Updates! Finally!


It's been a long, long time since I'd updated this blog!  Sorry it's been so long.

I've added all the new 2014 dolls.  On top of that, I've put a search bar on the right-hand side of the page, to make it easier to look for a specific doll.

I'm afraid I will no longer be updating the eye chart.  There have been so many new eye screenings added since last year that it's now become too confusing, even for me.   There are now several dolls in the 2014 collection where I can't figure out whether they're using a new eye screening, or just one of the older eye screenings.  Ack! 

Hugs!

Glamorous Darling Poppy Parker - IFDC exclusive

IFDC convention exclusive for 2014
Original price: $175
Limited Edition of 300
July 2014

There were three Poppy Parker dolls produced for 2014's IFDC convention: a blonde, a brunette and a redhead.  They sported new eye screenings that had never been used before.  They also used a modified Poppy Parker body: the torso and arms were the same as the regular body, but the feet had been changed to be high-heeled.  As a result, the feet will fit into Dynamite Girls shoes, but not the usual Poppy Parker shoes.  

After the convention, a small number of these dolls were offered in a lottery to W Club members.

Joyous Celebration Poppy Parker

W Club exclusive for 2014
Original price: $120
Limited Edition of ?
Expected shipping date:  Fall 2014

Joyous Celebration was a club exclusive released for the fifth anniversary of the Poppy Parker line. 

She had dark brunette hair in a tight braided bun on top of her head, and used the Caucasian/FR white skintone.  Her eyes were blue and left-glancing, with golden eyeshadow and applied eyelashes. 

She had similar coloring and the same eye screening as the Bergdorf Goodman Poppy ("Fashion's Night Out") from 2010.  This was probably intentional, as the Bergdorf Poppy sold out fast and became one of the most sought-after Poppys of all time, commanding extremely high prices on the secondary market.  (Over $1,000.)  Fans had been requesting a Poppy similar to Bergdorf for years, and it seems that Integrity Toys responded by producing Joyous Celebration.

She came with long white gloves, elaborate rhinestone dangle earrings,  a rhinestone bracelet, a pink clutch purse and pink pumps with bows on them.
