Vamp Agnes Von Weiss

The Story:
Agnes Von Weiss is one of, if not the most controversial characters of the world of Fashion Royalty!

Friends have already commented on how much softer the face-ups are on these girls compared to normal, and I agree. I am not a huge fan of lingerie dolls but I really do like each of their faces, particularly Dasha. I also love Dasha’s short hair and little doggie! I think Jessy hit the nail on the head with his glamorous vintage-inspired pin-up designs.

So who is your favourite Boudoir girl? Have you pre-ordered? Do let me know in the comments section below.

Faces Of Adèle Adèle Makéda Dressed Doll Gift Set The Fashion Royalty Collection

Faces Of Adèle – 4th W Club 2017 Exclusive Adèle Makéda Gift Set Unveiled

Talk about saving the best for last! The final day of the this year’s Integrity Toys W Club Dolly Days event saw the unveiling of the fourth Exclusive W Club doll of 2017, and this Adèle Makéda Faces Of Adèle Gift Set certainly does not disappoint! In fact, this isn’t just one doll but three dolls as, thanks to the Quickswitch mechanism, she can transform into any of her three sculpts.

In a departure from the usual Quickswitch at the neck, this doll will switch at the upper torso and will feature both the FR 6.0 Bust and the NU.Face 3.0 Bust. The complete set can be displayed using the new ‘Museum Podium Doll Stand’. Faces Of Adèle also includes 2 outfits, lingerie, 1 pair of boot, 2 pairs of shoes, and jewellery!

This is the first time that Fashion Royalty stalwart Adèle has been produced as a Club Exclusive. The Faces Of Adèle gift set was designed by rising Integrity Toys star designer, Jessy Ayala and has reportedly been in production for quite some time. Well, it was worth it and I am very excited to be able to order this set and have all three of Adele’s incarnations!

Without further ado, feast your eyes on all the amazing photos below.

The beautiful Adèle Makéda is a 12.5-inch fully articulated fashion doll that comes with not one, but three different sculpts that encompass the various incarnations of the character through the years. Each head features hand-applied eyelashes and has either fully rooted or velvety soft flocked hair (on Adèle version 1.0) depending on the case. As the bodies feature removable parts, you can swap out Adèle’s look by removing her bust (instead of having to remove the head, solely).

A gorgeous electric pink gown that suits her lovely skin tone to a “T”, an intricately designed daytime dress that features ultra-chic, modern graphic embroideries and a lingerie set that includes two different bras to better display the busts elegantly on the newly developed “Museum Podium” stand are also included with this set. But, best of all, this set also includes all the amazing little extras that you have come to expect from an Integrity Toys gift set- long boots, two pairs of shoes and two complete jewelry sets- just what you will need to make this fashionista look perfectly stylish over and over again! A W Club members-only exclusive.

So, you know how this set is three in one? Well, you can literally have three dolls by ordering the extra body sets on offer for $30! Yes, just $30 dollars extra and you will have THREE complete Adeles! Take my money, now!

Shoes, handbag and jewelry complete the look for even more pop!


When I received the email this morning, all bleary-eyed after waiting up as long as I could for it last night (it arrived at 03:45 UK time!), I wasn’t so sure about these dolls. I was expecting something more glam and evening for the last leg of Poppy’s London jaunt. However, now I have had time to study them I really like all of them!

So, what do you think of these girls? Have you pre-ordered any dolls?

 

 

 

Item # 91429 Malefique Elyse Jolie™ Dressed Doll The Fashion Royalty® Collection The 2017 Integrity Toys Convention: Fashion Fairytale Official Convention Doll Edition Size: 600 Dolls

Malefique Elyse Jolie, the Integrity Toys Fashion Fairytale Convention Doll

The Fashion Fairytale that was the 2017 Integrity Toys 2017 Convention came to a close yesterday with a gala dinner and the unveiling of the Official Convention Doll by non-other than Jason Wu himself. Her name is Malefique Elyse Jolie and here she is:

It seems Jason is very fond of Elyse at the moment and for some time come to that. I would love to see a more close up look at the dress detail but if I was the recipient of this Eliyse I think I would be very happy. I don’t always like big gowns but I do love a girl all in black! Her hair is great too and I love her make-up.

The ballroom where the Gala Dinner was held was also decorated with Frosted Glamour Adèle Makéda centrepiece dolls.

I’m not such a fan of this one. I think the bodice gives her a rather unflattering shape. The fabric looks great in the close-up shot though but maybe a little too heavy for the upper half of the dress. Her make-up is to die for!

The build-a-giftset doll, Sweet Dreams Nadja Rhymes, also came to full fruition with her outfit being given out to attendees.

Fashionably Ruthless Tatyana Alexandrova

Fashionably Ruthless Tatyana Alexandrova Unveiled at Integrity Toys Convention

The Integrity Toys Fashion Fairytale 2017 convention kicked off in Orlando and the dolls were coming thick and fast if the emails sent out to W Club members. I’ve actually lost count of the number of dolls I have seen. One of the dolls I have been most looking forward to seeing unveiled was the Convention Upgrade doll Fashionably Ruthless Tatyana Alexandrova. Mainly as I have pre-ordered her and we had only been shown a few sketches up until now.

Making a marked return to the FR Collection in the porcelain skin tone, Tatyana is a 12.5-inch fashion doll with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. This fantastic gift set truly puts forward Tatyana’s, ahem, “love” of animals and includes fabulous mix-and-match pieces to create several looks. The gift set includes a faux-leather, laser-cut “natural edge” skirt, a Dalmatian printed blouse, a luxurious faux-fur coat with bright red lining, a long black satin skirt and separate black satin top (perfect to wear at her favorite fund-raising gala to benefit her local animal shelter, because as you know, she REALLY loves puppies). Set includes two pairs of pumps and Tatyana’s famously red hot cigarette holder!

And here she is in her all her prototype glory.

I am pleased to report I am glad I took the leap (not that I needed much persuading) and pr-ordered her way back in time in March. She looks mighty fine. From IRL pics I have seen from the convention, it looks like she comes with a rather neat suitcase gifset box too.

For coverage of this year’s convention be sure to check out my friend Rogier’s blog as he is lucky enough to be there in person!


What do you think of Tatyana and the other dolls at this year’s convention? Let me know in the comments section below.

Metamorphosis Erin Salston™ Dressed Doll Gift Set The Heirloom Collection 2017 W Club Exclusive

METAMORPHOSIS Erin Salston, NU.Face Heirloom Collection, 2017 W Club Exclusive

The W Club has just announced that the second Integrity Toys W Club doll for 2017 will be METAMORPHOSIS Erin Salston. She is billed as belonging to the recently announced NU.Face Heirloom Collection. Erin will be a gift set with not one but two outfits, and what wonderful outfits they are too… hubba, hubba!

Erin Salston makes a noted cameo on the runway of designer Jessy Ayala as she models two fresh looks from the 2017 Heirloom collection! Light and breezy, everyone’s favorite heiress looks absolutely stunning in these couture creations, designed just for her. By incorporating one of her most cherished family heirlooms, the Salston butterfly crown (handed down amongst the women of her family since Victorian times), our bad girl completely transformed these picturesque works of art and made them truly her own! With her new, delightful, ultra-feminine looks, Erin emerges from her cocoon and soars high like the most beautiful creations of nature!
Erin Salston (has a) simple, yet ultra-sophisticated fully rooted, long braided hair that can be transformed into many hot looks! This sensational gift set includes an intricately layered custom printed chiffon gown and a second outfit composed of a one-sleeved white satin top that features an extravagant floor-length train, coupled with unexpected, ultra-edgy denim micro-shorts. The set also includes Erin’s precious golden butterfly crown, jewelry and two pairs of shoes.
Erin with retail for $175 and is open for all W Club members to purchase with no lottery or other restrictions getting in the way. I suspect this beauty will be very popular. My order is in at least…
So what do you think of this girl? If you are a member of the W CLub will you be ordering her? Let me know in the comments section below.
Poppy Parker Misty Hollows Deboxing

Poppy Parker Misty Hollows Deboxing Video

Last Sunday there was a small meeting of the London Fashion Doll Club. I thought I would use the opportunity of a sunny London afternoon on Southbank spent with friends to film the unboxing of my latest Poppy Parker Misty Hollows doll by Integrity Toys. She is an IT Direct exclusive and belongs to the latest Swinging London Collection. She arrived a few days before but I managed to resist the temptation to open her sooner!

Below you will see the video that was taken by my friend Sofia. See if you can spot the deliberate (!) mistake in my naming of a famous London Landmark! There is also a guest appearance by a certain London celebrity, Mr Squirril. I promise no animals (or dolls) were harmed in the production of this video…

Poppy Parker Misty Hollows Deboxing Video

I really love this Poppy Parker. She certainly captures the Swinging London of the mid to late 1960s very well. Her hair is awesome but I will be giving it a bit of a wash to remove the product they put in it at the factory. As it is not a fixed style she doesn’t really need it. Also, the way she is packaged around the wait has flattened the pile of the velvet there. You can probably make it out in the pics below.

More Pics of Poppy and the other Dolls the Group brought to the meeting…

Be sure to check out the other videos on our DollObservers.com YouTube Channel. I hope to be adding more deboxing videos over the coming weeks! And if you live in London, or can travel, then do feel free to join us at one of our LFDC meetings. We try to meet on the last Sunday of every month.


Do you have the Poppy Parker Misty Hollows doll? What do you think of this video? Would you like to see more? Do let me know in the comments section below.

Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection 2017 Unveiled by Integrity Toys

Fashion Royalty ‘La Femme’ Collection 2017 Unveiled by Integrity Toys

In the second part of the unveiling in the Integrity Toys W Club webinar, designer Jessy Alaya and IT stalwart Alain Trembley took us through the long awaited 2017 Fashion Royalty collection called, La Femme. Jessy told us that his influence for this collection was the W Club Exclusive Riviera Drama Agnes and the glamour of the French Riviera. He also wanted to celebrate femininity in all it’s splendour.

There are 6 dolls in the collection, including an Exclusive Event Doll via IT Direct.

Vivacité Eugenia Perrin-Frost Dressed Doll, Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

As soon as she heard about the big annual ETSA conference that was about to take place in the South of France, Eugenia grabbed her cousin Vanessa and immediately insisted that they make the trip with Adèle Makéda. Who better than those two to keep things smooth and make sure that no one from a competing firm could show up to rain on their parade? No matter what, all reasons are good to visit the Riviera!
  • Head Sculpt: Eugenia
  • Body: FR 6.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: Hungarian
  • Hair Color: Soft Ebony
  • Edition Size: 1025 at $145

Coquette Jordan Duval Dressed Doll, Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

Natalia Fatalé is not about to let the Perrin family get the best of her and of course, since it would be too suspicious for her to attend the conference in person, she sends her number one confidante, sometimes-model and all-time trouble maker, Jordan Duval. Wait ’til Jordan comes back to Paris with the news that everything is about to change in their little world. Natalia will be green at the thought that she didn’t attend the conference herself! It doesn’t matter though, the only person everyone talked about was Jordan! Her fantastic style was the talk of the town!
  • Head Sculpt: Jordan
  • Body: FR 6.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: A-Tone
  • Hair Color: Sand Blond
  • Edition Size: 725 at $145

Sophistiquée Vanessa Perrin Dressed Doll, Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

When the plan took shape for representatives of W Cosmetics to attend the ETSA conference that was taking place in the South of France this year, it didn’t take much convincing for Vanessa to to jump on board. For weeks now, she had been hearing about changes that were coming and she wanted to be there to find out about everything before everyone else. Vanessa was definitely a Perrin, always right at the center of the action!
  • Head Sculpt: Vanessa Perrin 3.0
  • Body: FR 6.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: Cream
  • Hair Color: Pale Crimson
  • Edition size: 825 at $145

Séduisante Elyse Jolie Close-Up Doll, Fashion Royalty La Femme Fashion Royalty Collection

When the girls arrived in the South of France, they were delighted to run across Elyse Jolie, who, unbeknownst to them, had been on vacation under the sun for quite sometime already! Sporting a luscious new “bronzé” look, this leading lady of Fashion Royalty shines like a star!
  • Head Sculpt: Elyse Jolie
  • Body: FR 6.0
  • Foot Sculpt: High-heeled and Flat Feet (One Pair of Each Included)
  • Skin Tone: Light Honey
  • Hair Color: Dark Mocha
  • Edition Size: 825 at $120 (Available via W Club Lottery)

Exquise Adèle Makéda Dressed Doll, Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

When W Cosmetics owner Véronique Perrin opted to put her close friend Adèle in charge of the W Cosmetics delegation at the annual European Trendsetters’ Association (ETSA) meeting in the South of France, she knew she had made the right decision. Who better to represent one of the key players of the beauty industry than one of the top trendsetters on the planet for 5 years running (according to Pop Magazine)? Little did any of them know that their presence there would plant the seed for a major switch in their world, the world of Fashion Royalty!
  • Head Sculpt: Adèle Makéda 2.0
  • Body: FR 6.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: FR Black
  • Hair Color: Rich Sable
  • Edition Size: 725 at $120

Merveilleuse Agnes Von Weiss Dressed Doll, Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

When Agnes arrived at the annual meeting of the design houses to discuss trends and fashion directions for the upcoming season, she had ideas of her own. She made an entrance and her new look immediately sent a message to everyone present that her look was the “IT” look everyone should go for!
  • Head Sculpt: Agnes Von Weiss
  • Body: FR 6.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: FR White
  • Hair Color: Champagne Blond
  • An Event Exclusive IT Direct Doll
  • Edition Size: TBA at $150

So was the 2017 FR collection worth waiting for? You bet it was!  Jessy Alaya has really sealed his status as an iconic designer for the IT line. Each doll is unique yet cohesive to the Collection theme. I love all of them. However, we can’t always have everything that we want so I settled for Vivacité Eugenia because she sums up Riviera chic perfectly, Exquise Adèle because she is pure sophisticated glamour and I LOVE her short Marcel Wave hair style. I also ordered Agnes because as a W Club member it would be rude not to!

So what do you think of this collection? Did you order any dolls? Let me know in the comments section below.
NU. Face Heirloom Collection 2017 Unveiled by Integrity Toys

NU. Face Heirloom Collection 2017 Unveiled by Integrity Toys

This last Saturday saw the first Integrity Toys W Club unveiling webinar of 2017. Members were informed a couple of days beforehand that this would be for NU. Face and Fashion Royalty thereby ending much speculation, especially as the FR collection had been so delayed.

This was my first webinar for quite some time, as I did not join the W Club in 2016, and was very much looking forward to this one. It is always interesting to hear the designers talk about their influences and inspirations behind their collections.

The designer for both collections is the young up and coming IT designer Jessy Ayala who was responsible for the hit Reckless collection last year. H talked us through each of the dolls with Carol Roth hosting as usual. The first collection unveiled was the Nu. Face Heirloom Collection. There were 7 dolls in all, including a Lilith and Eden gift set.

Charmed Life Imogen Lennox Dressed Doll, NU. Face Heirloom Collection

Imogen Lennox comes from a long line of beautiful women and when she was scouted by the NU. Face agency, clearly she stood out from the crowd. Her unique look always gives her an edge and she’s in high-demand, whether she’s doing runway shows in London (her native city) or traveling to some exotic locale for a stunning photo shoot. No matter where she goes, Imogen always takes her lucky brooch with her. It has been in her family for generations and has become an intricate part of her look!

  • Head Sculpt: Imogen
  • Body: NF 3.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: Japan
  • Hair Color: Ginger
  • Edition Size: 725, $140.00

Heiress Erin Salston Dressed Doll, NU. Face Heirloom Collection

Erin Salston will not settle for less than the latest designer clothing, but she will make an exception for her mother’s antique “FR” mini-case. How can anyone resist such a timeless piece of fashion art? She certainly can’t and that little case always goes wherever she does!

  • Head sculpt: Erin 2.0
  • Body: NF 3.0, Foot sculpt: high-heeled
  • Skin Tone: Latino
  • Hair color: Amber Brown
  • Edition Size: 725 at $140.00

Neo-Romantic Rayna Ahmadi Dressed Doll, NU. Face Heirloom Collection

Rayna Ahmadi is a major fashionista and she loves fashion so much that she has an entire room in her fashionable London flat dedicated to her extensive collection of fashion accessories and jewelry of all sorts. Of course, the one thing that totally stands out is her large cuff bracelet, which is an antique jewelry piece that was handed down by her grandmother. Generations of women in her family have worn this piece and it has now become her signature!

  • Head Sculpt: Rayna
  • Body: NF 3.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: Latino
  • Hair Color: Dark Espresso
  • Edition size: 725 at $140.00

Vanity & Glamour Nadja Rhymes Close-Up Doll, NU. Face Heirloom Collection

Nadja Rhymes always loves to show her sensuous side in a fabulously glam way! Dressed to seduce in this gorgeous lingerie set, Nadja poses with her favorite hand-held mirror. Will the mirror tell who is the fairest one of all? It’s safe to say that in her case, it’s totally her!
  • Head Sculpt: Nadja 2.0
  • Body: NF 3.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: A-Tone
  • Hair Color: Sterling Silver
  • Edition size: 725 at $120.00

Hauntingly Lovely Ayumi Nakamura Close-Up Doll, NU. Face Heirloom Collection

Ayumi Nakamura loves to blend her style with her friend Nadja’s and the two have been seen modeling for one of the top lingerie designers on the planet. Since they love contrasts, Ayumi wears a delicate cream-colored petal embroidered cardigan over her own devilishly amazing lingerie set, while she brushes her lovely tresses, waiting for her turn to go in front of the camera.
  • Head Sculpt: Ayumi 3.0
  • Body: NF 3.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: FR White
  • Hair Color: Baby Blond
  • Edition size: 825 at $120.00

Poetic Beauty Lilith and Eden Blair Twin-Doll Gift Set, NU. Face Heirloom Collection

Lilith and Eden like to create traditions of their own. The sisters are so close, that everything they do is a moment to cherish and remember. Still, like all the other girls at the NU. Face agency, they have their own little accessories that they would consider their “lucky charms” and they never leave home without them!
  • Head Sculpt: Lilith and Eden
  • Body: NF 3.0, Foot Sculpt: High-heeled
  • Skin Tone: Cream
  • Hair Color: Mahogany (Lilith) and Pale Honey (Eden)
  • Sold as a Right-to-Buy Lottery doll via IT Direct
  • Edition size: 925 at $199

I think Jessy has given us a magnificent collection. Each of the dolls is based around the idea of an Heirloom (the brooch belonging to Imogen, the mirror belonging to Nadja). There is a Victorian influence throughout the collection in line with Jessy’s vision of a mansion setting for the dolls. I wanted them all but I controlled myself and only ordered Nadja as she is fierce as hell and I love the mirror accessory so was too good to give up. Judging by the way she has sold out with my dealer I am very glad I did!

What do you think of this collection? Did you order any dolls? If so let me know in the comments section below.

Poppy Parker British Invasion

Poppy Parker British Invasion: First W Club Exclusive of 2017

It has been a while -but finally- the first W Club Exclusive Doll of 2017 is here… and she is Poppy Parker, set on mounting a British Invasion! With this release, it certainly seems that Integrity Toys are listening to their fans, as there are a lot of ticks on many a collector’s wish list. Union Jack dress? Check. Red hair, anyone? Double check! Loads of accessories? Absofreakinlutely!

She certainly ticks a few of my own wish list requests, not least of which are the cool accessories. I also love the Union Jack mini dress and she also rocks that raincoat and boots. I really think they have nailed the London Mod look with this release. If there is anything that I am not so keen on it is the pillar box red hair (although very London). It may grow on me when I see her IRL.

Poppy Parker Swinging London Collection Unveiled

Poppy Parker Swinging London Collection: First Wave Unveiled

The Poppy Parker Swinging London Collection was announced at the launch of the 2017  W Club with the Upgrade Poppy Parker doll, Popster. Now, finally, Integrity Toys have unveiled the first wave of the groovtastic collection in all its Mod-ern glory. There are six dolls in all, including a two doll giftset and a Special Event W Club member exclusive.

Designed by David Buttry, as always, they take the Poppy storyline to the Swinging London of the mid to late 1960s when it was the centre of the hip and happening Mod Scene. This was the time Britain rose out of the gloom of the post-war era and youth culture was born and embodied by the fashion of the time. Skirts were short and the Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton were the first supermodels that every young woman wanted to emulate. The dolls feature a new 1.5 body with limbs which come apart.
