Baby it’s You!

Yay! It’s a happy day when a new doll arrives to your house.  I was so excited over the ToyFair releases for awhile and then the feeling went away because I won’t even see them for a few months, LOL.  The good news is that the Rock Wedding dolls should be here next month!!

Getting Poppy and Chip today and working with Chip makes me excited to see Romain. Honestly he (Romain) may be the first male doll I’ll keep.  I hadn’t really even played with the male dolls and they seem much stiffer to work with.  Not only do the joints seem stiffer, but the neck doesn’t have as much range of motion either.  This made it difficult for me to photograph. Hmm… methinks this will be my next challenge.  What can I say folks? I gots male-problems!

Anywhoo, Poppy is fab as usual, and I’m kind of sad to see her in her last 50′s style outfit for awhile.  As much as I am happy to see the mod line, I’ll miss her in these outfits.  I mean that’s the Poppy we know and love, right? BUT…We have been assured that it won’t be the last of this period, and what the heck, I always modernize mine, so I don’t know why I’m feeling sentimental over this Poppy? Weird? Yes.

Chip is super cute, and the perfect boytoy boyfriend for Poppy! I think his screening and the hair/outfit on this one is perfect to pose with any of your older Poppy’s.  He’s reminding me of an actor or something? I may have to ask David who the inspiration for this one was…

    Dang it.
    Anyway, I agree with Beverly, love your photos always… Can’t wait to see Chip and Poppy up close myself… Sad I missed out on Rock Wedding Romain though. Can’t wait to see your pics of those dolls!

    Congrats! These two, As well as the accompanying Darla, were in the catergory of dolls that I’d love to shoot/do a photo story of but didn’t necesarily want to own. Like, I have a scene & song all mapped out for the trio but don’t desire keeping them long term.

    But they look stunning and I just hope some of those mod poppys, or even Remi, don’t break the bank TOO hard when they hit dollpages & ebay.

    I think Chip looks like Montgomery Clift.

    I like the older Poppys too. Hamptons and all. I am not fond of the one piece outfits – they all look the same: one sheath dress of various kinds, tights and shoes. The MOD era can be fun but there is nothing like the fashion of the 50s.

      Ah yes, I can see Montgomery now that you mention it!

    I think he bears a great resemblance to early Elvis. Dark slicked back thick hair and narrowish face.

    Lovely pics! I love your pose of Poppy on her own. I am really loving this platinum-haired gal. Your pics of Chip make him look even more handsome. He is such a gentlemen! Can’t wait to see you redress/restyle this Poppy :).

    Andrea, that’s what I thought, too! The slicked back hair reminded me of Elvis, LOL. :D

    I seriously have to stop my subscription to your blog, cause the minute I saw this set – *scream*

    I freaked & am sitting on my hands (well..when I get done typing! lol!) in an attempt to not stalk them down for my collection. From day 1, I swore I wouldn’t start collecting Poppy, but oh..how I *must* own this girl too!

    *face palm* I’m scared to attend convention! It will be my downfall! haha!

      LOL – I have to be honest and tell you that Poppy will make her way to your house one day! Have you been to convention before?
