IT Gloss Convention Thursday Haul and Thoughts From a Distance

It is tough having a proxy...I miss being there horribly. And it is sort of exhausting super-stalking everyone on flickr and the boards for info. But it was the more sensible way to get the swag this year (not wanting to leave the wee lad for the long weekend).

The 2014 Integrity Toys Convention: Gloss
Limited Edition of 500 Dolls and 500 Accessory Packs

I believe this doll is on a Poppy Parker high heel foot body (last seen at IFDC) and is a part of the ITBE line.  This is the first Erin/Collette sculpt.  I think she is super cute but I am not sure I will keep her.  I will definitely be keeping the outfit because I think it will fit in perfectly with the Urban Safari fashions from the recent dolls.

Couture Sewing Behind the Scenes....

Watch this video...

So this is amazing...and I do a great deal of these same steps and techniques when I make a wedding dress for someone...and also when I make costumes.  All of that tedious thread tracing even. I only WISH I had that amazing pleater thingy though.  Hopefully this gives some insight as for why custom made garments cost you lots of mullah...

It also makes me want to wear a labcoat at work.

Fashion sleuthing. ..FR Urban Safari

So I think I might have found some of the design inspiration for the recent  Urban Safari lineup from Integrity Fashion Royalty in the Spring 2011 Gucci designs. I don't know if anyone had found these already. If so then I was not aware.   There is an orange dress very similar to Elise, a vest outfit like Desert Sands Kyori, and a cropped vest with corset number a lot like High Visibility Agnes. I also spotted seam and laced eyelet details on a skirt. You can see more photos in my Urban Safari board on Pinterest.

New York Comic Con~Lady Action~Wonder Woman 52 and Supergirl Costumes for $99

I believe this is the Captain Action booth #341...According to a another website, they are seeling the Wonder Woman 52 outfit for $99 or the outfit/Lady Action set for $199...which is a swell deal if that means the outfit plus the doll.  I have yet to find confirmation that this Wonder Woman 52 outfit will come with a wig or not.  So it is a mystery.

The Supergirl outfit looks so much like the original DC Stars Supergirl...I am not sure I even care to get it.  The wig looks nice, but I have never been a big wig doll fan.  I can't tell from the photos if the boots have a heel on them. The biggest difference in the outfits is in the gold belt and gold edging on the boots.  part of me wants to be a Supergirl completist and just get it....

Info on the outfit:

So. ..yee haw? Not for me. I will be saving my money for Integrity Convention and a potential trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal.  But collectors have been begging for something out west for years now.  So good for them.
