Her eyeshadows in the spectrum of turquoise and smoke surround her eyes of translucent chocolate with lids of muted sepia, eyes those of golden amber. Lips of dark rich red.
Her multi piece ensemble; a confection of chocolate satin hot pants and a corset dripping in beads is the foundation of her 'look'. Accompanied by a matching satin bolero trimmed in metallic matte gold rice beads and seeds and spectacular guipure finds.
Inque loves drama and for this she selected a fur wrap inset with feathers; just to get her silhouette going!
Always accessorised to the point of envy, Inque has an indiscreet set of fabulous faux fur condiments; consisting ankle & knee pads, fur balls to her foot and totally uncomfortable stiletto heeled courts in a chocolate brown with broad ankle ribbons!

Price: £35.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Collectors have been asking for more varied sculpts and Superdoll has heard them. In this offering we have Inque, Voltaire and Venus. Certainly something for every Sybarite lover and all three for many.

As happens so often, the princess-type dolls are the first to sell out. Vushka is sold out. What I like best about her is her wig. While her gown is lovely, it's just not special enough. I can see that the crown and sceptre belong to her.

Kumalo is my personal favorite and I was lucky to get one. She is quite different from the faces on the dolls currently in my collection. When I saw her close-up three days ago, I was hooked. I tried to resist but it was futile. I'm glad I didn't wait too long. I think she will look amazing posed along with Forest.

There are some aspects about Rio that I do not like at all. Sorry to say that includes her face and costume. It does not come across as fashion at all but rather as unfinished toreador glitz. I'm sure that she will look lovely once redressed and rewigged; however, she's just not my cup of tea.

When will we see pierced ears on the GenX dolls? C'mon Superdoll, give us some openings for our own earrings!

These would be very cute paired with the skirts that are on sale but I wish they would have shown some on on a doll.

I don't understand why Baronne is still available. I look at mine very often and think she's a delight. Her face is beautiful and her wig is adorable. She is much prettier in person than in the photos.



Integrity Toys "Dolly Days"

W Club members were offered five opportunities to spend money beginning on 11/27 and ending on 12/1.  This week long event was called "Dolly Days."  
On Monday, which was also Cyber Monday in the real world, they held a sale of all in-stock items which consisted of replacement doll bodies, older Style Lab dolls and fashions, ITBE dolls, Color Infusion, Katy Keene and AHS: Coven dolls, < MLP, Victoire Roux and select The Industry Dolls. Included as well were select Fashion Royalty and IFDC  2016 dolls,  Jem and The Holograms and a few warehouse finds.
There is still a load of stuff in the Integrity on-line store which is available to the public here:

The Second Day was all about Poppy Parker.
There were three dolls to pre-order from doll dealers and one IT direct via right-to-buy lottery which will take place next March. (Positively Plaid.) This last one is going to be available to 2018 members only so why show it to 2017 members? That is a rhetorical question.

Here are the dolls:

$130 Friday Night Frug

$160 Where It's At

$130 Hold That Tiger

$130  Positively Plaid
I decided a bit too late that I like Hold That Tiger. It's completely sold out everywhere. If anyone who has a pre-order for her and is willing to transfer it to me, please let me know.

Wednesday was the last Jem and The Holograms collection offering. I won't miss them.

Shana Elmsford  On-Stage Mini-Giftset 

$150 AJA Leith On-Stage Mini-Giftset

$130 Jem  This is Farewell 

Thursday New bodies were revealed. All were priced at $35. plus shipping.

I know some collectors are not happy that the low torso joint has been eliminated. That is not an issue for me as I lost a lot underwear as a result of said underwear getting caught in that joint.  

It's too bad they waited so long to upgrade the Poppy Parker body so she could have a no-ankle-joint look. This is the body I wanted all along as I felt the ankle joint interfered with her overall pretty looks.

On Friday they finally released an interesting Fashion Royalty offering. This set consists of three heads with busts. Each head is an Adele sculpt from the first through the third.
I'm tempted but I only like the original head from this set. I am a big fan of the Adele 2.0 (the blonde) but I think this particular one is not as attractive as she could be.
The Faces of Adele is $200. plus postage. You get one full body and to additional busts with heads and all the clothing and accessories seen below. For an additional $30. you get two sets of body parts seen by scrolling down.

Of course, the more I look at it, the more I want it. Sigh. I suppose I could just keep Adele 1.0 and sell everything else...unless they look better in person. I wish 2.0 and 3.0 were wearing wigs.

From the offering:
At the W Club, we always try to think about what the collectors' feedback might be on each offering and anticipate as many needs as we can, as well as create solutions when we are able to. While "The Faces of Adèle" is meant to be a quick switch set & while each of the busts/portraits included with the set can be easily switched on the included body by simply disconnecting the arms and lower torso, we know that many collectors will still want 3 separate dolls. So, we spoke to Integrity and got approval to offer you an optional "Body Completer" pack sold separately that includes two sets of arms (with hands attached) and two lower torsos with legs attached, that will allow you to assemble all three dolls in this gift set into complete dolls for the added low price of only $30 + S & H per set!
Again, this is an optional offering. If you complete the dolls, they will no longer be able to use the Museum Podium Stand, which is designed specifically to display one doll and 2 busts, not 3 complete dolls. This extra offer is not directly part of the initial gift set and is only being offered as courtesy.
A deposit of $15 is required now to pre-order this body completer pack (these are not full replacement bodies) and 1 optional body completer pack per membership is allowed. You will be contacted to pay the remaining $15 balance closer to their arrival at the warehouse. Otherwise, the same timing and procedures as listed above apply. 

$30. for both.

This has been a great year for Adele Makeda in my collection. I like the styling and the beautiful fashions of the first two dolls below and I like the innovation of the giftset. 

Exquisite Adele - Coming soon, I  hope.

Poppy Parker's Swinging London trip is coming to an end and while she still has one more fashion show to do before she heads back to New York, her friends at the London agency invited her at a very "Mod" holiday party to ring-in the new year ahead! But, what's a girl to wear for such a groovy event? Poppy decided to go gold and she's glad that she did; the fabulous Mod Holiday Tree that decorated the hall felt like it was just waiting for her to arrive!
Poppy Parker is a total feast for the eyes this holiday with her golden threads! 12-inches tall and completely articulated, Poppy has lush, fully rooted hair and delicately hand-applied eyelashes! Dressed elegantly to ring-in the new year in her own unique Mod way, our favorite teenage model wears a slim-fit, floor length white and gold gown, complimented by long triangular chandelier earrings that perfectly match the "pyramid" pattern on her dress. Poppy also comes with elegant open-toe heels, three bracelets, a golden clutch purse and three holiday gift boxes for her friends!  For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Note: The doll and the tree are sold separately. The miniature gift boxes are included with the doll, as pictured below. Please note that the doll pictured in the photo is a prototype and as always, final production colors and textures may vary slightly.

Metrodolls Event "A Novel Romance" Benefiting The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind

It's not an easy choice to decide what to talk about first, the charity or the luncheon. So I'll reference the charity now.

The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind

Mrs. Linda Newton and her husband came to the event with Marchon, Linda's guide dog. I asked and was permitted to interact with Marchon. I got down to the dog's level and put my face near her. She gently sniffed my face all around from ear to ear and then I kissed her on the head. I felt like crying for some reason. She was so gentle and I felt the love flowing from her - or was it me? Doesn't matter. It was a wonderful experience.
Linda addressed the attendees with a talk about her own experiences as a blind person and with guide dogs. Marchon is her fourth. She teaches at the Foundation. In addition, Linda and her charming, sighted husband, have raised four sons! Wow. We were all moved by this delightful and powerful woman.

The Convention Doll
A Novel Romance refers to the Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon. If you haven't read the books, put aside a few months and dig in. You won't be sorry.
The souvenir doll is the first from Robert Tonner of his new Outlander line. She is "Garden Encounter Claire."
In the book, Claire and Jamie are in Paris visiting Versailles. Claire runs into her most hated foe, Captain Randall.

With Claire in this first photo above is her beloved Jamie. 
You can see how not thrilled she is in the next photo. 

Here is Robert Tonner's interpretation of the fashion and the character. I think he got the fashion perfectly; her face, not so much. I do hope it's possible to produce a better look for Claire as she is not as plain as the doll looks. 

The Centerpiece Doll 's look was taken from a gown worn by a character in Tolstoy's Anna Karenina.
Miriam Shephard O'Mahoney designed and created the gorgeous gowns.

The Auction Merchandise:
Beautiful and varied dolls, fashions, props and accessories were donated to Metrodolls for the benefit of the charity. There were 25 items for the open auction.
A good deal of money was donated outside of these items. Including other donations the total is about $22,000. That is fantastic.

Here is the list and the amount that was raised by each item.

Here are most of the photos, not necessarily in the order as printed above. 

My absolute favorites were:

#4 A OOAK Mods Doll in a fashion designed and created by Tom Courtney. 

#7 Bashette's Day Bed with Accessories. I liked it so much, I bid and won it. 

#17 Kingdom Doll Helen in a Monaeglow gown. 

#12 Kadira. 

#19 Pidgin Doll. Amazing! 

I would have wanted to go home with #16 Michael Giunta's "Midas Touch" and #24 YumYum Couture's "Innocence." 

You can click on each photo to enlarge.

There were silent auctions (purple bags) and helper raffles (pink bags.) I was not lucky. :-(

Another wall was lined with dealers' goods for sale. Everything was a feast for the eyes!
Jeff Lega offered a mix of vintage and modern dolls from Lynn Fenstermacher's collection.

Sandra Stillwell displayed her beautiful products which caused a lot of mouth-watering gazing.

Could you just die?

Michelle Hodge accompanied Tonner's new Annora and a few other dolls.

 Jackie Cranston was selling fashions.

No event would be complete without Facet's Boutique by Marcia.

Ed Ferris displayed dolls to sell.

Finally, Metrodolls itself had a sales table. Manning it and looking very manly in his formal kilt uniform, was Eddie Haley.

Robert Tonner gave a talk and showed slides depicting his new method of designing dolls on the computer. I always look forward to and enjoy his talks. There have been a few times I heard the same talk more than once and still laughed at his jokes.

More photos for your viewing pleasure. The first photo was taken by someone other than myself.
