Hand me the Envelope please - the latest Sybarite is sold out!

This Valentine’s Superdoll London doll is the beautiful Envelope, a brilliant take on a geisha, in her white kimono, towering hair and intricate details. She’s already sold out I’m afraid, but you can enjoy her in the photos from Superdoll below, as well as the site description.

ENVELOPE DD-0156

Anyone here for the opening of Envelope?

VENUS strolled through a sea of paper cranes singing to herself: "its a nice day for a white wedding....".
Her gorgeous oriental styled hair is just a hairs breadth short of a statuesque ikebana. Platinum, but in hair terms its almost white, white. Above the shoulders blunt bob, pulled up into a top bun and side bunches; with long paper like sideburns and a blunt slightly curved fringe..
Her gold and teal eyes are rimmed in salmon, rose and soot and her lips of pomelo glossed and glossed again.
Other than her utter delight at the origami cranes, she is delighted by her dragon and peonies brocade 2 part kimono. A whole lot contemporary and a whole lot traditional... just a vision of genius from her favourite designers.
Tucked into her obi, are velvelette laser cut starfish held in place by her gold and purple obi. Her choice of jewellery is a 'silver' bug adorning her obi and finished with a white corded obijime. Ceremoniously she wears a red silk tasselled waist sash.
upon her feet she wears Sock style 2 tooth Geta.
She looked up and smiled at the jucstaposing cranes which reminded her or her organza backpack which indeed is her kimono overcoat.
Venus smiled over her Japanese paper umbrella as the world went by and though....
Happy Birthday to ME!

London Fashion Doll Festival takes place this Saturday! Are you ready?

I know Simon Farnworth for many years, first online through doll groups and social media, and of course his incredible doll portal Doll Observers. We finally met for real last month at IDC in Milan. And now he's presiding over the London Fashion Doll Festival, which will be held this Saturday, 30th of June at the V&A Museum of Childhood.

BannerEventBrite.jpg

The LFDF 2018 is organised by members of the London Fashion Doll Club, a not for profit organisation. A group of like-minded collectors who came together with the dream of organising an inclusive event for Fashion Doll Collectors. The event is not directly affiliated or sponsored by any doll brands or companies, including Mattel. Money raised from the raffle on the day will be donated to the V&A Museum of Childhood and proceeds from their Charity Doll Auctions will be donated to the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity.

The event is titled WONDERLAND and the organisers have also managed, in association with Superdoll Collectables, to secure a very special Sybarite Doll Upgrade Package for attendees to purchase. I think this is a doll anxiously awaited by all, attendees or not.

The Summerly Rooms at the V&A Museum of Childhood will be home to the event with salesroom, exhibition, talks and more. Special OOAK Alice In Wonderland themed centrepiece dolls were specially designed for the event. Attendees will have the chance to win one for themselves. An Exclusive Fashion by Microsonik London will also be handed out along with a goodie bag.

There will also be time for a spot of Afternoon Tea, following the general theme. A special breakout event for the unveiling of the exclusive Superdoll Collectables Sybarite event doll will also take place for the upgrade conventioneers. Charles Fegen from Superdoll will also treat attendees to a talk about the history of the Sybarite dolls. Other dolls brands exhibiting at the event include Andymy Designs, RDG dolls, Emperis, Janka Creator, Anouk, and Free Fantasy Dolls

Registration for the event was £70 which includes entry, refreshments, goodie bag and more. The Superdoll Upgrade Package, which includes the regular registration price, Sybarite doll and VAT was priced at £448. Cannot wait to see the dolls and photos from the event. Hopefully next year, I might be able to attend myself!

Superdoll London celebrates Christmas with another great trifecta of dolls

Just like last year, Superdoll London dazzles us once again by releasing three impressive dolls just in time for Christmas. Not only that, they added a small regalia set (crown and sceptre) to compliment the looks. Each doll represents one of three elements: earth, wind (air) and fire. If I could buy one, it would probably be Vushka, as I’m a sucker for smokey eyes and pale lips, even though her outfit is the most conservative of the three. It’s great seeing three different Sybarite sculpts in one release. The regalia set adds a nice touch to the release but better fits Vushka and her princess look. The one thing no missing from all three sets: jewellery.  

Let’s check out the dolls. Text and photographs below courtesy of Superdoll.

Lips of dark rich red. Her multi piece ensemble; a confection of chocolate satin hot pants and a corset dripping in beads is the foundation of her 'look'.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Poppy is an articulated doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. Clad in her modern pastel tweed suit, Poppy is also wearing a matching hat, pink bag and matching gloved hands. 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.
