DC Bombshells Sewing Patterns!
Just got back from a quick run to ye olde Jo of Ann...and found three new costume patterns for Bombshell Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl! They are adorable...and patterns were on sale for $1.99...so they jumped into my basket. I might actually make Wonder Woman's blouse as I would totally wear that.
They also had a pattern for old school Joker and from the Marvel side of the nerd-verse...a cool Deadpool costume pattern!
Integrity just wowed Jem fans with one last request...a final farewell Jem and Glitter & Gold Shana and Aja dolls. This was totally unexpected and a really amazing gift for club members. Again, Jem fans that did not join this year must be really crying because these dolls are exclusive to club members only. We only have the cartoon art to go by and we won't see the dolls until the fall. I bought two of each of the holograms and only one of Jem. I have multiple memberships so I went ahead and speculated that I would at least be able to sell the extra set for what I paid and help a non-club member out. I might make a custom outfit to add with the set or something. I am hoping that Aja and Shana have better hair than the first versions or a variation in makeup style. I plan to do an up-do with one of them.
I could care less about the Glitter and Gold fashions. They were never my favorite and I rarely display the Jem dolls in "on stage" mode. I might sell them off.…
Oh the joy and sadness...the Jem doll line by Integrity is reaching the end. Yesterday IT revealed the prototype images for Glitter 'n Gold Aja & Shana and the Farewell Jem dolls. Still no images for the the bonus Kimber and Raja fashions that will come with the set though. I have also heard there might be a surprise accessory for Jem...have no idea what that is though. The dolls like nice though. I am especially pleased with Shana's hair. Not sure I love the style on Aja but it is pretty accurate to the cartoon. The hair color seems a bit brighter to me than the first release. I am not sure what is up with Jem's face...either it is not a great picture or there is something wonky about this face up. Generally these dolls have always looked better in hand so I have faith she will be awesome.

I can't be the only one experiencing some Poppy fatigue this year. I believe we are currently at 20 dolls (and counting) revealed so far in 2017. Oye. Now lucky for me, I have only bought a few for the clothing and sent them on their nekkid merry little way. I think only the ash blonde Style Lab convention poppy has remained in my house (Rainbow has not left her box yet...still haven't decided on her) and the British Invasion will stick around too. I skipped the latest Christmas (but not in time for Christmas) Golden Holdiday Poppy club doll and was feeling pretty confident in my willpower to ignore this second round. But of course, the latest offering is killer once again. I'm a monkey on crack.
