This Week in My Dolly World

My ever patient and often tolerant husband put up with endless doll chatter today in the car to and from Marcia Friend's home for her annual barbeque.

Then he sat through several more hours of doll talk.
"Who is that? When did you get her? What is she wearing? Does it stain? She came with that? I want one. What convention? Will these shoes fit? How much was it? Why did they schedule the conventions for the same weekend? I have one of those. You sold it? 1500 Barbies?" And on and on.
 If I put myself in his place, I think I'd die of boredom or go mad. But the food was very good. The weather was gorgeous and some of us acted like crazed fools when they let us loose on the free table. So that had to be good for a laugh.  Rudy accompanied us and he loved the attention.

I don't collect Ellowyne, right? So I bought an Ellowyne. What else is new? Doll collecting is as rational as the weather.

Invisible Ink Ellowyne
This is Invisible Ink Ellowyne. The photograph is Tonner's. My doll's hair is nicer than the promo pictures which do not do her justice. What really sold me on the doll was the bargain price of $80. and these shoes:

Aren't they adorable?

Now I have to get Sybil.

 And I love Sybil's carrying case, too.  This is how it starts. Let one new doll line in and the dominoes start to fall. Resistance is futile. I've been hunting the Wilde site for the last hour deciding what I would buy if I were buying. There are so many cute outfits and several on sale. Hmmm.

There were lots of door prizes given out, many contributed by other collectors and by Tonner Doll. I was lucky enough to win the "Dancing on A Cloud" Tonner fashion. I will try dying it as I already have one

It has been quite a week. On one day Jason Wu's "Fashion's Night Out" Poppy arrived along with Traveler Innoquii

Traveler Innoquii
and the Monogram dressed doll, Extravagance, who is not without issues. The Monogram fashion, Escapade and wig set also arrived.

A doll that costs $150 (or $50 for that matter) should not have hair that looks like this out of the box.
Apparently, the factory worker who messed up hair before is still employed and still messing up doll hair for a living.
I have taken the 'style' down and washed the gunk out. Her hair is rooted thinly (which isn't a bad thing) so if I want to keep the hair down, more will have to be added.

I will do more thorough reviews with photographs of Extravagance, Escapade, Innoquii and Ellowyne, too. Soon.

Tune in again.


  1. Wow, what a gem your husband is! Mine has NO tolerance for doll talk, although he isn't as bad as some partners I hear about who actually try to discourage doll collecting!!! congrats on Ellowyne, that is one of the girls I would get, if I collected Ellowyne. Which I don't. Nope, not at all. Not going to start. LauraLA

  2. Where on earth did you get an Ellowyne for only $80? Amazing!

  3. I just received my Innoquii from Haute doll and I am pleased! Really the 'eyepatch' made me very unsure, but I decided at $75 it was worth seeing if I could do something with her, if nothing else, I would get a fashion for my sybarite as I read they have the same body. But I actually like her! She is very different from my other dolls and will be great for taking some over the top photos I think...I was going do somthing about her eye, but I think I will live with it for awhile and see if I will just leave it. She definately exudes attitude! I like the tattoos too. Glad I decided to order her!
