So since the convention email came out all I can think about is the NuFace girls! Which one will be the event exclusive? Which one will be the centerpiece one? Will there be another one that pops up as the convention or companion doll?  They could do it! Remember the year Giselle was up there.  Oh gawd, please oh please let one of those girls be the companion or convention doll!! Anyway, because I’ve been thinking about them the past week I decided that someone needed redressing.  So the twins got to model a new set of dresses by PetraElise.  I’ve actually had these outfits for months, but you know… pregnancy & babies… 

I’m super happy I got the time today to shoot them!  Baby Nate is getting on a predictable schedule which means I know when I have an hour to myself while he naps.  So I redress one day and shoot the next! I’m hoping to shoot on a more regular basis now that I’m feeling better, less tired (baby Nate is sleeping 6 hour stretches at night now) and just plain excited about the new dolls coming and convention being so close!  But before the girls show off their new duds, it’s time for Baby Nate Spam!!!!

It Girl – finally redressed!

First order of business… BABY NATE SPAM!!!!

nate nat1

 

 

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes!  I’m doing better now at 3 1/2 weeks post partum.  Healing is slower than anticipated because I thought I’d be back at crossfit at week 4.  Well that’s NOT happening, LOL.  I will be waiting the full 6 weeks and get the clear from my doctor before getting back to working out.  The hubcap had taken 4 weeks off work and has just decided to take an extra week so he’ll be home until the 25th! It’s been nice having him to help me out and it will be an adjustment once it’s just me and Nate on a daily basis, but I’ll manage.  Lack of sleep has been the hardest, but the last 3 nights Nate’s been sleeping almost 5 hours stretches, so I’m thankful for that!!! I do admit that nothing prepares you for motherhood, LOL, you’re just thrown in the deep end of the pool immediately.  But it’s all worth it when I see his little face looking up at me.  Love that guy!!

Okay, so I finally got around to redressing It Girl.  She’s definitely my favorite doll of the year!!! I honestly don’t know if anything coming out soon or at convention will top her??!!!  She has a rockabilly vibe going on so of course that meant she had to get a flower in her hair and some leopard print to rock.  I get to take her on Sunday to my local doll meet, so I’ll take some pics there of everyone’s goodies and share those later that evening.  It’s our first real meet up in quite awhile because both myself and another member (Jen of JennyGrey designs) had baby boys a few weeks apart.  So we’ll be showing off our little guys along with dolls! Alrighty then, I guess that’s it for now!!  Hope to get used to Nate’s schedule so I can get more posts up.  I have the twins redressed and ready to shoot next.

xoxo, Shuga

Glamourous Darling & It Girl

Just realized I didn’t put up the promo shots of these lovely ladies from IT.  I’m loving all 3, but the redhead is my favorite and with the help of my friends I was able to get her! Hoping she arrives before Baby Nate does so I can do a quick photoshoot!  And remember this week the Spy Poppy’s are scheduled to arrive too!  I’m uber excited to have Agent Lotta Danger in my hands!

Evening Ingenue Poppy Parker

So yesterday I think most of us were shocked to see a Poppy used for the IFDC IT Direct Salesroom doll!  I know I was! I mean, it’s never been done before.  Sure, I know it’s Poppy’s 5th anniversary, so they’re pulling out all the stops for her this year but… Poppy at IFDC!!! Now I don’t even know what to think about tonight’s convention & companion dolls??!!! Will IT just go full tilt crazy and give us 2 more? Or will be see some other characters like in years past.  I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO THINK!!!! Either way it’s made for an interesting convention!

It’s definitely been hard for me to be at home this year.  (boo hoo for me) Missing my friends, missing seeing the dolls in person.  Deboxing and photographing there with friends.  But I wanted to say thank you to everyone on Facebook last night as it actually turned out to be fun discussing with all of you.  And now I know how it is for all of you these years past when I’m at convention and you’re waiting on info! 

Oh! And they were giving out “Oscars” last night at the event and I guess they had online voting and I won “Photographer of the Year”!! So that was kind of fun to find out from my friends there! Sad to miss it, but now it makes me inspired to shoot some more as I have been slacking lately (blame the baby!).  But thanks to all who voted! I am honored! and thanks to Elisa for going up and accepting on my behalf!

Okay, off to do some walking today as we are 6 days away from my scheduled induction of this baby.  Hoping to get things kick started so he comes on his own naturally and I don’t need to take that route.  As much as I want the baby to come today, is it weird that I don’t want it to interfere with the reveal of the dolls tonight and the excitement I’ll be feeling?  LOL, that’s a true collector at heart I think! Okay baby, you can come like in the next couple of hours or after 9pm tonight and I’ve seen the dolls!

Rockin’ Romance Jem is the SDCC Hasbro Exclusive!

I was waiting to see which Jem they’d do for ComicCon this year! And it looks like Rockin’ Romance Jem was chosen!  She’s available only at ComicCon for $139.99.  I did the Hasbro line 2 years there and it is a hassle, but then again, any exclusive there is a hassle to get.  Hoping the hubcap chooses to do Hasbro this year, but I won’t know until it gets closer.  

But this was in our notice::: For those who cannot attend ComicCon in person, please note that a portion of the total edition size will be set aside and sold online at http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ the week after the show.  I don’t remember them doing that last year?  Or did they? Well, at least those of you not attending will have a chance.  And, here she is!

Joyous Celebration Poppy Parker (WClub Exclusive)

So I totally spaced yesterday and forgot to post this gorgeous Poppy! Unfortunately she’s a Wclub exclusive, so she’s not available to everyone.  I’m totally loving they used the Bergdorf screening on her!! I think pretty much 99.9% of everyone is in love with her.

WClub Event Doll: High Visibility AGNES

So of course the event ended with an event doll for those WClub members that choose to order her.  I know alot of people were hoping for Agnes and IT served her up to them as a gorgeous redhead!  Let me know what you think about this giftset.  I’m not an updo/gown person, so I’m teetering on the fence about buying her, but think she’d redress well so in the end I’ll probably get her.
