Dasha (Purity Dasha)

The Year Of The Dasha!  There have been some great Dasha releases this year.  She was absent for quite a while.  I wasn't collecting Integrity when most of the early Dashas were released, so I only have this one incarnation of her so far, but I'm hoping to expand that collection in the near future. (Daytime Impact will be on her way to me once Lady Stardust Tulabelle comes back from her body matching trip to China).

Harley (The Great Pretender Lillith)

It's exciting that the convention Lillith, Editorial Edge, has the Great Pretender screening.  I can't wait to get mine in a few week (she's shipping from IT to the person that I bought her from).  But I still have this lovely lady to keep me company until her brunette doppelganger arrives.

Salem (Aerodynamic Vanessa)

My convention dolls arrived at my friend's house in the states, so they'll be on their way to me tomorrow!  Wheeeeeee!

I love the blue lipstick on this girl.  I hope different lips is something we'll see from the Industry line.

Elizabeth (Hopelessly Captivating Luchia)

Now that the convention has ended, there will be dolls coming to live with me - more than I'd planned on, really.  But, before they do arrive, let's give some love to the dolls that will be welcoming them to the fold.  One of the best convention dolls ever made has to be Hopelessly Captivating Luchia.

Supermodel - IT Convention Gala Dinner!

Sorry this took so long to write up.  I had to work early Sunday so couldn't stay up and wait for the email, and then Sunday and today, I felt like my brain was made of diarrhea.  But here we go with the finale of the Supermodel convention.

First up was a centerpiece - Tweed Couture Dania!  I was pretty surprised, but pleasantly.

Her necklace is astounding.  It's based off a 1997 Dior look.

Next up they had the design winner annoucements, and Salvador Lopez Arriaga won with this cool design.  She'll be produced next year:

I hope the doll herself looks like this, too!

After dinner, Jason Wu went up and did an interview with Carol, and revealed that he'll be doing a new line next year that will debut the Velvet Touch skin.  I don't know much else about it, so we'll have to wait and see.  However, convention-goers were given the chance to pre-order this lovely Elyse - La Vie en Bleu.  She's only available for the convention peeps, so I'm sure she'll be a pretty penny on the secondary market.

The convention doll this year was also a surprise.  Most people, including me, were expecting Elyse or Agnes, but it was Diva Dasha!  This year is the year of Dasha.

She's stunning!  I kind of really want her, but at the same time, she's somewhat like Modern Sensibility and Always Polished, so I dunno.... I'll probably cave and want her too, though.

Lastly, they announced that next year's convention theme will be Fairytale Fashion, and will be in Orlando.  I was hoping for something in the Northeast, to be honest, but I'm hoping to make it to Orlando next year.  I say that every year about convention, though.

Supermodel - IT Convention WClub Luncheon!

It's the luncheon that everyone looks forward to every convention!  You have to be a WClub member to go to the lunch, and it's always full of info.  This year they had a question and answer.  Reports from those going suggest that Victoire will be back next year, that the Jem club doll is going to be on sale soon, Coven dolls are going to be on sale very soon (people there even got to see pictures, but weren't allowed to take pics or share, so the rest of us will have to be patient).  Also, Nu.Face's next line (not sure if it's the one for this year, or next year) will be based on the movie Clueless.  Sounds fun!

The centerpiece doll was Full Speed Erin:

Wow.  The one that was actually on the table was also sitting on a die-cast motorcycle that a few people had the chance to buy.  You can actually get them on Amazon as well.  This doll is chanelling Helena Christiansen.

The gift doll was Checking In Colette:

Yep, Colette's got a new face.  I'm REALLY not digging the outfit, but I'm not sure how I feel about the face.  It's quite wide, but I still think she's pretty.  She might be like Karolin Stone, where it takes me a while to warm up to it, but I wind up liking it in the end.

Tonight is the gala finale dinner, and I'm expecting to see some cool stuff.  Stay tuned!

Supermodel - IT Fashion Royalty Luncheon

Today was the luncheon that would have normally been the welcome dinner.  And they had a special guest - 90's era supermodel Veronica Webb.  How cool is that?

It all started with this AMAZING OMG STUNNING centerpiece Legendary Natalia:

I need her in my life.

Next, they were given the final piece of the You Better Werk fashion set:

It's a pretty cute little Chanel-esque short set.  And we see all the accessories that come with the entire set, given over the three pieces.

Finally, we were shown the free gift doll for the luncheon - Shade Kyori:

Really, really pretty.  And her dress is FANTASTIC.

So, that's it for tonight, since they have the fashion bazaar instead of a dinner.  But tomorrow will have both the WClub luncheon and the Finale dinner, so stay tuned!  (I'm guessing the finale dinner will be Agnes and Elyse)
