IT Convention 2017 and the Year so far in My Doll World: There will be blood...

Image
The bloodletting has begun. Hold your credit card out in sacrifice to the doll overlords. There will be no mercy. You will want them all and do anything to get them. Maybe a little dramatic...? But sometimes doll collecting feels like a high stakes, cut throat death race (*cough* trouble eden ebay prices). It seems like every year I swear that I will cut back only to give in again and get bled dry.

In case you missed it (and if you missed it...then you REALLY missed it), the IT Fashion Fairytales Convention registration went on sale last Sunday.  Much tears and sweat and cursing were had by all who tried (and tried and tried and tried) to register.  The 500 spots sold out in record time and the process was riddled with server errors and time-outs evidently caused by a naughty member using bots or something high tech and jerk-like.  I sadly cannot go this year because the final saturday of the convention is the exact same day as one of my first dress rehearsal (le sigh). Luckily I hav…

Reckless Twin Surprise!

W Club just offered a bonus surprise to members that probably resulted in a collective "squee" heard round the world.  We got the chance to enter for the Eden Trouble doll and at only 700...people were considering mad voodoo to ensure that they get her. (I was one of them...I don't have style mantra Eden and I WANTS THIS ONE...MY PRECIOUS!) I ended up with three memberships this year (long story)...so here's hoping one of those memberships will score me this girl.

The surprise was that IT decided to give all members the right to buy Smoke and Mirrors Lillith, created to keep club members that don't win Lillith from rising up in anger. I think I might even like her a bit better...but of course I still want Eden.  I'm tempted to get two because I would like to give her an ombre effect perhaps.

New Industry Dolls from IT

I'm running a but behind on ye olde blog due to ye olde life.  So here is some old news...

Dave Buttry's Industry line has debuted. I was pretty excited about the line after the super adorbs giftset we got at the 2016 Supermodel Convention.  The initial promises of a variety of ages also had me interested.  The reality was a little lacking for me, mostly because of the blah color palette.  Yes, I know black is always fashionable, but I prefer a bit more color...or at least some pops of color mixed with the funereal blackathon. I guess when I heard a variety of age ranges...I, like most, thought Grace Coddington or Anna Wintour...not a doll in her thirties (gasp....SO OLD). Le sigh.  Hopefully a silver dragon lady is coming later.  For now you can always use the older Coven ladies for your bitchy fashion editor character. I still live in hope that Integrity will add a full figure sculpt to its lineups soon.  And again...where are the AA characters? The makeup artist...totally …
