Original Jem Cartoon Wardrobe Collection

So I have been a bit obsessed lately with the upcoming Jem dolls from Integrity.  I cannot stop thinking about them and all the clothes that I want to make for these suckers.  I have been watching old episodes and scouring the interwebs for truly outrageous research.  During the hunt, I found an amazing website from Pranceton. On that site is an amazing compendium of all the outfits seen on EVERY episode of the cartoon as well as a comparison to the produced Hasbro outfits.

Needless to say,  I lost an hour of my life staring at it last night.  It is amazing and I forgot how awesome so many of the original fashions were.  I especially love all the Rockabilly punk Misfits outfits.  So much fun.  Encore is still my fav.  But Like a Dream is a close second...

Come on, come on and be a Jem girl....

Jem dolls secured...everyone can breathe...

So thankfully...I managed to score the Jem dolls from the wonderful Gigi & Sherry's!  I just got the whole set.  I think they are a little overpriced for what they are in terms of the fashions....but I so want to have them.  I cannot wait to sew for them and recreate my favorite fashions from the show.  I am hoping to score some of the Color Infusion fashion packs from the Tropicalia convention for them...assuming that there are any left over to be offered to the W Club.  *fingers crossed*

Investigate the old fashions on Totally Jem!  My personal favs are Encore & Like a Dream.

I made this Wedding Dress....Lizzy
