First up is the new Katy Keene line that I was so looking forward to. It was a little disappointing to hear that they used the Color Infusion/Jem Body. A larger busted, more curvy body would have been perfect for a doll from this era. As far as re-using existing sculpts, why not make the doll look like Katy Keene? All that work put in to a new line and for what?
I would have bought the entire line; as it was, I pre-ordered only "Blue Serenade" and "Shimmering Dynasty."
"Winning Number" LE 425
"The Odds Are Stacked" LE 500
"Blue Serenade" LE 500
Evening gown adapted from the comic itself.
"Shimmering Dynasty" LE 500
Black holographic sequin gown lots of jewelry.
"Everything's Keene" LE 500 Gift Set
Prices of the Katy Keene were $145. per dressed doll and $185. for the gift set.
Vaughn Sawyer introduced the FR 16 line.
He said his inspiration was "Strong, independent, powerful women, classic clothing, timeless fashion." I think in most cases he achieved that. For me, the handbags were the highlight of this particular line and the toned-down eye makeup. He explained that it's not airbrushed but they attempted a style to resemble airbrushing.
My favorite outfit was Fall Phenomenon. Exuberance was a crowd favorite.
I didn't order any of the FR16.
"Super Natural" Anais McKnight DD LE400 $175.
"Incognito" Elsa Lin DD LE400 $175.
"Fall Phenomenon" Elsa Lin DD LE400 $175.
"Shades of Grey" Hanne Erickson DD LE 400 $175.
"Exuberance" Hanne Erickson DD LE 400 $200.
Poppy Parker The Model Scene Collection Later 60's
Inspiration: (David Buttry) Diana Vreeland's Fashion Models
I don't collect Poppy Parker but I think this collection is quite successful and I preordered three from this line! Had I been a collector I would have ordered three more. Spring Song was surprising for it's unusual character role that Poppy plays. It's my least favorite. My overall favorite is The Camera Loves Her. I love the era she portrays and the fashion is adorable. The black Poppy Parker "Midas Touch" is very pretty and her outfit is also adorable. And then I couldn't resist Nigel because of his cool jacket. I have a great group of Hommes in my FR collection and he will definitely add another dimension.
