JAMIEshow Mel Odom's "Holiday Gala" Gene Marshall

Jamieshow with Mel Odom debuted their newest resin Gene Marshall doll today. She's called "Holiday Gala."

Here is the description from the website:

Ltd Edition of 125
Pre Order Item
Shipping beginning of December
Price: $550.

I like the soft lavender pastel tones of the hostess ensemble but the fuchsia gloves totally overpower everything. Cover up the gloves when you're looking at the first and third photos and you can appreciate the total image. The shoes are wonderful.
The dressing table, bench and mirror in the doll box is a great idea.  

Gene's face has a lovely soft look. 


Kinsman Doll Booth

Booth arrived and, as you can see above, I did the unpacking ceremony in front of a camera. The packaging was secure and perfect and the doll arrived in pristine condition - no surprise there.

My new man arrived with a pair of briefs, his wig and a stand. I had no problem at all having him stand unsupported. His joints are excellent. There's no kickiness or looseness. Although his body shading may have looked heavy in some early promotional photos, in person the contouring is just right.

He's wearing Trent's sweater. I've got to try some other stretchy man doll clothing on him.

Real men love little dogs!


New Outfits

In my not-so-humble opinion, the navy blue ensemble called "On Set," modeled below by re-bodied "Overachiever" Eugenia Frost, was the best of the recent FR Cinematic Convention offerings. It was in the registration bag. It's sleek and sexy and I love it.

The only other item I wanted from this event is being modeled by another re-bodied Eugenia, "Most Desired."  This outfit is from "Inner Spark" Natalia, a convention package doll.
Yes, it's another fish tail black gown but I like it. The texture of the surface swirls almost makes the gown look beaded. The bodice could have been a bit tighter but it's just fine on the FR2 body as is.

I'd still like to have the Elise "Starlet" centerpiece doll nude only because I love that sculpt but I'm not paying the price being asked as it's not important enough. She's not in the running as one of the best Elise dolls anyway. No FR sculpt is that necessary anymore because my collecting funds go towards the resin BJDs now. I'll still buy a doll or three occasionally but I've also sold off a portion of my FRs.


The gown and wig above are a wonderful pair of creations by Cholo Ayuyao. Bravely modeled by Sybarite Toxica, it leaves little to the imagination.

In this, our precious world of pretty dolls, one has to be very selective to curate a rewarding collection according to one's own means. I'm getting better at that now.

There is much to sell off but it takes so much time which might better be spent playing.

Balance? Moderation? What are they?


Moschino Barbie® Doll – Caucasian - African American

These dolls disappeared quickly. They were scheduled to go live at 6AM Pacific Time. That would be 9AM my time but they were gone before that. I hate the Barbie.Com website. Either their site crashes or they don't stick to schedules. Really messed up!
I would have ordered one just for the pieces of the outfit I like.
Their faces and bodies are turn-offs IMO.

The retail price of these Gold Label dolls was $150.  Gold Label editions are 25,000 or less.  Must have been a lot less to have disappeared so quickly.
