December to remember - a special invitation by Tonner Doll

Tonner Doll sent out today an invitation for a sale event at Best Western Plus in Kingston, NY, something they have done before. This time though they are clearing house, so they will be selling lots of prototype dolls. Full information in their text, below:


Dear Friends!

We're inviting YOU to an "Event" quite unlike anything we've ever hosted before!

Here's a bit of what's to come...
On Thursday, November 15, 2018, in just three days...we will send out an email with registration information (and a link) for signing up for this "Once in a Lifetime Opportunity."  Regonline is our hosting site for you to "sign" up as we've done for all our events in the past.  PLEASE NOTE, and READ CAREFULLY HERE, the registration will begin at 12 Noon Eastern time on Thursday, November 15, 2018th.  Once registration is complete (125 people maximum) we will conduct a lottery and assign entrance numbers to everyone.  Once you arrive and check in begins you'll receive your name badge and entry number and line up accordingly.  Ooooh, and the excitement begins!
For what you ask...

As you can see from the "snippets" below through images, we've collected quite an array of items over the years to rival even the most compulsive saver.  BUT we're turning over a new leaf and YOU get an opportunity to "peek into the Bat Cave" and take your pick from...
Never produced samples, assortments of dolls, and bodies, line products, pre-production samples, patterns, wigs, and outfits
Can you say TONS of fabric, swatch bags, trims, flowers, bits, bobs, beads, baubles and more
How about LIFE SIZE Robert Tonner Fashion Line Clothing (with a private tent for trying on)
Costumes from Conventions even, and perhaps holiday decorations
Doll furniture, props, foamboard/posters of your favorite characters, stands, bags, and books 
Puppies, kittens??  Okay, perhaps not...
Other ephemera YOU would never guess we have
When, Where? - The Event will be December 9, 2018, from 10am-2pm at the Best Western Plus in Kingston, New York. (Come on, you've been here before, join us won't you) Entrance is $25.00 AND includes a continental breakfast starting at 9am.  We will be allowing people into the room in groups of 25 for a defined period of time.

WE hope to see you there!

Sybarite Atelier Extreme Edition Couture outfits

What better way to celebrate Paris Couture week than a bunch of extra limited Atelier Extreme Edition Couture outfits by Superfrock? Most of them - if not all - are already sold out! The site mentions that photograph colours are 99.9 percent true to actual colour and to please bear in mind your monitor may be set differently. Also it stresses that photographs are  actual descriptions, as there are no description texts on site. Items are sold with no cancellation or refund accepted. All pieces are ready to ship. Dolls are not included. This sale is for gowns only. 



In stock and ready to be delivered (at time of writing the post)

Price: £480.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)


The only big gown of the line up, it looks majestic, like something the Queen Of The Night would wear in the Mozart opera The Magic Flute. The turban gives me a New Orleans vibe. I wonder what the shoes look like.





Price: £300.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)


Beautiful shorter two-layer dress with 50s vibes. Lots of embroidery on top of the flower pattern. The absence of colour helps in keeping it from going into kitcsh overdrive.




Price: £600.00(Excluding VAT at 20%)


What a Couture day outfit looks like, this is my favourite from the collection. Gorgeous suit, great accessories and perfect styling. 




In stock and ready to be delivered (in time of writing the article)

Price: £440.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)


Metallic trench coats appear regularly in most fashion doll collections, regardless of era or size. This one comes over a sheer embroidered form fitting dress that makes it really stand out. 




Price: £400.00(Excluding VAT at 20%)


Another sheer embroidered dress, this time in mermaid shape and fiery red colour. The capelet looks a bit odd combined with it, like it was an afterthought.
