2018 FR Capsule Collection: Boudoir. Yowza.

Well, it's almost April and my dolly resolve is crumbling a bit. Integrity just surprised us with a capsule collection of Fashion Royalty Ladies rocking lingerie. Designed by Jessy Ayala, three dolls are available from dealers and two as lottery exclusives. The "close-up" dolls retail for $125 and have really low edition sizes. Most are likely sold out from dealers...but one might try couture dolls as they often list things later. The holiday weekend might also mess with ordering too...so have faith and maybe you will find one. I managed to resist all but one: Dasha. I currently only have the Anika version of Dasha (whom I love dearly) and this new version is winning it for me.   I think people are considering homicide in order to get a chance at lottery Vamp Agnes.


Thoughts below in blue:

I've yet to warm up to the Isha 1.0 sculpt. The lingerie gorgeous though. Pretty hair color too.

The Story:
In her delicate, red-hot lingerie set, fashion leader Véronique Perrin sets the tone as she channels seductresses from days past! Offering tons of re-dress possibilities, this fantastic close-up doll is the perfect glamour puss for your collection!

  • 12" fully articulated doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes
  • Fashion (Bustier with garter belts and matching panties)
  • Red gloves
  • Red thigh-high stockings
  • Red pumps
  • Jewelry (Earrings, bracelet and necklace)

I love the red hair and short waves. Her makeup is gorgeous with the slightest hint of the "i'll cut you" look that I associate with this sculpt. The shorter hairstyles seem to be more rare even though I find them so much more versatile and work for both modern and vintage looks. Plus that dog. I'm a sucker for a dog accessory. I also like the color of the lingerie.

I was happily confirmed for her and I'm feeling pretty chuffed about it. She seems to be the surprise favorite and the first to sell out from dealers. I know I was trying to skip mainline dolls this year in favor of club only dolls but...well...shhhh. I also did not get my hands on the Metamorphosis Erin (I was on the waitlist but did not get lucky)...so there's that.

Adele is stunning (as always). I'm always a fan of the Adele 2.0 sculpt. I am surprised at another Adele on the heels of the amazing Faces of Adele 2017 Club doll though. The platinum hair is very pretty with this new skin tone.

Agnes, as always, slays. She looks great in this skin tone and would look swell paired with Nightfall from the 2013 convention. The low edition size for this W Club lottery doll has folks sweating. Seriously they likely would have sold out 1000 dolls without any trouble and still had people trying to scratch eyes out for her. Le sigh. I remain a little undecided right now. I like her but not sure I need her...but maybe if I got her I could trade her for Erin?  Hmmm....
