFDC as most people know it - took place this weekend in Las Vegas, with a spy/James Bond theme. Integrity Toys, which created the convention dolls once again, did an incredible job and brought to us some great dolls - one of which is almost perfection. Alain Trembley styled all three of these winners and boy, did he do an amazing job. I love the fact that instead of a male spy saving the woman scientist, it is  the other way around, plus the villain of the story is a woman too. These were all available for convention attendees but W Club members also get the privilege to enter a lottery for a limited number of them, so if you are a member, check your email right now! 

Item # 75020
Anja™ as Agent 355
IFDC 2016 IT Direct Exclusive Dressed Doll
Approximate Ship Date: After Winners' Payments are Received
Limited Edition Size: 500 Dolls Worldwide
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00
IFDC / IT Direct Exclusive
 

Doll Tech Specs: 
Body Type: FR2013
Head Sculpt: Anja™
Quick Switch Feature: No 
Skin Tone: FR White
Hair Color: Brunette
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied


Anja™ is wearing a sequined tuxedo and high-heels, but her ensemble also includes a gun, a camera, a map, a picture of the mysterious Professor Young and a mission brief. Anja™ is a fully articulated 12.5-inch doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included. The rope shown is just a prop and is not included with the doll.


Even though many collectors adore the micro-sequined suit, I cannot bring myself to like it. I do understand though that another simple one would be too much, since we have got one in almost every convention collection these past years. The doll's make up looks fantastic and I love that she's wearing a choker, a very of the moment detail. She could be starring in any 70s Bond film as an equal partner to Roger Moore. The camera and map in scale are amazing.

Item # 75019
Marius Lancaster™ as Professor Young
IFDC 2016 Exclusive Companion Fashion Figure
Approximate Ship Date: After Winners' Payments are Received

Doll Tech Specs: 
Body Type: FR: Homme
Head Sculpt: Marius Lancaster™ (Brand New Sculpt!)
Quick Switch Feature: No 
Skin Tone: FR White
Hair Color: Blond
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied


Marius Lancaster as Professor Young is a brand new character making his debut in the family of Integrity Toys male figures and comes dressed in a classical, slightly geeky look, complete with red silk tie, handkerchief, argyle socks and oxford shoes, black reading glasses and a watch. He comes with his half of the formula of the love potion that he invented and a set of colored test tubes in a rack, a never seen before accessory created just for this set. Marius Lancaster is a fully articulated 12.5-inch fashion figure with fully rooted hair. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.


I can see that the huge wide head trend in Hommes is continuing and this worries me about the main line. If they decide to make new faces for the new Hommes to be unveiled in the near future, and they have this huge wide head, I will not be buying them other than for body replacements. Other than that, the rest of the doll is amazing - great outfit and lovely, detailed accessories. The shoes and socks are TDF.

Item # 75018
Dasha™ as Anika Luxottica
IFDC 2016 Exclusive Convention Dressed Doll
Approximate Ship Date: After Winners' Payments are Received

Dasha™ is dressed in a futuristic lab gown and techno heels, and comes complete with two full sets of limbs that can be switched at will and her half of the mysterious love potion. One set of the limbs is semi-transparent and robotic, as she is supposedly an "enhanced" human in the spy scenario. Dasha™ is a fully articulated 12.5-inch doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included. Test tube not included.


I love this doll. Everything is perfection about her, from the hair and make up to the dress and shoes to the transparent set of limbs. I am entering the lottery for her and hope I win - I have never won an IFDC doll in a lottery before. Keeping fingers crossed.
