Poppy Parker in Swinging London: Part One

This year's Poppy collection is being split into two waves. For the 'gotta have everything' collectors, this lets them have some time to save up for a second wave of dolls...or rather stretches out their torturous wait for months and then drops the first wave right before the convention followed by the second wave right after convention in time for the holidays. Because really...does my actually NEED more toys for Christmas? I mean priorities, right?

I had high expectations for this line and I like some of it, but happily, I did not NEED most of it. I am currently really pleased with the dolls that I have already and the Industry dolls are doing a land grab on Poppy territory in the wild wild west know as Detolf. I also don't have the room to expand and none of these make me want to replace one of the versions that I already own. Honestly, these dolls really did not have a chance when compared to the utter perfection of Big Eyes and Kicks! That being said, I still pre…

IT Jem Line Ends with an Accessory Pack & Sophisticated Lady Duo

I think IT got tired of the rampant and wild speculation about the final two offerings in the Jem they finally put us out of our misery. The Sophisticated Lady gift set looks pretty swell. I am very excited to get a Jerrica with a smiling Jem head. I also like the outfit choices. I am sad the line is ending though my wallet will be happy. It is a HUGE bummer that we are not getting another Shana or Aja. I was wildly disappointed that one of the final four was BLOODY WEDDING KIMBER!  I cannot think of a single doll that I wanted LESS.  Ugh. I still live in hope that they will just release some nude dolls at the very least. If not I might try to hunt down the sculpts from the Style labs and just make another custom version.

Happily for my etsy store and custom outfits, I can now make things knowing that IT will not be making an official version.  I will be making quite a few new outfits this summer.

The sneak peaks we got of the accessory pack looks like we are getting a play…

W Club Upgrade Riviera Drama Agnes Revealed

I waffled a bit about pre-ordering this doll sight unseen but she turned out to be pretty stunning. I was hoping that the jumpsuit was going to be turquoise or coral. I am not sure if I am in love with this fashion in this color but I like the purse and shoes. The screening on the doll is nice. She looks a lot like Intimate Reveal (whom I adore) and has that "Bitch I will cut you!" look about her. The hair looks a bit like a helmet...and hopefully can get softer without getting too frizzy. I think I will decide on whether she stays or goes once she is in hand. Happily it looks like many wclub collectors are regretting that they skipped her (what's the doll equivalent of FOMO?  FOMD?). So I expect she won't be difficult to sell or trade.
