The fifth and final W Club doll revealed for 2018

The late start of the 2018 W Club year meant that we got the W Club doll releases crammed into the six last months of it. Hopefully the next year will be a bit more streamlined. This meant that members of the club got the notification for their last W Club offering in late January. The fifth and final Club doll is Eugenia, missing from the main collection so far, which should be welcome news to everyone. Jessy Ayala designed this doll, with only accessories and small details connecting her to Sacred Lotus and the Luxe Life Convention Collection.

A very beautiful doll to end the year. She’s not groundbreaking or different from older releases, but she’s a lovely doll with gorgeous clothes and lots of accessories, justifying the price tag. Even though generally I preferred the earthy and dark tones of Sacred Lotus dolls versus the eighties pink/blue ones of Luxe Life, in this case I would have gone for the latter.

IMG_7895.PNG

Another peeve: black gown. We’ve had big black gowns in the past (even though I own none of them). The fashion runways are filled with bright or pastel coloured big frilly gowns - check out the recent couture shows for Spring 2019. Why black? Just think how much better this would look in blue, fuchsia, yellow or green. Or even a lightweight print muslin. And enough with the tan trench coat! Give us one in an unexpected colour, like white, lilac, pink or lemon! Or olive green!

IMG_7896.PNG

It’s the kind of choices and details that distinguish a properly trained and educated experienced designer from a talented but still-findin-my-way-one. Merely copying runway looks does not help in forwarding your work by itself. Studying and researching needs to be constant and thorough. Even if, accidentally, you score the summer garden thread of the Couture collections now held in Paris. And yes, I did preorder the doll. She’s a keeper. But she could have been a holy grail.

Price: £480.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

IMG_4393.JPG

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.

 

CRYSTAL CRUNCH

 OUT OF STOCK

Price: £300.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

IMG_4394.JPG

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.

GILT MILK

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

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.

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.

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.

Agnes Von Weiss™ Dressed Doll

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.

Happy Holidays from Superdoll - with four outfits fit for celebrating!

Superdoll have four new outfits available for Sybarite dolls, holiday themed, just in time for the season's festivities. If you buy them all together, you even get a discount. You can shop here. They are all heavily decorated and frilly. I think my favourite one is Emerald Oyster but if Bitter Pill had no beading, I'd go with that one. 


ETIOLE SYB/770 Price: £120.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

I'm guessing this should have been named Etoile (star in French). A column of black guipure lace lined in nude. The hemline and décolletage have an intricate border design in the "classic" Superdoll temple design. Upon this column is a large star of baguette and pin-dot "diamonds" which holds yet releases a huge flowing train of black organza. Accessories include beaded spiderette neck-piece, hose and slip on towering perspex heels.





DREAMSCAPE SYB/768 Price: £120.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Lined in old rose pink, this voluminous gown of iridescent sequin has a side bust, with a swirl of pale organza swooping and rolling asymmetrically down the gown to the hemline. This burst of organza is held in place with a multitude of corded vines & poinsettia contrasting rose. Atop each "bloom" sits a tiny pile of sequins, pearls and diamanté. Accessories include a Superdoll "classic" headpiece, hose and slip-on towering perspex heels.





EMERALD OYSTER SYB/769 Price: £120.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Lined in nude, this is a flowering leatherette big statement of a gown. It has a straight neck satin bodice on mini corded straps adorned in "diamonds" & "emeralds", that give the illusion of a Superdoll staple, the reverse neck. To further trick the eye, the under-bust of this gown is set with a guipure lace motif adorned with further "emeralds". Accessories include opera length gloves, hose and slip on towering perspex heels.





BITTER PILL SYB/767 Price: £140.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Organza cascading and undulating around a column. The bodice and underskirt are accent by a hot pink satin bow at the waist which convulses into the most dramatic of overskirts. It mixes everything from gleaming turquoise to unusually hot pink accent matte "pearls". Accessories include classic Superdoll gold leaf plume and bow headpiece, hose and slip on towering perspex heels.
