The Waiting Game...

Image
So it's been more than two weeks now, and still no tracking number for my pre-ordered convention collection and style lab from Integrity. The waiting is brutal. I know that this is a possibility when I pre-order to be shipped to my home after the con; however, the discount combined with not having to deal with the hassle of shipping things home is normally worth it.  I try not to be a complainer...but this is getting to be a little ridiculous.  I mean how hard is it to send an email saying..."hey girl, we know you want your dolls...but keep your pants on...we got a delay".

Ugh. I had to pour a tumbler of three buck chuck just to write this post. So in the absence of my new dolls, I impulse purchased the Coven Marie Laveau doll after seeing some promising IRL photos on Flickr. She looks pretty nice. It seems that I am going to cave and get some more of the other dolls too.  I already have a deal for a split on Madison...but I might need a second one so I can have a Chan…

IT Supermodel Convention Style Lab "Too Funky"

Unlike previous years, it seems the ladies were way more popular than the gents.  I still don't have mine in hand yet but I have a few ideas about who will be staying and who will be going. I picked up Jaeme and the Poison outfit at convention because I was so wild about them and wanted to be sure I got a good one. The dolls did not come with stands this year.  Not a problem for me since I use kaiser stands normally.

Overall I think the fashions were pretty great. The women's looks especially.  I was sad to see no Asian sculpts and I was also really hoping for a dark AA woman with flocked hair a la model Alex Wek. Le sigh.

FINALLY! AHS Coven Dolls by Integrity Toys Revealed!

Finally...nearly two years later (at least it feels that way). I think it is really strange that they skipped Misty and Cordelia though.  Misty is many people's favorite. I might just make my own. I think the sculpts are interesting but a little hit and miss in the likeness department. Likenesses at this scale are tricky. When bad they can kill a doll; when good, they can be a little creepy. The reaction seems mixed to these. I pre-ordered Myrtle Snow. I might try to get Madison later and an extra Myrtle.

IT Supermodel Convention Roundup

I was really pleased with the haul from this year's convention. I think it might have been my favorite yet. I think I am keeping more than I usually do...which is dangerous.

Tulabelle™ / THE INDUSTRY Dressed Doll Gift Set
Official Convention Welcome Set
The 2016 Integrity Toys SUPERMODEL Convention
Limited Edition of 500 Gift Sets
I love everything about this set. So super cute. I even picked up some dynamite girls clothes to mix with these clothes. I have an extra set for sale if you are looking for her. The packaging is also so cute. I had not planned to get into the Industry line...oh well. at convention they said the line would include dolls of many ethnicities, shapes, and ages. Interesting. I'm wondering if they will reuse the Coven sculpts to make older characters? Hmmm.
They switched things up and had the Poppy event on Thursday night.  Poppy definitely deserved prime time. David Butry gave us teaser images of next year's collection: Poppy g…

Well it has been a week...I am just finally catching up on sleep from the post convention hangover. I got two boxes that I shipped to myself but still no collection or style lab pre-order box from Integrity.

I thought this doll looked way better in person. The shoes are amazing. I'm not a Vero sculpt fan though and I don't do ball gowns.
