My Muse issue number 2 dropped into my inbox a couple of days ago and I must say I have enjoyed it immensely. Whilst not all dolls featured would be my chosen type, the photography is so invention and stunningly undertaken that I simply don’t mind! This magazine really is a feast for the eyes and is rather inspirational in its representation of dolls as works of art.
There’s also a rather fun dress making and photography competition in this month’s issue!
During a Toy Fair Online Unveiling Event webinar, exclusively for members of Integrity Toys’ W Club, designers and creators at the company unveiled the upcoming dolls for 2011. Lines due for an update included Dynatmite Girls, Fashion Royalty, FR2, FR: Monogram, Nu: Face and Poppy Parker. The sheer number and variety on show was rather overwhelming, to say the least.
Here is a small slice of what we have to look forward to:
The Dynamite Girls
The Dynamite Girls are hitting the beaches on the upper east coast this summer for a much needed vacation from the hustle and bustle of the fashion world in New York. Joining Jett, Sooki and Aria is a new guy in town. His name is Kyu and he’s a Korean Pop singer. He’s in New York for a photo shoot that the girls are styling, but he may be sticking around a bit longer now.
The Dynamite Girls see several male characters introduced to the line included this rather handsome chap Kyu.
Above is the Dynamite Girls Plastic inevitable Collection. This new collection is inspired by New York’s bustling art and counter-culture scene of the late 1960s and early 1980s. Two new guys join the Dynamite Girls in this collection. Auden is an in-demand hair and makeup artist and Remi is becoming a top fashion photographer in the industry. Together, with the girls, they make a great team!
New FR: Monogram Collection
Above is the New FR: Monogram collection, Passionate, Bemused and Envied…
In yet more Tonner news; it was announced yesterday that the very latest 2010 Fall/Holiday collection had gone live on the Tonner Doll site.
Scarecrow is a chick ...oh my!
Quite a mixed bunch at first glance with variations on several ongoing themes such as shrunken a Harry Potter and female variations of the Wizard of Oz trio of male characters. Interesting to some I’m sure but not really floating my boat. Some of the
Some progress on the proper fashion doll front though, if a little meagre. But nice to see some action in the Tyler camp with be-wigged basic dolls and a denim theme boutique collection. Oh and a few Antoinette gals too.
Doll Reader magazine has announced the 2010 DOTY Public’s’s Choice Winners. I must say I am unfamiliar with all of these dolls (especially the baby dolls… shudders!). A shame also not to see a Superdoll on the list this year too!
One of the brightest stars in the fashion doll world will soon be no more
It is with great sadness that I have learnt that Haute Doll magazine, a perennial favourite amongst fashion doll lovers, will soon be no more. It seems that the the publishers has become yet another victim to the ongoing economic downturn and have decided to ‘retire’ from publishing as from the July/September issue.
Although the magazine will no longer be published as is we do know that it will become a ‘supplement’ in Doll Reader, published by Madavor Media. The first of these is due to be published in October. It is not yet known if there will continue to be the exclusive dolls that we have come to know and look out for. Particularly the Sybarite lovers amongst us who have long benefited from the special relationship the Superfrock boys had with HD.
Facebook has entered into the it’s very own controversial nipple-gate scandal after banning a photo belonging Victoria Buckley a jewellery designer from Sydney, Australia to showing a nude doll designed by Marina Bychkova of Enchanted Doll in Canada. These are no ordinary dolls either but beautiful works of art and can cost thousands of dollars. The photo was used to display and illustrate the designer’s jewellery and posted on her Facebook fan page. The doll also forms an aspect of Victoria’s window display in her actual store in Sydney, with no complaints thus far.
Not since Janet Jackson’s ‘wardrobe malfunction‘ has a normal part of female anatomy caused quite so much controversy. Well in the doll community at least!
The Superfrock boys are very close to releasing an all new Sybarite body design. To mark the event there will be 2, very last “Mark 2” body dolls, released at a very limited release of 75. The old body moulds have been destroyed and these gals will be the very last of their kind!
The first doll, which landed on planet Superfrock today, is called Maverick. This rather lovely doll sports the Venus D’Royce clone face. Many fans have likened her looks to the basic Venus, released a couple of years ago. I have to agree… to a degree. However the face-up does have very subtle differences and colouring. And she is nevertheless gorgeous! The wig is to die for and the outfit sublime! Go to Superfock now to see for yourself and look out for her sister Mantilla coming very soon!!
This is her blurb:
Maverick ED: 75
(as seen in promo image for 2010 Valentine excl. gown ‘After Midnight’)
Venus d’Royce. clone: 777.
Neutral yet colourful. Serene yet demanding!
Gorgeous Venus appears in shades of nude and reptile with
just a dash of DAYGLO lime! Chantilly lace nude mantilla, silksatin and silk chiffon backless midrif blouse, lime beaded skirt, crystal and metalic hose. ankle boots in faux lizard!
10 matching bracelets and dark burnt plum armlets. hairbows in matching lime and nude corsage!
Turquoisey jade eyes, neurtral shadow, pale guava lips & applied brown eyelashes.
Everything you ever wanted in a gate keeper… and then some.”
Although I am not exactly a fan of Tim Burton I am a fan of the Alice in Wonderland story. So I must say my first look at this photo of Mattel’s Johnny Depp‘s Mad Hatter have rather impressed me. The sculpt looks amazingly accurate and the outfit has great attention to detail. Here is the Mattel blurb:
“Tim Burton brings his unique take on a favorite story to the Disney film, Alice in Wonderland. Here, the Mad Hatter doll wears a costume exactingly re-created from the movie. From his delightful top hat that frames his cartoonish features and curly red locks to his colorful costume, this is one adorable doll you’ll go mad for!”
