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!
These fashion packs are just the cutest. I think my current favorite is the Twin Stars shirt that comes in the single pack (pictured on Lilac Mood Changers Poppy). The skirt in My Melody complete outfit (pictured on Gigi) is HUGE...I have it pinned in the back on Gigi and it is about an inch too big. I am planning to take it in permanently. *PICK A SIZE MATTEL* I am finally see these in Target now and Walmart has some of them on their website now for order (though mostly out of stock).
The Care Bears packs are popping up in stores but I don't think I will hunt for them. I might try for a couple of the nintendo offerings when they hit the stores. I am definitely psyched for the DC Comics packs that are hopefully coming out this year. The individual shirts look so cute. I hope there are complete look outfits too.
After what felt like a torturous wait time, we finally see the 2018 Upgrade dolls for the W Club! Integrity has informed us that they have changed the way the shopping cart works which will most directly impact overseas members who would combine shipping between several members in order to save money overall. Now members who want to continue this practice have to form a 'club gang' with a main ring leader running the gang account and putting in all the orders. I don't envy them and this new obstacle for collecting but I do understand the logistical nightmare that the prior ordering methods caused for IT and club liaisons. The new cart system will also make 'takeovers' trickier. I think this might be a good thing. I am hoping it will make everyone (including me) be more thoughtful when ordering exclusives and entering in lotteries. ***Only order what you love people!*** Takeovers will still be possible but will require the original buyer to complete the sale and t…
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.
