Integrity Toys Convention 2016 Luncheon and Banquet

 'The evening started with the introduction of the final centerpiece of the weekend, the ultra-sophisticated Dania Zarr, which was followed by dinner, the announcement of this year's competition winner, Salvador Lopez Arriaga, the highly-anticipated raffle of the designer OOAK dolls and finally, an interview with top designer Jason Wu where he announced the plans for the celebration of his company's 10th anniversary in 2017 and the introduction of new features in the Fashion Royalty line, starting with the "Velvet Touch" skin finish! Jason then announced that as a thank you for everyone who opted to attend convention this year ONLY, a special pre-order offer would be included with the convention doll to pre-order the very first Elyse doll that features the "Velvet Touch" skin finish.Finally, the moment everyone was waiting for came and this year's convention doll was unveiled, the ultra-glamorous Dasha, which came with not one, but two complete outfits to match the other girls in the convention collection! What a trip!'

The W Club Member's Luncheon featured a Nu Face Doll as the centerpiece and the gift. There weren't 400 motorcycles and they were a separate purchase. Someone posted that they were $20. I don't know if that is verifiable.

I believed, at first, that they had changed the sculpt. I examined her face closely and now I am convinced it's the same Elise sculpt but painted very differently.  I don't care for this interpretation as it washes out her beautiful features. Her lips look tiny and her eyes are squinty. 


But the toned-down make-up and styling of the doll is in line with the human model from Jason's pre-fall 2016 collection. She looks taken aback and ragged.



It was announced that next year's convention will be held in Orlando.

  1. Dania's outfit looks like a burlap potato sac. Just so awful in so many ways.

    Dasha is beautiful and I really love the colors on her. Amazing.

    Elise is ugly and overpriced. I think Jason Wu is overrated.

  2. I think it's funny Integrity is copying Lovetones Dolls with the velvet touch skin.

    I have to be honest, I find the Elise to be ugly, and the gown matronly. I don't like the models Jason Wu selects for his human fashions. If this new line is going to mimic what he does in real life, down to the frumpy looking models, I will easily pass on these.

    2. I think they may be starving to death, just a bit...
