Azone also had a sales table in the Integrity sales room this year, I'm thrilled to say. I'm pleased to announce I was finally able to pick up a 1/12 size Picco Neemo--so adorable.
Bittersweet Eugenia Frost, also from the convention collection.
New packaging is elegant--gold foil textured background with a black glossy lid.
We also bought a $50 grab box. It included a Misfits doll, dressed. She is wearing only one sick--and is the one with bright yellow hair. I'm not sure if she originally had two socks or is missing one. Seems like she's about half off, though.
The other convention dolls are quite elegant. I took photos with the real camera and will upload them later.

Star in the Making Poppy Parker
This is the convention collection Poppy. Cute, classic and elegant!
Tricks Up Her Sleeve Poppy Parker
Not everyone received tickets for this doll. Some attendees got tickets for a cute blue-haired Tulabelle.
October Issue Agnes Weiss
iPhone quick takes, just so you all don't have to wait.
Hard Metal ITBE doll
Doesn't she look familiar? I think she's gorgeous!
It's a Monogram! She includes gold shoes (metallic pumps) hidden in there, too.
Our registration bags also include a cute tee from Azone that with the Nippon label screened on the front, the current issue of Dolls Magazine, and coupons for a few surprises in the sales room.
In addition to a $50 grab bag, I also received:
Tricks Up Her Sleeve Poppy Parker
Hard Metal Basic Edition
In Sequins Basic Edition
Now, all I have to do is decide which dolls to bring home!

Evening with Simon

Another addition to my Daphne project and acquisition via trade, this is Evening with Simon from 2009. She was a mainline Tonner release.

Here, she's modeling Decadent Dalliance, an Angelina Ruiz fashion, since I haven't yet added her fashion to my collection yet.

I think she's just wonderful.

You can see additional photos of this beautiful doll on Flickr.

Iris as The Toucan

I'm trying to take farewell photos of my dolls just before they travel. This is Garden Party Iris, who has just found a new home.

She's dressed in The Toucan's outfit, a centerpiece doll from the 2012 Flights of Fancy convention. I think she wears the outfit quite well.

Havana Nights Ling Lan

I've finally had a moment to take a few photos of Havana Nights Ling Lan, now available as a basic. She is more sophisticated and elegant, and slightly more mature than Flying Dragon.

Like other JAMIEshow dolls, her resin glows under the camera. She poses like a dream, too.

Dinner Dance

Another Tiny Kitty - Dinner Dance - has arrived. She's really sweet. Auburn hair in a braided up-do, brown eyes, and a wonderful silver outfit, this girl is ready for an evening out on the town.

You can see additional photos of her on Flickr.

Tiny Kitty returns...

Pink Champagne by alington

I am thrilled to see Miss Tiny Kitty Collier return to Tonner's fall/holiday 2013 collection. She has the bendy-wrist articulated body we last saw in 2008, and she's a great poser.

This lovely lady is a split from Dreamcastle Dolls. I bought Garden Club Luncheon nude, since I have to have a raven in my collection. Her outfit is from Pink Champagne.

I normally don't care for gloves, but I slipped them on the first try. I was even able to fasten the bracelet easily. I have always adored this little lady's 1950s vibe and style, and I will admit, I was excited when she (and her cohort, Dinner Dance) arrived. They literally took my breath away!

The only two improvements I can suggest are:
  • A better stand. Even a saddle stand would be better than the original--though Kaiser stands work fine, I suppose.
  • A knee redesign. (I know, I know. I'm picky.)

A fun time was had by all at the premier Atlanta BJD Convention last weekend. Check out the photos on Flickr.

Ellowyne Wilde and a few of her friends made an appearance at Angela Wade's table, Plaid Dragon.

Iris as The Parrot

The Parrot by alington
The Parrot, a photo by alington on Flickr.
This is Garden Party Iris, modeling The Parrot fashion, one of the centerpieces from the Flights of Fancy convention (Tonner Doll 2012). This outfit was probably my favorite of the five birds.

Iris is a red-haired Daphne sculpt on an Antoinette body, and a Metrodolls exclusive from a few years ago.

Steffie of the Day: Goddess of Asia

Goddess of Asia by alington
Goddess of Asia, a photo by alington on Flickr.
You know something big is up when my collection is rotating through the Steffie shelf.

Goddess of Asia has come up for a recent photoshoot and may soon be appearing for sale. I adore this girl, but she takes up too much display space in the cabinet.

She's the only Steffie sculpt Bob Mackie has used so far, and her costume is amazing. It's not designed to be removable, as far as I can tell. The beading is throughout the skirt phenomenal. The bodice features illusion style beaded detailing.

Her facial screening is really pretty, too: unusual lime green and yellow with lots of blush, plus bright red lips. Her hair is styled in a high braided ponytail and heavy bangs.

You can see additional photos on Flickr.

Fashion Icon

Fashion Icon by alington
Fashion Icon, a photo by alington on Flickr.
One of the 2013 Metrodolls luncheon, Style Evolution, event dolls is Fashion Icon by Tonner Doll. She is a limited edition of 125, and is a gorgeous auburn (wigged) Daphne. Her makeup is elegant, and accents her grey eyes perfectly. (I'm not usually a fan of red lips, but I adore this girl!)

In addition to a gorgeous spaghetti strap satin and chiffon cocktail dress, she comes dressed in a vintage overdress with asymmetrical snaps down the front. Accessories include rhinestone studs and black peep-toe pumps.

You can see additional photos in my Flickr photostream.

If you like this doll, you may still be able to purchase one from Metrodolls directly for $200 plus shipping. There is also a souvenir Ellowyne, Metro Girl, available. She's limited to 250. I didn't add her to my collection.

Be sure to check out all the fantastic fashions available, too.

Three New Petworks Momoko

The fall season has kicked in and some Momoko inspired by this time of year have been released on the Petworks website. 

Two dolls are a part of the CCS13AW set called "Autumnal Tints."  The two different versions are called "Yellow Leaf" and "Red Leaf."  Both dolls sport quite different clothing and faces, but they both have short hair cuts.  Yellow Leaf is a honey face and Red Leaf is a cool face.  Both are available at 24,000 yen each and can currently be preordered through Petworks Momoko dealers.

The third Momoko is CCS13AW Home.  She has soft black long wavy hair, a cute knitted one piece dress with fuzzy long sleeves, and pink wedge shoes.  She has a cool face sculpt and pastel pink nail polish.  She is available at 19,000 yen and can currently be preordered through Petworks Momoko dealers.

Want some special designs for your Momoko?  I provide lots of dolly attire and a pattern book for DIY MegannArt designs.  Support an artist!  Visit my website (MegannArt) for an Etsy shop, Twitter, Facebook (with occasional discounts), Pinterest page, and much more.

Petworks Momoko ae "Mary Magdalene"

Momoko doll faces are getting a makeover with this new lady sporting designs from Mary Magdalene.  The Momoko has a sideways glance honey face, beige eye shadow, light pearl pink lipstick, carrot mix colored hair, pink nails, and fair skin.  She comes with a mini-hat, blouse, pale blue jumper dress, knee high socks, and maryjane shoes.  She looks like a cute marionette.  

She will be available for 28,000 yen, starting in late October.  It is currently unclear if she will be sold in the Petworks Global Store.

What do you think of the new doll?

More items for sale

I've posted four more listings on the DollPage Show & Sell this morning in preparation for my new book. These listings will be great for my Tonner Doll fans out there. My goal is to rotate the dolls in my collection to get the ones I need for my newest projects. I'll keep you posted on how it's going, but so far, it's going well!

Above, you can see FAO Schwarz exclusive The Parakeet. She uses the Cami sculpt with raven hair in a braided updo. She is gorgeous! If you loved the Flights of Fancy dolls from the 2012 convention, this limited edition 100 girl would fit right in. 

Chantilly Charmant

Chantilly Charmant is an Effanbee doll from the 2006 Paris Fashion Doll, limited to 150. She was only available in Paris. She is a lovely Daphne Dimples doll from the Brenda Starr collection with gorgeous green eyes and platinum curls. She has a pink satin trumpet style gown with antique lace overlay. Simply gorgeous!

Celebration in Paris
Tyler Wentworth makes a red carpet appearance in Celebration in Paris. This doll was a grail of mine for years, but isn't fitting in my collection anymore. Another Paris Fashion Doll LE100 from 2009, this platinum Tyler 2.0 wears a dramatic black gown with lots of tulle.

Morning Mist
Last but not least, it's Morning Mist. Daphne made a long-awaited appearance to Tonner's main line this year with this Tonner Ballet dressed doll, and she includes an additional pair of heel feet. She includes a gorgeous purple and lavender sequined costume and ballet shoes.

CCS Momoko 13AN ​​Home: LAMM or FROMM

A couple of new Momoko have been introduced to the Petworks team, 13AN Home.  There are two versions, LAMM and FROMM.  LAMM appears to have long curly platinum white hair and Petworks boots, while FROMM has silver and platinum white mixed hair and wedge pumps.  Otherwise, all other features of the dolls appear to be the same other than perhaps a different skin tone.  The dolls are likely only going to be sold at a special event in Japan.

What do you think of the twins?  I'm loving the mixed silver and white hair. 

I think we've seen that dress before on the Mauve Maiden Momoko.  It is a bit hard to tell, but the dress might be the same green color as Mauve Maiden's too.
