Integrity Toys Luxe Life Convention 2018: Welcome Doll and Convention Collection

This year the most awaited Integrity Toys event takes place in Portland, on the west coast of the USA. Attendees and organisers travelled far to,reach the convention grounds and the party is just getting started. Social media started buzzing with the first photos from early arrivals yesterday and today, first official day of the event, we get the first full post. 

Convention registration started Wednesday for those arriving early and everyone was welcomed by receiving the "THE LOVE OF LUXE" Veronique doll in their welcome bag, along with a monogrammed acrylic chair accessory.

Item # 91457

The Love Of Luxe

Véronique Perrin® Welcome Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Edition Size: 600

IMG_6949.PNG

If she had different colours in her make up, she’d look great. The outfit is boring and the accessories not anything to write home about. Not a great debut for a luxe themed event.

IMG_6950.PNG

I like the lucite chairs, especially those mimicking Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost, but I’m not sure about the monogram treatment.

IMG_6951.PNG

We finally get to see the convention Upgrade doll that was available for pre-order when registration started. "A Fabulous Life" Rayna Ahmadi doll made her appearance and every W Club member, attending or not, could pre-order her last spring.

A Fabulous Life

Rayna Ahmadi™ Convention Upgrade Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Final Edition Size: 1400

IMG_6955.PNG

We had the chance to preorder her based on a sketch. The outfit is a copy of an Alexander McQueen Automn/Winter 2018 outfit:

IMG_6990.JPG
IMG_6991.JPG

Having figured out the outfit from the initial Integrity sketch, I was excited and waited anxiously to see the final result. And while the doll is perfection (black hair, pale skin, red lips, Rayna sculpt, duh) and the execution looks great (draping and proportions seem exquisite), the main element of the dress is not red as in the original. Instead it is a pale violet/beige that makes the outfit flat and boring.

IMG_6956.JPG

Really guys? If it was a matter of possible trouble with copying, just make it another bright colour: emerald green, cobalt blue, saffron yellow. I’m very disappointed with this choice. Other than that, I’m glad I got her, she is the best doll revealed in the convention yet (and that includes the rest of the doll’s in this post).

Next up is the 2018 Convention Collection: Dolls from the Fashion Royalty® Collection were designed by Jason Wu himself (Eugenia, Tatyana, Kyori, Vanessa), the NU. Face™ Collection by Jessy Ayala (Giselle), the East 59th® Collection by Chris Stoeckel (Victoire) and the Poppy Parker™ Collection by David Buttry.

Item # 91449

Subtle Affluence

Eugenia Perrin-Frost™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life 

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6959.JPG

I like her face and hair, the outfit not that much. Glad to see convention doll’s with bags for a change. The shoes look like those worn by the Vero given at registration. The ensemble gives off an Yves Saint-Laurent vibe, from the old days. It just need some big gold and enamel cuffs to set it perfectly.

Gilded Oligarch

Tatyana Alexandrova™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6962.JPG

This one also reminds me of older Yves Saint Laurent collections. Ruffles, black and red, ribbons, fishnet stockings, bright make up. Just pile up the bangles and add a gold heart shaped brooch and Yves and Loulou would be proud. This will look great with the red, heart shaped coat from last year.

Optic Illusion

Giselle Diefendorf™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6966.JPG

And here’s your  basic Optic Verve Agnes clone. In a more youthful look, yes, it’s Giselle after all. I like the doll but not the dress. A beret with a mermaid gown? Not very luxe. And the transparent long skirts in gowns died a few years ago on the Met gala steps. But look at that face. Gorgeous.

Gold Snap

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6969.JPG

This is the doll with the most buzz in social media so far in the convention. People are going gaga about her. For me, she’s ok but not better than Rayna or Kyori (my other favourite). Or the other Poppy that was unveiled today (more below). I think the hair colour is wrong for this outfit. But it’s just me. Love the necklace.

Divine Evening

Victoire Roux™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6975.JPG

The new Victoire sculpt makes its second appearance this year. And looks even better in this emerald concoction that reminds me of fashions worn by Gene Marshall. Beautiful doll and lovely gown. Her widow’s peak and skunk striped hair fit her perfectly. She has the new type gloves that look amazing with this kind of fashion. The necklace could be a green version of the one worn by Take The Picture Funny Face doll.

IMG_6976.JPG
IMG_6977.JPG

And finally  the IT Direct Souvenir Shop Exclusives. It has almost become a given for the last few conventions that a few more surprise dolls are unveiled in the salesroom alongside the main collection and this year there are three of them.

Item # 91448

Prosperous Complexity

Kyori Sato™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Salesroom Exclusive

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6978.JPG

What a gorgeous Kyori. Great face and hair and a dress that reminds me of the McQueen copy dress from the Heist convention.

Item # 91451

Opulence For The Bold

Vanessa Perrin™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6982.JPG

Same hairstyle as Kyori but in a fierce Titian red for Vanessa. Vibes of Obsidian Society combined with Cruise Control.

Chiller Thriller

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2018 Integrity Toys Convention: Luxe Life

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_6986.JPG

Fantastic looking Poppy Parker doll, in ice blue and silver. Hair styling is like Misty Hollows Poppy, while elements of the ensemble bring to mind Out Of Thos World Poppy.  She has a bag (fluffy!) and a suitcase!

Integrity Toys 2018 reveal pt.4: Fashion Royalty - The Sacred Lotus collection

The last collection of the line up was Fashion Royalty. After last year's smashing La Femme collection, Jessy Ayala took the design reigns again and delivered a gorgeous collection, this time inspired by Bollywood. With Isha as the central character, the collection takes shapes, colours, textures and elements from Indian dress and translates them into modern clothes, mostly evening but with some daywear as well. Since La Femme was mostly daywear, it was only natural that evening attire would take centre place this time. The theme of returning characters continued with Kyori and Isha, who had been absent - Kyori for a couple of years, Isha since 2015. I love the collection as I am very fond of the Indian culture. Plus I have a special connection with India, having done two photo shoots with my dolls for Indian fashion magazines, which you can see here and here. The dolls are available through dealers except Vanessa, who will be an IT Direct lottery later in the year. Let's check out the dolls one by one.

tatyana_goddess_sacred_lotus_91441_CU.png

What a gorgeous doll! This one opened the FR presentation and took my breath away. One of the best Tatyana versions ever, her screening gives a fresh look to the character (and golden fingernails!) while the outfit is simply amazing. It is probably inspired (cough) by a Spring 2013 Marchesa outfit (the original was shiny grey). The jewellery is totally indian while the bag and shoes complement the ensemble perfectly. Goddess indeed! She was preordered in the blink of an eye.

Kyori_karma_Sacred_lotus_91442_CU.png

Aaaaand she's back! Missing since 2016 and her eye-decal version, Kyori makes a much anticipated return in the Fashion Royalty collection, with a daring Fall/Winteer 2017 Gaultier Couture inspired outfit. The asymmetrical outfit successfuly integrates Indian and couture influences (the tuxedo lapel versus the sari drape for example) and becomes more versatile by removing the bodysuit to transition from day to evening. She has the most discreet jewellery but the thigh-high boots more than make up for it. She does remind me slightly of Vice Kyori but she is the new sculpt and the colours do look lighter than the old ones. Vice was closer to Latina, this one is closer to Indian, but of course the styling and outfit make the difference. She's coming home too!

Natalia_Resurgence_Sacred_Lotus_91443_CU.png

Resurgence indeed! What an impressive Natalia! Jessy said that Miranda Priestley from The Devil Wears Prada, was a partial inspiration for this one. I see Victoria Beckham too. The Gucci turban makes an appearance here, even though its real-life counterpart did raise lots of cultural appropriation complaints when it debuted in the Mens Fall/Winter 2018 collection. But that was mostly because it was shown on white models and because it was a copy of the Sikh turban. This one looks more african to my ignorant eyes. She's coming home!

Included:

12.5" fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes;
Off-white tulle gown with light gold sparkle threads woven in and floral embroidered organza;
Off-white belt with detailed "gold" buckle;
Long off-white satin gloves;
"Gold" and "diamond" hair jewel;
"Gold" and "diamond" statement earrings;
Multiple bangle bracelets in "gold"/"diamonds";
Large "diamond" statement ring;
Light "gold" metallic clutch with "jeweled" chain detail;
Clear/light metallic "gold" pumps;
Henna tattooed forearms and hands;
Doll stand;
Certificate of authenticity.

Important Note: The jewel on Isha's nose is not-removable. Removing the jewel will damage the doll permanently and void the warranty.

isha_divinity_sacred_lotus_91445_CU.png

I should be happy with Isha, but I'm not. I already have Style Notes from 2015 and she is much better than this version, minus the henna tattoos. Her outfit is the biggest culprit as it is white, which in India is the colour of mourning. No Bollywood star would ever wear white if she wasn't going to a funeral. It does not even have bridal connotations, as in India brides wear mainly red. The fact that it is inspired by a Marchesa 2013 dress does not help one bit, as it is in their usual shapeless overdecorated style, not even coming close to a recognizable Indian dress style. If you take away the jewellery, her styling and henna tattoos, she could be any western girl dressing up. What a missed opportunity and how remote from the glory that Age Of Opulence Isha was. I had high expectations it seems. And yes, those are oven mitts. Ugh.

vanessa_serenity_sacred_lotus_91444_CU.png

What a mesmerising Vanessa 3.0 doll! After Vanessa 1.0 and 2.0 sculpts getting dark as ITBE editions, here is the newest sculpt in all its chocolate glory. She looks fantastic and is dresses in two gorgeous outfits that compliment her dark complexion perfectly. It's incredible that if no one mentioned what sculpt it was, it would be anyone's guess - or not? She's a lottery, with a higher edition than these things usually get, so fingers crossed. More information about that in late autumn. Her bag is a miniature version of Chloé Nile minaudière bag. The draped sash at the waist is just like the ones used by Haider Ackermann in his Spring 2018 collection. While her "daywear" ensemble with the coat and pants does not look very Indian, the cocktail dress definitely is.

Fashion Fairytale: Integrity Toys Convention 2017 part 1 - The Convention Collection

October is the month of the 2017 Integrity Toys convention and of course I will be posting all dolls and information as they become available. First up is the official convention collection, which attendees could either preorder sight unseen with their registration or buy at the convention in the souvenir shop set up within the hotel where the event is taking place. This post presents the convention collection Fashion Royalty and Nu Face dolls, while the Poppies and co. will be featured in the next one. 

IMG_3093.PNG

The convention registration started yesterday for those arriving early and everyone received a mysterious bag containing an empty box that will be the basis of the usual gift set completed day by day throughout the event. No idea yet who the doll will be or what it comes with yet, but people from the convention report that the # number marks her as Nu Face. My general opinion for this collection is that I’m not overwhelmed but am glad to see that the upgrade Doll which was available even to non-attending W Club members is the best of the bunch by far. Let’s try to guess which fairytale inspired each doll.

 

Item # 91424

Natalia Fatalé™ Dressed Doll

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_3045.JPG

Natalia looks gorgeous here, even though her dress is a bit boring. She must be inspired by the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz. The face screening is a dead ringer for Hot Property Natalia.

Item # 91425

Spell of Kindness

Vanessa Perrin™ Dressed Doll

The Fashion Royalty® Collection

The 2017 Integrity Toys Convention: Fashion Fairytale

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_3047.JPG
IMG_3048.JPG

If Natalia is the Wicked Witch, Vanessa is Glinda. The dress looks like a rehash of the Miss Amour Poppy Parker Dior inspired one. Washed Out is the nickname I would give. Looks like she is the Vanessa 1.0 sculpt. If they were going for a Metal Maven feel, it came out more In Bloom. The dress is a Carolina Herrera Resort 2017 gown. Remember they did Oz dolls for IFDC In 2011, with much better results.(Go North Isha / Luchia below):

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_3051.JPG

Beautiful Veronique in her green dress and cape. The leather corset and jewelry make the doll much more interesting. Details that could have helped Vanessa pop up a bit. She does remind me a bit of her Cinematic Convention incarnation.  She must be inspired by the Little Mermaid’s Sea Witch.

IMG_3059.JPG

This the upgrade convention doll that was offered to non attending W Club member as well as convention goers to preorder, based on sketches. I’m happy to say this is the best doll by far. Both her outfits look great, she is a gorgeous doll and the Cruella De Vill inspiration is spot on. She will be shipping to non attendees by the end of the month.

Ayumi Nakamura™ Dressed Doll

The NU. FACE Collection

The 2017 Integrity Toys Convention: Fashion Fairytale

Convention Collection

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_3060.JPG
IMG_3062.JPG

This one must be Mulan inspired. I like the hair ornaments but that’s all. Great face but nothing to write home about. When you take away the ornaments (photo above), she looks really plain.  The colouring of both face and clothes channel the Royal Life convention Criminally Chic Kyori:

Eden Blair™ Dressed Doll

The 2017 Integrity Toys Convention: Fashion Fairytale

Eden is undoubtedly Pocahontas. And her first time in a darker skintone, if I’m not mistaken. She looks like she came out of a Ralph Lauren ad. Great boho styling.

Erin Salston™ Dressed Doll

The NU. FACE Collection

The 2017 Integrity Toys Convention: Fashion Fairytale

IT DIRECT SALESROOM EXCLUSIVE

Edition Size: 600 Dolls

IMG_3068.JPG
IMG_3069.JPG

The Souvenir shop exclusive is another Erin ( did they overproduce the sculpt by mistake and now they flood the market with her?). This one is inspired by Rumpelstiltskin but she’s not winning any gold medals from me. Platinum hair for a doll personifying a fairytale character that spuns gold out of straw? Come on! The leather coat should have had a dark gold shade as well instead of this basic brown. I like the silhouette though.

So what do you think of the convention collection? Which one is your favourite?

Fashion Fairytale: Integrity Toys 2017 convention sold out in record time

It is almost a tradition: Integrity Toys conventions selling out in record time during the advance registration period for W Club members, before becoming available to the general public. No exception this year.  Even with a major technical glitch, all 500 spots were filled faster than you can spell convention. 

IMG_5314.PNG

You can always get on the waiting list of course, as some people do cancel for various reasons. Let's see what this most coveted convention is about this year. 

INTRODUCING...FASHION FAIRYTALETHE 2017 INTEGRITY TOYS CONVENTION

The 2017 Convention will take place during the weekend of October 18-21, 2017 in Orlando, Florida. And what about the theme?


Once upon a time, there were little fashionistas who love to tell a good story and dress the part for it! Always on trend, these girls and boys know how to dress to impress... And they lived fashionably ever after!
Join the characters of Fashion Royalty, Poppy Parker, NU. Face and THE INDUSTRY on a weekend adventure like no other as they are set to explore what dream like style can be, inspiring themselves from well known fairytales and other beloved fantastic stories to truly express their creativity!


What it includes:
For the price of $550.00 US (or $525 if you take advantage of the early bird special, more on that later, read on), you'll get:

  • A welcome bag with a very special giveaway right when you arrive!
  • Two full sit down dinners and a luncheon with highly sought-after swag given out at each event!
  • Opportunity to participate in the "Fashion Bazaar", a salesroom for collectors to sell and swap their own goodies (and just like last year, renting a table is FREE and opened to all registered convention guests)! Also, at the "Fashion Bazaar", guests can enter our annual costume contest and party with our staff!
  • Access to the Integrity Toys Collection display, where you get to see all of those cool dolls in person; this year's display will feature a short trip down memory lane with an exhibit covering some of the highlights of the years of Integrity Toys in business!
  • Access to the IT Direct Souvenir shop, where you can scoop up all of those special and limited edition Integrity Toys convention exclusive collectibles and other great deals, just for convention attendees!
  • The opportunity to take part in exciting and unique workshops!
  • The opportunity to purchase the exclusive convention collection!
  • For W Club Members only, the opportunity to sign-up for the Members-Only luncheon!
  • Exciting raffles with brand new one-of-a-kind dolls created just for the event by the Integrity Toys design team!

In addition to all the things listed above, conventioneers will have access to the following UPDATED convention features!

  • The exclusive opportunity to purchase the brand new revamped STYLE LAB collection featuring the characters from THE INDUSTRY, with a surprise appearance or two by Miss Poppy Parker in a way you've never seen her before!
  • An opportunity for fans with budding design talents to enter our revamped annual design contest, even if you are not attending. (Full information on how this will work will be sent out later this Spring).
  • And last but not least, to celebrate the launch of convention registration, an offer for a very special convention upgrade doll gift set that will be available for everyone, convention goers and non-goers alike! REGISTERED GUESTS WILL GET A SPECIAL ATTENDEE-ONLY DISCOUNT ON THIS NEW UPGRADE DOLL OFFER! (Keep reading for full details below)!
  • And more surprises to be announced later on!

The convention hotel in Orlando will be the Hyatt Regency, with a special,rate available to attendees. If you registered or manage to get on the list, you will get the relative information.

And once again, there is a convention upgrade doll for attendees and non attendees alike.

The Integrity Toys team wanted to do something special for all fans of Fashion Royalty, attending and non-attending alike, and since this year's convention theme promises to be so much fun, the team wanted to start the celebration a little early and give you a glimpse of things to come.
Whether you are able to attend the FASHION FAIRYTALE Convention or not, it is with great pleasure that the W Club is bringing all of its members exclusive access to a chance to pre-order and obtain a limited edition convention exclusive gift set doll.
With this offer, every W Club member will be allowed to pre-order one exclusive convention upgrade gift set per membership until Monday, April 3rd, 2017 at noon Eastern time (New York time). Just like our other official W Club exclusive offerings, there is no set edition size at this time for this doll; the final production quantity will be determined by the total amount of pre-orders received by the deadline. This is an added surprise bonus for Club members that is not counted as one of the five (5) W Club exclusives they were promised at registration.

Making a marked return to the FR Collection in the porcelain skin tone, Tatyana is a 12.5-inch fashion doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. This gift set includes mix-and-match pieces to create several looks: a faux-leather, laser-cut "natural edge" skirt, a Dalmatian printed blouse, a luxurious faux-fur coat with bright red lining, a long black satin skirt and separate black satin top. Set includes two pairs of pumps and a red hot cigarette holder. This set will come packaged in a carry case and will include a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.
Preview sketches only- the final production details of this doll are subject to modification. The actual doll will be revealed closer to convention.

Of course the inspiration is Cruella De Vil, so you get an idea of how the convention theme will be fleshed out. The sketches are by Jason Kramer and the outfits design is by Jason Wu.  I am so preordering this one! As can all 2017 W Club members: they will be allowed to pre-order one (1) gift set per membership, whether they are attending the 2017 Integrity Toys convention or not! More details will become available on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017.

REMINDER TO ALL CONVENTION ATTENDEES:

This is an optional upgrade doll. Whether you opt to purchase this or not, the convention package will still include the usual souvenirs and optional convention collection, which will be announced approximately later this Spring when the registration package is released.

So, did you get confirmed for the convention? Are you getting the upgrade doll? Let me know in the comments.
